First Ever AEW Dark: Elevation Match To Be Filmed Before Dynamite

All Elite Wrestling have announced that the first match for its brand new show, AEW Dark: Elevation, will be filmed prior to the 10/03 edition of Dynamite.

The new property, set to be helmed by Tony Schiavone and recent AEW signee Paul Wight, will debut on Monday, March 15th on the company’s YouTube channel.

AEW confirmed via social media that the first match filmed for the programme will feature Jungle Boy going up against AEW Dark regular Danny Limelight.

Whilst Jungle Boy is an established AEW roster member, Limelight has picked up a pair of wins on AEW Dark (against Sean Maluta and Fuego Del Sol, respectively), which may suggest that the company has plans for him.

The pair are familiar with each other, having trained together previously, as alluded to in Limelight’s exclusive interview with Inside the Ropes from October 2020.

Limelight, who also competes on New Japan Strong, had recently been forced to miss several sets of television tapings due to contracting COVID-19 earlier in the year.

Fortunately, he was able to make his return to AEW Dark last week in a losing effort to SCU, alongside former Ring of Honor star Azrieal.

Catch the debut episode of AEW Dark: Elevation on Monday 15th at 7pm ET / 12am GMT on AEW’s YouTube channel.
