They’re a big deal. Titles are some of the most important things in all of wrestling and it means a lot for one to change hands. A wrestler getting their hands on a championship is the kind of thing that can alter a wrestler’s career trajectory in a very important way, especially if it is their first. That took place this weekend, as a few title changes took place on the same night.

There were three title changes on Saturday night at AEW Full Gear 2022. First up, Samoa Joe defeated Powerhouse Hobbs and reigning champion Wardlow to win the TNT Title. The win makes Joe a double champion, as he also holds the Ring Of Honor TV Title. Next, Jamie Hayter defeated Toni Storm to become the new Interim Women’s Champion. Finally, Maxwell Jacob Friedman defeated Jon Moxley to become AEW World Champion when William Regal turned on Moxley.
In addition, the following champions retained their titles:
- Death Triangle (Trios Titles)
- Jade Cargill (TBS Title)
- Chris Jericho (Ring Of Honor World Title)
- Acclaimed (Tag Team Titles)
The new champs should do well. Check them all out:
Opinion: This is the kind of night that a promotion needs to have from time to time, as there were multiple titles changing hands. You need to have a big night of change like that on occasion, just for the sake of keeping things fresh. AEW did well with Full Gear and now they have some new direction to take as they start rounding out the year. This was the way to go, and AEW made it work.
