AEW right now is everything WWE is not. Cool, exciting, buzz-generating, and man can this company move tickets. All Out, as everyone is now aware, sold out 12,000 tickets in 15 minutes, with about 100,000 more users waiting in online queues to buy them. No wrestling event in history has ever had this much demand for tickets. Not WrestleMania, not Royal Rumble, nothing. Simply amazing.
But let's talk Fyter Fest....
Pre-Show Hardcore Match: Michael Nakazawa vs. Alex Jebailey
I don't know much about either of these dudes, but Jebailey is the head of CEO Gaming, which is co-sponsoring this event. For that reason I could see him winning this match, but Nakazawa is an actual AEW guy so it would make more sense for him to go over I think.
Pre-Show Match: Kylie Rae vs. Leva Bates
Kylie seems to be one of the women they're building this division around, and since she came up short at Double or Nothing it makes sense for her to get a win here.
Pick: Kylie Rae
Pre-Show Match: Best Friends vs. SoCal Uncensored vs. Private Party
This will be a wild affair full of non-stop action. Best Friends and SCU both scored wins at DON, while Private Party is getting a proper introduction here. The winners in this match advance to a First-Round Bye match at All Out, to determine their placement in the upcoming Tag Title tournament. I guess Best Friends makes the most sense.
Pick: Best Friends
