AEW Full Gear’s main map kicked off with MJF taking on Darby Allin in the battle of two of AEW’s mainstays.
Upon entering, MJF forced Justin Roberts to say that MJF can beat Darby with a takeover. The match began with a chain wrestling, proving that Darby can actually wrestle.
Darby resumed the game after performing a dive while running through the ropes. Darby went to get the coffin but MJF moved and Darby’s back crashed into the ring apron. MJF played as if he had injured his knee while working on Darby’s back. MJF tried a piledriver on the middle rope but Darby countered the stunner. Darby couldn’t get the pin because of his back pain.
Darby tried a code red but MJF went extinct and bombarded him in an attempt to pin down. MJF then locked the Sharpshooter / Scorpion Death Lock but Darby managed to free himself. Moments later Darby locked the number four to work on MJF’s bad knee. MJF escaped and hit a piledriver headstone on Darby in the ring apron. At the same time, MJF again injured his knee.
There was an incredible streak of pinning attempts with around a dozen total attempts from both men leading to fans giving them a standing ovation. Darby sent MJF a coffin on the ground and another in the ring, but MJF put his knees in the air. Shawn Spears and Wardlow came out to interfere but Sting took them out with bat and chair hits.
Back in the ring, MJF hit Darby with a kick to the face but MJF collapsed from the pain in his bad knee. MJF grabbed Darby’s skateboard and gave it to Darby for him to use and be disqualified. Darby refused and gave it to the ref, but MJF used the diamond ring and then pinned Darby after performing an inside headlock as he said.
