Below are some notables are below from Saturday night’s Full Gear Media scrum, which took place at the KIA Forum in Inglewood, just outside of Los Angeles, CA.
Tony Khan said the event drew over 13,000 fans and had “well over” 100,000 buys on pay-per-view. He also noted this was the most attended Full Gear in the history and that the numbers were tracking to be above October’s WrestleDream that was held in Seattle, WA
Khan confirmed that Ronda Rousey is not signed to an AEW or ROH contract. He said that he would love to have her back in the future.
For the Continental Classic, there will be no one allowed at ringside and no interference during the matches. Winners will receive three points. One point will be awarded to each wrestler for a draw. The loser gets no points.
Eddie Kingston is putting the ROH World Title and the NJPW Strong Title on the line. The winner will become a Triple Crown Champion, as this is a consolidation of titles. The titles will be unified into one title which can be defended in AEW, ROH, and NJPW. It will also be defended throughout the year and whoever holds the title next year will be entered into next year’s AEW Continental Classic.
The round-robin tournament starts on Dynamite this Wednesday, with the finals taking place at the Worlds End pay-per-view at the Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, NY on December 30.
The participants thus are Bryan Danielson, Andrade El Idolo, Mark Briscoe, Eddie Kingston.
