AEW will bring back Fyter Fest this year, but under much different circumstances.
Tony Khan revealed during the AEW Double or Nothing media scrum that Fyetr Fest 2020 was originally scheduled to take place in London before plans obviously changed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
"Originally, Fyter Fest, I was going to do it in London. We can't do it, it's just not possible. We had the plans and I thought it was going to be our debut and now I'm telling the world 'I'm sorry.' I'm not sure when (we'll debut in England) but it was gonna be Fyter Fest. We would have had this great show," he said.
Khan went on to say AEW will make it to London when it is safe to do so.
AEW debuted Fyter Fest last year with the event taking place at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Florida. The event was held in conjunction with the CEO gaming convention. Jon Moxley battled Joey Janela in an unsanctioned bout in the main event of the evening.
Moxley looks to be headlining this year's even as well as Khan announced that Moxley will defend his AEW World Title against Brian Cage at Fyter Fest. Cage won the Casino Ladder Match at AEW Double or Nothing, allowing him to challenge for the World Title.
No date or venue was given for Fyter Fest, though Khan said more details would be announced on Wednesday's Dynamite.
