Excalibur and Taz welcomed the fans to a 'massive' edition of AEW Dark. This week's Dark featured some big names and matches, and it all got underway with a tag team contest.

Luchasaurus got the tag on the other end, and the giants threw hands in the middle of the ring. Bronson was back in, and he got the patented kick combination from Luchasaurus.
Jungle Boy was tagged in, and they executed the Cazadora-Flatliner combo followed by the Assisted Senton. Bronson kicked out at one.
Bronson shifted the match in his favor by dropping Jungle Boy on his head with a T-bone suplex. Jungle Boy was in a world of trouble now as Boulder connected with various strikes in the corner. Boulder laid out Jungle Boy with a significant back body drop.
Jungle Boy tried to create some separation with a few clubbing blows before making the hot tag to Luchasaurus.
Luchasaurus delivered the German suplex on Bronson, followed by the kip-up. Boulder came in and ate a few chops. Luchasaurus dropped Boulder with a clothesline. He then delivered a chokeslam followed by a standing moonsault on Bronson for a 2-count. Boulder broke the pinfall as Jungle Boy was back in the ring.
Bronson nailed Jungle Boy's head right into Luchasaurus; a move called the Monster Driver. Boulder got the tag, and he delivered a middle-rope moonsault for a near fall. Boulder then lifted Bronson on his shoulders, but Luchasaurus incredibly came flying and delivered the Doomsday Device. Holy s***!
Luchasaurus took Boulder out of the equation with a hook kick and clothesline. Bronson was left alone in the ring, and Jurassic Express connected with a kick combination to end the AEW Dark match.
