All Elite Wrestling returned with episode three of their AEW DARK weekly digital series on Tuesday evening, as they presented their latest episode taped from The Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania during last week's AEW Dynamite show.
Featured on this week's show is a big eight-man tag-team main event pitting The Young Bucks, Cody and Dustin Rhodes against the foursome of CIMA, T-HAWK and Private Party, as well as Nyla Rose vs. Leva Bates and Joey Janela vs. Brandon Cutler.
The show opener airs and then Tony Schiavone introduces us from the studio as we shoot inside The Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, PA. and head to the ring for our first of three matches scheduled for this week's show.
The event also includes the promotional debut of former WWE and IMPACT Wrestling announcer Taz, who is welcomed during match number one, which kicks off this week's show.
Joey Janela vs. Brandon Cutler
After coming up short in the "Lights Out" main event against Kenny Omega on last week's episode of AEW DARK from the Agganis Arena in Boston, Massachusetts, Joey Janela returns this week against Brandon Cutler in one-on-one action to kick off this week's show from the Liacourus Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
As the guys make their ring entrances, The Exaclibur introduces to the commentary desk the former voice of WWE SmackDown and IMPACT Wrestling, the former ECW World Champion - "The Human Suplex Machine" Taz. Taz thanks him for the welcome and the announce team gets down to business for this week's show.
The match was given some time to develop, and after some back-and-forth exchanges we get to the finish of the match. Janela ends up getting Cutler up on the ropes and executes a superplex for the pin fall victory.
Winner: Joey Janela
Undesirable To Undeniable with Cody Rhodes & QT Marshall
Q-T Marshall (Michael Cuellari) is a guy Cody met at ROH who did a lot of work backstage and seemed super friendly. He helped with ALL IN and became part of the official AEW roster. Cody talks about watching a movie made on him about his attempt to get a job in WWE. Cody then talks about QT Marshall doing a little bit of everything, including wrestling at the upcoming event in Pittsburgh, PA.
Leva Bates (with Peter Avalon) vs. Nyla Rose
Leva Bates and Peter Avalon are out for the second match of this week's show, as the two cut their usual heel promo as they make their way down to the ring. Bates will be in action, with Avalon in her corner.
Out next is Bates' opponent -- former AEW World Women's Championship contender Nyla Rose.
This one doesn't run as long as the Janela-Cutler opener, but it actually turned out pretty well. There was a lot of gimmick stuff from Bates and Avalon throughout.
When all was said-and-done, it was Rose who picked up the "W" after picking up the 1-2-3 following a sit-out power bomb.
Winner: Nyla Rose
