Pyro kicks off to welcome us to another exciting edition of AEW
Dynamite as we go straight to ringside for our opening contest! The
champ makes his way out first as we get a recap of what led up to
this match being made officail, followed by the arrival of the
challenger Big Bill, and this match is underway!
AEW All-Atlantic Championship
Big Bill (w/ Big Stokes) vs. AEW All-Atlantic Champion Orange
The match starts off rather slow as Cassidy leaves the ring, clearly
in no rush to deal with the big man. Bill chases him, but things
take a while (including enough time for the champ to steal Stokes’s
shades) before Big Bill starts laying into the champ, sending him
back to the outside as we go to picture-in-picture!
Picture-in-Picture: Big Bill’s dominance over the champion continues
as Stokes sets a table up for the champ to go through, but things
start to turn in the favor of the champ as we come back!
Danhausen comes in to help against Stokes, but is met with a
backhand as the fight between champ and challenger starts to really
heat up! Cassidy with an Orange Punch twice over, but it takes a bit
of fight from Big Bill before OC can land a third one for the pin
and the win!
Winner via pinfall and STILL AEW All-Atlantic Champion: Orange
Danhausen presents him with the title and his backpack before we
shift focus to Moxley backstage after his match. Mox talks about how
he lives for things like this, and how he tried to leave things
alone with Hangman, after they went and beat each other in different
matches. They told Mox his win wasn’t real, that it didn’t count…but
he will leave no doubt that though Page is a good wrestler and a
good man, he is not the same animal as Mox. There is only room for
one animal in AEW, one animal like Mox…and he will die to protect
what is his!
Video Package: Mox/Page and the AEW World Trios Championship are set
We go back to ringside as The Elite make their way to the stage, but
the lights cut out! They come back on and we see the shadows of the
House of Black amongst the Elite…lights go black again, and when
they come back on The Elite are laid out with the HOB holding the
titles! After a quick rundown on what’s to come, we see The Elite
being helped to the back as Samoa Joe makes his way out to the
Back from commercial, we see the rest of the entrants for the Face
of the Revolution Ladder Match make their way to the ring and the
bell sounds to get us underway!
Face of the Revolution Ladder Match
Winner gets a future shot at the TNT Championship
Plenty of chaos awaits us as all the men fight for supremacy here,
not the least of which is Komander facing off against AR Fox only to
be interrupted by Sammy Guevara, who grabs the ladders and starts
setting them up before getting taken out. We see Ortiz and Kingston
fighting to the back as Action Andretti now taken down by Komander,
who takes a big clothesline by Hobbs for his trouble!
Hobbs set the ladder up in the corner and whips Komander in it,
before focusing on AR Fox to take him out. Hobbs goes after Andretti
next, laying him out before Sammy slides into the ring…only to
realize the folly of dealing with Hobbs, sliding right back out.
Takeshita, however, comes in and they go blow for blow until Hobbs
sends Takeshita reeling. Hobbs charges at Takeshita in the corner,
but he ducks out the the way before hitting a suplex on Hobbs! Don
Callis watching from the back as Takeshita is taken out by Sammy,
but he’s sent to the outside by Andretti who then goes for a big
Fox follows suit and we go back to the ring where Komander runs the
ropes from one side of the ring to the other before hitting a big
dive on everyone as we go to picture-in-picture!
Picture-in-Picture: It takes a while for some of the men to get back
in the ring, but it’s Guevara who’s there as the other men start
fighting on the outside again. Andretti comes in and fights Sammy
with ladders, only to take one on the chin (literally) before being
thrown onto the ladder by Sammy!
Guevara sets up the ladders looking to cause even more damage, but
is intercepted by Komander who climbs the ladder himself, his eyes
on the prize until Takeshita stops him, sending him to the outside
before leaping off the ropes! Komander eventually manages to get
back in control, and both men come back in the ring as we come back!
Hobbs, however, catches them and looks for a supelx on Komander
until Fox stops him with a chair to the back. Hobbs responds to this
by hoisting Fox onto his shoulders, hitting a Death Valley Driver
onto the ladder on the outside!
Back in the ring, Sammy makes his way up the ladder but is once
again interrupted by Andretti…before a Falcon Arrow sends both men
onto the ladder! Komander once again walking the ropes here, this
time hitting Fox with a shooting star press onto the ladder!
Komander isn’t done though, and heads back in the ring up a ladder,
before going for the ring that was set up high. Takeshita follows
him, hitting a massive Blue Thunder Bomb from the top of the ladder
to the canvas!
Takeshita clears the other ladder before climbing up the main one,
only for Andretti to leap onto the ladder to face off against
him…but Garcia runs in, shoving them off the ladder! Guevara goes to
work setting up ladders and chairs in a scary fashion before Garcia
sets Andretti on a propped-up ladder! Sammy climbs up the top of the
tallest ladder…and hits a senton onto Andretti, bending that ladder
nearly in half!
Garcia drags Sammy into the ring, setting up a ladder for him before
helping him climb that ladder toward the ring…only for Takeshita to
run in, tipping the ladder over! Takeshita sends Garcia out before
hitting Sammy with a knee, and makes the climb until Hobbs stops
him! Hobbs finds another ladder, setting it up to make the
ascent…and collects the ring for the win!
Winner and earning a TNT Championship opportunity: Powerhouse Hobbs
As replays show us the finish, it’s announced that the title shot
does go down NEXT WEEK as Hobbs faces either Joe or Wardlow. Hobbs
makes his exit with the ring in hand, walking up the ramp to
confront the current champ Joe until Wardlow comes out to join the
standoff. Security tries to keep things under control but Wardlow
goes off on them, allowing Joe to make his escape! Hobbs, however,
is just enjoying the carnage unfold, saying he’s got time as it
pertains to the TNT title situation!
Backstage, we find out that Chuck and Trent are not medically
cleared to be in the Casino Battle Royal…but Danhausen says he and
Orange Cassidy are Best Friends, so they can fill in. Renee asks if
Orange is sure about this…and Orange says “I don’t care, let’s do
it.” So, we have our Best Friends for the Casino Battle Royal!
Back at ringside, Chris Jericho makes his way to the ring for our
next match as we go to commercial!
Back from commercial, Avalon has made it to the ring and this match
Chris Jericho vs. “Pretty” Peter Avalon
Avalon takes the fight to the Ocho early on with a flurry of offense
that forces Jericho to take a breather on the outside…but Avalon
stays on the attack, which eventually comes back inside the ring!
Avalon rakes the back of Jericho before hitting some chops and sends
Jericho to the ropes, before connecting with a pump kick for a
Avalon keeps on the offense by sending Jericho to the corner and
hitting some stomps, keeping the heat firmly on Jericho before
hitting a DDT for another nearfall. Avalon looks ready for another
attack but is caught by surprise with a Codebreaker by Jericho, who
gets the pin and the win!
Winner via pinfall: Chris Jericho
After the match, Chris grabs his bat from the corner and starts
attacking Avalon until Ricky Starks runs down to make the save,
forcing Jericho to escape before grabbing a mic from ringside. He
runs the crowd down, before telling Starks that he’s gonna beat the
hell out of him…and JAS are here to beat up on Starks tonight!
Garcia and Hager trying to break him down as Hager sends Starks down
hard to the canvas, followed by Garcia with a slam of his own. They
send Starks flying into a Judas Effect by Jericho, as JAS gloat over
the fallen Starks. Officials come down to help Starks out as we go
to a word from Hangman Page, who talks about how important this
match at Revolution is to him. Page says Mox can’t take his friends
or his memory away from him, and he can’t take away Hangman’s heart.
This Sunday, Hangman takes everything from Mox…his spot at the top
of the food chain, and everything that comes from it. He will be
bloodthirsty, and Mox will never be the same.
Back at ringside, Renee welcomes Christian Cage to the ring to get
Christian Cage Interview
Renee asks what is going on, as it seemed like things were settled
between him and Jungle Boy. Christian says he looks forward to not
being back in San Fran for the next ten years, before saying he
hated hearing Perry say he’s going to win a singles championship in
2023…because Christian plans to do just that. He asks Jungle Boy if
he wants to just win a title, or if he wants to bet someone for a
Christian points out the hesitation Perry had, which gave Christian
a chance to beat him down instead. He finally realized why Perry
wants to win a title in AEW…he just wants to take that shiny new toy
home and brag about it to his mommy and social media, saying guys
like Perry treat the business like a video game.
Cage has a challenge for Perry at Revolution…not for a wrestling
match, but a fight. The reality of the situation is, Jack Perry is
just his father’s son…because he may have the Hollywood looks, but
doesn’t have what it takes to be in this business. Cage continues to
run Perry down until the lights cut out…and we see a video package
focused on Perry out digging somewhere, showing what went down
between him and Cage in recent months, indicating that Perry is
laying things to rest.
This leaves Cage speechless as we cut backstage, where Tony
Schiavone talks to Britt Baker and Jamie Hayter, as they talk about
the three-way match for the AEW Women’s title at Revolution and the
We’re back at ringside where Matt Hardy makes his way to the ring
followed by Hook, and the bell gets us underway!
If Hook wins he gets to face Big Stokes
Matt Hardy vs. FTW Champion Hook
Hardy gets an early advantage on the champ until Hook turns things
around, sending Hardy out of the ring…and then back in, before The
Firm start going after the champ. This gives Hardy an opening with
some elbows before hitting a neckbreaker on Hook!
Hardy sends Hook to the corner, driving him facefirst into the
turnbuckle until Hook turns things around with a T-Bone suplex! Hook
is in control now as he lays into Hardy with some punches…until
Hardy hits a Snake Eyes! Hardy tries to send Hook up, but Hook
reverses it and takes control with a kick to the face! Hook gets
sent to the steel post in the corner after Hardy ducks away from
another attack, and hits a Side Effect for a nearfall.
Things start to break down as Hardy and Hook get hit on the
turnbuckle, and as the ref checks on Hardy, Stokes removes his cast
and Ethan Page hits Hook with it! Hardy with a cover here and gets a
nearfall…but Hook gets up to his feet and hits a submission forcing
Hardy to tap out!
Winner via submission and STILL FTW Champion: Hook
Stokes is cowering on the outside realizing he soon has to face Hook
in a No DQ match as we go to a video from the House of Black, who
still have the Trios titles as Malakai Black delivers a warning to
Back at ringside, Tori Storm and Saraya come out to the ring as we
go to commercial!
Back from commercial, Riho makes it to the ring and the match is
Toni Storm vs. Riho
Toni rushes Riho at the outset, laying into the first-ever Women’s
Champion with a flurry of hard offense before getting a nearfall.
Riho starts to fight back but is met with a shoulder tackle that
gets a one count for Storm before Riho bridges out, and a running
knee in the corner followed by a suplex gets Riho a nearfall!
Saraya distracts Riho with some harsh words as Storm starts getting
things back in her facer…except Riho hits a roll through and a
double stomp for a nearfall! Riho stays on top of things with a
crossface as Storm crawls toward the ropes, getting a boot on the
bottom rope to force a break of the hold. Saraya chastises Riho some
more and this gives Storm a chance to send Riho off the apron with a
boot, and Saraya attacks her on the outside as the ref checks on
Toni still on the attack now but Hayter and Baker are coming down to
even the odds some as we go to picture-in-picture!
Picture-in-Picture: Storm still on the attack, bringing Riho into
the ring and locking in a chinlock as Riho fights to break the hold.
Storm is forced to let go but stomps away at the former champ, and
then throwing Riho around before going back to more boots to the
head. Riho fights back with a palm strike and this only makes Storm
more mad as she hits a suplex for a nearfall. Storm taunts Baker and
Hayter on the outside before going back to work on Riho, sending her
to the corner before hitting a couple shoulder thrusts and a
snapmare into a full nelson on the canvas. Riho is fighting out of
it, but Storm has it locked in tight. Riho works toward a vertical
base…and just as she stands up, Storm slams her down to the canvas
as we come back!
Storm sends Riho to the corner but Riho answers with a headscissors
takedown, setting her up for a tiger feint kick…but Storm catches
her! Things get close for both women until Riho comes flying off the
ropes with a cross body onto Storm! Riho sends Toni back in the ring
before climbing up top for a double stomp…but Toni rolls slightly to
take less damage, giving her energy to kick out at two!
Riho goes back up but is caught by Storm, who looks for the
piledriver off the corner…but Riho stops her, before going for a
sunset powerbomb. Storm blocks it before hitting a dropkick on
Riho…and the hip attack! Storm with a cover, but Riho narrowly kicks
out! Storm mocks Baker before locking in a cloverleaf, and Baker
hops on the apron. Storm knocks her off…but Riho rolls her up from
behind, grabbing a surprise pin and the win!
Winner via pinfall: Riho
Riho doesn’t get long to celebrate before being attacked by Storm,
and things really break down as Saraya and Hayter go at it before
Ruby Soho runs down. She shoves Saraya aside but pops Hayter in the
face, and all three women go at it before officials break things up!
As things settle down there, we go backstage as we see the returning
Keith Lee alongside Dustin Rhodes, and Lee calls out Swerve and his
associates. This Friday on Rampage we will see Rhodes and Lee team
up as Naturally Limitless…and we will remember their name!
Back at ringside, the Dark Order make their way to the ring for our
next match…only to be blindsided by the #2 team of Blackpool Combat

Video Package: The heated rivalry between Bryan Danielson and MJF
comes to a head at Revolution in a 60-Minute Iron Man Match for the
Back from commercial, we welcome Bryan Danielson to the ring for an
Bryan Danielson Interview
Renee asks Bryan about a post from 2014 by MJF referring to Bryan,
talking about his passion for pro wrestling, and if that changes his
perspective going into the match. Bryan said he retired seven years
ago and two years after he came back, and stated if you fight for
your dreams they come true.
MJF’s music hits, but Bryan shuts him down immediately saying MJF
hates him for all sorts of different reasons…but MJF has done
nothing to deserve or fight for any of the things he says he
deserves. MJF hasn’t fought for that championship, and if there’s
one thing Max deserves…it’s his fiancée leaving him. MJF starts
rushing toward the ring in anger, but Bryan says he’s ready to fight
anytime, running down all the things he’s had to fight before.
Before he came here, Bryan had a job that would’ve paid him for the
rest of his life…but he left to come to AEW, because he wanted to
fight. He’s going to fight for his dreams, and his dream right now
is to become AEW World Champion…and he is willing to fight for it.
At Revolution, MJF better be ready to fight for everything he has
for sixty minutes…and if he doesn’t, he’s going to get his f’ing
head kicked in!
MJF has heard enough, but rushes back up the ramp as the crowd
cheers for Bryan Danielson to close out the show!
