AEW Revolution: Kenny Omega Reveals Exploding Barbed Wire Match Rules and Details

AEW Revolution is right around the corner, and one of the biggest and most interesting matches on the card is the exploding barbed wire match between Kenny Omega and Jon Moxley. Fans pretty much know what to expect from a barbed wire match, and we've seen Omega and Moxley take on hardcore stipulations before, but this one is taking it to a new level with explosives. Fans are obviously intrigued to see what Omega and Mox are cooking up, and now Omega has provided the rules and new details on what fans can expect.

Omega revealed a hand-drawn guide to how the match works, and it will feature 3 sides of the ring ropes covered in barbed wire. If someone (Mox according to that drawing) were to come into contact with that wire, it will trigger explosives on that side, though there are also 3 zones (called Triple Hell) that are rigged with explosives as well.

Thing is all of the explosives will trigger after 30 minutes, so even if someone avoids the other traps, something is going to go boom. You can check out the details below.
