Cody has gone to Twitter to announce that a new weekly show, “AEW DARK” hosted by Tony Schiavone, will begin airing this Tuesday on All Elite Wrestling‘s YouTube channel.
BREAKING: “AEW DARK” begins this Tuesday!
— Cody Rhodes (@CodyRhodes) October 5, 2019
AEW DARK will feature the dark matches that occurred before and after AEW Dynamite on TNT. This is an opportunity to give some of their stars time who were not able to be included on TV but are going to be key cogs in the AEW machine moving forward.
AEW Dark will feature the following four matches:
CIMA vs Darby Allin
Lucha Bros & Jack Evans and Angelico vs Private Party & Best Friends
Britt Baker & Allie vs Penelope Ford & Bea Priestley
SCU vs Jurassic Express (Luchasaurus, Jungle Boy, Marko Stunt)
A plethora of good, quality matches which include many stars that fans were hoping to see on the TNT debut but were unfortunately left out. AEW DARK will allow the people in the building to enjoy some special matches before anyone else, while also not going to waste so that the world can see them just under a week later.
With AEW being clear that they do not plan to conduct house shows or non-televised specials any time soon, AEW DARK can play that roll for specific performers on the roster who may not make TV in that specific week. All Elite Wrestling continues to stay fresh and unique in any way possible, taking another step here by giving fans a treat on another day of the week.
