Eight matches will air on AEW Dark Elevation on Monday including Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta involved in a triple threat.

The matches taped at the Kia Forum in Inglewood will see the ROH World & ROH Pure Champion in action against The Butcher & The Blade and Top Flight. The match will air 48 hours before Top Flight’s rematch with The Young Bucks, scheduled for Wednesday’s edition of Dynamite in Fresno, California.

Willie Mack will be wrestling Brian Cage with the two having a lengthy history across multiple promotions, most famously in Lucha Underground where they had a pair of Falls Count Anywhere matches on the first two Ultima Lucha finales.

The Buffalo Brothers tandem of Daniel Garcia and Kevin Blackwood will have their first singles match together since last year’s PWG Battle of Los Angeles tournament.

ROH Women’s Champion Athena will be taking on Zheda Zhang in a title eliminator match. Zhang was part of the inaugural Mae Young Classic in 2017 and worked for the company for a year.
