‘All Elite Wrestling: Dark’ Review (March 17th 2020)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s AEW Dark review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and only unfunny women think all women are funny. Have you ever seen Hilary Clinton tell a joke? Yeah, there’s your proof that not all women are funny. Also, Paul Sorvino isn’t funny. Let’s jump into…I’m not funny either, but I’ve killed two people with piano wire and you’re next…to enjoy this review of AEW Dark.


Match #1: Colt Cabana defeated Peter Avalon

My Opinion: 3 out of 5 – This was a nice goof-ball bout that was not too heavy on the dip-s— s—, but needed a little more of an edge to feel important. Like a Hoobastank concert, this was several minutes of “don’t play with yourself next to Bradshaw”, because he likes a man’s ass. Okay, come for the mat grappling and stay for the Aretha Franklin-brand Crispex.

Match #2: Jack Evans & Angelico defeated Brandon Cutler & Michael Nakazawa

My Opinion: 3.1 out of 5 – This was a nice sprint between two teams who worked well together to deliver a simple match with a lot of flair. It’s nice to see some-body other than Cody Rhodes on an AEW card. Nakazawa is a unique performer who…I don’t care. Wait, I do care, but I’m gonna pretend I don’t. Evans and Angelico are just too damn good. Okay, I gotta poop. I’ll be back, when the day is new, with plenty more ideas, for you.

Match #3: Penelope Ford defeated RIHO

My Opinion: 3.1 out of 5 – This was a fun little match that was easy to watch and Will Arnett is a s—– Batman.

Match #4: (Main Event) Christopher Daniels defeated Stu Grayson

My Opinion: 3.4 out of 5 – This was a fun main event that went about ten minutes or so. This was a very natural pairing to make, with Daniels and Stu just too damn similar to not be an interesting match-up. I’d call this a lively, intense fray between two very talented athletes, but neither watch Harvey Weinstein blow his milk hose into a house plant, so there you go/I have problems…in the head.

Final Verdict: 3.1/5

This was a simple show that was not much in the grand scheme of things, but it was solid from beginning to end.
