When the Pac vs. Hangman Page match scheduled for Double or Nothing was canceled, it didn’t only affect All Elite Wrestling‘s first PPV. The situation that led to Pac’s absence also led to a major change to the card of AEW’s second show, Fyter Fest, on June 29. The previously scheduled dream trios match of Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks vs. PAC and the Lucha Brothers became a match between the two-time NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Champions and Pentagón Jr., Fénix, and a TBA partner.
After the Lucha Bros. won the AAA World Tag Team Championships back from the Young Bucks at Verano De Escándalo, their mystery tag partner for Daytona Beach, Florida, show was announced at the end of today’s episode of Being The Elite. While he isn’t as big of a name as PAC, he is a talented wrestler with whom many fans are familiar: Laredo Kid.
Laredo Kid is the current AAA World Cruiserweight Champion and one-third of the AAA World Trios Champions along with El Hijo del Vikingo and Myzteziz Jr. He has worked for AAA on and off since 2005 and made appearances in Impact, The Crash, and American independent promotions including PWG, AIW, and AAW.
Fyter Fest is a live wrestling event at a video game convention with a theme parodying Fyre Fest that will stream for free on Bleacher Report Live, but it features some promising match-ups. In addition to a pre-show match between Michael Nakazawa and non-wrestler event organizer Alex Jebailey, here’s the main card as it stands right now:
- Cody vs. Darby Allin
- The Elite (Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks) vs. the Lucha Brothers and Laredo Kid
- Jon Moxley vs. Joey Janela
- Adam Page vs. Jimmy Havoc vs. Jungle Boy vs. MJF
- Christopher Daniels vs. Cima
- Yuka Sakazaki vs. Riho vs. Nyla Rose
