John Siino reviews this week’s editions of AEW Dark, 205 Live, NXT UK, NJPW Strong, Ring of Honor, Main Event and Backstage in under 15 minutes on Shot In The Dark.
This week on AEW Dark, we see the return of The Waiting Room but Tony Schiavone wants nothing of the flirtation between Dr. Britt Baker and her guest Ricky Starks. Plus, Negative One is back on commentary to collect his 5 bucks from Excalibur.
On NJPW Strong, after months of teasing the match, we finally get one step closer as Jon Moxley finally confronts the IWGP U.S. Title Contender briefcase holder, KENTA.
205 Live concludes the first round of the Women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic as Shotzi Blackheart & Ember Moon face off against Marina Shafir and the debuting Zoey Stark.
On NXT UK, Trent Seven vows to trim down to 205 so he can challenge for the Cruiserweight Title, we have a four-way elimination match to determine the contenders for the Tag Titles, and Meiko Satomura sets her first target upon her arrival.
Plus: We see a betrayal on ROH, a rare match on Backstage for a Rumble Spot, Main Event and much more!
