This week on AEW Dark: Elevation, Stokely Hathaway & Ethan Page make The Firm’s newest member Matt Hardy’s life a living hell hitting him with rules, fines and suspensions. Claudio Castagnoli takes on QT Marshall, Emi Sakura teams up with Mei Suruga, The Blonds (without the ‘varsity’) takes on The Workhorsemen and Ortiz continues to keep Eddie Kingston under control.

Chris Bey & Juice Robinson suspect Bully Ray attacked Ace Austin, Taylor Wilde vs. Mia Yim and Frankie Kazarian officially vacated the X-Division Championship.
NJPW Strong has the debut of Shingo Takagi as he takes on Rocky Romero, Yuya Uemura vows to get revenge on Christopher Daniels after being turned on him and the West Coast Wrecking Crew takes on Greg Sharpe & Jakob Austin Young.
