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

This week on IMPACT Wrestling, we have a triple threat match between Matt Cardona, Eddie Edwards and W. Morrissey to see who will challenge Moose at Turning Point for the World Championship. We also find out who will face the Good Brothers next, Mercedes Martinez doesn’t want to accept Mickie James help and Minoru Suzuki checks another one off of his dream match list by facing off against Kaleb with a K.

NWA Powerrr has a bunch of announcements such as a new weekly show debuting soon as well as matches made for NWA Hard Times 2 including Trevor Murdoch vs. Mike Knox. We also get Melina vs. Skye Blue, Kiera Hogan vs. Kenzie Page and the finals of the #1 Contendership tag team tournament as The End faces off against Hawx Arie.

On NXT UK, we get a 4-way #1 Contendership Match for the next challengers for the NXT UK Tag Team Championship between Moustache Mountain, Oliver Carter & Ashton Smith, Jack Starz & Dave Mastiff and Symbiosis. We also get a wonderful opener between Mark Andrews and Nathan Frazier and Pretty Deadly takes a trip to Magic Mike Live, to learn a couple of tricks or two.
