Top Three Moments Of AEW Revolution 2024

On Sunday, March 3rd, AEW held its big event, AEW Revolution 2024. The show saw a ton of great moments and some incredible action. It was headlined by Sting’s Final Match as Sting and Darby Allin defended their AEW Tag Team Championships in the main event of the evening against The Young Bucks.

We also saw a massive three-way match that saw Samoa Joe defend his AEW World Championship against Swerve Strickland and “Hangman” Adam Page. Also, Toni Storm defended her AEW Women’s Championship against Deonna Purrazzo, and a dream match between Konosuke Takeshita and Will Ospreay took place. So, what were the three moments of the night?

Top Three Moments of AEW Revolution 2024

3. Roderick Strong dethrones Orange Cassidy and KOR returns

At AEW Revolution, we saw Orange Cassidy attempt to defend his International Championship against arguably his toughest challenger yet. Roderick Strong faced off with Cassidy in an incredible match that ended with Strong dethroning Cassidy to become the new International Champion.

After the match, Matt Taven and Mike Bennett came down to celebrate with their fellow running mate. However, the even bigger story came after the match when Kyle O’Reilly made his return and hugged it out with Strong. The interesting part here is that it looked as if O’Reilly was going to attack him from behind at first. Teasing a Kyle O’Reilly vs. Roderick Strong rivalry down the line soon? We’ll see.

O’Reilly also had an interesting interaction with Strong’s new faction mates, Taven and Bennett before he made his way to the back. This was a very interesting and fun turn of events. Strong looks great with the International Championship on him, and hopefully, he gets a nice long run with the belt.

2. Konosuke Takeshita vs. Will Ospreay

Despite this being not so much a “moment,” but a match, this deserves the number two spot. Wow, I was tired just watching those two go at it. Towards the end of the show, we saw the dream match between Konosuke Takeshita and Will Ospreay. This was probably one of the greatest matches in AEW’s history, and it’s not close.

Takeshita and Ospreay tore the house down in Ospreay’s first official AEW match as an exclusive member of the AEW roster. Despite the ending and winner being easily predicted, both men had a match-of-the-year contender, and it deserves to be #2 on this list. Fans chanted “FIGHT FOREVER!” multiple times in this match, and it’s easy to see why.

If this is a sign of things to come for Will Ospreay in AEW, then buckle up. There are many dream matches that we could very well see in an AEW ring with Ospreay (i.e. Swerve), but this could also include a match with Kenny Omega. Despite their previous bouts, Ospreay vs. Omega in an AEW ring could very well tear the house down.

1. Sting and Darby Allin retain their gold, Goodbye, Sting. 

In the main event of the night, we saw the final match of the Icon, Sting. Sting is a legend and icon in every sense of the word. From the video package before the match to the entrance, to the match, everything was magic. This was very well done on AEW’s part and have to give credit where it’s due. This whole thing was a great ending to Sting’s storybook career.

This match saw Sting team up with Darby Allin to defend their AEW Tag Team Championships against The Young Bucks in a tornado tag team match. This means that both members of the team didn’t have to tag in and out, and it was ultimately an anything-goes tag team match. This match itself was chaotic in the best sense of the word.

Ultimately, it ended with a Coffin Drop on Matthew Jackson, followed by Sting locking in his finishing move to retain their AEW Tag Team Championships. What a match, and what a show. This could have been one of the better AEW pay-per-views in recent memory, and it delivered from top-to-bottom.
