This is the new thread to discuss the free weekly Youtube show for AEW, AEW Dark, which is on Tuesdays at 7PM Eastern



Wiki posted:

AEW Dark, or simply Dark, is a professional wrestling web television program that is produced by the American promotion All Elite Wrestling (AEW) and airs every Tuesday on their YouTube channel at 7pm ET.

The program features dark matches taped before and after the preceding episode of AEW Dynamite, as well as feature segments highlighting the previous week's Dynamite and interviews with AEW personalities. The show was previously hosted in studio called "AEW Control Center" by Tony Schiavone[2][3] and Dasha Gonzalez.

The show, as always, will be uploaded here

I'll try to keep the OP updated with the card for the upcoming Dark, for convenience sake. Today's Dark:

https://twitter.com/AEWrestling/sta...074171130404872

Butcher and the Blade (with Eddie Kingston) vs Calvin Stewart and Puf
Billy and Austin Gunn vs M'Badu and Cruz

I don't know if Hobbs needs to be with anyone. Cage has Team Taz, Archer has Jake, Luchasaurus has Jurassic Express and Wardlow has MJF for the time being.

Let Hobbs be the big dude that does what he wants because he's a big dude and what are you going to do about it?

At the very least, let him have a bunch of good matches and establish himself first.

Yeah, I want to see him establish himself and his style more before I think about what faction he'd fit. If any.

What about wrestlers named Shaw? We still make Hobbs do the imaginary tiger gimmick, but we also make Shaw do a Jason Statham gimmick, and make them a trio: Fast and Furious Presents Calvin & Hobbs & Shaw.

Will Hobbs is cool and he should definitely be used on Dynamite, if for no other reason than his Spinebuster being an Arn Anderson-level work of art.

Usually Dark at least lets them get some of their poo poo in, so I doubt it's just a squash.

Yeah, I feel like Dark has been good at not just doing quick squashes, especially if the jobber actually can go.

Yeah he did.

I thought there was something going on with Carter and IMPACT, but that may have just been a workout or something. AEW should definitely keep him on their radar, and look at Lee Moriarty and Tre Lamar while they're at it.

I'm expecting a fairly low-key Dark tonight. Not a lot of matches and none of them are hectic tags.

I'm game.

Thou shalt have no other gods before me. For I the LORD thy Sun God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of cosmic prestige upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.

Here comes Dark.

I’m reading the YouTube comments and all the people they want signed to AEW, which is cool to see.

Then I think to myself, “What if Tony really did just sign everybody they tell him to sign?”

Would the roster eclipse 600 wrestlers to spread out between 3 hours of programming?

You bet your rear end it would and it would rock. The first ever stable of 75 wrestlers would rock.

The 70v70 tornado tag match to end all tornado tag matches.

Sign me the gently caress up!
