MJF introduced AEW fans to Nick Gage at Fyter Fest, revealing he will face Chris Jericho in a No DQ match next week.
Nick Gage appeared at Fyter Fest on Wednesday night as MJF revealed he will face Chris Jericho in a No DQ match next week.
Both nights of AEW’s Fyter Fest were loaded, and night two kicked off with the first of five labours of Chris Jericho. Jericho needs to make it through all five if he wants to face MJF again. The first was a match against Shawn Spears in which Spears was allowed to use a steel chair, but Jericho could not.
Le Champion won the match with MJF watching on from the announce desk. Not impressed with the helping hand Jericho got from Sammy Guevara, the holder of the Dynamite Diamond Ring went ahead and announced Jericho’s second labour. A no disqualification match against someone who also doesn’t mind breaking the rules. A man who has stabbed one of his opponents and legitimately robbed a bank.
If you haven’t already figured out who MJF had waiting in the wings, it was deathmatch legend, Nick Gage. Gage then joined MJF on the stage, brandishing a pizza cutter and using it to signify what he plans on doing to Jericho next week. The match was described as No DQ, but it will be interesting to see how close to a deathmatch it can become on network television.
Gage has been wrestling for years but discovered newfound fame recently after he was the subject of an episode of Dark Side of the Ring. The show detailed his path to becoming one of the most famous deathmatch wrestlers of all time. He was legitimately killed in a match and brought back to life, robbed a bank, and sliced David Arquette’s neck, something else that really landed Gage on the radar.
It’s unclear right now what sort of deal Gage has with AEW if he does indeed have a deal at all. He might wrestle the one match with Jericho and be done. There is one other very obvious match waiting for him in AEW right now, however. A match against former deathmatch wrestler Jon Moxley who has shown up in GCW a couple of times and attacked Gage. Matt Cardona could return to AEW for a match with Gage too as he seems pretty peeved that he ducked their showdown recently but is working with AEW.
