Howdy people and welcome to the AEW Dark Elevation and AEW Dark recaps from June 14th and June 15th.
Both shows clocked in at roughly 1 hour and 15 minutes (give or take a minute) making each show fly by and easy to watch. I would say these week’s shows were not a strong as the past three weeks, but I would definitely recommend watching Wardlow’s matches on both shows. They were used to push Wardlow’s match against Jake Hager on this week’s Dynamite. Wardlow’s finishing move against Jason Hotch on Elevation was absolutely sick!! Evil Uno/Stu Grayson vs Shane Mercer and KTB from Dark is also a good match to check out where both teams got some good offence in.
AEW Elevation – June 14th, 2021
Tony Schiavone kicks off the show with a Wardlow interview who states it’s Wardlow week.
1. Wardlow defeated Jason Hotch by ref stoppage when he knocked out Hotch with a vicious looking knee strike.
2. Lee Johnson and Dustin Rhodes beat VSK and Travis Titan when Johnson hit an inverted neckbreaker on VSK.
3. Angelico submitted Mike Sydal with the Navarro Death Roll. After the match, Matt Hardy who appeared during the match made Anjelico attack Mike Sydall outside the ring but Matt Sydal made the save.
4. Shawn Spears defeated Falco with the C4 (Death Valley Driver).
5. Wingman promo talking about the Wingman makeover program.
6. Mark Quen and Isiah Kassiday (w/ Matt Hardy, The Blade and The Bunny) beat Dean Alexander and Carlie Bravo when Private Party hit the Gin and Juice and pin on Charlie Bravo.
