• Tony Khan Defends Ring Explosion Botch At AEW Revolution
As seen in the main event of last night’s AEW Revolution 2021 pay-per-view, Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions The Good Brothers (Doc Gallows & Karl Anderson) helped Kenny Omega defeat Jon Moxley in a brutal “Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch” to retain the AEW World Championship.
The heels kept attacking Moxley after the match and handcuffed both of Moxley’s hands behind his back. They didn’t want Moxley to leave the ring as the ring was scheduled to explode in a few minutes.
Eddie Kingston came out to save Moxley, but couldn’t do it. The ring exploded, but it looked like it was botched as only a little pyro & smoke went off.
Many fans compared the “explosion” to Gillberg’s weak entrance pyro.
WWE NXT wrestler Shotzi Blackheart thought the same and tweeted a GIF of Gillberg’s entrance pyro after the Revolution main event:

RAW wrestler T-Bar then went on to tweet the following:

After the PPV went off the air, Moxley said the following about the ring explosion botch:
“Kenny Omega may be a tough son of a b*tch, but he can’t make an exploding ring worth a sh*t!”
In the post-AEW Revolution PPV media scrum, AEW President Tony Khan defended the ending and said the following:
“I don’t know what people really wanted, unless you actually wanted us to explode the guys at the end, there’s only so much you can do.
So without blowing the ring and both guys up, I think the basic explanation is that Kenny’s ring set to explode, his plan, as a heel, to build this thing with a hammer and nails as we saw, the final bomb just didn’t go off.”
