The AEW locker room is riding high after the company’s Full Gear pay-per-view event, which took place on November 13. The roster’s positive outlook stands in stark contrast to reports coming out the WWE camp over the past year. Several of their recently-released superstars have publicly aired their gripes with the organization.

A backstage source told Andrew Zarian of The Mat Men podcast that the outlook in AEW was positive among the wrestlers. They believe that the company is treating their stars right and investing in the proper talents. There’s not a sniff of dissention.

“Morale is very high with the locker room. The investment AEW has made in its future stars is paying dividends.”

AEW paid off their longest-term storyline, as Hangman Adam Page defeated Kenny Omega in an emotional bout to win the AEW World title. MJF and Darby Allin showcased the future of the company in the opening match. CM Punk and Eddie Kingston’s blood feud came to a head.


Fans were generally positive about the show as well. The future of AEW is bright if they can stay on the track that’s made them successful thus far. Keeping the talent happy and thriving creatively should remain first on their list of priorities.

We’re still waiting on news about the PPV buyrate. AEW’s previous pay-per-view, All Out, recorded a strong 200,000 buys. Tony Khan will be thrilled if he comes near that number with consecutive shows.

What did you think of Full Gear? Did it reach 200,000 buys? Let us know in the comments!
