Welcome to Wrestling Inc.'s results of "AEW Dark: Elevation" on December 12, 2022, taped at the H-E-B Center in Cedar Park, Texas!

A huge trios match is set for tonight, as Varsity Athletes (Tony Nese and Josh Woods) will team up with The Trustbuster's Ari Daivari to take on Chaos Project (Luther and Serpentico) and Brandon Cutler. Varsity Athletes have been dominant over the course of the past few weeks, and show no sign of slowing down anytime soon while Daivari has been leading The Trustbusters to success over the last few weeks. On the other side of things, Chaos Project and Brandon Cutler have been regularly featured on "Dark" and "Dark: Elevation" over the past few months. Which team will come out on top?

"Cool Hand" Angelo Parker and "Daddy Magic" Matt Menard look to bring home another win for the Jericho Appreciation Society, as they face Zach Mason and Warren Johnson.
