AEW Full Gear 2021 Preview - Triple Threat POV

Posted by Dallas Allsopp Friday, November 12, 2021

Welcome to another edition of Triple Threat from Smark Out Moment, where three of us get together to discuss three questions based on one big topic going down in the week of professional wrestling.

This week, Dallas Allsopp, Greg Coleman and Matt Morgan preview AEW Full Gear 2021.

Full Gear 2021 promises to be another special event in AEW history. But what do we think will transpire?

Question 1: Which non-title match are you most looking forward to on the show?

ALLSOPP: Honestly, I’m really looking forward to Eddie Kingston getting a pinfall victory over CM Punk. The Best in the World cannot reign supreme forever, therefore a win for Kingston not only makes him look strong, but allows Punk to move towards his character turning heel.

COLEMAN: Full Gear’s card is absolutely stacked! This has the potential to top All Out, which was excellent. There are a lot of choices to pick from, but for me, it’s CM Punk vs Eddie Kingston. The promos these men exchanged on Rampage added a must see element to this match and gave this contest a greater story for happening. This match isn’t just about Kingston interrupting Punk, it’s about 15 years worth of hurt and raw feelings that Kingston has felt for Punk, and Punk’s still present lack of respect for him. I believe Bryan Danielson and Miro will be the best of the non-title matches, but I can’t wait to see how the Punk vs Kingston match plays out.

MORGAN: I am really looking forward to MJF taking on Darby Allin. I’ve appreciated the storytelling that has taken place between MJF and Allin over the past couple of weeks. Allin and MJF have both been portrayed as mainstays of the company and future stars, which is great to see. I have also enjoyed how Allin has refused to give in to MJF’s taunting and mind games. I have a feeling that MJF and Allin will put on a great match. I also think that this match may further the growing tension between Wardlow and MJF in some capacity, which would be great to see in its own right.

Question 2: Will Britt Baker once again retain the AEW Women’s World Championship, or will AEW pull the trigger with Tay Conti and have her dethrone the Doctor?

COLEMAN: Short and simple answer here... Britt Baker retains. Tay Conti is good, but she won’t be the one to dethrone Baker. I expect Baker to be AEW Women's World Champion going into 2022.

MORGAN: Although I am a fan of Tay Conti, I cannot see Britt Baker losing the AEW Women’s World Championship at Full Gear. Baker has been booked as a strong champion, and I don’t think Conti has the momentum needed to take the title off of Baker. At least not by the time that Full Gear happens.

ALLSOPP: Tay Conti is a star of AEW’s women’s division, but there is no way in hell that she should defeat Britt Baker. The Doctor is the legitimate champion that the division needs, and in spite of how I’m going to sound like a broken record here, I expect Anna Jay to turn on Conti and cost her the match.

Question 3: Will Hangman Adam Page defeat Kenny Omega to become the AEW World Champion?

MORGAN: I think Kenny Omega will beat Hangman Adam Page this weekend. I know that Page is incredibly over right now, however, I have a feeling that AEW will opt for a rematch between Bryan Danielson and Omega to take place for the AEW World Championship before Page gets his chance to become champion.

ALLSOPP: No. And nor should he. The money for AEW is in the chase for Hangman Adam Page to defeat Kenny Omega. Omega retaining via dastardly means would piss fans off so much, and give Page even more reason to chase Omega. Let’s crown Page at a more high profile event.

COLEMAN: The Kenny Omega vs Hangman Adam Page feud has been building for 2 years. During that time, Omega has turned heel and become the most dominant champion in AEW’s short history. Page has become one of the most beloved and over babyfaces in AEW’s short history. The story writes itself. It’s Page’s time. The same way it was Sting’s time when he beat Ric Flair at The Great American Bash 1990. The same way it was Stone Cold Steve Austin’s time at WrestleMania 14 when he beat Shawn Michaels. It’s Page’s time to become AEW World Champion. No need to build more, no need to let it marinate. Just pull the trigger and push Page to the next level. Page leaves Full Gear as AEW World Champion!

Those are our thoughts on the issue, but where do you stand?
