Usually I post pictures of the women’s match for… reasons. But tonight is different.
Hey wrestling fans! There’s a PPV tonight. All Elite Wrestling presents Full Gear 2020. As usual for wrestling nowadays this will be socially distanced, minimal fans, and taking place in Florida. But we can still see lots of great wrestling action. I’m very invested in one of the matches tonight and have my fingers crossed. These are not who I want to win but who I think will win based on where I think story lines are going. So let’s take a look at the card.
Pre show match: Serena Deeb (NWA Women’s champion) vs Allysin Kay.
I like both of these women and I’m glad AEW is giving a showcase for this NWA title. I think there are too many things going on with contracts and deals to have a title change tonight. But I do think it will be fun. I’m predicting it to be the better of the two women’s matches tonight.
Winner: Serena Deeb.
Orange Cassidy vs John Silver.
This will be a fun match too. Both men have been looking great lately. I think OC should be built up and Silver loses nothing on a loss.
Winner: Orange Cassidy.
Chris Jericho vs MJF (with Wardlow). If MJF wins, he’s in the Inner Circle.
I’m thinking months ahead here. MJF will win. He joins the Inner Circle. He starts to gain more power within. He starts to take over. He and Jericho fight for control. Jericho gets dumped by Inner Circle and turns face. But all of that will start tonight.
Hikaru Shida (AEW Women’s champion) vs. Nyla Rose (with Vickie Guerrero).
I see no reason to put Vickie with Nyla unless she’s also getting the title. Plus with this influx of NWA talent, and I have to imagine it’s becoming tougher to travel back and forth from the US and Japan, I see a title change.
Winner: Nyla Rose.
Matt Hardy vs. Sammy Guevara in an “Elite Deletion” match.
This should be the end of this feud. Under the where do we go next question, Sammy is part of the Inner Circle. A loss here that is only turned around by MJF building Sammy back up would work for that larger story. Resulting in Sammy being loyal to MJF.
Winner: Matt Hardy.
FTR (AEW tag team champions) vs Young Bucks. Tully Blanchard barred from ringside. If the Young Bucks lose they can never challenge for the AEW tag titles again.
Unless AEW is going to make a TNT tag team title too, I only see one result here.
Winners: The Young Bucks.
Cody (TNT champion) (with Arn Anderson) vs. Darby Allin.
I want to be wrong but I just don’t see Cody losing his vanity title tonight. I would like to be wrong and Darby would be a good choice but I’m not expecting much tonight.
Hangman Adam Page vs Kenny Omega. Winner receives an AEW title shot.
I think it’s time. Have Kenny destroy the Hangman. Make him a hated heel, that fans hate even more because he’s also really good. Have Page fight for revenge, for respect. But make Kenny Omega Kenny Omega again.
Winner: Kenny Omega.
Jon Moxley (AEW World champion) vs Eddie Kingston in an I Quit match.
Today has already been a big day for my hopes and dreams and prayers. I can’t be selfish or too demanding of the forces in charge of the universe. But… But… No one has more momentum in all of wrestling right now than Eddie Kingston. In this COVID era we need excitement, we need unpredictability, we need moments that bring wrestling fans together while we are all separate. We need a title win here. Go ahead and have it change back on the next PPV or even on Dynamite during November sweeps. Fine. But give us all tonight. For the rest of his life Eddie will be able to call himself a World champion, no matter how long the reign lasts.
Winner I hope: Eddie Kingston.
