AEW’s next PPV is right around the corner. Revolution is set to take place on Sat., Feb. 29, 2020, from Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Illinois.
Here is how the card looks at the moment:
- AEW World Championship: Chris Jericho (c) vs Jon Moxley
In an effort to weasel out of a potential showdown with Jon Moxley, Chris Jericho offered membership into the Inner Circle. Moxley declined and broke a champagne bottle over Jericho’s head. Jericho repaid the favor by stabbing Moxley in the eye with a spike. Moxley defeated PAC in a #1 contender match to earn the honor of attempting to take the gold from Le Champion.
- AEW World Tag Team Championship: Hangman Page & Kenny Omega (c) vs The Young Bucks
Hangman Page and Kenny Omega were in the dumps with singles slumps. They found surprising success by teaming together. Hangman and Omega won the tag titles from SCU. The Young Bucks got their shot by winning a #1 contender tag team battle royal. There is also the issue of Hangman not wanting to associate with the Elite anymore. This has caused Hangman to run his mouth at the Bucks, especially when he becomes Drunkman.
- Cody Rhodes vs MJF
MJF turned on Cody Rhodes when Cody was competing for the World Championship against Chris Jericho. Cody said he would give anything to get in the ring with MJF. MJF obliged with three stipulations. Cody had to take ten lashes from MJF’s belt. Done. Cody had to defeat MJF’s muscleman, Wardlow, in a cage match. Done. All that is left is Cody keeping his cool and not laying his hands on MJF until their match at Revolution.
- Dustin Rhodes vs Jake Hager
Jake Hager broke Dustin Rhodes’ arm by slamming it with a car door. Rhodes wants retribution.
- Darby Allin vs Sammy Guevara
Sammy Guevara injured Darby Allin’s throat by slamming it with a skateboard. Allin wants retribution.
That’s five matches. AEW’s past big events have had six to eight contests on the main card. One spot will likely go to Nyla Rose defending the AEW Women’s World Championship. Likely candidates seem to be Kris Statlander, Big Swole, or a three-way with both. Another match could be some form of the Dark Order against SCU. There might even be the big reveal of the Exalted One. That leaves prominent names such as the Lucha Bros, PAC, Jurassic Express, and others possibly off the show.
Is the card for Revolution attractive enough to open your wallet? How would you fill in the last few matches?
