The Mad King wants the AEW World Championship title, and he wants to take it from an enemy he once considered a friend. Eddie Kingston challenges Jon Moxley on Saturday for the AEW World Championship. Moxley has a battle ahead, and based on the stats over at Cagematch.net; he might be okay after all. Kingston is 0-4 against Moxley, facing him once in ICW and twice in CZW. Moxley won by Referee’s Decision in their first AEW meeting.
When Cody Rhodes won the AEW TNT Championship for a second time, it was expected by many that his feud with Brodie Lee and The Dark Order would still be an ongoing storyline. Those expectations were wrong when cameras showed Darby Allin in the crowd on the October 14th episode of AEW Dynamite. Commentators then announced that he would be challenging Rhodes at Full Gear. The last time these two met was during the AEW TNT Championship Tournament Semi-Final.
The time has come, and wrestling fans are finally getting the match that many have been clamoring for, and it’s the one that will get the world to rejoice. The Young Bucks are challenging FTR. If a full crowd were even remotely possible a few months ago, it probably would have been the main event at AEW’s September All Out PPV. The build-up for this match could have been better, but its history behind it helps the hype.
This show’s focus has pretty much been on Moxley/Kingston and FTR/Young Bucks, but the match between Kenny Omega and Adam “Hangman” Page could easily be the match of the night. It will not shock anyone if it’s even in contention for the 2020 match of the year. The former tag-team champions are finally going to face-off head to head. The Cleaner and The Hangman will fight it out to see who will be the number one contender for the AEW World Title.
Chris Jericho and MJF had one of the most interesting but yet oddest builds for their match. They had a musical act that nobody expected to see, and for the most part, the reviews have been good. The stipulation for this match is if MJF wins, he will be able to join Jericho’s stable “The Inner Circle.” If MJF wins, does he have an ulterior motive? If Jericho loses, how will the members of The Inner Circle view the leader of their stable?
When AEW announced this match, many people couldn’t help but be curious about why. Nyla Rose will be challenging Hikaru Shida for the AEW Women’s Title. We have seen almost no build for this match. We have seen a lot of speculation wondering if this would have been the best time to set-up for a Britt Baker championship match. It is also worth noting that Nyla Rose will have Vickie Guerrero in her corner.
Matt Hardy scared everyone at All Out when he got injured in his match against Sammy Guevara. This match is cinematic, so it is incredibly doubtful that fans will have to worry about this happening again. This feud has been going on for a long time, and we can only hope this will officially end it.
The Orange Cassidy phenomenon is still going strong, and it should not shock anyone. He is loved primarily by the vast majority of people. When Cassidy beat Chris Jericho in their Mimosa Mayhem Match at All Out in September, he moved on and faced Cody Rhodes for the TNT Championship title. He failed to win the title; however, he did go the distance in both his matches against Rhodes. John Silver will be his opponent for the Buy-In bout. Silver has been getting a lot more attention lately. EDIT – This has officially changed and is now part of the main card.
** New match added **
Today, AEW Owner Tony Kahn announced on Twitter that the Buy-In Match will now be between Serena Deeb and Allysin Kay. Deeb will be defending her NWA Women’s Championship Title.
