Winners: Hangman Page & Matt Hardy, by pinfall
That was a bit harrier than their first time together, but Hardy and Hangman are 2-0! Is this the beginning of a beautiful partnership?
Hardy gets a mic to say, “Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for Hangman Adam Page!” How great does he look? Like a million bucks! No, a BILLION bucks! Hardy is excited because Hangman is going to make a LOT of money! That means Hardy makes 30% of a LOT of money! Hangman made the right decision, Hardy is proud and happy that Hangman signed with him! Hangman borrows the mic to say Hardy probably didn’t pay attention at the bar. But Hangman had some good friends once tell him, “Always keep an extra set of papers rolled up in your jacket.” Hangman pulled a Brodie Lee?!
Hardy realizes he didn’t read the contract Hangman signed. So now let’s get a legal team to let us know just what was in that contract! Jackson Duvall comes out and Hardy is okay if Hangman added some pork. Jackson gives Hardy the contract and Hardy looks it over. Wait, wait, wait. This isn’t a talent representative contract. This is a match contract for AEW REVOLUTION!! Hangman VS Hardy 1v1?! And if Hardy loses, Hangman gets 100% of HARDY’S earnings for the first quarter of 2021?! What the heck, you carny!? You bamboozled him!! Well okay Hardy was doing similar to Hangman.
But if that’s how it is, then Hangman being an honorable man needs to put something of equal value on the line! If Hardy wins, he gets 100% of Hangman’s earnings from this first quarter! Hangman didn’t see that coming. But Hangman thinks they might have themselves a big money match. They shake on it, but Hardy says Hangman’s finished. Jackson attacks Hangman?! Why?! Because it was ISIAH KASSIDY in the costume! And Hardy offers TH2 $3700 (a rather odd sum) if they kick Hangman’s ass! Kassidy and TH2 rain down fists and stomps on Hangman! But here comes the DARK ORDER!!
Negative One rallies the troops while Alex Reynolds & John Silver run off Kassidy and beat up TH2! Numbers 5, 10, Evil Uno & Stu, and even Cabana, get Hardy and his henchmen to leave the ring! Fans are fired up as Cabana even uses a shoe to beat Angelico! Alan Angels glares at Hardy and fires off haymakers! Hardy throws Angels away, Hangman slingshots in! Hardy narrowly avoids the Buck Shot and gets away with Kassidy! Hangman looks to his friends in the Dark Order, is he going to join them after all? Will Hangman cash in or bust against Big Money Matt at Revolution?
Backstage interview with The Inner Circle.
At least, the six men left, after Sammy Guevara quit. But Alex Marvez focuses on asking Santana & Ortiz about their first opportunity at THE AEW World Tag Team Championships since joining All Elite Wrestling 18 months ago. FINALLY, someone says it! 18 months, and Ortiz finally realized why that is: FEAR. Santana says it is fear within management, and within every tag team that has ever held those titles. “But guess what? The time for running is over! It’s time to pay y’all’s dues to the illest! And here we are to collect!”
MJF interjects to vent about last week. Sammy Guevara crossed the line with zero evidence! Because he thought MJF was trying to frame Sammy with a recording? What kind of a yutz do you take MJF for? Do you think MJF would secretly record you when there is always a camera on him? And yet, despite all these facts staring Sammy straight in his stupid, squinty little face, Sammy has yet to “nut up and apologize” like a man! Chris Jericho tells MJF to shut up about this already! They know what MJF was up to because everyone was watching week after week. MJF was goading Sammy and pushing him over the edge! Congratulations, it worked, Sammy left them. Good job, MJF, this is your fault.
But the majority of this is on Sammy. Damn right! Shut up, MJF. Jericho wanted MJF and Sammy to be in each other’s faces so they could make each other better. MJF figured that out, Sammy did not. And after bad choice after bad choice, the dumbest choice of all was quitting the Inner Circle. When you walk out on the Inner Circle, you walk out on Jericho, and for that reason, Sammy is DEAD to Jericho! Jericho never wants to hear that name again! But onto tonight! Santana & Ortiz will win those AEW Tag Team Championships and bring gold back to the Inner Circle! Let’s go win some championships! But will Proud ‘n’ Powerful win those titles only to defend them against #Y2MJF at Revolution?

That’s all I’m hearing!” But obviously Team Taz is down a few men because Sting’s stupid snow went down south! But hey, Taz says there’s no better time for Sting to come out and call them out! It’s only three, not five! Where you at, Stinger?! Ask and you shall receive, here comes the crow, the snow and the icon! Sting has his bat as he goes to the ring, and Taz has the music shut off.

Eddie Kingston speaks.
“This is for you people out there that don’t get it! I requested for this match!” Kingston wants tonight’s Six Man, “because there’s three demons I gotta deal with!” One: Lance Archer has been after Kingston since the Casino Battle Royal! They had a Lumberjack match, Archer won, but that doesn’t sit right. Two: Rey Fenix, “a waste of space,” who Kingston never wanted in The Fam! He only ever wanted Fenix’s brother, Pentagon. But then Fenix turns away from them, gets Penta to turn on Kingston, and he thinks he’s not gonna pay for that?!
And then there’s Moxley. An old friend. Moxley is the one Kingston needs to get rid of the most. Kingston can’t get rid of him with drinking, pills, women or whatever. He can only get rid of that demon by beating him up. Will Kingston exorcise his demons? Or will they drag him down and break him down to end tonight’s Dynamite?
AEW Media catches up with Kenny Omega and company.
The AEW World Champion is holding a copy of the Young Bucks’ auto-biography, and is telling a group of people that he feels “so blessed.” Don Callis and Michael Nakazawa are with him and are all smiles, until Alex Marvez walks in. That’s not okay, Marvez! A new low from AEW. Omega is talking to a kindergarten class as he offers to read them a story. This is about his two best friends, the Young Bucks. Do the kids know who they are? Yes, they’re the AEW World Tag Team Champions! And before they start, any questions? A boy asks if there are any pictures in the book. Well, uh, there’s one on the cover. Young Bucks, Killing the Business.
Another boy asks if the Bucks are in love. Well, uh, the cover kinda gives that appearance, doesn’t it? But the Bucks are brothers, so on that level, they love each other as family. Now to the story. Omega reads his favorite part. When Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega eventually wrestled in the Tokyo Dome on WrestleKingdom 12, “business went up drastically!” Does anyone know what “drastically” means? No. It means, “by a lot!” Like, a lot a lot. All because of Omega! They made a lot of money! Callis says time is running short, “Uncle Kenny” has to get going. Aw, so sorry! The kids cheer for Kenny and Omega likes that, but he wants them to cheer as young champions. Such a good class! Omega hopes to be back real soon!
On his way out, Omega asks his PR manager, Margaret, how they’re doing. They’re doing great! His numbers are way up! The humanitarian angle is working wonderfully. They’re finally getting that under 10 demographic they’ve been aiming for! Speaking of, one little boy wants to play with Omega. Callis says they can’t, Uncle Kenny’s gotta get going. But the kids can play with Uncle Nakazawa! YAY~! No, the kids don’t like Nakazawa! They want Omega! One kid even kicks Nakazawa in the shin! The kids gang up on Nakazawa but Omega and Callis can’t be part of this so they’ve gotta get going. Will Nakazawa be okay? Will Omega continue to build his brand across all ages?

And after the chaos that happened after the AEW World Tag Team Championship match, Brandon Cutler and Jake Hager go 1v1! Will the Dungeon Master avenge his friends?
Jon Moxley speaks.
“Eddie Kingston. As requested, this Six Man Tag tonight. Always with a stick up his ass.” Kingston has problems with Archer, with Fenix and with Moxley. Even after all this time, even after everything Moxley and Kingston put each other through, Moxley is still the only one here who actually cares about Kingston. But Moxley will whoop Kingston’s ass as many times as it takes to get that through to him. Moxley has a lot of business. After tonight, he looks to NJPW Strong, 2/26, where the whole world will watch him “attempt to break Kenta’s neck and put his ass in the ground for good.” Then will be the rest of the sons o’ bitches when Mox takes back his AEW World Championship from Omega!
Moxley told Omega there is no running or hiding. “As long as it takes to settle the score, you’re still in my crosshairs.” That time is coming closer and closer “to pull the trigger.” Will Moxley still be IWGP United States Champion when it’s time to come back for #PrettyPlatinum?
Six Man Tag: Eddie Kingston & The Fam VS Jon Moxley, Rey Fenix & Lance Archer w/ Jake the Snake!
The Butcher, The Blade & The Bunny are still loyal to the Mad King, perhaps blindly so. But they vow to help him get rid of all of his enemies in one fell swoop! But will it be easier said than done against the Maniac, the Firebird and the Murderhawk Monster?

Fans are fired up with Archer as AEW goes picture in picture!
Archer stalks Blade, drags him over, and tags in Moxley. Moxley runs in to RAM a shoulder into Blade, then he snapmares Blade to run and Penalty Kick!

Tag to Moxley and he stares Kingston down before running in to forearm smash Blade! Moxley brings Blade up to back suplex, then drop an elbow! Cover, but Kingston drags Moxley off it! Kingston flips Moxley off and Moxley gives it back. The ref keeps the peace, Moxley stomps Blade and drags him up to wrench the arm. Tag to Archer, Archer throws a stiff knee and a clubbing forearm! Archer clamps onto Blade’s ears and pulls! The ref reprimands, Archer lets go to slap Blade, and he eggs Blade on.

Winners: Jon Moxley, Rey Fenix & Lance Archer, by pinfall
Kingston’s “demons” beat him down and won out in the end! Moxley tells his best frenemy that he’s up for it any time, but then the GOOD BROTHERS attack! Gallows & Anderson beat Moxley down for what he said about coming after Omega! And speaking of, Omega heads to the ring! “Hey, Jon! Wow, don’t look so tough right now, now do ya? If it’s not a junkyard, you’re looking kinda pathetic.” Omega promised he wouldn’t come out here, but he’s making an exception.
Omega holds up papers and asks if Moxley has an idea of what they are. This is Omega’s “late Valentine’s Day gift” from Tony Khan. Omega says this is Omega’s title contract that has a rematch clause slipped inside. But no worries, Omega is in a giving mood because he’s such a charitable guy. So Moxley WILL have his automatic rematch for the world title, and it’ll even be at Revolution. But Omega still holds the right to name the stipulation. If the Biz Cliz keeps beating Moxley up, he’ll just keep coming back. If they beat him in a regular wrestling match, Moxley will be all jealous and still come back.
Moxley wants to talk about breaking necks and putting people in the ground?! Is that what Omega will have to do to Moxley!? In that case, how about this? Omega VS Moxley, in an EXPLODING BARBED WIRE DEATH MATCH?! Moxley wants to talk about having a trigger to pull, but Omega is the loaded gun! Omega gets too close to Moxley and Moxley headbutts him! Gallows & Anderson club Moxley down, Omega V-TRIGGERS! And then V-TRIGGERS again! Omega is furious!
“Look what you did to me! Show him the belt!!” Omega wants Moxley to look at the cut he just put on Omega’s head, and the shining AEW World Championship belt! Omega vows that Moxley will NEVER get the title back! And it’ll only get worse from here! Will Omega not only end Moxley’s career but his life at Revolution!?
This was a wild episode for AEW, and they’re really powering up the Revolution card. For one, with not having Cody & Velvet VS Shaq & Jade on the PPV, they’re more or less throwing a ladder match together. It will be a great match just based on the three we know in Cody, Pentagon and Scorpio, and I would think they’ll “determine” the other three through matches for something to put on the 2/25 card or even 3/3 card. But just as I felt with the constant Casino Battle Royal or Casino Ladder match, etc, it just seems like they aren’t sticking to the rankings system they’ve established. The TNT Champion should face the contenders outside of the #1, who of course faces the world champion. Now, if there were tied records, I could understand needing a match to name a challenger, but it doesn’t sound like there’s much of that in AEW, despite a lot more 50-50 booking than you’d think.
The segment with Sting “calling out” Team Taz didn’t go quite the way I expected. Starks and Hobbs being stuck outside of Florida aside, I did not think Sting was going to fail to stand tall tonight. Though, I suppose he couldn’t stay strong forever, because then the math would mean he and Darby lose at the PPV. But I did not think Sting’s first bump in a long time would be a POWERBOMB from Brian Cage! That looked rougher than normal, but I suppose Sting made it through that or news might have gotten out he was hurt. Maybe that was to test the waters, so to speak. If Sting can take that, then I suppose he is more than ready to take other bumps.
Hangman & Hardy had a really good tag match with TH2, and I actually like the swerve on Hangman’s swerve. Yes, Hangman tricked Hardy into having a match with a kayfabe crap ton of money on the line, but obviously Hardy would have privately realized something in the last week. He got the drop on Hangman, but the Dark Order reinforced Hangman, so I have a feeling the Dark Order will have a part to play at Revolution. Cassidy had a quick match with Luther, and I like that Chuck Taylor and Serpentico had parts to play, too. Cassidy VS Miro will be a lot of fun, whenever it happens, but I’m thinking Trent returns to help Cassidy win and get payback on Miro.
Deeb VS Riho was an incredible match, and all for the opening round. Riho will be taking on Thunder Rosa in the next round, and as great as it will be, I have a feeling Rosa wins because Britt Baker might make it to the US Bracket finals. Anna Jay VS Britt Baker and Nyla Rose VS Tay Conti being on a separate YouTube broadcast from AEW Dark is fine, but I feel like those matches would’ve helped give reason to watch Dark. I feel like Britt and Nyla are the given winners, and then we’d get a rare Heel VS Heel, which would be pretty cool for AEW to give us. FTR VS the Sydals was a great match, and we got a great payback attack from Jurassic Express. The Six Man Tag on 3/3 is going to be a lot of fun, and I have a feeling Tully takes the pin from Marko Stunt so that the others stay strong.
The AEW World Tag Team Championship match was an awesome match, and there was a lot of good story from the Inner Circle tonight. Jericho actually getting on MJF for egging Sammy on was good detail for how there is a lot of dysfunction still in the group. Jericho saying Sammy is dead to him was a bit of a surprise, but I suppose Jericho being selfish is just standard. The Bucks win so that we still get them VS Y2MJF, but the Inner Circle mostly standing tall after makes a lot of sense. I also like how it tied into the story with Omega & The Good Brothers. Callis couldn’t risk Omega going out there and getting hurt but the Good Brothers could. This can easily be used to bring us back to Bucks VS Gallows & Anderson, tag titles optional, maybe for Double or Nothing.
The Six Man Tag was really good, very chaotic and gritty, as it should be given the six men in it. Moxley’s team wins, of course, as Moxley needs to be strong going into both his match under NJPW and now going towards Revolution. Omega VS Moxley 3 being under such an insane stipulation is, well, insane, but they were able to deliver both in the “unsanctioned” match and the standard singles match, so going balls to the wall is going to just bring Revolution to a new level, provided no one actually dies. And honestly, that could go either way, partially dependent on Moxley VS Kenta, but I would think it’s still a 51-49 Omega win because there is still so much this Heel Omega can do while also champion.
My Score: 9.5/10

But this isn’t No Disqualifications! The ref and Shaq argue, Jade sets the table up, but Arn and the ref shout at her to stop.
Velvet goes out after Jade and clubs her! And bumps her off the table, to then put her in the ring! Velvet moves the table further from the ring, to bring out a second table! Velvet sets this table up, and it seems both women must just want to hurt each other, winning and losing be damned! Velvet goes up but Jade ROCKS her at the apron! Velvet shoulders back in, runs but Jade blocks the boot, only to take the ENZIGURI! Velvet hobbles and tags to Cody! Shaq gets in and he flexes on Cody. Shaq wants a test of strength, but then he switches hands on Cody. Cody still tries, they tie up, and Cody kicks low! But Shaq hits a knee! Shaq shouts out Brodie for a POWERBOMB!

AEW medics take care of Shaq.
They get him on a gurney, load him into an ambulance, and take him to local facility. Tony Schiavone wants a quick word, but… Where did Shaq go? Is Shaq magic?!

The Inner Circle heads to the ring!
The dastardly duo of Chris Jericho & MJF are here for a press conference to supposedly answer for everything they did to the Young Bucks’ father last week. Fans sing Judas for Jericho and AEW goes to break.
AEW returns and Dasha is at the official podium as MJF and Jericho take their seats. The first question is from Barstool Sports, and is about what the AEW World Tag Team Championships mean to Y2MJF. Jericho says that everyone knows he is LE CHAMPION! That isn’t just a nickname, t’s the truth! But it’s been one year since he lost the AEW World Championship, so it’s time he has a title again! But with all the accolades he has, the greatness he has, he is a seven-time world tag team champion! SEVEN! With some of the biggest names in the industry, including Dwayne Johnson and Paul Wight! But none of them are better than MJF! And it is time for them to beat the hell out of the Young Bucks, just like they did to their stupid father!!
The second question is from Conrad Thompson of Grilling JR. The fighting is over, what are the odds of letting Sammy Guevara back into the Inner Circle? MJF can’t believe “turkey tits” here just asked that. Jericho said he never wanted to hear that name again, so get out of here! Go back to Nebraska! Next question! Brandon Walker of Barstool Sports ask why they attacked Papa Buck. Why? MJF is so sick of the shmucks out there making Papa Buck out to be a martyr! He attacked Jericho first! He did! So what they did was self-defense! But the worst part is that “that old worthless sack of crap” got his blood on MJF’s custom suit!
MJF knows most people can’t comprehend how expensive that is, but to put it in ways they can, he doesn’t shop at Target and Baby Gap! And if you thought what they did to Papa was bad, just wait until they get their hands on “Malnourished Matt” and “Not so Slick, I wish my hair was way more thick Nick!” But hey, it wasn’t their idea to attack Papa Buck, no. Did the Bucks think it was that smart to bring their bitch-ass pops down here? Especially knowing there isn’t a line that the Inner Circle wouldn’t cross? The Bucks need to do better. NEXT!
And it’s Eric Bischoff from 83 Weeks. His question is two parts, and he’ll direct the first part to Jericho. Do they know the condition of Papa Buck? And in Jericho’s list of stupid ideas, where does motivating the Bucks to come at you with a vengeance rank? Just curious. Jericho tells “Eric B” to shut his mouth! And second, they don’t know the condition of Papa Buck and they don’t care! As far as Matt & Nick go- They’re here! Matt & Nick step out on stage and glare at the Inner Circle. Nick knew that once this got started, the Inner Circle “pricks” would hurt their friends. But hurting their father makes this thing personal!
Matt says that their dad is the greatest dad in the world! He taught them everything they needed to know to be the men they are today! Being compassionate, have faith, love your family! They love their family! Papa Buck did everything that MJF’s and Jericho’s dads apparently failed at with them! Papa Buck taught them to dream big, and when he couldn’t afford to put them through college, he built them their own wrestling ring with his bare hands! Papa Buck taught them not to just stand idly by and let someone else do the work. You do it yourself! That DIY spirit is what created the Young Bucks, Being the Elite, and ALL ELITE WRESTLING! Without Papa Buck, there would be no Young Bucks or an AEW!
Laugh now, but do you know what that means? Then that means MJF is still at home, unemployed, on call with the Rosie O’Donnell Show! And for Jericho, let’s be honest! He’d be jerking the curtain at “the Performance Center.” Because Papa Buck taught them empathy, faith, family and one other thing! Stand up for yourselves and maybe kick some ass! DOUBLE SUPERKICKS for tY2MJF! Things bust off with the Inner Circle but Brandon Cutler gets in! Referees rush out to stop this but that’s easier said than done! Wardlow tackles Cutler, Matt SUPERKICKS Santana and Nick tosses Ortiz! The Good Brothers are here to help out! They have tables set up and Nick ROCKS Ortiz!
Matt heads over, dares someone else to come get them, and Nick puts Ortiz on a table. Karl Anderson keeps Ortiz down while Nick climbs up! Nick aims from above the tunnel, and Matt has Santana off the stage! 450 AND MACHO ELBOWS through tables!! The Bucks are fired up and Y2MJF look worried, as they should! Will Matt & Nick teach Jericho & MJF what happens when real men fight back?
AEW profiles what it means to have an “Exploding Barbed Wire Death Match.”
America hasn’t seen something like this in 25 years! Once you hit the barbed wire ropes and trigger the switches, there WILL be explosions! Not only that, but the barbed wire will cut you up mercilessly! This will be something to remember for a long, long time because of the violence, the unknown, and the two men in it. Atsuhi Onita says the rules here are fitting for Moxley and Omega. It is unpredictable, dangerous, and painful. But Moxley’s honor won’t let him do any less to take Omega out or be forced into retirement trying. Will the Maniac take back what the Cleaner stole from him? Or will he give up everything in return?
Six Man Tag: Jurassic Express VS FTR & Tully Blanchard w/ JJ Dylan!
Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood are more than honored to have a legendary tag team wrestler come out of retirement for one night and join them in battle! But will it also be the end of them as Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus & Marko Stunt are coming #ForTheirRevenge?
AEW returns and Jurassic Express make their entrance. The trios sort out, Tully starts with Stunt and they tie up. Tully puts Stun in the corner, fires off body shots and knees, then tags in Dax.

AEW returns with Schiavone back in the ring.
The Street Fight at Revolution is coming, so Schiavone introduces… STIIIIING~! The snow, the crow and the Icon! Sting walks out and fans are fired up to see him. Schiavone says Sting came back with Darby Allin last week to take the fight back to Team Taz. Sting has never looked better, and Sting says it’s great Schiavone says that. It evolves every single week, but then Sting found out a couple weeks ago he wasn’t when he got powerbomb’d by Cage! But Sting thanks The Machine for shaking off that rust! Sting feels like he’s ready for that Street Fight!
But then Ricky Starks comes out to tell “Stinger Man” to pump the brakes. He’s here on his own, so don’t worry about an attack. Starks is sick of the “Budding romance.” We’ve seen things go back and forth, but Sting showed something Starks hadn’t seen. Sting tore it up, and Starks is man enough to admit he saw something he hadn’t seen, and that was the fire! Sting’s still got it! But even so, Starks still doesn’t see the Icon.

The Icon and the Relentless run off Team Taz, but what happens when things are finally unleashed for the Street Fight!?
Face of the Revolution Ladder Match Qualifier: Preston Vance w/ The Dark Order VS Max Caster!
Number 10 surely heard Platinum’s diss track just for him, and now it’s time for him to respond directly! Scorpio Sky also watches from commentary to see who joins him, Cody Rhodes, Lance Archer and, if he is medically cleared, Penta El Zero M at Revolution! But first, Platinum gives us a special bonus track on Preston! “Listen! Listen! This guy’s big but a small talker. I shoot you up like Lady Gaga’s dog walker! This dude is mad soft, there is no future if you take your mask off! His names 10 but a 5 in the looks department. Like the fireball just hit Ronnie Garvin! Now you gettin’ burnt up! Platinum Max, I got this place turnt up!”
He ain’t done spittin’! Negative One ’bout to catch a butt whippin’! See Max in the streets- Negative One is fired up and Vance holds him back. Caster skips the rest and that was for the best, but who will get this won and head for Revolution?

Winner: Max Caster, by pinfall (advances to the Face of the Revolution Ladder Match)
Scorpio says Caster will just be disappointed now because he’s going to lose that Ladder match! But wait, Evans did that favor to Caster as a way to get paid by #BigMoneyMatt! A whopping $4200 for taking out Number 10 of the Dark Order! This is all because Hardy hates Hangman for pulling one over on him! Caster is fine with that, but will he benefit from all 4200 reasons he just won?
AEW has big things for Revolution Weekend!
First of all, AEW Dark has a special airing on Saturday to fit in all the action before the PPV! Then, a Buy-In match has been made! Britt Baker & Rebel will face Thunder Rosa & Riho! Will The Doctor and her assistant be able to beat a former NWA Women’s Champion and a former AEW Women’s Champion in one match?

An awesome episode for AEW, and even a great go-home. I didn’t think we’d open with the Mixed Tag, but Shaq was great, of course Jade was good, and though Shaq took that table spot, it makes sense for his team to win. Jade has been waiting a long time for this debut so it makes sense for her to win and start her career off strong. Shaq’s disappearing act was interesting, I have no idea what that could mean. We got a great Six Man out of FTR and Jurassic Express, but I should’ve figured FTR finds a way to cheat and win. Shawn Spears being part of that is a natural move, and it just makes sense that he is part of their faction now. I don’t know if “FTR” will be the name that applies to the group or if they’ll have some new name, but it’s about time this happened.
Nyla VS Ryo was a great match, and I am happily surprised that Ryo won. As great in story it would’ve been for Nyla and Shida to have a rematch from Double or Nothing, I feel like it is much better for everyone watching to see Shida VS Ryo, which we certainly haven’t seen in AEW and hasn’t happened in some time. With that match up, I feel like the title match could go either way. If Ryo wins, that’d freshen up some things, even though Shida hasn’t faced everyone yet. Nyla is still considered top ranked contender, so she could still face the winner from Revolution over the Summer, and we could even work our way to Shida VS Nyla at Double or Nothing 2021, almost one year after the previous match-up.
Sting and Darby had another short spot with Team Taz, but I have no idea if it adds anything to what we’ve already seen. We got a great segment with the Inner Circle and Young Bucks, where another AEW press conference of course has Eric Bischoff for last. The Bucks had a great response promo and then a great double table spot. Maybe a little risky, but what else is new for these two? I feel like standing tall here could mean the Bucks lose, and that could also suggest who is coming out of the Casino Tag Battle Royal. PAC & Fenix win fast and then get in on the tag brawl at the end of the night. I don’t see them winning, but them getting in makes sense with Penta in the ladder match.
Speaking of, Caster VS Vance was a great match, but it makes a lot of sense in story for Vance to get screwed over by Hardy and Evans. I had a feeling the other night with Dark that Caster was going to win since Archer is already the powerhouse in that match. There is still one spot left, so either the bonus Dark gives us that qualifier, or that sixth person is the person Paul Wight introduces. That latter possibility would actually be pretty big, because Wight promises that will be a (WWE) Hall of Famer, someone everyone knows yet “not who we’d expect.” No idea who that could be, but I’d love to see them show up and do big things in the ladder match.
Meanwhile, Hardy loses the tag match tonight, but doesn’t stand tall even after he attacks, so the math makes me think Hangman loses his Q1 earnings. I feel like that’d work in story, because then Hangman can #JoinDarkOrder and lean on them for support. Hangman’s struggles have been great pacing in his AEW career, and maybe even his career as a whole, so giving up money to find the friendships that will really build him back up is a great element to that. With this, Hangman can totally become AEW World Champion come All Out 2021 or so.
My Score: 9.6/10

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall
Cassidy sends the Sparta (New Jersey) Cowboy out to pasture and is rolling towards Revolution! And speaking Speaking of that match with Miro and Kip Sabian, the Kentucky Gentleman is part of that to get payback for what they did to Trent! Will the Vision be used to show the Best Man and Superbad what’s in store for them on Sunday?

The Vision had the Kentucky Gentleman seeing red, but he’s cooled off now. Will Chuck bring this kind of heat to Miro and Kip on Sunday?
Preston Vance w/ The Dark Order VS Daniel Joseph!
Max Caster’s had a lot to say about Number 10, but actions speak louder than words. Will Vance dance with DJ Footloose and show he can drop the beat, too?

Tag Career on the Line: SoCal Uncensored VS The Sydal Brothers!
Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian are determined to be tag team champions in their careers again, and the Casino Battle Royal might be their best bet. But that means they have to get through Matt & Mike tonight! Will SCU blind Matt’s third eye and bend yoga master Mike all out of shape?

Pressure makes diamonds, and right now Kaz and Daniels are shining! Will the Addiction be just as unbreakable and get the AEW Tag Team Championship gold?
At just under two hours, this was another good Dark. I will say, with the coming of Dark Elevation, I hope Tuesday Darks don’t have to be as long anymore. Elevation will probably have the more meaningful matches that are meant to advance story from Dynamite, as well as the matches that are more than just established name(s) VS jobber(s). I don’t know what that’ll mean for Tuesday Darks in my schedule, and the fact that Elevation is going to be on Mondays means I won’t get to it right away (though, I don’t even do that with Tuesday Dark), but it might make things a little easier in the long run. Plus, for normal viewers who just watch these programs, I would think it’s much easier to have one hour one night, then the other hour another night.
All that said, I really liked Stu VS JD, those guys can really throw hands and move around. Stu winning in singles and Uno winning in a trios match proves the Dark Order OG can get it done no matter what situation they’re in, and establishes that the Dark Order really can dominate all divisions. Caster and Vance had good matches, and it makes a lot of sense for Vance to have an easier time with his opponent than Caster did with his. But the newest Acclaimed music video was a lot of fun. Vance VS Caster could honestly go either way, but given who is already in the Face of the Revolution Ladder match, I feel like Archer is more than enough powerhouse for it, so that Caster might get the win off Bowens interfering. Plus, imagine the great diss raps Caster could come up with when he has Pentagon, Scorpio Sky, Lance Archer and Cody Rhodes to go after.
