Britt Baker and Penelope Ford def. Riho and Yuka Sakazaki
Sakazaki and Baker had a match on Dynamite a few weeks ago (which was won by Sakazaki) while Ford and Riho were on opposite ends of a mixed tag team matchup on Dark recently, so this made sense. Everyone worked hard, the pace was consistent throughout and the crowd was into the action. Baker and Ford are coming along the ring, but Riho and Sakazaki were the ones who really stood out here. The heels going over was the right call as Baker attempts to establish herself as a credible heel. Having her pin Riho was even better.
This was an abridged version of AEW Dark at only 20 minutes in length due to everything being taped before/during Revolution on Sunday. I liked how they didn't drag it out and didn't skip an episode of Dark, instead utilizing some of the backstage interviews and the pre-pre-show match for Dark (as opposed to their YouTube channel). There isn't you absolutely need to see here, but it was a quick, harmless watch. I'm more excited for what Dynamite has in store on Wednesday.
