Joey Janela vs. Alan “5” Angels on AEW Dark: Elevation

On last week’s episode of AEW Dark: Elevation, “The Bad Boy” Joey Janela turned heel on his longtime tag team partner, Sonny Kiss, after weeks of tension. Kiss hasn’t been seen since. Tonight, Janela takes on The Dark Order‘s Alan “5” Angels in one-on-one action. Only time will tell to see if Kiss is waiting in the wings for his former tag team partner.

Kiera Hogan Debuts in AEW Against Hikaru Shida

Kiera Hogan has been around for several years but is probably best known to wrestling fans for her time in IMPACT Wrestling, where she was a 2x Knockouts Tag Team Champion with Tasha Steelz. Last month, she announced she was leaving IMPACT to see what else was out there for her, and it hasn’t taken long for AEW to set its sights on her. This week, Kiera Hogan debuts against former AEW Women’s World Champion, Hikaru Shida.
