AEW RAMPAGE RESULTS FOR JAN. 14
- The opening match of the night is Adam Cole vs. Trent Beretta. Both men are accompanied to the ring by several allies.
- Cole targets Trent’s vulnerable neck in the early going with multiple neckbreakers. Cole goes for Panama Sunrise on the outside but Trent counters with a back body drop. Trent’s advantage doesn’t last for long, though, as he misses a spear and goes head first into the guard rail. Later in the match, Trent nails an avalanche brainbuster, but his neck spasms on impact and he can’t follow up with an effective pin attempt. Trent manages to blast Cole with a piledriver on the ring apron. Cole catches Trent with a Canadian Destroyer back inside the ring. Trent counters Panama Sunrise with Strong Zero, but Cole gets his foot on the rope to break up the pin. Madness ensues ringside with everyone’s allies brawling with each other. Cole sneaks in a low blow on Trent while the referee is distracted by the chaos, and then lowers the boom for the win. Adam Cole defeats Trent Beretta.
- Thunder Rosa and Mercedes Martinez talk trash towards each other in pre-taped promos.
- Shawn Spears vs. Andrew Everett is next. Spears taunts Everett with a subpar cartwheel in the opening seconds. Spears catches Everett in his finisher shortly thereafter. Shawn Spears defeats Andrew Everett.
- Spears cuts a promo in the ring after the match, with Wardlow standing behind him. Spears says Punk isn’t the best in the world, and Spears is going to cross the line with no apologies when he takes Punk out next week on Dynamite. One swing of the chair is all it will take to make sure Punk remembers him forever. The crowd chants for Wardlow, who Spears describes as a one move wonder who lacks experience.
- Now we get a diss track from The Acclaimed, trash talking Sting and Darby Allin.
- Rampage goes right into a trios match, with the entrances skipped. It’s Kris Statlander, Leyla Hirsch, and Red Velvet vs. The Bunny, Penelope Ford, and Nyla Rose.
- Hirsch works fine with Velvet to double team The Bunny, but she doesn’t want to tag in Statlander. Later in the match, Rose nails a chokeslam on Velvet, but misses with the follow-up senton splash. Velvet crawls to her corner and tags in Statlander. Kris lights up Ford with strikes and a torso buster. She bends Ford in half with a spider crab, but The Bunny saves her partner from the move. Statlander takes Bunny out with a Blue Thunder Bomb. She has the momentum, but Hirsch tags herself in. Some confusion ensues among the babyfaces, and Hirsch is rolled up for the loss. The Bunny, Penelope Ford, and Nyla Rose defeat Kris Statlander, Leyla Hirsch, and Red Velvet.
- Men of the Year cut a promo on Cody Rhodes and Sammy Guevara. Scorpio Sky wants the TNT title after Cody and Sammy unify the belts.
- Ricky Starks is on commentary and venting his spleen about Jay Lethal getting involved in his business on Dynamite. Lethal interrupts, gets in a few verbal jabs, and says he wants a shot at Ricky’s FTW title. Jay mocks Ricky for being subservient to Taz. Officials get in between both men before any punches are thrown, as Taz yells from the commentary table about how Lethal doesn’t deserve a shot at the FTW championship.
- Mark Henry interviews Dark Order and Jurassic Express ahead of their tag team championship main event match. Dark Order play kazoos to mock Christian.
- Late in the match, Luchasaurus tags in and goes after both John Silver and Alex Reynolds in separate corners. He chokeslams Silver onto Reynolds but it’s not enough to win the match. Jungle Boy tags in, eventually German suplexes Silver. All four guys are in the ring. They do some sort of tower of doom spot in the corner that wipes all four guys out. Dark Order takes the dinosaur out with superkicks. Reynolds with a jackknife on Jungle Boy for what was damn close to a three count. Jurassic Express double teams Silver right off the apron, leaving Reynolds alone in the ring. The champs execute their tandem offense to put him away. Jurassic Express defeats Dark Order.
- Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus, and Christian celebrate as the show goes off the air.
