Here is the full match card for AEW Revolution: 

1.Kenny Omega (C) vs. Jon Moxley AEW Championship (Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch)

Kenny Omega is the proud Champion and has gallivanted to Impact, creating waves there. Jon Moxley, settling his business with Kenta in NJPW, has turned his attention back to Omega. 

The stipulation is pure hell, and the Exploding Barbed Wires match is exactly what it sounds like. The ring ropes will be replaced with barbed wires which have a live electric current running through them.

This is one of the most diabolic stipulations, and both Superstars are at huge risk as they step into the ring. Jon Moxley is right in his playground. He has wrestled the bloodiest fights and is no stranger to the most vicious stipulations. 

Kenny Omega has fought in different parts of the world and is one of the most experienced wrestlers in the business. Only time will tell who crawls out as Champion in this battle of endurance. Either way, the proceedings will be shocking (pun intended).

2.Young Bucks (C) vs. Chris Jericho & MJF (AEW World Tag Team Championship Match)

Chris Jericho has let go of Sammy Guevara and has a new partner- MJF. The two aim to decorate their union with gold as they look to take the AEW World Tag Team Championship away from the Young Bucks, who have safely held it so far. 

As the two aim to win, Sammy Guevara will certainly be watching closely.

3.Hikaru Shida (C) vs. Ryo Mizunami (AEW Women’s Championship)

Ryo Mizunami powered through and won the eliminator tournament on the latest episode of Dynamite, choosing to make her intentions clearer than ever by attacking the Champion. 

Shida actually entered the ring to congratulate Mizunami but was instead almost blindsided. However, the attempt was ineffective, and the Champion punched Mizunami down instead, proving why she is still Champion. 

The two will attempt to settle the winner once and for all, with the AEW Women’s Championship on the line. Hikaru Shida has had a long and powerful reign and intends on showing Mizunami just why that is.

4.Darby Allin and Sting vs. Brian Cage and Ricky Starks (Street Fight)

The AEW TNT Champion will not defend his title but will join Sting in settling a personal vendetta instead. Brian Cage delivered a huge Powerbomb to ‘The Icon’ which turned a lot of eyes, and Stinger wants revenge. 

The two will team up to fight Brian Cage and Rocky Starks and will try to put them in their place. This is the first time Sting will be fighting in a match since 2015, when he fought against Triple H at WrestleMania which was his final appearance in WWE.

5.“Hangman” Adam Page vs. Matt Hardy

Matt Hardy has turned heel again and has Hangman on his radar this time. Page has had a fall from grace from his time with Kenny Omega but aims to make Matt Hardy a notch under his belt for a glorious comeback. 

The wager? The winner will take all of the loser’s earnings for the first quarter of this year! Hangman and Hardy will both literally be running for the money. 

6.Cody Rhodes vs Scorpio Sky vs Lance Archer vs Penta El Zero Miedo vs Max Caster vs TBA (Face of the Revolution Ladder Match)

All the listed Superstars will compete for an opportunity to challenge for the AEW TNT Championship. Darby Allin comformably holds it for now but will soon have to defend. 

However, this isn’t the best part about this match. One competitor is yet to be announced and on the latest episode of Dynamite, a debuting Paul Wight (Big Show in WWE), assured fans it was a ‘Hall of Fame’ worthy talent. 

Fans are excited to see who it is, and it looks like Tony Khan has something huge up his sleeve.

7. Miro and Kip Sabian vs. Orange Cassidy and Chuck Taylor

Miro has been criticized for being held back as a wedding man by a lot of his rivals, and he intends on unleashing the true beast on Orange Cassidy and Chuck Taylor on Sunday. 

With Kip Sabian by his side, he will take on the one man who has no difficulty taking on enraged men- Orange Cassidy. The laid-back denim-wearing star counters angry opponents with his composed yet effective style, which could agitate Miro into reckless decisions.
