Thirteen matches were contested at the event, including three on the "Zero Hour" pre-show. In the main event, Samoa Joe defeated MJF by technical submission to win the AEW World Championship. In another prominent match, Eddie Kingston defeated Jon Moxley in the Continental Classic final to become Triple Crown Champion, retaining the ROH World Championship and NJPW Strong Openweight Championship and winning the inaugural AEW Continental Championship. The event also saw Andrade El Ídolo's final match in AEW as his contract expired following the event.

Production

Background

Worlds End was held at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York on Long Island, marking All Elite Wrestling's first pay-per-view event to be held in New York state.

On October 25, 2023, it was reported that the American professional wrestling promotion All Elite Wrestling (AEW) had filed to trademark the name "Worlds End".[2] Later that same night on Dynamite, AEW announced that it would hold a pay-per-view (PPV) event titled Worlds End on Saturday, December 30, 2023, at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York on Long Island, marking the company's first PPV to be held in the state of New York. Tickets went on sale on November 3, 2023.[3]

Storylines

Worlds End featured professional wrestling matches that are the result of pre-existing feuds and storylines, with results being predetermined by AEW's writers. Storylines were produced on AEW's weekly television programs, Dynamite, Collision, and Rampage.

On the November 11 episode of Collision, AEW president Tony Khan announced the AEW Continental Classic (C2), a 12-man round-robin tournament similar to New Japan Pro-Wrestling's (NJPW) G1 Climax, to be held across episodes of Dynamite, Rampage, and Collision, starting from the November 22 episode of Dynamite, with the semi-finals (promoted as the League Finals) held on December 27 at Dynamite: New Year's Smash and the Championship Final held at Worlds End. Bryan Danielson announced his participation in the C2, despite his orbital bone injury.[4] Eddie Kingston also announced his participation and that his ROH World Championship of sister promotion Ring of Honor (ROH) and his NJPW Strong Openweight Championship would also be on the line in the tournament final. In addition to those two titles, it was also revealed that the winner of the tournament would become the inaugural AEW Continental Champion, with the three titles then being collectively held and defended under the American Triple Crown Championship banner.[5] In the League Finals at Dynamite: New Year's Smash, Kingston and Jon Moxley won the respective Blue League and Gold League Finals, thus setting up the Championship Final at Worlds End.[6]

At Dynamite: Grand Slam on September 20, MJF defeated Samoa Joe to retain the AEW World Championship. Also during that match, MJF's tag team partner Adam Cole injured his foot after he jumped off the entrance ramp when he came out to support MJF.[7] Cole subsequently was unable to defend the ROH World Tag Team Championship with MJF, who was scheduled to defend it during the Full Gear Zero Hour pre-show on November 18. Joe offered to be MJF's partner for the title defense on the condition that MJF would give him another opportunity at the AEW World Championship. MJF initially declined, but he eventually agreed after Joe saved him from a beatdown,[8] and they retained the title, although MJF suffered a minor injury.[9] On the subsequent episode of Dynamite, after Cole convinced him to keep his promise, MJF said he would defend the AEW World Championship against Joe that night, but Joe declined as he instead wanted to face a healed up MJF in the main event at Worlds End in MJF's hometown of Long Island, and MJF accepted.[10]

At WrestleDream, after Christian Cage retained the AEW TNT Championship against Darby Allin, Cage, Luchasaurus, and Nick Wayne continued their attack on Allin until Sting attempted to make the save, but he was also attacked. As Luchasaurus and Wayne were about to perform a con-chair-to on Sting, Adam Copeland made his AEW debut and saved Sting and Allin.[11] On the following episode of Dynamite, Copeland told Cage that he came to AEW to reform their tag team so they could have one more run together before retiring, but Cage rejected the offer.[12] This would lead to a match at Full Gear where Copeland, Sting, and Allin defeated The Patriarchy (Cage, Luchasaurus, and Wayne).[13] Copeland then faced Cage for the TNT Championship on the December 6 episode of Dynamite, but lost after Wayne's mother Shayna interfered and hit Copeland with the title belt.[14] On December 16 at Collision: Winter Is Coming, Copeland challenged Cage to a No Disqualification match for the TNT Championship at Worlds End,[15] and Cage accepted.[16]

At Full Gear, The Golden Jets (Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega) defeated The Young Bucks (Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson) to earn the latter's AEW World Tag Team Championship opportunity.[13] During Dynamite: Winter Is Coming on December 13, The Golden Jets called out champions Ricky Starks and Big Bill to invoke their title match for Worlds End, which was accepted.[17] However, two days later on December 15, Omega revealed he had been legitimately diagnosed with diverticulitis, thus taking him out of action indefinitely and canceling the match at Worlds End.[18] On December 23 during Collision: Holiday Bash, Jericho announced he would find a new partner for the championship match at an unknown date.[16] The following week during Dynamite: New Year's Smash, Jericho saved a returning Sammy Guevara from a beatdown by The Don Callis Family (Konosuke Takeshita, Powerhouse Hobbs, and Kyle Fletcher), with Starks and Bill subsequently coming out to attack Jericho and Guevara. Sting and Darby Allin then came out to help Jericho and Guevara clear the ring. Later, an eight-man tag team match was scheduled for Worlds End, pitting the team of the reunited Le Sex Gods (Jericho and Guevara) along with Sting and Allin against the team of Starks, Bill, and The Don Callis Family (Takeshita and Hobbs).[6]

Strong then hit a jumping knee strike to MJF and Wardlow delivered a powerbomb to MJF to close out the show.

Reception

Mike Malkasian of Wrestling Headlines gave the overall show an 8/10, saying that "the show was a rollercoaster and the opener, the TNT title match and the main event delivered the strongest. The rest of the card was fine, but underwhelming".[19]

Doc-Chris Mueller of Bleacher Report gave the show a C+, saying that "this PPV had a couple of really great matches and moments, but when compared to every other major event AEW has held, this one might be considered one of the worst. It wasn't a bad show, but there were so many things that felt overbooked, mediocre or just plain wrong that it was hard to stay invested throughout the entire thing. Kingston winning was the biggest highlight of the night, but Cage and Copeland probably came in a close second place. All in all, Worlds End was a down-the-middle PPV with a few memorable moments".[20]

John Canton of tjrwrestling.net gave the show a 7/10, saying that "the last three matches saved this show because I enjoyed all three of them a lot. Everything before that was just okay. Several of them were disappointing. That eight man tag team match with Sting barely featured him in his second last PPV match. They did honor him a bit after the match, but you could tell Sting was frustrated by that match. It was still mostly a good show. I just think compared to AEW’s other PPVs this year, this was perhaps their worst PPV of the year. Still a good show overall, but weaker compared to other AEW PPVs in 2023".[21]

Cody Galenzoski of Wrestling Republic gave the show a 3.5/5 saying that "AEW Worlds End 2023 was a huge success for AEW, a legit sell out of the Long Island arena. AEW Worlds End struggled to have a high quality first half of the show. The opener was entertaining but the rest of it wasn’t great. While being a 4 hour show, I can say that the second half was entertaining. It’s not great to say half of the show was of a lower quality than what we have seen this year. The show structure was very poorly done from the bigger picture, but the second half is what you should watch out of the show if you haven’t seen it. In 2023 alone, AEW has had far better PPV’s and this was not the strongest way to end off the year".[22]

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter rated the following matches: the Statlander vs. Nightingale match and the Battle Royal 2 stars, the FTW Championship match 3.75 stars, the eight-man tag team match, the No Disqualification match and the Continental Classic final 4.75 stars (the highest rated matches on the card), the Miro-Andrade bout 4 stars, the AEW Women's World Championship and the AEW World Championship matches 3.5 stars, the Swerve-Dustin bout 3.75 stars, the eight-man tag team 2.5 stars, and the TBS title match 1.75 stars (the lowest rated match on the card).[23]

Aftermath

The following episode of Dynamite began with Samoa Joe stating that he would be taking everything from anyone who tried to dethrone him for the AEW World Championship.[24]

Also on Dynamite, Adam Cole, Wardlow, Roderick Strong, Matt Taven, and Mike Bennett, now dubbed the Undisputed Kingdom, taunted MJF and stated that he would never be coming back. Cole also stated that it was a pleasure doing business with Samoa Joe, but said that Wardlow would eventually win the AEW World Championship and give it to Cole.[24]

Additionally, Chris Jericho chose Sammy Guevara as his new partner to challenge for the AEW World Tag Team Championship, which was scheduled as a Street Fight at Battle of the Belts IX.[25]
