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 defeated Heather Reckless (1:51)
Jay looked very crisp and got a quick submission win with the Queen Slayer.
Powerhouse Hobbs & Ricky Starks (w/ Taz) defeated Jordan Kross & Joey Jett (3:26)
Even though Jett was bigger than Hobbs, Hobbs still threw him around easily. Hobbs then mauled Kross in the corner with forearms. Starks tagged in and hit a beautiful dropkick and then knocked out Jett with an open hand slap. Starks got the win with the Roshambo. This was a fun squash as we await the eventual Hobbs & Starks vs. Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland rematch.
Ruby Soho defeated Missa Kate (2:37)
Kate busted 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 got a near fall off a pump kick. Soho finished her off with Destination Unknown (Blade Runner/Sister Abigail variation).
Swerve in Our Glory (Swerve Strickland & Keith Lee) defeated Vic Capri & GPA
Lee wrestled the bulk of the match. GPA took a massive powerslam from Lee. Capri tried to clothesline him and simply bounced off of him. Lee tossed Capri across the ring with the super biel. The crowd chanted, “one more time!” and Lee obliged.
GPA ran in and Lee rocked 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 came out on the stage to confront Strickland & Lee. Descension was still teased between Strickland and Lee.
Ethan Page (w/ Dan Lambert) defeated Serpentico (1:34)
Serpentico got a win last week and was looking to make it a streak here. Not surprisingly, that didn’t happen. Page ran through Serpentico with a tackle and pinned him quickly following the Ego’s Edge.
John Silver defeated KM (2:25)
KM is much larger than Silver, so Silver cut him down to size with a dropkick to the knee and a shoulder from the middle turnbuckle. KM got a near fall with a slingshot splash. Sliver got him up for a German suplex and then the Spin Doctor to score the victory. It was a very impressive power display from Silver.
Brody King & Buddy Matthews (w/ Julia Hart) defeated CJ Esparza & Brubaker (2:33)
Murphy suplexed Brubaker into Esparza and King followed up with a cannonball in the corner. King yanked Esparza up by the hair and into a backbreaker from Murphy. Murphy threw Brubaker like an lawn dart into Esparza and tossed him into a sit-out tombstone piledriver from King to get the victory. This was an impressive squash for the House of Black members.
Dark Order (Evil Uno, Alex Reynolds & 10) defeated Max Caster, Austin & Colten Gunn (w/ Billy Gunn & Anthony Bowens) (4:07)
Earlier in the show, there was an excellent pride month spot featuring Bowens.
Caster’s rap took shots at the state’s Republican senators and Joe Biden 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 to the floor. The match finally started with Austin in the ring with Evil Uno after Colton sent Uno headfirst into the ring stairs. Uno was cut off from his corner until he caught Caster with a hangman’s neckbreaker.
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 got into Reynolds' face and Reynolds then knocked him to the floor. Austin rolled up Reynolds and got the pin with his feet on the ropes.
This was a fun night of squashes.
