Possibility of future violent matches in AEW

Jon Moxley and Kenny Omega had an extremely violent match at AEW Full Gear in the main event of the show. Weapons such as chains, mousetraps and glass were used in the match. A lot of blood was shed as both competitors put their bodies on the line to become the victor. Ultimately, Moxley was victorious.

On Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez noted that after talking to people, it is doubtful fans will get to see a match like that for a long time. He thinks the impression was that owing to Jon Moxley really wanting to do that kind of match, AEW let him do it. While it might not be out of Jon’s system entirely, it is over for now.

One can never rule out another hardcore match from Jon Moxley, but it might be some time until we see him as we did in Full Gear. However, it seems his rivalry with Kenny Omega is far from over.

    I legit don’t even know why people are calling the match excessively violent.

    Most of the barbed wire was gimmicked, as was the glass.

    Compare the Sabu/Funk barbed wire match to this one. Look how these guys got out with just minor scrapes. Kenny’s gear wasn’t even damaged.

    I loved it. It reminded me of the old days. They should do more and more like it. Too many pissy wwe fans that have never seen a real hardcore match in their lives are not use to seeing this masterpiece.

    When your wife tweets out “WTF” during your match, you’ve crossed a line. The story will probably continue based on Kenny asking Mox “what were you going to do, chain wrestle with me?” They already have JImmy Havoc and Joey Jenella saying they want to use AEW as a way to show they can actually wrestle and not be reliant on weapons and blood. We’ll see how this goes forward.

    Also, do not believe a word of this article. Alvarez is hardly a reliable source

    Oh piss off with your “garbage” wrestling. I hope they scared off the “hardcore wrestling fans” if they were offended by that match.

    Did u watch the match? There were plenty of suplexes, etc. It wasn’t a japenese 1,000 light tubes of death-match. It was just a hardcore match the way they’re suppossed to be done

    while “Garbage wrestling” has no place in pro wrestling, but some people love it, and AEW trying to get the “Garbage wrestling” crowd with matches like this. but at the end of the day, they may have alienated the hardcore wrestling fans who aren’t fans of the garbage wrestling. wrestling is about the moves, the characters, the drama, etc, but “Garbage wrestling” is inflicting lots and lots of pain and misery and make each other kill each other with over the top wrestling weapons like barbed wire wrapped wood, tables, barbed wire ropes, glass, lots and lots of glass, flosurent light bulbs, etc,
