GCW and MLW star Mance Warner made his AEW debut against Serpentico on AEW "Dark: Elevation." It was filmed before the August 3 edition of AEW "Dynamite."

The "Dark: Elevation" episode is airing today instead of next Monday.

Warner is also set to face AEW Interim World Champion Jon Moxley this Friday on AEW "Rampage" in an AEW interim World Championship Eliminator Match.

According to Fightful Select, it has been confirmed that Warner has not been under a Major League Wrestling contract since his return back in June. He is still scheduled for his MLW dates.

Warner's first MLW stint was from 2019 until 2021. In October 2020, Warner had requested his release from MLW, but it was denied. His then-last match was at the AAA X MLW event in March 2020 in Mexico, where he teamed with Savio Vega to face Mortiz and Pagano. After his release, he primarily wrestled for Game Changer Wrestling.

Warner made his MLW return this year for "Battle Riot IV." He was part of the 40-man Battle Riot match. that also included Killer Kross, Sami Callihan, Parker Boudreaux, Gangrel, and Homicide.

Last Sunday at "Ric Flair's Last Match," Warner won the Bunkhouse Battle Royale.
