AEW Rampage

Here’s a place to check results and comment along with a new episode of AEW Rampage, airing tonight at 10 pm ET on TNT.

The latest edition of AEW’s Friday night show is a two hour special that comes our way on tape from Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York City (spoilers are here, if you’re interested - and if you are and chose to discuss them in the comments, please use the spoiler tag).

This week's episode features CM Punk vs. Powerhouse Hobbs, Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston vs. Minoru Suzuki & Lance Archer in a Lights Out match, Super Kliq vs. Christian & Jurassic Express, Chris Jericho & Jake Hager vs. Men of the Year, and more!

Come right back here at 10 pm ET when Rampage kicks off on TNT. We’ll update the post with everything that happens on the show below the line.

REMINDER: Please keep GIFs and pics to a minimum. They slow down updates and refreshes for some of your fellow community members.

Enjoy the show!


  • We’re back in Arthur Ashe, and Excalibur runs down the card. He’s joined by Taz & Ricky Starks on commentary.
  • CM Punk def. Powerhouse Hobbs via pinfall after Go To Sleep. Punk in control until Hook draws his attention and Hobbs catches him with a crossbody. They trade big moves in the second half of the match, with Hobbs countered a GTS into a spinebuster being a highlight & a gnarly looking hurricanrana from Punk a notable “oh $#!+” moment. Another attempted Hook intervention leads to the finish, when Punk dodges his attempt to grab him and Hobbs crashes into his Team Taz partner instead.
  • The Super Kliq (Adam Cole & The Young Bucks) def. Christian Cage & Jurassic Express via pinfall. Cage & Jungle Boy cruise early until Cole lures JB to the floor and into a pair of superkicks from Matt & Nick. The second half is the madness you’d expect given the participants. The finish comes after The Bucks throw Christian & Jungle Boy off the ramp to isolate Luchasaurus. He takes Panama Sunrise, the BTE Trigger, and The Boom (the new name for Cole’s Last Shot running knee).
  • Men of the Year (Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky) def. Chris Jericho & Jake Hager via pinfall. The faces had the heels in their submission holds, but Dan Lambert jumped on the apron and drew their attention. Lambert tripped up Hager which allowed Sky to roll him up.
  • Afterwards, Jericho & Hager drag Lambert into the ring and look to make him pay, but American Top Team is out to surround the ring. In the ensuing melee, Andrei Arlovski & Junior Dos Santos brawl with Jericho & Hager, Paige Van Zant works Jericho over with punches to the mid-section (after cocking her fist like Roman Reigns), then Jorge Masvidal recreates the knee that knocked out Ben Askren on Le Champion.
  • Lucha Bros & Santana and Ortiz def. Private Party, The Butcher & The Blade via pinfall. This was a crazy sprint that ended after Santana dodged a Shooting Star Press from Marq Quen, Lucha Bros hit him with Fear Factory, then PnP finished him with Street Sweeper so Santana could cover him.
  • A backstage spot with Matt Hardy & Jack Evans includes Hardy challenging Orange Cassidy to a hair vs. hair match... against Evans. During the eight-man, OC came out and superman punched Jack on the ramp.
  • Sammy Guevara and Fuego Del Sol hit the stage for Sammy’s cue card schtick. Miro walks up behind them and destroys them both. Fuego gets thrown off the stage, and Guevara ends up passing out in Game Over.
  • Andrade El Idolo gets a video to say he wants another match against PAC now that he’s dealt with Chavo Guerrero and made sure his assistant Jose knows not to get involved in his matches. When Andrade wins this time, PAC won’t have any excuses.
  • Penelope Ford def. Anna Jay via pinfall. The Bunny distracted the referee to throw Ford the brass knuckles.
  • Tay Conti ran in to save her friend after the pin, but she also took a brass knuckle shot. The Hardy Family Office came out to celebrate, then Orange Cassidy showed up on stage with Kris Statlander. They were soon joined by Dark Order. The faces clear the ring, and it looks like Dark Order have mended fences... but Evil Uno isn’t ready to. He and Stu Grayson leave on their own.
  • Mark Henry interviews our main eventers. Lance Archer starts to talk about how Jon Moxley had home field advantage for his singles match with Minoru Suzuki in Cincinatti. Eddie Kingston is too worked up; Henry wraps it up.
  • Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston def. Minoru Suzuki & Lance Archer via pinfall in a Lights Out match. Suzuki & Archer jump their opponents during their entrance, cutting off “Wild Thing” (#TheMoxleyIncident). Kendo sticks, trash cans, and all the weapons you’d expect in an unsanctioned match. Kingston gets neutralized by being booted through a table. Mox gets his hands duct taped behind his back. Eddie recovers but the numbers game is too much for him. Suzuki Gun sets him up for Blackout onto the backs of two chairs, but Homicide’s music hits! He takes out Suzuki & Archer, then cuts Mox free. Paradigm Shifts for everyone, Homicide throws Eddie a trash can he puts over Archer’s head so he can light it up with a kendo stick. Kingston pins the Murderhawk Monster while Moxley & Suzuki brawl on the outside. The show closes with Mox, Eddie & Homicide hugging in the corner of the ring.
