Official AEW Fyter Fest Full Card Preview
With the dust finally settling from All Elite Wrestling’s first pay-per-view event, DOUBLE OR NOTHING, the promotion’s hotly anticipated follow-up, FYTER FEST, airs for free on the B/R Live streaming service (Click Here) this Saturday, June 29th, 2019, at 7:30 PM ET, emanating from the Daytona Beach Ocean Center, in Daytona Beach, Florida. After DOUBLE OR NOTHING, battle lines have been drawn in the sand with a stacked line-up at FYTER FEST.
In his debut match with AEW, all eyes will be on the unhinged Jon Moxley as he squares off against the equally unpredictable “Badboy” Joey Janela. After DOUBLE OR NOTHING’s main event between Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega concluded, Moxley caused quite the commotion as he attacked the exhausted competitors (and the referee of the bout), leaving the entire roster on edge. Moxley has a hunger to show the sport what he’s capable of now that he’s got the gloves off; while Moxley’s history shows he takes calculated risks, he’s also been known to have a short fuse. Joey Janela seems undeterred and has a reputation for playing with fire. With Moxley vs. Janela, expect the match to be lit as the combustible elements face off for the first time at FYTER FEST.
Nick and Matt Jackson of the Young Bucks, along with “the Cleaner” Kenny Omega, will be throwing down with the Lucha Bros (Penta El Zero M and Fenix) and Laredo Kid. 2019 has seen an incendiary rivalry between the Bucks and the Lucha Bros, with the Bucks recently losing the AAA World Tag Team Titles to Penta and Fenix at the Verano de Escandalo event in Merida, Mexico. In the next chapter of this saga, both teams have added their friends to the fight, with Omega joining his Elite partners, and the buzz-worthy, rising star Laredo Kid, the current AAA World Cruiserweight Champion, aligning with the Lucha Bros. Expect to see plenty of highflying and innovative tag spots as both teams continue to try to one-up the other.
One of the most intriguing matches of the night is between the “American Nightmare” Cody and another competitor set to make his AEW debut, Darby Allin. At DOUBLE OR NOTHING, Cody faced brother Dustin Rhodes in a riveting pro wrestling match that had spectators on the edge of their seats. On that night, AEW EVP Cody proved he would stop at nothing to begin this new era and see his vision materialize. Daredevil Darby Allin, on the other hand, sees this as the perfect moment to capitalize with the maximum amount of exposure on a major league level.
AEW EVP Nick Jackson booked a four-way match with “Hangman” Adam Page, Jungle Boy, Jimmy Havoc, and MJF, picking things up right where they left them during the DOUBLE OR NOTHING Casino Battle Royal. Page was the final man standing in the battle royal, earning a shot at the AEW World Championship against Chris Jericho at ALL OUT on August 31st in Chicago. But ALL OUT is still a ways off, and “Hangman” Page is looking to keep his momentum going into his match against Jericho, while Jungle Boy, Jimmy Havoc, and MJF are all attempting to be the dark horse that stops Page in his tracks.
After battling in a six-man tag at DOUBLE OR NOTHING, the “Fallen Angel”, Christopher Daniels, and veteran CIMA (current president of Oriental Wrestling Entertainment), will compete in singles action. The two men have a long history and are very familiar with one another’s seemingly endless repertoire. With each having decades of experience on the mat, this is a classic pick ‘em. More than anything, this is a matter of personal pride, with both ring generals wanting to out-wrestle—physically and mentally—the opponent.
The main card will also feature female competition, with Yuka Sakazaki vs. Riho vs. Nyla Rose in a triple threat match. The women showed the world they are dynamic in-ring warriors during DOUBLE OR NOTHING. Riho and her team had their hands raised at DOUBLE OR NOTHING, but Sakazaki and Rose are also looking to get a taste of their first victory in an AEW match; FYTER FEST could be the night.
FYTER FEST will kick things off with the THE BUY IN preshow.
With the winners advancing to ALL OUT for an opportunity at a first round bye in the AEW World Tag Team Championship Tournament, a three-way tag is booked with the Best Friends (Trent Beretta & Chuck Taylor) vs. SoCal Uncensored (Frankie Kazarian & Scorpio Sky) vs. Private Party (Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy).
And in a match with “Hardcore” stipulations, Alex Jebailey, the organizer for CEO, will step into an AEW ring to fight the very real threat that is Japanese pro wrestler Michael Nakazawa.
