Leva Bates is in the library.
She has pictures of when she and Peter Avalon were together. She literally dumps them and quotes “another famous librarian, ‘Testosterone is the great equalizer, and turns all men into morons.'” That theory is true looking over the last few months. “The One and Only Librarian” is something that scared Leva, but now it has liberated her. She can use all the time and energy wasted on Avalon and use it on herself. Now she’ll show the world what she can do, and that knowledge is power! Brainy can be badass, and Leva looks to write her own story in AEW!

Brandi Rhodes would’ve been out here with the young star if not for that attack by Jade Cargill on Dynamite. But will Velvet still be able to stir it up and make Tesha pay the price?
The bell rings and Price circles with Velvet. They tie up, go around, and then break. Velvet and Price tie up again, go around again, and break again. Fans cheer as the two are evenly matched.

Alex Marvez interviews Shawn Spears and Tully Blanchard.
He apologizes for interrupting their conversation, but he has been looking for them. He wants to ask about the controversial win over Scorpio Sky. Wow, really? How ballsy of him to open with that question. How about Spears be just as bold, and knock Marvez’s teeth out of his mouth? Tully calms Spears and Spears says there was no “instant replay,” no bullpen, no flags or timeouts. Do they know what it is these two do for a living? Find weaknesses and exploit them. That happens every day around the world but Spears is a monster for figuring it out? What is it that they really want to ask? “What is next for you and Scorpio Sky?”
Uh, nothing. Scorpio had his chance and did exactly what the world knew what he would: took the higher road. But where did that get him? Spears says this advice to Scorpio: “In this industry, nice guys finish last. DO you understand that?” It isn’t the violence but the distance you are willing to go. Spears has said this from the beginning, and that is why he is vindicated, victorious, and why Scorpio is completely lost. So what’s next for them? Nothing. Now take your ass home, Marvez. Tully and Spears cheers, but what is next for them?
Lance Archer and Jake the Snake are here!
But they aren’t alone as the Murderhawk Monster quite literally dumps an AEW prospect into the ring, then gives him a CHOKE SLAM! If that guy wasn’t a rag doll before, he is now. The Snake says the question they keep getting is, “Are you a good guy? Or a bad guy?” Never thought about it, but Snake always thought of himself as “just an honest prick.” But he asks Archer about the guy who invented the DDT. Duh, it’s Jake the Snake. But who stomped and romped all through Japan like Godzilla? Oh that’s Archer! Who’s the guy that carried a large python in a sack? Jake! But who’s the guy who showed up in AEW, took Mark Stunt and tossed him into the front row? Archer!
Jake says he has the topper. Who was the guy that tied the Macho Man in these ropes, and hooked him up with a 15 foot cobra, and left him? Jake the Snake. His favorite moment. Archer likes that, it’s that scary. But who is the guy that every single time that music hits, when that countdown starts, it makes everyone around the ring tear up and afraid, because they know #EverybodyDies? Archer. Then the real problem isn’t who Jake is, or who Archer is. The problem is, they dare anyone in AEW to get in Archer’s face and show us all who THEY are! An open challenge like never seen before has been issued! Who will be brave enough, or perhaps just insane enough, to accept it?
Private Party VS VSK & Baron Black!
Marq Quen and Isiah Kassidy had a great time helping Matt Hardy win the ELITE DELETION, but now they want to get back on track to those AEW World Tag Team Championships? Will they “invite” the Visionary and the EmpBRUH to this party in the ring?

Hell, 2020 has thrown everything at Sammy, golf carts included, and Sammy is still standing. There is nothing that can stop what Sammy is, because no one does it like him. Sammy doesn’t phone it in, he doesn’t take days off. Dark, Dynamite, PPV, it doesn’t matter because Sammy is the BEST EVER, every single night! Sooner or later, we will see what Sammy has been saying since day one in AEW. Sammy said that no matter who else says they’re the best, there’s no one bigger than Sammy! No one outshines Sammy!

AEW Dark presents a new episode of The Waiting Room!
Rebel/Reba welcomes us back, and introduces our host, “my dentist and yours,” Dr. Britt Baker! Britt walks in and is again so flattered by the standing ovation, that no one gave. The response to her talk show has been so overwhelming! The fans know that “The Baddest Bitch on the Block” isn’t just a dentist or just a wrestler, but that she is AEW’s franchise star and “quite the comedian.” Her office has been flooded with requests for her to appear! The Laff Factory, the Comedy Store, they all want Britt. Britt tries out some new material real quick: “What is a dentist’s favorite dinosaur? A Floss-araptor.” Rebel’s sidekick laugh is getting dorkier.
But let’s get to tonight. A big congratulations to Renee and Jon Moxley for their baby! Really, she means it. Renee, we can only hope Moxley doesn’t no show the delivery like he did last week’s contract signing. That’d suck…! Fans groan on that one. But Britt gives a big Waiting Room welcome to her guest, the blackbelt in judo and blue belt in Brazilian jiujitsu, the Brazilian Baddie, TAY CONTI! Conti makes her entrance, hugs Britt and takes a seat. Britt is so happy to have Conti tonight, and wants to sort something out. Is it said “Tay” like it’s spelled? Or more like “tie?” Britt would never want to insult her by saying it wrong. That’s just rude. Right, Reba?
Tay thanks Britt for asking, and it is “Tie.” Okay, then! “Tie” Conti, get it right, guys! Britt now joins Conti on the couch and wants to get to know her. This isn’t always about Britt. But who is Conti’s favorite competitor in the AEW Women’s Division? Other than herself and her friend, Anna Jay, Conti is a fan of Serena Deeb and Red Velvet. And…? Oh, duh! And Conti would love to have a match with the most important of the division: Hikaru Shida! Britt doesn’t like that answer but Rebel catches the show’s first “mail call.” And this is from “Tony S” in Atlanta. “What’s your relationship status?” Tony, that’s a bit weird to ask. Conti says no offense, but that is none of our business.
Well! This is Britt’s show, so answer the question. Conti will repeat herself. She knows she has an accent, so she’ll make it clear. “It’s none of your damn business!” Britt and Conti get in each other’s face and Rebel cools things off for their first ever musical guests! It’s The Acclaimed, Max Caster and Anthony Bowens! “AEW! The Acclaimed have arrived! Hit it, Max!” Yo yo! “You can try to be like us. You can try to be like us. You can try to be like us. I don’t really think you can ever do enough, though. You are not prepared to be acclaimed. You could never travel our terrain. And I think we ready for the Hall of Fame! Platinum Max isn’t just a name!
“You will never be cuter than I am. Bowens’ got more talent in his right hand, than anybody on the whole roster! And we got these tag teams lookin’ awkward. Wait, maybe you should be like Britt. Put the smile on that’s priceless. Yo! It’s priceless! And we about to leave y’all lifeless! ‘eeey! Be like us! You can try to be like us! You can try to be like us! I don’t think you could ever do enough, though.” Conti isn’t really feeling Caster’s flow, but Britt has the fans give it up for The Acclaimed! That’s all for tonight from the Waiting Room, and your favorite doctor, Britt Baker, DMD!

The Dark Order stands tall at the end of the night! Will it only be natural that the OG get to have another chance at those AEW World Tag Team Championships?
I feel like AEW Dark is becoming more about quantity and not quality. Everything was good tonight, but I feel like the main event could’ve been given more of the 165 minutes the night had. The Triple Threat tag was still fast and furious in a good way, but wouldn’t it have therefore been even better if it could’ve had some room to breathe? Maybe let it be a 15 minute match and not 10, then there wouldn’t be rushing through the spots. Pretty sure there was quite the collision during the double crossbodies to the outside that we weren’t supposed to have. But the Dark Order goes 2-1 on the night with Angels losing to Sydal 1v1. The Dark Order has two strong tag teams, but other than Brodie Lee, I don’t see much going for them in the men’s singles division. And even then, Brodie’s been off TV, I wonder what that’s about.
I will say, Sammy Guevara and Marko Stunt did have a great match, with a lot more out of Stunt than expected. Sammy of course wins to get back on track, and he had a really good promo after. I almost thought someone was going to confront him, but maybe that’ll be next time, since Sammy is deeply involved in the Inner Circle story that is MJF joining in. The Waiting Room was a bit more awkward this week, but clearly they were going for a “Jerry! Jerry!” moment as Britt got confrontational with Tay Conti. The Acclaimed are clearly gaining momentum and star power as they had their musical guest spot on the talk show, then had another good diss rap and win. I am already dying to see/hear Caster’s first diss rap on a big name team like SCU or Private Party.
I also thought it was interesting Avalon got his first win tonight. I really would’ve thought they’d have him wait until the last Dark of the year so that he could close out his 2020 record with that crucial first win and use it as a bigger reason to celebrate on New Year’s Eve. Plus, how hilarious would that be for him to get that first win, but then records are essentially reset for the 2021 “season?” He’d have to start from scratch basically, right as he finally got on the board!
My Score: 8/10
Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (10/4/22)
It’s Dark before the Anniversary!
Dark paves the way to the Dynamite Anniversary!
AEW is about to celebrate Dynamite’s Anniversary, but there’s plenty of action in the Dark! Will Dante Martin & Matt Sydal outwork the Workhorsemen?
- Marina Shafir VS Sio Nieves; Shafir wins.
- Ari Daivari w/ The Trustbusters VS AR Fox; Daivari wins.
- Tony Nese & Josh Woods w/Mark Sterling VS Rohit Raju & Invictus Khash; Nese & Woods win.
- Abadon VS Freya States; Abadon wins.
- Slim J w/ The Trustbusters VS Blake Christian; Slim J wins.
- Ryan Nemeth & Cezar Bononi w/ Peter Avalon VS Eli Isom & Chris Farrow; Nemeth & Bononi win.
- Parker Boudreaux w/ The Trustbusters VS Terry Kid; Boudreaux wins.
- Skye Blue VS Robyn Renegade w/ Charlette Renegade; Skye wins.
- The Iron Savages w/ JT Davidson VS Gus De La Vega & Levy Valenzuela; The Iron Savages win.
- Dante Martin & Matt Sydal VS The Workhorsemen; Dante & Sydal win.
Good line-up here. I feel like the Trustbusters are gonna sweep the night because they’ll all be supporting each other with Heel tactics. Honestly, I feel Blake Christian and AR Fox would each win their match-ups if they didn’t have to worry about outside distractions. Good to see the former Bear Country, now Iron Savages, Boulder & Bronson, back in action. They’ll definitely get a good return win. And Dante & Sydal VS JD Drake & Anthony Henry is a great tag match, and I would think Dante & Sydal win that.
Mitchell’s AEW Dark: Elevation Results & Report! (10/3/22)
Philly gets Elevated!
The Peacock and his Boys defends their gold!
AEW Dark: Elevation features the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions! But will Dalton Castle & The Tate Twins still reign in Philadelphia?
- Skye Blue VS Trish Adora; Skye wins.
- Brian Cage w/ Prince Nana VS Tracy Williams; Cage wins.
- Lance Archer VS Cheeseburger; Archer wins.
- Abadon VS Abby Jane; Abadon wins.
- ROH World Six Man Tag Team Championships: Dalton Castle & The Boys VS Primal Fear; Castle & The Boys win and retain the titles.
- Mixed Tag: Kip Sabian & Penelope Ford VS Gia Scott & Leon St. Giovanni; Kip & Penelope win.
- The Lucha Brothers w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Tony Deppen & Dante Martin; The Lucha Brothers win.
- 8 Man Tag: Best Friends VS The Factory; Best Friends win.
A really good line-up here, with the big attraction being Dalton & The Boys taking on Adrien Soriano, Matthew Omen, & Gabriel Hodder, aka Primal Fear. That’ll be a solid match that I will cover, but I don’t see the champions losing the titles. Good to see Cheeseburger but he’s gonna get eaten alive by Archer. And I like that we’re getting a full faction showdown of Best Friends VS The Factory. That’ll be a big win for Best Friends and they’ll have momentum going after Death Triangle for that feud.
