Here’s what happened after the November 19 AEW Full Gear pay-per-view went off the air.
In the main event of the show, Jon Moxley defended his AEW World Championship against MJF, who had cashed in his Casino Ladder Match poker chip ahead of time for this bout.
In a shocking turn of events, William Regal turned on Jon Moxley, sliding MJF brass knuckles which helped MJF ultimately score the victory and win the AEW World Title.
The show ended with MJF celebrating his title win on the ramp, notably without Regal, who had walked to the back alone soon after MJF’s victory.
After the cameras stopped rolling, the rest of the Blackpool Combat Club, Bryan Danielson, Claudio Castagnoli and Wheeler Yuta, entered the ring to join Moxley.
As Moxley was recovering from the brass knuckle shot, the group explained to Moxley what just happened, as he had his back turned when Regal handed MJF the weapon.
Moxley was initially angry, punching the mat after hearing about the betrayal.
He then hugged his factionmates before his entrance music played.
MJF made an appearance during the post show media scrum, which you can read more about right here.
