According to the latest reports, All Elite Wrestling’s upcoming PPV event Full Gear 2021 will take place at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Fightful Select reported that the Target Center sources confirmed to them that the show will be held at the venue. There were words going around that Full Gear will be held in Minneapolis, and now it seems like they were true.
However, AEW is yet to officially confirm the location and venue of Full Gear. But it is likely that they will confirm it in the upcoming weeks with tickets also going for sale in the first week of October. Earlier, Tony Khan announced that St Loius will no longer hold AEW Full Gear as initially announced.
Initially, AEW Full Gear was supposed to take place on November 6. However, later the company decided to push its date by a week, and now it will take place on Saturday, November 13. This was reportedly done to avoid clashing with UFC 268 PPV which will also take place on November 6.
UFC 268 will feature Welterweight Champion Kamaru Usman vs Colby Covington 2 fight in the main event. The show will air from Madison Square Garden in New York and will also feature a high profile lightweight bout between Justin Gaethje and Michael Chandler. A clash with UFC 268 would have definitely affected PPV sales for AEW Full Gear.
Talking about the pro-wrestling at Target Center, WWE also runs shows at the venue frequently with their most recent show at the venue was the July 30 edition of SmackDown.
