This is Kay’s AEW debut, noting she was a free agent earlier this week. Kay with a quick trip of the champion, goes for the cover, only one-count. Kay remains in control of that match, shoulder tackle on the champion, but then takes a few arm drags, and a dragon screw leg whip.

AEW Full Gear Results – November 7, 2020

AEW Full Gear Opener:

A video package opens the pay-per-view broadcast for the AEW Full Gear 2020 main card. The package focuses on a few of the top matches advertised for tonight’s show.

We shoot LIVE inside Daily’s Place amphitheater in Jacksonville, FL. where Jim Ross, Tony Schiavone and Excalibur welcome us to the AEW Full Gear 2020 pay-per-view broadcast, as fire and pyro erupts at the top of the entrance stage.

Now we listen-in as the commentary trio run down the lineup of matches scheduled for tonight’s PPV card, with the match graphic for each bout flashing on the screen as they run them down one-by-one.

World Title Eliminator Tournament Finals
Kenny Omega vs. “Hangman” Adam Page

Winner of this match receives a future AEW World Championship Match. Impact Wrestling EVP Don Callis (introduced by that title on air) joined commentary to help call the match.

 The bell sounds and these two are ready to go. They want nothing to do with a handshake, instead circling and going straight to business.

Page goes for the Sliding Lariat, no dice. Omega goes for the V-Triigger, no dice either. Both guys are all over the place and on fire straight out of the gates here at AEW Full Gear. Now the two exchange vicious chops over-and-over again, with Page seemingly getting the better of the two. He hits the ropes, however Omega sends him out to the floor and follows up with a big dive.

As the action resumes inside the ring, it is still a very much back-and-forth offensive battle with neither man establishing any lengthy lead in control of the action. The match finds itself back on the floor, with “Hangman” taking it to Omega as the referee begins his double count on both guys. Page slams Omega into the ring barricade on the floor and slides back in the ring to break the referee’s count.

“Hangman” heads right back out after Omega, as he is starting to pull ahead for those keeping score on the control factor in this match thus far. The battle is still ongoing on the floor, however one momentary lapse in concentration from Page leads to Omega capitalizing by leaping onto the barricade and flying off with a moonsault, splashing onto Page on the way down as the fans come alive inside Daily’s Place.

Back in the ring, Omega remains in control of the offense, however he seems to tweak his knee. Regardless, he heads to the top-rope for a big high spot. Now Omega slaps a front face-lock on Page after clutching his knee again. Page escapes and makes it to his feet, blasting Omega with a chop. Omega hits Page back with a pair of his own chops before sending him to the ropes. Omega goes over the top and lands on the apron, however Page sprints at him and knocks him to the floor with a running clothesline.

Page slingshots himself over the top-rope, looking for a cross-body splash onto Omega, however Omega rolled back in the ring to avoid it, leaving Page to crash and burn. Omega follows up with a big splash on Page on the floor, before heading back in the ring and sprinting for another follow-up tope suicida onto Page on the floor.

The action finally resumes back in the ring after we see some replays of the aforementioned Omega high spot. Back in the ring, we see the offensive momentum shift into the favor of Page, as Omega’s tweaked knee is starting to become a factor in this match. After enjoying a few minutes in the offensive driver’s seat, Omega starts to fight his way back into competitive form as the pace of the bout picks up. Finally, we near the finish, which sees Omega hit his finisher for the victory. He will be the next title challenger for whomever emerges as the AEW World Heavyweight Champion following tonight’s AEW Full Gear 2020 PPV main event.

Winner and NEW No. 1 Contender: Kenny Omega

John “4” Silver vs. Orange Cassidy

The bell sounds and here we go. With both guys going face-to-face, we get some comedy relief, as Silver over-reacts as Cassidy slowly raises his hands up and then even more slowly lowers them down into his pockets. Silver turns and walks away in disbelief that he did it. Cassidy ends up taking it to Silver now, and when the dust settles, Silver stands up and watches in disbelief as Cassidy does the non-shalant shin-kicks, culminating with a legitimate dropkick that sends Silver to the floor.

The bell sounds and here we go. With both guys going face-to-face, we get some comedy relief, as Silver over-reacts as Cassidy slowly raises his hands up and then even more slowly lowers them down into his pockets. Silver turns and walks away in disbelief that he did it. Cassidy ends up taking it to Silver now, and when the dust settles, Silver stands up and watches in disbelief as Cassidy does the non-shalant shin-kicks, culminating with a legitimate dropkick that sends Silver to the floor.

Silver returns to the ring and with Cassidy still having his hands in his pockets, the Dark Order member blasts the “Freshly Squeezed” one, knocking him down to the mat and following up by literally ripping the pockets out of his jeans. As Cassidy gets up on his knees, Silver blasts him in the chest with vicious kicks. As the pace in the ring picks up, we get some dueling chants from the fans, who appear to be chanting “HI-HO-SILVER!” or “Let’s Go Silver” and then another competitive chant in support of the “Freshly Squeezed” one.

The Dark Order member is now enjoying a comfortable offensive lead, as he poses with a double-biceps to the fans who “boo” away. He blows them some kisses anyways and then blasts Cassidy with another kick. The camera closes in on Austin Gunn seated in the front row reacting to the action in the ring. Silver whips Cassidy into the corner with power, blasting him hard enough that he bounces off and crashes down to the mat.

Cassidy fires up, and starts showing signs of life. He fights his way back into the contest and out of nowhere, looks to finish Silver off with the Orange Punch, however Silver avoids it and returns to his dominant form, blasting Cassidy with his vicious variety of kicks.

Now we see Silver take Cassidy down with authority for a close near fall. He follows that up with a big Spin Doctor for another near fall. Silver looks unsure how to finish off Cassidy. On that note, Orange fires up again and makes his back comeback.

Cassidy starts taking it to the Dark Order member and now he catches him with his Orange Punch. He follows that up with the Beach Blast for the pinfall victory.

Winner: Orange Cassidy

After the match, we see some replays of the action and some of the high spots during the bout, before returning live where we see the Best Friends have joined Orange Cassidy inside the ring for one reason and one reason only — and that’s to give the people what they want! The trio ends the segment with a Best Friends Hug.

TNT Championship
“The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes (c) vs. Darby Allin

Cody and Darby Allin slowly close in on each other and go face-to-face, staring at each other motionless for a while as they let the fans decide who they’re going to chant and cheer for. With that behind us, the two begin circling and this one is now officially underway.

The announcers are selling the fact that Darby Allin is not intimidated one bit by Cody, despite “The American Nightmare” holding a victory over him in their previous high-profile showdown. As the action gets underway, neither guy is able to establish any real offensive jump on the other, with each guy having isolated moments and the other taking over immediately thereafter.

From the hammer-lock position, Cody launches Allin over the top-rope, where he crashes down hard onto the floor outside the ring. We hear Darby yelling out in anguish after his rough landing. Cody brings the action back in the ring and goes to work on the same arm of Darby that he just softened up with the aforementioned spot. He stands up and stomps on the weakened limb of the challenger now.

Darby works his way back to his feet. He tries to hip-toss Cody, however the champ sinks down on the arm of Allin and yanks away at it, adding further punishment to the already softened up arm of the challenger. He takes Allin down to the mat now and again locks his arm up behind him as he continues to dominate the action thus far.

Rhodes stands back up and puts the boots to Darby. He picks Allin up and takes him to the corner of the ring. He sits him on the top-rope and climbs up after him. He picks Darby up and throws him over his own shoulder. He comes flying off the top-rope and slams the challenger down with authority before returning his focus on the injured arm of Allin.

One window of opportunity is left open for Darby Allin to capitalize off of and that’s all he needed to show that he is still alive and with a fighting chance on his side, as he blasts the champ with a big move that shifts the offensive momentum in his favor. Arn Anderson looks worried at ringside now as Darby is firing up and showing his first signs of life in a while as he makes his big comeback.

Allin takes Cody to the corner now and takes him up to the top-rope, following up after him. He now positions Cody looking for a high spot, however as they go flying off together, Cody reverses in mid-air and they come down with Cody hitting a Cross-Rhodes off the top-rope. Wow! We see a bunch of replays of that one. Allin rolled through to avoid being finished off and now he jumps on the back of Cody, slapping a sleeper-hold on the champion.

The champion walks around with the challenger holding onto the sleeper hold while on the back of Cody. Cody carries Darby on his back, still in the sleeper-hold, over to the corner where he starts climbing up the ropes backwards, ala Vader preparing for a Vader Bomb . He flies off backwards and they crash down together, with the impact breaking the hold Darby had on Cody’s throat. Cody gets up and scoops Darby up for a slam. Arn yells for another. Cody obliges. The announcers talk about Cody starting to seemingly get discouraged at how Darby has the never-die fighting spirit that keeps him in the fight at all times.

As Cody continues to dominate the challenger, we see him get fired up a bit much now as he takes the weight belt off ala Hollywood Hogan in the nWo black-and-white days of WCW during the Monday Night Wars against WWE. This backfires, however, as Darby used the belt to help sweep Cody’s legs out for a roll-up pin attempt out of nowhere. “The American Nightmare” manages to kick out just in time to avoid the upset from Darby.

Pump kick by Cody, cross rhodes, no, multiple pins, reversals back and forth, Allin finally gets one for a three count!

Winner and NEW TNT Champion: Darby Allin

After the match Cody goes right over to the referee and is shocked. He takes the title and looks over at AA. Cody then kneels down and hands over the title to Allin. Allin is pretty emotional as he takes the title, gets on the second rope and holds it up. Cody puts the title over Allin’s shoulder and raises his arm up. From the back, Taz comes out to the stage and yells “enough!” He’s over what’s going on in the ring. He tells them to hit the bricks, but Brian Cage and Ricky Starks attack from behind. They lay out both Cody and Allin. Cage and Starks both pick up the title and kind of stare at each other for a moment. Taz jumps in and takes the title. He then gives direction to Cage, who then looks to finish off Allin. Cody jumps into help out, but Starks and Cage get rid of him. Allin is then thrown through a set piece. Allin is then brought over to the car he arrived in, they look to break Allin’s arm in the car door, but Will Hobbs charges them with a chair and chases the stable away.

— Backstage, The Natural Nightmares talk with Dasha. QT Marshall talks about Allie (The Bunny) trying to infiltrate their group, and use him for his money. Dustin Rhodes announces he wants a Bunkhouse Match against The Butcher and The Blade on this Wednesday’s Dynamite. Also next week: Penta El Zero M vs. Rey Fenix, and Tay Conti vs. Red Velvet.

The bell sounds and here we go as Jericho plays to the crowd some more while MJF pulls up his elbow pad. MJF now motions for the fans to quiet down. They boo. MJF puts one hand behind his back and extends the other to Jericho for a sportsmanlike pre-match handshake.

The fans chant “you suck!” at him as he reaches again to Jericho for a pre-match sign of good sportsmanship. Jericho, instead, b*tch-slaps Friedman across the mouth, and on that note, we’re off-and-runnin’!

Back in the ring, Jericho pulls even further ahead as the gap widens between the two and “Le Champion” settles into a comfortable offensive lead.

Jericho fires up as he hits the Lionsault and then takes MJF to the top-rope, coming off with a nice top-rope hurricanrana for a close near-fall. Jericho continues to show signs of his younger self, which the announcers do a good job of pointing out based on certain spots he hits in the match. Finally, MJF shows his first sign of life in a while as he fires back at Jericho as the two start exchanging shots on the feet.

MJF starts yelling at Jericho as he blasts him with big shots. As they trade strikes the fans do dueling “Boo!” and “Yay!” chants, with Jericho getting the babyface reaction and MJF getting the heel response from the fans here in Jacksonville. Jericho shifts the momentum back in his favor, locking MJF in the Liontamer / Walls of Jericho. Friedman shouts out in pain as he scratches and claws his way to the bottom rope, forcing a break of the hold.

Jericho lets go and walks off celebrating like he won the match until Aubrey Edwards informs him that the match isn’t over and that MJF actually made it to the ropes. Jericho goes back to work on MJF, putting the boots to a grounded Friedman before turning his attention to referee Aubrey Edwards, who he tries to pull in between himself and MJF as she yells, “Don’t touch me!”

Friedman hits the Codebreaker on Jericho out of the ropes and then a Heatseeker for a close near fall. That looked scary as Jericho landed on top of his head on the way down. Meanwhile, the crowd comes alive. MJF gets back to his feet and he looks for a Lionsault of his own, however Jericho avoids it and catches him coming down with a Codebreaker. He covers him for another nearfall, with MJF kicking out at 2 and 1/2.

A Judas Effect attempt backfires and MJF takes advantage, putting Jericho in the Fujiwara Armbar and yanking away. Jericho makes it to the ropes to force the hold to be broken. MJF calls for the Dynamite Diamond Ring and out comes Wardlow. He gives it to MJF. Before MJF can use it, however, Jericho calls for Floyd the baseball bat from Jake Hager, who was at ringside.

MJF looks shocked and nervous, and as Jericho winds up with the bat, MJF pulls an Eddie Guerrero, simply taking a flat-back without getting touched and pretending like Jericho hit him with the bat, as referee Aubrey Edwards turns to see Jericho holding the bat and MJF seemingly laid out. As Jericho tries to explain to Edwards what really happened, MJF comes alive and yanks the trunks of Jericho, rolling him up and holding the trunks to score the pinfall victory.

Winner and NEWEST member of the Inner Circle: MJF

After the match, MJF and Chris Jericho stare each other down. Hager is standing at Jericho’s side while Wardlow stands by MJF’s side. The two stare for a while and then MJF extends his hand to Jericho. Jericho pauses and then shakes it, pulling MJF in and hugging him. “Welcome MJF and Wardlow to the Inner Circle, baby!” says ‘Le Champion’ and the leader of the Inner Circle, which just grew by two members (or one, if Sammy Guevara is dead after Elite Deletion!)

— We head backstage where The Best Friends are standing alongside the “Freshly Squeezed” one himself, Orange Cassidy. They talk about the big win Orange Cassidy had over John “4” Silver of the Dark Order earlier this evening. As they continue to talk, in walks the trio of “The Best Man” Miro, Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford. They demand an apology from Cassidy, as they point out that his recent “shenanigans” almost hurt Ford. Cassidy gives a very unsincere apology, which they weren’t satisfied with.

AEW World Heavyweight Championship
(“I QUIT MATCH”)
Jon Moxley (c) vs. Eddie Kingston

The pre-match video package airs to catch fans up on the storied rivalry between the champion and challenger heading into tonight’s highly-anticipated showdown.

The bell sounds and we’re off-and-running with our featured match of the evening. Moxley and Kingston exchange ferocious punches, ala Don Frye and Yoshihiro Takayama in the heydey of PRIDE Fighting Championships in Japan. As the smoke clears and the dust settles, they trade in their punches for chops and we see Mox take Kingston down and briefly control him on the mat.

The action ends up back on the feet with both guys taking turns trading chops and then taking turns b*tch-smacking the hell out of each other back-and-forth. Kingston starts to pull ahead, as he nearly takes Mox’s leg out from him with a big kick and then he blasts Mox with a belly-to-back suplex. Mox rolls to the floor, however Kingston goes out after him.

Kingston picks Mox up and rolls him in the ring, but before he can re-enter the ring as well, Mox hits the ropes and sprints across the ring, flying the ropes and splashing onto Kingston with a wild tope suicida. As the fight continues on the floor, Mox isolates Kingston’s arm and threatens to break the fingers of Kingston as he bends them backwards and yanks on them. The two continue to brawl their way up the entrance aisle next to the ramp.

Finally, the two return the action inside the ring where a steel chair and eventually a barbed wire baseball bat join them. Both guys are busted open and bleeding now after their brawl around the venue and usage of the aforementioned weapons in the ring now, as the violence level in this one is starting to increase by a couple of notches.

We see Kingston show his first signs of life in a while, as he uses a surge of energy to blast Mox with a belly-to-back suplex. And another. He grabs the steel chair and from his knees, ala Sabu in the original ECW, throws it and blasts Mox in the head with it. From their knees and butt, Mox and Kingston exchange eye-gouges and punches. The challenger gets the better of the exchange and decks the champ. He stands up and picks Mox up, tripping him down so he falls onto the barbed wire baseball bat.

Kingston grabs the steel chair and walks over to Mox. He swings it hard, like The Rock blasting Ken Shamrock right in the grill as hard as he can, or The Rock blasting Mick Foley in their own I Quit Match at the Royal Rumble match featured in the Beyond The Mat documentary. Kingston continues to punish Mox. He stands a lifeless Mox up and blasts him with the spinning-back-fist that started his troubles the last time these two went at it. Kingston locks Mox in the same choke the champ used to beat him in their first match on AEW Dynamite.

Mox tries to bite at Kingston to escape the hold, however Kingston keeps it on regardless. He eventually lets it go and sits Mox down in the corner. The camera closes in on Mox’s blood-covered face. Kingston unfolds a steel chair and sets it in the middle of the ring. Mox ends up turning the tables and hoisting Kingston up, suplexing him down onto the unfolded chair set up in the middle of the ring. He holds his back after the landing, but is still up before Mox and back to delivering punishment to the champ.

He leaves him laying in the ring covered in his own blood now as he heads out under the ring for some more goodies. This time he pulls out a sack, presumably of thumbtacks. Indeed. He re-enters the ring and opens the sack, grabbing a handful of shiney silver thumbtacks and sprinkling them all over the ring mat. Before he can do anything further, however, Mox fires up and hits a big clothesline that floors the challenger. Mox, who is bleeding even more than he was earlier now, with more blood pouring out of his nose in addition to the blood flowing from his forehead.

Kingston ends up slamming Mox with great authority on the pile of thumbtacks he poured on the ring mat. He exits the ring and grabs a single strand of barbed wire from the barbed wire baseball bat used earlier in the match. The same strand he used to dig and claw at the face of Mox to open up the cut that is free-flowing blood. Now we see Kingston grabbed a bottle of rubbing alcohol, as he is apparently intending on adding a little burn to the open wounds of the champion.

Kingston puts the boots to a grounded Mox, including one that he slams down between the legs of Mox, which he held up in the air. The low-blow stomp from Kingston prompts a writhing in pain Mox to flip off Kingston from his back. Finally, with Mox crawling around in pain, Kingston unscrews the lid off of the bottle of rubbing alcohol. He pours it onto the bloody back of the champion as he screams in agony and the fan-noise inside Daily’s Place picks up. Kingston now exits the ring and grabs the loose strand of barbed wire. He re-enters the ring with it and locks Mox in the Bulldog Choke that Mox used to beat Kingston in their previous match.

He chokes away at Mox, but as Schiavone points out on commentary, Kingston is gripping and squeezing but letting go so he can squeeze some more, almost toying with Mox and letting him keep just enough air in his lungs to stay conscious and deal with the pain and unpleasantness. Mox ends up firing up and making a comeback, taking it to Kingston. He hits the Paradigm Shift on Kingston.

Mox wraps the loose strand of barbed wire around his arm and then he stalks his prey. He finally locks in the Bulldog Choke with the arm that is choking the throat of Kingston being the one wrapped in the single strand of barbed wire. Eventually Kingston has no choice but to say the two words he didn’t want to utter. “I quit.” Jon Moxley’s music begins playing and the referee hands him the AEW World Heavyweight Championship belt, which he is still the proud owner of after this brutally violent “I Quit Match” main event here at AEW Full Gear.

Winner and STILL AEW World Heavyweight Champion: Jon Moxley

After the match, Moxley helps Kingston up, but Kingston wants none of it. Moxley tries to talk with Kingston, he just shakes his head at the champion and stumbles to the back. Moxley goes to the turnbuckle and raises up the title. Omega then heads out and smiles at Moxley. He says a few words to him, but doesn’t get in the ring. Omega heads to the back as Moxley celebrates a bit more.
