No peter Avalon and Brandon Cutler had a double count out in their feud on DARK lol.Was that the first countout in AEW history?
So Ryo or Yuka are likely to get a full time deal with AEW? Ryo would probably suit as another monster type, but Yuka could be a tag partner for Shida.
XDI thought the 1st 2 matches were really good.
I really like Nia's leg based offense on Tay to combat her kicks. And Tay played a good David to Nyla's Goliath. Every time I see Tay in AEW, all I think is "man, NXT fucked up there." She could be doing really good things for them right now. But, AEW's gain.
Sakura's character now is so much better than what it was before the pandemic in AEW. The Freddie Mercury cosplay was just annoying to me. Now she seems very regal and self centered and she does that well. And in the ring, she works like a veteran. And Yuka is the perfect underdog babyface. These 2 worked really well together and I'd love to see more.
Ryo vs. Aja felt like it would never end. And I get it, Aja is older now. And I get the match that they were having. And I liked some of the big moves. But God this went like 15 minutes and it would have been better at 5. And the finish? Like, is Ryo's gimmick is that she has a hard head? Because she got hit with the trash can outside the ring, no DQ by the way. But then she still beats Aja back to the ring to knock her down. I don't know man, this was just weird.
Britt vs. Rosa's student felt like it should have just been a 2 minute squash. Instead they extended it. Britt looked good, her opponent not so much. At least it added fuel the fire of Britt vs. Rosa.
I'm very curious to see how Nyla vs. Britt plays out.
