All Elite Wrestling makes its return to pay-per-view on Saturday, Nov. 7, with the 2020 edition of AEW Full Gear. The card is loaded with intriguing matches, with many of the bouts feeling like tossups and serious potential for some major title changes.
The event, which airs on traditional PPV ($59.99) and will also stream on BR/Live ($49.99), kicks off at 8 p.m. ET following a pre-show at 7 p.m. The action goes down from Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida, which has become the standard home of AEW during the era of the COVID-19 pandemic. A limited number of fans will be in attendance at the venue.
Read on below to see the complete card for AEW Full Gear along with predictions for every match on the slate.
AEW Full Gear card, predictions
AEW World Championship — Jon Moxley (c) vs. Eddie Kingston (I Quit match): Kingston in a major PPV main event is a dream come true for many wrestling fans, and this pairing in a match where you must force the other to quit is going to produce some stunning levels of brutality. That said, it’s hard to imagine AEW putting the world title on Kingston, and it’s a little easier for someone more on the heel side of things to lose a match by saying “I quit.” Pick: Jon Moxley retains the title
AEW Tag Team Championship — FTR (c) vs. The Young Bucks: A key part of this story involves the Bucks being prevented from challenging for the tag titles again if they lose. AEW has already gone that route with Cody losing his world title match under the same stipulation, so it’s hard to imagine the promotion doing the same thing with the Bucks. Expect a great match and a Young Bucks victory. Pick: The Young Bucks win the titles
AEW TNT Championship — Cody (c) vs. Darby Allin: This is one of the tougher matches to call on the card. Allin vs. Cody has been a solid rivalry over the past year, but Allin needs to win to uphold its status as a rivalry where the two are on even footing. But, Cody has already lost the title once and quickly regained it. Does it make sense for him to drop the belt again? I think it’s time to see AEW put a belt around a rising star who “went big” under their watch, finally giving him a win over the established star in the process. Pick: Darby Allin wins the title
AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament Finals — Kenny Omega vs. “Hangman” Adam Page: The winner of this tournament final match gets a future world title shot. Either man would be a solid challenger for Moxley, but Page feels like he needs another year before a title run while Omega is a good choice for a big program with the champion. Pick: Kenny Omega wins
AEW Women’s Championship — Hikaru Shida (c) vs. Nyla Rose: AEW’s struggles with the women’s division show with falling back into old patterns, but Shida’s run should probably come to a close while letting the roster chase the new monster heel champion. Pick: Nyla Rose wins the title
Chris Jericho vs. MJF: MJF will be allowed to join The Inner Circle with a victory, and as with other stipulations on this card, that sets up the expected direction for the match. The story of MJF gaining access to Jericho’s group by beating him sets up such good interaction moving forward that it’s hard to imagine that not being the direction AEW goes. Pick: MJF wins
Matt Hardy vs. Sammy Guevara (Elite Deletion match): The All Out match between these two is one of the low points of AEW’s short time in existence. Hopefully things work out better for both in this match, but it makes the most sense for Hardy to pick up the win for a cleaner wrap to their storyline. Pick: Matt Hardy wins
Orange Cassidy vs. John Silver: Silver is a great hand, and it’s nice to see him get featured spots on TV, but Cassidy is the star here and this is his match to lose. Pick: Orange Cassidy wins
NWA Women’s World Championship — Serena Deeb (c) vs. Allysin Kay (Buy-In pre-show): The showcasing of the NWA women’s world championship on AEW television continues. Deeb, an AEW contracted-talent, recently won the title from Thunder Rosa and has already made a successful defense on an episode of Dynamite. She’ll face a formidable foe here in the talented Kay, but no reason to dethrone Deeb just yet. Pick: Serena Deeb retains the title
