Excalibur and Tony Schiavone welcome us to AEW Revolution! They go over some of the matches and the rules for the exploding barbed wire death match before introducing the first video.
A look at the tag title match between the Young Bucks and Chris Jericho & MJF. The attack on Papa Buck made the match personal, but how will that affect the match?
Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D. comes out to the stage. She says Rebel/Reba was attacked by Nyla Rose earlier and is not fit for competition tonight. Rebel limps out to the stage with a crutch as Baker clears the stage for her new partner, the cutest in the world, Maki Itoh!

Result: Britt Baker pins Thunder Rosa after Rebel hits Rosa in the head with a crutch
A very good and very fun match! It was amazing seeing Maki Itoh in Daily’s Place, and she was given lots of time to make a great impression on anyone who was unfortunate enough to have missed her matches during the Women’s Eliminator Tournament shows. Itoh and Baker essentially took turns legal in the ring with Itoh getting more time early in the match and Baker getting more time later. Thunder Rosa and Riho felt like a more cohesive team and even had some tandem moves, but the dirty tricks of Baker and Itoh kept them competitive in the match. There was some comedy, some strong style, some high-speed action, and some nice technical exchanges here. It was a little of everything and a lot of fun. It was a great way to start the night.
