It’s not every day that you see two competitors at a top-tier company churn out copper with bats wrapped in barbed wire, pry their heads open with a screwdriver, or use a bed of spikes. AEW offered that and more to its viewers at Full Gear 2019, as the apparent closure of an intense rivalry between Kenny Omega and Jon Moxley, which, however, received very mixed reviews.
The expression “blood and guts” taken to the maximum possible power within a “mainstream” product, which, by then, a server judged would be a rare bird, surely without continuity, within the history of AEW.
► The pride of Atsushi Onita
Today, 15 months after that brilliant meeting, Omega and Moxley cross paths again, although under very different circumstances: “The Best Bout Machine” is a clear rude who carries the AEW World Championship, while “Mox” wants to recover what it took from him on December 2.
Revolution 2021, scheduled for March 7, will now be the scene of their new duel, and it seems that not happy with that “Lights Out Match” of Full Gear, Omega and Moxley will go one step further, measuring themselves in an explosive “Deathmatch” with barbed wire.

Type of fight popularized by FMW, thanks to legends of the stature of Atsushi Onita, Hayabusa or Terry Funk, who turned it into real battles on the ring at the service of history; Unfortunately, a factor from which many attempts at recreations on US soil suffered a posteriori, ignoring that the spectacularity was also greatly reduced by the scarcity of resources. In fact, ECW only carried out one.
You already know that AEW is not limited in budget, precisely, and this point should be key: Omega vs. Moxley III has the power to finally serve as a worthy tribute in the US to that legacy of Onita y Cía which currently exerts so much influence on all the extreme-looking promotions throughout the world.
On the other hand, This is an interesting promotional strategy for fans of “hardcore” wrestling. (more numerous than you think), with the aforementioned opportunity to put on a good show and thus hook them on your product. Likewise, Moxley will once again operate on friendly ground, allowing him to shine at his best..
Step to remind you the AEW Revolution 2021 poster, which in addition to the “Deathmatch” that concerns us, will currently host another five clashes.
