AEW has taken a different route regarding Fyter Fest 2020 with the show being held over two days
AEW had to change its plans regarding Fyter Fest 2020 and make it a two-day show. WWE had done something similar with WrestleMania earlier this year, but AEW will hold this sort of PPV during its regular Dynamite slot.
This got WWE to act fast as they also announced the Great American Bash 2020 would be held over two days too.
WWE and AEW are in a ratings war on Wednesdays, and this was another step which highlighted how important the war was for both promotions.
Date and location
Fyter Fest was originally to be broadcast from London, England and would have been AEW’s British debut. However, the Covid-19 pandemic ended those plans and there still is no confirmation from where the event will take place.
It could be held at the regular location of AEW Dynamite in Jacksonville, Florida. The matches have been split over the two days, 1 July and 8 July.
Streaming and where to watch
The two-day event will be shown on TNT as part of the regular slot for AEW Dynamite. Other channels which broadcast AEW Dynamite should also show the two-day event on the respective dates.
