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.
