AEW Dynamite: Fyter Fest Night Two Preview and Predictions


AEW Dynamite is back this Wednesday and will be televised live on TBS from Duluth, Georgia as All Elite Wrestling’s flagship show presents Fyter Fest, Night Two.

Coming off a highly entertaining night one of Fyter Fest that was highlighted by Konosuke Takeshita further brightening his star and Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland surprising the world by becoming the new AEW World Tag Team Champions, AEW will look to wrap up its annual two-night event with a bang.

While this week’s edition of Fyter Fest won’t have any titles on the line, it will feature a couple of grudge matches, including AEW’s first ever Barbed Wire Everywhere Match.

Let’s take a look at the four announced matches for AEW Dynamite: Fyter Fest, Night Two, and what to expect from each.

Brody King vs Darby Allin

The bad blood between Brody King and Darby Allin started at the first ever Royal Rampage when they were the final two competitors left in the ring gunning for a shot at Jon Moxley and his interim AEW World Title.

King would go on to win the Royal Rampage but would come up short in his pursuit to take the interim AEW Title from Mox.  After a hard-fought match, King and Malakai Black were heading to the back when Darby Allin and Sting appeared.  Darby seemed to offer words of praise to King and offered the big man a handshake, an offer King would ignore.

The past week has consisted of sneak attacks on each other from both King and Allin, one of which happened at a shopping mall where Darby Allin was making a promotional appearance.

Darby Allin was one of the biggest stars in AEW heading into the pandemic, but he has seen high-profile singles wins very hard to come by over the past year plus.

The smart move would be to start to build Darby Allin back up with all the injuries AEW is currently dealing with at the top of the card.  But Allin will most likely suffer another loss to a competitor that does not match his potential ceiling in AEW.  Winner: Brody King

Best Friends vs Jon Moxley & Wheeler Yuta

On the surface, this looks like a fun tag team match to feature the interim AEW Champion and an up-and-coming star in Wheeler Yuta.

But there is an underlying story here.  Yuta came into AEW with Best Friends, butted heads with Trent Beretta, and fought his way into the Blackpool Combat Club.  Beretta surely sees this as an opportunity to get some revenge on Yuta for leaving the Best Friends behind.

The fact that Best Friends are most likely taking this match against Yuta personally could work for or against them.

While Best Friends is the more established team and should have an advantage in this tag team match, the star power of Mox and the momentum of Yuta should be enough to earn the win for the members of the Blackpool Combat Club,  Winners: Jon Moxley & Wheeler Yuta

Varsity Blonds vs Christian Cage & Luchasaurus

Christian Cage will step into the ring for the first time since his betrayal of Jungle Boy when he teams with Luchasaurus to take on the Varsity Blonds.

This match will probably be more competitive than it should be.

Brian Pillman, Jr. and Griff Garrison are high-level prospects and because of that they most likely won’t be booked to be squashed in a match with Cage and Luchasaurus.  But the message of Cage and his muscle as a force to be reckoned with needs to come out loud and clear here.

With each passing week, the return of Jungle Boy becomes more and more likely.  But his return should come in a bigger spot than this.  Winners: Christian Cage & Luchasaurus

Eddie Kingston vs Chris Jericho in a Barbed Wire Everywhere Match

In what will most likely be the blowoff match in their long-running feud, Eddie Kingston and Chris Jericho will settle their dispute in a Barbed Wire Everywhere Match.

AEW has been criticized for its overuse of gimmick matches in spots where just regular wrestling matches would fit better.  But this is a spot where a gimmick match and a brutal one at that, makes perfect sense.

After competing against each other in a number of team matches including Anarchy in the Arena and Blood and Guts, Jericho and Kingston going one on one in a match where blood will be spilled is the perfect conclusion to this rivalry.

Next. AEW must find a way to feature Sonny Kiss on television. dark

This match needs to end the way their first singles match did, with Kingston getting a big victory over one of the biggest names in AEW.  If there was ever a time for Eddie Kingston to move up to the top of the card this is it.  And another victory over Jericho here will be a major step in that direction.  Winner: Eddie Kingston
