Report: AEW Being Investigated By Maryland Commission Over Lights Out Match At Full Gear

The Maryland State Athletic Commission is investigating AEW.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, former WCW announcer Chris Cruise contacted the commission in regards to the "Lights Out" match that Kenny Omega and Jon Moxley had at the Full Gear pay-per-view in Baltimore on November 9.

According to the report, Cruise had asked about the commission's rules on blading and whether or not a match is allowed to continue if a wrestler is bleeding, intentionally or unintentionally. The commission told Cruise, that it "prohibits wrestlers from deliberately lacerating themselves or their opponents, or introducing human or animal blood into the match, none of which happened in that match." The commission did have a presence at the event and had a doctor assigned to be at Full Gear and were conducting a formal investigation.

The match between Omega and Moxley was notorious for its use of weapons throughout the match. Moxley brought a baseball bat covered in barbed wire and Omega brought everything else, including a broom wrapped in barbed wire that was used on Moxley's back, broken glass, a panel filled with mouse traps and even a barbed wire filled spider web. But in the end, it was Moxley who got the win thanks to him exposing the ring and hitting a variety of moves on Omega.

Fightful had live coverage of the entire event, which can be seen at this link.
