Last weekend we saw another installment of AEW Revolution and the expectations were high as usual for the event with the first barbed wire match on a major scale in the main event. To my knowledge the last major wrestling company to hold a bared wire match was ECW in 1997 between Terry Funk and Sabu where both men almost got severely injured. I will avoid pointing out that I was right about the main event and that it could've been done better if it wasn't confined to the gimmick. I thought a Cage match would've been able to accomplish the same blow off and then Kingston could've locked them inside.
The arrival of Ethan Page and Christian Cage is where my attention goes, because the ending of the event wasn't a shocked, but these debuts were. Page showed up in the "Face of Revolution" ladder match as the mystery opponent. Page had his contract with Impact Wrestling come up recently which made him a free agent. It was unclear what company would end up with Ethan as WWE seemed to have interest in him as well. Page and Alexander made up one of the best tag teams in wrestling for the last few years and now this is Page's chance to standout as a superstar. Page has always been a standout, but never got the opportunity to standout on a large scale until he ended up in Impact Wrestling.
In 2014, Christian would wrestle his last match after being forced into retirement by WWE before he was ready due to a concussion scare. Christian was stopped from competing due to not being cleared medically to get back in the ring. After walking out on stage at Revolution a new chapter of his career is ready to be written for him and he will hopefully be able to end his career on his terms. Originally the rumors kept our eyes on Kurt Angle and seeing Christian appear completely caught me off guard. I don't know what to expect from Christian now, but I will say it has me intrigued to see when Christian reappears on Dynamite and what comes next.
