I think Julia Hart has a promising future in AEW. Hopefully she continues to gain more ring experience because I think she definitely has the look and she can work, if she can get promo time and perfect it I think she'll be fine.


nathanr1889

Where's the love for Dani Jordyn? I can't be the only one


nathanr1889

I didn't think Black Rose was going to win but It looked like Skye Blue had to work for that win


nathanr1889

Taz is a Heel except when he's describing his friend Eddie Guerrero. You definitely can tell he misses his friend as we all do. Anywho, Santana/Ortiz Vs Lucha Brothers is the end game right?


Current_Poster

I think it's worth noting that Wardlow is able to overcome how unintimidating the word "Wardlow" is.


shaqrock

No pun intended.. wait yes it is.. FUEGO WITH THE FUEGO PROMO


Just_Introduction471

Am I the only one who thinks the crowd was dead at?


Lo_Key90

I think they filmed like 30+ matches back to back so that's probably why.


Just_Introduction471

They probably need to cut it down


Crasp27

I might be going mad but I don't remember seeing the Alan Angels match last night.


[deleted]

I cant forget seeing Tony Nese, That's not a compliment


Big_James993

Bad?


[deleted]

If we're lucky Sammie will put us all out of our misery, and they knock eachother out in the first 45* seconds not mins


appellant

The finisher by bear team its such cringe indie shit. Lets take 10 minutes to lift guy and drops him when he can just do a frog splash from the too rope. I would recommend the big guy just does a yokozuna or a vader splash. They need to book more of the big guys wrestling each other. Wonder if jobbers like dani jordan ever realize that carrying book gimmick will never get over or anything apart from a jobber perhaps change the gimmick as shes been doing that since she started at aew. Looking at griff garrison why do I get sting vibes from him is it the stinger splash.


[deleted]

>Looking at griff garrison why do I get sting vibes from him is it the stinger splash. Could be that he's also a 7 ft surfer bro that you just want to turn into the crow?


mr_wrestling

Kind of funny that he seems so tall but hes just 6'3"


[deleted]

It's the hair and the size 21 shoes


appellant

Not the crow but the surfer sting.


[deleted]

Of course! That's first, my bad!


crapusername47

I’m not sure about this Infinito guy. A solid debut but his match did dragon a little bit. Do I think he has the chance to be a world champion, the champion of this planet? Yes and no. To do that, you can’t be just a man, you need to turn into a monster. Overall, I’d rate it a solid B+.


crapusername47

‘Can’t chop people for shit’. Oh dear.


IsaacOkoro

Ethan Page and Fuego Del Sol was an awesome match. Page's interactions with the crowd and the boos that he got at the end were amazing. Honestly one of the best matches I've seen on Dark


ManMangoGuts

Infinito wrestles like a lucha Bryan Danielson But then again it can't be him, Bryan's too busy kicking heads in to do good lucha things.


ManMangoGuts

Taz giving shoutouts to fellow ECW originals, love it


CheetahWoods

AEW could have their Rey mysterio in Fuego…he’s always over, working under, a natural babyface, and easy to root for. This might be controversial but Fuego would benefit by putting on a little more size. His look would be much better and you could take him more seriously.


N2KGoat

I could see fuego being a multi year underdog baby faces story, if he keeps getting better the crowd will just get more and more into him, one day it may be years from now, he will finally win the title he gave everything (including his car) for That TNT title.


[deleted]

Found Fuegos account


[deleted]

They already got PAC


Fluffy_Godzilla

They already got Rey Fenix.


Fernandingo

That's a bit generous to Fuego. Mysterio is one of the greatest lightweight, high flying wrestlers of all time. Innovated that style in the American mainstream more than anyone else.


christopherDdouglas

Push Mike Reed.


GroundbreakingCash30

Yeah, he's not had much to do since Eastenders and his radio show finished.


McQueensbury

RUNARAAAAAAAND!


GroundbreakingCash30

You're such a Comedian.


trippysmurf

There was a match featuring a cheerleader wrestling a knight. The early 90s kid in me loves it.


Rafamills

"Mom, can we get Tyler Breeze?" "No, we have Tyler Breeze at home." Tyler Breeze at home: https://i.imgur.com/cxwJY0d.jpg


ManMangoGuts

Wardlow's shoulder tackles and uppercuts are crisp


ManMangoGuts

Bear Boulder is taller than freaking Wardlow?? Or was it just a posture thing


cosmic_scott

he is. wardlow is only 6'2".


_GCR13_

Only?


cosmic_scott

yeah... knew i should have put quotes on that word


_GCR13_

No offense, it just that he's a lot bigger than me, I didn't take how tall you were into consideration.


cosmic_scott

I also have some super tall friends (6'5" and taller)


MclovinBuddha

Taz and Excalibur give me life


Dreamtaheem

Sahara seven and abadon should have a match ![gif](giphy|C1bMam3Nq5ENCLvPSU)


flcinusa

I was hoping Excalibur would go full PWG commentary on Adam Cole Alas...


chiguy2387

Needs to have Chuck Taylor in the booth to get into “Fat Piece of Shit” territory


BigDaelito

I always like women matches in Dark. Since you don’t get that annoying picture and picture, most matches end up being long enough and pretty solid good watch.


KthulhuX

PPA raided the Bucks’ wardrobe and calls himself Anthony Greene.


NoahVanderhoff1

Were Cole and Greene friends in NXT or something? He gave that guy a ton.


t0m0m

AEW seem to be pretty high on Greene in general - he's had a few good showings since his first appearance.


kullnerd

He though it was trent


bayleysgal1996

And then Tony Khan made Adam sign autographs and take pictures with everyone.

BullBuchanansTie

That show flew by! Great episode of Dark.


el_sh33p

I'd rate that up there with Baron Black vs. Rey Fenix in terms of Dark Classics. Possibly even higher since it had a real build going in.


fluffywolfe

Budge and Greene killed it!


AlphaRemixHD

That was a fun match it could have been on Dynamite


Mack784

Great main event


idontknow1001

Hell of a finish.


BullBuchanansTie

That was a hell of a match.


Shadow_Log

Great performance by Greene


WaylonVoorhees

MAMA JUST KILLED A MAN


moderndukes

The Lost Buck seems to have Cole well-scouted! Who is this mans??


NinjaFlyingEagle

Anthony Greene is from the north east. He was Limitless champ, a promotion out of Maine, prior to going to NXT. Know who else has been a Limitless champ? MJF, Christian Casanova and Daniel Garcia.


WaylonVoorhees

Winner of this faces Ory Locan in the Tournament Tournament finals at Takeover 67.


Rob_Vegas

AEW seems hot on Anthony Greene, I can see why. Cole and Greene work amazing together.


el_sh33p

Crucifix Bomb into Single Leg Crab is a *damn* good combo. Greene genuinely looking credible here even as an underdog.


fluffywolfe

This is the best match of this Dark. Well-worked between these two!


times_zero

Podcast sunrise lol.


bayleysgal1996

Well now Adam has a name if he ever wants to start his own podcast.


ArnAndersonsGlock

"Welcome to another episode of Podcast Sunrise with your host BUDGE."


WaylonVoorhees

Podcast Sunrise. Everyone's got one.


fluffywolfe

Podcast Sunrise!


Shadow_Log

Podcast Sunrise


Rob_Vegas

Adam Cole in a smaller venue, when he can be heard interacting with the kids in the crowd, yeah I get it why he could bag a role model dentist. Dude has more charisma than a level 20 bard.


el_sh33p

Greene doing a pretty good job of being the hopeless underdog just tanking abuse in this match. Sells Cole's power level even when they're not actually trading shots.


Young_Cato_the_Elder

Yeah he's really getting the crowd on his side. I really want him to get it done.


GroundbreakingCash30

> I really want him to get it done. Seeing as Butch failed us.


AlmightyScoosh

I'm off to bed after this as it's 130am UK time. Thanks for making me laugh so much reddit with the Taz and Ex podcast, see you guys next week.


WaylonVoorhees

How many NXT/ROH guys did he beat with that?


ArnAndersonsGlock

Cody has to dress up as Fuego Dos and Bryan Danielson has to dress up as Infinito. Meanwhile PPA just puts on a pair of pants inspired by the 60's or 70's and doesn't shave his chest or face for a few days.


GroundbreakingCash30

> Cody has to dress up as Fuego Dos and Bryan Danielson has to dress up as Infinito Why would they dress up as two other wrestlers?


CFGX

If you're not working the crowd at least as much as Cole, you're doing studio wrestling wrong.


bayleysgal1996

Out of curiosity, did these two ever cross paths in NXT?


KthulhuX

Bryce is gonna have a serious anti-Team Taz bias next time he ref’s one of their matches.


fluffywolfe

That enthusiastic girl in front row could be the Elite Zone Izzy, lol!


bayleysgal1996

Hopefully with less terrible parents.


el_sh33p

"Nobody's gonna cheer for you, give up!" *Crowd starts cheering for Greene.* That was a good move. The studio really pays dividends sometimes.


WaylonVoorhees

Anthony Greene's tights were the runners up in the NXT 2.0 branding change.


Leonhart_13

lmao Taz is the best


fluffywolfe

Bryce Remsburg catching strays from commentary, lol!


moderndukes

I wish we could’ve heard what that girl yelled at Cole to get everybody to laugh


WaylonVoorhees

Bryce is ON THIN ICE!


Lunchbox-of-Bees

Mom can we get Drip God Seth Rollins? We have Drip God Seth Rollins at home Drip God Seth Rollins at home : Anthony Greene


WaylonVoorhees

See, they had a plan for that all along.


ArnAndersonsGlock

Adam: "That was *my* shirt. Tony only gave me one."


CFGX

Cole is such a weirdly wholesome dude out of the ring that doing the shirt spot probably breaks his heart.


moderndukes

Adam “Hammy Jones” Cole


WaylonVoorhees

Speaking of guys who would've owned vlogs. Candido was amazingly entertaining.


BullBuchanansTie

How many "Adam Cole Baybays" is that? Four?


fluffywolfe

Adam Cole is for the kids, always shouting out babies.


FromAshesToAutumn

Did anybody notice Excalibur in the front row unmasked?


Bio-Organic-Machine

I’m erasing you saying this from my mind. I never want to know what he looks like! I need that mystery in my life!


moderndukes

Um what where?


FromAshesToAutumn

He's directly center on the hardcam, same guy Anthony Greene tagged during his entrance


cubicuban

Maybe this week a going over my head but how can he commentate and be in the crowd? Unless it’s edited first and then they add commentary?


FromAshesToAutumn

The commentary is added in afterwards, yes. Most of the matches were filmed weeks ago.


UmpireAJS

That's exactly what happens. They tape and edit with the commentary track being added afterwards. It's how they can make up to date references regarding upcoming shows and angles. This particular Dark was filmed like a month ago with a bunch of other ones.


AlphaRemixHD

So weird seeing adam Cole on a AEW show as NXT is airing


jimmi_vandelay

Wasn't greene also an nxt guy?


fluffywolfe

205 mostly I think


el_sh33p

Adam Cole is the tweenerest tweener heel to ever tween and heel. I feel like the only way to get this man over as a true, only-gets-boos *heel* would be sequential attacks on Tony Schiavone, Fuego del Sol, Marko Stunt, and Evil Uno.


amorningofsleep

Which is why a program with OC is perfect. Want to get the crowd into a riot? Beat the shit out of Orange.


bayleysgal1996

And yell at Negative One. Though Negative is 1-0 against him, so I don't think he wants that smoke.


el_sh33p

The only people brave enough to cross -1 are Miro and Tay Conti. Adam Cole knows his goddamn place on the pecking order.


thegeek01

>The only people brave enough to cross -1 are Miro and Tay Conti. And even then Miro is praying to his god to have the strength to overcome the unbridled mass of pre-puberty power that is Negative 1.


WaylonVoorhees

You thought you were gonna get a shirt from a heel. Be better Orlando.


fluffywolfe

Booo that shirt tease lol!


Mack784

Cole making sure they dont throw his shirt back.


AsianKitchenGuy

The Boom hits different when there's only 50~ people in attendance lol


KthulhuX

Middle-Age Buck


bayleysgal1996

Checking Greene's Cagematch, it looks like Dangertown is actually somewhere in Massachusetts.


el_sh33p

It's named for the drivers.


jimmi_vandelay

That tracks


moderndukes

Y’all who went to Universal tapings, is it normally park guests or folks coming purely for the tapings? I’m just trying to gauge while watching the reactions from the audience, especially with how well the Fuego/Egon match played with the audience


Effective_Ad4810

Purely for the tapings. You have to get tickets a few days before online. They are free and "sell out" in like under an hour. Next taping is this Friday so going to those also.


Nightwing383

Yeah they sell out quick. Glad I managed to get tickets again this time. See you there


bc041203

You buy tickets or claim them so I’d assume fans


el_sh33p

Storebrand Peter Avalon vs. THE BUDGE.


fluffywolfe

Fuego always sells the Ego's Edge well. Just gets yeeted.


KthulhuX

I like that part of Ethan Page’s moveset is just YEET!


bayleysgal1996

Well, at least Fuego can say for sure that he lasted a lot longer in his second match with Ethan.


el_sh33p

You will never convince me Ethan wasn't smooching at his tag team partner through the camera. In a completely, almost horrifyingly heterosexual sort of way.


WaylonVoorhees

Ethan was all the way up North with that one.


Young_Cato_the_Elder

So I never watched it. Is this what the plot to Lucha Libre was?


bayleysgal1996

It's been a while since I saw it but I think so, give or take an orphanage.


codymonster155

Those 2 lil lady's in front are really into this. Thats awesome. Reminds me of the old school territory studio taped shows. Great opportunity for heat for heels too.


NightEmber79

Wrestling needs Hatpin Mary’s


moderndukes

“AEW is too adult” This match:


bayleysgal1996

"I hope you step on a lego, Ethan!" Now that's just mean.


moderndukes

Those kids in the front row are giving Fuego all his strength


NightEmber79

I can’t believe those children failed Fuego. Those little bastards didn’t cheer enough. This is on them.


WaylonVoorhees

Fuego could get a sponsorship with Faygo. Faygo Del Soda.


Young_Cato_the_Elder

lol the little girl calling Ethan an asshole.


el_sh33p

That was the coolest curbstomp variant ever.


AlphaRemixHD

Page loves the kids


WaylonVoorhees

Mobile can't afford to lose Fuego. They already lost the great Bobby Eaton and their tourism board can't take another hit that big so soon.


housecatdayo

Ethan Page is really hamming it up for the kids in the front row, a true professional


Lunchbox-of-Bees

Page is getting a real kick out of terrorizing those children


fluffywolfe

Fuego is a town mascot?


housecatdayo

Excalibur and Taz just openly laughing about the botches earlier in the show, they're in rare form tonight


WaylonVoorhees

Did Ex almost call him Egon?


NightEmber79

Fuego is just face Serpentico. There, I said it.


Rob_Vegas

Handicap match. Fuego vs. Luther and Serpentico Luther and Fuego are equally using Serpentico as a weapon on one another it ends up looking like the match is Serpentico vs. Fuego and Luther No one knows who to pin and the match ends in time limit draw


NightEmber79

I need one of TK’s burner accounts to read the above comment.


bayleysgal1996

Gonna need someone to use him as a weapon, just to check.


Thunder121794

I find it so weird when Excalibur gets made fun of for knowing the names of moves.


fluffywolfe

Smart shaming Jones


Rob_Vegas

YOU STINK


WaylonVoorhees

Imagine all the undercard folks in WCW/WWF and possibly ECW who would've loved vlogs to get them across instead of internet forums.


chiguy2387

The Filthy Animals were pretty much the Vlog Crew before the Vlog Crew


el_sh33p

The Cruiserweight division would've fucking ruled the vlog scene.


WaylonVoorhees

I'd have liked to know what Sick Boy enjoyed for lunch.


brenobah

In all seriousness late 90s Jericho would have been unreal.


el_sh33p

Man, I'd love to see Fuego land a TNT Title run someday.


unseenbox

yooo, what if he takes it from Sammy??


el_sh33p

![gif](giphy|KscoZccAOBgCk)


Rob_Vegas

People *fucking love* Fuego. Dude is a legit, real world, work work work make your dreams come true American hero.


name-classified

If I’m an AEW heel; I’m immediately getting into a long term program with Fuego. He is 100% white meat pure babyface that gets the crowd to legit boo anyone that goes against him. As another commenter mentioned; he got Luchasaurus boo’s! Who the fuck does that?!? I don’t like playing imaginary booker, but in this case: Fuego vs Black or vs Andrade or even vs Danielson. Long term story with multiple matches, promos, vignettes and the JR sit down. You wanna be a heel and get boos?! Fight Fuego.


Rob_Vegas

Miro pulled that off so good. He always was this cruel paladin of vengeance for his hot wife and God. Then his mini-feud with Fuego who also is married and has kids. This turbo-over, could be the model for Gerber baby foods, pure babyface Fuego vs this *monster* Miro. I knew Miro was going to murder him, yeah, but deep down there was this little kernel of "But.. maybe?" Miro vs Fuego II - I was actively rooting against my Redeemer. I wanted Fuego to win so bad. I completely agree; you want to establish a heel? Have them fuck up Fuego del Sol. Shower them in hatred.


el_sh33p

Fuego is so loved the dude is an alignment hazard for any face who fights him. Goddamn *Luchasaurus* got booed for fighting Fuego.


Rob_Vegas

That's a thing I love about AEW. The company doesn't shit on the crowd, they respect the boos and cheers. FFS, CM Punk got boos while fighting Kingston. CM PUNK! BOO'D! And the company wasn't like "oh what a wacky crowd not knowing what to cheer for" they ride with it. As Excalibur says, you gotta give the people what they want!


bayleysgal1996

Apropos of nothing, Fuego looks like he's built up some muscle, good for him!


WaylonVoorhees

Buddyship. When you don't want to commit to Friendship.


bayleysgal1996

Taz just hates friendship.


Phill1pJFry

Damn, talk about lopsided


WaylonVoorhees

He just Moose'd his ass.


el_sh33p

Ethan Page is *finally* going to do something wrong. But, y'know, I forgive him for it. Grudgingly.


WaylonVoorhees

I'd like to see more of the Prince. Perhaps with Queen Aminata by his side.


fluffywolfe

Mother and Son combo


NightEmber79

If I knew that much karate I’d be all ego, too.


Rob_Vegas

All Fuego Ethan Del Sol


claire_004

Ethan Page single match, I kinda miss it


jeanlucpikachu

It's tiiime, for the MAIN EVENT!
