AEW Fyter Fest Review and Fight For The Fallen Preview - Triple Threat POV

Posted by Robert DeFelice Saturday, July 6, 2019
Welcome to another edition of Triple Threat from Smark Out Moment, where three of us get together to discuss three questions based on one big topic going down in the week of professional wrestling.

This week, Dallas Allsopp, Greg Coleman, and Robert DeFelice will be giving their thoughts on what may happen at AEW Fight For The Fallen 2019!

Question 1: As a starting point, did you watch Fyter Fest? What did you think of the sophmore outing from All Elite Wrestling?

COLEMAN: Fyter Fest was a good show for what it was. The show was free and a part of a larger event centered around gaming. It was a great platform to introduce new AEW such as Private Party and Darby Allin. The main event delivered and lived up to all the brutality that was advertised. 7/10

ALLSOPP: I enjoyed the show as a whole. AEW is a viable alternative to WWE, and this show was consistently entertaining on a level that WWE has struggled to achieve. The only issue I have with the show was the unprotected chair shot delivered to Cody, however, it is early days for AEW so a few teething problems are expected. I’d give the show an 8 out of 10.

DeFELICE: It was a very interesting show. Definitely felt the alternative vibe that they were going for. Yes, they had some controversial moments due to the amount of violence on the show, but ultimately, I think it turned out for the best.

Question 2: Outside of the main event, what else did you think about the Fyter Fest card? How long can this new company sustain just thriving off of the appeal of being an alternative to WWE?

DeFELICE: Fyter was okay, but some matches lacked an overall reason. As someone who is slated to be in attendance next Saturday, I am ultimately disappointed in the card for the Fight For The Fallen show. It mostly feels like matches are just being thrown together. Chris Jericho will be in attendance but he won't be wrestling, and everything outside of the headliner feels like filler.

ALLSOPP: There wasn’t a match that I would consider bad. Joey Janela enhances his reputation, and Darby Allin gained new fans with his spirited performance. The climax of Kenny Omega destroying Jon Moxley as revenge for Double or Nothing only served to increase the hype for their upcoming battle. Overall, AEW has been successful in creating interest in their product, providing a clear directive to how they are the immediate alternative to WWE.

COLEMAN: For a free show, the card was solid and sufficient. Personally, I would’ve moved the tag team triple threat to the main portion of the card. I wasn’t a big fan of the women’s triple threat match as I feel like it dragged in spots but it was an overall solid card with good matches.

Question 3: Do you think that at this stage in his career, Dustin Rhodes has what it takes to deliver in this tag team match against The Young Bucks where he will be paired with his brother, Cody?

ALLSOPP: I110% he will deliver. Dustin has one of the best minds in the wrestling business, and he appears to have renewed motivation now that he is a part of AEW. Competing with his brother is an additional motivating factor, and no doubt his desire to show WWE that he can still compete will be enough to make this match a success. Plus, The Young Bucks can deliver a great match in their sleep.

DeFELICE: I am looking to these four to make this a show that I don't regret going to. Yes, Dustin is rather long in the tooth, but I think he will pull his weight and manage to assist everyone in creating a five-star classic for Mr. Meltzer.

COLEMAN: Absolutely! Dustin has the luxury of being in a match with 3 other active performers, all of which are performing at the top of their games right now. Dustin showed what he has left at Double or Nothing and in a tag match, he will be able to rest and pick his spots. The Bucks are going to make him look great. That match is going to be a classic.

Those are our thoughts on the issue, but where do you stand?
