‘All Elite Wrestling: Dark’ Review (Feb 18th 2020)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s AEW: Dark review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have Margot Robbie in Birds Of Prey: Or The F—Differous Evacuation Of Feminism As A Reason To Make A Movie. We’ve got some cool matches, thanks to “Total Gym”! Do the f—— squats!

Match #1: Kris Statlander defeated Diamante

My Opinion: 3 out of 5 – This was far too short for this match to be what it should have been, but the potential was enough to give this a three. What’s that? That sentence doesn’t make any sense? How’s that different from any-thing else I write? These two had good chemistry, which is where the “potential” line came from. Get it? Okay, that’s bull-s—. I still don’t have the new keyboard with a delete button. Hey, the match was good for what it was.

Match #2: Best Friends defeated The Hybrid 2

My Opinion: 3.2 out of 5 – This was a fun little romp, like Fabian when he’s with those Beach Blanket Bimbos. The action was fast and furious, like Vin Diesel when his career dried-up and he had to go back to making those f—— “Fast And The Furious” movies. You could probably guess what happens here every step of the way, but that’s not necessarily and bad thing…I think. All in all, this was good fun.

Match #3: Big Swole defeated Christi Jaynes

My Opinion: 2.8 out of 5 – This was okay, with BS…heh, BS. Swole was good. Is swole one of those millennial buzz words that’ll never stick? Christi Jaynes…now that’s a porn name. Fortunately, this was a match that, while short, showed some of what these two are capable of.

Match #4: (Main Event) Young Bucks defeated QT Marshall and Peter Avalon

My Opinion: 2.9 out of 5 – This was no masterpiece, but the wrestlers looked good out there in the ring, even if the match didn’t quite live-up to what they were capable of. Avalon sure has changed over the years, perhaps even reminding me, at least, of PAC, to some degree. QT is still no prize fighter, but he has matured into a decent hand that can keep a firm grip much of the time. The Bucks were and are still one of the best acts today and they keep that image alive with their performance here. The Age Of Innocence is pretty damn good and this match was a bit less than that, or as Winona Ryder would put it, “Good, most good”.

Final Verdict: 2.7/5

As a full show, this was decent and simple, with some matches beginning and ending and nothing more.
