Welcome to Ringside News’ live results coverage of AEW Fyter Fest, the first night of two special weeks.
Tonight’s show will feature some huge matches, the main event of which will be Cody Vs. Jake Hager for the TNT Championship. Cody’s open challenges have all gone well so far, but tonight he faces his biggest foe yet in the form of an old friend.
The AEW Tag Team Championships will also be on the line, as Omega and Page face Best Friends. This match was kind of thrown together, so I’m not expecting a title change tonight. Hikaru Shida will also defend her AEW Women’s Championship against Penelope Ford, meaning she’ll have to keep an eye on Kip Sabian also.
Of course, tonight also features two non-title matches in the form of Private Party Vs. Santana & Ortiz, and Jurassic Express Vs. MJF & Wardlow. It’s a tag team heavy show tonight, so if that’s your thing then get hyped.
We’ll have live results coverage here from 8 PM EST, so stay tuned and enjoy the show!
AEW Fyter Fest Night One opens with Le Champion, Chris Jericho, coming out in a Canadian-themed jacket for Canada Day, and joining the commentary team.
MJF comes out with Wardlow and he asks how many times he will have to beat Jungle Boy? He already gave him the best match of his career a month ago. So why is this match even happening? It’s not because Jurassic Express want a piece of him, it’s because the powers at be want to keep him down, but he’s MJF and he’s the greatest of all time.

We see the card for next week’s Fyter Fest. The week after that will be Fight For The Fallen, but I don’t think they said if it would be a PPV or just a themed Dynamite like this.
Taz comes out with Brian Cage and says that next week’s main event has been postponed. Moxley will now face Brian Cage at Fight For The Fallen, in two weeks. Taz says they’re not mad, they’re happy to wait. He says Moxley is at home, pretending he has Coronavirus, even though he’s tested negative twice. Moxley has a case of something: the chicken $hits. Mox is afraid of the machine, because he will beat his brains in and take the title from his dumb ass. July 15th, Fight For The Fallen.
