AEW Fyter Fest Predictions

Okay, full disclosure, I've been very busy, I have a lot going on to not go into to detail, so I haven't been able to write much so this preview is very, very late.  Today I'm discussing the second event ever of All Elite Wrestling, which is free to watch, Fyter Fest.  So let's get into the matches.

Hardcore Match
Michael Nakazawa vs. Alex Jebaily
Okay so this match has been set up on BTE (Being the Elite) for months now, and I get it.  The story is Matt Jackson has a gripe with Kenny Omega signing Nakazawa, and instead of telling him, Matt has let it haunt him for months, to the point where the idea for this match came to pass.  Jebaily, not a fully trained wrestler, is the creator of the annual CEO (Community Effort Orlando) Fighting Game event, has a history with Nakazawa from past CEO events.  This won't be much of a match, it's the comic relief match.  If you've seen Nakazawa work, his gimmick is he uses too much baby oil every match to slip away from opponents.  Nakazawa will win thwarting this plan of Matt Jackson's to get rid of Nakazawa, so that will probably continue on BTE.
Triple Threat Tag Team Match
Best Friends vs. SoCal Uncensored(Scorpio Sky and Frankie Kazarian) vs. Private Party

This is going be a telling match, the stipulation is kind of much though, the winner advances to a chance at a first round bye in the future tag title tournament.  Let me reiterate that, you don't get a first round bye for winning, you advance to a match to later earn a first round bye.  Regardless of the stipulation, this match should be a coming out party for Private Party (see what I did there).  The other teams are already established they don't need this win.  It's going to be a great match, and I can't wait to watch it.
Kylie Rae vs. Leva Bates
Okay there isn't a lot of build to this match as a whole, the librarian gimmick thing is clearly a joke directed at WWE creative, and that's fine.  I hope AEW doesn't make it a regular thing to "make fun" of WWE, but regardless, the build to this match is both librarians (Peter Avalon being the other) interrupting Kylie in a pre show promo at Double or Nothing, and that's it.  Leva will most definitely win here, Kylie looks like she'll be taking pins for a little while to put people over and that's fine, they can build her back up later.  Leva is a great wrestler and I hope that this gimmick doesn't limit her in the ring.
Triple Threat Match
Yuka Sakazaki vs. Riho vs. Nyla Rose
This should be an interesting match up because of the clashing styles, Sakazaki and Riho are more fast moving, technical, and Nyla is all power.  I felt Nyla was over shadowed at double or nothing by the surprise appearance of Awesome Kong, so I think she needs a win here to bounce back.  There really is no build to this match at all, should be a good match.
Christopher Daniels vs. Cima
This has 50/50 booking written all over it.  I felt that SoCal Uncensored didn't need the win at Double or Nothing, especially since OWE isn't established to American fans at all.  Regardless, I think Cima will obviously get the win here, there's history between these 2 so you know they can have a good match.
Fatal Four-Way Match
Adam Page vs. Jimmy Havoc vs. Jungle Boy vs. MJF
This is going to be one of the best matches on the card in my opinion, you have 4 talents that AEW obviously wants in the forefront as evident by the championship reveal angle at Double or Nothing.  Adam Page is positioned to be the top baby face in AEW,  MJF has been a thorn in his side for a while and is already one of the most hated heels, Havoc and Jungle Boy will definitely be names to watch out for in eventual mid card plans for sure and their characters and styles are great, I'm excited for this one it's gonna be a great match.
Non-Sanctioned Match
Jon Moxley vs. Joey Janela
This is hands down the match I'm most looking forward to, the build for this has been amazing.  This feud started just because Janela walked up Moxley, lit a cigarette in his face, Moxley took it, smoked it and threw it down.  This would anger Janela.  This would lead to such a great build, and amazing promos by both guys.  Janela saying Moxley lost his touch from being in WWE, and I'm sure he's going to go out of his way to prove that he hasn't.  Moxley and Janela are so similar in so many ways and even have very similar styles, so I can't wait to watch this match, and I'm sure Moxley will win, it's his first match in AEW so he has to win after that surprise debut and making the statement that he did, and get him ready for his huge match with Omega at All Out in August that I'm equally as excited for.
Cody vs. Darby Allin
This is an interesting match, I don't think that Cody wants to lose going into his brothers versus brothers (Rhodes Brothers vs. Young Bucks) tag match at Fight for the Fallen, so I think he's gonna give Darby a lot here to at least make him look good in a loss. Allin has only been wrestling for close to 4 years, and he's young and can be a star with his persona and in-ring ability.  So I'm hoping its a good match, that makes both guys look good and puts a good light on he new talent in AEW.
Six-Man Tag Team Match
The Elite (Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks) vs. The Lucha Bros. and Laredo Kid
Considering Kenny lost to Jericho at Double or Nothing and the Lucha Bros. got there win and the AAA Tag Titles back at the most recent AAA event, I think it's safe to say The Elite will get the win here.  This will definitely be one of the top three matches, because just look at the talent in the match.  We all know how good Kenny, the Bucks, and Lucha Bros. are, the wild card for american fans will be Laredo Kid.  He is another great talent coming over from AAA and I'm excited to see him work with Kenny and the Bucks and see what they do together.  So as I said before The Elite should win, the only chance I can see them not winning is if there is some kind of interference, maybe from Moxley.  Either way this is gonna be a classic for sure.
So that's gonna do it, AEW Fyter Fest is sure to be another great show, getting closer and closer to AEW launching full time in October, enjoy the show, enjoy wrestling, and I just want to say, if your a WWE purist or WWE hater, don't turn this into something it isn't, the company take shots at each other but in the end everyone should just enjoy wrestling and don't pick a side, watch both and just be a wrestling fan.  That's gonna do it for me, I'm MikeJC signing off.
