Full Gear: MJF Wins AEW Championship with Help from William Regal

MJF won the AEW World Championship in the main event of AEW Full Gear, defeating Jon Moxley with a brass knuckle punch. The knuckles belonged to Moxley's friend and manager, William Regal, who turned on Moxley and turned heel by passing the knuckles to MJF. MJF's victory capped off a long story arc for MJF, who could be the future of the company… if he doesn't jump ship to WWE in the bidding war of 2024. You know what The Chadster is hoping will happen.

Welcome to The Chadster's live coverage of AEW Full Gear. As the only unbiased journalist in all of pro wrestling, The Chadster is here to give you his honest, objective opinion on tonight's PPV. And The Chadster's opinion is that it stinks! Tony Khan is booking this show for the sole purpose of RUINING THE CHADSTER'S LIFE, and The Chadster doesn't think that's fair at all!

AEW Full Gear Results: Jon Moxley vs. MJF

MJF entered first to a huge babyface pop for the main event of AEW Full Gear. Moxley wasn't booed during his entrance though, so he fixed that by giving the crowd the finger and wrestling like a heel. The crowd then chanted something very rude at Moxley. The Chadster frankly can't believe some of the language he's heard tonight, but this is what happens when you resort to trashy gimmicks like scissoring to sell tickets, Tony Khan. You're getting what you deserve!

A rabid crowd supporting babyface MJF in a match against heel Jon Moxley for the AEW Championship isn't something The Chadster ever thought he'd see, but The Chadster has come to expect Tony Khan to do literally anything to screw over WWE by producing compelling wrestling storylines that fans enjoy, spoiling the fans and undercutting all the work WWE has done to make wrestling safe and formulaic. This is the reason The Chadster has been unable to have sexual intercourse with his wife since before 2019, but somehow Tony Khan is allowed to just keep doing this, week after week, PPV after PPV. Doesn't anyone care about how this affects The Chadster?!

MJF gave it all he had, but it wasn't enough to overcome Moxley. So then he pulled the referee in front of Moxley to knock him out so he could cheat with the Dynamite Diamond Ring. But William Regal came out and MJF decided against it. Then Moxley accidentally knocked out a second referee so that no one was there to see him make MJF tap out.

As Moxley woke up the ref, Regal slipped Moxley his brass knuckles. MJF used them and got the pin, becoming the new AEW World Champion. In retrospect, Moxley should have seen this coming. Regal literally stabbed Triple H right in the back when he signed with AEW, so of course he would stab Moxley in the back as well. But Moxley also betrayed WWE, so he too got what he deserved. Hopefully, MJF takes the AEW Championship with him to WWE in 2024 and The Chadster can finally put this whole mess, and Tony Khan's weird obsession with The Chadster, behind him.
