All Elite Wrestling has confirmed Fyter Fest will stream live on B/R Live for free on June 29. The formal confirmation follows Kenny Omega’s announcement at E3 2019 that the event would stream live on the app. (Omega’s interview can be seen at this link.)

On a lighter note, Chris Jericho posted the following on Twitter, claiming he’s pulling out of appearing at Fyter Fest under protest… even though he was never booked for the show in the first place.
Jericho says AEW’s decision to give Fyter Fest away for free is ‘foolish’, and he doesn’t want to “be associated [with] such shameless pandering.”
In protest of @KennyOmegamanX, @CodyRhodes, @NickJacksonYB & @MattJackson13’s foolish decision to give the #FyterFest live stream away to @AEWrestling fans for free, I am pulling out of the event. I refuse to be associated w such shameless pandering.
