Thoughts & Predictions

Tomorrow night, live from Orlando, Florida, is AEW Revolution. It’s a packed card from start to finish and dare I say it, probably the biggest show in AEW history. I am actually excited about this one. I’m so excited in fact, that I’m breaking out the Miss Cleo crystal ball, the Gary Spivey wig, and even the Jeane Dixon advice column. Yes, my friends, it’s prediction time. We have a lot of ground to cover so let’s get to it. Let’s do this.

AEW Champion Hangman Page vs. Adam Cole.

This one has me torn because I really don’t think that it’s time yet for the Hangman to lose the AEW World Championship. But, and you knew there would be a but here, Adam Cole BayBay. He’s hot and a damn good wrestler and he would make a great champion for AEW. I’m torn on this one, but I think that we’ll see Page get some more time with the belt to show what’s he’s capable of and prove himself worthy as the face of AEW.

Winner and STILL Champion: Hangman Adam Page

AEW Women’s Champion Dr. Britt Baker vs. Thunder Rosa.

Did I see something online about Thunder Rosa working with an injury? I’m not a big Rosa fan, but if this is true, it gives me much respect for Miss Thunder. Baker is so good and has been an excellent champion, I hate to see her lose the belt, but I think that is exactly what will happen here. Baker has been the champion for a while and I think it’s time to switch things up a bit. Let’s switch roles and see how Baker does chasing the belt for a while.

Winner and NEW AEW Women’s Champion: Thunder Rosa

AEW Tag Team Champions Luchasaurus & Jungle Boy vs. ReDRagon vs. The Young Bucks.

Are the Bucks and ReDragon on the same page or will they be fighting each other in the attempt to get those title belts? And will the Jurassic Express have to battle a cohesive unit that’s united against them, or will it be every team for themselves as it should be? It’s a tough call to be sure. I was watching Riverdale last night on Netflix, an awesome, but weird show, and Jungle Boy’s daddy, actor Luke Perry (RIP), played the father of Archie Andrews on that show. So Jungle Boy already lost his father a couple of years ago and Jurassic Express lost their third member, Marko Stunt when his AEW contract was not renewed. They’ve had enough loss in their lives. Let’s have them keep their tag team titles (for now).

Winners and STILL AEW Tag Team Champions: Luchasaurus & Jungle Boy

MJF vs. CM Punk in a Dog Collar Match.

This has been the best build for a match that I’ve seen in years and now it’s time for the payoff. Regardless of who wins, it’s going to be a letdown when the match ends and the rivalry is over. If we hadn’t had that big beatdown on Punk this past Wednesday, I’d say that MJF will be the winner, but since that happened, I’m not so sure. I think the deciding factor will be Wardlow. Will he get involved and protect the man who “owns his contract”, or will he finally have had enough and snap? I’ll go with the latter and as a result, Punk wins.

Winner: CM Punk

Face of the Revolution Ladder Match: Keith Lee vs. Wardlow vs. Powerhouse Hobbs vs. Ricky Starks vs. Orange Cassidy vs. Christian Cage.

Let’s eliminate the dead weight here. Hobbs, Stark, Cassidy, and Christian will NOT win. I’d love to see Starks or Christian get the win, but I’m not confident in their chances. It’s either going to be Keith Lee, to help his push and move him up the ladder or it’ll be Wardlow, to set the table for a confrontation with MJF. Maybe I’m thinking too far ahead, but let’s go with Wardlow, so he can win and MJF, for retribution of Wardlow costing him the match against Punk, demands the title opportunity that Wardlow has earned. And then, let the chips fall where they way.

Winner: Wardlow

AEW TBS Champion Jade Cargill vs. Tay Conti.

I love Tay and she’s getting better every week, but she’s not ready to be the AEW TBS Champion just yet.

Winner and STILL AEW TBS Champion: Jade Cargill

Bryan Danielson vs. Jon Moxley.

This is another one that could go either way. It’s going to be a good match and there will be blood. Moxley has already guaranteed that. There are no stipulations, so we could have a non-finish for this match to leave everything status-quo. AEW doesn’t seem to like the DQ’s or count-outs though. Let’s go for a pin and win by Moxley. Why not?

Winner: Jon Moxley

Chris Jericho vs. Eddie Kingston.

Kingston needs a win to stay relevant. Jericho is good, win or lose. It doesn’t matter. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Santana and Ortiz get involved at some point, and hell, maybe we’ll even see Jake Hager too. Who knows? At the end of the match, I expect we’ll see Kingston be the man to get his arm raised in victory.

Winner: Eddie Kingston

A.H.F.O.’s Andrade El Ídolo & Matt Hardy & Isiah Kassidy) vs. Sammy Guevara & Sting & Darby Allin.

This should be a fun match, but looking at the two teams, which man of the six stands out as just there to take the fall. Expect for Isiah Kassidy to be DELETED, as his team gets a big check in the “L” column.

Winners: Sammy Guevera, Sting & Darby Allin

Buy-In Matches

HOOK vs. QT Marshall.

I like QT and he’s a great character, but he’s fighting HOOK. He’s going down and going down faster than a victim of Fuego Del Sol’s Tornado DDT.

Winner: HOOK

Leyla Hirsch vs. Kris Statlander.

I think that Statlander has dropped the alien gimmick, but she’s still a good wrestler with some great moves in that ring. Hirsch is good too, but Statlander gets the win here.

Winner: Kris Statlander

House of Black (Malakai Black & Brody King & Buddy Matthews) vs. Death Triangle (PAC & Penta & Erik Redbeard)

Why is this match on the Buy-In and not the actual PPV, I have no idea. I am so jacked to see Buddy Matthews and Erik Redbeard in AEW now, it’s not even funny. I just hope this match gets plenty of time to play out and allow everyone to do their thing. As for who wins, it’s a tough call, but I have to go with the House of Black.

Winners: House of Black (Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews)
