AEW Revolution notes: Samoa Joe retains World Title, Kingston & Danielson shake hands, Wardlow, Ospreay-Takeshita

In the semi-main event, Samoa Joe submitted Hangman Adam Page with the Coquina Clutch to retain the AEW World Championship. There were two occasions during the three-way when Page attacked a referee. He took out both Paul Turner and Bryce Remsburg. Remsburg was taken out to stop Swerve Strickland from winning the title. 

Coming out of the eight-man All-Star Scramble as the winner was Wardlow. He earned an AEW World Title shot by besting Magnus, Chris Jericho, HOOK, Powerhouse Hobbs, Dante Martin, Brian Cage and Lance Archer.

After Eddie Kingston bested Bryan Danielson to retain the Continental Crown Championship, he awaited his handshake from Danielson. Danielson was initially reluctant, but he shook Kingston’s hand and in a backstage interview, both talents showed respect to one another. 

Will Ospreay clashed with Konosuke Takeshita and Ospreay came out on top. Afterwards, ROH World Television Champion and fellow member of The Don Callis Family, Kyle Fletcher, showed up and embraced Ospreay. It was made official for the 3/6 Dynamite that Fletcher and Ospreay are going one-on-one. 

After The Bang Bang Scissor Gang (Jay White, Austin Gunn, Colten Gunn, Billy Gunn, Max Caster & Anthony Bowens) defeated Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett, Satnam Singh, Willie Mack and Private Party (Isiah Kassidy & Marq Quen) on the Zero Hour, Jay White got on the microphone and said maybe he’ll handle some ‘big business’ of his own on March 13th in Boston, Massachusetts. 

For the AEW Women’s World Title match, Mariah May came out to Toni Storm’s old theme music and wearing her previous attire. ‘Timeless’ Toni Storm then made her way to the ring. Deonna Purrazzo dealt with distractions from both May and Luther which caused her to lose. 

TNA Wrestling sent their congratulations to Sting for his retirement match. Sting and Darby Allin defeated The Young Bucks (Matthew & Nicholas Jackson) to hold onto the AEW World Tag Team Championships. 

In the show opener, with assistance from Nick Wayne, Christian Cage defeated Daniel Garcia to retain the TNT Title. 

Blackpool Combat Club (Jon Moxley & Claudio Castagnoli) picked up a win over FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler). Moxley and Castagnoli came out to the ring wearing the Road Warrior spiked shoulder pads. 

Joining the Zero Hour to talk about Sting’s final match was David Crockett.
