Tony Shiavone welcomes us to Dark and tells us tonight’s matches.


Match 1
Brandon Cutler vs “The Bad Boy” Joey Janela
(referee: Bryce Remsburg)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Joey Janela wins via pinfall after an avalanche brainbuster
Time: 8:32

Match Thoughts
Good match. After seeing Janela in such a violent match last week on Dark, this was a nice change of pace. Cutler gave Janela a pretty good fight, and he helped Janela look good in a straightforward pro-wrestling match.


Cody sits down with QT Marshall for an “Undesirable to Undeniable” interview.


Match 2
“The Librarian” Leva Bates w/ “The Librarian” Peter Avalon vs Nyla Rose
(referee: Paul Turner)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Nyla Rose wins via pinfall after the Beast Bomb
Time: 4:40

Match Thoughts
Pretty good match. Nyla Rose was dominant. Bates did get some offense, but it felt like Bates was kind of slow tonight, and her offense didn’t have a big effect on Rose. The chances Bates had were when Avalon was distracting Rose.


Alex Marvez welcomes Scorpio Sky and Frankie Kazarian. Sky doesn’t know how Christopher Daniels is doing after the attack from the Lucha Brothers. Kaz isn’t sure how ready he and Sky will be for their match against the Dark Order. One thing SCU knows is that they will go on to beat the Lucha Brothers and win the tag titles.

Jenn Decker welcomes Pac. Pac is pissed at Moxley, and he’s going to make Moxley pay.

Match 3
T-Hawk & CIMA & Private Party vs “The American Nightmare” Cody w/ Brandi Rhodes, MJF & “The Natural” Dustin Rhodes & Young Bucks
(referee: Rick Knox)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Dustin Rhodes pins T-Hawk after the Final Reckoning
Time: 15:02

Match Thoughts
Good match. There was a lot of comedy in the match, mostly from the Rhodes/Jackson team. In addition to the funny stuff was a very fun and energetic eight-man tag match. Seeing the Rhodes and the Jacksons all together was great.


Show Impressions
This was another good episode of Dark. This episode felt more like it was about giving some wins to people who might need some going forward while last week felt more competitive, but it was a good show regardless.

Match of the Night
Cody & Dustin & Young Bucks vs Stronghearts & Private Party
This was super fun.
