AEW Revolution 2022 Final Results, Review, And Updates


On the evening of March 6, AEW held its first PPV of the year, Revolution. The very long wrestling event featured numerous title matches and lots of blooded spilled on the mat during CM Punk vs. MJF in the dog collar match. The evening concluded with the AEW Championship match between Adam Page and Adam Cole in a fantastic bout.

Every AEW championship was defended over the course of the evening. Outside of the traditional singles matches, there was a dog collar match–which has a long history of brutality–and a ladder match–which has a long history of people jumping off of a ladder. Viewers at the show live in Orlando, Florida certainly go their money’s worth.

How to watch:

Leyla Hirsch vs. Kris Statlander

Hirsch wins by pin.

Matt: Hi. I’m alone for this event as Chris E. Hayner is at Revolution, that lucky son of a gun. Additionally, I’m really sick, but the show must go on. The opening of the match had a few rough spots, including Hirsch missing a few spots. Storywise, this had a pretty fantastic ending with Hirsch maintaining her dominance by hitting Statlander with a turnbuckle, which is something I don’t think we’ve seen in quite some time. Not a huge opener to the show, but fun nonetheless.

Hook vs. QT Marshall

Hook wins by submission.

Matt: Why is QT Marshall so over me? He’s literally the “default wrestler” in any wrestling game. Maybe the guy whose gimmick is “mildly heel guy” is somehow way up my alley? Hook is a guy with hair that dresses like Sagat from Street Fighter and beats people up. He feels like Muay Thai Darby Allin. I was getting a bit annoyed hearing the commentating team constantly saying Hook is the “cold-hearted, handsome devil” over and over. I got it. He looks very cool. Anyway, enough complaining. This is all about building Hook as a monster, and the match does so very well. It was quite a bit of fun to watch Marshall get taken to task here.

House of Black vs. Dark Penta, Pac, and Erick Redbeard

House of Black wins by pin.

Matt: There’s nothing more exciting in wrestling than Penta getting the hot tag and putting on a damn showcase, and in this case, it wrapped up with a destroyer. I was loving the battles between Redbeard and King here–a classic giant vs. giant battle. There was one very weird moment where Matthews was setting up some sort of move on Penta, Penta hit the mat, and Excalibur yelled “the curbstomp!” Is that what happened? This match was a blast though, and surely got a lot of people pumped for the main card.

Chris Jericho vs. eddie kingston

Kingston wins by submission.

Matt: This match opened up with what looked like a murder, as Kingston suplexed Jericho onto his head. Later, Jericho suplexed Kingston on his head. I worry about their brain health. This is a brutal match, and it’s just a singles competition. This match is a straight-up brawl. It’s savage. If you’re watching this and not emotionally invested, you don’t like wrestling. Kingston needed this win to rise up in the ranks. This bout was as good as I thought it would be. Real solid way to kick off the main card.

Jurassic Express (c) vs. reDRagon vs. The Young Bucks

(AEW World Tag Team Championship)

Jurassic Express wins by pin.

Matt: AEW does tag team wrestling exceptionally well, and this is a prime example of it. The action never stops, and we have three groups that actually work like tag teams–not just people paired together. I got the outcome I wanted, and the match was a blast to watch. There were a few too many false finishes towards the end, but overall, that was a lot of fun.

Keith Lee vs. Wardlow vs. Powerhouse Hobbs vs. Ricky Stark vs. Orange Cassidy vs. Christian Cage

Wardlow grabs the brass ring.

Matt: There’s a lot of Grade A, prime beef in this match for a beefy-slap down. That being said, Orange Cassidy is a national treasure and was the best part of this bout. I only hope his groin area is ok after he took a ladder step to it. According to Hayner, Cassidy took a nasty bump after the Keith Lee throw and was walked backstage by doctors. Regardless, this was a fantastic ladder match, which featured plenty of moments I had never seen before, and we got to see one beefy boy grab that brass ring.

Jade Cargill (c) vs. Tay Conti

(AEW TBS Championship)

Cargill wins by pin.

Matt: Tay had rad warpaint on. Jade was dressed like Jade from Mortal Kombat. 40 stars. Jade had a fantastic frogsplash as well. She continues to pull out some really cool maneuvers during her matches. And while Jade continues to remain undefeated in AEW, this was n’t her best match. It was middle of the road. And it was surprising that Conti and Jade didn’t put on a little bit more of a show. Anyway, Jade winning and continuing her dominance is the right move, and it’s great to see her retain her.

CM Punk vs. MJF

CM Punk wins by pin.

Matt: Alright, I completely nerded out when Punk came to the ring to “Miseria Cantera” by AFI. He also wore an outfit much like his one of his in Ring of Honor. He’s paying homage to his past from him in ROH, and it was wonderful. Then the match happened and Punk bled everywhere. How much blood? Well, you’ve seen the movie Carrie, right? It was a lot. If you know me, violence like this in wrestling is not my cup of tea. However, it’s hard to ignore the fact this was a brilliantly plotted bout between them. And as the match went on, we got the typical Wardlow spot, where MJF needed his help from him. However, Wardlow decided to dissolve that relationship. This was a brutal but really enjoyable match.

Dr. Britt Baker, DMD (c) vs. Thunder Pink

(AEW Women’s World Championship)

Baker wins by pin.

Matt: Due to issues with the B/R app, I couldn’t watch some of the matches. It wouldn’t be incredibly fair to rate the whole match since I missed some of it.

Bryan Danielson vs. jon moxley

Moxley wins by pin.

Still Mat: I am tired. I am still very sick. There are still three matches left. It’s been about four hours at this point, and personally, I’m not particularly in the mood for a strong style, Japanese-paced match. I know I’m not the only person feeling fatigue, as the audience is real wiped at this point. This was a fantastic match, a war between two well-established wrestlers, but the icing on the cake was William Regal showing up. Sure, the ending to the match was super weird, but we got Regal.

Andrade El Idolo, Matt Hardy, and Isiah Kassidy vs. Sammy Guevara, Sting, and Darby Allin

Allin pins Hardy.

Matt: Can a spotfest get me back into the action? The match opened with a short film where Darby Allin crashed a car then did a coffin drop onto a priest. Then there was a fire. I went to film school, so I know bad short films when I see them–because I made a ton. This was bad. This match was utter chaos, in a bad way. What does the cameraman focus on? I ask this because there are three separate areas with action happening at the same time. It got worse when The Butcher and The Blade were setting up tables in a corridor near Sting. Hardy hit Sting with a low blow. They went into the crowd. What is happening here? Come on. There were some very cool spots during the match, especially with Sammy’s Spanish Fly, but this was frustrating. Production was stretched too much here to follow everyone, and it felt like a mess. It was filler to the main event, and that’s all.

“Hangman” Adam Page (c) vs. Adam Cole

(AEW World Championship)

Page wins by pin.

Matt: We’re finally here, bay-bay. There are lots of things to talk about, but Cole superkicking Page while he was doing a moonsault was amazing. There were lots of great spots like this, like Cole giving Page the Panama Sunrise on the outside of the ring. However, the pacing was dead on. It was emotional and the crowd was invested–something that didn’t seem possible considering how much wrestling we’ve all been treated to. Obviously, Cole’s lackey’s reDRagon–because they’re doctors, right?–were at ringside, but Page still has friends in the Dark Order, so it was nice to see someone sticking up for the AEW Champion. All-in-all, Page retained, and that makes sense. Page is a great champion, and he needed to retain. This was a great way to close out the PPV, but man, this show needed to be shorter.
