AEW DARK MATCHES NEED TO BE SPOILER TAGGED IN THIS THREAD
They can be openly discussed without spoiler tags in the spoiler thread if you wish
___________________________

AEW Dynamite for 2/24 via FWOnline.com

quote:


Jon Moxley defeated Ryan Nemeth

Moxley immediately shrugged off a grapple attempt and slapped Nemeth down. He laid in crossface strikes but fell victim to a cross chop and knees. Moxley came back with a backdrop suplex before turning his attention to Nemeth's right hand with stomps and wrenches.

Nemeth took some chops but fought back with a dropkick. Moxley was unfazed and hit the Paradigm Shift out of nowhere for the decisive victory.

– After the match, Moxley grabbed a chair and a mic and sat down in the middle of the ring. He said that since he lost the AEW championship, he's known that he'll do whatever it takes to get it back.

He asked what images come to mind when you hear the words "Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch." Fire, blood, burns, torture, agony, and vintage Japanese wrestling magazines. Do they make you feel revolted and disgusted? Or do you get a sick thrill?

Moxley said he's addicted to being in this ring and laying his soul bare each and every night. The thought of the exploding barbed wire deathmatch is too attractive, it pulls him in. Omega followed a long, sad line of guys that tried to take him out, but win, lose, or draw, everyone watching will know that Moxley gave everything he had. If it comes to an end on pay-per-view, then that's a hell of a way to go out.

That was one of Moxley's best promos yet in AEW, which is saying something, considering he's the Wrestler of the Year.

**********

A video package recapped Moxley and Omega's feud.

**********

They played last week's video where the upcoming Archer-Fénix match was announced.

Even though they had great chemistry, Archer said that he'll easily beat Fénix next week. Fénix shot back in Spanish, saying Archer was the worst partner he ever had, and then they brawled.

**********

The Young Bucks took a photo with their parents in front of a truck with their images on it.

**********

Taz joined commentary for this match.

Team Taz (Ricky Starks & Brian Cage) defeated Varsity Blonds (Griff Garrison & Brian Pillman Jr.)

The Blonds controlled Starks early on until a drop-down tripped Starks out of the ring. Pillman followed it up with a nice diving dropkick for two. Pillman tried to follow it up, but Starks knocked him off on a springboard attempt and then Cage powerbombed him into the ring post ahead of the break.

Team Taz controlled the action throughout the commercial, isolating Pillman on their side of the ring. Starks landed a missile dropkick for two before tagging in Cage. Starks hit a cheap shot on Garrison, but the misdirection allowed Garrison to get the hot tag.

Garrison ran wild, concluding with a great tope on Cage to the floor. Pillman landed a springboard clothesline and then the Blonds hit a doomsday dropkick for two. The Blonds were cut off with a spear from Starks and a spinebuster from Cage, who finished Pillman off with the Drill Claw.

– After the match, the lights went out and a video played of Darby Allin emerging from the body bag. Sting's music then played, and he made his entrance with a body bag in tow. Sting opened the bag and it was HOOK inside.

Sting then pointed at the rafters, and Allin zip-lined into the ring as the two beat down Cage and Starks. We got vintage Sting, hitting the Stinger Splash and the Scorpion Death Drop. Sting and Allin stood tall as Team Taz licked their wounds.

**********

Tony Schiavone interviewed Kip Sabian, Penelope Ford, & Miro about the wedding. Sabian was mad that this interview is even taking place, because Orange Cassidy and Chuck Taylor ruined the wedding.

Miro said that he wants to wrestle Cassidy, but Chuck (Charles) is a different story. He said that Charles can come back to him and be his butler, but the interview was interrupted with a note asking if Miro and Sabian would wrestle them at Revolution. Miro said it was childish and challenged Charles to be a man before chewing up the note.

***********

Jake Hager defeated Brandon Cutler

No Inner Circle with Hager for this one. Cutler surprised Hager at the bell with some right hands, but Hager used his strength to hit a wheelbarrow German suplex. After hitting a second, Hager continued the beatdown with a big boot. The Hager bomb followed, but Hager wouldn't cover.

Cutler landed a couple kicks to make a comeback and sent Hager to the floor. He followed it up with a tope suicida and a tope con hilo, but Hager caught him on a springboard upon re-entry with a powerslam. Hager then flattened Cutler with a running lariat for the quick victory.

– Santana, Ortiz, and Wardlow ran out after the match and beat down Cutler. The Young Bucks made the save and grabbed a mic. Matt said they didn't have to wait until Revolution and demanded that MJF and Chris Jericho come out to the ring right here, right now.

Jericho's music hit, but it was a ruse, as they appeared on the video board. It was revealed that they had attacked Papa Buck, who was busted open. They then threw him into the truck from earlier, smearing blood all over images of the Bucks. Jericho said they better call a doctor, and they'd see the Bucks at Revolution. The Bucks ran in to make the save and Matt nearly caught up to Jericho and MJF, but they sped away in a vehicle.

After the commercial break, they loaded Papa Buck into an ambulance.

**********

A video played hyping next week's Cody Rhodes & Red Velvet vs. Shaquille O'Neal & Jade Cargill match.

**********

Hangman Page defeated Isiah Kassidy (w/ Matt Hardy & The Hybrid2)

This was a long match and a nice showcase for Kassidy, who looked good in a major singles contest.

Page attacked Kassidy before the bell and laid in hard shots right away. He caught a running crossbody and tossed Kassidy with a fallaway slam. Kassidy used evasive maneuvers to take advantage when Page tried to pursue, but Page regained control with a lariat.

Kassidy booted Page and went for a second-rope move, but Page returned the favor with a boot of his own. Page then landed a plancha and clotheslined Kassidy into the crowd. He set up to powerbomb Kassidy into a ringside table, but Kassidy escaped into the ring. A TH2 distraction allowed Hardy to send Page into the ring post.

John Silver and Alex Reynolds ran out to plead Page's case, and the official ejected Hardy from ringside. Kassidy still had control, however, beating down Page in the corner. Kassidy maintained control through a commercial.

Back from break, Kassidy had been targeting Page's right arm. Page wrenched Kassidy's arm through the rope, but Kassidy caught him with a forearm on the Buckshot Lariat attempt. Page sprung in with a rolling elbow for two. Kassidy hit a cyclone kick, but Page came back with a Death Valley Driver.

Kassidy avoided the sliding lariat but fell victim to a brainbuster for another near fall. Kassidy caught a boot and hit a sequence of moves that concluded with a reverse hurricanrana for two. Immediately after the pin, Kassidy tried to apply an armbar, but Page reached the ropes.

Page attempted his springboard lariat, but Kassidy countered it by pulling his arm into the ropes. Kassidy then went for a springboard destroyer, but Page caught it and hit the Deadeye for the pin.

– After the match, Hardy cut a promo over the P.A. and said he'd hurt the Dark Order that Page cares so much about. He emerged from the ramp with Alan "5" Angels in tow and tossed him through a ringside table.

**********

Alex Marvez caught up to Kenny Omega and Don Callis, who were in the process of building something called a "Moxley extermination chamber." Omega got excited about the violence and sent Marvez out of there.

This didn't really work, because they made the baffling production decision to have deafeningly loud saws going at the same time Omega was trying to speak.

**********

They recapped Monday's AEW Women's Eliminator Tournament matches.

AEW Women's Eliminator Tournament Second Round: Nyla Rose defeated Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D.

They both worked really hard but this wasn't good. Some of the near falls at the end worked but the Rebel interference is terrible, go-away heat.

Rose overpowered Baker with body slams at the start. Baker threw a fit at ringside, knocking things over, and upon re-entering the ring, Rose crushed her with a Samoan Drop and a press slam. Baker rolled to the floor again, but was playing possum as she pulled Rose's shoulder into the post.

Baker continued to target Rose's arm during the break. She also pulled off the turnbuckle pad. Once back, Rose hit a superplex, but Baker countered the follow-up with a suplex into the corner. Baker laid in forearms but was downed with strikes from Rose. Rose climbed the ropes, but was distracted by Rebel, so Rose flattened her with a uranage.

The distraction wasn't enough for Baker to take advantage as Rose hit a neckbreaker for two. Baker booted Rose and got the surgical glove from Rebel, but ran into a chokeslam. Rebel entered the ring and fell victim to a cannonball, but Baker took advantage and attempted to apply the Lockjaw. After a long fight, Rose powered out with a slam for two.

Rose messed with the turnbuckle pad, and the distractoin allowed Baker to roll Rose up for two. Baker then laid in thrust kicks and hit a crucifix bomb for a close two. Rose fought her way out of the Lockjaw again and starched Baker with a right hand before hitting the Beast Bomb, but Baker kicked out.

Baker missed a superkick and Rose hit a second Beast Bomb for the win. She will face the winner of Riho vs. Thunder Rosa this Sunday.

***********

Lance Archer (w/ Jake Roberts) defeated Rey Fénix

This was a disappointing match. It wasn't bad, and in fact was spectacular at times, but it felt more like a collection of athletic moves than a cohesive wrestling match.

The winner of this match receives a spot in the Revolution ladder match for a TNT Championship shot.

They had a mildly awkward choreographed exchange at the bell before Fénix downed Archer with a tijeras. Archer countered a handspring kick and just slapped Fénix down. Fénix sent Archer to the floor and hit his crazy tope suicida, landing in the crowd.

Fénix tried to follow it up, but Roberrts knocked Fénix off the top rope as the official checked on Archer. Fénix then barely made it to Archer on a dive off the stage. He tried to lay in strikes on the floor, but Archer overpowered him with big chops.

During the break, Fénix avoided a charging move from Archer, who went headfirst into the post. Archer regained control by battering the luchador with strong right hands. Fénix tried to fight back with chops, but Archer shrugged them off and powerslammed Fénix on the apron.

Archer continued the beatdown on the floor with a flipping senton into the barricade. Back in the ring, Archer flattened Fénix with a release vertical suplex. Fénix fought out of Blackout and hit a tiger feint kick to Archer's abdomen, following it up with a diving foot stomp, which sent Archer to the mat.

Fénix couldn't capitalize, so Archer crushed him with a release German. He followed it up with his spectacular rope-walk moonsault for two. Fénix tried to fight back with chops but was speared into the corner by Archer. Archer walked into a boot and took a gamenguiri before Fénix walked the ropes and landed a kick for two.

Archer avoided a moonsault but Fénix seamlessly transitioned into a cutter for two. Archer popped up and hit a fisherman's buster for two. He tried for a top-rope chokeslam, but Fénix countered it into a Spanish Fly for a close near fall. Fénix laid in strikes but ran right into a pounce. Archer chokeslammed Fénix for a close near fall as we ran up against television time.

As we neared the time-limit draw, Archer hit Blackout to win and advance to Revolution.

second dark show, with paul wight and tony schiavone on commentary; premieres march 15th and will keep airing on mondays on youtube afterwards. the idea seems to be to split dark between the bigger/quieter matches, with (eventually) the idea being that monday's show will be the non-touring dark matches (i.e. nightmare factory people and the like), while tuesday will have the actual post-show filmed dark matches and similar

big note: this is not the 'second show' that's going to be on TV, and we don't have any more details about that yet (other than it'll be Soon). this is just an additional show altogether
