Very strong for what I would consider an "In Your House" PPV. Or at least that was the way I was looking at it when I went into it. But pretty much everything was good. I really enjoyed every match and Yuka Sakazaki is going to be be someone I really think I will enjoy going forward.

I cannot really tell you at this point which match I liked the most, as I liked the entire show as a sum of its parts. But still, two solid outings by AEW in a row. Keep it up.

Fyter Fest Show Notes!

GO!

+ Pre-show! +

~ BIKINI GIRLS! This show gets a 10 out of 10!

+ Private Party vs. SCU vs. Best Friends +
~ I don't think I've ever seen a "triple threat" tag match before...
~ Frankie Kazarian is a very impressive...
~ So the Bikini Girls are just going to stand there?
~ It is wrong that the Private Party remind me of the Street Profits?
~ And they're flying all over the place!
~ The Power of Friendship? What is this? My Little Pony?
~ Everyone seems to be hitting swinging/spinning DDTs...
~ Shooting Star Press!
~ What the hell was that high pitched scream?
~ So he's wearing a silk vest with coattails?
~ Why is the commentator ripping on Daytona?
~ & the Best Friends get the win...Nice.

~ Oh hey...its the Dark Order...& I don't really care...
~ And those "black outs" went for too long...
~ So...they are taking the piss out of Fyre Festival right?



~ NO! Don't take the Bikini Girls away! And we now have mannequins?

+ Leva Bates vs. Allie +
~ HEY! Its Blue Pants! I mean Leva Bates...as a sexy librarian? Okay...
~ Wow...that librarian gimmick is really, REALLY bad!
~ YAY! Its Allie! (AKA Bayley done right) & she looks great in that outfit!
~ WOAH! Who made Allie's ring attire? I mean I'm not complaining but its
cut fairly high on her cheeks isn't it? 11 out of 10!
~ So this is kind of cool seeing Allie vs. Blue Pants...two wrestlers I
really like...& not just because they are lovely to look at. Seriously
you could take either of these ladies home to meet your mother &
she would be impressed...
~ "The Shushing" is really, REALLY annoying...
~ Hey...its Brandy Rhodes...watching a TV from a proper angle...
~ That outfit is very snug on Allie...I approve. 12 out of 10!
~ Allie has a tongue ring...that's nice to know...
~ So I know these ladies are trying their best but this match has
killed the energy built up by the triple threat tag match...
~ "Aggressive" Allie makes me happy in pants...
~ And Allie gets the win with the BSE...YAY for Happy Allie Bunny!

~ And the bands have pulled out? Okay...
~ I wish I had hair like Kenny Omega...

+ Michael Nakazawa vs. Alex Jebailey +

~ And I'm worried about this match...
~ Ewww! Baby oil...
~ Oh...I get it...its a gimmick match playing into the video game
fighting tournament...I mean its not for me...but the crowd is
into it...
~ Hey! A table...
~ Wow...that spear through the table outside was cool...
~ What are those? It isn't lego...
~ And Nakazawa gets the win...in a stupid match that was stupid...
but it was harmless & the crowd enjoyed it.

~ Hey...it Jim Ross...

~ Oh...and if anyone out there has a problem with the AEW putting
all their "goofy & weird" shit on the pre-shows...then just skip the
pre-shows in future.

Problem solved.

Anyway...moving on!

+ Main Show! +
~ There is a different commentary team for this event...
~ Running down the card...
~ Stage looks really good. Clean & crisp & not too busy...
~ Is it me or does the ring seem slightly more bouncy than normal...
~ The pyros are a nice touch...

+ Christopher Daniels vs. Cima +
~ Ultimo Dragon reference!
~ The commentary is already better than Double Or Nothing...
~ Whenever I hear the name Goldenboy I can't help but think of
that terrible manga/anime of the same name...
~ Can I just say its really refreshing to watch some wrestling
that is not made/produced by the WWE.
~ Both guys are looking incredibly sharp...
~ BLUE THUNDER BOMB!!!
~ And Cima gets the win a very good main card opener...

Yay! the ladies are up next!

+ Riho vs. Nyla Rose vs. Yuka Sakazaki +
~ Riho is such a cutie pie...but why does she dress like a
porcelain doll?
~ So...I have some "thoughts" on Nyla Rose which I may post
at a later date. I'm not going to get into it here & now.
~ And its the Genie Girl...who is also incredibly cute...just
don't tell Seth Seth I said that okay.
~ Female ref!
~ So...do we ever acknowledge that Nyla Rose was actually
born a man at any point in time? I mean tell me if I'm wrong
but this seems a little unfair doesn't it? I mean at least Nia
Jax & Awesome Kong were born women.
~ Double Matrix Escape!
~ Double Suplex!
~ Double Camel Clutch! Make it stop!
~ Hey! Yuka is "rope walker" Nice!
~ Fuck You! Nah Fuck you! Nah Fuck You! Nah Fuck you! Nah Fuck you!
~ These Japanese ladies look so tiny in the ring...
~ 619 by Riho! I think I'm falling in love!
~ I saw a botch but I don't care...
~ Wow...that top rope knee strike was pretty impressive...
~ That double catch & pin attempt was cool...
~ 10 minutes remaining!
~ And Riho Cutie Pie gets the win! Yay!
~ Its amazing how expressive the Japanese ladies are...its almost
like they don't need to talk to tell a story.

~ Guest commentator!

+ MJF vs. Jungle Boy vs. Jimmy Havoc vs. Adam Page +
~ So MJF is just EC3 set on "complete bastard mode" right?
~ HA! Their mother's swallow! Nice!
~ So Jungle Boy reminds me of Kamandi (Look it up!)
~ Luchasaurus is pretty cool...its a shame he didn't have a match
on this card...
~ Jimmy Havoc looks like he could be Rosemary's boyfriend...or
the lead singer of an industrial metal band...
~ So does anyone remember the "Smoking Guns"? Adam Page reminds
me of them.
~ Actually forget EC3...MJF looks more like Matt Striker...
~ Jungle Boy has some slick moves...
~ Nice sharpshooter by Hangman Page...
~ 10 minutes remaining...
~ And Hangman Page gets the win by pinning Jimmy Havoc...and
this was a really fun match with everyone getting a chance to shine.
More of this please AEW!

+ Cody Rhodes vs. Darby Allin +
~ So I have no idea who Darby Allin is...although he looks like
he could form a tag team with Jimmy Havoc...
~ And Goddamn look at Brandi in that outfit! Yummy! Oh...and Cody
is there as well I guess...
~ Hey! Raven use to sit in the corner like that Darby...
~ Jesus...Darby Allin is built like a bean pole...
~ He went through the ropes...what the hell?!
~ Listening to J.R talk about Darby Allin is kind of cringe...
~ 10 minutes remaining...
~ FINGERS! Pete Dunne approves!
~ 5 minutes remaining...
~ I like the narrative of Darby targeting Cody's hand & fingers...
~ That "Coffin Drop" was fucking insane...
~ The body bag stuff was kind of dumb...you put them in the bag
once you've pinned them...
~ And a time limit draw with a "nearly there" finish...that was really cool...
~ Man...this was a huge match for Darby Allin...
~ And Tye Dilli...I mean Shawn Spears is here...and that chair shot
was pretty nasty. I know they said the chair was "gimmicked" but it
still looked pretty nasty...Cody is okay right?

+ Fenix, Pentagon & Laredo Kid vs. Kenny Omega & the Young Bucks +
~ The Street Fighter cosplay is pretty cool...
~ Round 1 Fight!
~ Can we get Allie cosplaying as Cammy from Street Fighter?
~ Pentagon looks great in red & black...
~ And they are flying everywhere already...
~ Double Northern Light!
~ And everyone goes flying again...
~ These guys are fucking nuts...let me just throw you nearly into
the crowd yeah?
~ Superkick Party!
~ HADOKEN!!!
~ This is insane!
~ 10 Minutes Remaining!
~ One-Winged Angel!
~ And Kenny & the Young Bucks get the win...and that match was
just insane....and a lot of fun to watch.
~ And Kenny & Pentagon are having a chat...

& the main event is...

+ Joey Janela vs. Jon Moxley +
~ No Penelope Ford tonight? Damn!
~ Its so great to see Jon Moxley looking excited about wrestling
again. You made the right decision Mox.
~ And we're in the crowd already...
~ Here...let me give you a...leg? HA!
~ And Mox is bleeding already...
~ And that barbed wire chair looks nasty...
~ Keep breaking the tables guys...
~ I bet dealing with that barbed wire is easier than dealing
with the WWE creative team & writers. BOOM!!!
~ Hey look...a ladder...
~ And more broken tables...
~ More barbed wire...
~ And I'm glad there isn't any shit in that bucket...
~ And hello thumb tacks...
~ The fact Moxley took off his shoes & socks has me cringing...
~ And I'm cringing! You sick fuck indeed...
~ This feels like a purging process for Mox...
~ And Mox hits "The Paradigm Shift" to finish Janela off...and that shot
of Moxley spitting out a thumb tack was fucking cool.
~ And Omega attacks Moxley...and I'm so keen for the actual Omega/Moxley
match.

Final Thoughts:
Honestly its just great to be able to watch some wrestling that doesn't
make me bitter & angry. AEW is like a breath of fresh air...and I want
to keep breathing it.

I scored this event an 8...but really my score doesn't matter because I
just enjoyed watching it. Sure there was some goofy shit on the pre-show
but its better there than on the main card...which was solid to great across
the entire board.

Bring on the next AEW show!

I'll admit the pre show was pretty bad, besides that triple threat tag team match, that was really good, the latter 2 matches i could have done without. The main show was great though.

Would of expected them to sell out considering the hype and that this is their second. Guess AEW are just really shit at marketing. It's their second show ffs.
Just because there is high demand doesnt mean every single show is going to sell out, Fyter Fest was never really looked at as one of the big main shows, ofcourse it isnt gonna sell out, same with fight for the fallen, a charity event. But everyone knew All Out was the next real big show.

And like i said above i do agree with you, the pre show was bad, atleast the last 2 matches were bad, the nakasowa or however you spell his name and that gamer dude jebaily or something, terrible dumb match, same with the libraion stuff, hated it, and i love video games lol.

Main show was great though, if they just never included those two matches entire show would be alot better

Does every show have to sellout for the AEW to be considered
a success?

On what scale are we grading success here?
Short answer is no, every show does not need to sell out, and just because they dont doesnt mean the demand isnt there, Fyter Fest and Fight For The Fallen are not big/main shows, ofcourse they arent gonna sell out. And even though they didnt and wont, that doesnt take away from the huge demand there was for All Out when tickets went on sale, same with Double or Nothing. There is a undeniable audience for AEW and it shows, they could have sold out a 130.000 stadium for the show (All Out) if they wanted. Though they didnt know that, even so they probably wouldnt go for a stadium like that anytime soon, its smart to lower your expectations.

TNA was WWE's closest competition for years and most their shows were out of the Impact Zone. So, even if they aren't on WWE's level right now, it's still very impressive what they are doing by selling out a couple of big PPVs and they exceeded expectations sales wise for this show. It isn't to say they can't improve on things, like find the right balance of their BTE style comedy and keeping it serious and fine-tuning things like production and etc, but the start they are on is enough to take note and clap.

Exactly, and it speaks volumes about AEW that Vince has gone as far as to hire Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff to run Raw and Smackdown respectively, getting the help of his former competition to help fend off and maybe beat the new compeition, its literately WWE WCW and ECW vs AEW.

And as we saw on Raw, Heyman has already had a pretty big impact on the show, its already an improvement and there was even a 10% increase in viewers, which is great news for them. AEW has already stepped up, if Raw was any indication then this is gonna be one hell of a war. When AEW finally comes to TV on TNT and Smackdown goes to Fox, thats when things will really start to pick up.

That seems fair.

I just hope they make enough coin to keep the organization going
& continue to put on the kind of shows like Double Or Nothing &
Fyter Fest.

And its funny you mention Impact Beavie Beavie because part of
me wants to see a AEW vs. Impact style event...although it is most
likely not on the cards.

Of course if I had my way every wrestling company Worldwide would
form a "business alliance" & stick as many needles as possible into
the WWE.

As far as "the War" goes...the WWE will have to show some incredible
improvement to bring me back to actually watching their product...
and frankly the AEW is just more exciting because its brand new &
offers something truly different.

According to WWE shills if AEW isn't selling out then they aren't doing shit, which is ironic.

There really isn't any. It is just is a way for WWE shills to shit on AEW while hating on the product for little to no reason.

Oh...Okay.

So its like...

"The AEW didn't sell out the venue for their latest show! THEY SUCK!!!"

"But WWE numbers are lower than they have been in years."

*Puts fingers in their ears & starts screaming LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA!!!*

"Yeah...nice "talking" with you."
