Originally published at AEW Fyter Fest notes: Fight For The Fallen, Tony Khan announcement
As AEW wrapped up night two of Fyter Fest in Texas, they pushed out the lineup for Fight For The Fallen on 7/28 in Charlotte, North Carolina. It was announced at the top of the 7/21 show that GCW World Champion Nick Gage is taking on Chris Jericho in a No Rules match. That show will also feature a ten-man elimination tag as The Elite (Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, Doc Gallows & Karl Anderson) meet Hangman Adam Page and Dark Order (Evil Uno, Stu Grayson, Alex Reynolds & John Silver). If Hangman and Dark Order win, they get their shot at The Elite’s respective championships.
Fresh off of capturing the IWGP U.S. Heavyweight Title, Lance Archer is putting the title on the line next week against New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s Hikuleo. Along with that, FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler) are going to meet Santana and Ortiz. A major announcement concerning a new live event is being promoted for Fight For The Fallen and rounding the card out is Christian, Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus facing Angelico and Private Party (Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy).
