AEW returned to pay-per-view on Sunday night with AEW Revolution 2021. Revolution 2021 marks the first PPV event for AEW since this past November’s Full Gear.
Three titles were on the line as AEW looking to push the envelope in the main event where Kenny Omega defended his world championship against Jon Moxley in an exploding barbed wire deathmatch. But if hardcore stuff isn’t your thing, there’s still a lot to look forward to: Young Bucks defended their tag titles against Jericho and MJF, the in-ring return of Sting and the announcement of a “major star” signing with AEW.
AEW Revolution took place out of Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida. Unlike WWE’s pay-per-view events, it was in front of fans. It was also AEW’s first pay-per-view on a Sunday. While WWE holds its signature events on Sundays, AEW has historically slated its four annual PPVs on Saturdays.
