Below are a couple of top AEW Full Gear news stories, involving MJF and Swerve Strickland:
• MJF defeated Jay White in the main event of the Full Gear PPV to retain the AEW World Championship. MJF has now held the Title for one full year.
WrestlePurists is reporting that MJF suffered multiple injuries at Full Gear:
“According to sources, MJF hurt his hip during his match vs Jay White and had to have his hip popped back in after the show.
He was also said to have banged up his shoulder.
MJF is not expected to miss any TV time, but the current plan is for him to be featured in a non-wrestling capacity while healing up.”
Sean Ross Sapp later confirmed this report.
• At the AEW Full Gear 2023 pay-per-view, Swerve Strickland defeated “Hangman” Adam Page in a Texas Death Match, where both men bled profusely.
Strickland paid tribute to the late Bray Wyatt during this match, by wearing pants similar to what Wyatt wore as The Fiend character.
