From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

AEW Fyter Fest is a professional wrestling event produced by All Elite Wrestling (AEW). The event started in 2019 and is usually held in the Summer. The event airs as a special episodes of AEW's television shows Dynamite, Rampage, and Collision. The name "Fyter Fest", as well as the logo, is a reference and parody of the 2017 music festival Fyre Festival which turned out to be a fraud.[1]

The second event was originally going to be the United Kingdom debut of AEW and was going to take place at Wembley Arena but it had the be cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.[2]
