Live professional wrestling returns to CEO and it’s going to be All Elite!
Following the success of last year’s collaboration with New Japan Pro Wrestling, Alex Jebailey and Kenny Omega are teaming up once again to bring another live professional wrestling event to Daytona Beach, Florida the weekend of CEO 2019, but this time with the newly-formed All Elite Wrestling. Fresh off of their maiden voyage this past Saturday with their historic Double Or Nothing event in Las Vegas, Nevada, AEW’s “Fyter Fest” event will feature some great action from the organization’s top stars. After a pre-sale for CEO 2019 tournament attendees, tickets are on sale at Ticketmaster.com.
Already signed will be “The American Nightmare” Cody, coming off a victorious and brutal encounter with his brother Dustin Rhodes, taking on Darby Allin, who will be making his AEW in-ring debut. A standout in EVOLVE Wrestling. A standout in EVOLVE Wrestling, Allin has competed for promotions such as PROGRESS, AAA, DEFY Wrestling, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, MLW, Northeast Wrestling, GCW, and Aro Lucha, among others, who will no doubt be looking to make a huge impact on this grand stage.
A Six-Man Tag Team Match between AEW Co-Executive Vice Presidents and AAA Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks & Kenny Omega Vs. current Open The Dream Gate Champion PAC and The Lucha Bros., Pentagon Jr. and Fenix, had been signed, but with “The Man Who Gravity Forgot” seemingly quitting the company before DON, it remains to be seen if this match will still take place, or simply be changed.
Fans will also bear witness to “The Runback” between AEW’s Michael Nakazawa and CEO President and Tournament Organizer Alex Jebailey, in a Hardcore Match. Last year, Alex was victorious over Michael in his pro wrestling debut, despite rupturing his Achilles tendon during training. Can “The Nak” gain revenge, or will he be JeBaited into another embarrassing defeat?
The action doesn’t stop there! “Smiley” Kylie Rae’s going to face “The Librarian” Leva Bates with “The Librarian” Peter Avalon in her corner on The Buy-In Pre-Show on YouTube. Also a Triple Threat Tag Match between SoCal Uncensored, Private Party, and Best Friends, with the winner going on to the All Out PPV in September to compete for a Bye in the AEW Tag Team Title Tournament.
Finally, AEW has confirmed that their hottest new signee, Jon Moxley, formerly known as Dean Ambrose, will be making his in-ring debut for the company after his thunderous debut at Double Or Nothing. In what should be an explosive encounter, the former WWE Grand Slam Champion and founding member of The Shield will face the “Bad Boy” Joey Janella, following a confrontation on the latest episode of Being The Elite. This will be an Unsanctioned Match.
