The fallout from Full Gear will have a drastic effect on AEW with potential new champions and challengers. In this article, we will look at five potential outcomes from AEW Full Gear.
#5 MJF defeats Chris Jericho to join the Inner Circle
MJF and Chris Jericho are undoubtedly two of the most entertaining and charismatic performers in AEW. The duo is set to clash at Full Gear to determine if MJF has what it takes to join the Inner Circle.
They have gone through song and dance routines, a town hall meeting, and in-ring promos. They finally got physical on Wednesday’s episode of AEW Dynamite.
During an interview segment at the beginning of the show, Jericho said that MJF lacked a killer instinct and wasn’t able to get the job done. This enraged MJF, who got into a scuffle with Jericho at the commentary booth, after he defeated Sammy Guevara and Ortiz in a tag match
If MJF wins at Full Gear, he will become the newest member of the Inner Circle
The match at Full Gear will be a fun match littered with interference and shenanigans. Despite the Inner Circle's presence, MJF will secure the victory against Le Champion to force his way into the faction.
At this point, Jericho is beginning to feel a little tired and overused. Since losing the championship earlier this year, he has seemed aimless and lost. His feud with Orange Cassidy was fun at first but it went on for far too long and did little to elevate anyone involved when it was over. Therefore, having Jericho go away for a while after a loss at Full Gear will do him and the overall product a world of good.
As for MJF, joining The Inner Circle and asserting himself as the new leader will make for great television. He and Guevara have great chemistry both in and out of the ring, which could lead to a fantastic feud.
Positioning MJF as the leader of the top heel faction in the company would put him at the top of the mountain as AEW’s most prominent antagonist, which is precisely where he belongs.
