AEW's Full Gear show was full of great moments, but one match went a bit awry.
At the post-show media scrum, Tony Khan mentioned that Dax Harwood was rocked during the match and Cash Wheeler finished it up for him. We've learned that there's actually some truth to that beyond the storyline aspect of it.
Fightful Select was told by AEW sources that Dax Harwood was either knocked out or nearly knocked out about ten minutes into the match by Rey Fenix, and was sidelined for a good portion of the remainder of the match. Rey Fenix has been known to work stiff in the past, and some talent on the roster took issue with him not checking up on Harwood after the match.
We're told originally Harwood was supposed to factor into the finish, playing up that the illegal man got pinned. As of now, we don't have an update on his condition or if he's cleared.
