AEW Revolution: The Buy-In
Riho and Thunder Rosa vs. Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. and Maki Itoh
Baker said that Rebel was attacked by Nyla Rose and that is why she was not cleared to wrestle tonight. Baker brought out Rebel, who was on a crutch. Maki Itoh was announced as Rebel’s partner. Itoh’s popularity has grown tremendously on soical media in recent weeks.
Despite being on a crutch, there was some interference from Rebel at ringside. There were a couple of clunky spots but overall it was a good match and the pace picked up towards the end with Rosa and Baker. Late in the match, Rebel got up on the ring apron and Baker was pushed into her. Rosa hit a Death Valley Driver and almost pinned Baker. Rebel knocked out Rosa with the crutch and that allowed Baker to pin her.
AEW Revolution: Main Card
AEW World Tag Team Championship
Young Bucks (Champions) vs. Chris Jericho and MJF
A lot of the early offense came from Jericho and MJF with some help from Wardlow. Matt was in the match for several minutes until he was finally able to tag Nick, who cleaned house on MJF and Jericho with kicks, knees, a facebuster and Canadian Destroyer on MJF.
Late in the match, there was a very close near fall after MJF hit Matt with the Heat Seeker after Jericho hit Matt in the back with a baseball bat. Moments later, Jericho accidentally hit Wardlow with the Judas Effect. Jericho tried the lionsault but Matt and Nick caught him with kicks and the BTE Trigger and MJF broke up the pin attempt.

The order of entry was determined by a lottery. A new team joined the match every 90 seconds and tag teams are out of the match when both competitors are eliminated.
QT Marshall apparently turned heel because he eliminated The Gunn Club (they are part of the Nightmare Family) and then Marshall eliminated himself and he spat at Dustin Rhodes.
The final four men in the match were Jungle Boy, Fenix, Pac, and Silver. There was a great exchange between Silver and Pac before Fenix eliminated Silver with a kick to the head. Pac was eliminated by Jungle Boy and Fenix eliminated Jungle Boy after an amazing sequence of moves.

AEW Women’s World Championship
Hikaru Shida (Champion) vs. Ryo Mizunami
There was some questionable showboating from Mizunami early in the match but then things picked up with some high impact strikes. There was a close near fall when Mizunami pinned Shida after hitting a leg drop off the top rope.
Shida pinned Mizunami after several Tamashii kicks to the head. Nyla Rose, Britt Baker and Maki Itoh ran out to attach Shida after the match. Rebel hit Shida in the back with her crutch.
Miro and Kip Sabian vs. Best Friends
Miro and Sabian attacked Best Friends before the match got started. Miro shoved Chuck Taylor’s head through a door window.
Miro brought a bloodied Chuck Taylor into the ring and Taylor insisted on starting the match. Orange Cassidy was nowhere to be seen so this started out as a handicap match.
After a couple of minutes, Cassidy made his way ou and he hit Miro with the Orange Punch. Late in the match, Cassidy was shoved by Miro into Penelope Ford and then Miro hit a roundhouse kick on Cassidy. The shove appeared to be intentional by Miro. Sabian checked on his wife but Miro ran out to shove him in the ring. Miro won the match by forcing Taylor to tap out to the Accolade submission.
It’s looking like Miro and Sabian will be splitting up soon since Miro had no concern for Ford’s safety.
Backstage interview: MJF and Chris Jericho said there will be a change made to The Inner Circle this Wednesday on Dynamite.
Big Money Match
Hangman Adam Page vs. Matt Hardy
They brawled outside of the ring for the first few minutes of the match. Hardy stomped the steel steps into Page’s hand to try to disable his arm from trying the buckshot lariat clothesline.
Page was favoring his arm throughout the match and had trouble getting in the ring after taking a Twist of Fate on the floor. Late in the match, Page had the match won with the Deadeye but Private Party jumped on the apron to distract the referee. Page took out Private Party but this gave Hardy time to recover and hit a Side Effect and Twist of Fate. Page kicked out of the pin attempt.
The Dark Order ran out to take out Private Party at ringside and then Page hit the Buckshot Lariat to win the match. Page hugged and The Dark Order and they all drank beer in the ring.

Jack Evans tried to get involved with the boombox but 10 ran out to give him a spinebuster on the stage. Lots of crazy spots including Penta launching himself off a ladder bridge onto the competitors at ringside. Page hit the splash mountain on Sky onto the ladder and Archer was wedged in between the ladder. Penta hit an insane looking Destroyer on Cody on a ladder bridge that was set up outside of the ring. The trainers went to check on Cody, who went into this match with an injured shoulder.

Christian’s deal with AEW is for multiple years.
Sting and Darby Allin vs. Brian Cage and Ricky Starks
The match took place inside of a warehouse in Jacksonville and it was taped earlier today. For their entrance, Allin was shown hanging on to the back of a pickup truck that was being driven by Sting. As they arrived at the warehouse, a bunch of “hoodlums” with Darby Allin masks surrounded the ring in the warehouse.
Sting and Starks wrestled in the ring s Cage and Allin fought in another part of the warehouse. Sting then fought Starks around the warehouse. They cut over to Cage picking up Allin over his shoulders and up a flight of stairs before slamming him on a trash can. Eventually, all four men made it up to the second floor of the warehouse. Allin broke a bottle on Cage’s head and then he and Sting slammed him through a table. Powerhouse Hobbs and Hook both attacked Allin as Cage attacked Sting. Hobbs and Cage then picked up and tossed Allin through a glass window pane as they turned their focus on Sting.
Back on the first floor, Sting took everyone out after Allin tossed him a bat from the second floor. Allin did a crazy dive off the second or third floor onto Cage. Sting pinned Starks in the ring after hitting the Scorpion Death Drop.
AEW World Championship – Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch
Kenny Omega vs. Jon Moxley
Referee Bryce Remsburg was wearing a fire resistant suit. Jim Ross said Terry Funk called him last night to give his thoughts on the match and Terry feels bad for both of them because of what will happen with the barbed wire. There was barbed wire on the ropes and barbed wire boards in two corners of the ring. There was barbed wire set up outside of the ring as well.
They both tried to push each other into the barbed wire at the start of the match. Moxley brought in a trash can with weapons including a barbed wife baseball bat that he used on Moxley on the stage. Mox took powder in the eyes and then was thrown into the barbed wife and explosives detonated. Mox was busted open after taking a Kiraru Crusher on the trash can. Mox was sent into a barbed wire board in the corner.
Omega was shoved face first into the barbed wire on two consecutive times so there were two consecutive explosions. Mox then hit a suplex on Omega through another barbed wire board. Mox hit a release German suplex on Omega before slamming him on a barbed wire chair.
Omega pushed Moxley into the barbed wire and an explosion went off but some of the explosion apparently caught Omega in the eye. Both men fought on the ring apron and Omega hit a Paradigm shift through the boards at ringside that set off more explosions.
Back in the ring, Moxley punched Omega with barbed wire around his fist. Omega hit a pair of V-triggers and the One Winged Angel but Moxley put his foot on the rope to set off an explosion the went off in Omega’s face. The Good Brothers ran in with baseball bats to attack Moxley. Omega used an exploding barbed wire baseball bat and it exploded on Moxley’s face. Omega hit a One Winged Angel on Mox onto the chair and he pinned him to retain the title.
Omega and The Good Brothers were still in the ring celebrating but the clock was still ticking so Don Callis ran in to tell them to get out of the ring. Omega handcuffed Moxley’s hands behind his back as The Good Brothers continued their attack with the barbed wire bat.
Eddie Kingston ran in to help Omega as the clock counted down but it was too late because the explosions went off.
