AEW’s Fyter Fest 2020 has reworked right into a two-night occasion that may happen on each Wednesday, July 1 after which the next week on July eight and followers have already got their predictions.
Whereas Tony Khan and co. opted to stream the occasion on BleacherReport.com final 12 months totally free, this 12 months it will be happening on the promotion’s common televised time slot at eight p.m. on TNT.
Seeing as there’s solely a restricted period of time for every program with commercials consuming at a few of the repeatedly scheduled present, we’re realistically solely going to get about 90 minutes of motion, which most likely means some eight matches an evening, together with promos, monologues, and all different types of pro-wrestling goodness.
So what are the AEW ‘Fyter Fest’ predictions wanting like now?
There are 5 complete match ups which can be confirmed for the two-night spectacle, which implies there are a whole lot of shock bouts we’ll simply have to attend and see if they are going down, as the primary evening is barely every week away.
They’re as follows:
- Jon Moxley vs. Brian Cage (World Title)
- Hangman Web page & Kenny Omega vs. Greatest Buddies (AEW Tag Crew Title)
- Cody vs. Jake Hager (AEW TNT Title)
- Hikaru Shida vs Penelope Ford (AEW Ladies’s Title)
- Orange Cassidy vs. Chris Jericho
Not too long ago, Jericho had ambushed Orange Cassidy and beat him to a pulp with a bag of blood oranges. I do know, puns and symbolism listed here are completely sensible, and whereas Jericho is a fan favourite and simply has probably the most title recognition within the AEW out of all its stars, do not be shocked if the group queues up a giant win for the O.C. Anticipate the match to be a darn good one and one of many highlights of Fyter Fest.
Jon Moxley made a splash within the WWE, so AEW followers had been excited to welcome the no-nonsense pro-wrestler into the fold in his new stomping grounds. His match-up towards the beefy Brian Cage ought to have the makings for an unforgettable contest. Seeing because it’s in one of the best curiosity for the AEW to construct its “authentic” stars, i.e. expertise who made a reputation for themselves principally below the AEW banner.
Though Brian had signed a developmental contract with the WWE, he by no means turned an enormous star with the group, so for a lot of AEW followers, he is “one in every of their very own.” AEW die-hards appear to suppose that the group is queuing up a title run for Cage, however I additionally suppose it is solely potential that Moxley retains the title. Cage is unquestionably a high expertise, however I believe they’ll keep on with leaving the World Championship Title to the person previously generally known as Dean Ambrose… however that relies upon.
The Greatest Buddies have been a whimsical spotlight of AEW leisure, and their promos with Orange Cassidy are large time fan favorites. I count on an O.C. win and I additionally suppose that the group goes to have some new tag staff champs on their fingers. Then I might foresee a budding rivalry between Hangman Web page and Kenny Omega beginning after they lose their belts, and the AEW might get some mileage out of that storyline for a bit.
Everybody loves a superb “betrayal” story, in spite of everything.
Hikaru Shida is the AEW Ladies’s Champion for a purpose. She oozes charisma, has the in-ring abilities to carry the thrills, and simply seems to be darn good with that belt. The difficulty is, the identical may very well be mentioned for Penelope Ford. Keep in mind what I mentioned in regards to the World Title potential altering fingers between Jon and Brian? Nicely I believe the end result of this match might have critical implications for the bout between the 2 males.
I do not suppose that the AEW will change all titles throughout these occasions, I believe that some quantity of consistency shall be held. If Moxley beats Cage and manages to carry the World Title, then count on Hikaru to lose hers. Nonetheless, I believe if Hikaru beats Penelope, it is a good signal that Brian Cage is topped the brand new Ring King within the AEW.
Jake Hager aka Jack Swagger, is a heck of a expertise and a welcome addition to the AEW roster, however for a lot of, except for Jericho, Cody Rhodes is the face of the group. He seems to be like a Road Fighter villain, significantly, there’s one thing undeniably cool and virtually…alien about him. I do not see the AEW having Cody Rhodes quit his AEW title, as nice as Jake is.
Nicely, these are my predictions for the 2 evening occasion, what are a few of yours? Are there any matches you suppose will certainly occur that are not on the confirmed card?
