AEW kicked off the Revolution main show with Ricky Starks versus Chris Jericho. It appears that the promotion switched plans for the pay-per-view match order as Starks versus Jericho wasn’t listed as the show opener in the reports.

As originally reported by Sean Sapp from Fightful’s paywall, the “Final Burial” match between Christian Cage and Jack Perry was listed as the show opener, with Starks versus Jericho following up on the bout.

As of now, it’s unclear why AEW made the change, and fans are left to speculate if more changes to the match order will be made as the event continues. The original match order, as reported by Sapp, included a mix of championship matches and highly anticipated bouts.


The match card for AEW Revolution included:

  • Zero Hour: Mark Briscoe & Lucha Bros vs. Ari Daivari & Varsity Athletes
  • Final Burial: Christian Cage vs. Jack Perry
  • Chris Jericho vs. Ricky Starks
  • Trios Title: House of Black vs. Elite
  • Women’s Title: Saraya vs. Ruby Soho vs. Jamie Hayter
  • Texas Death Match: Hangman Page vs. Jon Moxley
  • TNT Title: Wardlow vs. Samoa Joe
  • Tag Team Title: Gunns vs. Lethal & Jarrett vs. Orange Cassidy & Danhausen vs. Acclaimed
  • AEW Title Iron Man: MJF vs. Bryan Danielson

It’s worth noting that AEW has made similar changes to their match order in the past, sometimes even mid-show. Regardless, it’s always interesting for fans to see how a pay-per-view event will unfold, especially when it deviates from the initial plans.
