With AEW All Out 2020 in the books, we take an early look at AEW Full Gear 2020 on November 7 and how that match card could shape up.
Last Saturday at AEW All Out, we saw several unforgettable moments during a pay-per-view that ultimately struggled to live up to the expectations set by AEW’s previous pay-per-view events. Now, with that event officially in the rear view mirror, we look forward to AEW Full Gear 2020 on November 7 and exactly how that card could shape up in a few short months.
AEW All Out had some truly spectacular moments, as NWA World Women’s Champion Thunder Rosa challenged Hikaru Shida for the AEW Women’s World Championship in what would ultimately become the clear Match of the Night. We also saw a very different women’s match, as Big Swole and Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. fought “Tooth and Nail” to end their bitter rivalry in a unique contest that took place in Baker’s dental office.
In the tag team realm, we saw Private Party pick up a win over The Dark Order’s Alex Reynolds and John Silver during The Buy-In. Later in the night, The Young Bucks picked up an important victory over Jurassic Express in one of the more fun matches all night.
With the AEW World Tag Team Titles on the line, we saw relative newcomers FTR teach defending champions Kenny Omega and Hangman Page to “Fear the Revelation.” While the match had some lulls throughout, it was ultimately a solid contest with very crucial moments at the end both for the new champions and the now fractured duo of Omega and Page.
We saw the latest iteration of the Casino Battle Royale, as 21-men fought to earn a shot at the AEW World Championship. Matt Sydal, despite one scary mistake, had a great debut in the match. Ultimately it was Lance Archer who took the win, but we can expect to hear from Eddie Kingston soon as he never officially went over the top rope before losing that match.
Speaking of scary moments, Matt Hardy took on Sammy Guevara in a Broken Rules Match. After a controversial moment seemed to legitimately knock Hardy out cold with a concussion, the match was restarted and ultimately Hardy took the win. While Tony Khan is insisting Hardy is alright and he is scheduled to appear this week on AEW Dynamite, it’s unclear when he’ll be ready to return to in-ring competition.
The Dark Order continued their rivalry with the ragtag representatives of former TNT Champion Cody, while Orange Cassidy finally did away with Chris Jericho in their Mimosa Mayhem Match by sending him flying into a vat of mimosa. Finally, the night’s main event saw MJF unsuccessfully challenge Jon Moxley for the AEW World Championship despite several advantages established before and during that match.
We’ve got just under two months to go before we arrive at AEW Full Gear 2020. While the inaugural AEW Full Gear back in 2019 only had eight matches (one during The Buy-In), AEW All Out 2020 ended up with a packed 11-match card (two during The Buy-In). With all of that in mind, here’s a look at what we might see at AEW Full Gear 2020.
