Haris KruskicContributor IJune 27, 2019


All Elite Wrestling is back Saturday with Fyter Fest, live from Daytona Beach, Florida. It's the promotion's first event since the well-received Double or Nothing on May 25. The strength of that show has the wrestling world buzzing about what AEW might do next.

Here is how to watch Fyter Fest and three things to pay special attention to.

3 Questions to Be Answered

Who Wins the 4-Way Match?


One of the bouts on the card is between four wrestlers who all received time in the spotlight during Double or Nothing. There are a lot of directions AEW can go with this one, featuring Adam Page, the Casino Battle Royale winner and No. 1 contender for the inaugural AEW World Championship, hardcore legend Jimmy Havoc, rising star Jungle Boy and top-tier heel MJF.

Continuing to build Page as one of the top stars of the company or adding to the red-hot heat MJF garnered during DoN are two possible outcomes. But we might see Havoc or Jungle Boy go over if AEW would like to build the profile of another roster member early in its existence.


Is This Darby Allin's Time to Shine?

It came as a bit of a surprise when AEW announced Cody's opponent at Fyter Fest would be Darby Allin, a relatively unknown talent who debuted four years ago on the independent circuit.

Allin loves to put his body on the line and, in the words of Vice, has a "predilection for self-destruction." Expect him to showcase that in the most high-profile match of his career.

If this promo is anything to go on, we might be witnessing a star in the making:

How Wild Does the Jon Moxley-Joey Janela Match Get?

Jon Moxley's in-ring debut for AEW is certainly one highlight of Fyter Fest for viewers excited to see the former WWE star once again. With his new-found creative freedom and Moxley's knack for being more hardcore than what we came to see from the Dean Ambrose character, fans are eager to find out how far he's willing to take the revived gimmick.

Put him up against a wrestler like Joey Janela, who is known for death matches and also wants to break out as a high-profile AEW talent, and we could be in for a gripping, potentially bloody showdown. A match like this will allow Moxley to showcase his ruthlessness and help to differentiate his WWE and AEW career paths.
