AEW Revolution Predictions Showdown

Tomorrow night sees AEW‘s newest PPV, AEW Revolution, hit our screens and you know what that means.

That’s right, boys and girls, it’s time for a brand new Predictions Showdown.

As the table currently stands, it doesn’t make pretty reading for your friendly neighborhood wrestling writer, languishing as he is in last place, but fear not faithful readers, that will not deter him and he swears to rise like Lazarus from the dead to make sure that the Power Mad Grevas will not stay long atop the tree.

But if he should fall, the brave warrior that he is (and also because he couldn’t predict the outcome of a one-horse race), then there is always The Flack and The Ninja O’Donnell to challenge the leader of our Wrestling Cabal for the Iron Throne.

And now I’m going to stop talking like that as I feel I may have been watching far too much Game of Thrones in my spare time.

Anyway, you should know by now how this pans out, we make our predictions and wait to see which one of us emerges triumphant, so with that in, shall we?

Dark Order vs. SCU

Tag-Team Match (Buy-In): Dark Order vs. SCU

The Flack: Will it be Daniels? Lance Archer? Brodie Lee? DELETE! DELETE! DELETE? I don’t know but I do expect to see The Exalted One to be revealed at Revolution. Anything less will make Dark Order sections on Dynamite painful. For that, if nothing else, I give the Order the win here
Winner: Dark Order

Andrew Grevas: The Dark Order are a team AEW seems to be invested in so a win here makes sense.
Winner: Dark Order

Neil Gray: Think this one pretty much writes itself. The Dark Order defeats SCU in a pretty damn good match after Daniels turns on his friends to reveal that AEW has decided to see The Ministry of Darkness storyline through to its natural conclusion. Or, y’know, it’s Matt Hardy.
Winner: Dark Order

Conor O’Donnell: Never been an SCU fan. I think the Dark Order needs the victory more.
Winner: Dark Order

"The Bastard" PAC vs. Orange Cassidy - AEW Revolution title card

“The Bastard” PAC vs. Orange Cassidy

The Flack: Don’t get me wrong; I like Orange Cassidy. I do! Do I want to see someone like PAC, who has the potential to be the company’s top heel when Jericho calls it a day, go from demonstrating such wonderful wrestling as he did in his Iron Man match with Kenny, only to drop to near the bottom of the card with Cassidy in less than a week? No, I don’t. Should be entertaining, but still. PAC will pulverize Cassidy. Get your glasses ready – he’s getting freshly squeezed alright!
Winner: “The Bastard” PAC

Andrew Grevas: PAC, no explanation needed.
Winner: “The Bastard” PAC

Neil Gray: Now, logically I should go for “The Bastard” here, but this is Orange Cassidy’s first match within AEW and as he’s such a hot commodity within the company and a firm fan favorite, then I can’t for the life of me see him not going over. God knows how, mind you, but it’s gonna be fun finding out.
Winner: Orange Cassidy

Conor O’Donnell: Winner: “The Bastard” PAC

Darby Allin vs. Sammy Guevara - AEW Revolution title card

Darby Allin vs. Sammy Guevara

The Flack: Both men could do with the victory, but I think AEW will strike where the iron is hot, and that’s with Darby. I’d argue Darby’s booking has been quite inconsistent, but he, along with maybe Jungle Boy, currently has the best shots of being built into major stars. He needs a win here to solidify this.
Winner: Darby Allin

Andrew Grevas: Going Sammy here as the company continues to establish him as a guy on the rise.
Winner: Sammy Guevara

Neil Gray: Considering that Guevara and his Inner Circle buddies crushed Allin’s larynx with a skateboard a couple of weeks ago, I fully expect Darby to get the win here. Otherwise, AEW is saying that you can be a douche-bag and not have to suffer any consequences and what kind of message is that to send to the children?
Winner: Darby Allin

Conor O’Donnell: Winner: Darby Allin

Dustin Rhodes vs. Jake Hager

Dustin Rhodes vs. Jake Hager

The Flack: At long last, Mr. Hager’s first AEW match. And for that reason, I think he will be booked strongly to win. Dustin can absorb the loss, he doesn’t need the win at this stage. ‘Smiling’ Jack Hager does. Expect a hard-hitting slugfest here.
Winner: Jake Hager

Andrew Grevas: Dustin has a new lease on life here in AEW. Expecting a hard-hitting fun match here where Dustin makes Hager look like a million bucks. Hager has monster potential and a win here goes a long way in establishing that.
Winner: Jake Hager

Neil Gray: Hager’s another one making his in-ring debut for AEW, no way in hell he doesn’t get the 1-2-3, but Dustin Rhodes will make him look like a Megastar in putting him over.
Winner: Jake Hager

Conor O’Donnell: Winner: Jake Hager

MJF vs. Cody

MJF vs. Cody

The Flack: If The Bucks do turn and Mox doesn’t take the title, then AEW will need to give the fans something to go home happy with and the beloved Cody meting out revenge on the hated Maxwell would be just that. There’s every reason to believe MJF would win, to keep the feud going, but at least one major face has got to take a victory here and my money’s on Cody.
Winner: Cody

Andrew Grevas: This one should be fun. No way MFJ doesn’t leave victorious though. These guys are just getting started.
Winner: MJF

Neil Gray: Even though it pains me to disagree with my erstwhile Overlord, I’m gonna anyway. This feud between MJF and Cody has been coming to a head ever since MJF weaseled his way onto The Elite all those moons ago and I fully expect Cody to kick his ass from here to Albuquerque.
Winner: Cody

Conor O’Donnell: I think this is the hardest pick. I could see the result either way. It’s hard seeing Cody losing after being whipped 10 times but I could see Cody wanting to put MJF over further. Will AEW give the fans what they want here though?
Winner: Cody

The Young Bucks vs. Hangman Page And Kenny Omega

AEW Tag-Team Championship: The Young Bucks vs. Hangman Page And Kenny Omega

The Flack: This is the match that interests me the most, and off the back of the story they’ve been building there are plenty of things that could happen. I think Page will either turn on Kenny and cost them the belts, or Kenny will turn heel on Page and The Elite will kick the shit out of him. Will I be right? I’m excited to find out, but I do believe The Bucks will take the titles either way.
Winner: The Young Bucks

Andrew Grevas: I’ve argued since Day 1 that the Bucks need the belts, even if the company has disagreed. I might be letting personal opinion get in the way here, but I’m calling title change and a nice reign for the Bucks to establish the titles.
Winner: The Young Bucks

Neil Gray: I have no f*cking idea. I think this comes down to whichever team they’re going to turn heel after the match, as the faces will then go on to battle the Dark Order at some point, but considering I called the Bucks to stab their friends in the back in my AEW Dynamite review, I’m gonna stick by it.
Winner: Hangman Page And Kenny Omega

Conor O’Donnell: This seems like a slam dunk pick with the way Hangman has been booked. AEW has gone with the simple obvious booking in the past, so I’m hoping they continue.
Winner: The Young Bucks

Kris Statlander vs. Nyla Rose

AEW Women’s Championship: Kris Statlander vs. Nyla Rose

The Flack: I’m not a big fan of either wrestler to be honest (to be clear: nothing to do with Nyla’s gender, which is none of our business anyway!) They’ll push Nyla strong as a beast, defending the title regularly, to try and compensate for Riho. I’d rather have Riho though. Nyla for the win here.
Winner: Nyla Rose

Andrew Grevas: Way too soon to take the title off Rose.
Winner: Nyla Rose

Neil Gray: Rose. Don’t ask stupid questions
Winner: Nyla Rose

Conor O’Donnell: I think she needs the win more than Statlander at this point. Rose recently won the title over Riho so I think we’ll stay put.
Winner: Nyla Rose

Jon Moxley vs. Chris Jericho

AEW World Championship: Jon Moxley vs. Chris Jericho

The Flack: This should be a great match. Mox is over like crazy at the moment, but I don’t think he’ll take the Big One here. There’s still a lot more mileage to be had from Le Champion being…well, Le Champion a bit longer, and when Mox does win the belt, which he will eventually in a rematch, it’ll mean even more. Expect outside interference to rear its head in this one.
Winner: Chris Jericho

Andrew Grevas: While Mox should be the one to eventually dethrone Jericho, it won’t be here. Challenger needs to chase the champ a little longer. Do I get extra credit for predicting a Dusty finish? (No, you don’t, bugger off- Neil)
Winner: Chris Jericho

Neil Gray: After everything that Moxley has been through, the near loss of an eye, the continual beatdowns, if AEW doesn’t pull the trigger on him here then they’re drifting into WWE territory, and ain’t no-body got time for that. Except Jericho to win via DQ now I’ve said all that.
Winner: Jon Moxley

Conor O’Donnell: I just don’t see the Jericho reign ending right now. AEW will ride this out until Double or Nothing.
Winner: Chris Jericho

Cody Rhodes

Final Thoughts

If I wasn’t looking forward to AEW Revolution enough, the horrible shite that happened at WWE Super Blood Money the other night has made me look at it as the perfect mental floss to clear my mind.

Seriously, I don’t care if I win or not, I just want to see some decent wrazzlin’ with some sensible outcomes.

Looking at the way the table currently stands some of you might think that’s because I don’t stand a hope in hell;

Andrew Grevas: 11 Points

Conor O’Donnell: 9 Points

Christopher Flackett: 9 Points

Neil Gray: 6 Points

And you might be right.

But at the end of the day as long as AEW Revolution doesn’t bury anyone in the way that Goldberg buried The Fiend, then color me happy.
