MY THOUGHTS

I find it funny that after wondering how Elevation and Dark might get shorter with touring coming back, Dark stuffs itself full again. At the same time, AEW just seems to be getting bigger and bigger, with Rampage on the horizon for three televised hours and anywhere from two to three hours on YouTube. That said, opening with Lance Archer mauling Zicky Dice even before the match was not what I was expecting. Nor was I expecting the double tunnel set-up for Daily’s Place returning. Jake the Snake continues to be great on commentary for Archer, and Archer turned Dice into dust for a great opener.

Abadon continues to be scary as hell, she continues to win, and I am still hoping to see Britt Baker dealing with Abadon just to avoid Thunder Rosa. Willow Nightingale does get a good showing against Abadon, a lot of good character work, but I feel like no one will ever not be afraid of Abadon. Bononi VS Cyrus is a really good match because both guys are BIG guys. Nemeth’s interference failing was a great little bit, too, but Bononi still wins out. I see potential in Cyrus if he can do well on the mic or comes up with a character fans can get behind.

Matt Hardy has a good promo with The Hybrid2, and it helps give kayfabe to why Angelico is facing Christian this Friday on Dynamite. Matt Justice got to start off strong, but WOW that dive onto railing and nothing else. That was a ballsy spot for Justice to be on the bad end of, but it shows his own toughness. Angelico still wins so he has momentum going into the match with Christian, but Justice’s toughness also translates into Angelico’s own strength and ability. Tay Conti had a strong match with Markova, Conti is winning and is considered the #2 contender, she might be in line for a title match while Britt avoids Rosa.

The Daily Brothers, aka the Amazing Graysons, got roughed up by Chaos Project but still got to have a good showing in their debut loss. I’m a little surprised AEW insisted they change their names, though. I get that the Graysons themselves are referencing DC Comics and Dick Grayson, aka the original Robin. But c’mon, it’s not like the brothers are cosplaying Robin in the ring. Now it just looks weird that they have “Grayson” on their tights but they’re the “Daily” brothers. Wouldn’t it be weirder that they’re the Daily brothers wrestling at Daily’s Place?

Joey Janela had another good promo, even though he went and meme’d Big Mommy Milkers back into things. I also appreciate that Janela and Kiss are still somehow sticking together, to further imply this is going to implode at some point. Kiss not having Janela ringside despite the promo was also part of that. Kiss VS Solow was really good, showing Kiss’ toughness, but given Kiss had no back-up and Solow did, naturally Solow wins, and of course The Factory beats Kiss up. And again, I feel like this was another missed opportunity where QT Marshall has his match right after Solow’s since he was there. Bronson could’ve made the save to call QT out, they have their match, which was very good, by the way, and then The Factory is done for the night.

Stunt has a good match with debuting Dominguez, someone finally closer to Stunt’s size. Fans love Stunt, Stunt is a lot of fun to watch, just don’t expect him to get a singles title. Unless AEW comes up with a literal AEW Dark Championship. Well, even then, I think other people get that belt other than Stunt. Vickie continues to belittle Justin Roberts but I feel like she has almost too much Heel heat right now. She made it a bit tricky for Andrade to debut on Dynamite last Friday, and she always makes it hard during any entrance for Nyla Rose since fans are booing so hard. Nyla of course rips her opponent apart since she’s moving up to take on Britt, too, after that burger tossing during the celebration. Britt will definitely need Rebel to counteract Vickie and help her cheat Nyla when that showdown happens.

With Thunder Rosa being the #1 contender, I’m surprised she wasn’t in the main event. But I suppose it was a given she was beating Megan Bayne. Bayne already has a great character just on presentation as a sort of Greek Amazon or even demigod, I think she could be a strong competitor if given time to give mythology themed promos. Maybe AEW Rampage can be used to get the Women’s Division going as strong as the others. Women’s midcard title? Another attempt at Women’s Tag medals or whatever? We can only hope.

The Dark Order brings another unique formation with Stu Grayson, Colt Cabana and Preston Vance. Cabana still isn’t numbered, but I feel like he’d be Number 8. Stu is “Player Two,” 2 + 8 = 10. They of course get a win because Vance is going to team with Hangman to take on Team Taz, and because they were facing a random assortment of Dark jobbers. Why did it take me until today, putting this article together, to realize “The Sea Stars” are called that because it’s “The Sisters,” just said with exaggeration and almost an accent? The Sea Stars have a good match with #SwoleKings, but Swole, King and Velvet are a strong trio so of course they’re all staying strong this week.

Dante Martin has a good promo to hype the match, and how great for him to be in the main event with a veteran like Matt Sydal with an actual main event length of time. Okay, 15 minutes isn’t a lot of time but for no commercials and as strong and as fast as these two can go, that’s a lot of time. The match itself was awesome, with both guys showing off truly innovative moves. Dante keeping up with Sydal at just 19, going on 20, is incredibly impressive. It was a touch disappointing that Dante didn’t win, but no shame in it given the showing he got. Here’s hoping that when Darius is 100% again, we get Sydal Brothers VS Top Flight for an even wilder match to build on this one.

My Score: 8.3/10

Universal Studios is still the AEW Dark Arena!

As they prepare to go after the AEW World Trios Championships, AR Fox & Top Flight reunite to take on The Wingmen: Peter Avalon, Ryan Nemeth & Cezar Bononi!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Six Man Tag: AR Fox & Top Flight VS The Wingmen; Fox & Top Flight win.
  • Red Velvet VS Sofia Castillo; Velvet wins.
  • Zack Clayton VS Fulton; Clayton wins.
  • Brock Anderson & Brian Pillman Jr. w/ Arn Anderson VS Rosario Grillo & Dean Alexander; Anderson & Pillman win.
  • Skye Blue VS Renee Michelle; Skye wins.
  • Shane Taylor Promotions VS Mr. G & Dante Casanova; Shane Taylor Promotions wins.
  • Yuka Sakazaki VS Avery Breaux; Yuka wins.
  • The Workhorsemen VS Liam Gray & Adrian Alanis; The Workhorsemen win.
  • Angelico w/ Serpentico & Luther VS Konosuke Takeshita; Konosuke wins.

QUICK NOTES

A solid line-up, and I like that we’re getting to see Brock Anderson & Brian Pillman Jr. in action together after a backstage promo on Elevation not too long ago. Not sure what the team name is but two second generation stars together is a logical combination. Angelico VS Konosuke, that is going to be a great match, but I give the win to Konosuke. Red Velvet is in action again after also being on Elevation, she’s definitely building momentum towards taking on Jade Cargill for Jade’s 50th match. And good to see Shane Taylor Promotions in action here. They’ll be a strong part of the ROH Tag Team Division, even after having lost to Keith Lee after Swerve abandoned Keith.

And good to see AR Fox & Top Flight in action, and against The Wingmen. For one, good to see Avalon, Nemeth & Bononi teaming all together again. And this will be a good match to build momentum for Fox & Flight.

Can All Heart overcome the Swiss Superman?

The ROH World Championship returns to AEW Dark: Elevation, and Claudio Castagnoli takes on Blake Christian. Will All Heart survive the Swiss Superman?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Red Velvet VS Billie Starkz; Velvet wins.
  • Alex Reynolds & John Silver VS The Workhorsemen; Reynolds & Silver win.
  • Rush w/ Jose the Assistant VS Brian Pillman Jr; Rush wins.
  • Athena & Diamante VS Skye Blue & Yuka Sakazaki; Skye & Yuka win.
  • Top Flight VS Ari Daivari & Tony Nese w/ Mark Sterling; Top Flight wins.
  • The Kings of the Black Throne w/ Julia Hart VS Turbo Floyd & Truth Magnum; The Kings of the Black Throne win.
  • ROH World Championship: Claudio Castagnoli VS Blake Christian; Claudio wins.

QUICK NOTES

A pretty good line-up, and I think Athena will end up in a program for her ROH Women’s Championship coming out of that tag match. Good tune-up match for Top Flight going into their AEW World Trios Championship program with the Elite, that should be a good win. And Blake Christian is going places. He’s had good stints on NJPW Strong, he’s in ROH and AEW, he’s going to give Claudio a great match. Claudio will still win, this is mostly to get things going towards Supercard of Honor on March 31st, but Blake could easily find himself going for a midcard title like the ROH Pure Championship or AEW All-Atlantic Championship.
