As the COVID-19 situation rolls on, AEW Dark has become somewhat uneven. All Elite Wrestling taped loads of matches at the beginning of April, and they were slowly broadcasting them on both Dark and Dynamite. This is a sound strategy, but it led to episodes of Dark that were much shorter than many were used to. With the return to live broadcasts, it seems that we’re getting a one-time treasure trove of contests as we broadcast everything leftover from last month.
This Tuesday on #AEWDark on our YouTube channel at 7e/6c – To say it's a stacked card would be an understatement.

Announced via social media, AEW will have nine matches on this week’s Dark. Included among them is the AEW return of several stars that have kept away since the lockdown, including Private Party, Kris Statlander, and Fenix. The Jurassic Express is now also back at full strength, we get a singles match featuring Orange Cassidy, and the formal in-ring debut of 10, the Dark Order’s new recruit. In the main event, the violent duo of Dr. Luther and Jimmy Havoc try to settle their differences.
The full match lineup is listed below:
