AEW RAMPAGE RESULTS FOR JUNE 3
- Rampage kicks off with Lucha Bros. vs Young Bucks. The commentators mention that CM Punk will address the AEW world championship and injury rumors later tonight.
- Late in the fight, Fenix stomps Nick into a Penta DDT on the outside of the ring. They do the same thing to Matt inside the ring, with the stomp from the top rope this time. Fenix hits a frog splash on Matt, but Matt kicks out of the pin attempt. Nick saves the day with a springboard dropkick, and Fenix takes a nasty bump on a poisonrana. Fenix recovers with a spinning back heel kick for Nick. Fenix climbs on top of Penta’s shoulders on the top rope for a huge splash on Matt. Nick superkicks Fenix. Matt tags in and the Bucks deliver a superkick party on the Lucha Bros. Bucks land the Meltzer Driver on Fenix, but Penta makes the save at the last second on the pin attempt. Matt yanks off Penta’s mask! Penta covers up and is superkicked. One BTE Trigger later for Fenix and the Young Bucks pick up the win. Young Bucks defeat Lucha Bros.
- Matt parades around the ring wearing Penta’s mask after the match.
- Next up is a tag team match: Powerhouse Hobbs & Ricky Starks vs. two jobbers. Jobber One is easily neutralized by Starks. Hobbs spinebusters Jobber Two for the win in the middle of an inset promo from Hobbs and Starks. Powerhouse Hobbs & Ricky Starks defeat two jobbers.
- The next match is Kiera Hogan vs. Athena. Hogan is accompanied to the ring by Jade Cargill, Red Velvet, and Stokely Hathaway. Athena takes Hogan out with a crossbody from the middle rope. Hogan escapes to the outside of the ring but Athena catches her there too with a diving elbow strike. Velvet trips Athena on the ring apron when the ref is distracted. Kiera comes in with a leaping leg drop on Athena as we go to break. Athena takes it to Hogan later in the fight with an explosive kick combination. Hogan manages to hit a running boot slide to Athena’s face in the corner. But Athena takes over and puts her away with the swan dive cutter from the top rope. Athena defeats Kiera Hogan.
- The House of Black inducts its newest member, Julia Hart.
- Out comes the AEW world champion, CM Punk. He’s teary-eyed in the ring. The fans deserve an explanation for what’s going on. When Punk returned to wrestling, he said he would keep going until the wheels fell off. He hopes thus far the fans have not been disappointed with him during his time in AEW. It was a gift to have this time back in the ring with the fans. The bad news is that CM Punk is injured and needs surgery. A couple things are broken, including his heart, because he wanted to go on a hell of a run for the fans. The good news is the wheels haven’t fallen off, but one of them is broken. This is a bump in the road. It hurts like hell. He wants to wrestle right now. But he can’t, and he doesn’t want to hold this place up. There are plenty of guys in the back who can fill his shoes like Moxley and Danielson. The get back is gonna be bigger than the setback. He will come back bigger, faster, stronger, hungrier than ever before, and prove why he is the best in the world.
- Chris Jericho said multiple times on commentary that Punk was relinquishing the title. A few minutes later, commentary corrected themselves. Punk is not vacating the title. An interim champion will be crowned at Forbidden Door on June 26. There will be a Battle Royal to kick off Dynamite next week. The winner of that match faces Jon Moxley in the main event of Dynamite. The winner of that match goes to Forbidden Door in the match to crown an interim champ. The interim champ will then face CM Punk to unify the titles when he is back from injury.
- Scorpio Sky defeats Dante Martin to retain the TNT championship.
