AEW Dark: Elevation, or Dark: Elevation or simply Elevation, is a professional wrestling streaming television program. It is produced by the American promotion All Elite Wrestling (AEW) and airs on AEW's YouTube channel on Monday nights at 7pm ET. The program is a spinoff of Dark that broadcast matches taped before and after the preceding episode of AEW's flagship program, Dynamite, and features up and rising talent in AEW, as well as wrestlers from the independent circuit.


On October 2, 2019, All Elite Wrestling's (AEW) flagship program, Dynamite, premiered on TNT. During the event, there were four dark matches, two before and two after the live broadcast. A program entitled Dark, which began airing on AEW's YouTube channel on Tuesday, October 8, would showcase these dark matches. Unlike the dark matches of other wrestling promotions, which generally do not affect storylines, the matches featured on Dark are part of AEW's storylines and count towards the wrestlers' match statistics.

On February 24, 2021, AEW announced that a new spinoff of Dark would premiere on Monday, March 15 titled AEW Dark: Elevation. The promotion's third weekly program, it was announced that it would stream on Monday nights at 7pm ET on AEW's YouTube channel. It was also announced that Elevation would feature the promotion's established and rising stars, as well as top wrestlers from the independent circuit. Like Dark, matches on the new program maintain storyline continuity and match statistics with AEW's other programming. Wrestling veteran Paul Wight, formerly known as the Big Show in WWE, was announced to be doing commentary for Elevation alongside Tony Schiavone after he was signed. With the premiere of Rampage on August 13, 2021, which also airs on TNT, AEW President and Chief Executive Officer Tony Khan said that Dynamite and Rampage would be AEW's core properties, while their YouTube shows, Dark and Elevation, would be their peripheral properties, essentially their developmental shows.


The wrestlers featured on All Elite Wrestling take part in scripted feuds and storylines. Wrestlers are portrayed as heroes, villains, or less distinguishable characters in scripted events that build tension and culminate in a wrestling match or series of matches.
