Fyter Fest is a stop gap, house show-esque event that we all get to watch for free through Bleacher Report Live! Did we get anything of merit out of this?

So we know of the comedy grudge match with Alex Jebailey and Michael Nakazawa, Hangman in the Fatal 4 Way and Cody helping Darby Allin get some exposure.

Do these end in the predictable ways we’ve been expecting? Do they add any interesting stakes? Did Cody bite off more than he can chew?

Time to find out!

Ratings:

  • Best Friends vs Private Party vs SCU: Best Friends win via Strong Zero – ***
  • Allie vs Leva Bates: Allie wins via Best Superkick ever – 1/2*
  • Alex Jebailey vs Michael Nakazawa: Nakazawa wins via Reverse Cradle – *
  • CIMA vs Christopher Daniels: CIMA wins via Diving Meteora – ***
  • Nyla Rose vs Riho vs Yuka Sakazaki: Riho wins via Leg Hook Roll Up – * 1/2
  • Hangman Page vs MJF vs Jungle Boy vs Jimmy Havok: Page wins via Deadeye – ** 1/4
  • Cody Rhodes vs Darby Allin: Time Limit Draw – *** 1/2
  • Rey Fenix, Pentagon Jr & Laredo Kid vs Kenny Omega, Matt Jackson & Nick Jackson: Omega wins via One Winged Angel – ****
  • Unsanctioned Match: Jon Moxley vs Joey Janela: Moxley wins via Paradigm Shift – *** 3/4

 

Analysis:

We got to see a lot from the young team Private Party. Each team got a chance to shine, but it was really the showcase for Private Party. Best Friends managed to get around the flurries of Private Party and SCU to edge out a win with Strong Zero. A good open to the show, but it was meant to show off the team of young wrestlers.

Leva and Allie goes on too long and it’s just painful to watch. Lots of the Librarian gimmick, and the finish is awful. Not even trying to “throw the book” poorly and just obviously throwing it to Allie, the awkward hand up…just complete garbage.

This whole match was comedy hardcore, I get it. Doesn’t make it better, but the buttons with Jebailey’s face on it and drowning in the kiddie pool were marginally amusing. For what it was supposed to be, I suppose it was alright, but it was just a comedy mess.

Both veterans have a great back and forth. Selling a few different injuries, and trading big moves until CIMA catches Daniels after the Angel’s Wings. A Sunset Powerbomb, Cross-Legged Driver, Three Quarters Necklock Slam and then the Meteora ends the match in favor of the OWE representative. Just a really solid match.

Well the story of the match was a little obvious. Both of the smaller women ganged up on Nyla quite often. Nyla got cocky at multiple points which ended up costing her. Yuka and Riho peppered in a few moves, Yuka got taken out and Riho was being thrown around a little. Nyla went for a second Beast Bomb, and Riho was able to counter it into a Forward Roll with a leg hook for the surprise victory. Match was a little rough and felt like it went a little long, but the ending seemed to set up a few things with all three.

Lots of mistimed spots, over compensating for position and what’s up with the rope usage? Like if multi-person matches are NoDQ, why are submissions being broken up by getting to the ropes? A few cool spots involving Jungle Boy but nothing very fluid or logical. It was also nice to hear that Kip Sabian gets the winner of the match at Fight for the Fallen. So it sets up another match to help get Hangman some momentum.

Darby got his ass whooped this match. Cody dominated most of this match, but Allin wouldn’t stay down. So Allin showed his resiliency and his insanity. The Coffin Dive miss onto the apron was just crazy. Darby came out of the match looking great. After the Draw, we expected an Overtime, but, Shawn Spears comes out and cracks Cody with a Chairshot, Cody listened to us and Always Used His Head. So there’s a huge gash on the back of his head and most of the BTE cast comes out to check on him and walk him to the back.

We had a six man match at breakneck speed with a lot of Lucha elements. Multiple triple team spots, Superkicks and dives. There were a couple misfires and mistimed moves that took a little bit away from the match, but, it was the work rate style match that everyone expected. Also The Elite coming out dressed as Street Fighter characters did a good job at pandering to the CEO Gaming crowd. Match was fine, but there wasn’t much aside from good action to take away from this.

Given how Moxley and Janela have both made their bones, a hardcore match is the comfort zone. We saw some interesting tweaks, like the bloody rags attached to the barbed wire chair, the Snap Russian Leg Sweep through the table and the highlight spot was Moxley hitting the X-Plex on Janela into the tacks. There were a ton of spots that were a little slow or awkward or just done up for amusement, hence the not sky high rating.

 

Overall Score: 5.5/10

Well the pre-show was not very good aside from the Triple Threat tag match. When we got to the main card, some matches were okay but the whole show generally fell flat. Many of the matches didn’t feel like they had any weight, and when they did add a layer through commentary it was just a case too little too late. Also with the women’s match drawing on getting sympathy for the Magical Girl, I think it did a good job, but the match itself wasn’t anything to care about.

So while the show wasn’t awful, the down points and lack of tangible suspense made for a flat experience. Even with the show ending fairly strongly, getting to that point was a little bit of a struggle. Hopefully, Fight for the Fallen can re-establish the string of on screen quality matches.

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (8/9/22)

Best Friends get Dark!

Published

on

AEW Dark 2

Whatever.

Before entering the AEW Trios Championship Tournament, Best Friends are in action, in separate matches! Will tonight’s Dark be Freshly Squeezed?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • 8 Man Tag: Private Party, The Butcher & The Blade w/ The Bunny VS Isaiah Broner, Brayden Lee, James Alexander & Sam Moore; Private Party, Butcher & Blade win.
  • Anna “Jay A.S.” w/ The Jericho Appreciation Society VS Megan Meyers; Anna wins.
  • Best Friends w/ Danhausen VS Rohit Raju & Ren Jones; Best Friends win.
  • Evil Uno & Preston Vance VS Peter Avalon & JD Drake; Uno & Vance win.
  • Marina Shafir & Nyla Rose w/ Vickie Guerrero VS Heather Reckless & Joseline Navarro; Shafir & Nyla win.
  • Kris Statlander VS Sierra; Statlander wins.
  • Six Man Tag: The Trustbusters VS Sonny Kiss, Zack Clayton & Xavier Walker; The Trustbusters win.
  • Six Woman Tag: Ruby Soho, Athena & Hikaru Shida VS Serena Deeb, Leva Bates & Emi Sakura; Soho, Athena & Shida win.
  • Orange Cassidy VS Anthony Henry w/ JD Drake; Cassidy wins.

QUICK NOTES

So it seems Ari Daivari, Parker Boudreaux & Slim J are a trio now under The Trustbusters name. Good to see Sonny Kiss back in action but Kiss, Clayton & Walker aren’t winning that one. And I’m still wondering if The Wingmen are really a thing with JD Drake also spending time with Anthony Henry as the Workhorsemen. For that matter, why wasn’t it Best Friends VS The Wingmen in a 3v3? Or are they going to use that as an easy win in the opening round of the AEW Trios Championship Tournament?

Columbus gets Elevated!

AEW Elevation Coverage

Elevation has CERO MIEDO!

Before AEW Dynamite: Quake by the Lake and their Tornado Tag match, the Lucha Brothers tune up against The Wingmen in a standard 2v2!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Ruby Soho & Skye Blue VS Megan Myers & Nikki Victory; Soho & Blue win.
  • Parker Boudreaux w/ Ari Daivari VS Casey Carrington; Boudreaux wins.
  • Athena VS Queen Aminata; Athena wins.
  • Kiera Hogan & Leila Grey w/ Stokely Hathaway VS Freya States & Alice Crowley; Kiera & Leila win.
  • John Silver & Alex Reynolds VS T.U.G Cooper & Lord Crewe; Silver & Reynolds win.
  • The Lucha Bros w/ Alex Abrahantes VS The Wingmen; The Lucha Bros win.

QUICK NOTES

One thing to note is that Parker Boudreaux has Ari Daivari in his corner. I wonder if the Trust Busters is becoming a trio, Parker joining Daivari and Slim J. Then in Kiera and Leila teaming up, this is the one time where “Can they coexist?” should be a thing since The Baddies still haven’t fully accepted Leila. And of course, the Lucha Brothers will beat The Wingmen to get momentum going into their Lucha Rules Tornado Tag with Rush & Andrade.
