Squash. Kong of the match, and Brandi shouted instructions for Kong to make the beating even worse.

The Hybrid2 & Kip Sabian w/ Penelope Ford vs Frankie Kazarian & Scorpio Sky (AEW Tag Champs) & Christopher Daniels
(referee: Mike Posey)
Result: Frankie Kazarian pins Jack Evans after SCU Later (with Scorpio Sky)
Good match. The first part of the match had Christopher Daniels seeming to doubt himself in the ring. He hesitated a few times and eventually paid for it. Sky and Kazarian came in later in the match and looked as good as ever though.
This was shorted than any other Dark so far, but it was still good. I don’t really mind the shorter length.
Match of the Night
TH2 & Sabian vs SCU
This was a fun main event, and it had a little bit of a story element to it as well with Daniels’ hesitations.
