AEW President Tony Khan has announced that there will be a special edition of AEW Dark: Elevation tonight (August 4), featuring soon-to-be Jon Moxley opponent, Mance Warner.
It appears one likely reason for this is that AEW wants Warner to have a 1-0 undefeated winning record in AEW before he takes on Jon Moxley, just to give Warner at least a small amount of momentum heading into the match with Moxley on this week’s live episode of AEW Rampage.
Tony Nese and Josh Woods are also set to pick up a win before they take on Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland on Rampage, and AEW also set up Madison Rayne’s opponent for her in-ring debut which is set for Rampage as well.
After a great #AEWDynamite,
Special Thursday #AEWDark:Elevation TONIGHT!
