John Siino reviews this week’s editions of AEW Dark, AEW Dark: Elevation, NXT UK, NWA Powerrr, 205 Live, NJPW Strong, Ring of Honor, and Main Event in under 15 minutes on Shot In The Dark.

This week on AEW Dark, we have the final show from Daily’s Place which includes Fuego Del Sol with his last shot on getting a victory, the return of The Waiting Room with guests Sonny Kiss and Joey Janela continuing their saga and quite possibly the last time we could see a lot of these regular faces we’ve been accustomed to.

NWA Powerrr crowns a new National Champion as JTG faces Chris Adonis in the tournament final, The Pope defends his Television Championship against Sal Rinauro, and Homicide makes his return to NWA.

And on NXT UK, we find out who will be Meiko Satomura’s first challenger for her Women’s Championship, we get the reveal of Blair Davenport and Tyler Bate defends his Heritage Cup against Jack Starz.

Also, we get six solid matches on AEW Dark: Elevation, a special ‘Fireworks Frenzy’ episode of NJPW Strong, The Briscoe Brothers ‘fight on the farm’ on ROH, Andre Chase and Joe Gacy make their debut competing in NXT Breakout Tournament qualifying matches on 205 Live, Veer makes his singles debut on Main Event and more!
