Tossing Salt Presents:
Thoughts & Predictions
June 30, 2020
Tomorrow night on TNT Dynamite, it’s a very special edition. It’s the return of All Elite Wrestling’s second annual AEW Fyterfest event. The card will be spread out over two weeks with the first part airing live. And I think this means prediction time. I did it for the WWE NXT event airing on USA Network, the Great American Bash and I’m doing it for AEW as well. It’s Sister Cleo time so let’s get to predicting. Let’s do this…
Jurassic Express (Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus) vs MJF & Wardlow
This is a match several months in the making and while MJF holds singles wins over both Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus, this is tag team action and I think The Express is the better team than MJF & Wardlow. I think Wardlow is just there to take the fall. This should be an excellent match. I’ll go for Marko Stunt’s favorite partners-in-crime to take the win.
Winners: Jurassic Express
Santana & Ortiz vs Private Party (Marq Quen & Isaiah Kassidy)
Matt Hardy will be in the corner of the Private Party. I don’t think it will help them much and despite the broken help, Santana and Ortiz, with maybe an assist from a returning Sammy Guevera, will have one thing for the P.P. and Hardy. Major Deletion.
Winners: Santana & Ortiz
AEW Women’s Championship: Hikaru Shida (c) vs Penelope Ford (w/ Kip Sabian)
I really don’t care at all about this match or who wins or loses. Whoever the champion currently is will just be keeping the title warm until Tessa Blanchard is ready to come to her new job (one hopes). I guess I’ll go with Penelope Ford to win. No reason, but that’s what the gut says.
Winner and NEW AEW Women’s Champion: Penelope Ford
AEW World Tag Team Championships: Kenny Omega & Hangman Page (c) vs Best Friends (Chuck Taylor & Trent)
I don’t think the title will change hands here. Look for Omega and Page to find a way and keep the titles, only for FTR to lay them out and make a statement. This feud is just filler as we wait for the real main event, with FTR challenging for the titles.
Winners and STILL AEW Tag Team Champions: Kenny Omega & Hangman Adam Page.
TNT Championship: Cody (C) vs Jake Hager
It’s Cody, accompanied by Arn Anderson, taking on the challenge of Jake Hager, formerly known as Jack Swagger, for the TNT Championship. Hager, fresh off a loss to AEW Champion Jon Moxley, is looking for redemption and has his eyes set on that TNT title. Cody is in for the fight of his life and I have no doubts that this match will be among the best of the night. But the question is, will Cody bleed? Of course, he will. Another question is who wins? I think the belt is staying with the champion.
Winner and STILL AEW TNT Champion: Cody w/ Arn Anderson
And there you go. Thoughts, comments, and any questions are welcome. Which show, AEW or NXT, are you planning on watching. Who do you think will win and lose tomorrow night in the matches being shown? Let’s talk and tell me what up. And with that, I’m out of here for now. Take care of yourself, stay safe and I’ll see you at the matches.
