AEW Revolution had a stacked match card, and every match had at least one ex-WWE superstar. Since the formation of All Elite Wrestling, many WWE stars have jumped ship from Vince McMahon’s company to AEW. WWE stars have a significant hand in building AEW, but at Revolution, it seems the homegrown talents were superior.

AEW wrestlers show their superiority over ex-WWE superstars

AEW Revolution was LIVE from the Chase Center in San Francisco, California. The opening bout was between Chris Jericho and Ricky Starks. ‘The Stroke Daddy’ hit his finisher on Le Champion to take the win and the WWE legend lost.

The following match was a ‘Final Burial’ match between Jake Perry ‘Jungle Boy’ and Christian Cage. There was quick aggression as soon as the match started. They fought towards the stage where the coffin was set. Perry connected a Con-Chair-To on the former WWE star and rolled him in the coffin. Even though some fans mocked this gimmick match, they put on a great show.

The AEW Women’s Championship triple threat match saw Saraya as favorable to win, but that didn’t happen. Jamie Hayter retained the title by pinning Ruby Soho. There was significant action by all three women in the ring. Also, after the match, Soho joined hands with Saraya and Toni Storm.

The Texas Death match was the violence between Jon Moxley and Hangman Adam Page. They used barbed wires-wrapped chairs and tables, bricks, and even a fork. It was a solid match and Hangman won when Mox tapped out after Adam hanged him over the top rope by a chain.

Samoa Joe vs Wardlow for the TNT Championship was a short match. The Wardaddy attacked Joe as soon as the bell rang, but the tables were turned quickly. Wardlow locked Joe in a chokehold and as the former WWE star passed out, The Wardaddy was the new TNT Champion.

The Fatal 4-Way tag title bout tag team match was the one before the main event. The Gunns defended their titles against The Acclaimed, Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett and Danhausen and Orange Cassidy. After the match, FTR returned to AEW to challenge for the AEW tag titles.

The main event was the highlight of the AEW Revolution. MJF and Bryan Danielson’s 60-min ironman match ended in a draw. Surprisingly, Tony Schiavone shared Tony Khan’s message of restarting the match in a ‘Sudden Death’ stipulation. MJF returned his title after wrestling for over an hour.

Out of eight, the AEW originals won seven matches defeating the former WWE superstars. This is a major feat for AEW as they booked their homegrown talent strong.
