Welcome to this week’s All Elite Wrestling: Dark review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have a half hour, so this is a short review. Ain’t that f—— exciting? I’ve got two words for ya…Robert Loggia. R is for Robert Loggia. O is for “Oh my God, It’s Robert Loggia”. B is for “B—-, it’s Robert Loggia”. E is for “Everybody wants to f— Robert Loggia”. R is for Robert Loggia. T is for “Touch my crotch, Robert Loggia”. Space. L is for “Lesbians love Robert Loggia. O is for “Oh my God, It’s Robert Loggia”. G is for “Good God, it’s Robert Loggia”. G is for “Good God, it’s Robert Loggia”. I is for “Ingmar Bergman f—– Robert Loggia”. A is for “Anal is the favorite of Robert Loggia”. Okay, let’s get to AEW: Dark.

Match #1: Big Swole defeated Diamante

My Opinion: 3.3 out of 5 – This was a fine match that had plenty of hard-hitting action and plenty of actual wrestling holds, which made me feel like Jerry Lawler watching Shawn Michaels and Chris Jericho at Wrestlemania 19. There really wasn’t a dull moment here, despite certain lulls in the action. I can’t think of any point in this match where it all went wrong. This was a success that, with a longer time limit, could have been even better.

Match #2: (Main Event) #StrongHearts (CIMA, El Lindaman and T-Hawk) defeated Jurassic Express (Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus and Marko Stunt)

My Opinion: 3.3 out of 5 – This was a blast. The wrestling here was like a well-oiled machine that never needed the grease in the first place. While this was no match of the year, this was as good of a demo reel for any of these fighters as they could hope for.

Final Verdict: 3.4/5

This was a simple half hour with enough wrestling to justify watching it, but also had a nice atmosphere that was very inviting.
