Enjoy the show!


  • Rampage kicks off with Sting & Darby Allin vs. House of Black (Brody King & Buddy Matthews) in a No Disqualification match.
  • Sting & Darby Allin defeat House of Black. The heels had the advantage when Sting was pushed off the rope and through a table on the outside. Julia Hart handcuffed Sting’s hands behind his back. Darby did an insane Coffin Drop onto Buddy from high up on some structure near the entrance ramp. Brody and Darby went crashing through a table together, taking each other out. Matthews got back into the ring and grabbed Sting’s baseball bat. Sting was still handcuffed in the ring but laughing like a maniac. Just as Buddy was about to strike, the lights went out. Out comes The Great Muta! He spit the green mist in Buddy’s face. Sting breaks free of the cuffs and puts Buddy away with the Scorpion Death Drop.
  • Sting and Muta hug after the match.
  • HOOK & Action Bronson defeat Matt Menard & Angelo Parker. Bronson performed HOOK’s theme song live during their entrance. Actionwasn’t taking any bumps, so HOOK did all the selling for his team. Bronson’s offense mostly consisted of running shoulder tackles, with a clothesline and body slam mixed in. HOOK and Brosnon win with stereo Redrum submissions on Menard & Parker.
  • Wardlow & Samoa Joe defeat Tony Nese & Josh Woods. Wardlow dominated Woods in the early going, but appeared to hurt his knee when both men spilled to the outside. Samoa Joe then took care of Tony Nese for the Muscle Buster finish.
  • The heels attack Joe after the match. Wardlow gets back in the ring to make the save. Mark Sterling tries to attack him from behind, but to no avail. Joe feeds Sterling right into Wardlow’s powerbomb symphony.
  • Jungle Boy defeats Rey Fenix. These guys fought through multiple commercial breaks. In the final portion of the bout, Fenix tried landing the Three Amigos suplex series, but Jungle countered the third one. Fenix came back with a Frog Splash, but he was too exhausted to capitalize for a timely pin attempt. Rey got him up in the air with a power move in mind, but Boy rolled down and trapped Rey in a small package for the win.
  • Christian came out during Jungle’s celebration. As Boy was distracted by his presence, Luchasaurus ambushed him from behind. Christian grabbed the mic and talked shit on the NYC crowd. He focuses on Boy and brags about squashing him at All Out. He said even though Jungle took out his right arm, Luchasaurus is his right hand of destruction. Christian orders Luchasaurus to end Jungle Boy right now. That leads to a thunderous chokeslam.
  • There is going to be a Jericho Appreciation Championship Celebration next week on Dynamite. Chris Jericho explains to Daniel Garcia that they are both champions, so it’s for both of them.
  • Sammy Guevara defeats Eddie Kingston by referee decision reversal. Guevara apologized to Kingston before the bell for not calling him a fat piece of shit sooner. The finish of the match included Eddie putting Sammy down with three consecutive spinning backfists. He locked Sammy’s limp body in the Stretch Plum and the match was called for Kingston. However, Eddie was unhinged and refused to break the hold despite the pleas of AEW officials. As a result, Senior Official Paul Turner decided to revere the decision in Sammy’s favor. Eddie snapped and attacked the security in the ring. Jerry Lynn tried talking sense into him.
  • Jade Cargill defeats Diamante to retain the TBS championship. It didn’t take long for Cargill to use Jaded to pick up the win and improve her record to 38-0. Trina enters the ring and slaps Diamante down to the mat. She shakes Cargill’s hand and celebrates with her.
  • Hangman Page wins the Golden Ticket Battle Royal. Page was up against it early on when he was ambushed during his entrance by The Butcher, The Blade, and RUSH. The Dark Order ran out to even things up. The ring was filled and the match officially began after a commercial break. Danhausen tried to curse QT Marshall and then teamed up with Hangman to eliminate him. The Best Friends worked together to get rid of Jake Hager. Dalton Castle was saved from elimination by The Boys, and then used his second chance to eliminate Brian Cage. Castle was tossed out by Daniel Garcia shortly thereafter. Lance Archer took out Trent Beretta. The Butcher and The Blade tried to eliminate Private Party, but Matt Hardy came to their defense. Hardy tossed out The Blade. The Butcher and RUSH then got rid of Hardy, Party, and Evil Uno. Hangman got involved and got rid of Butcher. RUSH tossed out John Silver. Penta and Archer went at it, leading to Archer’s elimination. Penta tossed out Jay Lethal, but Satnam Singh caught him and put him back in the ring. Penta was then eliminated after Lethal Injection. Hangman tosses Lethal out over the rope away from Singh to get rid of him. Page and RUSH are the final two men left. Hangman saved himself from near elimination on the ring apron and then hit RUSH with Dead Eye to eliminate him and win.
  • Ricky Starks defeats Powerhouse Hobbs in a Lights Out match. Hobbs took the advantage late with a low blow to prevent Starks from landing a chair shot. Starks comes back with a low blow of his own. Starks is backdropped onto the edge of two chairs set up back-to-back with a violent impact. Hobbs powerbombs Starks onto a couple chairs for a near fall. Hobbs rips off a light fixture from the stage set, looking to use it as a weapon. He swings and misses, and Starks comes right back by spearing him through a table in the corner. Starks cracks Hobbs’ skull with the light fixture and follows up with Roshambo for the win.
  • That’s the end of the show, folks!
