All Elite Wrestling’s Full Gear PPV was originally set to take place on Saturday, November 6th inside Chaifetz Arena in St. Louis, Missouri, but Dave Meltzer reported on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Full Gear will now be taking place one week later, which is November 13th as AEW would have faced strong competition from the UFC’s 268 Event at Madison Square Garden in New York City, where UFC Welterweight Champion Kamaru Usman is set to face Colby Covington in a rematch.
Meltzer also mentioned on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that he still doesn’t know the new location of the Full Gear Event, but according to rumors the new location is in an arena in the Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota area. Dave Meltzer also added that AEW didn’t confirm nor deny the new location, but they will still be facing competition on November 13 as they will go up against college football and the UFC’s Fight Night Event, with Max Holloway facing Yair Rodriguez in the main event.
Dave Meltzer then noted that Jon Moxley will likely be pulled from NJPW’s Battle Of The Valley as the event will be taking place on the same day as AEW’s Full Gear PPV.
