AEW revealed that their next pay-per-view, Fyter Fest, taking place June 29th, will be available for free to viewers on the Bleacher Report Live app.
For wrestling fans who didn't get the chance to check out the first AEW PPV offering, Double or Nothing, or weren't willing to spend over $50 to watch an alternative to WWE shows, AEW’s second show Fyter Fest will be free to watch.
At the E3 2019 Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, it was announced thatFyter Fest will be held in association with CEO Fighting Game Championships on June 29 and will be streaming for free on Bleacher Report Live announced Kenny Omega, one of AEW's biggest stars.
"We all have our fans and we're trying to introduce a new product," he explained before going into detail about how great a destination Daytona Beach will be to hold their show.
Fans who watched Double or Nothing will be looking forward to AEW's second pay-per-view installment. The card, to date, includes:
Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks vs. The Lucha Bros & TBA
Jon Moxley vs. Joey Janela
Four Way Match“Hangman” Adam Page vs. Jimmy Havoc vs. Jungle Boy vs. MJF
Cody Rhodes vs. Darby Allin
Hardcore MatchMichael Nakazawa vs. Alex Jebailey
What This Means
AEW did well with Double or Nothing and the buyrate numbers that came back were amazing. In one show, they sold more PPV buys than ECW, TNA or Ring of Honor history and did so without a tv show to promote their event. The one thing people complained about was the price.
$49.95 on Bleacher Report was a lot to ask people to pay for a show no one knew would be worth watching. This free Bleacher Report Live feed will even things out and get more eyeballs on AEW's new product. In a way, it's like WWE offering a free month on the WWE Network to get people hooked.
It will probably work too.
