The order in which the matches will take place is not officially confirmed. In light of this, we’ll go through the match card without any certain order except the first match since it will be part of the kick-off show “Buy In”.
Britt Baker vs. Bea Priestley
This non-title women’s match will take place in the kick-off show and hasn’t got any build-up. However, the win will surely help one of the two women to come closer towards a title shot. Since Baker already had a championship opportunity, it’s more likely that Priestley will go over. Anyways, both women are among the best in the women’s division of AEW when it comes to their in-ring skills, and considering this, this match will be entertaining.
Shawn Spears (w/ Tully Blanchard) vs. Joey Janela
The build-up for this match in truth just began in this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite as Spears continued after his match against Brandon Cutler to attack his opponent and suddenly Janela came out to save Cutler. However, both men are known for their aggressive in-ring style and in the light of this, it will surely be brutal.
Adam “Hangman” Page vs. Pac
This match is the third fight during their feud and will be used as the final beating to end the rivalry. Both men are at the moment quite over and just a few wins away from the main event. So, this match could be really indicatory. Besides, Pac’s Brutalizer currently gets represented as extremely strong. It would be no surprise if he forces Page to tap out with the aid of that submission move. Anyways, both men already proved that they can work great matches together and this match will also surely not disappoint.
AEW Tag Team Champions SCU vs. The Lucha Bros vs. The Private Party
The Private Party came into this match since they were in this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite able to beat the Dark Order. With that win, they earned the third place in the Tag Team Tournament and a spot in this match. So, we have the three best teams of the Tag Team Tournament and due to that, it promises to be an outstanding match. Especially because of the high-flying abilities of the Lucha Bros and the Private Party, this fight will be entertaining. However, SCU are just for a bit more than a week champions and considering this a title change would be really senseless.
AEW Women’s World Champion Riho vs. Emi Sakura
The build-up for this match started in this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite as Sakura pinned Riho in a tag team match. It’s really disappointing that the match for the AEW Women’s World Championship hasn’t had a real build-up. Anyways, due to that, Sakura doesn’t look dangerous at all and in light of this, Riho will likely defend her title to continue her title run.
“Proud-n-Powerful” Santana and Ortiz vs. The Young Bucks
Santana and Ortiz worked within the last weeks perfect as heels with their attack on the “Rock ‘n’ Roll Express” and the Young Bucks. Besides they are a part of the Inner Circle and so we have a perfect face-heel-match. Besides, all four men have the in-ring abilities to show a great match and that’s exactly what we’ll get. It’s hard to predict who’ll get over since the Young Bucks are the bigger team, but Santana and Ortiz looked very strong within the last weeks.
AEW World Champion Chris Jericho vs. Cody
This match promises to be great to watch. Both men can work with the crowd, are great showmen and have the skills to blow off the rooftop. Besides, this match has got a time limit of 60 minutes. So, they’ll have plenty of time to show us a great match.
The most interesting about this match is that Cody announced that if he isn’t able to defeat Jericho, he will never challenge for the AEW Championship again. This would be absolutely shocking and considering this, I expect that there will be no clean finishing. Maybe we’ll see a DQ-victory for one of the two superstars or a no-contest finish. Anyways, it’s pretty likely that Jake Hager will get involved in any way.
Kenny Omega vs. Jon Moxley in a Lights Out Match
Usually, you would expect the match for the main title as the final fight of a PPV, but in this case it’s more likely that this clash will be the last one since it’s a Light Out Match what means that it doesn’t count in the win-loss rate of the two superstars and besides there will be no DQ, count-out or stuff like that. Due to that, this match will be extremely brutal, maybe the most extreme match we have seen in a while in a pro wrestling ring. Since this territory belongs more to Moxley, it’s more likely that he’ll go over. However, it’s not that much about the question who wins this match more about how extreme it will be.
Except for the two women’s matches, we had for every single match a solid and good build-up. Full Gear is the first PPV since the start of the weekly episodes of AEW Dynamite and so, we have not just random matches, but real feuds. Considering this, Full Gear has the potential to be amazing and surely won’t disappoint us.
