Orange Cassidy vs. JD Drake on AEW Dark

The Wingmen's JD Drake came out flanked by two masked men on AEW Dark. He also had fresh in-ring gear, and it seemed like he was transitioning to a new creative direction.

Orange Cassidy got one of the best reactions on the show as fans welcomed him with massive cheers. Drake outmuscled Cassidy during the early lock-up. After sticking his hands into the pocket, Freshly Squeezed got an expected pop from the fans.

Cassidy's nonchalant kicks got even louder reactions as Drake's frustrations reached a boiling point, and he unleashed a monstrous chop. JD missed the senton but stopped Cassidy from going for a body slam.

Drake planted his opponent with an identical move but couldn't capitalize on the momentum as he got dumped outside. JD stopped the tope suicida and ricocheted Cassidy off the apron.

The mysterious masked men attacked Cassidy while the referee argued with JD in the ring. Drake faked a chop and landed a right-hand punch as the action stayed in the ringside area. The Wingmen member mocked Cassidy while his lackeys waited for the opportunity to strike.

Cassidy powered out of a chin lock and slammed Drake's head into the turnbuckle pad. He knocked Drake off his feet with a crossbody and again went for a body slam. Cassidy ditched the plan and took out the masked men with a tope suicida.

Drake was next as he got laid out with a perfect tornado DDT. He regained control and got a near fall following a cannonball senton in the corner.

Chuck Taylor and Wheeler Yuta ran out to level the playing field and took out Drake's goons. Back in the ring, Cassidy almost picked up a roll-up victory.

Drake reacted with the Bossman slam for another near fall. JD headed up for the moonsault, but Cassidy rolled out of the way. He finally pulled off the body slam as the entire arena erupted! Cassidy connected with the Orange Punch and got the three-count. Great match!

Eddie Kingston vs. Joey Janela (w/ Kayla Rossi)

For lovers of violence, this match delivered. @JANELABABY pressured @MadKing1981 consistently, but it was the heart & toughness of #EddieKingston that gave him the victory with a brutal Northern Lights Bomb finishDon't miss another second of #AEWDark!▶️ youtu.be/my704d_l-a8 https://t.co/TYhZz1wwyh

Eddie Kingston made his entrance with a taped shoulder. He was visibly in a lot of pain as he limped his way towards the squared circle. The first-time-ever match between Janela and Kingston got underway with an aggressive tie-up and exchange of wrist locks.

Kingston slapped Janela across the face in an attempt to 'punk him out,' as noted by Taz. Eddie called for Janela to fire off a few chops. Kingston looked unfazed as he showed Joey how to deliver effective chops.

Kingston then got an overhead throw before returning to the machine gun chops. Janela's chest was already quite red as he tried to get back into the match. The Bad Boy laid out Kingston outside but lost his balance on the top rope. It was all just a calculated misdirection as Kayla Rossi landed a moonsault splash on Eddie while the referee wasn't looking.

Joey attacked Kingston's injured left knee with a brutal dragonscrew. The latter couldn't get to a vertical base as Joey went to work on the knee. Kingston battled through the pain and threw himself out of the ring for a tope suicida. This man is inhumane!

The Mad King gathered pace as he landed heavy-handed chops, followed by a snap suplex and a german variation with the bridge.

Eddie was in tremendous pain but still found the extra gear to get in seven turnbuckle punches. Janela lifted him and delivered a vicious powerbomb.

Janela went to the top as Eddie struggled to get to his feet but still dug deep to stun his opponent with a slap. Both men were perched upon the top buckle, and Kingston got the last laugh with an avalanche suplex.

Kingston had a bruise under his left eye as the action once again moved to the outside. Rossi went to the top herself and waited for the perfect chance to catch Eddie off guard. However, she accidentally took out Janela, and the friendly fire proved costly for the heel.

Kingston returned Janela to the ring but ate two thrust kicks. Eddie was done playing around as he hit the lariat and a Northern Lights Bomb for a hard-fought victory.

Result: Eddie Kingston def. Joey Janela (w/ Kayla Rossi)

Grade: A


Thunder Rosa vs. Kasey Fox (Debut)

The unsportsman like conduct of @kaseyfox99 at the beginning of the match cost her dearly at the end, when @thunderrosa22 delivered a violent Peruvian Necktie submission to quickly finish the match at #AEWDark Watch #AEWDark right NOW!▶️ youtu.be/my704d_l-a8 https://t.co/wlYq6zT3FX

Kasey Fox rejected Thunder Rosa's handshake and went on the offensive. The debutant looked very green in the ring as she tried to keep up with her established opponent.

It didn't take time for Rosa to dictate the match as she got Fox down with a short-arm clothesline. Rosa hit two leaping dropkicks, followed by the Death Valley Driver.

The former NWA Champion forced Fox to tap out to the Peruvian Necktie and scored a quick submission win.

Daniel Garcia vs. Fuego Del Sol

The strategy to take out Interim TNT Champ @sammyguevara's friend @FuegoDelSol & jump the line straight into the TNT title match, will surely piss a lot of people off but @GarciaWrestling doesn't seem to care, as he wins here on #AEWDark!Tune in NOW!▶️ youtu.be/my704d_l-a8 https://t.co/q9hTfpKlTN

Fuego tried to pull off an upset as he got Garcia down with a hanging neckbreaker. The Luchador got a one-count with a low enziguri followed by a massive kick. Daniel evaded a springboard move and knocked out Del Sol with a shotgun dropkick.

Garcia delivered a brainbuster before locking in the Sharpshooter to destroy the fan-favorite.

Result: Daniel Garcia def. Fuego Del Sol

TBS Championship Eliminator Match: TBS Champion Jade Cargill vs. Skye Blue

A great effort and fight was put up by @Skyebyee at the TBS Championship Eliminator match on #AEWDark but the power of the TBS Champion @Jade_Cargill was just too much and the #JadeBrand keeps her impeccable record intact!Tune in to #AEWDark right NOW▶️ youtu.be/my704d_l-a8 https://t.co/qMGblvN29R

Jade Cargill made a pyro-assisted entrance and looked absolutely majestic as the first-ever TBS Champion.

Skye Blue started strong with a waistlock, but Cargill was too powerful during the early stages. Jade fired back with a pump kick, and she drew heat from the crowd.

Cargill caught Skye Blue in mid-air to deliver a fallaway slam, followed by a kip-up. She got a round of applause for the spot and continued to dismantle Skye Blue with her offense.

Blue, however, escaped Cargill's shoulders and attempted a move off the ropes. Jade transitioned to the Cazadora and landed her 'Jaded' finisher out of nowhere.

Result: Jade Cargill def. Skye Blue

Grade: B


Jade Cargill is young in the business, but if her latest match is anything to go by, she is improving rapidly as a performer, and that's great news for Tony Khan and co.


AEW World Tag Team Championship Eliminator Match: The Factory's QT Marshall & Nick Comoroto vs. Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus

A wild match here on #AEWDark! #TheFactory were so close to winning, with the strength of @Mr_Freakbeast, but an amazing save by @boy_myth_legend kept the belts with the #AEW Tag Team champions tonight! Main event up next on #AEWDark!▶️ youtu.be/my704d_l-a8 https://t.co/ScJgw1w3jv

The tag team champions got a rousing reception before the co-main event of the evening.

A loud 'Luchasaurus' chant echoed before the match as Jungle Boy and QT Marshall started with a fast-paced exchange. QT ate a few overhand chops and got taken down with an arm drag.

Comoroto came in, and Jungle Boy welcomed him with a dropkick. Marshall attacked Jungle Boy from the back, and the heels began to call the shots in the match.

Nick Comotoro got the tag, and he landed a brutal elbow drop. Marshall and Comoroto made quick tags and kept Jungle Boy in their corner.

The 24-year-old's goal was to create some separation, but QT Marshall was aware of the danger. Jungle Boy still countered with a hurricanrana and made the hot tag to AEW's resident dinosaur.

Luchasaurus delivered combination strikes on QT before backing Comoroto into a corner. He then kicked off a back elbow party and knocked down his opponents with a shoulder tackle.

Nick and QT broke the double chokeslam grip and escaped a disaster. Marshall continued to fight back with a step-up enziguri but missed the Diamond Cutter. All hell broke loose as the four competitors were down on the mat. The referee began the ten-count as Luchasaurus and Marshall — the two legal men — got up and made separate tags to their partners.

Jungle Boy almost got pinned following a savage spear from Comoroto. An unranked team nearly pulled off an upset win over the champs!

Luchasaurus sent QT to the outside, and he received a tag from a flying Jungle Boy. Luchasaurus first hit a Tiaras-leg DDT to set up Jungle Boy's version of a DDT using the ropes.

Comoroto kicked out at two but was incredibly dazed during the follow-up brawl with Luchasaurus.

Luchasaurus hit a fireman's carry slam on Comoroto. Jungle Boy leaped off his partner's back and took out QT Marshall with a Canadian Destroyer, and the sequence helped the Jurassic Express get the three-count.

Result: Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus def. QT Marshall & Nick Comoroto

AEW Dark Main Event: Hangman Page, Alan "5" Angels & 10 vs. Matt Hardy, Isiah Kassidy & Serpentico

And the buckshot lariat finishes the job as #AEW World Champion Hangman @theAdamPage takes out @KingSerpentico and takes the win, to cap off an amazing night of high-paced action on #AEWDark!▶️ youtu.be/my704d_l-a8 https://t.co/oAVVGFoHxJ

AEW World Champion Hangman Page headlined the card in a star-studded Trios match.

The stipulation was that if Matt Hardy's team won tonight, the veteran star would get a shot at the world title on the next Dynamite episode.

Hangman Page arguably got the loudest pop of the night and deservedly so as it was his first Dark appearance.

Isiah Kassidy and Alan Angels kicked off the main event with a well-executed sequence. The Dark Order enjoyed the early momentum as Preston Vance continued his team's good work.

Kassidy was shaken up as he caught his breath after tagging out to Serpentico. 10 sent Serpentico flying across the ring with a belly-to-belly suplex.

The Dark Order powerhouse kept Serpentico in the delayed vertical suplex hanging in the air. Hangman entered the match for the first time and amazingly continued the delayed vertical suplex by taking over from his partner.

The AEW Champion landed knife-edged chops and charged into the corner for a big clothesline. Matt Hardy grabbed Hangman's boot from the ringside area and smartly helped his team take control of the match.

Angels reentered and got a one-count from a snap suplex. Serpentico distracted him, and Hardy got involved with a toe kick. The heels slowed the pace down as Big Money Matt dropped an elbow across Angels' back.

Kassidy and Hardy executed the Poetry in Motion as Angels took a lot of punishment. Luther wasn't around, but Serpentico was still used as a weapon by his partners.

Alan Angels finally began his comeback with two kicks in the corner. He landed lefts and rights and wiped out Kassidy and Serpentico with a double crossbody. After getting into the ring, Preston Vance got the tag and ran through his opponents like a truck.

Vance delivered a perfect spinebuster on Kassidy and proceeded to lock in the Full Nelson submission. Hardy helped Isiah by breaking the hold, and Serpentico joined in to get the numbers advantage.

10 stopped another Poetry in Motion and side slammed Matt Hardy. Hangman Page got the hot tag, and he sent Serpentico flying with a blackbody drop.

Page hit a series of moves on the heels and isolated Serpentico for the Buckshot Lariat. Kassidy saved his partner but couldn't evade Angels' moonsault from the top.

Serpentico was returned to the ring as Hangman got a near fall with the Death Valley Driver. Once again, it was Matt Hardy who made the much-needed save. Page reversed the Twist of Fate and gave Hardy a taste of his own medicine.

Angels delivered a massive Frog Splash from the top, but Matt Hardy miraculously kicked out. Kassidy stopped Angels from going up top with a commonguri as Hardy recuperated in the meantime.

Matt executed the Splash Mountain move, but Preston Vance was around to break up the pinfall. Back-and-forth action resumed with Kassidy and Vance brawling it out in the ring.

Hangman, too, joined in and took Kassidy out of the equation with a rolling elbow strike. Ouch! Page avoided the Twist of Fate again as Serpentico made the blind tag.

Hardy joined Kassidy on the outside as Serpentico was the only member of his heel team in the ring. The Dark Order members easily evaded the splash and started the finishing sequence of the match.

Alan Angels hit the Wingsnapper before Vance softened up Serpentico with the Full Nelson. Hangman completed the match with the pop-up powerbomb, followed by the Buckshot Lariat.

Result: Hangman Page, Alan "5" Angels & 10 def. Matt Hardy, Isiah Kassidy & Serpentico
