It was recently announced by All Elite Wrestling Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes that a show called “AEW Dark” will begin to air starting tomorrow, October 8th on AEW’s YouTube channel.
AEW Dark is a show that will air matches that weren’t shown on the previous Wednesday night’s episode of AEW Dynamite and will be hosted by Tony Schiavone. For the inaugural episode of AEW Dark, the four dark matches that took place on last Wednesday night’s episode of AEW Dynamite will likely be the matches that will be shown.
Those matches are Darby Allin facing CIMA in a one-on-one match, The Lucha Brothers (Pentagon Jr. and Rey Fenix) teaming up with Jack Evans and Angelico to take on Private Party (Isiah Kassidy and Marq Quen) and Best Friends (Chuckie T and Beretta) in a Tag Team Match, Dr. Britt Baker and Allie going up against Penelope Ford and Bea Priestley in a Women’s Division Tag Tag Match and SCU (Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian, and Scorpio Sky) locking horns with Luchasaurus, Marko Stunt and Jungle Boy in a Six-Man Tag Team Match.
Unlike any other pro wrestling company in the world, All Elite Wrestling has shown the significance and has made it perfectly clear that the win-loss record of their talents does matter and does have a bearing when it comes to the talent’s future and placement in the company.
Recently, a fan on Twitter asked Matt Jackson if the win-loss record of these dark matches also count, to which Matt Jackson said:
“Yes. Everything counts.”
