AEW is reportedly moving the date of their Revolution pay-per-view from the last week of February to March.
According to the Wrestling Observer Radio, Revolution’s date is likely to be March 7th, which is a Sunday. This would make it the first AEW pay-per-view to be held on a Sunday, rather than a Saturday.
Since AEW started holding pay-per-views, they have been scheduled on Saturdays. The original announced date of Revolution was February 27th, which is indeed a Saturday.
The reason for the date change and day change is due to the fact that AEW is trying to avoid going head to head with a couple of boxing pay-per-views.
If they keep the original date, February 27th, for Revolution, they would be up against boxing’s Canelo-Alvarez’s fight.
Meanwhile, the next Saturday, March 6th will also have a boxing pay-per-view. This will feature a triple championship main card, headlined by a bout between middleweight champ Israel Adesanya and light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz.
The official announcement of Revolution’s new date is expected this week. Currently, there is only one match that has been announced for Revolution, which would be Sting’s first AEW match.
Sting, and TNT Champion Darby Allin, will be in a street fight against Team Taz’s Ricky Starks and Brian Cage.
