In conjunction with the announcement, AEW also said that the newly signed “Big Show” Paul Wight will be on commentary for the show.
Here’s more info:
Complementing AEW Dark on Tuesdays, AEW Dark: Elevation will air on Mondays at 7 p.m. ET on AEW’s YouTube channel, and will showcase AEW’s established and rising stars, as well as the top independent wrestlers within the industry, competing against each other in the ring in pursuit of wins. AEW Dark: Elevation will also maintain continuity with AEW DYNAMITE, AEW Dark, AEW pay-per-view shows and streaming events, with wins and losses factoring into each wrestler’s ranking in the company.
Tony Khan said on Twitter that the other long-planned new AEW show that was announced in January of last year and would eventually air on a WarnerMedia channel or streaming service is also still happening this year.
That’s also still happening in 2021! And we’ll have more info tonight on #AEWDynamite about the arrival of @PaulWight here in @AEW, and about the launch and details for #AEWDark: Elevation, which is coming very soon!
