The Revolution card is absolutely stacked, but before we get there, we still have one more Dynamite before we get to the PPV. So far, we’ve only had two announced matches, and they are the second of the tag team Battle Royale, and we’re also a getting a huge 6-man tag match that’ll have be featured around the AEW title match at Revolution.
Hangman Page (C) & Dark Order vs Adam Cole and reDRagon
It’s nice to finally see Hangman Page in a real story again, and I’ve really enjoyed the story we’ve been getting so far. Hangman is a great character, and that character is best when it’s involved with the Elite. Last week’s Dynamite had Hangman get his revenge on reDRagon and beat them both up, while the Young Bucks looked on. Hangman then cut a promo on Adam Cole and looked very good. This is the potential that Hangman has, and it’s great to see him back at this very high level.
With Cole and reDRagon sneak attacking Hangman two weeks ago, and Hangman getting even with the help of John Silver last week, this 6-man tag match just makes sense. Seeing how both Adam Cole and reDRagon are involved in title matches at Revolution, you wouldn’t want anyone on that team to take a pin, so I think it’ll be either John Silver or Alex Reynolds taking the pin here.
I think we’re headed to a rematch of this match down the line, but instead of the Dark Order, I think we’ll have the Young Bucks with Hangman once again.
Casino Tag Team Battle Royale
In the first of the two Battle Royale’s, we saw the team of reDRagon come out victorious when Kyle O’Reilly faked an arm injury to distract Matt Jackson, and then eliminated the him. It was step one in my fantasy booking, that we’ll see Luchasaurus & Jungle Boy vs reDRagon vs the Young Bucks for the tag team titles at Revolution. We’ll see if the Bucks can prove me right, and win the second Battle Royale on this episode of Dynamite.
As of writing this, AEW haven’t posted a graphic for the announced teams that will be participating in the Casino Battle Royale, but expect a lot of teams we saw last week, to be in this match. Another thing to take note of here, is that the Casino Battle Royale is a “Royal Rumble” style match, meaning that there could be a surprise or two for teams that will be competing. It would also explain why we haven’t gotten a graphic for the match like we did last week.
As for my prediction, it’s staying the same. We had reDRagon win last week, so I think we’ll be getting the Young Bucks winning here. This might be pretty obvious to some people, but the obvious story is sometimes the right story.
The last bit of announced segments we have for this show as of now, is Tony Khan is promising a huge announcement that will be on the same level as “the First Dance” which was the return of CM Punk. TK must not be fooling around…
All this and so much more can be seen on TBS (TSN in Canada) every Wednesday night at 8PM EST.
