Full results of the special episode of AEW Dynamite Fyter Fest 2022 (July 20).
On the program for this second evening of AEW Dynamite Fyter Fest 2022 on July 20, Darby Allin faces Brody King, the new tag team champions are at the party while Chris Jericho and Eddie Kingston face off in a Barbed Wire Everywhere Death Match in the main event.
Brody King crushes Darby Allin
The first match of this evening of Fyter Fest is between Brody King and Darby Allin, accompanied by Sting (who did not stay during the confrontation).
Brody King defeated Darby Allin by falling with the Gonzo Bomb. Darby Allin had a few moments in the match but Brody King largely dominated.
After the match King continued to go after Allin in an effort to get Sting into the ring, and it worked. As Sting comes back to attack Brody King with his Scorpion Death Drop, the lights go out, and Malakai Black appears. Brody King holds Sting back and Black spits the mist in his face.
Miro then enters to visibly warn Malakai Black and Brody King.
Cole Karter, WWE NXT’s ex “Two Dimes” Troy Donovan is backstage and takes on Ricky Starks tonight for the FTW Championship. Starks laughs at how NXT made Two Dimes disappear from the screen, but Kater takes aim at Starks’ title.
William Regal and Orange Cassidy join the commentary table for the following game. Jon Moxley and Wheeler YUTA take on Best Friends Chuck Tayler and Trent.
Jon Moxley and Wheeler YUTA beat the Best Friends by falling with YUTA’s Seat Belt on Taylor.
Raise your glasses to Swerve Strickland and Keith Lee
Swerve in our Glory are treated to a little in-ring celebration for their victory as AEW Tag Team Champions last week. Rapper Kevin Gates is front row in the audience with a small glass of champagne. Keith Lee takes the mic to thank the fans for getting them to where they are today, and warns anyone who wants to challenge them for the titles to aim high.
Mark Sterling and Tony Nese interrupt. We discover in passing that there is a table with a cake and we suspect that someone will take it. Sterling tells the new Tag Team Champions that they just got lucky winning those titles and continues to try to get the petition signed to have Swerve Strickland fired. He then offers Kevin Gates to sign it, but he refuses.
Sterling then insults Gates, saying he makes bad music. The rapper then passes the barrier without being worried by the security just in front and threatens to attack Sterling. Nese tries to intervene but is beaten back by a punch from the rapper.
Finally, Sterling eats the cake… in the face, thrown by Swerve Strickland to end this segment.
John Silver and Alex Reynolds are backstage with The Butcher & The Blade, they have t-shirts for them. For Butcher, a t-shirt where it is written “BUTCH” – nothing to do with Butch from WWE SmackDown, we are probably on another register. The Blade has the same, but the gift does not please the heel duo who start to get angry before Hangman Page arrives to scare them away.
Jungle Boy back
Christian Cage and Luchasaurus defeated the Varsity Blonds by falling with a double chokeslam from Luchasaurus on the two opponents before sending Griff Garrison on Brian Pillman Jr. A squash which was a shame for the Varsity Blonds.
The match serves above all to announce the following surprise: Jungle Boy is back. Tarzan Boy resonates in the Gas South Arena in Duluth, but the former tag team champion is not celebrating. He approaches the ring with a chair in his hand, Luchasaurus approaches it, it is expected to attack him, but he seems to go along with Jungle Boy, who then goes hunting for Christian Cage through the audience. Luchasaurus did not move.
The Gunn Club declined the match against The Acclaimed, but Austin Gunn has a proposition to make: He wants a rap battle against Max Caster. The winner of this one will get the right to choose the match stipulation that will see them face off in the near future.
Ricky Starks defeated Cole Karter by pinfall with a spear to retain the FTW Championship title.
After the match Starks says he still has enough strength for a new challenger and calls on anyone who wishes to face him to show up on the ramp now. Danhausen answers the call from Starks, who finally prefers to wait until next week. We did not imagine Danhausen so feared.
Leila Gray can’t wrestle tonight, so Kris Statlander is pulled from the three-on-three match announced for tonight between Jade Cargill and her Baddies against Athena, Willow Nightingale and Statlander. It will finally be Cargill and Kiera Hogan against Athena and Nightingale, Statlander is banned from ringside at the request of Stokely Hathaway.
FTR ready to fight until the end
FTR are in the ring, interviewed by Tony Schiavone. Cash Wheeler speaks first ahead of their match against the Briscoes at ROH Death Before Dishonor. They respect the Briscoes, recall how difficult their first match was, but add that this does not mean that they will let the team titles slip away.
Dax Harwood for his part tells us a story, that of a little girl who suffers from a heart defect, a hole between the two ventricles. This girl had to fight to recover and avoid the operation, and after three years the doctor announced to her parents that she was cured. That girl is Dax Harwood’s.
Harwood goes on to say that if his daughter has been able to fight this hard, then he should go home with the ROH Tag Team Championships and legacy to be proud of. “Saturday, I will fight like an eight-year-old girl” he said to finish.
Jay Lethal, accompanied by Sonjay Dutt and Satnam Singh, complains in a promo about the absence of Samoa Joe who does not come to defend his title of ROH TV champion. We can’t really fault him, we haven’t seen Joe in a ring since Double or Nothing – Joe would be on the set of a series for Peacock, in fact. Christopher Daniels arrives and offers a match to Jay Lethal for AEW Rampage. Lethal agrees.
Rapper Jermaine Dupri accompanies Jade Cargill for tonight’s game. Stokely Hathaway recalls that only Cargill and Kiera Hogan will face Athena and Willow Nightingale.
Jade Cargill and Kiera Hogan defeated Athena and Willow Nightingale by pinfall with the Jaded Slam on Nightingale.
Thunder Rosa, along with Toni Storm, talks about her match against Miyu Yamashita next week at AEW Fight For The Fallen. She knows that the Japanese is stronger, but Rosa intends to fight to retain her title. Britt Baker walks by and says she’s had enough of Rosa’s promos, and announces she’ll be at AEW Rampage.

Eddie Kingston beaten, but Jericho ends badly
It’s time for the main event. Chris Jericho takes on Eddie Kingston in a Barbed Wire Everywhere Death Match. And there is indeed barbed wire everywhere, while the members of the Jericho Appreciation Society are all locked in a hanging cage. Ruby Soho has custody of the remote control that raises and lowers the cage.
Eddie Kingston attacks Chris Jericho as soon as he enters, the match is on and the Canadian’s face is already bleeding. The two wrestlers send themselves on or hit each other with all the objects covered with barbed wire possible. But that was without counting on the entry of Tay Conti who attacked Ruby Soho. Anna Jay arrives in her turn, we believe she has come to defend Soho, but she attacks him in turn. The cage is lowered while Tay Conti who has taken the keys tries to open the cage without success – the members of the group come out between the bars, we do not know if it is deliberately comical or just a failure.
The JAS attacked Eddie Kingston in the ring, but quickly Ortiz and the Blackpool Combat Club came to the aid of Kingston to scare the gang away in Jericho, but Sammy Guevara would return to the charge a little later.
Chris Jericho defeated Eddie Kingston by falling with his Judas Effect, his arm covered with barbed wire.
Jericho and Guevara want to continue the attack on Eddie Kingston after the match, but Kingston manages to extricate himself from his two opponents, throws Guevara out of the ring and sends Jericho into the “web of barbed wire” to end the show.
This second evening of AEW Dynamite Fyter Fest 2022 kept its promises, good matches and a main event as hardcore as it was entertaining. We are just surprised by the result, the rivalry would not finally be over?
