AEW REVOLUTION LIVE BLOG & MATCH COVERAGE
Humankind has reached a turning point, poised for conflict at ground zero, ready for a war. Do we look to our unearthly guide or to white coat heroes searching for a cure? Me, I’m just here to liveblog this pro wrestling show for you, folks.
The Buy-In begins and we get a little hype from commentary before getting down to business.
Dr. Britt Baker, DMD makes her entrance and gets on the mic.
She says Reba was brutally attacked by Nyla Rose so she’s injured and can’t compete. She claims it ridiculous that a doctor’s note from her wasn’t enough, but she got the Jaguars team doctor to agree with her. She brings Reba out, hobbling on a crutch, and says Tony Khan agreed that they need a replacement and she found the perfect partner.
It’s Maki Itoh!
She dances on the stage and sings a little before we get to the match.
