Jon Moxley vs Kenny Omega Announced for AEW Full Gear
All Elite Wrestling has announced that Jon Moxley vs Kenny Omega match will now take place at AEW Full Gear 2019 PVV on 9 November.
Jon Moxley was scheduled to face Kenny Omega at AEW’s All Out 2019 PPV show. But days ahead of the show, the highly anticipated match was canceled when Moxley was diagnosed with an MRSA staph infection in his elbow and had to undergo a surgery. He was then replaced by PAC who went on to defeat Kenny Omega in his AEW debut.
AEW, however, continued to build-up to the match between Moxley and Omega. Kenny Omega berated Moxley for being careless before such a high profile match. Moxley continued to compete in NJPW and indie scene after his AEW debut and Omega made a point of it. It was also announced that the match will be rescheduled for a later event.
Now, AEW has confirmed that the match for AEW Full Gear 2019 PPV before the tickets for the show go on sale this Friday, 6 September. Full Gear will take place on 9 November at Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland. This will be the third PPV show for AEW and their fifth overall. Full Gear will also feature the finals of AEW World Tag Team Championship Tournament.
AEW hosted their first PPV show, Double or Nothing on 25 May this year. Their next two shows, Fyter Fest and Fight for the Fallen were non-PPV in the US. The second PPV, All Out, was once again highly successful and gave them a good momentum towards their TV debut on TNT on 2 October.
Moxley is next scheduled to face Shawn Spears at 9 October episode of AEW weekly TV show in Boston. While Kenny Omega will also feature in the AEW’s debut on TNT on 2 October in a 6-man tag team match with the Young Bucks against AEW World Champion Chris Jericho and his mystery partners.
