Match of the Night: Kenny Omega vs PAC 30-Minute Iron Man Match

This match without a doubt was the match of the night. These two guys put everything on the line for over 30 minutes. Please watch every single minute of this match as soon as you can. The match starts off with a solid 10-15 minutes of wrestling until PAC pulls out a chair and causes a DQ: 1-0 Kenny Omega. PAC then gets some offense in before hitting a Black Arrow to tie it up at one a piece. In the final seconds of the match, Omega has to hang on as PAC applies the brutalizer- the move that made him pass out at All Out. The time runs out with the score still tied. Before fans can lose their minds, Justin Roberts announces that they will go into sudden death overtime. Of course, Omega gets the win in the rubber match heading into his tag match on Saturday.

Three Thoughts

Women’s Division

The last time I wrote a solo review for AEW, my first thought of the night was about how bad the women’s division was. Now four months later, I’m finally enjoying the women’s division. There are still a few problems, however. Big Swole should not have taken the pin from Shida. That’s really the only problem with that match and the division as a whole currently.

Buildup to the PPV

They did a lot of good things on this show building up for Revolution on Saturday. We had the weigh-in which saw Moxley face off against Jericho, Darby go at it with Sammy, and Dustin get thrown into the Dippin’ Dots by Hager. We also got the first singles match for Orange Cassidy announced, a Cody vs MJF promo, and a fantastic interview between Kenny/Hangman and The Young Bucks. This show is going to be incredible.

Exalted One

He’s coming. And it’s going to be WONDERFUL.

Grade: A+

I don’t believe I’ve ever given AEW an A+ before, but these last three weeks have all been A+’s. The storytelling has been great, the matches have been majority 4-star with some 5-stars in there, and an overall solid product. The booking boys have started to become booking men since 2020 started, and this PPV could be the show that makes AEW, well, elite.

One More Thing

I met MJF. He is truly better than all of us.
