At least NINE matches are being promoted for tonight’s AEW Dark: Elevation, including Sammy Guevara & Fuego Del Sol vs. Chaos Project...Julia Hart & Big Swole vs. Nyla Rose & Diamante...and Brian Cage vs. Anthony Bowens.
For the first time in more than a thousand days, there is a NEW NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion. Trevor Murdoch ended the near three-year reign of Nick Aldis in the main event of last night’s 73rd Anniversary pay per view...pinning Aldis after a leaping bulldog from the top rope.
