As announced a few days earlier, All Elite Wrestling finally confirmed Christopher Daniels would face CIMA at Fyter Fest. The company also announced Laredo Kid has been confirmed as the mystery partner for Rey Fénix and Pentagon Jr. in the 6-Man match against Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks, aka The Elite, replacing PAC.
Despite signing with the company at a very early stage of its creation, PAC suddenly announced last month he had no intention of going to Double or Nothing in Las Vegas, nor would he be going to AEW, effectively quitting the company before it’d even really got started.
If visa issues have been stated as a reason for him to appear at both Double or Nothing and Fyter Fest, the fact he signed with Dragon Gate shortly before signing with AEW could make PAC have some creative differences with AEW, due to the fact PAC is the current Open the Dream Gate Champion for Dragon Gate. Neither PAC nor AEW confirmed those rumours. AEW even released the video where PAC is announcing he’s quitting the company on it’s YouTube channel.
