On October 13, a photo was taken of Tony Khan clutching a piece of paper at the Jacksonville Jaguars game.
Fans zoomed in and enhanced the sheet of paper and the writing on it and deciphered that it was the card for AEW Full Gear 2021.
Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Tony Khan addressed the photo and fans believing he had accidentally leaked the card.
"I was doodling on my notebook and I saw a lot of people took notice of the notes in my notebook, which is pretty amazing because when you're walking around with full notes, you never think photographers are going to capture the small writing you've written down. I'm glad it wasn't anything more personal. It's funny that people run with assumptions on the internet these days. I've seen all these people jumping to conclusions that, 'oh, that must be the Full Gear card.' It is true, I announced that Kenny vs. Hangman is the main event that we've all been waiting for with Full Gear, it's going to be a huge pay-per-view, it is absolutely (booked). I just have notes and have been messing around with different ideas and playing around with stuff. You can even see, it's scratching around and written in pencil and been erased. I think it's pretty fortunate because it's gotten a ton of buzz and has gotten people wondering and people should be wondering. It creates more speculation and now I'll leave you with more questions than answers," he said.
If you zoom into Tony's notepad here, you might see this year's Full Gear card.. I could make up Jade vs Rosa, MJF vs Darby and Kenny/Hangman from it, there's Cole's name on it. Or maybe I'm imagining things--— surya (@Surya_KL_) October 13, 2021

While no matches have been made official for AEW Full Gear, Khan did recently say that Hangman Page, who won the Casino Ladder Match to earn a shot at the AEW World Title, will challenge Kenny Omega for the belt at Full Gear. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
