Top 3 Takeaways from Dark: Elevation 6th Feb 2023

This week's recap of AEW's YouTube show, Dark: Elevation. Episode 101 on February 6th 2023


This week’s Elevation came to you from Dayton, Ohio, with 9 matches featuring the Nyla Rose, Emi Sakura, Diamonte, Marina Shafir and more... Here are your Highlights

#1 Two Tag Teams dropped?


Ari Daivari & Tony Nese found themselves tag teaming for the 3rd week in a row, which had me thinking that this is becoming a “thing” rather than a “happy accident”. Before their main event match against BCC’s Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta, they found themselves in a backstage interview with Lexy Nair.

During this interview my thoughts were confirmed, Mark Sterling referred to them both as “his clients”, right before Ari referred to the duo as a “tag team”. I commented a few weeks back on the Trustbusters being MIA since Parker Boudreaux left, but it would seem they have fizzled out entirely – with no explanation?! Also where does this leave Josh Woods and the Varsity Athletes? We need answers!


#2 A New Look Debuted


Not much of a change-up, but The Butcher is now sporting a fully bald new look! Meaning Matt Menard can no longer refer to him as a Willie Nelson look alike. Butcher along with his partner, The Blade had a great match against Top Flight. It was however, in a losing effort, with Darius Martin making a superb blind tag to his brother, right before being hit with the Drag the Lake. Aubrey called off the pin, which would have certainly given the mercenaries the win. Right before Dante came back and hit the Nose Dive for the win.


#3 Is Angelico Injured?


The Spanish Announce Project found themselves in trios action this week, except one of their troop was missing. Zack Clayton would be replacing Angelico. The Spanish announcer has noticeably not been in action the last few weeks, but instead has been joining his stable-mates at ringside. I’ve not seen or heard of any injury confirmation, but I can’t see another reason for him not wrestling?
