AEW Executive Vice President and World Champion Kenny Omega recently took to his Twitter and revealed the rules of the Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch, a match he will be competing in against Jon Moxley for his AEW World Title, in full detail and even with a drawing.
The rules of the match are as follows:
- 3 sides of the ring ropes will be wrapped in barbed wire. A wrestler making contact with the barbed wire will trigger the explosives on the corresponding side of the ring.
- There will be an area around the ring called “Triple Hell,” an area which is made up of three zones on the floor that are wired to explosives, and with exploding platforms that have more barbed wire on them.
- There will be a 30-minute countdown timer in the match and when the countdown timer winds down, all the explosives in and around the ring will detonate at once for a finale explosion.
A fan then took to Twitter and asked Kenny Omega why only three of the four sides of the ring will be wrapped in barbed wire. Omega said they are making him keep a side clear in case of an emergency.
