AEW Revolution 2021 match card: Will there be a second women’s match?

New, 7 comments

AEW is charging hard toward their next PPV event. Revolution is scheduled for Sunday March 7. The card is starting to take shape with six official matches so far.

  • AEW World Championship: Kenny Omega (c) vs Jon Moxley in EXPLODING BARBED WIRE DEATHMATCH
  • AEW Women’s Championship: Hikaru Shida (c) vs tournament winner
  • AEW Tag Team Championship: Young Bucks (c) vs Chris Jericho & MJF
  • Street Fight: Ricky Starks & Brian Cage vs Darby Allin & Sting!
  • Face of the Revolution Ladder Match: Cody Rhodes vs Scorpio Sky vs Pentagon vs TBA vs TBA vs TBA
  • Big Money Match: Matt Hardy vs Hangman Page

AEW PPVs generally have seven to nine main card bouts. That means we could be getting three more contests. Likely choices are Miro versus Orange Cassidy and FTR versus Jurassic Express. Tully Blanchard is making a return to the ring in trios action on March 3, so there is room to explore a two-on-two tag bout for the PPV.

That leaves several notable names off the card, which could be in the mix for qualifying bouts for the ladder match. Lance Archer and Fenix will go one-on-one on Dynamite. PAC, Eddie Kingston, Matt Sydal, and a representative from the Dark Order could be in the remaining two qualifiers.

One of the talking points is if there will be a second women’s match for Revolution. Out of the seven official PPVs in AEW history, every show has featured two women’s bouts. Four of those seven had the ladies in the pre-show. That’s a good sign that AEW will be booking a second attraction for this upcoming event. The question then becomes who will fill that role.

I think Riho is a lock, whether she wins the tournament to face Shida or she partakes in the second match. Thunder Rosa is also a strong contender for action. She has three marquee rematches set up with capturing AEW gold against Shida, getting revenge on Dr. Britt Baker DMD, or regaining the NWA Women’s Championship against Serena Deeb. Deeb previously defended that belt against Allysin Kay on the pre-show for Full Gear. The picture should become clearer as the women’s tournament plays out in the coming days.

Do you like the Revolution card so far? Which matches would you like to see added to the show? Out of the women, who do you think will get the call for the second bout?
