Ever since the introduction of 205 Live, holding regular dark matches after SmackDown Live has become a thing as a way to keep the fans glued to their seats till the end of the night.
On the other hand, Raw often does not have a dark match associated with it, and instead, they usually shoot a couple of matches for Main Event every week before the show starts.
However, the company did something interesting this week and held a dark match while the show was still on and Bobby Lashley’s interview was being aired.
The untelevised match saw the recently debuted Authors Of Pain defeating local talents in a quick match, similar to their appearance last week.
No word yet on what the company has in plans for Authors Of Pain in future, but being in a meaningless dark match just weeks after their debut is certainly not a good sign for the duo.
