AEW After Dark for 6/23/20

Brian Cage vs Robert Anthony

After some good showings on Dark Robert Anthony’s back to face Brian Cage to get us underway. Anthony would subvert Cage from the first attempt but Cage would make his power felt the first step back Anthony took. A Drillclaw from Cage would be enough to end the match in just under a minute. This is a huge contrast to Anthony’s efforts against Scorpio and Moxley. Cage wins here in very dominating fashion.

Winner: Brian Cage

Musa/David Ali vs SCU

This is Ali’s second appearance on Dark after debuting last week against Lance Archer. This week Ali and Muss take on the team of Daniels and Kazarian representing SCU. Daniels and Mussa get things underway but both have the answer to each other. They are leading to Ali getting involved to take Daniels off his game. Mussa would attempt to take a shot at Kazarian, but Kazarian was too smart for that. SCU would hit the Best Meltzer Ever for the win. It’s revealed that Daniels and Kazarian will focus on tag action while Sky is focusing on singles competition.

Pineapple Pete vs Shawn Spears

Spears will be looking to have another dominating performance like we seen on last week’s Dark. Shawn still has the black glove and with his new attitude, he looks to be poised for even more success in the ring.The match starts in a technical style, lots of hold transitions leading to Pete attempting various roll-ups. Spears goes outside the ring to seek the advice of Tully. Whatever Tully said its provoked a reaction from Shawn who went back in more aggressively. As the match wore on, Tully slipped a small object in the ring for Shawn to place in the glove. Spears wins with a shot with a loaded glove.

Winner Shawn Spears

Griff Garrison vs Lance Archer

Griff avoids a big boot from the word go and hits some hits on Archer before Lance hits a crushing shoulder block. Archer beats on Griff just toying with him before shouting no one has any idea what’s coming for them. Archer hits the Blackout before using the claw again to win by pinfall. Lance continues his dominant streak with another win before choke slamming the poor bloke who he dragged out in his entrance.

Luther/Serpentico/Max Caster vs. Jurassic Express

Marlo and Max Caster get underway with Caster pushing Marko down before Marko retaliates with shots. The speed of Marko really gives him the advantage before he tags in Jungle Boy. Caster makes a tag to Serpentico after Jungle Boy gets his spots in. Serpentico tries to outspeed Jungle boy but Jungle Boy is too athletic for it to work. Luther gets tagged in and Jungle Boy tags Luchasaurus in leading Luthor to tag Serpentico back in. The match progresses and Marko finds himself targeted by Luther. Luther gets some near falls leading to him squealing at the referee at the same frequency as the average online game squeaker. Jurassic Express hit a triple chokeslam on Caster before Jungle Boy locks in an STF to win by submission.
