The All Elite Wrestling (AEW) has recently announced that its flagship event of Fyter Fest will be streamed live for all the wrestling fans without any cost. This tremendous decision of broadcasting the event free of cost has shattered AEW’s star giant Chris Jericho. As a result of this, Jericho announced the protest to show his disappointment against the company. Not only this, he also threatened AEW to leave Fyter Fest event starting on June 29th at Florida.
Just after AEW’s shocking announcement, Chris Jericho took to Twitter to claim his protest against the unwise decision and tweeted, “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 with such shameless pandering”.

Notably, the decision was made by AEW Executive Vice-Presidents Cody Rhodes, Kenny Omega and well-known tag team ‘The Young Bucks’.
The glitzy event of Fyter Fest will feature many wrestling superstars besides Chris Jericho like Jon Moxley, Cody Rhodes, Nick Jackson, Matt Jackson and Adam Page at Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Florida.
The 48-year-old Canadian wrestler made his last appearance at AEW’s star-studded event Double or Nothing pay-per-view which was held at MGM Grand in Las Vegas. In that event, Chris Jericho faced former IWGP Heavyweight Champion, Kenny Omega in a much-hyped battle. The moment when both the wrestlers were engrossed in the fierce tussle, newcomer Jon Moxley who was previously known as Dean Ambrose in WWE rosters suddenly emerged from the crowd and ambushed Omega as well as Jericho at a time.
