Matt Sydal vs. PAC on AEW Dark!

In what is sure to be a great match, PAC will take on Matt Sydal on this week’s episode of Dark. PAC is no doubt looking ahead to All Out on Sunday, however, when he faces off against Andrade El Idolo.

Andrade has been targeting the Death Triangle trio of PAC and The Lucha Brothers (Penta El Zero M & Rey Fenix) ever since he arrived in AEW back in June. With his “executive consultant,” Chavo Guerrero Jr., by his side, Andrade has spent the last several weeks taunting The Lucha Brothers, asking them why they “work for” PAC, and calling himself the true face of Latino wrestling in AEW.

Things came to a head a few weeks ago on Dynamite when PAC laid down the challenge to Andrade for All Out. Andrade accepted, and although both men worked for WWE and are former NXT champions, this will be their first-ever one-on-one contest, and it’s sure to be a great match.

Tonight, however, PAC will be facing against the former Evan Bourne in WWE, Matt Sydal. Sydal is a solid high-flier in his own right, and shouldn’t be overlooked. The two are sure to put on an exciting match on the road to All Out. Check out all the action tonight on AEW Dark!
