It's time for another edition of Dark and we're starting with 2.0 in action. The Texas Tornado Tag match is teased during this one and I am still in awe of the fact that THE ALMIGHTY STING is working a match on TNT in 2021. This year is so fucking weird. I'd love to see Eddie Kingston join Excalibur and Taz on commentary one day, by the way. That'd be an awesome combo. In the match, Andrews got a little spark hot tag moment but this was for sure a 2.0 match where the duo went through a bit of their playbook ahead of that beforementioned match. Extended Squash.
Tay time. Her energy is infectious, but my illness is even more so. Scott selling that knee strike was well done. Conti mostly rolled through and I'm pretty sure we're going to see her against Baker before the end of the year. Decent squash.
Brock Anderson and Lee Johnson took on Keys and Slade in match number 3. Decent competition that featured some real potential for sure. Anderson is a cool shade of his dad. Keys and Slade were decent, too.
Wheeler Yuta and Matt Hardy in the four-spot, building off of that HFO/Best Friends drama. Good fundamental based work for sure. Want another example for how weird 2021 is? A former CHIKARA Hawk and Matt Fucking Hardy just wrestled each other and Bryce was the ref on a video that had over ten thousand people watching live. Life is weird as hell, people. I appreciated how much Yuta got in here and love the respect the company has been showing him and how they've allowed him to actually work. WWE's loss. I was right when I figured it'd be a bit dirty and that Matt would win.
Private Party attacked Taylor and Yuta after. Orange made the save and Matt was carried off by his unit-mates.
Yeah, good overall but the predicable shit finish did hurt the quality a tad.
Orange should have came out with Kris with some food.
Former Impact roster member, Kiera Hogan and Stratlander. We had cartwheel boops, running dropkicks in the corner, and a badass held suplex from everyone's favorite alien. Kris won ahead of her match with the champ. In all, it was solid. I am pretty sure they're adding Hogan soon and I have no doubt that she'll get a good little push when it happens.
Overall Rating: 70/100%
