Backstage Lexy Nair is with Kris Statlander, Willow Nightingale & Stokely Hathaway. Nair mentioned Statlander’s loss to Skye Blue on Dynamite and said that they would meet Skye Blue & TBS Champion Julia Hart on Revolution Pre Show. She asked if their tactics would be different. Hathaway said he was a fan of The View and Whoopi Goldberg and said that the key word was accountability. He kept trying to rest his arm on Statander’s shoulder and she kept knocking it off. Nightingale told Hathaway to shut up and stop talking. At Revolution Nightingale and Statlander are going to kick Blue & Hart’s ass.

After the break Tony Schiavone introduced Wardlow & he said that it looks like he finally got someone’s attention. He said that 2 years ago, he won the Face Of The Revolution ladder match and that 1 year ago, he choked out their king. He said that this year, he finally gets his shot at the AEW World Title after he wins the All Star Scramble match. He said that the real question is who the champion would be. He said that it doesn’t matter. If it’s Hangman Page, he’ll slap his mustache into the 3rd row and send him back into depression. He said if it’s Swerve Strickland he’s going kick the front door of his house down and whoop his ass from the basement to the attic because nobody gets to eat before him. He told him to swerve back into his own lane and dance his ass to the back of the line. He said Swerve’s house only exists in his world.

Wardlow then turned his attention to AEW World Champion Samoa Joe and said that he is sick of dumb hillbillies chanting Joe’s name. He said he hopes it’s Joe because everybody knows he’s in his spot and this time he’s going to finish the job. He said not only will he take his spot and his title but he will also beat Joe so bad that he will be forced to put on a headset and sit at the announce table where he belongs. He said that he is him and will always be him and at Revolution, he will remind everyone that he is the Face Of The Revolution and the uncrowned king. He concluded that this is no longer wrestling this is war.

Chris Jericho came out on the stage. He said that Wardlow isn’t fighting Swerve, Page or Joe. He said he’s not sure if Wardlow has ever heard of him. He said he’s not an all star but one of the greatest to ever do this. He said if Wardlow thinks he’s going to steamroll over him and the other 6 competitors, he reminded him that he’s the first AEW World Champion and an 8x champion. He added that makes it Jericho 8 Wardlow 0. He said that before Wardlow disrespects him, he reminds Wardlow that it’s been 4 years since he lost the title to Jon Moxley. Winning the Scramble match at Revolution gets him back to where he thinks he can be because he’s good enough.

Jericho asked Wardlow if he thinks he is. He said Wardlow is complaining about being overlooked and that people used to chant his name. He asked Wardlow if he even though that the reason they stopped chanting his name is because he wasn’t as good as he thinks he is. Jericho called Wardlow Mike.

Wardlow said that Jericho was right because he was this close to the top of the mountain but after Double Or Nothing he began to progressively step down from the mountain. He said it pissed him off to the point that he let it eat him alive to where he took work home and let it impact his personal life. He said he lost his best friend and he lost himself but after sitting at home for 3 months with no phone call, he slowly started to remember who he was and he did what he has done so many times before pick himself up off the floor, put himself back together and come back to remind everyone who the hell he is.

Wardlow yells I am Wardlow! I am the biggest and baddest son of a bitch to set foot in a wrestling ring. He said he doesn’t give a damn what Jericho’s name is and how many titles he’s won. He reiterated that he’s done eating his scraps. He said if Jericho doesn’t think he’s good enough come down to the ring so he can show him who the hell he is. Jericho said he would come down and shove the rocket up his ass but was attacked from behind by Powerhouse Hobbs. Hobbs beat Jericho with punches on the stage. He then stared and jawed at Wardlow to end the segment.

Backstage Lexy Nair is with Serena Deeb. Nair said that Deeb was the most experienced wrestler in the women’s locker room and undefeated. She added that we’ve seen another side of her and asked her to comment. Deeb said not only is she undefeated but is also undeniable and unstoppable putting on clinic after clinic every week. She said no one has challenged her which makes sense because she is the Professor and the Woman of 1,000 holds. She said the women in AEW wouldn’t know the difference between a wrist lock and a wristwatch then challenged any woman to step up and enter Deeb’s Dojo so that she can show everyone that the is the final boss.
