AEW aired a special edition of Dark tonight (August 6th) on their YouTube channel at 10PM EST to prepare their devoted fanbase for the debut of AEW Rampage next week. The matches were taped without a crowd after AEW Dynamite: Homecoming which aired live from Dailys Place in Jacksonville, Florida last Wednesday August 4th. Here's what happened.
Highlights of this match were Taz singing Tarzan Boy on both the entrance and after the victory. Jurassic Express hit the Thoracic Express double team finisher on D3 for the victory.
Statlander hit the Big Bang Theory for the straight forward victory. She's heading for a title shot it looks like with all the victories she's been picking up.
Nice little tag team match before Lucha Bros hit the fear factor on Sage Scott for Penta to pick up the pin.
Swole basically called Diamante out for cheating during their match on Dynamite the other week before they got held apart by Mark Henry. We're heading for a rematch.
Nothing seems settled in the heated rivalry between @SwoleWorld and @DiamanteLAX after this sit-down with @TheMarkHenry.— All Elite Wrestling (@AEW) August 7, 2021

Good win for Julia, always nice to see young talent getting experience and Angelica Risk looked quite good as well. Julia gets the win with the split leg bulldog.
Page hits the always impressive looking Ego's Edge on Baron for the win.
QT joins Taz & Excalibur on commentary and originally refuses to address his lack of apology to Tony Schiavone on Dynamite this week. Later in the match he claims that Schiavone disrespected him again on Dark Elevation commentary. Pretty sure this ends in QT getting beat by Paul Wight. We'll see. Solo has lost the W from his surname and now we know where it went as Billy Gunn pinned him and held the tights for the victory.
.@RealBillyGunn gets the win for #GunnClub with a handful of tights and @realmmarshall1 is livid!

The rebuild for The Elite Hunter begins after his loss to Luke Gallows on Dynamite the other week. Kaz wasn't really troubled by Avalon as he put him away with the Crossface Chicken Wing.
Really quick trios match ended with Martin hitting a flipping stunner and the Sydals hitting a double lightning spiral on Bengston for the victory.
Lance attacks Tre Lamar before the bell and then gives poor Jake the Snake Roberts hardly any time on commentary. Blackout for the pin.
Abadon hit the Burial Plot, a new move which is like a DDT but her leg drives the opponents neck down, after a fun little match for the win.
Really impressive showing here for Jora Johl before getting distracted by Private Party and getting hit with the Orange Punch.
