Eight-man tourney set for AEW World title shot, finals at Full Gear

November's Full Gear pay-per-view has its first match: the finals of an eight-man tournament to determine the next no. 1 contender for the AEW World title.

The single elimination tournament was announced on Wednesday's Dynamite along with the first three competitors: Kenny Omega, Jungle Boy and Ray Fenix. It's assumed the tournament will play out solely on Dynamite.

Omega's former partner Hangman Page was on commentary during the announcement and was taken aback by Omega's inclusion, walking away from the broadcast booth after it was announced.

The next world title match is scheduled for AEW's first anniversary show on the Wednesday, October 14th Dynamite featuring champion Jon Moxley vs. current no. 1 contender Lance Archer.

The second-ever Full Gear is set for Saturday, November 7th and will likely be at Daily's Place in Jacksonville, Florida. Last year's event was held in Baltimore, Maryland, and was co-headlined by Moxley vs. Omega in a lights out match and then-World champion Chris Jericho vs. Cody.
