Unsanctioned Match: Kenny Omega defeated Joey Janela @ 26:25 via pin [****]

– Follow all of my reviews at this link.

– We open with Omega talking with the Bucks about not having a match, and Omega says he’s facing Janela in an unsanctioned match to get his groove back.

– Avalon cuts a promo on the way to the ring, demanding respect and mocking the local sports teams. Dying a death this was.

Kip Sabian vs. Peter Avalon vs. Sonny Kiss: Leva Bates is at ringside. Kiss an Sabian dump Avalon to begin. They work into counters, and then dump Avalon again. Kiss follows with a RANA and arm drags. The back handspring slap follows and then a jawbreaker follows. Avalon cuts them of and dumps Sabian.

Avalon battles back, Kiss cuts him off and Bates hits Kiss an Avalon cradles him for 2. Sabian hits deathly hallows and pins Avalon. Kip Sabian defeated Peter Avalon & Sonny Kiss @ 6:15 via pin [**½] This was solid but a bit disjointed; the librarian gimmick still sucks, but I can live with them doing jobs on the Youtube show.

The dropkick follows, Daniels tags in and takes control. Angelico cuts him off sand Grayson tags in, but Daniels hits an arm drag. Grayson fights back, hits the dropkick and follows with chops.

They double team Daniels and Evans covers for 2. Grayson back in and Daniels battles back, fights off the heels but Dark Order cuts him off with double teams. Evans joins in as he continues to isolate Daniels. Evans hits a back handspring into an eye rake, but Daniels hits the blue thunder bomb tag to Kaz, he run wild and takes out Dark Order. He follows with a RANA to the floor. It breaks down, SCU takes control as CIMA & Sky follow with planchas. Back in and Grayson cuts off Sky and hits night fall. Kaz flies in with a cutter, Uno cuts him off as we get the big move buffet. Sky hits a neck breaker on Angelico and double stomps Evans. Angelico makes the save, they low blow Sky and the backslide follows for the pin. The Dark Order, Angelico, & Jack Evans defeated CIMA & SCU @ 10:00 via pin [***] Good match, SCU are so great and work well with anyone, while they continue to rehab Evans & Angelico with some wins on this show.

Cody interviews referee Aubrey Edwards about her path to AEW. She got a look from WWE, but it didn’t work out and they never told her why. She kept working hard and tried to make herself better. She felt great pride reffing the All Out main event, and finally felt she arrived and was just happy. She’s paying her bills and having fun.

The final score: review Good
The 411
This week’s edition of AEW Dark was a good show and an improvement over lat week’s debut. I liked the change to three matches and delivering a big main event as well a more focus on highlights from the main program.
