Everything you need to know about AEW Full Gear 2022

AEW’s final pay-per-view of the year, Full Gear, will take place on Saturday, November 19, with eight matches.


With only four PPV events scheduled a year, a lot of things in the AEW can change between each event. But, while that's expected, the jump from the last PPV to the next one is quite big. So, if you need a primer to help you follow the events of Full Gear on Saturday, November 19, more closely, say no more.

AEW's biggest event of the year will cap off the promotion's week-long celebration.

But, before anything else, CM Punk is no longer in the AEW and it's likely not just for the sake of a storyline.

The AEW World Champion got into a scuffle backstage following his win a few months ago and the AEW hasn't looked the same since. Case in point, we haven't had a chance to see the company's founding EVPs around. Speaking of absences, fans have been missing the House of Black albeit their return seems imminent.

Thankfully, the AEW managed to weather the storm with the help of fresh faces like Sayara. But, if we're being honest, the AEW needs serious help.

TV ratings and live event attendance has slipped in recent months and it's likely connected to the recent controversies. The AEW has to have a strong showing at Full Gear with little to zero hiccups. Otherwise, the Triple H-led WWE could end up as the runaway winners of the ongoing war between the two wrestling promotions.

Having said that, here's everything you need to know about Full Gear:

  • Date: Saturday, November 19
  • Venue: Prudential Center, Newark, NJ
  • Start time: 8:00 PM ET / 5:00 PM PT
  • Matches confirmed:
    • Jon Moxley vs. MJF - Singles match for the AEW World Championship
    • The Acclaimed (Anthony Bowens and Max Caster) (defending champions) vs. Swerve In Our Glory (Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland) - Tag team match for the AEW World Tag Team Championship
    • Ethan Page or Bandido vs. TBD - Winner receives shot at AEW World Championship at Winter Is Coming
    • Toni Storm vs. Jamie Hayter - Singles match for the interim AEW Women's World Championship
    • Chris Jericho vs. Bryan Danielson vs. Claudio Castagnoli vs. Sammy Guevara - Four-way match for the ROH World Championship
    • Jade Cargill vs Nyla Rose - Singles match for the AEW TBS Championship
    • Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D vs. Saraya - Singles match
    • Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal vs. Sting and Darby Allin - Tag team match
    • Luchasaurus vs. "Jungle Boy" Jack Perry - Steel Cage match
The AEW is likely hoping to use Full Gear to start fresh ahead of the new year.

The AEW is going through a rough patch right now but the highly anticipated event should help restart things for the wrestling promotion.

Jon Moxley's done a great job at anchoring AEW, both in promos and in real life. It also doesn't hurt that he's squaring up against MJF, who knows how to walk the walk and talk the talk. In addition to this, their showdown serves as the main highlight for the rest of the evening, which is full of title matches as well as other must-watch spectacles. If Tony Khan's previous history is to go by, we'll be seeing at least one or two more matches added in the next few days.

Full Gear has to be more than just a fun night of pro wrestling and we have a hunch that it will deliver.
