Shawn Spears & Wardlow vs. Bear Country on AEW Dark

Bear Bronson and Shawn Spears got the match underway with the usual collar and elbow tie-up. Spears cartwheeled out of the corner, and Bronson wasn’t too pleased with the Chairman’s early shenanigans.

Spears mocked Bronson and paid for it by getting lit up with a clothesline. Bronson got one over Spears by executing a cartwheel and mimicking the ’10’ gesture. Spears responded by showing him the middle finger as Bear Boulder received the tag.

Wardlow came in and fans popped when he went toe-to-toe with Boulder. They engaged in a Greco-roman knuckle lock. Wardlow went for the double-leg takedown, but Boulder sprang back up and sent the Pinnacle member to the ringside area.

Bronson took both the opponents out with a tope suicida and slammed the steel steps to get a big reaction from the crowd. The match resumed in the ring as Bronson bit Spears in the forehead.

Wardlow came in and backed Bronson in the corner with a combination of uppercuts and shoulder blocks. A spinebuster came next as Wardlow’s power was on full display.

Bronson blocked Wardlow’s powerbomb and reversed it into a back body drop. He sat down on Wardlow’s chest and began crawling over to his corner for the hot tag to Boulder.

Spears ran into two consecutive clotheslines before getting laid out with a scoop slam. Wardlow stepped in to save his partner, but Boulder sandwiched both Pinnacle members in the corner.

Boulder caught Wardlow in mid-air and put him down with a slam. Not many people can do that to Wardlow! Boulder went for the moonsault press from the second turnbuckle, but Wardlow rolled out and hit a big clothesline.

Boulder escaped the fireman’s carry and even blocked Spears’ double sledgehammer. He took him out with a powerslam before tagging in Bronson. Bear Country attempted the assisted splash, but Wardlow countered with the ‘Casualty of War’ finisher when Boulder came down.

A unique finish handed Pinnacle another win.

Ethan Page avoided the Tornado DDT by sending Del Sol into the barricade once again. Page executed a backbreaker and exchanged words with the crowd for some heat.

The match finally resumed in the ring as Page dropped Del Sol with an aggressive hammer throw. Fuego created some space with a roll-up but got hit by another big clothesline.

Page kept Fuego grounded for a few seconds until the masked man broke free. He couldn’t capitalize as Page executed a back-body drop.

Del Sol landed a springboard moonsault, followed by a double-footed stomp to the back of the head. He got a near fall before calling for the Tornado DDT.

Ethan Page avoided contact and responded with a massive power slam for a near fall. Fuego escaped out of the Ego Edge again to connect with an enziguri.

This time, he executed another foot stomp on the top rope, but Page kicked out at two and survived an upset loss. He absorbed another kick at the top but stopped Del Sol’s Spanish Fly attempt. Ethan then body-slammed Fuego down to the mat and trucked him down with a shoulder tackle.

AEW Dark Main Event: Adam Cole vs. Anthony Greene

Adam Cole made his AEW Dark debut against fellow ex-NXT star Anthony Greene.

Anthony was impressed with how the fans welcomed Adam Cole as they prepared for the final match of the episode. Cole masterfully baited the crowd into thinking he was about to toss his shirt towards them. The former WWE star dumped it near the turnbuckle and got a chorus of boos in return. Classic pre-match heelwork!

The main event finally got underway with a collar and elbow tie-up. Adam Cole used his experience to get the early advantage as he was a step ahead of his opponent.

However, Cole wasted a lot of time showboating and didn’t see Greene’s incoming dropkicks, the second of which sent Adam out of the ring.

Greene grabbed Cole’s shirt and finally threw it into the crowd. Cole recuperated on the outside as the referee started the 10-count. The Elite member landed a pump kick and retained control of the contest.

Anthony couldn’t deal with Cole’s explosivity, but he showed resilience by making the match a legitimate boxing fight. Greene fired off in the corner and executed a jawbreaker-neckbreaker combo. Cole reacted by shutting Greene down with the Ushigoroshi neckbreaker.

Cole set the stage for the superkick and cracked Greene’s jaw with the famous strike. Adam looked for the Panama Sunrise, but Greene avoided it and landed a massive kick. Cole kicked out but couldn’t evade the Michinoku Driver. He escaped another upset by kicking out of the subsequent pinfall attempt.

Cole got back with an enziguri and a backstabber for a near fall. Greene was a tough competitor as a frustrated Cole was desperate for the finish. He almost got caught in a cradle pin and was laid out with a flapjack.

Greene delivered a giant Crucifix bomb, but Adam Cole kicked out yet again. Anthony seamlessly transitioned to a single-leg crab as Cole was close to suffering a shocking loss.

Adam Cole tried to get to the bottom rope, but Greene pulled him back to the center. Cole turned his hips, got to his back, and fired off three up-kicks.

Both men proceeded to put together an intense back-and-forth sequence. Greene attempted the spinning splash from the top, but Cole amazingly caught him with a superkick in mid-air. Fans, commentators and the referee were left stunned by the impact as Adam Cole picked up Greene and delivered the knee strike to the back of the head. Pinfall…1…2…3!
