Well, raise ‘em high and string ‘em up, we’ve gotcha, now you’re good as dead. From the gallows to your grave, it’s gonna take your life away. Crime they say, does not pay, and you’re the living proof, but me? I’m just liveblogging this here pro wrestling show with my wife and both of my lovely girlfriends at my side.
We go live in the ring with Tony Schiavone and Dante Martin.
Tony talks about how Lio Rush couldn’t be on Rampage last night because his grandmother passed and says Team Taz has offered Dante a spot.
Martin says he’s had just under 24 hours to think about it—
Enter the Acclaimed, trying to recruit Dante and riffing on the number of times Lio Rush has retired. Anthony Bowens starts to run down the list of potential alliances when a “shut the fuck up” chant goes up in the crowd. He says he will not and pitches Martin on joining the Acclaimed.
But he wants to make himself clear, if he’s not with them, he’s against them, and they’ll send him home crying. Dante pops him on... BRILLO MARTIN TAKES THE HEELS OUT!

Tony Schiavone is backstage with Best Friends to interview Orange Cassidy.
Tony tells us that Butcher and the Blade will wrestle Orange and a partner of his choose on Dynamite. Cassidy says he could pick one of his friends here but they’re working hard and he’s giving them the night off, so he looked up who all is in CHAOS on Ask Jeeves and he might have to bring one of his dogs instead.

Dragon suplex follows, looking for another, Hangman blocks it at first but the second try goes through! To the apron, Kenny completes the trifecta with a Dragon suplex on the apron! V-Trigger in the ropes, electric chair, reversed into a victory roll... SO CLOSE! Duck a lariat, release German suplex, thinking Deadeye but Omega reverses to the Jay Driller... NOT ENOUGH!
Punching away, biting Adam’s forehead to open the wound back up, and Page bites him right back in the turnbuckles! Perching up top... MOONSAULT FALLAWAY SLAM CAN’T KEEP KENNY OMEGA DOWN! Kenny goes to the floor, Hangman goes up top and peels the turnbuckle cam off so he can perch on the post... DIVE FROM THE POST THROUGH THE TIMEKEEPER’S TABLE!
Omega dazed in the middle of the ring, Page is ready to hit Buckshot when he crumbles to his knees! He heads inside, finger guns, V-Trigger denied, Dragon suplex denied, off the ropes, rolling elbow, off the ropes, pop-up powerbomb! To the apron, Buckshot but Omega pulls referee Paul Turner in the way and he takes the whole lariat!
Don Callis slides in the ring with the title belt but Hangman turns around before he can hit him with it! He knocks Don down with a punch, Kenny has the belt, Page ducks... DEADEYE! REFEREE AUBREY EDWARDS RUNS DOWN TO COUNT IT BUT OMEGA KICKS OUT!
Hangman picks the title up briefly and drops it, Kenny with punches, Adam fires his own right back, pump kick, more right hands form the champion, knocking Page to his knees! V-Trigger, another one, off the ropes for a third but Hangman grabs the knee! Palm strikes, but another V-Trigger cutsh im off in the ropes!
Page with a rolling elbow, another V-Trigger, both men running low, Omega with Kawada kicks but Page fires up and lays him out with a lariat! The Young Bucks make their way down, Kenny with headbutts... BACKDROP DRIVER! But Page pops right back up and hits a Backdrop Driver of his own!
To the apron, big boot, Buckshot... COUNTERED WITH A V-TRIGGER! Slip out of the electric chair... PAGE HITS HIS OWN ONE-WINGED ANGEL FOR A NEARFALL! Nick Jackson advances but Buckshot connects to the back of the head and Kenny is staggered! Matt Jackson around the other side, he nods at Page... BUCKSHOT! IT’S OVER!
“Hangman” Adam Page wins by pinfall with Buckshot to become the new AEW World Champion.
Post-match, Hangman celebrates with the title.
The Dark Order come to the stage to cheer him on and he calls them into the ring!
They all hug and then life Page up on their shoulders!
That’s the show, folks.
