Dustin Rhodes def. Gustavo
We found out at the end of Saturday's Dynamite that Dustin will be partaking in the AEW World Championship Eliminator Tournament. I have no idea why since it feels like he barely wrestles nowadays, but I can't complain about getting a potentially great match between him and Bryan Danielson in the first round. This was quicker than I thought it would be, but it did give Dustin a win before he faces Danielson. He can still very much hold his own even in his 50s.
ROH World Tag Team Champions La Faccion Ingobernable (Kenny King and ROH World Television Champion Dragon Lee) def. ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions S.O.S.
This stemmed from King and Lee attacking S.O.S. last week. We haven't seen much of S.O.S. in standard tag team action over the last year, but they're an impressive duo and took the fight to La Faccion Ingobernable here. This was a very good match and I appreciated that there was minimal interference from other members of their respective factions. S.O.S. were protected in defeat, so it will be interesting to see if this feud continues.
The Buy-In: Tay Conti def. Santana Garrett
As most people have pointed out, these two previously met on an episode of WWE NXT almost exactly two years ago. Both women were criminally underutilized there and Conti is already having more success for herself in AEW. I hope Garrett can join her, but nothing is official. She looked good here, even though the match was relatively brief. I appreciate that Conti got some actual competition for a change because she usually faces unknown enhancement talent on the Dark shows.
Boa def. Jeet Rama
I was going to call Rama one of WWE's newest recruits from India, but he's actually been under a developmental deal with the company since 2015. If he isn't TV ready by this point, when will he ever be? I thought he had a solid showing against AJ Styles at Superstar Spectacle earlier this year, but there was never any follow-up. Meanwhile, Boa is just abysmal and the Tian Sha act is nothing without Xia Li. This was pretty much what you'd expect it to be in that it was nothing special.
