If exploding barbed wire deathmatches aren’t your fancy, then Jon Moxley recommends you do this to your viewing device while tuning into the main event of AEW Revolution: “Turn it off.”
Moxley spoke with Gary Cassidy of Inside The Ropes and was crystal clear on his thoughts about the match he’s going to have with Kenny Omega being too violent for some.
“It’s the good thing about AEW, we’ve got a little something for everybody, but there’s really no way to sugarcoat an Exploding Barbed Wire Death Match, you know, so if you don’t want to see it, then don’t watch. If you think your kid is going to be a little bit too young to watch it, a little bit too violent for them, don’t watch it.”
The challenger to Omega’s AEW Title feels that “big fight feel” combined with the element of danger has been absent from the squared circle for some time and believes that the impeding Revolution match will bring that back for fans.
“I think it’s something wrestling has been missing lately. I think it’s something wrestling has been missing in the last several years, or maybe a decade or more, or whatever, is the element of actual danger. An element of… You know, that feeling of, when it’s main event time, when the bell rings and the ring announcer walks down the aisle, this is the moment where all the marbles are on the line and there’s not an element of danger, that element of the Mike Tyson fight or, ‘Well, somebody could really…’ We’re really risking our lives. These gentlemen are doing something extraordinary here and really putting their body on the line.”
