The Salt of the Earth and Switchblade do battle for the AEW World Championship
In the year where AEW runs its most ever PPVs in a 12-month span, AEW Full Gear marks the second-to-last such event of 2023 for Tony Khan's promotion - and excitement is high for what has shaped up to be an absolutely stacked card.
On headlining duties for Full Gear, it's Maxwell Jacob Friedman defending his AEW World Championship against 'Switchblade' Jay White. While that match in and of itself will be a war for the Salt of the Earth, making things even tougher for MJF is that he'll also be defending the ROH Tag Team Championships against the Gunns during the Full Gear pre-show. With his partner Adam Cole on the shelf indefinitely, Friedman goes into that tag match with the prospect of a mystery partner to take on Austin and Colten Gunn.
For the AEW Women's Championship, Full Gear will see Hikaru Shida defending that prize against 'Timeless' Toni Storm. Having become on the most must-see acts in AEW, could Toni become a three-time AEW Women's Champion by the time Full Gear is done? Likewise, what role, if any, will the recently-arrived Mariah May have to play in all of this?
In other title matches, we've got Kris Statlander defending the AEW TBS Championship in triple-threat action against Julia Hart and Sky Blue; Orange Cassidy puts the AEW International Title on the line against former champ Jon Moxley; and Ricky Starks and Big Bill have their hands full as they defend the AEW Tag Team Championships against not one, not two, but three teams, as FTR, La Faccion Ingobernable, and the Kings of the Black Throne come calling.
Elsewhere, 'Hangman' Adam Page and Swerve Strickland could well steal the show as they do battle in a hotly-anticipated Texas Death Match. There's similarly plenty at stake as the Golden Jets and the Young Bucks lock horns, with Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega having to split up if they lose, but earning themselves the Bucks' shot at the AEW Tag Team Championships should these Canadians be victorious. Finally, Full Gear is rounded out by the babyface trio of Sting, Darby Allin, and Adam Copeland taking on Luchasaurus, Nick Wayne, and Copeland's long-time best pal-turned-bitter rival Christian Cage.

AEW Full Gear 2023: What other matches are there besides the title defenses?
With six titles on the line at AEW Full Gear, there's still plenty of excitement away from these championship bouts. Most notably, there's Adam Page vs. Swerve Strickland in a Texas Death Match.
Having wowed at AEW WrestleDream last month - in a match which Swerve won - these two rivals once again do battle, but this time with a far more personal slant to the contest. With Strickland having broken into the Page household and tormented Hangman's young child, this feud has taken an entirely more heated turn in recent weeks.
In tag team action, AEW Full Gear 2023 will see the Golden Jets tandem of Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega taking on the Young Bucks. With brewing discord between Omega and the Bucks in recent weeks, one stipulation at play here is that Kenny and Jericho have to split up should they lose this match. On the other side of that, the Golden Jets will take Matt and Nick Jackson's shot at the AEW Tag Team Championships should the Canadian duo score the victory.
Finally, Full Gear features a six-man match where Sting, Darby Allin, and Adam Copeland will face Luchasaurus, Nick Wayne, and Christian Cage. Of course, Copeland and Cage have plenty of history together, having broken into the business alongside one another in the then-WWF before both having impressive singles runs with the nowadays WWE.
For the first time in AEW's history, Full Gear is not the final Pay-Per-View of the calendar year, with Worlds End set to shut things down on Staten Island just before the New Year.
And yet, as one of the Big 4 shows of the promotion, there's little reason to expect anything other than a stunner of a showcase of some of the best talents professional wrestling has to offer, with literally hours of enjoyment set to unfold over the eight-match card, 11 really if you count Zero Hour. Titles will be wrestled for, feuds will be decided, and in the end, more than a few new surprises will be revealed to fans in Los Angeles, as Tony Khan has already promised a major signing that will shake the fabric of AEW forever.
That's right, after making his debut for the promotion earlier this month, fans have been waiting with bated breath to see how the “Nature Boy” would handle himself when live wrestling is happening right in front of him and whether the 74-year-old would try to insert himself into the action in his bizarre, self-professed desire to literally die in the ring.
Fortunately for Tony Khan, who will likely have his eye firmly fixed on the Woooo! Energy drink personality for the entirety of the match from Gorilla, the match is filled out with some of the more grizzled professionals in the business, with Christian Cage and Adam Copeland likely being told to make sure Flair doesn't so any impromptu table spots that put his literal life in danger.
Though Orange Cassidy enters Full Gear as the reigning and defending AEW International Champion, he never actually beat Jon Moxley for the strap, with the leader of the Blackpool Combat Club holding the 1-0 lead in singles action thanks to his win at All Out back in Chicago.
Now granted, this match has a bit of an asterisk next to it because, in a perfect world, Moxley would likely be defending his title against a worthy challenger, OC or otherwise, but because he dropped his title due to a very real concussion in a singles match with Rey Fenix at Grand Slam, the entire lineage of the belt as has been thrown out of wack.
Fortunately, at Full Gear, fans will get to see if Cassidy can overcome the man who ended his title reign in the first place, a win that would decisively shut down any talks of his title belonging a few miles south-east in Anaheim with Mickey Mouse, or if Mox remains the main in AEW, with a chance to take the belt around the world as part of his occasional trips to New Japan Pro Wrestling? Though it may not garner all of the headlines, this might truly be the match to watch on the show.
For the third Pay-Per-View in a row, MJF is pulling double-duty at Full Gear when he goes toe-to-toe against The Gunns on Zero Hour for the Ring of Honor Tag Team Championships alongside brand new tag team partner Samoa Joe and again in the main event of Full Gear, when he takes on the leader of Bullet Club Gold, “Switchblade” Jay White.
Now to some, this strategy of double-dipping Mr. Friedman is a bad call, as they feel as though it cheapens his opponents in both matches, but thus far, the strategy appears to have worked out, and adding Samoa Joe into the action makes things all the more intriguing, as he could probably take care of The Gunns on his own in a two on one match if afforded an opportunity.
