AEW premiered All Elite Wrestling: Dark Tuesday Night on YouTube. AEW Dark will feature all the dark matches taped before and after Dynamite last Wednesday.
Darby Allin, who will face Jimmy Havoc this Wednesday night on Dynamite, battles Cima. There’s also a match between SCU and Jurassic Express that has been said to be very, very good.
Here’s the full card for AEW Dark Episode 1:
- Darby Allin vs CIMA
- The Hybrid 2 & Lucha Bros vs Private Party & Best Friends
- Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. & Allie vs Bea Priestley & Penelope Ford
- SCU vs Jurassic Express
AEW doesn’t have it’s own network at this time. However, it certainly knows how to take advantage of YouTube.
One could argue AEW wouldn’t exist today without the popular video sharing website. The Young Bucks turned themselves into massive superstars by vlogging about themselves and their wrestling travels.
Their show Being The Elite featured many of ROH’s most successful storylines and draw in more views than some cable television shows get.
This is just another way in showing how AEW gets it. You’ve got matches going on before Dynamite goes live and you have cameras set up to show the live show.
Why wouldn’t you record those matches and put them out there for your fans to watch. It’s costing you very little if anything to do and the return on investment has to far outweigh any cost.
As of the time of this article being written, it already had over 40,000 views on YouTube.
