All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite: AEW Revolution 2024
March 3, 2024 3:59 PM - Season 5 (Specials) - Subscribe

Tonight the wrestling world sends off an Icon, as Sting -- through a history that encompasses almost 40 years in the business, matches across the world, championships in three companies -- has his final match in the same venue where he faced Ric Flair in 1988. With nearly every title being defended, will the greatest match of the night be Sting and Darby defending their tag belts, Samoa Joe defending against the fire and ice of Hangman Page & Swerve Strickland, or the non-title AEW debut of Will By-God Ospreay?

The full card for Revolution:

In WWE -- Seth Rollins
And now in AEW -- The Young Bucks

He did it, Tony Khan actually flexed his big buy-ceps and paid the $$$ for Sting to come out to “Seek and Destroy” one last time. Fuckin’ legend.

The hard thing about being an AEW fan is that every single PPV I wind up thinking well, that’s Match of the Year at least once and then that thought is proven hopelessly shortsighted when the next PPV comes along.

But good gracious is Osprey/Takeshita going to be hard to top.

LOL as five elder millennials in a bar full of wrestling bébés, ours was the only table that completely exploded at that.

Mariah May coming out as rock n roll Toni Storm was (deservedly) overshadowed by Sting's entrance in the same vein, but what a quality moment.

Honestly my only complaint is that Willow/Stat/Skye/Julia should have been on the main card instead of the scramble, but I didn't hate the scramble itself either.

also is it even possible to be hotter, both physically and in wrestling terms, than Swerve Goddamn Strickland? And yet! Not a man in that match was less hot. Truly, an absolute unquestioned top to bottom banger of a PPV.
