It was previously reported that AEW’s upcoming PPV called AEW Revolution was announced to be taking place on Saturday, February 27th from Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida, but Dave Meltzer mentioned on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the promotion decided that Revolution will not be taking place on February 27th as originally announced since that date has been talked about as a possibility of when YouTube star Jake Paul’s next major boxing PPV will happen and they didn’t want to go head-to-head with a blockbuster showdown between Jake Paul and Canelo Alvarez.
Dave Meltzer then noted that Saturday, March 6th or Sunday, March 7th have been discussed as possible new dates for Revolution, but if Revolution would have taken place on Saturday, March 6th, that would have brought competition from UFC 259.
According to F4WOnline.com, AEW Revolution has been set to take place on Sunday, March 7th. This will be the first time that an AEW PPV will take place on a Sunday as the company typically airs its shows on Saturday nights. The only match that has been announced for AEW Revolution is “The Icon” Sting and TNT Champion Darby Allin vs. FTW Champion Brian Cage and Ricky Starks in a Street Fight.
