AEW returned to PPV for the first time since Dynamite arrived on TV, and it came in a week that saw NXT close the gap in the rating war. There is a strong argument to be made that they needed a big show, and I guess it is time to find out whether they pulled it off.

I enjoyed last week’s Dynamite, and we’re going through a quiet period for the companies that I usually watch, so I’ve decided to keep my AEW reviews going for at least one more week.

If history is any indicator, this show could veer wildly from genius to hilarious, and I am down for that.

AEW’s first show was widely hailed as a success. Double Or Nothing had the eyes of the wrestling world on it, and this fledgeling company stepped up, but Fyter Fest is a different beast. It’s, for all intents and purposes, a B-level PPV (it’s actually airing for free in America) and can perhaps provide a better insight into what we can expect from AEW when the size of the monthly events naturally has to drop.
