After Dynamite this week, I whined a little bit about not getting more from gifted talkers Eddie Kingston & Miro ahead of their All Out TNT title clash. Tony Khan, or perhaps the champ’s vengeful God, heard my cries, and we got five minutes of dynamite on the Sept. 3 Rampage.
It was pretty much exactly what I wanted.
Miro’s lines weren’t quite as killer as some of his part promos. Notably missing was the horndog element where he references his hot/flexible/double-jointed wife. But we got plenty of Old Testament bluster about how Eddie dishonored the struggles of his past by accepting an AEW “charity” contract. This has made Kingston soft, which is disrespectful to Miro’s diety. That set up The Redeemer’s best line, where he called the Mad King “Jon Moxley’s bag boy.”
That brought Eddie in a DMX jersey to drop some profane bars. He told Miro he doesn’t believe in his “stupid god”, but if he does exist, he sent Kingston to punish the champ.
When Miro called Eddie to the ring for immediate redemption, the Mad King deliver a message that popped the Chicagoland crowd big time: “Redeemer. My man. Redeem DEEZ NUTS!”
The mind games continued in the physical confrontation that followed, with Kingston being the last man standing. I’m just glad these guys got more mic time.
Here are the highlights from Rampage:
- What did Eddie Kingston have to say to the TNT Champ Miro?
- Was Kris Statlander able to Rise to the Challenge and Overcome the Odds?
- What Went Down on the Last Stop Before All Out Between CM Punk and Darby Allin
