It’s a Dark Order Civil War!

AEW Elevation Coverage

Things are escalating in the Dark Order dysfunction!

New Jersey gets elevated as the Bad Boy and Concrete Rose return home, but it isn’t a happy homecoming! Will AEW’s former odd couple finally get even?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Thunder Rosa VS Kaia McKenna; Rosa wins.
  • Six Man Tag: Gunn Club VS Anthony Bennett, Ray Jaz & Leon St. Giovanni; Gunn Club wins.
  • Alan Angels & Preston Vance VS Evil Uno & Colt Cabana; Angels & Vance win.
  • Orange Cassidy w/ Chuck Taylor & Kris Statlander VS Mike Verna; Cassidy wins.
  • Private Party VS Teddy Goodz & Jorge Santi; Private Party wins.
  • Hikaru Shida VS Masha Slamovich; Shida wins.
  • Joey Janela w/ Kayla Rossi VS Sonny Kiss; Kiss wins.
  • Santana & Ortiz VS JT Dunn & Avery Good; Santana & Ortiz win.
  • Dustin Rhodes VS QT Marshall w/ The Factory; Dustin wins.

QUICK NOTES

Orange Cassidy’s match might be one to watch, to see if the Hardy Family Office goes after him or not. The Dark Order VS Dark Order match is of course on the must-see, that story is growing into something really good. Janela VS Kiss is going to be one to watch, too, because of the heat in the story. I’m rather surprised we’re getting Dustin VS QT Marshall, but after QT lost to Paul Wight, he doesn’t really have a direction so maybe something comes of this.

AFTER WATCHING

Newly Heel Gunn Club has new everything, which is cool to see. I assume this means they’ve left the Nightmare Family to strike out on their own again, and given they’re still undefeated in tag and trios action, there needs to be a chance for them to build to a tag title match. Otherwise, the criticisms of “wins and losses matter,” both shoot and in kayfabe, will keep going. A bit surprising to see the Dark Order Civil War tag match happen so soon on the card but it had a lot of great character work on top of the great ring work we know they all bring. And I feel like Angels even upgraded his mask, that holofoil looks great.

HFO didn’t go after Cassidy but you could kayfabe that they were more worried about their own match right after. “Masha Slamovich” is a great name because it’s so cheesy. Masha got a good showing against Shida, maybe she’ll make a good impression on AEW or a partner like Impact or NWA, she might have potential if she can find a good character personality outside of “she’s Russian.” Little disappointed they didn’t make Janela VS Kiss the main event since both are New Jersey boys. Cincinnati got to have Brian Pillman Jr. as a Rampage main event, why can’t the Bad Boy VS Concrete Rose be on the same level?

Janela VS Kiss was still the match it should’ve been, with Janela getting bloodied but his new partner in crime getting involved, all while Kiss showing both strength and endurance. Kiss turning things around to get the win was great, but of course Rossi helps Janela get payback. I hope this feud continues so that Janela and Kiss can have something extreme, like an Unsanctioned Match. Dustin VS QT being the main event was a bit of a surprise, but Santana & Ortiz definitely did squash Dunn & Good. It was a very good match, Lee Johnson showing up was a good touch, but I still wish there was a build to a Bunkhouse Match for these guys.

QUICK NOTES

Honestly, a lot of the first special got a lot of good ones, I’m not sure what’s left.

AFTER WATCHING

It’s always kind of a trip to look back even just a couple years in pro-wrestling. I forgot there was a time when Cody interacted with the rest of The Elite. Honestly, that 8 Man was a lot of fun, I wonder if we’ll ever get interactions between the Elite and Nightmare Family again. And I forgot one of Penelope’s earliest matches in AEW was such a great one with her, Britt, Riho & Yuka. I should’ve also remembered about the Cruise of Jericho having Dark matches. Also I forgot Caster had such a bad mustache when he first showed up. And I forgot how rough that Falls Count Anywhere got, like the table spot where Kip and Penelope don’t break the table but just bounce off it.

Miami gets Dark!

Published

on

AEW Dark 2

Half a dozen for Dark in South Beach!

AEW still has more in Miami! Will Gunn Club continue their undefeated tag streak? Will Nyla Rose, Diamante & Emi Sakura be a winning combination again?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Jamie Hayter w/ Britt Baker & Rebel VS Tiffany Nieves; Hayter wins.
  • Six Man Tag: The Gunn Club VS Dean Alexander, Diamond Sheik & Alex Chamberlain; Gunn Club wins.
  • Six Woman Tag: Kris Statlander, Red Velvet & Thunder Rosa VS Nyla Rose, Diamante and Emi Sakura w/ Vickie Guerrero & Lulu Pencil; Statlander, Velvet & Rosa win.
  • Lance Archer VS OT Fernandez; Archer wins.
  • Frankie Kazarian VS Aaron Solo w/ The Factory; Kaz wins.
  • 8 Man Tag: Daniel Garcia, 2point0 & Serpentico VS The Dark Order; The Dark Order wins.

QUICK NOTES

Nyla Rose, Diamante & Emi Sakura just won on Elevation, they might lose here since Statlander and Rosa are now on Velvet’s team. Gunn Club will surely win and really should be on the tag title chase after Full Gear to give credence to their story. And that 8 Man Tag looks like a lot of fun, as it’ll be Stu Grayson, Colt Cabana, Alan Angels and Preston Vance for The Dark Order.

AFTER WATCHING

An even 40 minutes is a nice size for this episode. Hayter makes QUICK work of Nieves, and I was right about Gunn Club of course. We got another great Six Woman Tag, and I like that there was a tiny bit of dysfunction in Nyla-Diamante-Sakura over getting after Thunder Rosa. Velvet essentially gets redemption from Elevation by winning it for her team here. And as I said with Elevation, AEW could really get their women’s tag division plans back on track at any moment. With Dynamite, Rampage, Elevation and Dark Classic, there is plenty of airtime for them to feature the women’s tag titles (or medals if they want to do that again) and can give fans reason to tune into everything.

Jade Cargill and Mark Sterling have a good promo segment to hype up the TBS Championship Tournament bracket. Jade really can come out of the tournament the champ, or even lose in the finals to then go right after Britt Baker. Hell, Jade wins the title then goes after Britt anyway to try and be AEW’s first double champion. Well, double AEW champion since we’ve seen plenty of cross-promotion champions. Archer dragging out his opponent then brutalizing him is great stuff, as was Eddie Kingston on commentary to watch that match. The Factory really needs to add more people, they’re already kinda stale at just QT, Solo and Comoroto.

And of course, that big 8 Man is the main event, no Luther is a surprise but there was still plenty of dysfunctional interaction between Serpentico, Garcia and 2point0. Angels sticking with no mask is also a surprise, but he gets a great showing for himself. I hope we get more Dark Order VS Hardy Family Office, that seemed like a promising feud. At the same time, we need to see 2point0 and the various Dark Order duos get into the tag title chase after Full Gear and on the way to Revolution.
