AEW Revolution Update: Cancellation Details of the Anticipated Meat Madness Mat

3 Key Points

  • The “Meat Madness” match at AEW Revolution was canceled due to participant injuries, with an Eight-Man Scramble arranged as a replacement.
  • Investigations revealed the cancellation wasn’t due to injuries of the initially announced wrestlers but because of unavailable additional competitors.
  • The All-Star Eight-Man Scramble now includes notable wrestlers like Chris Jericho and FTW Champion Hook, with remaining spots to be determined in upcoming AEW events.

Match Cancellation Sparks Fan Curiosity

AEW’s announcement of a “Meat Madness” match featuring Miro, Powerhouse Hobbs, Lance Archer, and Wardlow at the AEW Revolution pay-per-view had fans buzzing. Yet, days before the February 28th episode of “AEW Dynamite,” Tony Khan revealed the match’s cancellation on X, citing injuries. Curiously, Hobbs, Archer, and Wardlow were promptly included in a newly announced All-Star Eight-Man Scramble, leading to speculation about the nature and identity of the injured parties.

Behind the Scenes of the Switch

Further digging by Fightful Select shed light on the situation, indicating that no injuries were sustained by the originally announced competitors. Instead, the pivot was made because potential additional participants were not available for the event. The specifics of these wrestlers and the reasons for their absence remain undisclosed. With this adjustment, AEW fans are left to wonder what else was planned for the now-canceled “Meat Madness.”

A New Direction: The All-Star Eight-Man Scramble

In the wake of the cancellation, AEW swiftly introduced the All-Star Eight-Man Scramble as a compelling alternative. This high-stakes match, promising a shot at the AEW World Championship for the victor, has already confirmed the inclusion of Chris Jericho, FTW Champion Hook, and Bryan Cage. Competitors for the remaining spots will be decided in upcoming matches on “AEW Rampage” and “AEW Collision,” featuring talents like Magnus, Matt Sydal, Penta El Zero Miedo, and others vying for their chance at glory.
