Top 3 Takeaways from Dark 7th March 2023
This week’s review & takeaways for AEW Dark on YouTube, for March 7th, 2023
This week’s Dark came to you from San Francisco, California, with 8 matches, featuring AR Fox, Ryan Nemeth, Big Bill and more... Here are your Highlights
#1 Two Days Time?
Will the above picture be what we see in the final moments of Willow v Athena on ROH, Thursday night? (Yes I know, Athena is back on the top 3... but she is the only one who seems to have storylines on Dark!) Athena wasn’t actually on this week’s card, but after Nightingale picked up the win against Zoe Dubois, Athena made a beeline to the ring.
Unfortunately for her, Willow was not caught off guard and saw the champ coming, chasing her right back out of the ring. This left the AEW original and the championship all alone, so naturally she lifted it high!
#2 By Way of Parts Unknown
In yesterdays recap I detailed how Lance Archer had made his return to Elevation, and tonight he made his Tuesday night return. However he was not alone this time, he brought his long-time manager Jake “The Snake” Roberts with him! Jake was greeted with a standing ovation, as he normally does, but I wonder if this was due to his moving documentary that was released last week?
Roberts was the one introducing Archer this week, except this time around he was billed from “Parts Unknown”. Archer went on to defeat not one, but two opponents in a dominant handicap match.
#3 Chain Wrestling
We saw Brian Cage competing again on this week’s Dark, against NJPW Strong competitor, Bad Dude Tito. Both men got their licks in but it was the AEW star picking up the win. For the 2nd night in a row, The Machine put his opponent away with a submission move! It looks like a much nastier Texas Clover Leaf, he’s dubbed the “Chain Link”.
