The Chicago swing continues and this time around we have the short form show. There are a few matches announced this week, including the Confirmed Time Period vs. the Best Friends and Riho vs. Britt Baker. That makes for a good start to the show and we should be in for a fun night. Let’s get to it.

We’re back in Chicago, as AEW really likes coming here. It’s also just before the start of Thanksgiving weekend, so this is going to have a bit of a special feeling. Bryan Danielson and CM Punk are both in action this week so it certainly feels like a big show. Now just make that work. Let’s get to it.

We’re fresh off of Full Gear and the next big thing, probably for their upcoming Clash Of Champions style special, is Hangman Page defending the World Title against Bryan Danielson. That will be more than enough to carry the shows for a bit, but we should be in for some other stuff this week. What other stuff? Well probably some AEW stuff. Let’s get to it.

We’re done with Full Gear and Hangman Page is FINALLY the AEW World Champion. To say this is a long time coming is an understatement but now we get to see where things go from here. That could be in a variety of directions but this week is all about the big celebration. We have a long way to go before Revolution next year so let’s get to it.

The SmarK Rant for AEW Full Gear 2021 – 11.13.21

Hey, big thanks to the pretty significant amount of people who not only bought the show through my Fite affiliate link, but also signed up for Surfshark today and gave me about a year and a half of free subscription time in the process.  That’s a lot of trips to Finland!

Live from Minneapolis, MN

Your hosts are Jim Ross, Excalibur & Tony Schiavone

It’s time for what is likely going to be one of the best AEW shows in history as the card is stacked. AEW has shown that they can put together an awesome card and then deliver on the potential. I’m looking forward to more than a few things on the show and that is a great feeling to have. Let’s get to it.

Housekeeping note first!  Someone was asking about the Fite affiliate link for ordering the Full Gear PPV, and here it is:

https://www.tkqlhce.com/click-9028762-13868768?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.fite.tv%2Fwatch%2Faew-full-gear-2021%2F2pa5z%2F

I should also note that if you’re outside of the North American region, you can sign up for AEW Plus on Fite for $5 a month, and get all the PPVs for $20 each instead of $60 or whatever they charge nowadays.  I actually subscribe to it for the times when I’m traveling through the European regions, as I often do on Friday nights and occasionally Wednesdays.  Here’s the link for that:

And hey, if you ARE in Canada or the US and you’re wondering how to virtually travel to a European country like me so you can sign up for AEW Plus (or the WWE Network if that’s your thing) might I recommend Surfshark, which I use for all my VPN needs?  Here’s the link to that, and in fact Surfshark currently has a Black Friday deal of 83% off and 3 free months when you subscribe for a year:

Enough paying bills, on with the show…

It’s the go home show for Full Gear but we still might get some changes, or at least a hard sell, for the show. Dynamite did that very well this week but maybe a bit more could make it even better. I’m not sure what to expect here, though Matt Hardy vs. Orange Cassidy in a lumberjack match is certainly a thing. Let’s get to it.

It’s the go home show for Full Gear and that means things might actually be interesting around here. AEW knows how to stick the landing on their way to a pay per view and there is still some stuff that they need to cover. Odds are they’ll hit a lot of those points this week so let’s get to it.

It’s another live show this week and that could be a good thing. The big story this week is a face to face showdown between CM Punk and Eddie Kingston, meaning it’s time to get the popcorn ready. The talking alone should be great to hear and you can all but write in the Full Gear match from here. Let’s get to it.

We are less than three weeks away from Full Gear and things have been shaken up a bit. Jon Moxley, who was in the semifinals of the #1 contenders tournament, has decided to go to rehab for alcohol issues, which leaves a big hole in the brackets. We should get a replacement tonight though and that could be interesting. Let’s get to it.

It’s another big night as we have a potential classic on our hands with Bryan Danielson vs. Eddie Kingston. If that isn’t enough, we also have Britt Baker vs. Abadon in a street fight and Dante Martin vs. Matt Sydal Part III. Rampage benefits a lot from the shorter time frame so they should be good to go again here. Let’s get to it.
