Hot off the heels of his tag team partner, Karl Anderson’s defeat to Jon Moxley, Doc Gallows gets his shot at a singles match this Wednesday at Night 2 of Fyter Fest. As was reported by WrestlingInc, the match will be Gallows’ first piece of singles action with the company.
The event is already highly anticipated, as the matches are most definitely on the higher end of expectations. Perhaps the Texas Death Match we reported on recently is set to entertain the AEW fans in attendance and those watching at home for sure, but that isn’t the only highly anticipated match, of course.
Dr. Britt Baker is going to be defending her AEW Women’s World Title against Nyla Rose after weeks of the two butting heads, Nyla first antagonizing Baker on the night of her Championship celebration Burger Party, knocking the burger right out of legendary Analyst Tony Schiavone’s hands. Now of all the people to interrupt the meal of, you had to go and mess with the legend that is Tony Schiavone himself. Looks like those two will leave very little to be desired, or so much we hope.
Perhaps also highly anticipated is Chapter 1 in The 5 Labors Of Jericho in which Jericho will be facing Pinnacle member Shawn Spears; the stipulation which was set by MJF: only Spears is allowed the use of a chair.
The 5 Labors were a ploy designed by MJF in order to keep Jericho at bay in his quest to fight MJF one final time, or what seems to be the final time in a feud that has given the audience quite a lot during the run the two factions have shared in recent months—a lot of matches too.
The Blade vs Orange Cassidy is also set to take place.
Perhaps another highly anticipated piece of news was the match that was announced on Dark: Elevation, and that was the fact that Doc Gallows would be facing Frankie Kazarian. Newly crowned Impact World Tag Team Champion (with Karl Anderson) will be premiering in his first-ever singles match on AEW, and perhaps the veteran Kazarian is the absolute best opponent for him to have.
They go back to their time in Impact/TNA and the familiarity the two have is certainly to add to the chemistry and the dynamics of the match, or so can be hoped. The thing to remember here is that we’re talking about AEW and they haven’t disappointed yet, so it’s safe to assume, we’re in very good hands, I think. All we have to do is sit back and enjoy.
Fyter Fest Night 1 did exceptionally well…as has been reported all week long by various news outlets online. The event garnered over a million in viewership and in this business, and especially at this time, that’s certainly saying a lot.
Gallows and Kazarian are veterans in the sport; Gallows having his start in 2005 and Kazarian in 1998, they bring that level only a veteran can. To a roster like the AEW roster, “That’s gold, Jerry…Gold!”
Pardon the above Seinfeld reference, but I can’t help it.
