Welcome to Ringside News’ live coverage of AEW Full Gear.

Tonight marks the first official PPV of the AEW Dynamite era, and Full Gear features seven matches and a Buy-In Show. The main event tonight is the AEW World Title match between Chris Jericho and Cody. This is, by a massive distance, the most interesting match of the night because it’s the match that has received the most TV time and the most story development. Cody says he won’t challenge for the AEW World Title ever again if he loses, and, with the added wrinkle of the judges, this is going to be fascinating and shape AEW for some time to come.

The other big match tonight is the unsanctioned bout between Kenny Omega and Jon Moxley. Now, this is sure to be a barn burner and something akin to a car wreck, but it’s hard not to think AEW is overusing the unsanctioned gimmick. It seems like every other show we’ve got one of these matches, when really they should be used incredibly infrequently to convey how big of a deal it is. Regardless, expect fireworks here.

The AEW Women’s Champion, Riho, will defend her title against Emi Sakura tonight in a match that should be fun. Honestly, there isn’t much else to say about this one because the extent of story heading into tonight is that Emi pinned Riho in a tag match on Wednesday. That’s it.


Which brings us to the rest of the card, SCU faces Private Party and Lucha Bros in their first defense of the AEW Tag Team Championships; this match is sure to be balls-to-the-walls action with zero rules or logic. And that goes for The Young Buck Vs. Santana & Ortiz as well. Sure, AEW’s tag matches are fun but a shred of logic and selling would go a very long way. Then we have “Hangman” Adam Page Vs. PAC, Joey Janela Vs. Shawn Spears, and Bea Priestly Vs. Britt Baker on the Buy-In Show.

I’m sounding pretty down on this PPV but that’s just because the majority of matches haven’t an ounce of story built into them and there’s no excuse for that when AEW’s had four weeks of TV to build feuds. That said, I fully expect this show to be fun as all hell when it comes to the in-ring product. So be sure to follow us on Instagram and Twitter, or by downloading the Ringside News app, and enjoy the show!

The Buy-In

The Full Gear pre-show begins and we go right to a video package for The Young Bucks Vs. Santana & Ortiz match tonight. The Bucks say they need to win this match because they no longer know if they are the best tag team in the world. Santana and Ortiz say they need to win because they’re hungry and they need to assert themselves as the best. Jim Ross predicts Santana & Ortiz will win because eventually the best are always dethroned.

Next we get a video for Jon Moxley Vs. Kenny Omega. They talk about Moxley’s injury and his rehabilitation. Omega meanwhile went back to Japan to rekindle his love of wrestling. We see footage of Moxley visiting the CZW building, where he had most of his indie matches. Omega visits Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, where he had many of his greatest matches.

Cody challenging Chris Jericho for the AEW World Title is the next video package. The people in the video talk-up Jericho’s historic run in the business and why he’s the man, while also discussing how much the fans love Cody and what he represents moving forward. JR says this is Cody’s big chance to step out from his father’s shadow and cement himself as a big player in the industry.

We go live to the arena and on commentary we have Goldenboy, Taz, and Excalibur. The ramp runs all the way to the ring, like old WCW or some TNA shows. It’s time for our first match of the evening.

Winner: Dr. Britt Baker

After the match and Britt leaves, we get some music and candles burning in the screen. The lights go out and Awesome Kong is on the stage with Brandi Rhodes. Kong stomps to the ring and drops Bea with a spinning back fist Kong pulls out a knife, then hands it to Rhodes, before hitting an implant buster. Brandi hands the knife back to Kong, then pulls a part of Bea’s hair and Kong cuts it off. Kong smells the hair before leaving with Brandi.

And that’s it for The Buy-In. AEW Full Gear begins now!

The fans chant “a$$hole” at MFJ as he screams at Cody before fixing his scarf and leaving. At the top of the ramp, a fan throws his drink over MFJ!

We get a video package for the main event bewteen Jon Moxley and Kenny Omega. They reference WWE multiple times in the video and that’s something AEW needs to stop doing.

Omega comes out first, then Moxley is out second and he comes through the crowd – because he got attacked on the ramp a few weeks ago. Unsanctioned matches make zero sense IMO; there’s still a referee, it’s on TV, etc. Regardless, let the chaos begin.

Omega looks for the One-Winged Angel but Moxley climbs down. Omega looks for the V-Trigger but Moxley blocks it and suplexes Omega off the stage onto the mass of barber wire!

Officials and some wrestlers come out and pull both men free but you can see the wire sticking in their skin. The match isn’t over though, as Moxley punches the officials.

Jon lifts Omega and looks for a piledriver but Kenny counters with a back body drop on the wood! Kenny hits V-Trigger against the turnbuckles, then looks for the One-Winged Angel on the wood but Moxley jumps off and looks for Paradigm Shift…only for Kenny to reverse and hit Paradigm shift but Moxley kicks out!

Kenny climbs to the top rope and dives for a phoenix splash but Moxley moves! Moxley crawls over and makes the pin…but Omega kicks out! Jon lifts Omega and looks for Paradigm Shift again, and this time he hits an elevated one and wins!

Winner: Jon Moxley

Moxley talks into the camera and gives the fingers after the match. The Bucks come down to check on Kenny Omega. Moxley sits in the corner and kisses his bat.

And that’s it for AEW Full Gear. It was a damn fine show. Let us know what you thought in the comments and be sure to come back tomorrow for more wrasslin’ news! Until then, safe travels!
