Twelve matches have been announced for tonight’s AEW Dark episode.

Tonight’s show will feature two significant debuts – ROH Pure Champion Josh Woods and former MMA fighter turned WWE NXT Superstar Mafina Shafir.

Woods will make his AEW debut, just days after retaining over Brian Johnson at Saturday’s Final Battle pay-per-view, which was the final ROH event for the time being. Woods will face Shawn Spears tonight. He took to Twitter and hyped the match up.

“There is purity in darkness @AEW #AEWDark #TheTechnicalBeast v #TheChairman @ShawnSpears,” Woods wrote.

Shafir, who was released from WWE back on June 25, will debut against Kris Statlander tonight, with Orange Cassidy in Statlander’s corner. NXT Cruiserweight Champion Roderick Strong, who is married to Shafir, sent a warning to Cassidy, apparently referring to how their husband Troy attended the AEW Dark tapings with his mother.

“OC better keeps those hands in his pocket or #SpiderboyTroy is gonna give him the business. #Theproblem,” Strong wrote.

Shafir later tweeted a photo of she and her son, apparently backstage at the AEW Dark taping, and wrote, “Right before this picture, Troy whispered in my ear, ‘Hey Ma, they ain’t ready..’ #TheProblem #MoldavianManiac #Stronghold #Family #AewDark #AEW”

Tonight’s Dark episode will also feature the main AEW in-ring debut of Japanese star Mei Suruga. Suruga worked the AEW Women’s World Title Eliminator Tournament filmed in Japan back in February, and has been at ringside for recent matches involving Emi Sakura, but this is her first AEW bout here in the United States. She will team with Sakura to face Riho and Ryo Mizunami tonight. You can see tweets from Suruga below.
