The card for this Saturday’s AEW Full Gear pay-per-view event was finalized after Wednesday’s Dynamite, which is where the promotion officially announced Cody Rhodes and PAC vs. Andrade El Idolo and Malakai Black in a tag team match.
PAC and Andrade as well as Rhodes and Black have been feuding against each other for the last few months.
Dave Meltzer noted on today’s Wrestling Observer Radio that AEW had been planning to book a fatal 4-way bout with all of these wrestlers. However, AEW President Tony Khan changed it to a tag team match.
“We’ve known that one for weeks…this was not originally on the card. Originally I think they were gonnna do a four-way with those four, and then Tony Khan decided to make it into a tag team program, which would’ve been when they did the first angle.”
Andrade was scheduled to wrestle PAC at All Out, but Andrade had to pull out of the show and they later worked their first match on Rampage.
