It’s Monday and you know what that means. This week’s AEW Dark: Elevation was taped in Milwaukee, Wisconsin last Wednesday with Excalibur, Mark Henry and Anthony Ogogo on the call.
Anna Jay defeats Heather Reckless (1:51)
Jay looked very sharp and won a quick submission with the Queen Slayer.
Powerhouse Hobbs and Ricky Starks (with Taz) beat Jordan Kross and Joey Jett (3:26)
Even though Jett was taller than Hobbs, Hobbs still threw him easily. Hobbs then mauled Kross in the corner with forearms. Starks scored and hit a nice dropkick, then knocked Jett out with an open hand slap. Starks took the win with the Roshambo. It was a fun squash as we await Hobbs & Starks’ eventual rematch against Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland.
Ruby Soho defeated Missa Kate (2:37)
Kate pulled out a classic spot, raking Soho’s face against the top ring rope. Soho came back with a series of strikes and an enziguri. Soho missed a splash and Kate nearly fell from a pump kick. Soho finished it off with Destination Unknown (Blade Runner/Sister Abigail variant).
Swerve in Our Glory (Swerve Strickland & Keith Lee) def. Vic Capri & GPA
Lee struggled most of the match. GPA took a massive Powerslam from Lee. Capri tried to clothesline him and just bounced off him. Lee threw Capri into the ring with the super biel. The crowd chanted “one more time!” and Lee obliged.
GPA ran and Lee shook him with the Spirit Bomb. Strickland got the blind tag, came in with a top rope Missile dropkick on Capri and got the pin after another kick.
After the match, The Butcher, The Blade and The Bunny took to the stage to confront Strickland & Lee. The downhill was still teased between Strickland and Lee.
Ethan Page (with Dan Lambert) defeated Serpentico (1:34)
Serpentico picked up a win last week and were looking to make a streak of it here. Unsurprisingly, this did not happen. Page ran through Serpentico with a tackle and pinned him quickly following Ego’s Edge.
John Silver beats KM (2:25)
KM is much taller than Silver, so Silver cut him down to size with a knee dropkick and a shoulder from the middle turnbuckle. KM nearly went down with a slingshot splash. Sliver brought him up for a German suplex and then the Spin Doctor to pick up the win. It was a very impressive display of power from Silver.
Brody King and Buddy Matthews (with Julia Hart) defeated CJ Esparza and Brubaker (2:33)
Murphy suplexed Brubaker into Esparza and King followed up with a cannonball in the corner. King pulled Esparza by the hair and into a backbreaker from Murphy. Murphy tossed Brubaker like a lawn dart into Esparza and threw him into a sit-out tombstone piledriver from King for the victory. It was an impressive squash for members of the House of Black.
Dark Order (Evil Uno, Alex Reynolds & 10) defeated Max Caster, Austin & Colten Gunn (with Billy Gunn & Anthony Bowens) (4:07)
Earlier in the show, there was a great Pride Month spot featuring Bowens.
Caster’s rap shot Republican state senators and Joe Biden while falling off his bike, so at least it was bipartisan.
Caster and the Gunns tried to jump the Dark Order team before the bell, but 10 took out both Gunns with a clothesline on the ground. The match eventually began with Austin in the ring with Evil Uno after Colton sent Uno headfirst down the ringside stairs. Uno was cut from his corner until he caught Caster with an executioner’s daredevil.
10 got the hot tag and took out the Gunns with clotheslines and Caster with a spinebuster. Reynolds hit a springboard plancha on the Gunns. Billy Gunn walked into Reynolds’ face and Reynolds then threw him to the ground. Austin rolled up Reynolds and got the pin with his feet on the ropes.
It was a fun squash night.
