AEW begins the final drive toward the Full Gear pay per view on tonight’s Dynamite.
AEW Champion Kenny Omega and Hangman Page will meet for a contract signing ahead of their title match on Saturday night.
Also tonight...Bryan Danielson vs. New Japan’s Rocky Romero...
FTR’s Dax Harwood vs. Pac.
AEW Women’s Champ Dr. Britt Baker, Jamie Hayter & Rebel vs. Tay Conti, Anna Jay & Thunder Rosa...
And Lio Rush & Dante Martin vs. Matt Sydal & Lee Moriarty.
Martin pinned Frankie Kazarian on last night’s Dark...thanks to a timely bit of outside interference by Rush.
Also on last night’s Dark, Sydal & Moriarty beat 2point0.
The Gunn Club beat Dark Order’s Evil Uno, Alex Reynolds & Colt Cabana. Austin Gunn surprised Uno with a rollup - and grabbed the top rope - to steal the pin. Austin Gunn still has a perfect record in AEW.
Ricky Starks & Powerhouse Hobbs beat Dark Order’s Alan 5” Angels & 10. Angels took the pin.
Thunder Rosa, Kris Statlander and Ryo Mizunami beat Emi Sakura, Jamie Hayter and Rebel. Rosa pinned Rebel. There was some post-match tension between Statlander and Ruby Soho ahead of their second round match in the TBS Championship Tournament.
Christian Cage, Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus beat Matt Hardy, The Blade & Isiah Kassidy. Jungle Boy forced The Blade to tap out to the Snare Trap.
Darby Allin pinned QT Marshall with the Coffin Drop.
Plus, Too Fast Too Fuego beat Nick Comoroto & Aaron Solo, who took the pin.
On last night’s NXT…
Pete Dunne pinned the North American Champion Carmelo Hayes in a non-title match. The end saw Johnny Gargano reach up from under the ring and grab Hayes’ foot. That distraction set up Hayes for the Bitter End.
Toxic Attraction beat Io Shirai, Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter. Gigi Dolin pinned Carter.
Shirai’s former tag team partner, Zoey Stark, confirmed on Tuesday that she suffered a major knee injury...and is now recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL and meniscus.
Getting back to last night…
Joe Gacy got a win over Boa via disqualification. This was what you’d expect until the lights in the arena started flashing. This apparently affected Boa because he grabbed Gacy with a choke hold and wouldn’t let go, leading to the DQ.
Kay Lee Ray pinned Sarray.
Solo Sikoa pinned LA Knight to win a 3-Way that also included Grayson Waller.
The Creed Brothers beat Kushida & Ikemen Jiro.
Xyon Quinn turned down an invitation from Elektra Lopez to join Legado Del Fantasma.
NXT’s War Games pay per view is now set for Sunday, December 5th.
Makeup and special effects artist Jason Baker told the news outlet Metro in the United Kingdom that he and Windham Rotunda - the former Bray Wyatt in WWE - are “starting a film at the end of the month.”
