NWA World Women's Championship Match: Serena Deeb vs. Allysin Kay

2 OF 8

    Allysin Kay made her debut inside an AEW ring Saturday night on the Buy-In, challenging Serena Deeb for the NWA World Women’s Championship in the first bout of the night.

    Sportsmanlike chain wrestling started before Kay showed some aggression, to which Deeb answered with a neckbreaker in the ropes. A quick pinning combination earned the champion a quick two count. She followed up with an octopus submission but Kay powered out and downed Deeb for a near-fall.

    Deeb delivered another neckbreaker for another two-count and Kay answered with an Alabama Slam for her own close call. Kay delivered her AK-47 finisher but Deeb smartly rolled to the floor, avoiding defeat. The champion recovered and delivered a dragon screw leg whip in the ropes.

    She applied the Serenity Lock (think Konan’s “Tequila Sunrise”) for the submission win.

    After the match, Thunder Rosa returned and came face-to-face with the woman who defeated her for the gold. 



    Deeb defeated Kay






    This was a solid wrestling match between two experienced competitors, but imagine how much better it could have been if there was a reason to care about their encounter. What if there was a story for fans to invest in? Even the slightest could have upped the intensity and sense of urgency.

    As it was, there was never any real expectation that Deeb would lose the title, limiting the extent to which the match was ever really going to grip the audience.

    With that said, both Deeb and Kay looked great, working with a smoothness that the AEW women’s division is not always known for. Kay would be an incredible asset to the division and really should not leave Jacksonville without a contract offer.

    The return of Thunder Rosa sets up a showdown with Deeb that could seriously up the quality of the women’s division, even if it would be nice to see them compete over the title with the company’s own initials attached.

World Title Eliminator Finals: Hangman Page vs. Kenny Omega

3 OF 8

    The finals of the World Title Eliminator kicked off the main portion of the Full Gear pay-per-view as former tag team champions Kenny Omega and Jon Moxley waged war. 

    Impact Wrestling official Don Callis joined Jim Ross, Excalibur and Tony Schiavone on commentary for the match, promoting his familial bond with Omega, who made another exaggerated entrance. Page entered to a pop rivaling his former partner, excitement for the match at a fever pitch.

    A trade of chops gave way to Page outwrestling Omega early, including a superplex for a near-fall. Omega answered with a series of chops and a moonsault off the guardrail that stunned his opponent. 

    Back in the ring, Omega uncharacteristically botched a middle-rope moonsault but still landed one a second later. Page recovered and delivered a springboard clothesline that turned Omega inside out on the ring apron. Hangman tried for a plancha but Omega moved and Kenny followed with a baseball slide. 

    Omega delivered a tope, wiping Page out on the floor. Back in, Page escaped consecutive snapdragon attempts but ate a big V-Trigger on the ramp. Page tried for the Deadeye but Omega escaped. He did not dodge a powerbomb attempt, though, The Cleaner’s head bouncing off the ramp.

    An exchange of strikes gave way to Page rocking Omega with a rolling elbow. The de facto heel shook it off and delivered a Tiger Drive for a near-fall. 

    The pace quickened. Omega delivered a snapdragon and Page answered with a discus clothesline. The Deadshot folded Omega up but he narrowly avoided defeat, shooting his left shoulder off the mat at two. Page earned another dramatic near-fall, countering a sunset flip into a rollup for two.

    Omega delivered a dragonscrew in the ropes. When Page tried for the Buckshot Lariat, Omega delivered consecutive V-Triggers. A delayed One-Winged Angel followed and Omega earned the hard-fought victory.



    Omega defeated Page to win the World Title Eliminator






    Imagine having to follow this.

    Omega and Page tore the house down with a hell of a match, a physical encounter befitting the history between the competitors involved. There were the counters and reversals you expect from former partners who watched each other work for months on end but in the end, it was the alertness of Omega that allowed him to deliver the last-gasp dragonscrew leg whip and ride it to victory.

    Omega winning puts him in line for a future championship opportunity and given the rich history between him and Jon Moxley, there may be no more appropriate opponent for him.

    The question is where Page goes from here. Will the disappointment drive him into a deeper, darker funk or motivate him to make the changes necessary to reach the next level?

    His story remains one of the most interesting in all of AEW.

Orange Cassidy vs. John Silver

4 OF 8

    Orange Cassidy started his showdown with The Dark Order’s John Silver with his normal shenanigans but found out quickly that “4” was not a competitor to mess with. The powerhouse of The Dark Order tossed Freshly Squeezed around the ring, then countered a DDT attempt by squatting down and turning it into a suplex.

    Silver dominated the match until Cassidy sent him into the turnbuckles, delivered a crossbody and followed up with a big DDT for a near-fall.

    Silver responded with a gorilla press into the ropes and big kick. Cassidy recovered and caught his opponent with a Michinoku Driver for a close two. Silver fought out of a Beach Break attempt and delivered consecutive kicks to the chest that only served to fire Cassidy up.

    Freshly Squeezed missed an Orange Punch but scored the Stundog Millionaire. He tried for the punch again but Silver executed a perfect release airplane spin for two. 

    Silver wasted just a moment too much mimicking Mr. Brodie Lee, missed the discus clothesline and fell prey to the Orange Punch. Cassidy followed with Beach Break for the win.



    Cassidy defeated Silver






    This was a solid if unspectacular match that continued Cassidy’s breakout year while showcasing the hidden gem that is Silver.

    The hilarious pitbull powerhouse of The Dark Order, he proved he cannot entertain on Being The Elite, but can also work in a big pay-per-view spot. This was a great opportunity for him and he performed up to the moment.

    The match had the unenviable task of following one of AEW’s best matches of the year, but it still managed to do what it set out to and the result was a success.

TNT Championship Match: Darby Allin vs. Cody Rhodes

5 OF 8

    The TNT Championship was up for grabs in the night’s third match as cody rhodes defended against a familiar foe, the enigmatic antihero of AEW, Darby Allin.

    Allin outwrestled Cody, frustrating him early and sending the TNT Champion scurrying to the sanctuary of the floor and under the tutelage. Cody responded favorably, trapping Darby in a hammerlock and slamming him onto the entrance ramp, leaving the challenger writhing in pain.

    The champion worked over the arm, refusing to give up wrist control at one point and catching him with an armbar. The resilient Allin fought through the pain but only managed to extend his suffering as Rhodes delivered a slam from the ropes, the challenger landing on his own arm.

    Allin mounted a comeback as Rhodes departed from the gameplan set forth by head coach Arn Anderson. The champion recovered, though, and delivered the Cross Rhodes from the top rope. Allin’s arm was under the rope, though, preventing the loss.

    The arrogance of Rhodes came into play late as he talked trash, then playfully kicked away at his head. He teased using the weight belt as a weapon but the momentary distraction allowed Allin to fight his way back into the match.

    The Last Supper gave way to the float over stunner, which preceded the Coffin Drop. All of which still only scored Allin a two-count.

    A series of rollups moments later gave way to Allin finally pinning Rhodes’s shoulders to the mat for the win and title.

    After a few tense moments, Rhodes knelt down and presented Allin the title in a show of respect. The post-match celebration was short-lived as Team Taz hit the ring, attacking Rhodes and Allin. They laid out the competitors before Ricky Starks and Brian Cage teased a moment of dissension, each reaching for the TNT Championship.

    The beating culminated in Cage throwing Allin through a set piece, then prepared to break his arm in a car door. Will Hobbs made the save, though, answering Taz’s invite to join the team with a resounding “no!”



    Allin defeated Rhodes to win the TNT Championship






    In the end, it was Rhodes’ hubris that proved his downfall.

    Cody allowed Allin to stick around and stick around, to the point that he left an opening for the underdog to exploit en route to victory. The match was smartly wrestled, told a helluva of story and steadily built sympathy for Allin. To the point that his win was preferred over, arguably, the most popular wrestler in the company.

    The post-match antics all-but guarantee that Allin’s feud with Team Taz will continue. Considering how many times we have already seen those involved do battle, time and the resulting developments of those matches will determine whether a continuation was worthwhile.

AEW Women's Championship Match: Hikaru Shida vs. Nyla Rose

6 OF 8

    Hikaru Shida and Nyla Rose renewed their rivalry over the AEW Women’s Championship, the former erupting with an onslaught from the opening bell. As the action spilled to the floor, Vickie Guerrero delivered a cheap shot that allowed Rose to seize control and target the right leg, foot and ankle of Shida.

    Rose applied a half Boston Crab, driving her own weight into the lower back of her opponent while torquing on the injured limb of the champion.

    Shida showed tremendous fortitude, fighting from underneath and delivering a big suplex. Rose, though, grounded ger smaller opponent. Hanging her over the top rope, Rose leaped from the top rope and caught Shida with a knee to the head, continuing her utter dominance.

    Shida fought back with a big boot, then a dropkick onto the entrance ramp. A second, this one inside the ring, earned a two-count.

    The champion showed seemingly inexplicable power as she backdropped out of a powerbomb attempt. Nursing the knee injury, she delivered an avalanche falcon arrow from the top rope. After a two-count, Shida picked Rose up. She set up for a Shining Wizard but Guerrero provided a distraction.

    Shida shoved Rose into Vickie at ringside and delivered another falcon arrow in the ring for another two.  A few knee strikes ultimately earned the win as Excalibur put her over as one of the best strikers in the company.

    After the match, Guerrero berated Rose, then slapped her. Guerrero exited, leaving Rose to digest everything had just happened.



    Shida defeated Rose to retain






    The effort was there but this was a sometimes-ugly match that failed to live up to the level of their previous encounter from Double or Nothing this past May. Sloppy late-match spots and sequences hurt the overall quality of this one, as did the storytelling.

    We’re supposed to care that The Vicious Vixens are on the outs after the outcome when so little time has been spent on establishing them as a presence on AEW Dynamite to begin with? Why? Because Guerrero is doing the same yelling, berating shtick she did in WWE?

    And as great as Shida has been more than once during this reign, her character is so undefined that it oftentimes is difficult to care about her beyond the fact that she’s really, really good. 

    Something that can be said about a large portion of the roster.

    AEW really needs to focus on the women’s division and put in considerably more effort if it hopes to curb some of the criticism it has faced for its underwhelming presentation over the last year.

AEW Tag Team Championship Match: The Young Bucks vs. FTR

7 OF 8

    Who is the greatest team of this generation?

    It is a question the AEW Tag Team Championship Match pitting FTR against The Young Bucks sought to answer. With Tully Blanchard barred from ringside, Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler would have to outwrestle Matt and Nick Jackson to retain their titles and prove their bravado accurate.

    The commentary team put over Matt’s injured leg and the guts it takes just to compete tonight. The Bucks neutralized the fist of Harwood early, targeting the right hand after the champion had struck it on the ring apron.

    The champions worked over the leg of Matt, looking to further exploit it. As the gutsy competitor fought back into the match, Wheeler distracted Nick, preventing the tag. Matt finally did make the tag and Nick exploded into the match, popping the crowd and quickening the pace.

    The champions momentarily halted the momentum but a blind tag to Matt allowed the Bucks to catch Wheeler off-guard with a spear for two. Matt tried to do too much, his knee not allowing it. FTR delivered the Steiner Brothers bulldog finisher but Matt kicked out at two, at the same time Nick speared Wheeler off the apron. 

    Back inside, the Bucks delivered a 3D to Wheeler, then followed with a Swanton as both teams pulled out the finishers of the teams that inspired them.

    Harwood flattened Nick with a powerbomb and Matt immediately rolled him up for two. Dax injured his own hand by throwing a punch, allowing Matt to fire off a series of strikes. FTR looked to recover with a spike piledriver but Nick sent Wheeler to the ground. Matt applied the Sharpshooter, Dax reached for the ropes and Nick superkicked the injured hand, forcing the heel to break his grasp on the rope.

    Matt stomped on Harwood’s hand, snapped his fingers and joined Nick for the BTE Trigger. Wheeler broke up the pin. Nick wiped him out at ringside with the escalera while Matt teased using a chair on Harwood. Instead, he set up for the Indie Taker but Wheeler appeared and powerbombed Nick into a table at ringside.

    The spike piledriver followed, but Wheeler erred and Matt draped his foot over the bottom rope to break the pin. Ripping the boot off his injured foot, FTR worked over Matt’s limb, looking to force a submission.

    Wheeler attempted to wipe out Nick but whiffed and the younger Buck delivered a 450 splash to Harwood for two. 

    Moments later, Matt seized a momentary opening presented by Cash’s failure to pin after his own strike and blasted Wheeler with a superkick to earn the win and titles. Kenny Omega joined the victors after the match.



    Young Bucks defeated FTR to win the AEW Tag Team Championships






    There’s your AEW Match of the Year.

    This lived up to the loftiest of expectations, providing fans a smartly wrestled match heavy on in-ring psychology and storytelling. Both teams dealt with injuries, borrowed from the arsenals of wrestling’s greatest teams and came within seconds of earning the win.

    In the end, it was an uncharacteristic mistake by Wheeler, the second in a matter of moments, that cost FTR the victory.

    There will be some who loved the finish, with Matt reverting back to the thing that brought the Bucks to the dance, while others will consider it anticlimactic. Either way, more than enough preceded it to secure it consideration for the pro wrestling match of the year, especially given the heightened expectations that preceded it.

    Just a great, great bit of business and the classic we had waited on from FTR since they signed with the company.

Ultimate Deletion: Matt Hardy vs. Sammy Guevara

8 OF 8

    Matt Hardy welcomed Sammy Guevara to the Hardy Compound for Ultimate Deletion by nearly running him over with a monster truck and exclaiming, “now that’s a squash job!”

    The competitors brawled all over the property, including into the family fountain, before heading to the ring.

    Hardy powerbombed Guevara through a table but Santana and Ortiz interrupted. Private Party made the save while Hardy shot off some Roman Candle fireworks. Guevara did the same, the competitors trading fire from different areas at the compound.

    Meanwhile, Private Party, Santana and Ortiz battled inside the squared circle.

    Hardy and Guevara battled until a mysterious cloaked man appeared and threatened Hurricane Helms. He revealed himself to be Gangrel before all hell broke loose. Helms and Hardy conversed in a nice callback. Guevara threw Helms into the Lake of Reincarnation, from which he returned as Ace Reporter Gregory Helms.

    The Spanish God controlled the fight with Hardy while Gangrel, Private Party, Santana, Ortiz and Guevara battled at the ring. Santana and Hardy fought into the woods, where they battled into the Dome of Deletion. Guevara dismantled the ring inside it, using turnbuckles and ring ropes against his opponent.

    With Hardy draped on a table, Guevara scaled a massive ladder and executed a Swanton Bomb. It only netted a two-count.

    A vengeful Hardy drove the edge of a chair into the face of The Spanish God, then to the back of the head for the win.

    After the match, Hardy and Private Party had Senor Benjamin drive Guevara away from the compound.



    Hardy defeated Guevara






    There were some quality spots in this, mostly including Hurricane and Gangrel. Unfortunately, it was way too long for what it ultimately turned out to be.

    Creatively, it built off previous compound spots and moments from the rivalry, rendering it a success in that regard.

    Overall, though, it was needlessly bloated and continued the narrative that Guevara might be the future, but he’s never really going to beat any of the more established stars on the roster. Which begs the question: will it prove too little, too late when his time finally comes?

    Chris Jericho vs. MJF

    9 OF 9

      His position in The Inner Circle at stake, Maxwell Jacob Friedman arrived in Daily’s Place for the biggest match of his career, a showdown with “The Demo God” Chris Jericho. Unfazed by the enormity of the moment, MJF entered the arena in a light-up ring robe, both a knock and ode to his Hall of Fame opponent.

      Thick tension gave way to a slugfest as Jericho showed his opponent little respect early, slapping him to incite the fisticuffs. Jericho dipped into his bag of tricks, pulling out a few of his greatest hits as he outclassed his younger, lesser-experienced opponent.

      MJF finally found an opening and worked over the right arm of his opponent, attempting to take away the Judas Effect while also setting Jericho up for the Salt of the Earth armbar finisher.

      Jericho fended off the onslaught of his opponent, delivering a lionsault and following with a frankensteiner from the top rope for two. Excalibur put over Jericho changing things up to the idea that MJF had scouted the modern offense of Le Champion.

      MJF again targeted the arm, this time applying his armbar finisher. Jericho positioned his body in a way that prevented full effect of the move, then countered into the Walls of Jericho. He sat down on the back, putting MJF in dire straits.

      The brash young competitor made it to the ropes, delivered a Codebreaker and followed with a Heat Seeker for a near-fall. MJF tried for a lionsault but Jericho delivered a Codebreaker of his own for two. 

      MJF countered the Judas Effect into the armbreaker. Jericho fought out. MJF motioned to Wardlow to give him the Dynamite Diamond Ring. Jericho countered with his baseball bat, but his opponent took a page out of the book of Eddie Guerrero, feigning injury.

      An argument between Jericho and referee Aubrey Edwards gave way to MJF scoring a rollup for the win.



      MJF defeated Jericho






      This was a really solidly wrestled match that stayed true to both men’s heel characters.

      What really worked here was the involvement of referee Edwards. Jericho pulled her in between him and MJF to his own benefit at one point and MJF did so moments later. Then, as he has in nearly every one of his big pay-per-view matches, Jericho engaged her in a mid-ring argument that ultimately led to the finish.

      MJF pulling out Jericho’s own offense against him was equally as effective, as was the egotistical loudmouth’s ode to Guerrero.

      What could have been an incredibly difficult match to book with both men serving as heel was, instead, a smartly executed contest that never asked either man to be something he was not. The result was a compelling match with a finish that propels things forward and leaves audiences wondering what a post-Full Gear Inner Circle with MJF and Wardlow involved looks like.

      "I Quit" Match for the AEW World Championship: Jon Moxley vs. Eddie Kingston

      10 OF 10

        The most emotionally intense rivalry in AEW came to a head in the main event of Full Gear as AEW World Champion Jon Moxley defended against challenger Eddie Kingston in an “I Quit” Match. There were no pinfalls or disqualifications. The only way to win, only way to ensure one would leave with the gold, was by making your opponent utter those two words.

        Punches and chops dominated the early action. A tope suicida by Moxley was the first big high spot of the match as the champion exploded through the ropes and onto his opponent. Moxley targeted the fingers of his opponent, looking to take the spinning back fist out of his arsenal.

        The champion delivered a big suplex on the arena floor, driving the air from Kingston.

        Back in the ring, a bloodied Moxley produced a barbed wire baseball bat and dug it into Kingston’s face, torturing the challenger in an attempt to get him to say he quit. The challenger ducked a wild swing with the weapon and delivered a pair of teardrop suplexes. 

        Kingston unloaded with a chair to Moxley, then removed barbed wire from the bat and wrapped it around his hand. He pounded away at Moxley’s face and dug it deep into the champion’s forehead. He followed with the spinning back fist and applied a kimura.

        Moxley bit the leg of the challenger to break the submission. He followed with a suplex onto an unfolded chair. Kingston recovered and retrieved a bag of thumbtacks, pouring them all over the mat. Moxley rocked him with a German suplex, the challenger immediately followed with a backdrop suplex and the champion rebounded with a massive lariat. 

        Kingston delivered a uranage onto Moxley, into the thumbtacks. Dismayed that the champion did not quit, Kingston grabbed a bottle from alcohol at ringside. He delivered a blatant low blow, followed by another before stomping on the champion’s nether regions.

        The challenger emptied the rubbing alcohol all over the punctured back of the champion and grabbed the barbed wire again. He applied the bulldog choke, the same choke Moxley used on him. Kingston unloaded with ugly crossface shots to the face. Moxley quickly seized an opening and applied a sleeper.

        A big piledriver by the champion and a bulldog choke of his own followed. Moxley delivered the Paradigm Shift. He applied the bulldog choke again, this time with the barbed wire. Kingston finally quit, awarding the match to the champion.



        Moxley defeated Kingston to retain






        There was a lot of uncomfortable violence in this one but for a match between two men hellbent on not quitting, there needed to be. It needed to be unabashedly physical and violent. It had to portray two men unloading everything their twisted minds could imagine on each other in the name of holding the top prize in AEW.

        It did, in a prime bit of storytelling that escalated with every spot, culminating in Moxley doing what was necessary to hold onto his title. As he has done countless times over the course of his reign.

        Kingston turned in the performance of a lifetime, recognizing the gravity of the match and just how significant it was to his journey as a performer. He was great on the night he needed to be his greatest and hopefully, it earns him more dances at the top of the card.

        Moxley now sets his sights on Kenny Omega, who made his presence felt in the closing moments of the show. They had a similarly brutal affair at last year’s Full Gear, a match won by Moxley. This time, there will be no extravagant hardcore spots or use of shattered glass. It will be a wrestling match, which favors Omega.

        Will their latest battle prove to be the one Moxley cannot escape with the gold intact, particularly as Omega rolls in singles competition?

        We will find out as AEW tells their story in the weeks and months to come.
