Winner: Cezar Bononi, by pinfall
Pretty Peter is excited for Beautiful Bononi’s big win here! Will they continue to climb up the rankings and make AEW the best looking company today?
Dark is big again, but still under two hours, so that was good. We got some really good matches, such as the opener with Silver-Reynolds, then SCU VS WCWC, Evans VS Dante, and QT VS Dean. But my major complaint is that the show opens with Taz and Excalibur calling the FTR Championship match the main event. But looking at this, it WASN’T the main event! It was the middle of the card! Was that just bad editing of the match order? The FTW Championship match was certainly good, and a touch longer than the actual main event of Bononi VS Skyler, and given the story from Dynamite, it should’ve been the actual main event, not just in name.
Taz and Starks were on commentary, griping every moment Cutler got offense in, but then were happy when Cage won. There could be quite the story with Cage and the rest of Team Taz not being on the same page about Sting, and maybe Taz makes it a point of taking the title off Cage and putting it on another Team Taz member, like Will Hobbs. But my main thing is, if you call it the main event, then show it’s the main event. Elevation may have claimed to have three main events, but at least all three were at the end of the show, following the rules of calling something a main event.
My Score: 8.1/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (3/28/23)
QTV gets Dark!
QTV is in Universal Studios!
After helping Will Hobbs hold onto the AEW TNT Championship, QT Marshall & Aaron Solo get back in action! Will this be one for the headlines?
- AR Fox VS Nick Comoroto; Fox wins.
- Queen Aminata VS Skye Blue; Skye wins.
- Evil Uno VS Alexander Moss; Uno wins.
- Marina Shafir VS Steph De Lander; Shafir wins.
- Zack Clayton VS Schaff; Clayton wins.
- Top Flight VS Liam Gray & Adrian Alanis; Top Flight wins.
- QT Marshall & Aaron Solo w/ Harley Cameron VS Austin Green & Vary Morales; QT & Solo win.
- Brady Booker VS Serpentico; Brady wins.
- Konosuke Takeshita VS Cole Karter; Konosuke wins.
A good line-up here. Just as I was wondering where Nick Comoroto was, he’s here on Dark to put AR Fox over. For those unfamiliar, Steph De Lander is formerly Persia Pirotta of NXT, though she has a very different look now, I almost didn’t recognize her. Brady Booker, formerly Bodhi Hayward, is back in action, good to see him. And while most of these matches seem pretty straight forward, I feel like Queen Aminata VS Skye Blue is the one that could go either way. Skye’s been building herself up in AEW and ROH but Aminata is impressive in her own right.

Mitchell’s AEW Dark: Elevation Results & Report! (3/27/23)
Independence gets Elevated!
The Firm is still in business!
Despite Stokely Hathaway losing on AEW Dynamite, Ethan Page and the team are in action on Elevation! Will business be good for The Firm?
- Ari Daivari & Tony Nese w/ Mark Sterling VS Lane Summers & Campbell Myers; Daivari & Nese win.
- Marina Shafir & Nyla Rose VS The Hale Sisters, Briar & Sage; Shafir & Nyla win.
- Willow Nightingale VS Maggie Lee; Willow wins.
- “Big Bill” Morrissey & Lee Moriarty VS Zack Clayton & Anaya; Morrissey & Moriarty win.
- ROH Women’s World Championship Proving Grounds Match: Athena VS Tootie Lynn; Athena wins and denies Tootie a title opportunity.
- Six Man Tag: Matt Hardy, Isiah Kassidy & Ethan Page VS Spanish Announce Project; Hardy, Kassidy & Ethan win.
- Riho VS Diamante; Riho wins.
A good line-up, and I like that all members of The Firm are active after Stokely got beat down by Hook and the Gunns retained their titles. Though, are the Gunns even still affiliated with The Firm? It seems like they just broke off as soon as they got the tag titles. Anyway, good to see Athena in another match ahead of Supercard of Honor this Friday. And good to see Spanish Announce Project (Angelico, Serpentico & Luther) in action as a full trio, but I’m pretty sure they’ll put The Firm over to build Ethan’s momentum into taking on Hook.
