VIDEO: AEW countdown special and updated card for Full Gear

Originally published at

Coming out of the go-home edition of Dynamite, All Elite Wrestling has updated its card for Saturday’s Full Gear event in Baltimore, Maryland.

Prior to Dynamite, the promoted added an AEW women’s title match involving champion Riho defending the match against Emi Sakura and a pre-show match between Dr. Britt Baker and Bea Priestley.

Additionally, there has been a three-way match for the AEW tag titles added with champions Scorpio Sky & Frankie Kazarian defending against Rey Fenix & Pentagon Jr. and Private Party. The final team was added when Private Party defeated Dark Order on Wednesday’s broadcast from Charlotte, North Carolina. They also announced Shawn Spears will face Joey Janela stemming from an angle shot on AEW Dark last week leading to Janela chasing off Spears and Tully Blanchard on Wednesday’s episode after Spears defeated Brandon Cutler.

Finally, a stipulation has been attached to the AEW title match with Cody vowing to never challenge for the title again, if he loses to Chris Jericho.

The promotion has released an excellent countdown special for the pay-per-view, which is available below along with the updated card:

*Chris Jericho vs. Cody for the AEW title
*Jon Moxley vs. Kenny Omega in a ‘Lights Out’ match
*Scorpio Sky & Frankie Kazarian vs. Pentagon Jr. & Rey Fenix vs. Private Party for the AEW tag titles
*The Young Bucks vs. Santana & Ortiz
*Riho vs. Emi Sakura for the AEW women’s title
*PAC vs. Hangman Page
*Joey Janela vs. Shawn Spears
*Dr. Britt Baker vs. Bea Priestley on the Buy-In pre-show at 7 pm eastern

If you questioned why Cody said there are no faces and heels you need to watch this Countdown special. I’m halfway through but it gave you every reason to cheer for Santana/Ortiz over the Bucks and Moxley over Omega. These are real people with real stories very much like the UFC Countdown shows
