All ELITE WRESTLING STORMS INTO “FYTER FEST” AT CEO FIGHTING GAME CHAMPIONSHIPS ON JUNE 29 IN DAYTONA BEACH
— Iconic Match-Ups at Daytona’s Ocean Center with Cody Rhodes, Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks and Surprise Guests –
DAYTONA BEACH, FL (April 11, 2019) – All Elite Wrestling is taking center stage at the highly anticipated FYTER FEST during the CEO Fighting Game Championships, Florida’s largest video gaming convention managed by Community Effort Orlando (CEO) Gaming. On Saturday, June 29, at 8pm ET, FYTER FEST will feature electrifying match-ups with members of The Elite – Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega – as well as additional surprise guests.
Fans can purchase tickets in early May and get event updates at www.fyterfest.com. Hosted at the spacious Daytona Beach Ocean Center, this year’s edition of the CEO Fighting Game Championships marks the 10-year anniversary of the popular Florida-based show.
The high-octane convention, which is expecting more than 7,000 attendees from around the world, has become synonymous with incorporating professional wrestling themed entertainment into the program. Last year, CEO Gaming joined forces with New Japan Pro Wrestling to host a live wrestling card for the first time. This year, the superstars of AEW are looking to raise the bar even higher as they bring their new spirit, energy and freshness to the ring.
Kenny Omega, EVP at All Elite Wrestling, commented: “In 2018, CEO left me feeling fulfilled as a gamer. I could step out from the tournament, take a stroll through artist’s alley, main event my own show and then finally end my evening at JeBaileyland arcade before retiring to my hotel. Sounds great, right? It was… until I wanted more. I wanted music from the top artists in all genres. I wanted to rub elbows with TV and movie celebs while sipping on Coke Zero’s and pre-workout. All while surrounded by the world’s top runway and underwear models. Have I gone too far? Have I gone insane? Maybe. But I, no, WE have a dream. This is Fyter Fest.”
“It’s an exciting time to be a wrestling and gaming fan,” said Alex JeBailey, President and Founder of Community Effort Orlando. “After a successful cross-over live event with Kenny Omega at CEO 2018, I’m looking forward to an even better event and experience for attendees at CEO 2019. Being able to host a live show with the stars of All Elite Wrestling is something the CEO team is very happy to be a part of, and we can’t wait for fans to enjoy a memorable weekend in the making.”

Andrade, Zelina Vega, and Aleister Black Moved to WWE Smackdown
Did Charlotte Flair have anything to do with this?
Three talents get shaken up once more: Andrade, Zelina Vega, and Aleister Black head to WWE Smackdown in a WWE Superstar Shake-Up reversal.
In a surprising move, WWE has changed the profiles for Andrade, Zelina Vega, and Aleister Black to the blue brand, WWE Smackdown. Black was assigned to Raw during the Superstar Shake-Up, and Andrade and Vega were moved there in a spot that saw Andrade get a clean victory over Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor.
The internet, of course, immediately jumps to conclusions about the Latin representation of Smackdown (Rey Mysterio was also moved to Raw), as well as the relationship between Charlotte Flair and Andrade. Aleister and Zelina are married, and WWE has been trying to keep couples together. Do you think Charlotte Flair is responsible for this move?
Greg DeMarco’s Take on this WWE Superstar Shake-Up Reversal
I stand in the middle! I know, I don’t do that often. But Andrade to Raw made a ton of sense, as he can be a workhorse there and eat up TV time by putting on great matches. Smackdown is loaded (even more so), and I really hope 3 people move back to Raw in the process. As for why? This can definitely be a case of “LOLCHARLOTTEWINS” as she and Andrade are of course an item. If so, that shows how strong of a pairing Zelina and Andrade are if she went with him, and since Zelina and Aleister are married, Black goes as well. I could see the four of them traveling together, honestly.
This was originally reported by Pro Wrestling Sheet:
UPDATE: Aleister Black is now officially listed on WWE dot com as a SmackDown Superstar as well. His profile states: "After the 2019 Superstar Shake-up, Black set his sights on changing the landscape of SmackDown LIVE."

Dolph Ziggler Reveals He Was Added To The 2019 Royal Rumble The Night Before
How did Dolph Ziggler end up in the 2019 Men’s Royal Rumble?
When, and how, was Dolph Ziggler added to the 2019 Royal Rumble match?
In a sit-down interview with Chris Van Vliet (seen above), Dolph Ziggler reveals that he wasn’t booked for the WWE Royal Rumble until the night before, and he earned a payday for his comedy show and the Royal Rumble appearance.
“Oh my God. That’s a great story. Can I tell this story? When I talked to you, I was not booked for the Royal Rumble and I have no reason to lie to anybody or be like ‘Hey listen, I don’t know what the deal is’. I was just on hiatus and I got a call to be there. And if I wasn’t in town for a booking for a comedy show that night I would not have even been in Phoenix. I got a call the night before saying ‘Hey, you gotta get here.’ … I was one of the last people in the ring that night and my comedy show three blocks away had to start an hour late because I was running over with sweat and my bags. I almost went in my gear but I was like I’m going to have to shower.”
Dolph Ziggler hasn’t appeared for WWE since the Royal Rumble, and in the interview above he maintains that he on an extended vacation from the company. You might remember that Ziggler made first contact with Nia Jax during the Rumble, nailing her with a Superkick.
