AEW Fyter Fest: Night One Preview
Fyter Fest is finally here! With the uptick in COVID-19 cases in Florida, where AEW television is filmed, some fans were skeptical all the announced matches would go on as scheduled. But everything seems to be going off without a hitch for Night One of Fyter Fest. AEW’s two night event kicks off Wednesday night with a stacked card from top to bottom. The card features two main events, which each match being for a championship.
Cody will defend his TNT Championship against Inner Circle big man, Jake Hager. Elite member’s Kenny Omega & “Hangman” Adam Page go up against Best Friends for the AEW Tag Team Championship. Hikaru Shida will also defend her AEW Women’s Championship against Penelope Ford. Inner Circle members, Santana & Ortiz, will go to battle with Private Party. And finally, Jurassic Express will look to finally shut up MJF as they face him and Wardlow in a tag team grudge match.
Cody vs. Jake Hager For TNT Championship
When Cody became the first ever TNT Champion last month in May, he said he would be a fighting champion and he has been just that. Cody’s match against Jake Hager at Fyter Fest will be the fourth time he has defended the championship in 6 weeks. That’s pretty incredible, especially if you think about the unpredictable times we are living in. Cody is one of AEW’s top stars and he is proving he deserves that spot with these great title defenses. But Jake Hager will be his toughest challenge to date.
Since debuting in AEW on the inaugural episode of Dynamite, Jake Hager has been the enforcer the Inner Circle faction. But despite being in that group, he has not really had a significant single’s feud to sink his teeth into. This looks to be the feud that changes that and all it took was a little water. At last week’s press conference for the Fyter Fest championship match, Hager’s wife threw water in the face of Cody and just like that, that show of disrespect made the feud a little more personal.
Cody versus Jake Hager should be a good technical match without the flips and kicks of normal AEW matches. It will be a good old school wrestling match with two veterans of the game trying to outmatch each other. But with Cody’s reign as champion only being over a month old, I see him pulling out the win in a long, grueling match.
Kenny Omega & Hangman Page vs. Best Friends For AEW Tag Team Championship
Kenny Omega & “Hangman” Adam Page are two of the best singles wrestlers in AEW. So when they were paired together, it wasn’t much of a shock that they became AEW Tag Team Champions. Since winning the tag titles in January, Omega & Page have overcome every challenge thrown their way and have put on amazing match after amazing match. Their next test is Best Friends, who actuallu defeated Omega in a tag match back in April when Page was off television.
This match will be great as most AEW tag team matches are but this is not the Tag Team Championship match most fans want. While we all know this match will be fun with the teams involved, we also know Best Friends aren’t on The Champs’ level. There are multiple other HUGE tag teams in AEW that are better suited to dethrone Omega & Page when the time is right. So after a lengthy, fun, energetic match, Omega & Page leave Fyter Fest still champions.
