AEW Revolution 2022 took place on 6th March 2022 and as always AEW over-delivered at their first pay-per-view of the year. At this year’s event, we got to see a ladder match and a dog collar match along with two women’s matches on the main card and the culmination/continuation of a number of storylines.
The Buy-In as always over-delivered with a hard-hitting grudge match between Kris Statlander and Legit Leyla Hirsh.
Kenny Omega’s music hits making the whole crowd and even myself get excited. But it wasn’t Omega, it is his advisor Don Callis, who cuts a promo in the ring about how the fans have sucked the life out of his friend. This is a promo that needs to be watched and is available for free via YouTube and Fite.TV. We all know that Callis litters his promos with hints and teases and this one is no different.
QT Marshall faces off against the sensation HOOK in the culmination of a feud that started after his in-ring debut. This is the longest match that HOOK has had, and it is his best to date. QT Marshall is lowkey one of the best wrestlers on the roster and seems to be the first boss you need to defeat on your way to stardom, and HOOK is well on his way there.
The last match on the Buy-In is the House of Black going against PAC and Penta of Death Triangle and Erik Redbeard. This feud has been multi-layered with many different moving parts, this could be one of AEW’s crowning achievements with the combination of mysticism and its real-world consequences. This feud isn’t gimmicky at all it feels gritty and real, and I can’t wait for the next chapter.
