Athena vs. Emi Sakura

Coming off her first loss since joining the AEW roster, Athena looks to rebound against the overlooked Emi Sakura on AEW Dark: Elevation. Athena is the favorite going into this match-up, but there’s one big reason why Sakura shouldn’t be overlooked. Since her debut, Athena’s entire purpose in All Elite Wrestling has been to go after and defeat TBS Champion Jade Cargill.

She got her shot at All Out and came up short, losing to Cargill in less than five minutes. After suffering such a devastating loss, one has to factor in the potential mental state of Athena heading into this match-up. Sakura could easily take advantage of this opportunity and score the biggest win in her AEW career. Unfortunately for Sakura, I see Athena coming back, fired up from her defeat, and on a mission to earn a rematch with the undefeated champion.

This will be one of many great matches set for this evening, so be sure to tune in!
