Jon Moxley speaks.
“I’m here tonight on AEW Dark: Elevation, not feeling too great.” He’s been jumped, burned, lacerated and left for dead. His friend’s leg got broken by a group of vicious thugs so Moxley isn’t in the best mood, either. How does he remedy this? He does his favorite thing to do: drop somebody on their head, knock someone unconscious and kick a hole through someone’s chest! Moxley is happy to be in action tonight!

Backstage interview with Thunder Rosa.
Wrestling in the very first Dynamite Lights Out match, in one of the wildest matches, what are her thoughts? Well it was AEW’s first women’s main event, and she is the first Mexican wrestler to have main-evented AEW, so it was big a few different ways. But mostly, it was just beautiful. She thanks all the fans who supported her, and please watch it over and over again! She won’t take all the credit, this was for everyone. Not like Britt Baker, she’s trying to be the princess of AEW. Rosa is honored to be back in the ring already, and to take on one of her students in Alex Gracia. She’s all about female empowerment and representing Latinas so-
Diamante interrupts and wants to double check. Rosa says she represents Latinas? To get this straight, no one represents Diamante but Diamante. Rosa gets that, but she hears jealousy, too. Whoa, let’s keep it G for a second. Rosa doesn’t even go here! And yeah sure, she was the main event, made history, so good. But she also painted a big target on her back. Well when you’re the best, you’re a target everywhere. What’s Diamante got for her? Well Diamante’s ready to step to the plate. Oh, is that so? Call it, and Rosa will be ready whenever she wants! Will Diamante look to take aim at La Mera Mera in the Spring?

Backstage interview with The Hybrid2.
Dasha asks Angelico if she could get a word with Jack Evans. Angelico tells Jack that Dasha wants an interview with him, again. Jack grumbles as he walks out of the trailer. Dasha asks that with him going up against Jungle Boy, how does Jack prepare for a match with an athlete of JB’s caliber? He doesn’t need to prepare. He just needs coffee, and that puts him in position to knock “Jungle Dork” unconscious. And as for AEW putting him up against these “Jurassic People,” he might just take JB’s unconscious body and melee “Luchadorkus” and “Marko Runt” with it after. Jack is sending a message. And the message is that heavy creamer does a body good.
Why is Angelico dancing without music? The music’s all up in his head, Dasha. Now please, leave them alone. Jack mopes his way back inside his trailer, but will he be crashing going against Jungle Jack Perry?

Backstage interview with Ethan Page.
Dasha congratulates Ethan on his win tonight, and he asks if she’s actually shocked. Last time they spoke he said he’d rack up wins, and he’s doing that. yet for some unforeseen reason, AEW wants to overlook like superstars like Ethan. Why isn’t AEW rolling out the red carpet for a star talent like All Ego? No one here has even treated him nicely! No, wait, that’s a lie. Ethan had a great conversation with someone today. But Ethan won’t do what AEW does and overlook talent. Ethan is going to enjoy the rest of this show. He thanks Dasha for this time, and promises to keep winning matches.
AEW’s Rising Stars of the week: Bear Country.
Boulder and Bronson have teamed for three-and-a-half years because they were floundering as singles wrestlers. It all made sense because they’re both from the same banner of Create A Pro-Wrestling, and they worked and trained together. They have a lot of value apart, so putting that together would make it all explode. It took time to mesh, throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticks. Boulder didn’t want to be an indie star, he wanted to be a TV star, and Bronson was there with him. Bronson’s mom would always call him Bear, not his first name, Joe. The nickname stuck, and here we are.
Everything was going great, they were white hot, until the pandemic. They decided to go all in on wrestling to get food on the table, and they got the call from AEW. They showed up to Dark, did their best, and Cody Rhodes loved it. And that’s when the doubt washed away and the fire ignited. They know they’re going to do their best and be different from the rest. There’s a lot of handshaking and hugging nowadays, but Bronson grew up watching the Road Warriors and Stone Cold Steve Austin. They didn’t hug you or shake hands, but they’d have a beer with you. That’s Bear Country. And AEW wanting to put the best tag division in the world meant these two HAD to be here.
There’s a difference between getting somewhere and staying there, and these two plan to stay in AEW for a long time. This is where they get to hurt people and make money doing it. “AEW IS Bear Country.”
Bear Country VS Private Party w/ Matt Hardy!
Bronson & Boulder are rising stars, but they still need to reach the top! Will they make sure Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy end up lost in Bear Country?

Quen knees low, sucker punches Boulder, but Boulder doesn’t even blink! Quen runs around, back drop! Quen lands on his feet, hot tags to Kassidy and Boulder!

Boulder throws Quen out, blocks the kick to ROCK him! Kassidy leaps but into Boulder’s fireman’s carry! Kassidy fights, Quen springboards, but he’s just added on!? FALL AWAY SAMOAN DROP COMBO! Cover, TWO!! The Private Party survives Boulder’s big bear power, but Bronson is at the corner! Hardy gets on the apron, Bronson tags in but the ref is busy with Hardy! Marko Stunt trips up Hardy!

Despite Fun Size’s help, Hardy’s boys pull off the win after all! Will they continue to make that big money for Matt? As for Stunt, he apologizes to the Bears, but Boulder is pissed!

Stunt gets some shots in on Bronson but the teams regroup. Will the Jurassic Express be next to get lost in Bear Country?

The Closer has a new edge and he’s sharpening it with every passing moment. Will that edge cut down the Yoga Monster and get Scorpio back towards a title?

Another good episode, but I have to be honest, I don’t really know if I can keep doing Elevation AND classic Dark if they’re both going to be pushing the two hour limit every week just because they can. Elevation is the better of the two because it feels like Dark in the early days, while Dark now feels like WWE Main Event on Hulu. And once WWE moves NXT to Tuesdays after WrestleMania, it’ll just get harder to do Dark when it barely ever has anything meaningful. And of course Monday is dominated by WWE’s Raw. At the same time, Elevation and Dark are on YouTube, so do I need to be covering it or should we all just be watching and let it be that? Comments on this article or the social media posts related to this article would be greatly appreciated.
As for this episode itself, I found it interesting that Orange Cassidy got a new theme song. I thought what he had was good, but also maybe he should’ve gotten something that fits him just a little bit better, if such a song exists. Shida & Conti made a great team, both having real judo training. I’m thinking they’ll win on Dynamite but it’ll be off Allie, not Nyla. And it might be Tay getting the win to solidify her spot as the current #1 contender and then head for a match with Shida possibly before Double or Nothing. Diamante stepping up to Thunder Rosa was good, too, that will be a good match to tide Rosa over before going for the title herself.
QT’s aggression is a strong sign that he’s turning. He will definitely turn the exhibition into a real fight, and then we see who sides with who in the Nightmare Family/Factor. And Ryo VS King was good just on the great character work. Aneki has great charisma, King can definitely keep up with her in that department, and it really got the fans into it. Ryo can also build back up on the side, helping get the AEW Women’s Division midcard going strong.
My Score: 8.2/10

Fans fire up and Ethan sees Hardy was right, mostly. Darby Allin is watching backstage, keeping his eyes on fellow Young Pillar. We also see Sammy Guevara and wife, Tay Melo, are watching, but also kissing, on the couch. Hardy gets in the ring, the ref checks him, and Ethan takes advantage by TOSSING JB over the barriers!

Hardy CLUBS away on JB, then grabs the legs. JB is in the ropes, for the ROPE GUILLOTINE! JB sputters, Hardy covers, TWO!

Darby seems worried, Sammy is being fed snacks by Tay, because JB is in pole position! But wait, here comes MJF! The AEW World Champion has the mic and fans are torn as he kisses his Dynamite Diamond Ring. MJF has his music cut, and he continues towards the ring. MJF tells them, “I know you people aren’t very bright around these parts, but I run the show around here, so shut your mouths.” MJF then tells JB that he didn’t appreciate JB ruining the Re-Bar-Mitzvah. On the sly, kind of a Kanye move on JB’s part. MJF isn’t sure why the fans are booing, though, they’re from St. Louis! Not exactly forward thinkers around here.
But MJF wants to tell JB this. “There was one thing you said that really stuck to my craw. You said that after our match at Double or Nothing 2020, that our career paths were very different. You had the audacity to say that I had it easy? Really? Okay. You had the audacity to say that I got to waltz away up to the top of the card.” Fans boo because they agree with JB. But MJF says JB “had the audacity to say this place was The MJF Show. And let me tell you something.” Fans tell MJF to STFU but he just says, “No. And guess what, Jack. You’re right! My job’s a joke, dude! I barely wrestle, I barely break a sweat, I get to come out here and I get to absolutely obliterate these losers.
“I waltz to the back, I collect a fat check, I get on my fat Learjet back home, the most magical place in the world, known as Long Island, New York. Which we will be going to next week, tickets still available, AEWTIX.com! Don’t miss it, baby! And then there’s your career after our match, Jack. Let’s be honest, it’s been kind of mid. But I’ll give you credit, I’ll give you credit. You worked your ass off. You scratched and you clawed your way back up the ladder here in AEW by having standout match after standout match, leaving blood, sweat and tears in this ring for these fans.” Fans cheer that because it’s true.
MJF says he’s honest about that. But he doesn’t recall the fans ever saying thanks. Fans chant it now, “Thank You, Jack!” Too late, St. Louis. And MJF doesn’t remember JB being rewarded with that much TV time, either. So y’know what? JB has every right to be mad. But here’s the problem: JB has no right to be made at MJF. JB can’t even be mad at AEW. The only person JB should be mad at is himself. Allow MJF to explain. “After our match at Double or Nothing 2020, when we stole the show, when we went to war in 95 degree weather in Jacksonville, Florida, all to prove we were the future of this sport…
“I walked to the back and I had a foreign funny feeling for the first time in my career. I felt like I had just met my equal inside this ring. For the first time in my career, I had felt like I’d met the man I would be waging war with for the rest of my life. For the first time, I met a man inside this ring that I respected. So I swallowed my pride, I found you in the back that night, and I shook your hand. Do you remember what I said to you that night? I gave you very pertinent advice, Jack. Do you remember what I said?” JB nods and gets a mic of his own.
“Let me see if I can remember the advice that I got from the great MJF. What did you say to me? You told me I had all the skills, and all the potential in the world, blah blah blah. But what did you say? ‘Nice guys always finish last.’ And you told me that if I ever wanted to be as big and successful as you, what’d I have to do? I had to ditch all of my friends and not care about anybody but myself. Is that right? Is that what you told me?” MJF says that is literally what he told JB. And what’d JB do? He continued to hang out with Marko Stunted Growth, Dino Douche, and to make things even worse, Christian Cage! Great call there, by the way.
And all those guys were holding JB back. By the way, don’t think Hook will be any different. JB could’ve listened to MJF, followed him to the top, and they could’ve ran this place. JB could’ve been the world champ by now! This place could’ve been not just the MJF Show, but the Jack Perry Show. But no, JB had to be the good guy for these people? Really? The fans cheer but MJF says the fans might cheer him, but where has it gotten JB? Where has being a good guy gotten him? Three years later, and MJF is the best pro-wrestler in the world! The man with the grandest prize of them all, he is the AEW World Champion!
And Jack…? He’s still just “Jungle Boy.” JB says if he’s being honest, a long, long time ago, he thought that maybe, somehow, someway, JB and MJF were gonna be friends. And to be very honest, in a lot of ways, JB wishes he was more like MJF. He wishes he could talk like MJF. He wishes he had the confidence that MJF has. He wishes that he didn’t care about anyone else but himself. He wishes that he didn’t care about lying and stabbing people in the back to get what he wanted! He wishes that he didn’t care about being the most selfish, narcissistic piece of SH*T in this entire place! Fans cheer the biting sarcasm.
MJF tells the fans to shut up about the POS. But JB says all that ain’t him. If his road to the top is harder than MJF’s because of that, then so be it! JB does it his way! And when JB beats MJF and becomes AEW World Champion, at least JB won’t wake up alone every day and hate what he sees in the mirror. MJF scowls but then laughs. That was really good! Give it up for Jungle Boy! That was actually really good. Congrats, it only took JB four years to learn how to talk! But now listen to MJF. JB is right, there is one thing that JB said that is right. At one point, maybe, just maybe, they could’ve been friends. Partners, even.
“But not anymore, man. Because you turned out to be a massive disappointment. Because you have turned out to be no different than everybody here and everyone watching at home. You’re weak, Jack. Weak in the body, weak in the mind, weak in the soul, weak in the heart, and by the way, I pulled aside that hot piece of ass girlfriend of yours, Anna Jay… And you know what she told me, Jackie Boy? She told me you’re weak between the knees!” JB TACKLES MJF!! JB rains down fists and fans fire up! MJF CLAWS JB’s face! Fans boo but MJF stomps JB into a corner. MJF whips but JB reverses and MJF hits buckle! JB stomps away on MJF now!
Fans are thunderous and JB drags MJF up. MJF whips, but the COMEBACKER hits! JB is all fired up as he stands over MJF, then he stands him up to run and- NO, MJF bails out! Fans boo as the Devil of AEW runs away from Jack Perry. MJF says he’s still champion, and Jack is just Jungle Boy! But will AEW soon be living that Jungle Life?

They’re in the trainer’s room as Omega gets his arm checked. Callis sees Marvez and says to clear the air, there’s drama with everything from last week. Omega knows Callis. Well, okay, given that, it is fair. Callis was the one who grabbed Hangman, Hangman is strong, he broke free and Callis fell over. He feels the fool, but he accepts the fault. But then Callis’ question to Omega is, why would Omega automatically think his “friend” (complete with air quote fingers) was the one who attacked Callis? What is it about their friendship? Well, Hangman’s pushed things before. But Callis says there’s no time to think about that!
Omega is coming off what is perhaps the greatest match in Dynamite history last week, and he’ll do it again tonight against Jeff Cobb. Callis wants Omega to focus on the match while Callis takes care of this drama with Hangman. Callis will apologize! Callis heads off, but will his apology go over well? Will the Best Bout Machine be able to focus on giving Cobb his best?
Matt Menard & Angelo Parker are out on the town with The Acclaimed!
Daddy Magic says, “Here we are! We are going to have a night on the town. We hired a camera guy to document the whole thing.” We’re getting a montage already of the good times Menard, Parker, Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Billy Gunn have. They rented a private suite for the St. Louis Blues game! And they have giant scissors! Get it? And this is all on Chris Jericho’s dime! Billy says that means they’re setting themselves up. For what, a good time? YEAH~! They enjoy the game, they get shakes, they get steaks, and the JAS appreciates the Acclaimed. Whatever they want, on the house! But how will the night end?
So it comes down to this: are you in or are you out? Bowens says they will make a decision next Wednesday. Just tell The Ocho thanks, salutations, and see you soon. Menard thinks it went well, and Parker sees the bill. He hopes this goes well…
Six Man Tag: The Blackpool Combat Club VS Dalton Castle & The Boys!
Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta have been ripping into whoever gets in the ring with them, claiming it is all business. Will the Peacock and the Tate Twins think it’s just business here tonight? Or will the BCC start to take over the AEW and ROH Trios Divisions?
OH NO! The BCC doesn’t even wait for their entrance, they attack Castle & The Boys from behind! Fans fire up as Moxley RAMS Castle into steel steps! Yuta does the same to Brent Tate!

Backstage interview with Hangman Page.
Marvez is with the Cowboy now and asks him about last week. Hangman rode with one of the Young Bucks in the ambulance to the hospital, so first and foremost, how are they doing? Hangman says they’ve been better. Nick has a separated shoulder, Matt has a partial bicep tear. But they’re going to heal. Then second question: who did this? Is Marvez kidding? The Blackpool guys, the BBC or whatever. Wait, who invited Callis in here? Callis says he deserves that, but after grabbing the wrist, falling over, he’s very embarrassed. But that’s okay, Callis said he will make this right. Callis is sorry, he shouldn’t have gotten in between Hangman and Omega.
Hangman is a great talent, so he is welcome to come around, and Callis sincerely apologizes. Really? But then the BCC attacks Hangman! Callis is stunned but still holding out his hand as the BCC stomp away! Callis says hello, and then Moxley DECKS him! Claudio takes Callis’ sunglasses. Yuta says he looks good. The BCC then head off, and Callis sits up, his eyebrow busted open! What is to become of Omega’s focus now with all this and his match up next?
IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship: Kenny Omega VS Jeff Cobb!
The Cleaner won this title off Will Ospreay at WrestleKingdom 17 back in January, but the Imperial Unit claims Omega’s been ducking him. Will Cobb’s return to stateside help him bring this title back to NJPW and the United Empire? Or will he not be able to stop the God of Pro-Wrestling?
Backstage, Tony Schiavone asks Omega about what happened to Callis & Hangman. What? Omega didn’t even know! And now he has this title match… Omega says he has to focus on that. The long introduction is trimmed down, the belt is raised, and we see if Omega keeps his reign going past three months!

The Gunns speak.
Austin tells FTR, “There’s no doubt that you guys are one of the best tag teams we’ll ever see in this generation. The sad thing about it is, it took you 19 years to get to that point. It took me and Colten two.” Colten says they’ve already held the AEW World Tag Team Championships as many times as FTR have. The Gunns have busted their asses for these titles, and showed up week after week. Meanwhile, FTR took time off to bitch and moan and politic for a title shot. And these guys are heroes to fans? FTR, look deep into their eyes when the Gunns tell you this. “You used to be our heroes. Then we met you. Now we hate you. And we do not respect you.”
“We’ve respected one person our whole lives, that’s our father. And you saw what we did to him.” “What the hell do you think we’re going to do to you?” Next week, AEW Careers VS AEW Titles. And this time, FTR’s tagline will make sense. Because it’ll be #TopGuysOut of the company. Will the Gunns prove they’re not just Ass Boys? Will they prove they’re worthy champions?

Jade Cargill speaks.
The undefeated AEW TBS Champion stands with Leila Grey, the beat-up Mark Sterling, and Mark’s new assistant. “This Taya girl is a huge problem here at AEW. Not only did we serve her a Cease & Desist, she ignored it!” Leila echoes that Taya ignored it, and Jade shouts, “But not just that! She used MY move, the Jaded, on MY Baddie, but not just that, but on my lawyer! This is truly an outrage!” Leila echoes, “Outrage.” Sterling says it is outrageous that Taya broke Sterling’s nose. But that’s why this week, he brought his assistant and processor.
They know Taya is set for another match on Rampage, and if she uses the Jaded, the chicken wing facebuster, they will send the official court order and SUE her! Ow, his nose… Jade says Taya thinks she’s the only goddess. But understand this: Jade is THE Goddess here in AEW! Because she’s #ThatBitch. Now, Sterling, go get the job done. Will La Wera Loca listen to any of this? Or will Rampage be another outrage?
Juice Robinson speaks.
“Friday night, on Rampage, Rock Hard Juice Robinson against Action Andretti. It’s not gonna be the wrestling match you signed up for, Action. You’re in a fight against somebody who’s real mad. Who’s got tunnel vision on right now for Ricky Starks! Every punch is gonna be for Ricky Starks. You’re gonna be feeling it, Action. You do yourself a favor, Ricky Starks, pull up a chair and you watch the example I make out of Action Andretti. And you need to know that that’s just a small pinprick of the ass kicking that I’m gonna give you in New York City!” The Booster is fired up, but will he be ready for Action?
Ruby Soho w/ The Outcasts VS Willow Nightingale!
The Runaway ran away from all the good will she had built up in AEW, all because she wasn’t number one. She ran back to what was familiar in some old friends who’d been where she’s been, not caring what her new friends thought about that. Will Willow show Ruby that it’s better to be sweet than sour? Or will Ruby show Willow there’s No Future for goodie two shoes?

Just like the good Book of Hobbs states, this TNT Championship will never, ever leave my waist.” The Powerhouse has spoken, will there ever be a final chapter in his story?

Garcia pie faces, wrenches, and wristlocks back. Cole rolls, wrenches and wristlocks again, but Garcia rolls to shoot around and waistlock for the SLAM!

Fans rally behind Cole but that upsets Garcia. Cole goes to a corner, the ref has Garcia stay back so he can check Cole. Garcia just soaks up the heat in the meantime. Cole crawls back out, Garcia reels him back in! Garcia tucks the arms, STRAITJACKET PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!?!?
Garcia is furious but the fans are thunderous that Cole survives! Cole goes to a corner, Garcia runs in, but into a SUPERKICK! Cole goes back up, PANAMA SUNRISE!! But Cole isn’t done! Garcia sits up in a daze, Cole runs and BOOM!! Cover, Cole wins!!
Winner: Adam Cole, by pinfall
The comeback is complete! Cole’s head was a bull’s eye, but Cole’s head was always in the match. And here comes Britt Baker to celebrate with her man! They even kiss! Gold ‘n’ black streamers fly, will this be a new era for the Undisputed One?
Wait, here comes Chris Jericho! The Ocho, the Wizard, Le Champion storms right to the ring to check on Garcia. Fans sing Judas as Jericho helps Garcia out of the ring. Jericho glares at Cole, then helps Garcia up the ramp and out of those streamers. Jericho is tempted to glance back at Cole but chooses not to. Does the Jericho Appreciation Society have a new pro-wrestler to target in Adam Cole, BAYBAY?
A great AEW, and given AEW All Access debuts tonight, it makes good business sense for Cole to main event. It was his big return, he is a big part of the All Access material, and it was a great win in a great match with Garcia. Jericho coming out at the end to try and steal the spotlight for just a moment of course is a sign that Cole is going to feud with Jericho going towards Double or Nothing, and that is going to be great stuff. Good quick promo from Hobbs, and him still mentioning Wardlow, they’re just making sure we all understand this is still gonna circle back to Hobbs VS Wardlow even though there should’ve been a way to cap this off before. Darn you, QT.
Really good match from Ruby VS Willow, but of course the Outcasts get at Willow the whole time. Willow loses but it is technically protected because of the interference, and we get another moment of Riho and Skye Blue making a save. It didn’t work out, so good move to have Hayter go out there. Hayter VS Riho happening next week will be good stuff, probably up until The Outcasts interfere. Then somehow, someway, we’ll finally get Blood & Guts set up for the Women’s Division. And then decent promo from Jade and her faction. Between only booking one women’s match a show and stretching things towards special episodes or PPVs, this is gonna be a build that’s too long, again.
Decent promo from Juice, but it kinda flies in the face of Juice saying he isn’t gonna wrestle in Missouri since he hates Missouri. He should’ve thrown in that he is being forced into this. Juice will definitely win against Action, and maybe Juice beats up on Action so that Ricky Starks shows up to chase Juice off, thereby hyping up their match for next Wednesday in Long Island. Good promo from The Gunns to hype up the tag team title match next week. Obviously since that match is happening after WrestleMania, it would seem FTR isn’t leaving to go back to WWE, they’re likely going to win to take those titles back.
Really fun montage of The Acclaimed hanging out with Menard & Parker in St. Louis. I do like that The Acclaimed is stringing Menard & Parker along, they’re definitely not joining the JAS. That will upset them and the JAS will want a match where I’m sure the stipulation is, if The Acclaimed loses, they must join the JAS. And then the JAS will lose that and look like dummies. Anyway, great title match from Cassidy VS Butcher. Good overbooking as Blade, Trent and Chuck get involved, and this was a great return moment for Best Friends. Trent & Chuck VS Malakai & Brody on Friday is going to be really good stuff, and maybe Best Friends challenge for the trios titles at some point.
Really good stuff out of this BCC VS Elite story they’re building. The BCC of course beat Castle & The Boys, but they really up the Heel heat with the ambush. And then they beat up Hangman and bust open Callis, which was really surprising. Face Moxley bled all the time, but Heel Moxley makes everyone else bleed. Omega VS Cobb was awesome stuff, but I suppose it’s fine that Omega wins. Bryan making his return was a great surprise, and then what a wild moment with him turning to be on the same page as the rest of the BCC. And right there is this year’s match for Men’s Blood & Guts: the full BCC against the OG Elite, Omega, Hangman & Bucks, and that is gonna be awesome.
And of course, great stuff in the opening. JB VS Hardy was really good, and it tied into The Firm’s story with Hook, which did have the #JungleHook story on the side. MJF and JB had a great promo segment to follow, and I have a feeling MJF is gonna have segments like that with the other Young Pillars before we get the official #1 contender. Sammy VS Konosuke on Rampage is going to be awesome stuff, and I hope Callis comes around to keep on that whole recruiting of Konosuke. I would think Sammy will win because he needs to keep pace with JB, and then Darby will also win a big match on Dynamite or Ramage to do the same. Honestly, this needs to end in a Triple Threat of JB VS Darby VS Sammy to name THE #1 contender, that’d be the best course of action.
My Score: 8.8/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (3/28/23)
QTV gets Dark!
QTV is in Universal Studios!
After helping Will Hobbs hold onto the AEW TNT Championship, QT Marshall & Aaron Solo get back in action! Will this be one for the headlines?
- AR Fox VS Nick Comoroto; Fox wins.
- Queen Aminata VS Skye Blue; Skye wins.
- Evil Uno VS Alexander Moss; Uno wins.
- Marina Shafir VS Steph De Lander; Shafir wins.
- Zack Clayton VS Schaff; Clayton wins.
- Top Flight VS Liam Gray & Adrian Alanis; Top Flight wins.
- QT Marshall & Aaron Solo w/ Harley Cameron VS Austin Green & Vary Morales; QT & Solo win.
- Brady Booker VS Serpentico; Brady wins.
- Konosuke Takeshita VS Cole Karter; Konosuke wins.
A good line-up here. Just as I was wondering where Nick Comoroto was, he’s here on Dark to put AR Fox over. For those unfamiliar, Steph De Lander is formerly Persia Pirotta of NXT, though she has a very different look now, I almost didn’t recognize her. Brady Booker, formerly Bodhi Hayward, is back in action, good to see him. And while most of these matches seem pretty straight forward, I feel like Queen Aminata VS Skye Blue is the one that could go either way. Skye’s been building herself up in AEW and ROH but Aminata is impressive in her own right.
