AEW Revolution 2024 Winners And Grades

AEW Revolution 2024, In what is sure to be a theme all night, Daniel Garcia walked out in Sting-inspired gear, including a jacket as part of a collaboration with Westside Gunn.

Nigel McGuinness was brilliant in his match-long defense of “Christ-ee-an Cage.”

Cage continued to taunt Garcia’s father as part of his morbid gimmick which has managed to avoid criticism of any kind.

AEW Revolution 2024, After several garden-variety referee distractions by the Patriarchy, Daddy Magic made the save. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough as additional referee distractions led to a win by Christian.

Christian Cage vs. Daniel Garcia Grade: B

One of the best highlights of this match came early on when Nigel McGuinness buried the meaningless Wrestling Observer Awards.

AEW Revolution 2024, Despite being a heel commentator, McGuinness continued to be biased against Bryan Danielson, but it’s okay, this storyline is so weak none of these fans treated Bryan Danielson as a heel either.

After rolling around in the ring for a while, Eddie Kingston won this match with a powerbomb. Kingston dedicated the match to Jun Akiyama, and got his elusive handshake from Bryan Danielson.

Bryan Danielson vs. Eddie Kingston Grade: B

AEW Revolution 2024, In Taz’s words, Jake “The Snake” Roberts just “missed a little Pyro Jones.”

Brian Cage wore Sting’s facepaint and a scorpion on his tights. After the ring cleared early, fans chanted “meat” as Cage, Will Hobbs, Lance Archer and Wardlow prepared for a four-way meat match.

AEW Revolution 2024, CMLL’s Magnus got the least heat of anybody in the match, but had the best gear.

The mini-meat exchange between Hook, Dante Martin, Chris Jericho and Magnus wasn’t nearly as impressive (or over) as the big meat exchange.

AEW Revolution 2024, In a great spot, Hook slapped on the RedRum simultaneously with a Lion Tamer on Wardlow.

AEW sprayed Will Hobbs with a fog machine as he was running full-speed.

AEW All-Star Scramble Match Grade: A

Roderick Strong Def. Orange Cassidy

AEW Revolution 2024, AEW once again began telling the story of Orange Cassidy being worn down from so many title defenses. It was a great story the first time around, but AEW needs to learn how to evolve Cassidy’s character in other ways.

Fans came alive for a gut-wrench powerbomb on the top turnbuckle, and Cassidy sold it perfectly.

As AEW continues to force the issue with Roderick Strong and the Kingdom, an Orange Punch was countered by Strong with an Undisputed Kingdom.

AEW Revolution 2024, After the match, Kyle O’Reilly hugged Roderick Strong, refused an Undisputed Kingdom t-shirt and whispered something into Strong’s ear. O’Reilly got a huge response.

Orange Cassidy vs. Roderick Strong Grade: B

Blackpool Combat Club Def. FTR

AEW Revolution 2024, In more cosplay, this time non-Sting related, Jon Moxley and Claudio Castagnoli walked out in spiked shoulder pads.

Fans were fully behind hometown heroes FTR as they took on BCC. Of course, this is AEW, so there were also split chants between FTR and BCC.

AEW Revolution 2024, 18 AEW wrestlers have appeared in five matches, and only two of them (Christian Cage, Roderick Strong kinda) were booed as actual heels.

As the match reached its climactic stages, it wasn’t Moxley, but Dax who began bleeding.

AEW Revolution 2024

The best spot of the match was a modified Uppercut Doomsday Device where Claudio Castagnoli ran up the ropes.

AEW Revolution 2024, As the match became bloodier and more awesome, Castagnoli and Moxley outlasted FTR with tandem rear-naked chokes.

BCC vs. FTR Grade: A-

“Timeless” Toni Storm Def. Deonna Purrazzo

AEW Revolution 2024, Toni Storm received two entrances. One with her old theme music, who ended up being Mariah May, and another with her “Timeless” Toni Storm gimmick. Both received huge pops.

After a series of hot matches, fans were very quiet for the opening moments of this match.

Toni Storm was the obvious babyface in this match, and Deonna wasn’t necessarily the heel, she was just there.

AEW Revolution 2024, Deonna Purrazzo made Toni Storm tap out, but per usual, the referee wasn’t paying attention. Storm won with outside interference in the popcorn match.

Timeless Toni Storm vs. Deonna Purrazzo Grade: C+

Will Ospreay Def. Konosuke Takeshita

AEW Revolution 2024, Don Callis compared Konosuke Takeshita vs. Will Ospreay to a one-on-one game between Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. What Callis doesn’t know, is that Jordan used to play Scottie one-on-one in practice, and Jordan ate Pippen alive. MJ destroyed Pippen so bad, Pippen would have to say “slow up, man!”

Fans went crazy for Will Ospreay, and stayed lit throughout one spot after another between Ospreay and Takeshita.

Like any Will Ospreay match, Ospreay was folded in half with a German Suplex.

AEW Revolution 2024, Ospreay did a great job selling a nearfall as he just barely got his shoulder up. The crowd fell for it, hook, like and sinker.

Takeshita barely hit a turnbuckle brainbuster, and it was a scary spot where Ospreay landed right on his head. To make matters worse, Ospreay had back contusions.

There was a series of moves and blows that ended in Takeshita kicking out of the Hidden Blade at one.

After a Tiger Driver ‘91, Ospreay hit a Hidden Blade for the win. An unbelievable match.

Excalibur announced it will be Kyle Fletcher vs. Will Ospreay at AEW Dynamite.

Samoa Joe Def. Swerve Strickland And Adam Page

AEW Revolution 2024, It goes without saying, but even a world championship match faced a tough challenge following Takeshita vs. Ospreay.

Swerve Strickland received a superstar entrance with endless call-and-response chants of “whose house?! Swerve’s House!”

AEW Revolution 2024, The story of this match was Joe and Swerve trying to destroy one another with Joe wisely allowing it to happen while picking his spots.

Page broke up a nearfall by Swerve and made sure to completely take Swerve out with the belt. Page hit two Buckshot Lariats on Samoa Joe, but there was no referee due to Page’s own doing.

AEW Revolution 2024, Page was within one count of winning the AEW World Heavyweight Championship, and Hangman attacked yet another referee to keep Swerve from winning.

Samoa Joe retained the AEW World Championship when Hangman Adam Page tapped out suspiciously. This led to the question of whether Hangman tapped out because he was trapped, or just to keep Swerve from winning the AEW World Championship.

Samoa Joe vs. Strickland vs. Page Grade: B+

Sting And Darby Allin Def. The Young Bucks

AEW Revolution 2024, Ric Flair appeared ringside long with special guest ring announcer Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat. The Young Bucks entered in old-school robes to immense heat.

There was a great video vignette of Sting, and since WWE refused to loan footage to AEW, it was filled with still photos and Sting’s moments in his AEW career.

AEW Revolution 2024, A Surfer Sting and a Wolfpac Sting, who were Sting’s sons, appeared onstage. Both participated early on with Stinger Splashes.

Nicholas Jackson hit a suplex power bomb through two tables, followed by Mathew Jackson hitting a superplex on Sting. These spots received “f the Young Bucks” chants.

Darby Allin went flying through glass from a 20-foot ladder. Sting’s career ending doesn’t mean Darby’s career should end too. Back inside the ring, Sting was then driven though another table from a ladder, but he immediately no-sold it.

Steamboat tried to get involved, striking Nicholas, but was laid out by Matthew. Flair then tried to shield Sting from Matthew Jackson, but the Young Bucks hit EVP Triggers on Flair and Steamboat.

AEW Revolution 2024, In a WWE callback, the Matthew Jackson said “we’re not sorry, we hate you!” before delivering a double-super kick. Also no-sold by Sting. Sting Kicked out of an EVP Trigger as the two-on-one assault continued. Sting kicked out of a second EVP Trigger at one.

Darby saved Sting from a TK Driver before another Scorpion Death Drop for a nearfall. Sting slapped on the Scorpion Death Lock and Matthew Jackson tapped out for the win.

AEW Revolution 2024, With three minutes remaining in the pay-per-view, Sting thanked the Greensboro crowd, and cut a short-but-sweet farewell promo. Sting’s promo ended on “I’ve got to wait, I’m getting cues, hold on.”
