AEW FULL GEAR “BUY-IN” PRE-SHOW RESULTS
The event kicks off with a special one-hour “Buy-In” pre-show starting at 7pm Eastern Time / 4pm Pacific Time live via the official AEW YouTube channel and other various official social media outlets.
Watch the AEW Full Gear “Buy-In” pre-show below.
“Buy-In” Pre-Show Is Underway
We are several minutes into the pre-show now, which thus far has primarily been footage from the Countdown to AEW Full Gear special that aired earlier this week.
With just under 40 minutes remaining in the “Buy-In” pre-show, we are still watching the Countdown to AEW Full Gear special, which has now transitioned to the story leading into tonight’s AEW World’s Heavyweight Championship match, with Chris Jericho defending against Cody.
We switch to a live shot inside the arena where the announce team of Goldenboy, Taz and The Excalibur check in and introduce the video package for tonight’s AEW Full Gear “Buy-In” pre-show match.
With that said, we see the video package telling the story behind tonight’s pre-show match in the AEW women’s division between Pittsburgh’s own Dr. Britt Baker and Bea Priestley.
Dr. Britt Baker vs. Bea Priestly
Now it’s time to head to the squared circle for the first time this evening here inside the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland, as it’s time for our lone AEW Full Gear “Buy-In” pre-show match.
Dr. Britt Baker and Bea Priestley make their respective ring entrances, the bell sounds and here we go with our first bout of the evening.
Every time Baker gets some offense going, Priestley tucks her tail between her legs and runs for cover. She gets caught in Lockjaw submission from Baker briefly but escapes.
After a cheap shot, Priestley takes over the offensive control in the match. She snatches Baker up in a submission hold while Baker lays on the ring apron and Priestley yanks away at her neck from the floor.
Back in the ring, Priestley continues to dominate the action against the Pittsburgh dentist. Baker is starting to show signs of life, as she hits some hope-spots. The two hit dueling lariats at the same time. Both are slow to get up.
Again, Priestley takes over control of the offense until finally Baker fights back and ultimately catches her in her Lockjaw submission finisher. Priestley fights it off at first, but Baker sinks it in again and this time Priestley taps. Your winner by submission in our lone “Buy-In” pre-show match — Dr. Britt Baker.
Winner: Dr. Britt Baker
After The Match:
Once the match ends, Baker celebrates and leaves while Priestley remains in the ring. Unfortunately for her, she was still there when out of nowhere, Awesome Kong and Brandi Rhodes come out on the stage.
The two make their way to the ring and the fans explode inside the Royal Farms Arena. Brandi and Kong enter the ring and they have a knife. No lie. Kong is holding a knife in her hand. She talks to Brandi and then hits a spinning back-fist that levels Priestley.
Now Brandi and Kong talk about the knife again, with Kong starting to have a crazy look in her eyes. Brandi kneels down and grabs a handful of Priestley’s hair. Kong reaches down with the knife and slices some of her hair off. She rubs the hair on her face, seeming to enjoy it, and then wraps the hair around her waist like a title belt. Kong and Brandi stand tall as we shoot to another video package.
The pre-show wraps up with another video package focusing on what the announce team just informed us will be the opening match on the AEW Full Gear pay-per-view broadcast — The Young Bucks, Nick and Matt Jackson, versus Santana and Ortiz from The Inner Circle, as well as the introduction of Jim Ross to the announce table for the PPV commentary team.
AEW FULL GEAR RESULTS (11/9)
The All Elite Wrestling pay-per-view broadcast kicks off with the AEW Full Gear Cold Open Video Package that was released via the official AEW YouTube channel on Saturday afternoon. Check it out below.
After the cold open is out of the way we shoot live inside an absolutely decked out, jam-packed Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland, complete with a beautiful AEW Full Gear pay-per-view arena design and production set-up.
The announce team, including Jim Ross, who was introduced near the end of the AEW Full Gear “Buy-In” pre-show live on the broadcast, formally welcome us to the show and it’s time to go straight to the ring for our first PPV bout of the evening.
The Young Bucks vs. Santana & Ortiz
The Inner Circle duo of Santana and Ortiz make their way down to the ring, as do AEW EVP’s and top tag-team contenders Nick and Matt Jackson — The Young Bucks.
Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson, The Rock ‘N’ Roll Express, are also at ringside for this opening tag-team bout. The bell sounds and here we go as the action immediately gets underway.
As the match develops, Nick Jackson is isolated in the ring, with Santana and Ortiz utilizing quick tags to keep fresh guys on Nick. They are focusing much of their attack on the leg / knee of Nick, as well.
Finally, Matt Jackson gets the hot tag and he is fired up, taking out any and everything that moves. Matt gets some big spots that lead to some near falls, however after a couple of minutes, The Inner Circle bad boys are once again in complete control of the action.
We see a big Street Sweeper spot off the top rope after the ring announcer informs us that 15 minutes has gone by in this contest. The Young Bucks hit a crazy double-team high-spot that garners a “Holy Sh*t! Holy Sh*t!” chant from the AEW fans here in Baltimore.
Now, Nick Jackson is the legal man. He hits a move or two, all-the-while limping badly, before tagging Matt back in. Matt hoists Santana up for The Meltzer Driver, however when Nick goes to springboard off the ring apron with the ropes, his bad knee gives out and he collapses to the mat.
Matt goes over and puts Nick up on the top rope and now he hoists Santana up in the air in a Death Valley Driver position. Santana ends up breaking free and tagging in Ortiz. The fresh Ortiz comes in and talks trash to Nick, who also tags in. Nick spits his gum in Ortiz’s face. Ortiz picks it up and puts it in his mouth. Now he spits it back at The Young Buck.
Nick Jackson, bad knee and all, starts fighting off both Santana and Ortiz by himself with super kicks, before selling the leg afterwards. The ring announcer tells us that 10 minutes remains in the allotted time for this opening tag-team contest. As he makes the announcement, Santana and Ortiz hit a big double-team spot on Nick.
Santana and Ortiz exchange tag and now they hoist Nick up for the Street Sweeper. They hit it! 1-2-3. It’s over! Santana and Ortiz from The Inner Circle just handed The Young Bucks, Nick and Matt Jackson, yet another loss in the AEW tag-team division. A clean win for Santana and Ortiz here at AEW Full Gear. Highlights of the match are now being shown and analyzed by the AEW Full Gear announce team.
Winners: Santana & Ortiz
After The Match: Sammy Guevara, Rock ‘N’ Roll Express Brawl
Once the match is over, Sammy Guevara “The Spanish God” of The Inner Circle makes his way down to the ring with a cell phone, as apparently he is video blogging this.
Guevara joins fellow members of The Inner Circle, Santana and Ortiz, in the ring as they stand over The Young Bucks. Guevara pulls out a sock filled with baseballs.
As the trio gets ready to deliver unnecessary post-match punishment after their victory, The Rock ‘N’ Roll Express hit the ring to make the save. Ricky Morton hits a crazy dive through the ropes and a blockbuster-style cutter on the top-rope on one of The Inner Circle members.
The fans in Baltimore absolutely exploded for the big Ricky Morton spots. He’s still one of the best natural baby faces in the pro wrestling game, even in his senior years .. and the All Elite Wrestling fans are letting him know exactly that as they shower the tag-team legend with a “You Still Got It! You Still Got It!” chant to end the segment.
AEW Full Gear Updates
The announce team, which is lead by the legendary Jim Ross, breaks down some of the action still to come here tonight at AEW Full Gear.
The commentary crew lists the matches that are still to come, noting Moxley-Omega will take place after every match on the show, as they will turn the lights out and let the unsanctioned fight play out.
Next up, however, as J.R. and company inform is, is a singles match here at AEW Full Gear…
PAC vs. Hangman Page
We head back to the ring as “The Bastard PAC” appears across the big screens at the entrance stage and PAC’s theme music hits. Pyro and fireworks explode as “The Bastard PAC” makes his way down to the ring.
Now Hangman Page’s awesome music hits the loud speakers inside the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, fireworks and pyro goes off again and the “Hangman” heads to the squared circle for our first singles bout of the evening here at AEW Full Gear.
The two slug it out to get things going, with the fans immediately breaking out into loud “Cowboy Sh*t! Cowboy Sh*t!” chants as the match starts to develop a bit. PAC is taking over the offensive control in this one.
Several minutes have gone by, with PAC hitting a number of high spots and delivering a ton of punishment in what has been a one-sided beat down for a large part of this contest, in favor of “The Bastard.”
The announcers point out that PAC is ranked number two and Hangman Page is ranked number three in the new official AEW Rankings, so a win here will be huge for either guy going forward. Meanwhile, Page is finally getting in some offense after a big dive through the ropes onto PAC on the floor.
PAC ends up taking back over the offensive control in this one. Things continue like this all the way up until the finish.
After escaping a gruesome submission from PAC that looked like somewhat of a Russian Leg-Sweep position, but gnarlier, Hangman Page ends up pulling off the “W” literally out of nowhere with a pin.
Winner: Hangman Page
Shawn Spears (w/ Tully Blanchard) vs. Joey Janela
The lights in the Royal Farms Arena go off. The arena is pitch black other than cell phone lights now. Some music starts playing and out comes “The Chairman of AEW” Shawn Spears, accompanied by the legendary WWE Hall of Famer of the Four Horsemen faction, Tully Blanchard. Also out to the ring is his opponent for tonight, Joey Janela.
The bell sounds and here we go. Early on, Janela gets some shine time, although it isn’t long at all before Spears is using dastardly old-school pro wrestling heel tactics, complete with Tully being quite an active presence at ringside in terms of having an affect on the action in the ring due to his interferences and distractions.
Spears punches away at Janela in the corner. He climbs up the ropes and keeps punching him. Now he’s messing with his hair, yanking on it and pulling it. He’s messing with the top turnbuckle, as well.
Now Spears goes back to work on Janela. Moments later, Spears catches Janela in a Boston Crab-like submission that looks dangerous for Janela momentarily, however eventually he escapes. Janela is firing up now with punches.
Janela is picking up the pace in this one, as he hits a nice dive onto Spears on the floor before returning to the ring and getting in some more spots. Spears cuts his run short with a big shot. Janela rolls Spears up out of nowhere, but Spears kicks out. Spears rolls to the floor and Janela hits another suicide dive onto him through the ropes.
The two quickly bring the action back to the ring, where Janela delivers a couple of big punches and a suplex for another near fall. Now Spears fights back. He removes the turnbuckle that he untied earlier.
The referee, who is distracted by trying to re-attach the removed turnbuckle, turns his back to deal with that while Spears and Tully Blanchard take advantage of the situation, blasting Janela with a spiked piledriver on the floor. Spears brings Janela back into the ring and nails him with his C4 finisher. 1-2-3. It’s all over.
Winner: Shawn Spears
Backstage: Kip Sabian Introduces Penelope Ford
After the match we shoot backstage at the Royal Farms Arena, where we have an interview segment with Kip Sabian.

With that said, in walks Penelope Ford, who kisses Sabian. Sabian talks about being bad and bringing some sexyness into AEW. Ford says the interviewer is boring her and says let’s go. They walk off.

After the long, drawn-out formal pre-match ring introductions for this, our first championship contest of the evening, the bell sounds and the action immediately gets underway as J.R. and the announcers discuss the official AEW rankings for the tag-team division and how this match could shake up everything.
Meanwhile, the fast-paced action and high spots are starting to unfold in sequence as The Lucha Bros are firing up now. The B-More fans are a pro-Pentagon & Fenix group, complete with “Ole! Ole! Ole!” chants and “Lucha!” chants as the decorated duo continue to take it to Private Party’s Marq Quen.
Quen finally blasts Pentagon and tags out to SCU’s Scorpio Sky because his partner Kassidy was still selling a spot from The Lucha Bros previous sequence.
A big springboard cross body by Fenix onto Sky nearly gets the three count The Lucha Bros want to capture the AEW Tag-Team Titles from SCU. Sky tags Kazarian and then hoists him up for an assisted DDT off the top-rope to a seated Pentagon for a close near fall that is broken up.
Mark Quen tags in, Fenix tags out. Quen hits a wild Pele-style kick to everyone in sight before Kassidy comes in and grabs his foot and launches him twice for big spots on Kazarian, who is now isolated in the ring. A huge Shooting Star Press nearly gets Private Party the 1-2-3 to win the titles, however Kazarian somehow managed to kick out at 2 and 1/2.
Private Party sets up Gin ‘N’ Juice, however when one of them runs over for the hurricanrana into the Stone Cold Stunner from the other member, Kazarian, who had the move scouted, saw it coming and avoided it. Sky enters the ring and the two hit a double-team spot on the Private Party member for the pin fall victory. SCU retains the titles with the win.
