The event marks the third time AEW has broadcast from the venue. The last time AEW was in the Target Center for AEW Full Gear, Hangman Page defeated AEW World Champion Kenny Omega to win the title, which remains Omega’s last appearance in AEW before taking time off to rehab for numerous injuries. The event also was the site of one of Junior Dos Santos’ few professional wrestling appearances. Current AEW Champion CM Punk was responsible for another notable moment, defeating Eddie Kingston in a brief and bloody match. The venue was also home to a divisive lumberjack match that saw Matt Hardy defeat Orange Cassidy on the “AEW Rampage” before Full Gear.
Opened in 1990, the Target Center is the second oldest sports arena in the nation behind only Madison Square Garden.
