(Amin’s Thoughts) — This was a solid match. Garcia wasn’t ready to win the TNT Title. A good showing from Garcia as the crowd was behind in the closing stretch. I like seeing Christian watch because his style of match is mostly different from everyone else. The slow pacing works because it helped build drama in the closing moments where the crowd got behind Garcia’s near falls. I’m really not a fan of seeing interference especially the first match on a PPV card. The interference was their way to protect Garcia and keep the title on Christian. AEW has a Canada tour coming up. I could see Copeland getting his rematch with Christian for the TNT Title on the Toronto show. (⭐️⭐️⭐️1/4)

The crowd cheered as Danielson eventually shook Kingston’s hand. They bowed to each other. Danielson left the ring. The crowd chanted for Kingston. 

(Amin’s Thoughts) — This was a tremendous hard hitting back and forth match. I really liked the story with Danielson targeting Kingston’s arm wanting to get the submission win. Kingston was just great playing the babyface who refuses to quit. A great moment for Kingston getting the clean win plus having Danielson shake him hand in the post-match angle was all good stuff. Side note, Nigel McGuinness has been going really hard heel on commentary for Danielson matches. I’m guessing that’s the direction they are going Danielson and McGuinness for All In. (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/4) 

They aired a video package for the “All Star” Scramble match. Hook got a solid reaction but wasn’t anything blow away. The crowd cheered as Adam Cole came out with Wardlow. Chris Jericho came out to a very noticeable mixed reaction from the crowd. The crowd did sing along to Judas but it wasn’t as energetic as the crowd used to sing.

(Amin’s Thoughts) — This was a chaotic match but not in a good way. There were lots of sloppy moments especially with Dante Martin who’s one of the best high flyers. The crowd did have their fun chanting MEAT when the big men were involved. This could’ve been a bit better if they trimmed at least five minutes off the match. Wardlow winning was the right call after his recent promos calling out the AEW World Champion. Side note, can AEW just drop their Rankings. Why should anyone care about the ranking if can just get a title match by winning a scramble. (⭐️⭐️1/2)

  • The big angle came after the match. The crowd cheered as Kyle O’Really appeared from the crowd. O’Reilly and Strong shared a hug. Mike Bennet offered O’Really an Undisputed Kingdom shirt. O’Reilly refused to wear the shirt. O’Reilly placed the shirt on Strong’s shoulder. O’Reilly whispered something into Strong’s ear. O’Reilly left the ring. O’Reilly had an emotional look on his face. 

(Amin’s Thoughts) — This was a good match but never felt liked it reached great. Orange has had a great run of title matches as International Champion. Orange’s onscreen character is rather stale and it got tiresome seeing him take a beating but then find a way to retain the title. Strong is a really good wrestler and the way he kept targeting the back was great heel work. Strong had to win the title because Undisputed Kingdom has been a really cold act. I was glad to see Strong win the title clean without interference from his Undisputed Kingdom buddies. A really cool moment seeing Kyle O’Reilly return. This now adds an interesting twist because O’Reilly has lots of history with Strong. O’Reilly just returned so he shouldn’t join Undisputed Kingdom right away. They should build it up if that’s the eventual plan to have O’Reilly replace Wardlow in the Undisputed Kingdom. (⭐️⭐️⭐️1/4)

Jon Moxley and Claudio Castagnoli came out from the crowd to a big reaction. Moxley and Claudio were wearing Road Warriors gear. Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler got a big reaction from the crowd.

(Amin’s Thoughts) — This was a very good tag team match. The crowd was noticeably quiet for the early portion which was surprising considering these are two popular teams. The drama really picked up in the closing moments especially when Harwood came up bleeding badly. I was kinda surprised seeing BCC getting the win. You would think Claudio and Moxley have to be in the running be the next AEW World Tag Team Champions after this win. The match was very good but at no point did it feel you were seeing something great on PPV. (⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2)

Deonna Purrazzo came out to another mild reaction. The crow cheered as Toni Storm’s original music play. Mariah May came out dressed as Toni Storm. That was pretty cool and was the highlight of the overall match. “Timeless” Toni Storm made her entrance in black and white. Storm came out with Luther.

Storm was tapping. Purrazzo knocked May off the ring apron. Storm caught Purrazzo with Storm Zero for the win to retain the title. 

(Amin’s Thoughts) — This was basically the same standard of Women’s match we usually see on Dynamite. The only difference is Women’s matches on Dynamite get lesser time for the most part. Purrazzo and Storm just worked the most basic wrestling match. The match was also hurt because the crowd reaction for Purrazzo just isn’t there. Storm playing the Timeless character has been entertaining to watch. Storm hasn’t had anywhere near close to a great match as champion in this new Timeless character. The biggest highlight was May dressed up as classic Toni Storm. (⭐️⭐️1/4) 

Don Callis joined commentary for the next match. Konosuke Takeshita came out to a strong heel reaction. Will Ospreay received the biggest reaction on the show to this point. Ospreay felt like a big star.

They announced Ospreay vs. Fletcher for Dynamite. 

(Amin’s Thoughts) — This was an incredible action packed match from start to finish. Just an absolute tremendous showing from both Ospreay and Takeshita as they delivered more than enough bang for your buck. Takeshita is one of the most talented wrestlers on the rosters. I was glad to see Takeshita get a chance to work a showcase match with Ospreay. I just hope Takeshita doesn’t get lost in the shuffle with Ospreay’s arrival to AEW. The recent booking of Takeshita since beating Kenny Omega clean twice on PPV hasn’t been great. Ospreay showed once again why he’s the best wrestler in the world. This was the perfect debut match for Ospreay who’s now officially part of the AEW roster. The crowd treated Ospreay like a superstar. Hopefully, AEW doesn’t fumble the ball on Ospreay who should be the babyface star in the company. A tremendous match. (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)

(Amin’s Thoughts) — This was a very good action packed match with everyone getting a chance to shine. I was glad to see Joe keep hold of the title as he’s been great as champion. They have program with Joe and Wardlow ready to go for the AEW Dynasty PPV. The crowds have been behind Strickland and him not using Prince Nana’s crowd just solidified what should be his babyface turn. I get Excalibur tried to explain Hangman tapped so Strickland couldn’t win the title. However, that’s not how the finish came while watching the actual match. Hangman needed to tap in front of Strickland to make the finish they were going for work. (⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2)

The broadcast ended. That just sucked to not see Sting’s full speech on the show.

(Amin’s Thoughts) — This was just an incredible spectacle of a match. I could see why Sting wanted The Young Bucks as his last match. The Young Bucks were just awesome playing such unlikable heels. The Bucks were also great when they needed to bump and sell for Sting. You could argue The Bucks just turned heel and it would’ve added more heat if they beat Sting. Credit to The Young Bucks if they wanted to see Sting go out as a hero to the crowd in attendance and watching at home. The Darby Allin spot off the ladder was completely insane. I give Darby all the credit for putting his body at risk to give the crowd a showing. The tremendous video package. To seeing his sons getting involved was all great to see. Sting taking some crazy bumps and then no-selling to the crowd in attendance joy was just so fun to watch as a fan. Sting getting the win in his last match. The only disappointment was that we didn’t get the chance to see Sting’s full speech as the PPV cut off. This was the perfect send-off match for the Icon and Wrestling Legend that is Sting. (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️) 


AEW Revolution was a tremendous PPV. All Star Scramble and the Storm/Purrazzo were the only two matches that were not good. The rest of the show was filled with some great wrestling matches. Will Ospreay’s official AEW debut was fantastic as he looked like a superstar in his win over Konosuke Takeshita. Sting’s final match was an incredible spectacle which closed on a happy note. There’s not more you can ask from a wrestling fan who watched the show. Overall, AEW Revolution gets two thumbs up.
