AEW Revolution takes place this Sunday, March 7th. Last year’s event was a huge success for the company as it was considered to be the show of the year and featured the match of the year in the Young Bucks against Adam Page and Kenny Omega.
A lot has change in a year, but this one looks to have equally high expectations. The show will be headlined by an exploding barbed wire death match between Kenny Omega and Jon Moxley. This is the type of match that happened a few times in Japan in the late 1990s, but has never occurred on U.S. soil or on an American pay-per-view. AEW is setting the expectations sky high for this one and you have to think that they are going to deliver.
Kenny Omega is a pretty big favorite to retain in that match. The wisdom among fans seems to be that Jon Moxley is due to become a father soon so this match could be his way to get some time off for maternity leave. That does make a certain amount of sense, but this is also Jon Moxley we are talking about. He is AEW’s ace and it’s hard to imagine him being gone for too long, even if he does have a baby on the way. Time will tell.
There is also a big World Tag Team title match between the champions, the Young Bucks, and MJF & Chris Jericho. MJF joining the Inner Circle is a story that has been dominating AEW television for some time now and it feels like this may be a major turning point in that story, one way or the other. The Bucks are major favorites to retain here.
AEW Revolution 2021 Betting Odds:
- Adam Page -350 vs. Matt Hardy +225
- Darby Allin & Sting -450 vs. Brian Cage & Ricky Starks +275
- Best Friends -160 vs. Miro & Kip Sabian +120
- The Young Bucks -250 vs. Chris Jericho & MJF +170
- Kenny Omega -550 vs. Jon Moxley +325
Revolution will also feature the AEW debut of Sting as he teams with Darby Allin to take on Team Taz, Brian Cage and Ricky Starks. The Allin and Sting team is a huge -450 favorite as few people can see Sting losing his first match with the company.
Matt Hardy and Adam Page face off in a “money match” with their first quarter earnings at stake. Hangman is a big favorite here at -350, but this is a place where I think we might see an upset. I won’t like it and I would be very annoyed if it happened, but it is a huge heel move to take someone’s money during a pandemic. That seems like something Matt Hardy would do.
The only match with real close betting odds is Orange Cassidy and Chuck Taylor at -160 taking on Miro and Kip Sabian at +120. This is a tough one because Miro probably shouldn’t be losing to anyone right now, but the story works for Orange and Chuck to get their comeuppance against Miro here. The odds with this are right on as it is a real coinflip to me.
There are a few more matches on this card that don’t have betting odds just yet. I will update this post when they are released.
