AEW Full Gear was a night of memorable moments and terrific matches from start to finish. It started off with the tremendous singles match between MJF and Darby Allin. The show concluded with Adam Page vs Kenny Omega for AEW World Championship, in a highly anticipated match.
In a culmination of a multi-year-long storyline, Adam Page finally defeated Kenny Omega to win the AEW World Championship – a promise he had made years prior. This certainly made fans really happy and the results speak for themselves.
According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, AEW Full Gear was played in theaters all over the United States. It was revealed that the pay-per-view grossed $150,000. This was more than AEW All Out but on a less impressive scale. This is because All Out did $120,000 in 140 theaters or $857 per screen or an average of 34 per theater. Full Gear was in 314 theaters or $478 per screen or an average of 19 per theater.
Despite that, the pay-per-view did better than WWE SummerSlam, which managed $125,000 in 400 theaters, or $313 per screen and an average of 13 per theater. It remains to be seen whether AEW Revolution next year will manage to do better business than AEW Full Gear, which was the second-most bought pay-per-view in the company’s history.
