Preview: AEW Dark (03/14/2023)

AEW Dark feat Dark Order, Riho, Julia Hart, Action Andretti and Sonny Kiss

Though only five matches are currently scheduled, this week’s AEW Dark card looks to be action-packed! Dark Order’s Alex Reynolds and John Silver will face off with the surging tag team The Outrunners. Action Andretti looks to rebound from losses to Sammy Guevara as he takes on Lee Johnson. Our focus will be on singles action as House of Black’s Julia Hart takes on the debuting Zoey Lynn.

Full AEW Dark Card (03/14/2023)

  • House of Black’s Julia Hart vs. Zoey Lynn
  • Trustbusters’ Sonny Kiss vs. Terry Kid
  • Dark Order’s Alex Reynolds and John Silver vs. The Outrunners
  • Action Andretti vs. Lee Johnson
  • Riho vs. Diamante
  • Julia Hart vs. Zoey Lynn

The House of Black has had a wave of momentum behind them since capturing the AEW World Trios Championship. Julia Hart will look to ride that wave to victory as she takes on the debuting Zoey Lynn, better known to most as Zoey Skye. Lynn is a well-traveled competitor, having competed in promotions like SHIMMER, Stardom, CZW, and MLW.

She’s also faced many great competitors, and her record includes a win over former ROH Women’s World Champion Mercedes Martinez. That win alone is more significant than any Julia has been able to pick up in her AEW career. I do still favor Hart in this match-up, as while she does not have a win at the level of Martinez, she has competed against elite-level wrestlers more consistently than Zoey. That win also occurred two years ago before Martinez had found her stride in AEW. Add in the mentorship Julia received from the other members of the House of Black, plus the earlier mentioned momentum the group has, and that basically erases almost any chance Lynn has at capturing the win.

She will show why she deserves another shot to become “All Elite”, but Hart will walk away with the win.
