Slipknot Member Refuses To Attend Major Show


All Elite Wrestling are holding their Fyter Fest event on June 29th in Daytona Beach, Florida. The show’s name is a parody of the ill fated Fyre Festival, and Chris Jericho, who fronts Fozzy and wrestles in AEW, is ‘pulling out’ of the show, along with his band, in a hilarious spoof of Fyre. Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor, a huge wrestling fan, is also joining in on the fun. Taylor attended AEW’s debut PPV Double or Nothing last month in Las Vegas.

Chris Jericho 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 w such shameless pandering.”

Fozzy tweeted, “Regrettably & after much careful and difficult consideration, we want to let you know that #Fozzy won’t be performing at #Fyterfest. Due to the incompetence of the stupid promoters, we’re not confident that we would have what we need to give you fans a quality performance.”

Corey Taylor tweeted, “Was hoping it wouldn’t come to this but I’ve decided to pull out of #FyterFest because of unsafe conditions and a lack of real consideration for the talent or the fans. Standing in solidarity with @IAmJericho and I hope that this will be a reminder that we MUST be strong.”

AEW wrestler and Executive Vice President Kenny Omega responded, “Please check DM’s, I’m positive we can make this work!!! By the way, love the new masks and album…. call me?!😰💦”
