AEW Revolution 2023 predictions, card, start time, location


Last year, Revolution was one of the best shows of 2022, with great matches up and down the card and plenty of surprises.

So this year’s edition has a lot to live up to with the least buzz surrounding any AEW pay-per-view ever.

Sometimes it’s the shows that are scary good and Tony Khan’s company definitely needs to rebuild some momentum given how hot WWE is at WrestleMania.

AEW always seems to overdeliver at venues like this, so let’s see if that happens again at the Chase Center in San Francisco.

With five championships on the line, The Post’s Joseph Stazewski predicts how it will all go down at the Revolution on Sunday (8 p.m., Bleacher Report).

‘Jungle Boy’ Jack Perry over Christian Cage

It feels fitting that this story would culminate in a final burial match as it feels like AEW is trying to move Jungle Boy away from the cartoonish Tarzan-like character he started out with.

Whether it is styled Buried Alive in the arena or as a cinematic match remains to be seen.

There’s a little bit more of an edge to him now and beating a legend like Christian in this type of match should only add to that as he tries to channel some of this daddy Luke Perry’s bad boy cool.

How this will differ from the Hangman-Moxley Texas Death Match will be the question.

Cage’s injury extended this feud by several months, and it needs to end here – and it will – so the Jungle Boy can start working his way into a potential main event or TNT title position.

Ricky Starks over Chris Jericho

I was worried about AEW potentially wanting to escalate this feud, but the Jericho Appreciation Society – who has been banned from ringside in it – taking out Starks on Dynamite this week seems like a babyface. Eventually the group will get better.

Unless they want to do something between the two with a stipulation down the road, Jericho winning doesn’t really help anyone here since Starks is a rising star in the company.

‘Hangman’ Adam Page over John Moxley in a Texas Death Match

Moxley won AEW against Paige on Dynamite in October. Two of the three singles matches have been won between the Blackpool Combat Club leader who successfully defended the world championship.

Paige had to be eliminated by referee stoppage after suffering an injury.

Moxley, who won a pinfall with a counter in the most recent meeting, hasn’t had much of a win in this feud.

John Moxley and ‘Hangman’ Adam Page will have a Texas Death Match at Revolution.

They have felt rather uneasy.

Although this would be the type of match for Moxley to get a definitive win, that doesn’t really serve AEW well with the company riding a heel champion in Paige and MJF as babyfaces.

All of this makes Moxley and Blackpool feel ready to turn Combat Club heel, give the Dark Order some meaningful TV time and set the page for a final event with MJF as their history at AEW’s first pay-per-view. goes back to .

Wardlow over Samoa Joe (c) to win the TNT Championship

It felt like all of Wardlow’s momentum was gone, shortly before Joe defeated him in spectacular fashion for the TNT Championship at the “New Year’s Smash” in December.

He hasn’t wrestled on AEW TV since and it feels like the perfect time to rebuild his star and put the belt on him for a tailor-made feud with former boss MJF later this year.

The only way Joe can win is if he’s going to drop the belt to Will Hobbs, the Face of the Revolution ladder match winner on Dynamite next week.

Joe is also the Ring of Honor Television Champion and with a TV re-filming company, Tony Khan may want to take the veteran there more specifically.

Guns (c.), Jay Lethal & Jeff Jarrett & Danhausen & Orange Cassidy credited for winning AEW World Tag Team Championship

These teams could prove me wrong, but man does this feel like a far cry from the AEW tag team division we once knew.

The fan-favorite feels the only way to save it is by winning back their belt.

I can see Danhausen getting a pin as a way to retain Gunns or put the belts on Jarrett and Lethal, but does any of that sound appealing?

The House of Black attacked the Elite at “AEW Dynamite”.

The Elite (c) over House of Black to retain the AEW World Trios Championships

A.E.W. didn’t wait months for Kenny Omega to get healthy to rejoin the Young Bucks and then put the Triple Championships back on The Elite after their suspensions to make them right.

The program is in its infancy with the House of Black — their only interaction was in vignettes and the lights going out during The Elite’s matches, until they finally attacked the champions and this week on Dynamite. Took the ballot.

These six certainly have the potential to steal the show, but Malakai Black, Buddy Matthews and Brodie King won’t walk away with the gold.

Jamie Hayter (c) defeats Saraya and Ruby Soho to retain the AEW Women’s World Championship

While I can see Saraya winning with the help of Toni Storm so that the two babyfaces have to chase her around for most of the year, this is just the beginning of the storyline and Hater’s reign.

The champion is also having some great matches on TV and Saraya can only wrestle a limited number of matches as she eases her way back from a serious neck injury that forced her to retire.

AEW Women’s Champion Jamie Hayter.

However, something will happen that will cause Soho to finally choose a side between Hater and Britt Baker and Saraya and Storm.

I guess she ends up with the heel because of her WWE ties and desire to be champion.

MJF (c) defeated Bryan Danielson in a 60 minute Iron Man match to retain the AEW World Championship

MJF beating Bryan Danielson in any kind of serious wrestling match seems almost unfathomable, but that’s what we’ll get in the champion’s first pay-per-view title defense.

I have a feeling we’ll see very little real decline in this.

MJF might be looking for a way to steal the win late with a maximum of 1-3.

Hopefully, AEW can come up with something new besides a dynamite diamond ring, brass knuckles in a William Regal callback, a title belt or a low blow to get the job done.

However MJF will likely leave little doubt about his main-event wrestling chops.

AEW could probably get another meeting between MJF and Danielson on a dynamite if it wanted to.

I would love to reveal a new heater or direction for MJF and my suggestion is Kyla Rossi in a Chyna-like role.
