AEW TNT Championship| Cody (w/ Arn Anderson) (c) vs. Jake Hager

Tonight, Cody marks his 40th day as TNT Champion and continues his TNT Championship open challenge. This time, it will be Jake Hager answering his challenge.

Can Cody retain the TNT Title in his most difficult title defense to date? Or will Hager dethrone The American Nightmare on the first night of Fyter Fest?

AEW World Tag Team Championship | Kenny Omega & Hangman Page (c) vs. The Best Friends (Chuck Taylor & Trent)

Having reigned as champions for over 160 days, Kenny Omega and Hangman Page will be putting the AEW World Tag Team Championship on the line against The Best Friends.

To date, championship success remains the albatrosses around Chuck Taylor and Trent’s necks, but the duo does have the golden opportunity to taste their first tag team gold if they’re able to pull off a huge upset tonight.

AEW Women’s World Championship | Hikaru Shida (c) vs. Penelope Ford (w/ Kip Sabian)

Penelope Ford holds a victory over Hikaru Shida but it’s the reigning AEW Women’s World Champion who has been on an impressive winning streak this year.

Will Shida’s title run come to an end with her first defense against Ford?

Private Party (Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy w/ Matt Hardy) vs. Proud-n-Powerful (Santana & Ortiz)

Last week, Matt Hardy scored a victory over Santana in singles action but paid for it with a vicious assault at the hands of the Proud-n-Powerful duo. The timely intervention on part of Private Party made sure hardy didn’t suffer any serious injury.

With Marq Quen and Isiah Kassidy holding a victory over Sanatana and Ortiz from November, both teams will collide for the second time, tonight at Fyter Fest.

Tag Team Grudge Match | The Jurassic Express (Luchasaurus & Jungle Boy w/ Marko Stunt) vs. MJF & Wardlow

MJF’s multiple victories over Jungle Boy and Wardlow beating Luchasaurus last week are enough to sum up the intense rivalry both sides have had to date. The heels have always enjoyed the upperhand, and tonight they will collide with Jurassic Express in a tag team Grudge Match to seemingly draw an end to their long-drawn storyline.

Can Jungle Boy hand MJF his first true loss? Can Luchasaurus deal that decisive blow to Wardlow?
