AEW presented one of the most enthralling and exciting wrestling extravaganzas in the history of the company with their Revolution pay-per-view, which took place in the Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina.

The night was headlined by the highly anticipated main event, pitting Sting and Darby Allin defending the AEW World tag team titles against The Young Bucks, being The Icon’s retirement match.

During the match, one of the most talked about and grueling sights was Darby Allin diving off the ladder and landing on a glass table, that had sent shockwaves across the entire arena who witnessed it.

According to new report by Sports Illustrated, Darby’s spot was indeed seen as dangerous with safety measures taken, a proper rehearsal, and a doctor being on standby. Moreover, AEW had a contingency plan in place for the finish if Darby Allin had been unable to return to compete in the match.


“Unquestionably, the swanton off the ladder was excessive. Adding to an extremely dangerous spot is that glass, clearly, is unpredictable. But, multiple people confirmed, that was the one spot Darby wanted above all. There was a Plan B with a different finish in the event he could not return to the match, which turned out to be no more than a precaution. Once it was determined that Darby would make the jump, safety measures were applied. A rehearsal occurred earlier than usual in the day, and a stunt coordinator instructed how to place the items and reviewed the proper protocols. There were also nearby doctors anticipating the spot, and they were on high alert. And had Darby not been able to return to the match, the Bucks were prepared to call an alternate finish.

The match proved to be an absolutely stellar showdown, as things went according to plan despite the high-risk spot with Sting picking up the win for his team and ending his storied wrestling career as a champion.
