In a dramatic turn of events on Wednesday's episode of "AEW Dynamite," a high-stakes bout between Hangman Adam Page and Swerve Strickland ended in a stalemate, setting the stage for an unexpected showdown at AEW Revolution.
The intense rivalry between Page and Strickland reached a fever pitch in a grueling thirty-minute encounter, where neither competitor could secure a victory. The contest, filled with relentless action and technical prowess, showcased the athletes' determination but concluded with a time limit draw, leaving the audience in suspense.
Triple Threat Turmoil
Following the match, Strickland's request for an additional five minutes was met with refusal from Page, further intensifying their rivalry. Amidst this unresolved outcome, AEW Broadcaster Tony Schiavone delivered a bombshell announcement.
AEW management had decided that Samoa Joe, the reigning AEW World Champion, would defend his title in a triple threat match against both Strickland and Page. This decision was met with mixed reactions: Page expressed outrage, feeling that Strickland had merely withstood him rather than defeated him.
Similarly, Samoa Joe voiced his displeasure, believing that neither challenger had earned the right to contest for the championship, given the inconclusive result of their match. This development adds a thrilling layer to the already highly anticipated AEW Revolution, scheduled for March 3 at the historic Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina.
In what promises to be a memorable evening, the event will feature a marquee match that will see WWE Hall of Famer Sting, teaming with Darby Allin, in what is billed as his retirement match. The night will also include several high-profile title defenses: AEW Women's World Champion Toni Storm will put her championship on the line against Deonna Purrazzo, and AEW International Champion Orange Cassidy will defend his title against Roderick Strong.
AEW Revolution is shaping up to be a landmark event, not only for its significance in the wrestling world but also as a testament to the dynamic storytelling and athletic excellence that AEW continues to deliver. Fans worldwide are eagerly anticipating this event, which promises to deliver high-octane action and potentially career-defining moments for the athletes involved.
