AEW taped matches for “Dark: Elevation” ahead of this week’s live episode of “AEW Dynamite” at the MVP Arena in Albany, NY. During the taping, a former WWE 24/7 Champion made his debut.
According to pwinsiderMascara Dorada (FKA Gran Metallic in WWE) defeated Serpentico in a singles match after hitting a superkick and a Dorada Driver.
Dorada and fellow Lucha House Party teammate, Lince Dorado, were among 18 WWE Superstars released from their contracts on November 4, 2021. Following the end of his 90-day non-compete segment, Dorada made his in-ring return to GCW. Show back in February. Soon after, he defeated Joey Janella at the GCW Believe Me event, before becoming a mainstay on the “NJPW Strong” brand. Dorada made a one-time appearance for Impact Wrestling last month, defeating Alex Zayne in a singles match.
During his five-year stint in WWE, Dorada notably made it to the finals of the first Cruiserweight Classic tournament, where he lost to TJ Perkins in the final. After wrestling for a few years as a singles competitor in the “WWE Raw” cruiserweight division, Dorado would join fellow Luchadores, Kalisto and Lais Dorado, to form the Lucha House Party. While the faction initially wrestled on the “205 Live” brand, they eventually became a fixture on WWE’s main roster shows.
Some of the other matches AEW taped for “Dark: Elevation” this week include Nayla Rose vs. Rebecca Scott, Jack Clayton vs. Conan Lycan, and Frankie Kazarian vs. Zora Johl. ROH Six Man Tag Team Champions Dalton Castle and The Boyz also appeared in action. can be full spoilers found here,
