AEW star Chris Jericho has revealed on Twitter that he is pulling out of the Fyter Fest event due to the company giving event away for free. This is part of a storyline.
In protest of @KennyOmegamanX, @CodyRhodes, @NickJacksonYB & @MattJackson13’s foolish decision to give the #FyterFest live stream away to @AEWrestling fans for free, I am pulling out of the event. I refuse to be associated w such shameless pandering.— Chris Jericho (@IAmJericho) 11 June 2019
His band FOZZY also issued the following statement.
"Regrettably & after much careful and difficult consideration, we want to let you know that #Fozzy won't be performing at #Fyterfest. Due to the incompetence of the stupid promoters, we’re not confident that we would have what we need to give you fans a quality performance."
The Fyter Fest lineup includes Cody vs. Darby Allin, Jon Moxley vs. Joey Janela, Adam Page vs. Jimmy Havoc vs. Jungle Boy vs. MJF and a six-man tag pitting Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks against the Lucha Brothers and a mystery partner.
The event will take place at Dayonta Beach, Florida's Ocean Center and will air on B/R Live for FREE!
