AEW Full Gear still being planned for Minnesota

The location for AEW Full Gear is getting closer to finally becoming confirmed.

As was first mentioned in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter two weeks ago, Fightful reported Monday that according to internal plans within AEW, the November 13th pay-per-view is indeed set for Minneapolis, Minnesota. Dave Meltzer said as of a week ago, holding the event in the Minneapolis/St. Paul region was the working plan.

The venue is still unknown, but the Target Center is available as of now.

Fightful reported that many members of the AEW roster were set to appear at November 13th's The Big Event in New York City, but needed to be pulled. Instead, they will appear on Sunday, November 14th with AEW going "above and beyond" to make it right to event promoters.

Full Gear was originally scheduled for St. Louis, Missouri, on November 6th, but due to heavy combat sports competition from both UFC and top boxer Canelo Alvarez, AEW decided to move the date instead. The Chaifetz Arena, however, was booked on the new date.

It's unknown whether Rampage, still set for the Chaifetz Arena the Friday before Full Gear, would still be held there. Again, the Target Center is available.
