AEW Revolution Sees Huge Title Changes
On a night of incredible, jaw-dropping, and even bloody action at AEW Revolution, several stars of the company are showcasing new gold after some title changes on the show.
Five championships were on the line in San Francisco with MJF defending his AEW World Championship in the main event against Bryan Danielson in a sixty-minute Iron Man match. The spectacular contest was tied at three falls each when the time expired much to the annoyance of the crowd.
Tony Khan followed the precedent set by Gorilla Monsoon at WrestleMania 12 and ordered some Sudden Death overtime with the next fall being the final one. MJF had been receiving oxygen after the original end of the bout and used one of the canisters at ringside to nail Danielson before locking the challenger in his own LeBell Lock. To the shock of everyone, The American Dragon tapped out to his own move giving MJF a huge win that we will no doubt hear about time and time again.
It was a mixed night for both AEW Women’s Champion Jamie Hayter and Tag Team Champions The Gunns with both retaining their gold but being taken out after their matches. Hayter was attacked by Ruby Soho who confirmed her allegiance to Saraya and Toni Storm while The Gunns were left fearing the revelation as they were pounced on by the returning FTR.
It was not such a good night for Trios Champions The Elite who may now find themselves at a crossroads after losing their gold to The House of Black. Wardlow got his revenge on Samoa Joe as he defeated The King of Television for the TNT Championship setting up a blockbuster match with Face of the Revolution ladder match winner Powerhouse Hobbs in the process.
