AEW News: AEW Fyter Fest Will Stream Live for Free
What's the story?
According to ScreenRant.com, Kenny Omega revealed that AEW's upcoming PPV, Fyter Fest will stream for free on B/R Live.
In case you didn't know...
AEW's first PPV, Double or Nothing was a massive success. Reports suggest that the PPV buy rate range between 98,500 and 113,000 buys worldwide. The numbers suggest something close to 71,000 buys in the US, with "almost an exact 50/50 split between standard TV pay-per-view and the B/R Live streaming service."
AEW Double or Nothing also showcased the debut of Jon Moxley as he closed off the show by attacking Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega. He was especially brutal with Kenny Omega by throwing him off a poker chip set piece.
AEW Fyter Fest promises to be different as it is a joint venture between AEW and Community Effort Orlando (CEO) fighting game event. CEO is considered one of the biggest fighting game community events.
The heart of the matter
Kenny Omega was recently at the E3 2019 Expo to promote AEW Fyter Fest. He goes on to say;
Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, Children of all ages, yes...we are going to be streaming Fyter Fest and its going to be live and it's going to be free.
