After photos surfaced earlier this week of Tony Khan holding what appeared to be the line-up for next month's AEW Full Gear PPV, the AEW President has moved to address whether what we saw was actually legitimate.
Speaking on Busted Open Radio (as per Wrestling Inc), Khan confirmed that the picture was legit, that the notes he was seen holding were relating to the Full Gear card, but he did stop short of revealing whether or not said notes were the finalised Full Gear matches.
As Tony put it:
"This weekend when I was at the Jags game at half-time, I was doodling on my notebook, and I saw that a lot of people had taken notice [of] some of the notes in my notebook, which is pretty amazing, because when you're walking around with small notes you never think that photographers are going to capture writing you've written down. I'm glad it wasn't anything more personal. But it's funny. People run with assumptions on the internet these days, and I've seen all these people jumping to conclusions like, 'Oh, that must be the Full Gear card'."
"And it's true, I announced on Barstool that Kenny vs. Hangman is the main event we've all been waiting for for Full Gear. It's going to be a huge PPV event, and Kenny vs. Hangman is absolutely huge. But I don't know, I was just kind of messing around with different ideas, playing around with stuff. It's like scratching around and it's all written in pencil and it's been erased. There may be things there that you do see."
While, as Tony Khan alluded to, these were rough notes or tentative plans, the Full Gear card spotted in Khan's hand included the following:
- Kenny Omega vs. Hangman Page
- Jon Moxley vs. Bryan Danielson
- The Inner Circle vs. American Top Team
- CM Punk vs. Wardlow
- MJF vs. Darby Allin
- Thunder Rosa vs. Jade Cargill
- Christian Cage vs. Adam Cole
- The Young Bucks vs. Jurassic Express
There were also matches listed for Britt Baker and Cody Rhodes, with Baker's opponent unclear, while Cody seemed to have Miro, Andrade El Idolo and Malakai Black as potential options.
Of course, the above may well end up not being what we see at Full Gear on 13 November, but if it is, it looks like an absolutely stacked card.
