My first time catching Shot in the Dark! Very useful and very concise. Nicely done John Siino.

Quick correction, you said Tyler Rust in NJPW became Rust Taylor in NXT, when it’s actually the other way around.

I’ve been meaning to catch Bear Country’s matches on AEW Dark, so it’s interesting that they were given a win so soon.

@BSR Thanks man! And oops for the Rust thing, names so interchangeable haha.
