AEW Dark results: Lee Moriarty vs. Leon Ruffin

Tuesday's eight matches also included Sonny Kiss, Jay Lethal, and the Dark Order.

This week's AEW Dark matches were taped at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.

Lee Moriarty defeated Leon Ruffin

Moriarty took Ruffin (the former Leon Ruff in WWE NXT) to the mat with an armdrag when the bell rang. Ruffin fought back, much to the approval of the crowd, and stood to his feet by applying a headlock to Moriarty. This wouldn't affect Moriarty, however, as he easily escaped.

Ruffin would go on to dodge a running Moriarty attack and turn it into a backbreaker. After Moriarty made it back to his feet, he planted Ruffin with a pump handle suplex, followed by a discus lariat for a near fall.

Ruffin went to the top rope and tried to make magic happen, but Moriarty caught him with a knockout blow following the jump. Shortly after, Moriarty hit a elevated flatliner for the win. 

He and ROH World Champion Jonathan Gresham will face Tully Blanchard's Gates of Agony on Friday's Rampage.

Bear Country defeated The Skulk (Adrian Alanis & Liam Gray)

Gray and Bear Boulder started off. After Boulder almost threw him across the ring, Gray tagged out to Alanis. Bear Bronson came in and delivered a few chops to Alanis in the corner before Gray came in and chipped the knee of Bronson. Alanis tried to capitalize on the opportunity, but Bronson sat down on him for a near fall.

Boulder came in shortly after and caught Gray in a powerslam while nailing Alanis with a powerbomb. Moments later, Bronson came in for the assisted cannonball for the win.

AQA defeated Avery Breaux

Breaux was very aggressive from the get-go, trapping AQA in the corner with her boot and following up with a cannonball. After that, Breaux had AQA trapped in a headlock until she fought out of the hold. AQA followed her escape up with a rolling neckbreaker for the victory.

Josh Woods defeated Barrett Brown

The former ROH Pure Champion wrestled Brown to the mat when the bell rang. After Brown fought out of a few different holds, Woods delivered a few single-leg shotgun kicks. Woods quickly submitted Brown with an armbar moments later.

Sonny Kiss defeated Lamar Diggs

Diggs overpowered Kiss early on, throwing him around the ring with ease. Kiss fought back and delivered a couple of kicks to the head, which took Diggs to the mat. Moments later, Kiss tapped out Diggs with a crossface.

Aaron Solo (w/ QT Marshall) defeated Fuego Del Sol

Fuego missed a tornado DDT attempt early on and spilled to the outside. After beginning an argument with QT Marshall, Solo charged and kicked Del Sol outside of the ring.

When both men made it back in the ring, Solo delivered a standing suplex. After having control for a few more moments, Solo lost his grip on the match after Del Sol hit the tornado DDT. When Del Sol transitioned to a hangman's clutch, Marshall jumped on the apron and distracted the referee.

This led to Solo hitting a backdrop bomb for a very close near fall. Solo was frustrated at this point which allowed Del Sol to trap his arm and roll him up for the win.

Jay Lethal & Satnam Singh (w/ Sonjay Dutt) defeated Darian Bengston & Gus De La Vega

Bengston and Lethal started off. Bengston didn't last long before Vega came in and was on the receiving end of some strikes from Lethal. The match changed course after Singh entered and delivered a massive big boot to Bengston. Shortly after, Singh delivered his signature spinning helicopter bomb on Bengston for the win.

Dark Order (Evil Uno, 10, John Silver & Alex Reynolds) defeated The Wingmen (Peter Avalon, Ryan Nemeth, JD Drake & Cezar Bononi)

Although Nemeth and Uno started off , tags were frequent as the match fell apart early. Bononi began to work down Reynolds as the crowd began to fire up Dark Order. Drake came in and delivered a great swinging neckbreaker as Dark Order began to get antsy on the apron, awaiting the hot tag.

Silver eventually scored the hot tag and sent Avalon flying across the ring with an overhead german suplex. After nailing Nemeth with a forearm, Silver then delivered a brainbuster to Avalon. Uno came in and attempted a swanton on a seemingly down Avalon, but it ultimately missed as Avalon rolled out of the way.

The Wingmen got one last gasp, hitting a few combination top rope maneuvers before succumbing to a assisted dive from Reynolds and 10. Moments later, Avalon was rolled in the ring and was hit with a discus lariat from 10 which gave Dark Order the win.
