AEW FULL GEAR LIVE BLOG & MATCH COVERAGE
Stop your hands from shaking, look at me. Are your senses racing endlessly, tracing past impressions? So were mine, but now I’m just here to liveblog this pro wrestling show for you folks.
Eddie Kingston (c) vs. Jay Lethal (ROH World Championship)
Stokely Hathaway is on commentary for this one.
Lethal with a side headlock, shot off, shoulder block, back to the headlock. Kingston sends him to the floor with a lariat, Jay takes control on the way back and chokes him in the corner. Lethal remaining in control, trying to grind Eddie down, off the ropes, King catches him with the exploder suplex!
Lethal Combination, perching up top, boots up, roll through, rana pin… LETHAL KICKS OUT! Pump kick into an enzuigiri, Jay drops the elbow… SO CLOSE! Lethal Combination blocked, Saito suplex connects! Big Uranage… NOPE! Sonjay Dutt takes a hit on the floor, block the Lethal Combination again, Half and Half…
Eddie Kingston wins by pinfall with Backfist to the Future, retaining the ROH World Championship.
Post-match, Eddie cuts a promo from the ramp welcoming us to the preshow and telling us there’s a lot of shit up next and calling Stokely Hathaway a bald-headed bitch.
Buddy Matthews vs. Claudio Castagnoli
Matthews throws his jacket at Castagnoli but Claudio comes right back with uppercuts! Boot up in the corner, double leg, giant swing blocked, chops against the barricade, uppercut follows! Another charging uppercut, Buddy takes control on the floor with a knee and follows it up with diving Meteora!
Reverse chinlock applied, back suplex counters, Claudio with uppercuts into the corner, elbows, off the ropes with a big boot! Buddy with a crossleg victory roll for two, Castagnoli with Swiss Death… STILL NO! Flipping out of it, trading boots, block Meteora… GIANT SWING!
On the release, cover, still only a nearfall! Mounted punches in the corner, headbutts, Matthews slips under, and trips him up for Cheeky Nando’s! Tenryu powerbomb, no deal, Jackhammer… STILL NO! Arm-trap crossface on the kickout, overhead elbows follow when Castagnoli starts to fight out of it!
Fireman’s carry, TKO connects, Ricola Bomb into the Sharpshooter, Matthews crawls but can’t break free…
Claudio Castagnoli wins by submission with the Sharpshooter.
Post-match, Claudio offers a handshake but Buddy cold-shoulders him!
Ass Boys (Austin & Colten Gunn) vs. Maxwell Jacob Friedman (c) & Samoa Joe (ROH World Tag Team Championship)
Friedman and Colten to start, Max hot out the gates putting boots to him hard in the corner! Gunn cuts him off, side headlock, MJF takes him out, Fargo Strut, both Ass Boys attack at once! Joe dives and takes them both out! Back inside, he shrugs and walks away from a dropkick, senton into jabs, uppercut sets up the enzuigiri!
Joe drags Colten over, tag to a reluctant MJF and he ends up on the wrong side of town again. Double elbows, Max reaching, blocking punches, throwing Austin to the tag! Colten throws him into an elbow, Ass Boys running hot, double DDT, Max going for a Muscle Buster, so does Joe, Gunns slip out, pass them into each other!
Off the ropes, 3:10 to Yuma on Samoa Joe… MJF PULLS AUSTIN OFF THE COVER! Ass Boys in control— THAT’S ADAM COLE’S MUSIC! He hobbles down on crutches, his ROH World Championship on his waist, Joe takes Colten down…
Maxwell Jacob Friedman & Samoa Joe win by submission with the Coquina Clutch from Joe on Colten Gunn, and Adam Cole & MJF retain the ROH World Tag Team Championship.
Post-match, Joe reminds Max that he owes him a title match and they shake hands.
MJF and Cole are sharing a nice moment when the Ass Boys jump the world champion and beat him down with injured Adam helpless to do anything about it! The Gunns light on Friedman and smash his knee with a steel chair! They wrap the chair around his ankle… PILLMANIZED!
Medics come to ringside and stretch MJF off as I take advantage of a moment to go check the mail.
Lucky for y’all, my wife takes over while I’m out—
And he leaves the ring on a stretcher, the poor thing. Anyone else think it looks like his shirt says The Sour Scumbag? On his way into the meat wagon, MJF makes Adam Cole promise not to let them take his title.The Baby Adam Cole consents.
The main show begins with a video package highlighting tonight’s matches.
Commentary recaps the Gunns injuring Maxwell Jacob Friedman at the end of the preshow.
Adam Copeland, Darby Allin, & Sting vs. the Patriarchy (Christian Cage, Luchasaurus, & Nick Wayne)
Ric Flair is in the babyface teams’ corner.
Allin and Wayne to start, Darby taking control with a wristlock, one-armed monkey flip, headlock takedown! Trading arm drags, Allin tags Sting in and the Icon goes to work! Passing Nick to the floor, back inside, Cage is legal and Copeland tags in as well! Christian immediately chickens out and tags Luchasaurus in!
Adam with elbows, off the ropes, right hands, corner body avalanche, tag to Allin, boot up in the corner, sunset flip blocked, goozle, Darby flips out of the chokeslam but Christian hangs his neck over the top rope… LUCHASAURUS CHOKESLAMS ALLIN OVER THE ROPES AND TO THE APRON!
Back inside, Darby is on the wrong side of town as the Patriarchy works him over. Nick does the worst strut I’ve ever seen while making eye contact with the Nature Boy at ringside. Jockeying for position with Wayne in the turnbuckles, biting the hand… YOSHI TONIC OFF THE TOP!
Cage crawls under the ring and cuts Copeland off on the far side, Sting gives chase but Luchasaurus knocks him down! Christian tags in, stalking after Allin as he crawls into the empty turnbuckles, mocking him! Calling for it, spear, sidestepped, Adam in, Impaler DDT on Luchasaurus, Allin dives hard on everybody… STING JUMPS OVER RIC FLAIR TO HIT A PLANCHA ON THE DINOSAUR MAN!
Back inside, goozles on both Copeland and Sting, they fight out, inverted DDT set up… DIVING ELBOW-ASSISTED SCORPION DEATH DROP! The match breaks down, Luchasaurus fighting everybody and he knocks Adam down! Ric chopping away at Cage on the floor, Christian lays the Nature Boy out with a low blow!
Cage walks out…
Adam Copeland, Darby Allin, & Sting win by pinfall with the Coffin Drop from Allin on Luchasaurus.
