The anticipation for AEW Revolution 2024 has reached a fever pitch, with over 16,000 fans flocking to the Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina to witness an unforgettable night of action, culminating in the retirement match of pro-wrestling legend Sting.

However, amidst the throngs of excited fans, some unexpected names have been spotted at the pay-per-view event. According to a recent update from Fightful Select, former WWE NXT star Bohdi Hayward has been seen in attendance at AEW Revolution. Joining him is also former WWE star Heath Slater, adding to the intrigue surrounding the event.

In addition to these surprising appearances, TNA’s Steve Maclin has also reportedly been spotted backstage at Revolution. Maclin’s presence has been rumored for some time, and he is said to be there to support his wife, ‘The Virtuosa’ Deonna Purrazzo, in her high-stakes match against Toni Storm for the AEW Women’s Championship.

“TNA’s Steve Maclin, who is a free agent in a couple of months, was planned to be at the show to support his wife Deonna Purrazzo.”


The presence of these notable figures from outside the AEW universe backstage at Revolution has sparked widespread discussion and speculation among fans.
