Top 3 Takeaways from Dark: Elevation & Dark w/c 10th April

Coming to you from Long Island, New York & Universal Studios this week, with a combined 8 matches. Featuring The Firm, Willow Nightingale, Diamonte, and more... Here are your Highlights:

#1 Where’s the Rest?

So you should have already noticed that this week’s “Top 3 Takeaways” for Dark is a bit different. From now on we will combine both Dark: Elevation & Dark into one combined Takeaway. Why? Well mostly because I will now be taking over the “Top 3” for Rampage, staring this Saturday. But this also seems to have come at the right time too, the total run time for both Darks this week reached a whopping 50 minutes!

With both shows cut seemingly in half, it will prove even more difficult picking out 3 moments of each. But this also has me thinking; is this a one off by AEW? Is this the new run-time going forward? Is this making room for more AEW TV in the future?!

#2 Feed Him More

Nope, Ryback still hasn’t made his AEW debut, but Lance Archer is hungry for more. In a backstage segment, Archer & his manager, Jake Roberts cut a promo. Jake “The Snake” gave a cryptic speech about the human senses before handing over to Archer who claimed “If you could smell, you’ll be able to smell the fear and the dead bodies I keep leaving in your wake” before claiming he’s “sick and tired” of them feeding him the same “crap”.

But for Archer, it looks as though he’s got to go hungry for a while, as he didn’t even have a match on this week’s Darks, and with his promo being aired on Dark, I don’t think he’s going to be eating “premium” any time soon.

#3 Creative have nothing for you?

Speaking of going hungry, I think we can add Brian Pillman to that very list. Despite Pillman actually having a match this week, he was in the loser’s column. Suffering a loss to (un-signed talent) Matt Taven. Its unsurprising giving the momentum Taven & The Kingdom are gaining on ROH, but I can’t help but feel bad for Flyin’ Brian.

Earlier in the year he lost his tag team partner Griff Garrison to injury, then they lost the name “Varsity” and now his new tag team partner, Brock Anderson, is nowhere to be seen?
