Dark match (professional wrestling)
In professional wrestling, a dark match is a match that is part of a televised card, but is not itself televised. Most dark matches are held at the beginning of wrestling cards; usually, one or two dark matches are used to "warm up" the live crowd for the upcoming televised event.
Dark matches typically feature either local talent, or talent from developmental territories for a larger promotion. Televised WWE cards will often feature talent from its main developmental territory, Ohio Valley Wrestling, in their dark matches.
