Fan footage shows crowd booed and reacted angrily to anticlimactic ending to AEW Revolution 2021. The show was closed by Kenny Omega vs Jon Moxley.
A show is always judged by the act that closed it, which is why the ending is so important. AEW seemed to have that in the bag with Kenny Omega vs Jon Moxley for the AEW World Championship in an exploding barbed wire death match as their main event at AEW Revolution.
Two of the company’s biggest stars? Check. High stakes? Check. Crazy stipulation? Check. Months of storybuilding and fan investment? Check. Nothing could go wrong and yet, despite having such an amazing match, everything did go wrong.

The match was supposed to end with the ring exploding while Eddie Kingston shielded Moxley. What fans got instead, was an embaraasing boom and sparklers, while Kingston fainted like he had been hit with a grenade. Fans were naturally upset and vocally let their dissapointment known.
AEW seems to have masked the boos on their PPV stream. However, fan footage has revealed exactly how the crowd in attendance reacted to the failure.

Tony Khan later said that they would turn their dissapointing ending into a storyline. However, he wouldn’t admit that there was a misfire. Though he did all but confirm that Moxley blaming the dud on Omega was what they were going to go with.
Tony Khan says they are uploading the video of Moxley saying Omega can’t build a ring worth a sh*t to YT. Says he’s not sure what people expected outside actually blowing guys up. Omega building a dud is the story. Khan didn’t say or imply there was a misfire. ^JN
