This week’s AEW Dark was taped in Chicago, Illinois over All Out Weekend.
Excalibur and Taz were on commentary because apparently it is illegal for AEW to tape a show without Excalibur and Taz on commentary.
Penelope Ford beat Alice Crowley (3:20)
I feel like they have lost the plot with Kip Sabian and the box on his head. Ford dominated, though Crowley landed a stern chop that made an impression. Ford dropped Crowley from behind while she slid into the ropes, hit a handspring elbow into the corner, and charged with a boot. Ford got the submission victory with the Muta Lock.
In the back section, Alex Marvez reported on the uproar in Hikaru Shida’s locker room. Rebel and Britt Baker emerge, apparently holding out to keep Shida from teaming up with Tony Storm on Dynamite last night. It was announced later in the show that Athena would replace Shida, teaming up with interim women’s champion Tony Storm against Baker and Serena Dib.
Dante Martin & Matt Siddle beat The Wingmen (Caesar Bononi & Nick Nemeth) (6:19)
Taz joked about his long-running lawsuit with Martin. I’m not sure if it’s time to make fun of the lawsuits at AEW, but here we are.
At the start of the match, there was a really sloppy dive from Martin and Siddle as they tried a hip toss off the apron, but were originally injured by a fall on the wingman. Siddle took the brunt of the punishment from Nemeth and Bononi, but caught Nemeth with a storm and countered a slam with a DDT from Bononi.
Martin gets the tag and uses his momentum to frustrate Bononi and Nemeth, but Bononi presses Martin out of the corner as he and Nemeth deliver an assistant fireman carry slam. Siddle stuns Nemeth with a question mark kick and Martin comes out on top with Nojiv to receive the pin in a fun match.
Sky Blue & Queen Aminata beat Diamante & Amy Sakura (w/ Baliyan Akki) (4:01)
Diamante hit a hard German suplex on Blue to gain the lead, followed by a backbreaker by Sakura with a double underhook suplex. Blue caught Diamante with a kick and tagged Aminata, who nearly hit a flatliner for a fall. Blue came to the floor with a crossbody on her opponents. Back in the ring, Blue caught Sakura with a superkick, and knocks her down on the mat to get the pin.
Danhausen beat Peter Avalon (2:15)
Avalon did a very bad copy of Rick Roode. I think he looks like “The Genius” Lanny Poffo anyway. Danhausen hit a German suplex and a pump kick, and then cursed Avalon. Danhausen locked in the submission to take the win. It was short but fun, and the crowd was huge in Denhausen.
Matt Hardy beat Angelico (6:32)
Hardy is trying to get away from his former colleagues one by one.
Angelico takes Hardy down with an armdrag, and Hardy responds by sending him head first of all the turnbuckles. Literally all 12 turnbuckles. What a crook Hardy drags him by the legs into a sit-out powerbomb so that he falls. Hardy goes for a side impact, but Angelico responds with a Greco-Roman elbow to the face, followed by an Enjiguri and stomps.
Angelico put Hardy on an armbar. Hardy worked his way out of the catch and hit the side impact for a nearly fall. Hardy went for the Twist of Fate, but Angelico got through an Oklahoma roll and rolled for a near fall. Angelico found a small package and a la magistral crib for a pair of near falls. Hardy hits Angelico with a Twist of Fate for the pinfall.
After the show ended, a spectacular promo piece featuring Jon Moxley vs Sammy Guevara aired. That four minutes alone (seen below) made it a must-see show.
