Japanese Clash for the Women’s World Title

The dust has finally settled on the AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator Tournament. Ryo Mizunami was the last woman standing, earning a shot at Hikaru Shida’s AEW Women’s World Championship. Mizunami outlasted the likes of Maki Itoh, Aja KongYuka Sakazaki, and last but not least, Nyla Rose. Shida has been patiently waiting for the woman that will challenge her and now she’s gearing up for the battle of her career. These two talented women will square off one on one and may the very best come out on top. Hikaru is the longest-reigning AEW Women’s World Champion in its short history. However, Mizunami is looking to make history as the woman who will end this record-breaking run.

Hikaru Shida is one of the most dominant women in professional wrestling right now, but Ryo Mizunami might have all the momentum in the world. There is a big possibility that, at the end of that match, fans recognize a new Women’s World Champion at AEW Revolution.

World Tag Team War

Chris Jericho MJF cash in on their Beach Break victory as they challenge The Young Bucks for the AEW World Tag Team Championship. Jericho & MJF would up the ante by attacking the Bucks’ father, leaving him a bloody mess. Matt JacksonNick Jackson will undoubtedly not take this lying down. The pair made it beyond personal against the champions by maliciously using a family member to make a point.

This isn’t just for the championships anymore; it’s about defending their family’s honor and respect. The Crossroads go-home show saw the Bucks fight back not only with their words but a few superkicks as well. Santana & Ortiz were right in the crosshairs of the brothers as they both went through a table respectively. The mind games of The Inner Circle might just cost them. The Young Bucks will not only exact their revenge on MJF & Jericho but are more than likely to retain their gold once again.

Barbed Wire Brutality at AEW Revolution

Kenny Omega raised the stakes to its highest when he proposed Jon Moxley meet him in an Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch with the AEW World Title on the line. To Moxley’s credit, he did not even show the slightest bit of hesitation and accepted. Moxley just wants his title back and would go through hell and high water to get it. Mox was riding the highest of highs before Omega and Don Callis stole the AEW World Championship from him. From that day on, Moxley has been hellbent on teaching Omega a lesson, reclaiming what he feels is rightfully his.

Kenny Omega would tell anybody with ears that he is the best in the world. Depending on who you ask, he just might be right. After winning AEW’s richest price back in December, Omega has been nothing short of arrogant but undeniably dominant. He would even go to IMPACT Wrestling and prove to everyone that no matter where you find him, you will find him victorious.

Jon Moxley’s path would parallel Omega’s, as he would also go to NJPW STRONG and successfully defend his IWGP United States Championship against KENTA. This was, for a lack of better terms, a physical contest. These two won’t just be duking it out in a standard wrestling match; their past unsanctioned matches will pale in comparison to this stipulation. An Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch will hopefully mark the end of this long-running blood feud. If this doesn’t put an exclamation point on this already personal and violent feud, what will? These men are no strangers to this type of brutality, and if it takes mutilating each other to end one another, then so be it.

Look for Moxley to be in his element come AEW Revolution. Mox made a name for himself in these types of matches as his CZW resume would tell you. Moxley has competed in the promotion’s Tournament of Death, so he knows exactly what he is in for. Let’s just hope fans know what they are in for.
