AEW Full Gear was not short on battles for Championship Gold, and it was finally time for the battle for the AEW Women's Championship between Toni Storm and Jamie Hayter. The two former friends knew each other so well and that showed itself throughout the match, as they countered each other's moves and knew to anticipate each other's finishers and signatures. This was easily one of the best matches of the night, and at one point it looked like despite Rebel and Britt Baker interfering Storm would still retain, but then Hayter took command and took down Storm for the pin and the win, making Jamie Hayter your new Interim AEW Women's Champion.
After Storm and Hayter went back and forth a minute they went all-in, exchanging holds and trying to gain an advantageous position.

They taunted each other and then Storm hit a drop-kick and then connected with a hip throw that sent Hayter reeling towards the barricade.

Storm picked up Hayter and connected with some chops against the post, but on the third one Hayter dodged it and she slammed her hand right into the post.

Hayter dug her feet into Storm in the corner and then hit several mean looking chops on Storm. A shoulder tackle followed and she went for a cover but Storm kicked out.
Hayter kept up the attack and put her foot on Storm's neck against the ropes, and then she locked in a hold in the middle of the ring.
