This is one of AEW's biggest matches ever, so there's no way they're going to disappoint, right? Well, we'll see, comrades. Haw haw haw haw!

Kenny Omega vs. Jon Moxley – Barbed Wire Deathmatch
Finally, Omega and Moxley are face to face in a ring made of barbed wire and surrounded by explosives. Bryce Remsburg, the referee, is wearing a fire-retardant suit. Moxley and Omega are in t-shirts, which seems unwise, comrades. Truthfully, El Presidente has felt a bit nervous this entire PPV. Mostly, that's because the PPV is called Revolution, and back when I was running a South American dictatorship, comrades, you had to be very careful of those. Haw haw haw haw!
But also, this match has a lot of potential for violence, especially remembering the first match between these two in AEW, which also ended up very hardcore. But it doesn't get more hardcore than an exploding barbed wire deathmatch, comrades. So let's get one thing out of the way: the rules stipulate that there's a 30 minute countdown from the start of the match before the bombs surround the ring explode, so right off the bat, you know this match is going to go longer than 30 minutes.
One side of the ring, the one leading to the ramp, has no barbed wire on the ropes. This both makes it easy to get in and out of the ring, and gives Kenny Omega something to bounce off of when hitting moves. Moxley is the first to hit barbed wire when Omega throws powder in his eyes to blind him and then Irish whips him into the ropes, kicking off a small explosion. After some more offense and Kotaru Crusher onto a garbage can, Moxley is busted open. He fights back but gets tossed through a barbed wire board leaning against the corner of the match. Moxley is, as Don Callis calls it, "a bloody mess." And the match is just getting started, comrades.
The tide changes quickly and Moxley manages to shove Omega into the ropes off a submission attempt for an explosion. Then another. Moxley tries a pumphandle suplex into another board in the corner, but Omega blocks. He tries a snapdragon, but Moxley blocks. Moxley hits the pumphandle and now Omega is looking pretty bloody, with a lot of cuts on his arms and torso. Moxley backdrops Omega on a barbed-wire-covered steel chair. Then he wraps some barbed wire around his arm, but Omega hits two snapdragons and V-Trigger. But Moxley shrugs them off and hits a clothesline with the barbed wire arm. The match is about halfway over now.
Omega shoves Moxley into the ropes, forgetting they're rigged to explode. They explode in Kenny's eyes. They battle onto the apron where Moxley hits a Paradigm Shift on Omega off the apron though some exploding barbed wire boards on the floor. It takes them a while to crawl out of that one. Moxley grabs a large portion of barbed wire and brings it in the ring with himself and Omega, who is now also bleeding from the face. Moxley punches Omega with the barbed wire repeatedly. Music starts playing indicating the ring will explode soon. Tony Schiavone tells us that's a ten-minute warning, so this music is going to play for ten minutes apparently?
Omega hits a V-Trigger. Then another. Then a One-Winged Angel. Moxley gets his leg on the ropes, which causes an explosion. The explosion blinds Omega. Moxley grabs a barbed-wire-covered baseball bat and… the Good Brothers run out. They hand Kenny his own bat. Moxley whups their asses, but Kenny hits him with the bat, and the bat has explosives in it two. Moxley still kicks out at two.
The Good Brothers and Omega team up on Moxley. Moxley hits a One-Winged Angel through a chair and gets the pin.
Winner: Kenny Omega
El Presidente's Rating: ☭☭½
Okay, so they proved El Presidente wrong. The match did not last 30 minutes. Don Callis heads to the ring to check on Omega. Commentary points out the clock is still ticking. Moxley tries to get Omega to leave, but he and the Good Brothers want to beat on Moxley some more. They handcuff Moxley's hands behind his back and stomp on him. Omega cuts a promo to a camera, but it's not the camera in use so we don't hear it. They beat down Moxley until the one-minute countdown starts.
Eddie Kingston runs out to try to save Moxley. He gets in the ring and tries to wake Moxley up, but he can't. So he decides to cover Moxley's body with his own as the clock hits zero and… a few sparklers go off and some very minor explosions way outside the ring. The crowd boos.
Comrades, I honestly thought this was a joke played by the Good Brothers, but Kingston was apparently knocked unconscious by this pathetic explosion, and commentary sells it like a horrible tragedy, so it was meant to be serious, which means whoever was in charge of making that pyro look good is responsible for AEW's most epic botch of all time. And to botch the ending of a show like this one. Oof, comrades.
Well, that leaves just one more thing, which is a message from Keighleyanne, the wife of Bleeding Cool's own Chad McMahon. Chad, Keighleyanne tells me that she has heard your sad, groveling messages begging her to take you back, amigo, and she has an answer for you… but she will not give you that answer until Bleeding Cool's live coverage of WrestleMania! Haw haw haw haw! Until next time, my friends: socialism or death!
Comrades, the capitalist pigs that control the means of production at Bleeding Cool have demanded I provide you with this paragraph of SEO keyword-rich text so that they can continue to fill their coffers with the product of the people's labor. One day, El Presidente vows, they will all die like dogs. But until that day comes, my friends, I must play their game for now.
