Here are your results for this week’s edition of AEW Dark:
Matt Hardy defeats JAH-C via submission:
Hardy would start the match asking JAH-C if he was sure he wanted to have the match, and perhaps he should have taken Hardy up on his offer. Making his AEW debut, JAH-C got very little in as far as offence goes. Hardy locked in The Leach after two Side-Effects for the win. During the match, Hardy would also take the time to mock his Fyter Fest opponent Christian Cage, by doing his own incarnation of the 5-second pose.
Brian Cage defeats Foxx Vinyer via pinfall:
Another AEW debut, as Foxx Vinyer made his first appearance in the company. Vinyer would get in less than a handful of moves on Cage, before he was defeated. Brian Cage would lift him up before planting Vinyer down with the Drill Claw for the win.
The Acclaimed (Anthony Bowens & Max Caster) defeat Derek Pisaturo & Roman Rozell via pinfall:
In just their second appearance on AEW Dark, Pisaturo & Rozell got in plenty of offence at the beginning of the match. Bowens would begin to dominate the contest for his team, The Acclaimed would keep up for the remaining portion of the match. A series of tag team manoeuvres would secure The Acclaimed yet another win on AEW Dark.
Diamante defeats Harlow O’Hara via submission:
Pre-match Diamante would target Big Swole in a backstage promo, calling her out for being a sidekick in her group.
Once the match got started, Diamante would dominate O’Hara and looked to have the win secured after a close two-count. It wasn’t long after that she would send O’Hara packing on her AEW debut after locking in a submission for the win. Post-match she would again target Big Swole.
Ethan Page defeats Ryan Mantell via pinfall:
Page’s tag team partner Scorpio Sky would join Taz and Excalibur on commentary for the match, providing an entertaining change of pace. He didn’t have to last long in the booth, as Ethan Page would secure the win in dominant fashion ahead of his Coffin Match against Darby Allin tomorrow night.
Big Swole defeats Sahara Seven via submission:
After being called out earlier in the show by Diamante, Big Swole would faceoff against Sahara Seven who was making her AEW Dark debut. Despite Seven seeming to have Swole on the ropes early on, she would eventually tap out when Swole locked her into a submission. Post-match. Swole would grab a microphone and unleash a barrage of a promo aimed at Diamante.
Dante Martin defeats RSP via pinfall:
The match started off at a frantic pace as Martin would leap to the outside, before keeping up a breakneck speed for the rest of the encounter. Despite RSP having a brief display of dominance, it was Martin who looked at his very best, showing off his full range of high-flying offence. Picking up the win with a float-over stunner, Martin is now 11:4 in AEW for 2021.
The Dark Order ( Evil Uno & Stu Grayson) w/-1 defeat Papadon & Sean Maluta via pinfall:
Commentary throughout the match would play up the difference between the chemistry of The Dark Order in comparison to the tag team debuting Papadon & Maluta. This difference in chemistry would prove to be vital to the result of the contest as some lethal combination offence saw The Dark Order pick up the pinfall victory.
Ryan Nemeth w/ The Wingmen defeats Markus Kross via pinfall:
One of the longer matches on the show, both Nemeth and Kross would have their moments in a match full of comedy and character work. The Wingmen continue to be one of the most entertaining parts of AEW Dark. Nemeth would eventually pick up the win via pinfall.
Penelope Ford defeats Robyn Renegade via pinfall:
Ford would have almost complete control over the match, using heelish tactics to her favour and dominating the contest. Despite brief glimpses from Renegade, she would pick up another loss leaving her record at 0:6. Ford, who would win with a gutbuster still has just one loss in 2021. She will be in action against Yuka Sakazaki tomorrow night at AEW Fyter Fest night one.
Frankie Kazarian defeats Austin Green w/ The Diamond Sheik via submission:
Making just his fifth appearance in a single’s match this year, Kazarian would start off the match being dominated by Green. It would not take Kazarian long to find his footing as he would bring an end to The Diamond Sheik’s interference, before submitting Austin Green.
Lee Johnson & Brock Anderson w/ Dustin Rhodes & Arn Anderson defeat Mark Davidson & Aaron Frye via pinfall:
A match that fits exactly what AEW Dark should be used for as some of AEW’s rising talent get much-needed experience. After some back-and-forth offence, Anderson and Johnson would pick up the win after a thrust kick/spinebuster combination.
Julia Hart w/ The Varsity Blonds defeats Madi Wrenkowski via pinfall:
Wrenkowski who made her return to AEW after two months away from the company would stop Hart from getting in any offence. Dominating the inexperienced Hart, it looked like she would be picking up a victory on her return. But, once Hart got back into the contest she would pick up a two-count, before finally getting the win with her splits leg drop.
The Blade w/ The Bunny & Matt Hardy defeats Jake Tucker via pinfall:
The Blade would beg Tucker to hit him in the opening moments of the contest, offering him a free punch. That would be all that Tucker would manage, as The Blade would defeat Tucker in just a few minutes with the Dr Bomb.
Private Party (Isiah Kassidy & Marq Quen) w/ Matt Hardy defeat Joeasa & Deonn Rusmann via pinfall:
Private Party would continuously distract the referee, ensuring that the heelish tactics they used would go unpunished. After a brief match, they would pick up the win via pinfall after stereo kicks on Rusmann. Though his team may have managed limited offence in the match, Rusmann would produce a beautiful spinning powerbomb that is worth checking out.
“Powerhouse” Will Hobbs defeats Travis Titan via pinfall:
A blink and you’d miss it encounter, Hobbs would jump Titan before the bell was rung. Once they were both in the ring, Hobbs would almost immediately plant Titan for the win.
The Gunn Club (Billy & Colten) defeat The Wingmen (Cezar Bononi & JD Drake) w/ “Pretty” Peter Avalon & Ryan Nemeth via pinfall:
Billy Gunn was controlled and dismantled in the early portion of this match, getting in little to no offence as The Wingmen isolated him away from his son. Once Billy managed to get the hot-tag to Colten the tides seemed to turn. A close two count almost secured The Wingmen the win after a corner senton from Drake, but it wasn’t meant to be. However, just a few moments later Colten would hit the Colt-45 on Bononi for the win.
