Top 3 Takeaways from Dark: Elevation 27th Feb 2023

This week's recap of AEW's YouTube show, Dark: Elevation. Episode 104 on February 27th 2023

This week’s Elevation came to you from Phoenix, Arizona, with 7 matches featuring Athena, Powerhouse Hobbs, The Kingdom, and more... Here are your Highlights

#1 Isi-aaaaaaaah Yeah

Ethan Page really must be a good boss, over the last few weeks we’ve seen him win Matt Hardy over, and now, it seems as though “Cranky-Zay” is no longer cranky! Isiah came out this week with all sorts of peps in his steps.

The Trio, accompanied by Stokley Hathaway gave us a Hardy party on the way to the ring, where Isiah was no longer reluctant to join in. Instead for the second week now he’s come out and asked the crowd to give him and “Awwwwh Yeaaaah!” – obviously they oblige.

#2 She’s Outta Here

Vickie brought out her mean girls trio again this week (Nyla Rose, Marina Shafir & Diamonte) for yet another dominant Dark: Elevation win. The three ladies bullied their opponents all around the ring and all through the match, until one of them literally runs off!

#3 Big Things Coming?

There wasn’t much story telling or news worth moments in this week’s Elevation, so my third moment will be a mention to the main event. We saw Lee Johnson, with Cole Karter, take on Konosuke Takeshita. I don’t believe we’ve seen much of Johnson & Karter since they both aligned with The Factory, so it was good to see them out.

Takeshita ultimately picked up the win, in what was a back and forth match for both men, with Karter taking a nasty bump from a top rope dive by Takeshita. Another notch in the win column for fan favourite Takeshita, are AEW bumping up his win/loss record before he gets the big push we’re all waiting for?
