AEW returns to pay-per-view on Saturday with Full Gear coming live from the Target Center in Minneapolis. 10 matches are on the card, headlined by an AEW World Championship bout between Kenny Omega and “Hangman” Adam Page. The main show will begin at 8 p.m. ET on Bleacher Report.
This is the fourth PPV on the AEW calendar in 2021. The last event was All Out in September, in Chicago. It marked CM Punk’s return to wrestling action, where he defeated Darby Allin by pinfall. The main event for the evening saw Omega defeat Christian Cage via pinfall.
We’ll be tracking the results for Full Gear here. The main event will likely get going sometime around 10:30 or 11 p.m.
AEW World Championship - “Hangman” Adam Page defeats Kenny Omega (c) via pinfall
ANNNNNDDDDD NEEEEEEWWWWW AEW WORLD CHAMPION!
This main even lived up to all of the hype and had twists, turns, high-spots, and drama. And in the end, Hangman Page stands on top of the mountain as the new champ.
Page is the first AEW Champion to not hold a world title in any other major company, so this is an important milestone in AEW creating a top guy of their own.
Hey look, Jay Lethal is All Elite! And he’s challenging Sammy Guevara for the TNT Championship this Wednesday!
Inner Circle defeat Men of the Year (Minneapolis Street Fight) via pinfall
With a nod to the late Eddie Guerrero, a frogsplash allowed Chris Jericho and the Inner Circle to come out victorious in the Minneapolis Street Fight.
CM Punk defeats Eddie Kingston via pinfall
“What a God d*** fistfight,” is what Jim Ross said when this one ended. These two veterans simply beat the hell out of each other for a little over 10 minutes. With a bloodied face, Punk hit his signature GTS to put Kingston down for the three-count.
AEW Women’s World Championship - Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. (c) defeats Tay Conti via pinfall
By the skin of her teeth, Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. managed to retain her title against Tay Conti in a hard hitting match. The numbers game with Jamie Hayter and Rebel at ringside was too much for Conti to overcome.
Cody Rhodes and Pac defeat Malakai Black and Andrade El Idolo via pinfall
With one Black Arrow, Pac and Rhodes triumphed in this tag match.
Afterwards, FTR came out and laid waste to the babyfaces. We’ll be sure to get a tag team match soon.
Christian Cage and Jurassic Express defeat Superkliq via pinfall (Falls Count Anywhere)
This was a chaotic brawl that had plenty of table spots, thumbtacks, balcony jumps, and more.
With everyone else laid out, the match ended with Jungle Boy putting one of the Young Bucks’ head into a steel chair and “Pillmanizing” him with a conchairto.
These six have feuded for the better part of three months, so that should be the conclusive ending to this rivalry.
AEW World Championship Eliminator Tournament Final - Bryan Danielson defeats Miro via submission
We have a new No. 1 contender in AEW. Bryan Danielson survived a hard-fought matchup against Miro in the finals of the AEW Eliminator Tournament. The American Dragon hit a DDT of the top rope and put Miro in a submission for the win.
Danielson is now in line for a shot at the AEW World Championship in the future. Could we see a rematch between him and Kenny Omega?
AEW World Tag Team Championship - The Lucha Brothers (c) defeat FTR via pinfall
In our first title match of the night, the Lucha Brothers successfully defended their belts against FTR.
MJF defeats Darby Allin via pinfall
The first match of the main Full Gear card saw MJF beat Darby Allin in a hell of an opener. The two guys who have billed as the future of AEW got roughly 30 minutes to put on a show and they did just that.
The match ended when MJF brought one of Darby’s skateboards in the ring and dared Allin to hit him with it. The ref proceeded to confiscate the skateboard, allowing for MJF to pull out what appeared to be brass knuckles out of his trunks and knock Darby out cold. He then rolled him up for the 1-2-3.
Hikaru Shida and Thunder Rosa defeat Nyla Rose and Jamie Hayter via pinfall
Shida and Rosa were able to pick up a victory in tag team action on the ‘Buy In’. Shida was able to successfully counter a Rose powerbomb attempt into a rollup for the win.
All four of these women are in the quarterfinals of the TBS Championship Tournament with Shida set to face Rose and Hayter set to face Rosa.
