AEW Full Gear 2022 saw an incredible amount of action in the ring with multiple titles on the line as well as several grudge matches. However, it appears that not all the fighting took place in the confines of the squared circle.
During the AEW World Tag Team Championship match between The Acclaimed and Swerve In Our Glory, a section of the audience was distracted and began chanting “A**hole” for reasons that were unknown at the time.
However, footage has now emerged online showing that a fight was taking place in the crowd that had to be broken up by security. Kyle Stevens of the Queen’s Gazette posted a video of the altercation which you can see below.

Swerve In Our Glory at AEW Full Gear
While the fight went on in the crowd, the action in the ring was no less chaotic as Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland couldn’t stay on the same page. While Swerve was determined to use weapons to take out the champions, Keith Lee was having none of it.
At one stage, Strickland handed Lee a pair of plyers and ordered him to use them on Anthony Bowens. However, despite the urging of his partner, Lee threw the weapon to the floor. At this Strickland launched a huge slap on his partner, only for Lee to help Bowens to his feet and leave the ring.
With the bout having effectively become a Two-On-One Handicap match, Bowens tagged in Max Caster and the pair hit Strickland with a Hanging Slam for the pinfall victory.
While the Tag Team Championships remained in the hands of the champions, there were several title changes elsewhere on AEW Full Gear. Jamie Hayer overcame Toni Storm to become the Interim AEW Women’s Champion, Samoa Joe emerged victorious from the TNT Championship Triple Threat bout, and, with a surprising assist from William Regal, MJF was able to defeat Jon Moxley to become the AEW World Champion.
