AEW RAMPAGE RESULTS FOR JAN. 7
- Rampage kicks off with Adam Cole vs. Jake Atlas. Chris Jericho is on the commentary team. It’s noted that Cole sits atop AEW’s rankings.
- A few minutes in, Cole tosses Jake’s hip into the ringpost on the outside, shaking him up. Later on after the commercial break, Atlas dives through the ropes onto Cole on the outside, showing off his aerial skills. The finish comes after Atlas seems to blow out his knee landing on a springboard jump. Cole immediately takes advantage with a kneebar to get the submission victory. Adam Cole defeats Jake Atlas.
- After the match, Orange Cassidy and the Best Friends run off the Cole, Bobby Fish, and Kyle O’Reilly before they can do further harm to Atlas.
- Cody Rhodes is not medically cleared to defend the TNT title at Battle of the Belts. Dustin Rhodes will take his place and face Sammy Guevara to crown an interim TNT champion.
- HOOK defeats Aaron Solo. HOOK was super over. He dumped Solo on his head with suplexes, brutalized him with crossfaces, and put him away with the Redrum submission.
- QT Marshall gets in HOOK’s face after the match is over. HOOK gives him a Tazplex too, much to the crowd’s delight.
- Tony Schiavone interviews Andrade El Idolo, who mocks the relationship between Darby Allin and Sting.
- Ricky Starks will defend the FTW title at Battle of the Belts against Matt Sydal. Starks talks trash on Dante Martin while making the announcement.
- Riho & Ruby Soho defeat Britt Baker & Jamie Hayter in a tag team match. Riho pins Hayter with a roll up for the win after Hayter accidentally strikes Baker. The commentators emphasize that Baker has never been able to pin Riho in AEW. Baker is upset with Hayter after the match and leaves the ring without her.
- Dan Lambert and Men of the Year cut a promo, shitting on Tony Khan’s terrible booking and saying they will keep a close eye on the Interim TNT championship match at Battle of the Belts.
- Mark Henry interviews the main event participants ahead of their match. Eddie Kingston, Santana, and Ortiz actually find the heels (Daniel Garcia & 2point0) and start the brawl right in the middle of the interview. Mark Henry astutely observes that it’s time for the main event.
- The action spills out to the ring and doesn’t let up for the entire duration. Kingston is hobbling around the ring late in the match and may be injured. Garcia cracks him in the head with the ring bell but Eddie breaks out of the pin attempt. Kingston is triple suplexed through a table on the outside. Santana gets his team back in the match by attacking the heels with a chair. Santana and Ortiz eventually score the win with a discus lariat on Jeff Parker. Santana, Ortiz, and Eddie Kingston defeat Daniel Garcia & 2point0.
- The bad guys are sore losers and attack the babyfaces after the match is over. They tape Eddie to the ring ropes. Chris Jericho throws down his headset and storms the ring for the save, and the heels run away as the show goes off the air.
