John Siino reviews this week’s editions of AEW Dark, AEW Dark: Elevation, NXT UK, 205 Live, NJPW Strong, NWA Powerrr, Ring of Honor, and Main Event in under 15 minutes on Shot In The Dark.
This week we get AEW Dark from AEW Universal, where Santana Garrett’s introduction gets interrupted by Diamante, Adrian Jaoude (fka Arturo Ruas) makes his debut teaming up with former NXT partner Cezar Bononi and Darius Lockhart has his first match in AEW taking on Ricky Starks.
NXT UK continues it’s Heritage Cup Tournament as Teoman takes Wolfgang in a Semi-Final match, a fantastic #1 Contendership triple threat match between A-Kid, Nathan Frazer & Rampage Brown as well as Gallus, Subculture, Moustache Mountain and more setting up their next programs.
On NJPW Strong, the Fight Spirit Unleashed continues as after Jay White takes on Wheeler Yuta, he calls out one Tomohiro Ishii. Also, Yuji Nagata makes his return to Strong teaming with the debuting Yuya Uemura and Fred Rosser takes on Ren Narita which results in a disputed finish.
Also, “No More BS” Paul Wight makes his debut on AEW Dark: Elevation in a 3 on 1 handicap match, Tim Storm gets some unexpected assistance to take on Strictly Business on NWA Powerrr, Ember Moon takes on Cora Jade on 205 Live, a four corner survival match on ROH, Karrion Kross vs. Ricochet on Main Event, and more!
