Ahead of his Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch against Kenny Omega at Revolution, Jon Moxley kicked off Wednesday’s show with a match against “The Hollywood Hunk” Ryan Nemeth.
A brutal knife’s edge chop, joint manipulation and a picture-perfect Paradigm Shift earned Moxley the quick win.
After the match, Mox addressed the AEW fans, asking them what images come to mind when they think of “Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch.” He referred to himself as an addict, almost seething as he said battling and living close to the flame is a feeling he cannot get enough of.
“It’s too attractive. It pulls me in. I can’t resist it,” he said, even if it is a trap by Omega and his boys. “You will know, when it’s all said and done, I gave you everything I had,” he said in reference to those who have been behind him from the start.
