The month of July has been a hot start for All Elite Wrestling thus far, going back on the road and putting great show after great show. To think this is just the beginning, and fans will be treated to Night Two of Fyter Fest this coming Wednesday and, at the end of the month, another AEW Dynamite special Fight For The Fallen. AEW has been on a tear as of late if we were to go by all the recent editions of their flagship show and last week’s loaded AEW Dark: Elevation card. This week, things will not be any different as this week’s show looks promising. The women’s division is in full showcase mode once again. Young up-and-comers like Dulce Tormenta, who have been waiting in the wings, get their shot to show what they’re really made of. Veterans will also look to delight the fans with possibly the best wrestling in the world as we speak. So, sit tight, lay back, and take in all the action. Because it’s Monday night once again and it’s time for another edition of Elevation. Monday is the day, YouTube is the place. You know the drill, let’s run it down.

A Lesson in Power
Powerhouse Hobbs is itching for a fight on this week’s edition of Elevation. He will take on Rhodes Wrestling Academy standout Lucas Chase, who’s also making his AEW debut. By Hobb’s side is Hook and the brand new FTW World Champion “Absolute” Ricky Starks. On Night One of Fyter Fest, the entirety of Team Taz has made their allegiance very clear that they’re fully behind Starks by assisting him in securing the outlawed FTW World Championship. Thus, they left “The Machine” Brian Cage by the wayside. Hobbs, Hook, Ricky, and, Taz seemed to be very happy with the decision of “trimming the fat” and refocusing on what matters most; winning. Chase who has worked for promotions such as XWA and Paradise Alley Pro Wrestling will have his hands full with the mastodon of Team Taz so he better be ready. Will “The Cure” have a remedy to stop the monster or will Powerhouse Hobbs make quick work of the youngster?
The Journey Back to the Top
Hikaru Shida has not slowed down despite losing the AEW Women’s World Championship almost two months ago. The record-setting former women’s champion has racked up four straight wins since then and will look to continue this winning streak against a young woman making her AEW debut in the form of Dulce Tormenta. The masked wonder has worked for promotions such as Mission Pro Wrestling, Lucha Libre Entertainment, and, New Era Pro Wrestling to name a few. What a dance partner she will have in her debut, as she takes on one of the absolute best All Elite Wrestling has to offer. Will the luchadora pull an upset or will Shida continue her winning ways?
