Winners: Master Wato & El Desperado, by pinfall (gains 2 points; TMDK earns 0)

Two main event wins in a row and that puts the odd couple near the top of the block! Eagles is a bit salty about it, but will he and Ichiban Sweet Boy just have to reload and try again?

Desperado gets the mic this time, and he tells Robbie, “You take care here, no? Okay.” As for Fujita, “You went away two or three months to get some inspiration. Next time, I want you at an even more inspiring level.” Wato then gets too close and Desperado pushes him away. Desperado then tosses the mic to him and bails! Wato asks, “Hey, aren’t we plenty inspirational ourselves? You guys all think so, right?” The fans applaud as much. Wato says they’re the most exciting team here! Eagles throws his icepack at Wato and says Wato didn’t win this. Fans still cheer Wato on as now he’s all alone in the ring.

Wato says, “We got more teamwork in today, right? Just like yesterday, we’ll keep putting things together. And in Osaka, we’ll win the Super Junior Tag League!” Fans applaud and Wato takes a bow. Will the truly most functional dysfunctional team take the trophies? Or is this all just one wrong move away from falling apart?

 

Here are the NEW Super Junior Tag League Standings!

Intergalactic Jet Setters: 3-1, 6 points
Sho & Yoshinobu Kanemaru: 3-1, 6 points
Clark Connors & Dan Moloney: 3-1, 6 points
Master Wato & El Desperado: 3-1, 6 points
Yoh & Musashi: 2-2, 4 points
Ryusuke Taguchi & The DKC: 2-2, 4 points
Catch 2/2: 2-2, 4 points
Bushi & Titan: 1-3, 2 points
Robbie Eagles & Kosei Fujita: 1-3, 2 points
Douki & Taka Michinoku: 0-4, 0 points


My Thoughts:

Another great round for Super Jr. Tag League, and we’ve got a strong group at the top of the block. Jet Setters with the win over Taguchi & DKC makes sense, as they’re still rolling from their big win over Connors & Moloney. And likewise, Connors & Moloney having a win tonight to rebound makes sense. They can’t owe that many teams golden tickets, so they had to win this one. Catch 2/2 also has a strong rebound win because of course Douki & Taka are ending up the dead last team.

Yoh & Musashi VS Sho & Kanemaru was really good for the ongoing grudge, and no one saw Yoh using a “lip lock” to take Sho down. But because House of Torture gonna cheat all day every day, they steal that win and move up towards the top. And great main event from #DespeWato and TMDK. Still wouldn’t be surprised if Desperado & Wato are the winners of this whole thing because of how they’re so dysfunctional and yet are finding ways to make it work, which the fans seem to love.

My Score: 8.8/10

It’s the Revolution Zero Hour!

Join Renee Paquette and RJ City in discussing, analyzing and predicting the night that features Sting’s last match ever!

 

Tony Schiavone and David Crockett are here!

These two reunite in the Greensboro Arena, where so much of Sting’s iconic career took place. David says as we know, tonight is about family. The Young Bucks made this extremely personal when they attacked Sting’s sons, so what was to be a celebration of a great career has become a grudge match. There is purpose and revenge, Sting isn’t leaving until he finishes the job. Great years were spent here, the centerpiece of Jim Crockett Promotions and the NWA. Here on hallowed ground, from 1988 to 2024, Sting finishes his career here, live on PPV! Dial in, because there’ll be nothing else like it!

 

Zero Hour – 12 Man Tag: The Bang Bang Scissor Gang VS Willie Mack, Private Party & Team Triple J w/ Sonjay Dutt & Karen Jarrett!

Jay White & Colten Gunn made it work with Daddy Ass, The Acclaimed made it work with Austin, and we have seen the entire six pack in action and win once before. Will this be another hit for the super group? Or will the mash-up of The Mack, Marq Quen, Isiah Kassidy, Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett & Satnam Singh destroy the dysfunctional half dozen?

“Platinum on the mic, I’ma ’bout to cook this! All these jobbers in the ring, who the hecc booked this? A Black guy, an Indian and Jeff in the mix, I just wanna know: whose fetish is this? You make my job easy when I’m rappin’, you’re like an offensive joke waitin’ to happen! The Bang Scissor- Sh*t!” Caster lost his flow three times in a row! Is #TriplePartyJay winning gonna open the show? Bowens still shouts, “GRRREENSBOROOO~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass!” And he does~!

The teams sort out and Austin starts against Brother Zay. The fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” and Austin circles with Zay. Jarrett coaches Zay up and he ties up with Austin. Austin headlocks, grinds the hold, Sonjay offers fist bumps to the commentary team. Zay slips around to headlock Austin but Austin powers out. Zay ducks ‘n’ dodges and squealing DROPKICKS!

Zay is annoyed, he swings but misses and Austin JABS, JABS, JABS and two-steps to DECK Zay!

The fans fire up while Bowens covers, TWO! Bowens says guns up, and then he brings Quen around. Tag to Colten, they mug Quen and Colten clamps onto an arm. Quen fights up, pulls hair, and he puts Colten on the ropes. The ref counts, Quen lets off, but Lethal HOTSHOTS Colten! Quen DROPKICKS Colten down! Fans boo but Quen tags in Jarrett. They mug Colten, and Double J stomps Colten to ropes. Jarrett runs, pulling the ref’s attention, which allows Karen to CHOKE Colten before the STRADDLE ATTACK! Fans boo more as Jarrett starts up the Fargo Strut, and everyone on his team joins in on the outside!

Jarrett stomps Colten around then tags in Lethal. Jarrett whips Colten to kick low, Lethal hits the SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Lethal soaks up the heat, kicks at Austin, then goes back to Colten. Tag to Mack and the fans finally have reason to cheer. Mack whips and LARIATS Colten down! Mack keeps Colten from BBSG, then tags in Quen. Quen drops knees, and fans actually chant, “Let’s Go, Colten!” Colten endures, fights up, but Quen snapmares him down. Tag to Kassidy for the slingshot SENTON! Zay then taunts BBSG before he stomps away on Colten. Zay clamps on a chinlock but Colten endures.

The fans rally, Colten fights up, and he throws body shots! Colten gets free but Zay CLUBS him! Zay kicks, Colten blocks, but he gets the DRAGON WHIP! Tag to Quen and Private Party coordinate. Quen is the stepstool, Zay runs up, but Colten dodges! Party in Motion hits the rest of the team! Zay & Quen panic, they get Colten’s legs but he BOOTS them away! Hot tag to Bowens! The Five Tool Player rallies on Private Party! ROLLING ELBOW for Quen, ROLLING ELBOW for Zay! Lethal runs in but he gets Rock Paper Scissors SUPERKICK! Bowens ROCKS Quen to run and FAMOUSER BULLDOG!

Satnam CHOPS Bowens, brings him around, and then TOSSES him across the ring! Bowens tumbles, Satnam drags him back over and tags Lethal back in.

Tag to Jarrett and Triple J whips. Bowens reverses but Lethal stops himself, Jarrett RUSSIAN LEG SWEEPS!

Daddy Ass rallies on Mack, Lethal, Private Party, and he even DECKS Satnam!

Billy tells the One in a Billion to “SUCK THIS!” and then he SPLASHES Mack in a corner! Billy brings Mack out, kicks low and tells him “SUCK IT!” But Satnam trips him up! Mack hits a STUNNER, followed by a LETHAL INJECTION! Zay hurries up top to SWANTON BOMB! Quen adds on a 450 SPLASH!! Mack hurries to cover, TWO!! Billy survives and shocks #TriplePartyJay! The BBSG drag them all out and send them into barriers, but then Mack goes up! Mack SIX-STAR FLOPS as Billy moves! White is there, hot tag to King Switch!

Jarrett drags Bowens out and sends him into railing! Satnam storms in and White gets face to chest with the giant! But then Billy has White hold on. Billy is big but still not Satnam big! Satnam shoves them both away, DECKS Bowens, then grabs Caster! Satnam TOSSES Caster, then SHOVES Austin! White CHOP BLOCKS him, but Satnam stays up!? Billy kicks low and White CHOP BLOCKS again, they finally get the giant on his knees!

The fans fire up as White sets Satnam up for a FAMOUSER!! Mack returns to SUPERKICK Billy! White gets Mack again, BLADERUNNER!!! Cover, BBSG wins!!

Winners: The Bang Bang Scissor Gang, by pinfall

#TriplePartyJay tried to use the numbers game, but not even they could stop this super six pack from flexing their guns! The AEW World Trios & ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions stand tall together once again, and White gets the mic. “Yo! Yo! YO!” White is copying Max as he says, “Listen! See, Max? It’s not that hard. Oh yeah, guns up for my Greensboro Gold Members~!” Now, White is always telling the gang about how much he loves Greensboro. It’s one of his favorite cities in the world! The fans appreciate that, and White continues to say that Greensboro has some of the greatest wrestling fans!

The fans again cheer, and White says hey, what better place to have an event like Revolution? And there’s a lot of action tonight! Will Ospreay is here! Who walks out the AEW World Champion? Fans chant “JOE! JOE! JOE!” so that answers that. Oh oh oh oh, who is ready for Sting’s last match, huh? The fans sure are! A very big night, kicking off the biggest way possible with the Bang! Bang! Scissor! Gang! The two best trios, the single best six man team, and the GREATEST faction in the GREATEST wrestling company, AEW! The fans cheer for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” and White says BBSG is led by one of the greatest of all time.

White can remind any of us, that on any given day, at any given moment, just who he is. He’ll remind us why he is the Catalyst of Pro-Wrestling! He’ll remind us to Breathe with the Switchblade! The fans sing, “OH~ Scissor Me, Switchblade~!” White says in ten days time, AEW Dynamite in Boston, maybe he handles some Big Business of his own! Fans like the sound of that. But until then, EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed. And if you ain’t down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP! The Switchblade is taking aim at something, two guesses what title he wants to add to the collection.

 

Backstage interview with Best Friends.

Lexi Nair is with Orange Cassidy, Trent Beretta, Rocky Romero & Chuck Taylor, but also Doc Sampson, because we need a medical update on the International Champion before his match with Roderick Strong tonight. Doc says as we know, Cassidy has been getting beat up the last few months, and that Doc keeps telling Cassidy to tape up that back and ribs. Tonight, it happens or he isn’t being cleared. Then with all that said, how does Cassidy feel going into this? Trent speaks up that Cassidy always fights through it. And just like always, the boys have his back. Cassidy wants to talk to them about that, actually

Tonight, before, during and after, Best Friends need to stay in the back. Cassidy is sick and tired of seeing his friends getting hurt because of him, so he has to do this on his own. Chuck says yeah, he’ll keep the others back and respect Cassidy on this. Hands in, and even Doc and Lexi join in. Freshly Squeezed has support in spirit, but will that not help when The Undisputed Kingdom will stack the deck?

 

We hear from PAC!

The Bastard says, “Here we go again. A tale as old as time. The forgotten bastard! Where have you been, boy? None of your pissin’ business where I’ve been! Well, you tell me. Who said life’s so hard? Huh? Every man has his struggle. Do you think I don’t know the burden of shame? Isolated, blinded, broken. I almost popped me clogs. But I didn’t~! You’ll never get rid of me, Tony Khan! I’m like a cockroach, an indestructible little bastard, always lurking in the underbelly. I will be back very soon, whether you like it or not. And I am going to drag this festering scrotum of a company into a new age! Because I’m alive, ladies and gentlemen! And doesn’t it feel good to be alive?”

Winners: Kris Statlander & Willow Nightingale, by pinfall

Stokely says if you’ll excuse him, and he leaves commentary to celebrate with his team. They got on the same page, got the win, and have humbled the TBS Champion, if only for now. But the question is, who will be moving up to challenge the champ down the line?

 

AEW TNT Championship: Christian Cage w/ The Patriarchy VS Daniel Garcia!

Captain Charisma will deny it up and down, but he did lose this title to the Rated R Superstar at Worlds End, then he bullied Killswitch/Luchasaurus in handing over his anytime-anywhere title match contract to get it back. Will that same insurance policy through emotional abuse come through for him tonight? Or will nothing save him from Red Death?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who is the true Face of TNT!

The bell rings and the fans rally up for Garcia, but Christian stays in a corner. Christian frowns and finally circles with Garcia. They tie up, go around, and are in a deadlock. They go low, then back up, and end up on ropes. The ref counts, neither man lets go and they end up in the ropes. Christian finally lets off and backs away, but the fans still rally for Garcia. Garcia and Christian reset, tie up again, and Christian waistlocks to then trip Garcia and float to a facelock. Garcia endures the grind, moves around and fights to his feet. Garcia wrenches free for an ELBOW BREAKER, then he headlocks.

Christian powers up and out but Garcia runs him over! The fans fire up as Christian flounders away, then boo as he bails out. Christian regroups with The Patriarchy and huddles up. He tells the cameraman to bug off so they can talk strategy. The Patriarchy breaks huddle and Christian makes his way back into the ring. Garcia and Christian circle, feel things out, and tie up. They’re in another deadlock, but Christian uses his height for leverage. Christian puts Garcia in a corner, but Garcia digs his feet in and pushes Christian back! The fans fire up as Garcia puts Christian in another corner! The ref counts, Christian powers Garcia back to center and then headlocks.

Garcia powers up and out but Christian runs Garcia over! Things speed up, and Christian falls! Is that a fake out or did he really tweak an ankle? The ref has Garcia stay back but fans are calling BS, too. And then Christian pokes Garcia in the eye! The ref reprimands and the fans boo because they knew all along. Christian goes to the apron so he can HOTSHOT Garcia down! Fans boo but Mother Shayna applauds and high-fives Papa Christian. Christian storms in, avoids Garcia’s wild punch and throws down fists. Christian stomps Garcia around then soaks up the heat. Christian mocks Greensboro like he can’t hear them, then he stalks Garcia to a corner.

Garcia fires haymakers in return, but Christian knees low! Christian turns Garcia for a NECKBREAKER! Cover, ONE!! Garcia toughs it out but Christian CHOKES him on ropes! Garcia punches at the knee but Christian lets off at 4. The fans boo but The Patriarchy applauds. Christian stands Garcia up to snapmare and then ELBOW him down! Christian mocks the Garcia dance, then just flexes. The fans boo more but Christian CLAWS at Garcia’s face! The ref counts, Christian lets off, then chinlocks and digs his knee into Garcia’s back. The fans rally, Garcia fights up and he throws body shots! Garcia fires off from all sides in the corner!

The fans fire up, Garcia climbs up, but Christian SHOVES Garcia down to the floor! Then Christian SUPER CROSSBODIES! Credit to Christian for going high risk, and both men are down on the outside. The ring count climbs, but Nick & Killswitchasaurus are there to check on Christian. Christian stands at 5 of 10 but Garcia follows. Christian brings Garcia around at 7 and puts him in at 8.

AEW Continental Triple Crown Championship: Eddie Kingston VS Bryan Danielson!

Speaking of thrones, The Mad King still holds the three belts that define this modern American Triple Crown. But even more than these titles, he is looking to win Bryan’s respect. Will Eddie slay the American Dragon and make him shake his hand? Or will Bryan make his last year as a wrestler a golden one?

Renee Paquette is at gorilla with Eddie, saying tonight is all about respect, and perhaps the lack thereof from Bryan, who crowned Eddie “The King of the Bums.” Eddie is the first Continental Crown Champion, and he dedicates tonight’s match to Jun Akiyama. The music hits and Eddie heads out. The introductions are made, the three belts are raised, and we see who leaves Greensboro holding them all!

The fans again give this a standing ovation because The Mad King keeps his crown! Eddie stands to bow in respect to Greensboro, but the real moment of truth is: Will Bryan show respect to Eddie? Bryan slowly sits back up, perhaps coming to terms with reality. Eddie waits, and Bryan hears the fans chant, “Shake His Hand! Shake His Hand!” Bryan looks down at himself, then up at Eddie.
