Jon Moxley is banged up, but not dead following his AEW Revolution exploding barbed wire deathmatch.
The ending of AEW Revolution saw Moxley eat an exploding barbed wire baseball bat to the face, take a one-winged angel on a chair, and then lie prone in the ring as the explosion timer was going down. Eddie Kingston ran in to cover Moxley as the timer went off, but instead of a bang, sparklers went off on the ringposts while some minor explosions happened around ringside.
Fortunately, no one died in the deathmatch and Moxley credited Omega's lack of construction skills for his life.
"Jacksonville, I think me and all yall can agree on one thing. Kenny Omega may be a tough son of a bitch, but he can't make an exploding ring worth a shit. I've seen more dangerous shit on 'Ridiculousness' on MTV, what the fuck was that. I'm still standing bitch! .....Not....well," said Moxley as he was painfully getting to his feet following AEW Revolution.
Moxley went on to thank the crowd for coming out while putting over the company and the pay-per-view. He also said he'll be back for his AEW World Title.
.@JonMoxley didn’t regain the belt tonight but he regained a friend in Eddie Kingston! King came to save Mox from the final blast, which wasn’t enough to keep Mox & Eddie down for good!— All Elite Wrestling (@AEW) March 8, 2021
