AEW RAMPAGE RESULTS FOR MAY 27
- Rampage kicks off with Matt Sydal vs. Bryan Danielson. After going back and forth a bit early on, Danielson takes Sydal down with a full nelson. He lands a few uppercuts and then wraps up Sydal, violently clawing at his face and smashing him in the back of the head. Later in the fight, Sydal lands on his feet out of a snapmare and hits a rising knee strike on Bryan. Sydal takes him down with a Hurricanrana but Bryan breaks out of the pin attempt. Sydal lands the meteora from the top rope, but Bryan rolls over and turns it into a single leg crab. Matt works his way over to the rope to break Bryan’s grip. Danielson follows up with vicious kicks to the chest. Danielson looks for a backdrop from the middle rope, but Sydal reverses it into a sunset flip powerbomb for a near fall. Danielson recovers and surprises Sydal with the running knee strike. He elbow smashes Sydal and then chokes him out for the win. Bryan Danielson defeats Matt Sydal.
- There’s a quick recap video of the Hook / Danhausen storyline.
- The Young Bucks come out doing a parody of the Hardys, accompanied by Gangrel. There are also Matt Facts showing up on the screen during their entrance. They are fighting two jobbers. Nick Jackson is recreating Jeff Hardy’s moves in the ring. Matt Jackson lands the Twist of Fate. Nick goes up top for the Swanton Bomb and the win. Young Bucks defeat two jobbers.
- Gangrel tries to take center stage after the match, so the Bucks attack him. They go to finish him off with the BTE Trigger. The actual Hardys come out for the save. The Bucks escape, leaving Brandin Cutler there to get impaled by Gangrel and finished off by the Twist of Fate / Swanton combo from the Hardys.
- Darby Allin challenges Kyle O’Reilly to a match at Double or Nothing. If KOR doesn’t accept, he’ll interfere in Adam Cole and the Young Bucks’ matches and ruin their nights.
- Max Caster vs. Dante Martin is next. The Ass Boys, Billy Gunn, and Anthony Bowens in a wheelchair accompany Caster to the ring for his rap. Bowens tries to lead the crowd in an Ass Boys chant. Dante splashes them in the middle of it to break up the scene. The referee ejects everyone from ringside after Dante is jumped by the Gunns. Without the heels around to help Max, Dante Martin was able to beat him clean. Dante Martin defeats Max Caster.
- Adam Cole vows to beat Samoa Joe and win the Owen Hart Foundation tournament.
- Dan Lambert and Men of the Year are in the ring. Lambert and Ethan Page reveal a new purple and gold TNT title to give to Scorpio Sky. Sammy Guevara, Tay Conti, and Frankie Kazarian appear on the big screen. They are breaking into American Top Team’s building, going right to Dan Lambert’s trophy case of a ridiculous number of championship belts. They ransack the place and steal some UFC titles and the BMF title. Back in the ring, Scorpio Sky agrees to a mixed trios match at Double or Nothing: Sky, Page, and Paige VanZant vs. Guevara, Kazarian, and Conti. If the heels win, Guevara and Kazarian can never challenge for the TNT title again.
- Mark Henry interviews Ruby Soho and Kris Statlander ahead of their Owen Hart Foundation tournament semifinal match, coming up next in the main event. Soho was the hopefuly babyface, while Statlander had a much sharper edge in her tone and demeanor. She’s been in AEW from the beginning with nothing to show for it other than a blown out knee and being a replacement in this tournament. She’s not in the mood to take it easy on her friend in this match.
- At one point in the early going, Ruby showed some hesitancy to be unleash a fully powered strike on Statlander. Later in the fight, Kris charges Ruby in the corner but she sidesteps it. Statlander hurts her shoulder running into the buckle. Soho nails Kris with a Hurricanrana on the outside. Soho gets her back in the ring and locks in a kimura lock. Statlander forces a break by getting to the rope. Kris overpowers Ruby with a wheelbarrow suplex. Kris gets a near fall that the audience thought was a three count. Soho kicks away at Statlander’s weak shoulder and rolls her up for the win. Ruby Soho defeats Kris Statlander and advances to the finals of the Owen Hart Foundation tournament.
- Britt Baker comes out after the match with a mic. Soho cuts her off right away and says nobody wants to hear from her. The crowd is booing Ruby. Soho vows to hurt Baker at Double or Nothing. Britt has a receipt coming her away going back to Dynamite Grand Slam, and Ruby is cashing in at Double or Nothing.
- That’s the end of the show, folks!
