A barbed wire death match is set for the second week of AEW Fyter Fest.
It was announced tonight on AEW Rampage that Eddie Kingston will take on Chris Jericho in a barbed wire death match. Members of the Jericho Appreciation Society will be locked inside a shark cage suspended above the ring.
Jericho and Kingston have continued to feud following their Blood and Guts match last month. Kingston had Jericho submitting to the plum stretch in that match, but Claudio Castagnoli scored the win after submitting Matt Menard.
On this week’s Dynamite, footage was shown of Jericho orchestrating an attack on Kingston’s friend, Ruby Soho, with Tay Conti slamming a car door on Soho’s hand. On this week’s Rampage, Kingston said that after defeating a young star like Konosuke Takeshita, he wanted another shot at Chris Jericho.
The first week of Fyter Fest begins on Dynamite this coming Wednesday. Matches announced include Claudio Castangnoli vs. Jake Hager, The Young Bucks vs. Swerve Strickland & Keith Lee and Powerhouse Hobbs & Ricky Starks for the AEW World Tag Team titles, Anna Jay vs. Serena Deeb, and Christian Cage & Luchasaurus will appear.
