After the Feb. 22 edition of Dynamite, AEW only has three episodes of television left before their Revolution PPV in San Francisco.
Good thing they got busy adding to the card for Mar. 5.
First up was the latest development in the long-running Ricky Starks/Chris Jericho storyline. Absolute cut a promo where he accepted that Le Champion was going to keep using his Jericho Appreciation Society henchman to avoid facing him again, so he was moving on. But as soon as Starks produced an open contract, Jericho made his entrance. Ricky’s readiness to put their issues in the rearview — and a timely run-in from Peter Avalon as someone who did want to a Revolution match — conned the veteran into signing on the dotted line. A “You Just Made The List”-like click of the pen, and the match was booked. And with conditions favoring our hero...
Who's got a pen?! Let's sign this thing!@IAmJericho vs. @starkmanjones ONE-ON-ONE is OFFICIAL for #AEWRevolution, with JAS banned from ringside!— All Elite Wrestling (@AEW) February 23, 2023

Then, after Toni Storm helped Saraya steal a win from Skye Blue, Jamie Hayter & Dr. Britt Baker ran in to prevent them from spray painting their signature “L” on Blue. Ruby Soho appeared, but she still didn’t pick a side in the AEW Originals vs. ex-WWE Superstars rivalry. Instead, she signaled that she wants a shot at Hayter’s Women’s title. An interview with the champ later in the show proposed a Triple Threat with both Ruby and Saraya for the belt.

We also had a Battle Royale for one of the two open spots in a 4Way for The Gunn’s Tag belts. Thanks to a few Satnam Singh assists, Jeff Jarrett outlasted Aussie Open, Lucha Bros, LFI & others, finally eliminating Best Friend Trent Beretta to earn a place for himself & Jay Lethal in the Revolution title bout.

It also looks like we’ll be getting a House of Black vs. The Elite Trios championship showdown, but Malakai Black & company said they want to discuss that face-to-face on Rampage.
The #HouseOfBlack will bring a firestorm to purify the current landscape of #AEW. @malakaiblxck @SNM_Buddy @Brodyxking @TheJuliaHart Tune in to #AEWDynamite LIVE on TBS! pic.twitter.com/QKgSU0TEfc— All Elite Wrestling (@AEW) February 23, 2023
