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.

Enjoy the show!


  • Jim Ross once again welcomes us to AEW Dynamite even though this is AEW Rampage.
  • The action starts out in the backstage area, with Ricky Starks and Lance Archer brawling. They throw each other into various objects while slowly making their way towards the ring. Archer leaps over the barricade to smash Starks, dumps him into the ring, and the bell rings to officially start their first round match in the AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament.
  • Ricky Starks defeats Lance Archer to advance in the AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament. Archer gained the early advantage with a chokeslam on the ring apron. Starks punches his way out of a Black Out attempt. A diving shoulder tackle isn’t enough to take Lance off his feet, but a follow-up lariat gets the job done. The Murderhawk Monster comes back with his own lariat for a very near fall. Starks counters the next lariat and turns it into a tornado DDT for a near fall. Starks dodges some punches, and lands a running spear into a roll up for the victory.
  • After the match is over, Archer attacks Starks and chokeslams him onto the steel steps.
  • A quick video airs hyping up Jon Moxley vs. MJF for tomorrow night at Full Gear.
  • Tony Schiavone interviewed Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara earlier today. Jericho knows that Bryan Danielson and Claudio Castagnoli will implode at Full Gear in their four way match for the ROH world championship. Chris vows to walk out as the champ, but after he leaves the interview, Guevara says we’ll see about that.
  • HOOK defeats Lee Moriarty to retain the FTW championship. HOOK goes for a knee bar but Lee escapes his grip. HOOK takes him down again and wraps him up, but Lee elbows his way out of it. HOOK counters Moriarty and slams him down to the mat. A distraction from Stokely Hathaway leads to HOOK eating a boot from Lee. HOOK counters a crossface and takes Moriarty down with a lariat. He batters Lee with body blows and nails a fisherman throw. Lee rams HOOK’s face into the buckle and then hits a jumping knee strike. Lee gets upset with the referee and takes his attention off HOOK. Moriarty goes for another submission, but HOOK counters it into Redrum for the victory and 16-0 undefeated record.
  • Tony Schiavone interviews RUSH, Jose the Assistant, John Silver, and 10 of the Dark Order. Silver talks trash on RUSH and Jose, but 10 isn’t feeling it and walks away.
  • Athena defeats Madison Rayne. Athena shows off her newfound aggression, dropkicking Rayne while she was posing at the end of her entrance. Rayne gets a brief flurry of offense, but Athena quickly nails her with a flipping stunner. Athena takes the win from there.
  • After the match is over, Athena continues her assault on Rayne. Referee Aubrey Edwards tries to intervene, but Athena strikes her down too. ROH Women’s Champion Mercedes Martinez returns, leading to Athena’s retreat.
  • A 5 vs. 5 match is set up for Full Gear pre-show between The Best Friends and The Factory.
  • A new video airs for the return of the House of Black.
  • Mark Henry interviews Ortiz & Eddie Kingston and Konosuke Takeshita & Jun Akiyama ahead of their tag team match in the main event, which is up next. Kingston and Akiyama say nothing while their partners do all the talking.
  • Jun Akiyama & Konosuke Takeshita defeat Eddie Kingston & Ortiz. Kingston calls out Akiyama right away but gets Takeshita instead. Akiyama eventually gets in there and piledrives Ortiz. It’s back to Kingston vs. Takeshita in the ring after a commercial break. Ortiz and Eddie double team him with no response from Akiyama. Kingston and Takeshita take turns chopping each other, then trade elbow strikes. Both men tag out. Akiyama takes Ortiz out with a jumping knee. Kingston prevents Akiyama from hitting an exploder. Eddie and Jun go at it with chops. Takeshita is hit with a backdrop driver by Kingston, and all four men are down. Eddie and Jun trading blows again. They trade exploders too. Jun takes him out with a knee to the face. Akiyama follows up with a running knee to the back of Ortiz. One exploder later, and Akiyama gets the pin fall for his team.
  • That’s the end of the show, folks.
