Darby Allin has stated that his match with MJF at Full Gear is his favorite bout he’s had in AEW.
Speaking on My Mom’s Basement, Allin noted that he felt ‘the pillars’ had to prove they could steal the show with their November 13 pay-per-view opener.
Reluctant to give MJF the satisfaction, Allin said:
“In a weird way, I know it sounds crazy, but it has to rank number one. In a weird way, only because I don’t like to give Max that credit. The whole thing with that is going into the match, I had a lot to prove mentally because there’s all these new faces coming to AEW. We had to prove to them, the audience, that the pillars, so to speak, are going to steal the show. We did just that. So it’s good not to get lost in the shuffle in these times.”
Many fans have praised Allin and MJF for the match online since the show, and the bout was awarded 4.5 stars in the Wrestling Observer. The highest Wrestling Observer star rating of the night was 5.5 stars, which was awarded to the AEW World Championship match between Kenny Omega and Hangman Page.
