Another hour and a half episode of AEW Dark begins. Excalibur asks if Taz is gonna be in a mood this week like he was last week, he seems to promise otherwise. To start with, we’ve got something kinda interesting to start with – the first appearance of a tag team that has their own name, and a clear attempt at a custom theme just for them. They are Sin and Money, Capital Vices and they pair up with Jon Cruz in a trios match against the whole team of Jurassic Express. The Express get a nice pyro show on their way out, that’s cool.
Capital Vices & Jon Cruz vs. Jurassic Express (Jungleboy, Marko Stunt & Luchasaurus)
Jungle and Money start out, lock-up, Money takes him to the corner to grind him. No clean break, forearm to the face. He whips him but Jungle reverses, snapmare, backslide for a 2 count! Ducks a shot, O’Connor Roll but Money spins out of it only for Jungle to roll him sideways for a cover of 2, Money scrambles over to the heel corner and Cruz tags in. So Marko tags in as well. Marko gets sidestepped, hurricanrana for a 2 count, Cruz dodges a kick, rolls him through but a series of kicks leads to a senton for a 1 count – solid dropkick lands flush and Cruz staggers away, Money tags back in.
Marko with a flying headscissor, tag to Luchasaurus! He sends Jungleboy at him for a Flying Flatliner, Assisted Senton with Marko and finally Jungleboy Wheelbarrows Luchasaurus onto Money for a nearfall!

I appreciate the variety you get from just letting people use whatever gimmicks they have on the indy scene and it gives them a good bump too which is part of the point of these last few months of Dark.
