AEW taped the second night of Fyter Fest matches on Thursday night from Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, FL. Reddit user SpaceForce1 claimed to be at the show and provided alleged spoiler results. According to HeelByNature.com, the user has a “good track record” of providing results in the past. Here is what SpaceForce1 wrote:
Omega/Page vs. Private Party:
Kicked it off with the only title match on the card. Pretty fast paced match. Page and Omega retain with the Last Call.
Lance Archer vs. Joey Janela:
Archer attacks before the bell and pounds Janela around for a bit. Janela gets in a little offense, but it’s mostly ineffective until he counters a Blackout with a nice inverted face buster. He goes up top, but Roberts distracts the ref and allows surprise interference (?!). Archer capitalizes with a Blackout to the outside and rolls Janela back in for the three count.
Taz out to cut a promo on Moxley not showing up. Taz says Moxley is done at Fight for the Fallen.
FTR/Bucks vs. Lucha Bros/Butcher and Blade:
Heels out first with a troll, as they roll in loaded up in the old pick up truck. Lots of great offense. Poisonrana off the top, splash off the top to the outside. FTR hit a Shatter Machine on a running Fenix. FTR set up the Mind breaker, but Wheeler got pulled off the ropes to the outside. Harwood turned and walked to the other corner and Matt climbed the ropes for the assist to land it. Finish teased Bucks vs. FTR, and Lucha Bros and Butcher/Blade picked up the win. After the match, FTR helps up the Bucks and there’s a brief staredown, but they all go to the back without fighting.
Nyla Rose vs. TBD:
Nyla squashes two jobbers in a handicapped match. Wins with a powerbomb, then cuts a promo saying she’s going to be the Women’s Champion again. Disappointing.
Dark Order and Cabana vs. SCU:
Scorpio carries most of the load for SCU early. Lee is dominant when he’s in. Cabana looks conflicted and walks away from the ropes a couple times, but eventually starts taking orders from Lee. He begins working in tandem moves with Lee and Grayson as well. Finish comes when Cabana pulls Daniels off of a pin on Grayson while Lee is on the outside. Daniels gives him the “what’s wrong with you” scolding and they have a brief staredown while Cabana contemplates what he’s done. This allows Lee to sneak back into the ring and hit the big clothesline. Grayson gets up and tags in Cabana, letting him get the pin.
Women screaming. No idea what was actually happening, lol.
Chris Jericho vs. Orange Cassidy:
Main Event. This is some of Jericho’s best ring psychology and storytelling. Cassidy starts of by putting his hands in his pockets and running circles around Jericho for a bit, but Jericho eventually takes over. The majority of the match from here is a series of moves by Jericho with his signature taunting in between, followed by several brief moments where it looks like Cassidy will gain momentum. He never does, with Jericho eventually countering out of his runs of offense after a couple moves and taking control again. Jericho maintains control and locks in the Walls of Jericho. He uses the ropes for leverage several times and gets admonished by Aubrey Edwards, but keeps doing it. She catches him again and knocks his hand free, allowing Cassidy to counter out. Cassidy wins boo/yea punches and looks to gain momentum again, but Jericho stalls him again by dumping him outside. Fantastic underdog stuff. Cassidy finally has his moment and gets some real offense in with a hurricanrana out of the corner followed by hands back in his pockets and lazy kicks. He feigns the final lazy kick wind up, but hits a super kick instead, then goes up top and hits a big elbow for a two count. Jericho regains control into the Walls of Jericho again, but Cassidy is eventually able to roll out of it. Jericho hits a code breaker, but Cassidy kicks out at two. Cassidy counters a vertical suplex into a stunner. He runs the ropes and looks to be gaining momentum for a second time, but Jericho spins the Judas Effect out of nowhere for the win. Great match with GREAT storytelling. Cassidy has Daniel Bryan style underdog momentum.
