Tonight’s AEW episode “Dark: Elevation” features just two matches. The episode was taped last Wednesday from Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, New York City, and full spoilers can be found at this link.
Elevation is led by Penelope Ford and Kip Sabian vs. Skye Blue and Shawn Dean.
This is only the second time Ford and Sabian have collaborated on AEW programming. The couple came up short against Kenny Omega and Riho on the February 4, 2020 edition of AEW Dark, which was included on the second Chris Jericho Cruise in January 2020.
Ortiz vs. Serpentico was also announced for tonight’s episode.
Ortiz is currently celebrating his 31st birthday. There are reports that his birthday is September 27, but AEW publicly wished him a happy birthday this morning. This will be Ortiz’s first AEW singles match since his hair-vs-hair loss to new ROH World Champion Chris Jericho on the June 16th Road Rager edition of Dynamite. He worked on the Blood & Guts contest in late June, but has been working with Ruby Soho ever since. Going into tonight’s game, Serpentico has lost 11 straight bouts in the AEW ring since his Dark win over Vary Morales in mid-June.
Elevation airs every Monday night at 7pm ET via the official AEW YouTube channel.
