It’s Monday and you know what that means: a seven-match AEW Dark: Elevation taped last Wednesday at the Wolstein Center in Cleveland, Ohio, with Tony Schiavone, Paul Wight and Mark Henry on the call.

Lance Archer (w/ Jake Roberts) defeated Chase Oliver

This was Oliver's debut and it started with Archer dragging him to the ring. Archer (44-9) destroyed Oliver from beginning to end, beating him with the Blackout in a squash. This was another win for him ahead of his World title Texas Death Match with Hangman Page.

After the match, Archer cut a promo about coming back and wanting the World title and Hangman Page. Archer ended his promo with his iconic "Everybody dies" catchphrase.

Brandi Rhodes (w/ Arn Anderson) defeated KiLynn King

This was a homecoming match for Dark and Dark: Elevation regular King. She had the height advantage and used it to her advantage at the onset. Rhodes asked Anderson for advice on how to deal with King, but that didn’t work at all. Rhodes eventually targeted King’s legs to slow her down and change the flow of the match. Rhodes won with the Stretch Mark submission, upping her career record to 15-3.

Jay Lethal defeated Casey Carrington

This was the AEW debut for Carrington. Lethal started with a suicide dive, followed by the Ric Flair strut. Lethal dominated as Carrington was outmatched at every opportunity. A Macho Man elbow and the Lethal Injection got him his fourth AEW win of the year. He moves on to face FTW Champion Ricky Starks this Friday on Rampage.

Anna Jay defeated Nikki Victory

This was Victory's AEW debut. Jay (24-11) won this short match by submission with the Queenslayer.

Dante Martin, Lee Moriarty & Matt Sydal defeated Aaron Solo, Nick Comoroto & QT Marshall (w/ Anthony Ogogo)

The Factory began by hitting Sydal, Moriarty and Martin from behind before the bell rang while their backs were to them. Sydal’s speed eventually forced Solo to tag Comoroto which once again changed the flow in favor of The Factory. Comoroto also showcased his strength by lifting Martin only using one arm.

Ogogo interfered in favor of The Factory until the ref kicked him out. The Factory then isolated Sydal from Moriarty and Martin and took turns beating him up. Sydal used an impressive tijeras to finally escape and tag Martin who cleaned house.

The Factory used a triple combo to almost win the match, but Martin was able to kick out and the crowd went nuts. Martin hit the Nosedive on Solo to pick up the win.

Ruby Soho & Thunder Rosa defeated Joseline Navarro & Megan Meyers

This marked the debuts for Navarro and Meyers while this was Soho and Rosa's second straight outing as a team and that experience working together helped them dominate here. Meyers took both a Future Kick and a fire thunder driver as Rosa and Soho won the match.

After the match, Mercedes Martinez came out to stare down Rosa ahead of their Rampage match this Friday.

Penta El Zero Miedo (w/ Alex Abrahantes) defeated Serpentico

Penta got the best reaction of the episode as the crowd went bonkers when he came out. On a side note, when Penta did his first "zero miedo," he cursed in Spanish so fans that speak Spanish will really pop for that. Serpentico also talked in Spanish and said "maldita sea" meaning "damn it."

This match was a great showcase for the argument that Penta (and Fenix as well) could be great players in AEW as singles stars. Penta picked up the win after hitting the Fear Factor won the match, increasing his overall record to 58-28.

Final Thoughts:

This was an enjoyable episode of Elevation. The best match of the night was Moriarty, Sydal and Martin vs. The Factory, but Serpentico vs. Penta was also fun and another match to check out.
