One couldn't be more thrilled about this week's episode of AEW Dark: Elevation, as the company produced a stacked edition last week, which saw some star appearances from Sting and Darby Allin.
A total of 12 matches were booked tonight in Texas. The action-packed show also shed some light on feuds that could emerge on the upcoming AEW Dynamite Fyter Fest Night 2.
That said, let's dive straight into the results and analysis of the latest episode of AEW Dark: Elevation.

Kingston reminded everyone about himself and Penta on becoming the only tag team to hand a loss to the Young Bucks this year. He added that they were screwed over, and that is why they will take out their frustration on their opponents later in the night.
