Friday Night Get-Down: March 5, 2021

TONIGHT!  SmackDown features the road to Fastlane, which is a show that exists because they need a dress rehearsal for putting WrestleMania on Peacock, or something.  I guess.

TOMORROW!  AEW presents a special episode of Dark, as they usually do the night before a PPV.  Your top matches are the Sydal Brothers against Chaos Project and Dustin/Marshall vs Avalon/Bononi.  I’ll have the rundown of that show, along with my How I’d Book It for Revolution.

SUNDAY!  AEW presents Revolution!!  Kenny Omega dies for his art!  Two big surprise names that definitely won’t be seen as letdowns by a fanbase working themselves into a shoot!  A six-way ladder match, Sting’s first match in 6 years, and a Tag Team Rumble!

Also — Hikaru Shida defends the Women’s Title against Ryo Mizunami.  Why is this more than just a tournament reward title match?  AEW explains:

All right, folks, we went over the rules.  I expect a good clean thread; obey the mod’s instructions at all times.  Now, touch gloves, go to your keyboards, and come out posting.
