In a recent social media announcement, All Elite Wrestling's (AEW) CEO, Tony Khan, detailed significant changes to the schedule of two of AEW’s hallmark events: Fight for the Fallen and Fyter Fest. This reshuffle was necessitated due to the raging wildfires in Maui, Hawaii, a stark reminder of the environmental challenges we face today.
Fight for the Fallen 2023 is set to light up our screens starting with the August 16 episode of "Dynamite." This fervor will continue with the August 18 airing of "Rampage" and will conclude with a grand finale on August 19 with "Collision." Taking a philanthropic angle, AEW has announced that the proceeds from both "Dynamite" and "Collision" episodes during that week will be generously donated to the Maui Food Bank.
This gesture continues the promotion's tradition of charity, reminiscent of last year when they supported the noble mission of Oceana, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and restoring the world's oceans.
Explosive Matchups Set for AEW
The Fight for the Fallen event promises an explosive opening night.
Fans should brace themselves for the debut of the "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" Death Match Championship. This visceral clash will witness wrestling titans Jeff Jarrett and Jeff Hardy go head-to-head. The women's division isn't left behind, as Dr.
Britt Baker is set to lock horns with The Bunny to decide the contender for the AEW Women's Title at the much-anticipated AEW All In event. Other matches to look forward to include Darby Allin partnering with Nick Wayne against the formidable Gates of Agony.
Moreover, Orange Cassidy is prepped to defend the AEW International Championship, facing the challenge from Blackpool Combat Club's own, Wheeler Yuta. The Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee will play host to these electrifying encounters.
However, the action doesn't stop there. Fyter Fest is slated for August 23 on "Dynamite," this time emanating from the Gas South Arena in Duluth, Georgia. Interestingly, this event will serve as a precursor, airing mere days before AEW makes its mark at the iconic Wembley Stadium in London for All In.
With such announcements, AEW continues its ascent, promising high-octane wrestling action while remaining socially responsible, reflecting the ethos of modern professional wrestling.
