Re: AEW DARK begins this TUESDAY

I skipped the women’t tag - so, happy with that call

If anybody doesn’t see the benefit of Marko with Jungle express anymore, as the chap who eats the pin, the I don’t even...

All in all, enjoyed the Darby match and the jungle express one - 8 man was too much of a cluster, except for the great OC bit and women’s i skipped

Fine for the free show

Re: AEW DARK begins this TUESDAY

I thought this was a well put together show!

Kinda cool that the Wins/Losses will count!
(i do think someone at AEW actually needs to properly explain the thinking behind it all, i would also like to see actual stats etc on the website, much like UFC etc

Re: AEW DARK begins this TUESDAY

First show was very good. First two matches were very good TV matches, The last match was good and The women's tag match was bad.

Allin vs Cima was my MOTN. Allin is a superstar in the making. I think it helped that match was on before the Dynamite show started and the crowd were hot.

The Hybrids 2/Lucha Bros vs Private Party/Best Friends w/ Orange Cassidy. They did well to get some life from the dead crowd. Really very good TV 8 man tag, Private Party really have a ton of potential.

SCU vs Jurassic Party. Was really fun and Luchasaurus and Jungle Boy are stars in the making. Marko Stunt should be kept to three men tags and should be taking the pins in these matches. SCU are really good trio.

The Worse match of the night has to go to Britt/Allie Vs Bea/Ford. It just shows to me the lack of depth and quality if you take away the Joshi talent from the women's division in AEW.

Take away from AEW DARK. I think maybe not use Jim Ross, Excalibur and Tony Schiavone for commentary on this show, get in Goldenboy and someone else use it as a training ground for future positions on the PPV's and Dynamite once Ross and Schiavone call it a day. Make the show feel a little different.

I think if they are planning to have four dark matches after every taping of Dynamite, maybe have two of the better matches on before Dynamite starts while the crowd is hot and keep two for after the show. I probably use DARK as well to build up feuds on the show for pre show PPV's maybe. Give some of the younger talent maybe some experience in TV feuds.

Overall a very good first episode, let down by the women's match.

That was a decent show, except the women's match.
I think i won't watch anything from aew women's division, most of them have no personality and are shit in the ring.
The tag division is great and that show showcased it.

AEW Dark had over 25k live viewers on YouTube

Is this number decent when compared to other free wrestling live online streams? I know that the NWA show had over 9k and Impact on Twitch have done similar to NWA numbers in the past.

Re: AEW DARK begins this TUESDAY

The only knock I have is the announcing in the mind fuck way. Like it's weird to confirm that the matches took place last Wednesday before the show, but then have commentary be as if it took place today. But still fun matches

I watched NWA Power and thought I might as well give AEW Dark a try. Yikes. Shiavone is fine and all, but the matches were not a good idea following some fundamentally sound wrestling.

Everything takes so...long. The entrances are shit. I’m sorry, but for an arena that crowd was pretty quiet. The in-ring is so choreographed with no bass. I had to switch it off.

Kind of have morbid curiosity about the women’s tag though, haha.
