RUSH vs Blake Christian on AEW Dark

RUSH makes his Dark debut taking on ROH signee Blake Christian. RUSH is no doubt one of the toughest competitors Blake has faced so far in his AEW/ROH run. Christian has faced off against some of the best AEW has to offer, including Powerhouse Hobbs and former ROH World Champion Jay Lethal, but came up short on both occasions.

While RUSH, even in defeat, has looked like a nearly unstoppable monster. His only singles loss has been to two-time AEW World Champion Jon Moxley, and he still gave him one of the toughest matches in his second reign. Usually, I would make the point that the loss La Facion Ingobernable suffered in the first round of AEW’s Inaugural Trios Championship tournament could affect RUSH; I think it will only serve as fuel to his fire.

RUSH will turn in another dominating performance, but there will be a ton of great action on tonight’s show, so tune in!
