AEW returns to PPV for the first time since its weekly show Dynamite started going live via Full Gear. The promotion will be heading to Baltimore on Saturday, November 9, 2019, for the show which will be headlined by an AEW World Title match. The main card will start at 8 PM EST with its kickoff show airing an hour earlier. Fans in the US and Canada can purchase the PPV via B/R Live, UK fans need to head to ITV Box Office, and fans in other countries will be able to purchase and watch the PPV via the Fite app.
Chris Jericho vs Cody Rhodes for the AEW Championship
At AEW's last PPV, the fledgling promotion crowned its first World Champion. Chris Jericho. Some fans have criticized the company for having Cody Rhodes be Y2J's first PPV challenger. However, if you head to AEW's site, you'll see that Cody's win/loss record makes him the right man for the job. Granted, he is also one of the people in charge of how his own win/loss record ends up looking, but this will still be a terrific match. It could also go either way, with Jericho having a big match coming up in New Japan at Wrestle Kingdom 14.
Jon Moxley vs Kenny Omega in an Unsanctioned Lights Out Match
Jon Moxley versus Kenny Omega was supposed to take place at All Out. However, due to Mox contracting MRSA, the match was postponed. That has turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Now that the match has been moved to Full Gear, it has allowed the pair to legitimately build to what will be a dream match for many fans. Moxley is unhappy about the match being unsanctioned as a win won't count towards his record. However, being allowed to do whatever he wants plays right into the former WWE Champion's wheelhouse.
The Young Bucks vs Proud-n-Powerful
This is another rivalry that has been bubbling up to boiling point ever since All Out. Sanatan & Oritz, previously known as LAX but now known as Proud-n-Powerful, attacked The Young Bucks and The Lucha Bros. Since then, the Bucks have been clashing with AEW's newest team as well as other members of The Inner Circle. Santana & Ortiz finally bit the bullet, claiming to be the best tag team in the world and challenging The Bucks to come and prove them wrong at Full Gear.
Hangman Page vs PAC
There's a feeling that Hangman Page was originally supposed to be AEW's guy. The wrestler the promotion it was going to hang his hat on. However, something just didn't seem to connect between Page and the fans. Since Dynamite launched and fans have been able to see Page every week, that has changed. He may have lost to PAC during Dynamite's debut episode, but a lot has changed between now and then. This match will be a lot more even and could even end with Page handing PAC his first loss in AEW.
Britt Baker vs Bea Priestley
AEW's women's division has been widely criticized since day one. That there aren't enough big names ready to go. In defense of AEW, it is still very early days. Also in AEW's defense, at Full Gear, the above match is going down. Although this isn't for the Women's Championship, Bea Priestley and Britt Baker are arguably the two most talented women in AEW. Chances are the winner of this one will be next in line for a shot at Riho's title.
Riho vs Emi Sakura for the AEW Women's Championship
Although the winner of Baker versus Priestley might well be the next in line for a Women's Title shot, the championship might be around someone else's waist by then. This Saturday, Emi Sakura will get her first shot at Riho's title. Sakura pinned the champ in tag team action this week on Dynamite. A repeat of that at Full Gear and we'll have the promotion's first title change.
SCU vs Lucha Bros vs Private Party
It could be argued that SCU got lucky in the final of AEW's Tag Title tournament. That's why The Lucha Bros will be very happy to be getting a second chance this weekend. However, with the addition of Private Party into the mix, Lucha Bros may need some luck of their own. Plus, the champions don't need to be pinned to lose the titles in this one.
Shawn Spears vs Joey Janela
While two of the bigger names currently signed to AEW, Shawn Spears and Joey Janela are both still trying to find their footing in the promotion. Both men have had big matches on some of AEW's biggest shows, but neither has registered that big win to put them on the map. That's why this one is so important as a win for either man could see them boosted to the next level.
