AEW Dark Elevation

The following article contains spoilers regarding the upcoming episode of AEW Dark: Elevation.

Ahead of the October 6th episode of AEW Dynamite in Philadelphia, AEW taped a series of matches for an upcoming episode of Dark: Elevation.

At the taping, former ECW star Blue Meanie made a shock appearance to confront Joey Janela. Ahead of his match, Janela cut an anti-Philadelphia promo where he ran down hardcore wrestling and NBA star Ben Simmons for leaving the Sixers. As he tried to leave, Blue Meanie ran down to stop him.

The appearance was especially pertinent as ECW famously emanated from Philadelphia. While the promotion also held a strong connection to New York, Philadelphia was always home. The famed ECW Arena saw many of the company’s most memorable moments while the Blue Meanie himself also hails from the city.

Numerous prominent AEW stars were also in action at the taping with FTR, Ruby Soho and Tay Conti all picking up wins.

You can read the full results below.

  • Penelope Ford def Notorious Mimi
  • Santana and Ortiz def Primal Fear
  • FTR def Lee Moriarty & LSG
  • Joey Janela def Crowbar
  • Ruby Soho def Emi Sakura
  • The Butcher, The Blade & Private Party def Nightmare Family (Lee Johnson, Brock Anderson) & Best Friends (Wheeler Yuta & Chuck Taylor)

Meanwhile on Dynamite, “Hangman” Adam Page returned to win the Casino Ladder Match earning himself an AEW World Title shot in the process.
