Best and worst of AEW Fyter Fest: Cody Rhodes' next feud revealed, Moxley brutalizes Janela
But does that mean that the show wasn't good? I wouldn't necessarily say that, because there was enough good and bad interspersed across the course of the broadcast, I felt.
It's very difficult to invest in matches that have had no build at all, but I'm guessing that this is a problem that will be remedied once the weekly television show begins. AEW Fyter Fest is a show that everyone in the audience seemed to enjoy, but there were points where it lost my interest.
Here is an analysis of the good and the bad from the show...
#1 Best: Jon Moxley proves he's no longer Dean Ambrose
The question of whether Jon Moxley will be a different character from Dean Ambrose was answered brilliantly at AEW Fyter Fest. Jon Moxley scoured the section underneath the ring apron and found a variety of furniture items that he used against Joey Janela in what was a brutal match from bell to bell.
It was great to hear Jim Ross lament at the fact that Joey Janela wrestles such a daredevil style in the ring, making him look like a reckless, dangerous man that added a degree of insanity to the overall proceedings. Moxley played his part like a sadistic, calculated individual as well, tearing Janela apart.
And then when the thumbtacks came in, the audience would gasp in unison. By dropping Janela on the tacks, Moxley proved to the world that Dean Ambrose was dead and buried.
Jon Moxley is here and he's not a PG character at all.
