AEW Revolution 2021 Predictions
By: Justin Hopkins
So, I am kind of surprised it took this long to do a proper prediction for AEW. If push come to shove, may be a bigger fan of AEW than WWE at times and have just dragged my feet on doing one of these, but that changes now, with Revolution this weekend, and some massive matches set and a huge signing to be announced. Lets dive in and see if I can try and predict what may go down at Revolution.
Buy-In Pre Show Tag Team Match – Doctor Britt Baker and Rebel vs Riho and Thunder Rosa
It is kind of a surprise to see this match on a Pre-Show, but it has a feel of must need to see, which is exciting for a Pre-Show. Rosa and Britt in a pretty lengthy feud. That has only seen one match between them that ended with Britt cheating her way to get the win over her. There is some question about whether or not Rebel will even be involved in the match due to injury and Britt may be picking a new partner, but either way, I am picking Rosa and Riho for the win to set up a rubber match between Rosa and Britt down the road.
Winner – Riho and Thunder Rosa
Casino Tag Team Battle Royal Winner gets a Tag Team Title Match – PAC and Rey Fenix vs Bear Country vs The Varsity Blondes vs Alan Angels and 10 vs Stu Grayson and Evil Uno vs John Silver and Alex Reynolds vs Cezar Bononi and Peter Avalon vs Pride and Powerful vs Mike and Matt Sydal vs The Butcher and The Blade vs SCU vs Private Party vs The Gunn Club vs Natural Nightmares Dustin Rhodes and QT Marshall vs Jungle Express
So, same may think that they do too many Battle Royals, but I am not there yet. I love a good Battle Royal and there are so many teams that I want to win this. Would be great to see The Dark Order get a title match. Fenix and PAC are fantastic and with a pick I am going to make later, they could easily start the wheels going on Death Triangle getting all the gold, but I think it is going to Pride and Powerful which will set the stage for the separation of Inner Circle.
Winner – Pride and Powerful
AEW Tag Team Championship – Chris Jericho and MJF vs The Young Bucks ( Champions)
This should be a fun and heated match-up and I am sensing a title change. Think the stage is being set for a title change to set up the split of The Inner Circle. MJF and Jericho getting the belt to transition to Proud and Powerful. While the Young Bucks go on to start toward an Impact Tag Team Title Match against Gallows and Anderson. Although wouldn’t be to broken up if the Young Bucks keep the belts for a bit longer.
Winners and New Tag Team Champions – Chris Jericho and MJF
Face Of The Revolution Ladder Match – Cody Rhodes vs Scorpio Sky vs Penta El Zero Miedo vs Lance Archer vs Max Caster vs TBA
I have nearly convinced myself that this could be Lance Archer. He has been on a massive push as of late and been closing the show a lot as of late. The match of Archer vs Darby would be fantastic that could go either way. You got Scorpio Sky playing a little more of a heel this past week though and that would be great to see some fresh blood getting the win. Max Caster has a feel of a genuine underdog feel here and when his rap on everyone should be epic, and Cody could always win this and we didn’t even talk about the mystery entry and I have no clue who that could be, but as far as my pick goes, it doesn’t really matter, because I am going with Penta. He is amazing and I am more then ready for him to get the win here, beat Darby and take the belt to Death Triangle.
Winner – Penta El Zero Miedo
Miro and Kip Sabian vs Orange Cassidy and Chuck Taylor
I have been enjoying this feud in general and will be a nice break from all the carnage that is on this show. I believe that Orange and Chuck are going to get the win over Kip making a mistake which will send Miro over the edge and destroy Kip to start his solo run.
Winners – Orange Cassidy and Chuck Taylor
AEW Women’s Championship Match – Ryo Mizunami vs Hikaru Shida (Champion)
Coming off the wildly fun and surprising Women’s Tournament. Which I loved nearly every minute of it. Really getting to see some more of their women’s wrestlers going out their and knocking it out of the park. While Ryo was not my picking going in (That would be Leyla Hirsch. I think she is awesome and want to see her just tie up everyone into knots.) Ryo is going to be my pick in this match. Can have really open up to some fresher feuds and breath some new life back into the Women’s Division and hope That AEW keeps pushing them even more following.
Winner and new Women’s Champion – Ryo Mizunami
Hangman Adam Page vs Matt Hardy
This has been a fun rivalry and love the fact they have money riding on the match. Nice change of pace to add to this rivalry. Adds a bit of flair that we don’t see anymore. Think Page is going to win and get justice for the attacks on The Dark Order and BTE after this. See him and The Dark Order, Partying with Matt’s money is going to be wild.
Winner – Hangman Adam Page
Street Fight Brian Cage and Ricky Starks vs Darby Allen and Sting
I am happy that Sting is going to be able to get a match that he is proud of. After his less than stellar WWE run, but I am going to be glad when this is over. It’s been a bit overdone, but this could be great for everyone involved, especially Darby and that is what matters. Not a chance Sting loses.
Winners- Darby Allen and Sting
AEW Championship Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch – Jon Moxley vs Kenny Omega (Champion)
I don’t even know what to say about this match. Barbed wire ropes, that are armed with explosive. Platforms around three sides with more barbed wire and explosives. A thirty minute countdown and at the end of the countdown, all the explosives detonate. This feud has been a long time brewing and with unsanctioned match already done. Can see why they would want to elevate the stakes, but wow did they ever do that. It is an insane match to bring back into the fold and may be too much but I think they can pull this off. It’s Omega and Mox. Two insane guys who want to go out there and put on the best performance that they can and even with this stipulation, think they can go out there and make it work. Winner will be Omega so Mox can go be a Dad.
Winner and still champion – Kenny Omega
As always, I hope you enjoyed and….
