Send them home happy. Wrestling has been in a strange place since the Coronavirus pandemic began and things are only starting to improve. There are only so many things that can be done as normal at the moment but every few weeks are bringing the occasional improvement. That wast he case again this weekend, though it came after a less than stellar moment.
The ending to Sunday’s AEW Revolution pay per view did not go as well as expected. The main event featured an Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch, with the ring wired to explode after thirty minutes. After thirty minutes, the countdown came to an end and a rather small set of explosions took place, which was not well received. Now we have the first reaction from AEW.
He said it. Check out the post Revolution comments:
A video has surfaced of Jon Moxley, who lost in the main event and was in the ring when the countdown ended, from after Revolution ended. Moxley mocked AEW World Champion Kenny Omega’s ability to build an exploding ring before thanking the fans for coming to the show. He also talked about how the roster wanted to work hard to make sure the fans got their money’s worth. AEW has had fans in attendance for the last several months in limited quantities.
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that might have needed another line of thinking. Moxley had just been through a war with Omega, so why was he able to cut a promo like this? You couldn’t bring out another wrestler to do the same thing? Anyway, Moxley is a good choice for such a spot as he can talk rather well, though it might not have been the best spot after the fairly lackluster end of the pay per view.
