AEW have confirmed that Full Gear will take place on Saturday, November 13th.
The announcement came during All Out, and confirmed that the show has been moved back from its original date of November 6th. The event had been scheduled to take place in St. Louis, Missouri but this is seemingly no longer locked in.
Speaking during the post-All Out media scrum, Tony Khan explained that show was moved so it wouldn’t clash with a UFC event scheduled for the same night. The AEW President said that the reshuffle would allow both AEW and his friend UFC boss Dana White to be successful.
”I really would prefer not to compete head-to-head with, honestly, knocking over for one thing, but also, Dana is a really good friend of mine and I don’t really see any point of taking money off of each other’s plate. He’s got a big pay-per-view that day and I was actually able to, when you find out what we’ve got set up, it’s a logistically big change, but I think in the end, it probably is going to work out better for us and work out better for them. Then, my friend and I both get to do our shows on back-to-back weekends and be very happy.”
However, Khan suggested that the show was no longer a lock for St Louis, although an episode of Rampage will take place in the city the night before.
“I can’t get into the destination [of Full Gear], but I will say that we will still be in St. Louis for Friday night Rampage, which is the night before.”
The first ever Full Gear was headlined by a Lights Out Unsanctioned Match between Jon Moxley and Kenny Omega. The 2020 edition of the show was main evented by Jon Moxley defending the AEW World Championship against Eddie Kingston.
AEW All Out was one for the history books as it featured the in-ring return of CM Punk as well as the AEW debuts of Bryan Danielson, Ruby Soho and Adam Cole. While Japanese legend Minoru Suzuki also appeared on the show confronting Jon Moxley.
