Fleet Files #16: Fight Me

The penultimate week of AEW’s Full Gear build is here and with it, some work to do. Though this has been one of their most cohesive routes to PPV thus far, some big matches remain unmade. This week, that almost certainly changes, as AEW’s blockbuster roster finalizes its path to what on paper, could be the promotion’s best line-up yet. It’s been a monumental year for AEW and after a somewhat shaky start, they’ll look to make it three hits in a row with Full Gear.

NOTE: Friends, this week’s Fleet Files will be bare-bones, as I’m currently on vacation. Don’t know if I’ve mentioned that anywhere by the way so yeah, I’m on vacation. Feels important to keep this project rolling though so even while on vacation, I’m going to keep the league table updated. Thanks folks, I’ll be back next week…you know, from vacation.
