AEW Fight for the Fallen: are finding their feet in the wrestling world after two successful pay-per-view events. We’re only two weeks removed from All Elite’s last event – Fyter Fest – which provided fans with a vast array of different wrestling styles. We were treated to the violent gore-fest between a debuting Jon Moxley and Joey Janela, a hellacious trios match between The Elite and The Lucha Bros & Laredo Kid, and a match that featured Michael Nakazawa using an N64 Controller as a weapon.
Fight for the Fallen is the last pit-stop before All Out, AEW’s biggest event of the year. With a lot riding on that September spectacular in Chicago, the AEW need to be firing on all cylinders in this go-home pay-per-view. It seems as if AEW are testing the waters with what could be the presentation and booking styles for the weekly AEW television programme, so I wouldn’t expect anything too crazy going into this weekend’s event. More exhibition style contests to help establish the hierarchy of the roster going forward.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at who will be performing in Jacksonville this weekend, and who could walk away with the big wins. Remember to leave your thoughts and opinions down in the comments section.The first of two scheduled pre-show matches features the singles debuts of Sonny Kiss and Peter Avalon. Avalon has found himself involved in a strange comedy-ish gimmick with Leva Bates as two overbearing librarians, I personally don’t get the humour of a wrestling librarian gimmick, so I’m looking forward to Sonny Kiss absolutely destroy Avalon in the opening contest of the Buy-In.
Sonny is one of those talents that nobody has a negative thing to say about. Kiss has made a name for himself in promotions such as Lucha Underground, where his flamboyant style got him over with the fans and made him a highly sought after attraction for independent shows across the world.This is Sonny’s match, there’s no way he’s walking away with the L.
The big spectacle of the pre-show is this huge six-man match, stacked with some of the biggest names in AEW. The big talking point going into this trios contest is Shawn Spears, and his developing feud with AEW head honcho, Cody. Spears drilled Cody with a surprise chair shot after his match with Darby Allin at Fyter Fest, naturally setting the two friends for a grudge match at All Out, which should be a lot of fun. In the meantime, Spears is competing alongside hot product MJF and the burgeoning Sammy Guevara.
On the opposite side of the ring will be Havoc, Allin and Janela. All three men have already set the bar high for the rest of the AEW, there’s no surprise that Cody and the Bucks have relied upon them to deliver some fantastic action during the Buy-In.I feel like the heel team are going to take this one, with Spears at the fore-front of that victory. If AEW are planning on pushing Spears/Cody as a headlining act for All Out, then the artist f.k.a The Perfect 10 will certainly need a big win behind him.
