AEW DARK
October 8, 2019
Washington, D.C.

Every Tuesday night at 8/7c All Elite Wrestling brings you dark matches from the previous week’s television tapings in a brand new format called AEW DARK. You can watch the entire show in the video above.

DARBY ALLIN vs. CIMA

Allin takes a second to soak it all in but CIMA rushes him with double knees in the corner. Allin fights back with hard elbows and a springboard armdrag sending him to the floor, then follows with a dropkick and a series of tope suicidas, throwing his whole body at him. He goes for an early Coffin Drop but CIMA had it scouted rolling out of the way and sends him head-first into the post. A modified Stretch Muffler is applied but Allin starts throwing headbutts to break the hold and starts working over his opponent’s knee. CIMA gets a swinging DDT from the second rope, but it’s not enough.

The two start trading forearms and chops until Allin jumps into a wild float-over stunner and heads to the top rope. CIMA again has the Coffin Drop scouted and gets his legs up, then follows with a Backstabber for two. He keeps the pressure on with knees to the back and neck, then comes off the top rope with a nasty Meteora to the back of the head – still not enough. Allin kicked out so hard he flipped himself over. CIMA heads to the top turnbuckle going to the well again with the Meteora but Allin rolls out of the way and he crushes his knees. Allin with the Yoshi Tonic and the Coffin Drop connects this time for the pin.

Winner: Darby Allin


8-MAN TAG TEAM MATCH
LUCHA BROTHERS & THE HYBRID 2 vs. BEST FRIENDS & PRIVATE PARTY

Orange Cassidy is out with the Best Friends to the biggest pop of the night so far. This is absolutely nuts from the opening bell. Pentagon Jr. went to do his “Cero Miedo” taunt but Angelico stopped him and said they were the “A Team” and would show the Lucha Bros how it’s done. Good luck with that. Lots of superkicks early leading to a wild brawl. Eventually the ref gets things under control and the Best Friends start hammering Jack Evans with double-team moves, one after another. They look to fly but the Lucha Bros catch them with superkicks to cut it off. Orange Cassidy casually walks over and stands right in the middle of all the chaos, and gets decked by Angelico. Private Party hit Angelico with the craziest Tornado DDT that I have ever seen. Bodies start flying again leading to the Lucha Bros doing topes into all six guys. Cassidy gets his revenge with a big dive, hands still in his pockets, taking out everyone again. As they start winding down (ramping up?) to the finish, Fenix somehow runs across the top rope and kicks Chuck in the head, followed by the Penta Driver from his brother to seal the deal. Fenix did another tope suicida just to make sure nobody could make the save.

Winners: Lucha Brothers & The Hybrid 2


ALLIE & BRITT BAKER vs. BEA PRIESTLEY & PENELOPE FORD

Baker takes Ford to the mat to get things going but a distraction from Priestley allowed them to take down the doctor with an STO combo. She rallies back with a handspring back elbow and tags in Allie, who fires off with chops and a clothesline in the ropes, but she makes the mistake of playing to the fans and Priestley kicks her in the face. The heels work her over with quick tags for a few minutes, and knock Baker off the apron to stop the tag at one point. Allie and Ford collide in the middle of the ring – both women down. Hot tags are made and Baker starts trading chops and elbow strikes with Priestley before taking her down with a running lariat. A swinging Fisherman’s neckbreaker hits, but it’s not enough. She follows with a butterfly suplex right into a roll-up from Allie, who made the tag in the midst of it, but Bea broke it up just in time. Things break down into a 4-way brawl and Allie hits a Jawbreaker as the ref tries to get control back. Baker applies the Rings of Saturn to Ford and starts wrenching her jaw open – BRUTAL – and gets the submission.

Winner: Allie & Britt Baker

Tony Schiavone welcomes us back to the Control Center to run down the tag team tournament. He also announces the main event for this week’s AEW Dynamite as Chris Jericho and Sammy Geuvara will take on Dustin Rhodes and Hangman Page.

JURRASSIC EXPRESS vs. SOCAL UNCENSORED 

Marko tries to put Christopher Daniels in a headlock but he can’t even reach the dude’s head. Instead he takes him down with a series of snap armdrags, then stomps on his back. Jungle Boy tags in but runs into a springboard leg lariat from Kazarian. Luchasaurus chops Daniels down with one thunderous hand, and that’s all he has to do as he quickly tags in Marko, who does a ridiculous double team move with Jungle Boy that I could not even begin to describe. He basically powerbombed his own partner on top of Daniels while also dropping a leg. Sky tags in and Marko literally just bounces off his chest, crashing to the mat. Hilarious. Luchasuarus tags in and goes face-to-face with him, but Kaz attacks from behind and the two work together to take the big man down. Lucha rallies back and starts cleaning house on his own, complete with a standing moonsault. Jungle Boy tagged in and threw Marko into a 619 on Daniels. Stunt with a running Shooting Star but it barely has an effect. Things totally break down with bodies flying everywhere. Lucha gets tossed outside and SCU sets up for the Best Meltzer Driver Ever, but Jungle Boy rolled up Kaz for a nearfall. Kaz and Sky hit him with a double powerbomb/backstabber combo. That’ll do it.

Winners: SoCal Uncensored

Chris Jericho Reveals Who Is The Most Underrated AEW Wrestler

Published

on

Chris Jericho recently revealed who he believes it the most underrated member of the AEW roster at the moment.

The AEW star spoke with David Penzer on Penzer’s ‘Sitting Ringside’ podcast, where he admitted that his upcoming Winter Is Coming opponent, Frankie Kazarian, is one of the most underrated wrestlers in the business.

“There’s not a more underrated guy in AEW and maybe even in the wrestling business than Frankie Kazarian. That guy has a great match every week. Doesn’t matter if he’s on Dynamite, if he’s on Dark, if he’s in a singles match or a multi-team match, whatever it may be. He brings it every night so when I saw that, I’m like, ‘Man, I’d really like to have a match with him’ so, that’s kind of how this whole storyline was started and kind of tie in Chris Daniels as well so, it’s always cool when you find guys that have been around for such a long time that you never even touched. It’s like finding this rare piece of gold if you’re coal mining or something where you just can’t believe this has just been there all this time and I’ve never come into contact before so, it’s gonna be a fun couple of weeks for sure.”

Jericho also touched on the career of The Undertaker, discussing how they never really crossed paths in a major way at WrestleMania, but admitted they could have one of the top storylines today if it was booked.

“But other than that, Undertaker was at the top of the top and I was kinda wavering up and down, never in between. If Undertaker was still there and I went back today and challenged him to WrestleMania next year, that would be one of the biggest matches you could have, but that is because of the work I’ve done over the last four years. So, it was never really seen as the main event, even when I was in the main event of WrestleMania against Shawn [Michaels] and against Hunter, Taker was doing other stuff as well so we just were never peaking storyline-wise at the same time to be worthy of that WrestleMania spot because once again, it was always about the streak until Brock [Lesnar] beat him whatever year that was and I think I was gone at that point, or close to it. So, to go up with The Undertaker, you know you were one of many that was gonna fall so you had to be the right guy because most people knew, ‘Oh, he’s gonna lose anyway’ so it was hard to create a storyline with him and we just never crossed paths at the right time to do that.” (H/T to POST Wrestling for the transcriptions.)

The Young Bucks Discuss Their T-Shirt Popularity & Working With Hot Topic

Published

The Young Bucks

The Young Bucks are notorious for their merchandise, and being top sellers, which included them getting their shirts in Hot Topic stores.

The AEW Tag Team Champions were recent guests on Talk Is Jericho where they discussed the rise in popularity for their shirts and how they began experimenting with ideas to see what would happen.

“Our shirts, they got popular off of Pro Wrestling Tees basically. That’s where everybody picked them up,” Matt noted. “We grew with them. We were one of the first five wrestlers to open up a shop with Ryan Barkan at Pro Wrestling Tees. We got really good at designing shirts because at that point, we weren’t afraid to try things, because if people hate it, they don’t buy it. There’s nothing in stock. There’s no loss.

“So we started really experimenting with funny things and great ideas, designs that maybe I wouldn’t print up 1000, maybe I’ll get stuck with 999. Any time we would say a thing or do a thing, we would have a shirt the next day, and you could never do that in the t-shirt business. It would take weeks to get a shirt, and here it is, I would say something on a Saturday or have a viral video, and by Sunday, I have a new shirt. That’s what changed the business for us, and that’s what got our shirts everywhere.”

The brothers then revealed a funny story about how Hot Topic was blown away with how many of their shirts that they saw during a WrestleMania weekend. The company actually contacted WWE to get a deal with them, not knowing that the tag team didn’t work with the company.

“They were just blown away, and they’re like, these are the shirts we need at Hot Topic,” Matt said. “No offense to all these other shirts, this is what I’ve seen the most of.

“They contacted WWE,” Nick revealed. “They said, ‘We want The Young Bucks t-shirts and the Bullet Club t-shirts,’ and they go, ‘Uh, they don’t work for us. Go find someone else.'”

Obviously, they would eventually get in contact, and The Young Bucks discussed how the process went on getting so many of their shirts into the stores all around North America.

“So they get in touch with Ryan,” Matt continues. “Ryan tells him, ‘Yeah, I work with these guys,’ and Ryan got with me. And I talked to Hot Topic, and they said, ‘We would like to put some of your shirts in our stores.’ ‘Absolutely.’ So we made a deal to get Young Bucks stuff in, and Ryan, who worked with New Japan, he got a licensing deal to get the Bullet Club stuff in. They were just going to start with Bullet Club stuff and Young Bucks stuff, and they were going to try it in a couple of the shops.

“It wasn’t many, just to see what it would be like, and the eleventh hour, they decided, you know what, we’re gonna throw Kenny’s in there too because we want the three. So we started with the three, and I don’t remember the exact number of stores, but they put them out. They said they’d never seen anything like it, they were sold out immediately. So within, I want to say 24 hours, Hot Topic already reached out to me and they’re like, we’re going to every store in North America. We’re like, ‘oh my God.'” (H/T to WrestlingInc.com for the transcriptions.)

Darby Allin Discusses Jeff Hardy Comparisons: “I Feel Fine About It”

Darby Allin

Darby Allin has been compared to Jeff Hardy a lot since joining AEW, and he recently spoke about those comparisons.

The current TNT Champion spoke with Inside The Ropes where he admitted that he’s never tried to get compared to Jeff, but he is fine with them happening.

“I feel fine about it,” said Allin. “You know, I never searched to get compared to Jeff Hardy, like I never care to compare – but if it’s there, it’s there. But to me, there’s always one Darby Allin and one Jeff Hardy.”

When it comes to potentially working with the WWE legend, admitting he would love to do that. But while Jeff is in WWE, his brother Matt shares a locker room with Darby at AEW, which is a match he is also interested in having.

“Yeah, absolutely. I would love to step in the ring with someone who is as creative and driven as artistically as he is, I feel like he would always be able to go. Even with Matt, I want to step in the ring with him and just create some art.”

While Darby is currently feuding with Team Taz, he made it clear during the interview that his next major goal is to main event a PPV event for the company.

“I want to make the TNT Championship one of the most important things in professional wrestling, period. I want to main event a pay-per-view. That’s a big one. So right now the TNT Championship is my biggest concern and then main-eventing a pay-per view.”
