Commentary: Excalibur, Nyla Rose
Ring Announcer: Dasha Gonzalez
Last week on Dynamite, MJF beat Adam Page to claim the Dynamite Diamond. Wardlow also got in DDP’s face.
Tony Shiavone and Dasha Gonzalez welcome us to AEW Dark. They also inform us that Nyla Rose attacked Shanna during a meet and greet in Chicago. Therefore, Rose will be doing commentary this week instead of Shanna (who was scheduled to join Excalibur).
Brandon Cutler vs Jimmy Havoc
(referee: Mike Posey)
Result: Jimmy Havoc wins via pinfall after the Acid Rainmaker
Good match. Cutler had a bit of a new look, but it didn’t help him too much with Havoc. Culer did get more offense than I expected, but Havoc had control of most of the match. Havoc was smart and dirty, and he went about his business in an entertaining way.
Cutler is upset at Havoc for stapling a check to his head at the end of their match. Havoc is told that he’s going to be fined for stapling someone in the head again, but Havoc says he already paid with the check stuck to Cutler’s forehead.
The Dark Order recruitment video showing a guy joining a meeting is shown again.

“The Chairman” Shawn Spears w/ Tully Blanchard vs “The Concrete Rose” Sonny Kiss
(referee: Rick Knox)
Result: Shawn Spears wins via pinafall after C4 (running Death Valley Driver)
Pretty good match. Sonny Kiss was a ton of fun early in the match, but Spears quickly took over and dominated. This could have been longer, but what we got was entertaining.
After the match, Spears throws Kiss out to ringside. Spears sets up Kiss for a piledriver on the floor, and Blanchard assists Spears with a spike piledriver.

Marko Stunt & Jungle Boy vs Proud & Powerful
(referee: Aubrey Edwards)
Result: Santana pins Marko Stunt after a sit-out powerbomb (Ortiz) and running knee strike (Santana)
Good match. Jurassic Express was fun, but Santana and Ortiz dominated large portions of this match. At one point Santana and Ortiz passed Stunt back and forth in a stalling suplex position for like two minutes. Jungle Boy came in with a hot tag and led Stunt in a burst of offense, but the Inner Circle was aggressive and in-control tonight.
After the match, Sammy Guevara comes down to the ring and joins Santana Ortiz in an attack on Stunt and Jungle Boy. After a while Luchasaurus comes out and takes down the Inner Circle. Jake Hager walks down to the ring. Hager shoves Luchasaurus, and that leads to the two of them trading strikes. The Inner Circle recovers and Luchasaurus gets quadruple-teamed. The Young Bucks run down and help Jurassic Express take care of the Inner Circle.
This was a fun show with a nice end to the night.
