AEW RAMPAGE & BATTLE OF THE BELTS IV RESULTS FOR OCT. 7
- Rampage kicks off with Blackpool Combat Club (Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli, Wheeler Yuta) vs. RUSH & Private Party. The Firm is watching ringside.
- Blackpool Combat Club defeats RUSH & Private Party. Marq Quen did a 450 splash during a commercial break. Outside of that, this was an impressive display of babyface prowess, highlighted by Claudio executing the giant swing on Kassidy while having Quen draped over his shoulders. Moxley took out RUSH on the outside with a suicide dive, Claudio blocked the Silly String with his raw power, leaving Wheeler in the ring to lock in an arm scissors submission on Quen for the victory.
- Tony Nese & Josh Woods defeat Varsity Blondes. The heels put the babyfaces away very quickly with an Olympic slam into a neckbreaker combo. Arn Anderson looked on from the back, disappointed in the outcome.
- Mark Sterling grabs a mic afterwards and said he trademarked the term “Varsity” in professional wrestling. He gives Woods & Nese the name “Varsity Athletes” and says Brian Pillman Jr. and Griff Garrison are never allowed to use the word “Varsity” again or he’ll sue them. Sterling complains about being scissored on Dynamite. Out come The Acclaimed and Daddy Ass. Caster does his typical rap. Scissor me, Daddy Ass! The heels leave the ring while the scissoring party commences.
- Eddie Kingston isn’t happy about Senior Official Paul Turner reversing his win over Sammy Guevara from a couple weeks ago.
- Tay Melo & Anna Jay defeat Madison Rayne & Skye Blue. Blue avoided Anna Jay’s first Queen Slayer attempt, but Melo kicked her upside the head and she couldn’t escape the next Queen Slayer attempt. Jay gets the submission win.
- Mark Henry interviews Dark Order and Death Triangle ahead of their Trios championship main event match. Dark Order is determined to bring home the gold on the second anniversary of Brodie Lee’s last match in AEW.
- Death Triangle defeat Dark Order to retain the AEW world trios championships. 10 came in with a hot tag late in the match, running over all of the heels. PAC slowed him down with double sledgehammers to the back of the head. JR shits on the referee for allowing three Death Triangle members to beat up 10 in the ring. Silver tags in and goes at it with PAC. Silver gets a near fall with a dead fall brainbuster. The fans chant “Brodie” while the babyfaces take over. Fenix gets caught in a pendulum bomb but kicks out of the pin attempt. Penta tags in and hits a couple Slingblades. He suddenly gets triple teamed and blasted with Brodie’s discus lariat from 10. RUSH comes out and gives PAC the time keeper’s hammer. PAC smashes Reynolds with it. PAC locks in his Brutalizer submission for the win.
- That’s the end of Rampage. Battle of the Belts IV now begins with PAC staying in the ring to defend his All-Atlantic championship against Trent Beretta.
- PAC defeats Trent Beretta to retain the All-Atlantic championship. The highlight here was an exhausted PAC driving Trent through a table on the outside with a brainbuster. Trent’s neck impacted near the leg of the table. PAC rolled him back in the ring for the Black Arrow, but Trent got his knees up. PAC locked in the Brutalizer later on, but Trent leverages his hips to prevent PAC from controlling him on the mat. He reaches the ropes to break the hold. Trent lifts PAC up for a back suplex, but PAC grabs the hammer and spikes Trent with it, undetected by the referee. That was enough to get the pin and retain the title.
- Orange Cassidy comes out afterwards and chases PAC out of the ring.
- Chris Jericho, Matt Menard, and Angelo Parker are interviewed backstage and say it’s time for Daniel Garcia to come back home to JAS. Jericho is bringing his Lionheart persona to defeat Bryan Danielson in next week’s ROH world championship match on Dynamite.
- Claudio Castagnoli says he’ll be waiting next for whoever wins the ROH world title match between Jericho and Danielson.
- Jade Cargill defeats Willow Nightingale to retain the TBS championship. The crowd loves Willow. She takes nails the Baddies on the outside with a dive through the ropes, but Cargill dodges the bullet. Jade picks Willow up and drops her right on the ring steps. Nightingale came back with clotheslines and more offense, but Jade catches her in a slam. She then puts Willow away with Jaded.
- Vickie Guerrero comes out with her “Excuse me!” gimmick. Jade is distracted, allowing Nyla Rose to show up and steal the TBS title. She runs away with it like a thief.
- Matt Hardy, Ethan Page, and Stokely Hathaway argue about contract tampering backstage. Matt threatens to delete them.
- HOOK is interviewed about what was inside the Trustbuster’s envelope. He pulls out the unopened envelope, rips it in half, and walks off.
- FTR defeat Gates of Agony to retain the ROH world tag team titles. FTR hit the Big Rig late in the match, but they couldn’t get the pin due to a managerial distraction. No biggie, Cash Wheeler follows up with a backslide for the win.
- Brian Cage and The Embassy run out to help Gates of Agony beat up FTR after the match. Wardlow comes out for the save. The numbers are still too much, so out comes Samoa Joe. Joe cleans house and clears the ring. WarJoe and FTR stand tall to end the night.
