In-Ring: Matt Hardy, Hangman Page
Hardy says that Page was on fire tonight and says he will make a lot of money and he’s excited because Hardy will get 30 percent of that. He says he’s very proud of Page and happy he signed with him. Page reveals to Hardy he had an extra rolled up piece of paper in his jacket when he signed that and asks Hardy how good he read that contract. Hardy says he didn’t read it all and sent it straight to his lawyers.
Page asks the Jaguars “legal team” to bring the contract out and the Jaguars mascot brings it out and hands it to Hardy. Hardy says that it isn’t a talent contract but is actually for a match between Hardy and Page at Revolution and if Hardy loses Page gets 100 percent of Hardy’s earnings of the first quarter of 2021. Hardy calls Page a carny and says he may have pulled one over on him but he asks Page to put something on the line, too. Hardy suggest if he wins he gets all of Page’s earnings for the first quarter of 2021. Excalibur says they both have action figures coming out this year. Page agrees to the stipulation.
The Jaguar mascot attacks Page and reveals it to be Isaiah Kassidy and Hardy pays TH2 to beat the shit out of Page. The Beaver Boys run out to make the save and Brodie Jr. comes out and sends the rest of The Dark Order to chase off Kassidy and TH2. Page attempts the Buckshot Lariat on Hardy but he ducks and bails.

Sting comes out with his bat and Taz tells him that stepping in the ring with them is the worst thing he could have done. Taz says that without that bat Sting is done and reminds him of what they did to Darby.
Sting drops the bat and dares them to come after him. Sting throws his jacket at Cage and goes after him! Hook uses the bat to choke Sting but Sting backs him down only for Cage to kick him and Powerbomb Sting straight to hell. Well, there goes questioning whether Sting would be taking bumps anymore.

Backstage: Eddie Kingston
— All Elite Wrestling (@AEW) February 18, 2021
Backstage, Eddie Kingston says he requested the match tonight because there are three demons he has to deal with: Archer, Moxley and Fenix. He calls Fenix a waste of space and says he never wanted him in their family. “Moxley you are the demon I need to get rid of the most,” Kingston says.” I can’t get rid of you with drinking, with pills, with women… I have to get rid of you by beating you… old friend.”
Segment: Kenny Omega, Don Callis, Michael Nakazawa
— All Elite Wrestling (@AEW) February 18, 2021
Earlier today, Kenny Omega is reading to kids at a school. Jim Ross literally refers to Omega as the WWE Champion. Omega is reading snippets from The Young Bucks’ book and one of the kids asks if they are in love and Omega laughs. The part he reads is the part where they talk about the rivalry between Omega and Jericho at the Tokyo Dome and how business went up because of him. He starts to leave and the kids want to play with him but he says he is too busy and they can play with Nakazawa instead. The kids say they hate Nakazawa and one kicks him in the balls and the rest of the kids start stomping on him.
