AEW Debut for Promise Braxton on Dark
AEW Dark continues to be the place for new talent to make their debuts, and tonight that debuting talent is Promise Braxton. Braxton, who is currently the Diamonds Division Champion in Booker T’s Reality of Wrestling promotion, has been working the US indie scene since 2017. Most recently, Braxton successfully defended her title against indie star Laynie Luck at ROW’s all-women’s Diamonds are Forever show. Tonight she makes her AEW debut against Abadon, who has been tearing through opponents for the past several months.
Reality of Wrestling continues to be a pipeline for young talent into All Elite Wrestling. In addition to Braxton, another ROW star in Ryan “Moonshine” Mantell has been appearing on AEW Dark lately, and tonight he’ll be taking on The Blade. Other ROW stars who have appeared in AEW include Kylie Rae, Hyan, and Will Allday.

Aaron Solo vs. Dustin Rhodes
While the bloody feud between QT Marshall and Cody Rhodes seems to have come to an end following the South Beach Strap Match at Road Rager, The Factory will be looking for some measure of revenge tonight on AEW Dark when Aaron Solo takes on Cody’s big brother, Dustin Rhodes.
