  • Rampage kicks off with Darby Allin vs. Sammy Guevara in the Grand Slam Tournament of Champions.
  • Sammy Guevara defeats Darby Allin to advance in the tournament. After trading suplexes, Guevara countered Darby’s suicide dive into a cutter in the early going. Sammy then missed a Shooting Star Press and Darby turned it into a Code Red. Sammy got blasted with Darby’s high speed suicide dive while making out with Tay Melo on the outside. Darby took off Guevara’s wedding ring. Sammy retrieved it after a distraction from Melo. Guevara landed the double springboard cutter for a near fall. Sammy missed a Coffin Drop. Darby tried for one of his own, but Anna Jay ran down and distracted the referee. Tay Melo interfered, allowing Sammy to hit a low blow and powerbomb Darby onto his skateboard. Sammy then hit his GTH for the pin fall victory.
  • Samoa Joe is in the ring with a mic. He apologizes for being away and says he owes the fans much more violence in the near future. He’s the ROH TV champ and open for business. Out comes Mark Sterling with Tony Nese and Josh Woods. Tony Nese has more abs than Joe has matches in AEW. Sterling says Woods deserves a title shot. Joe agrees and wants the match tonight. Sterling backs off and delays the match until next week on Rampage.
  • Miro cuts another promo about God, his wife, and lesser men battling for his title in the Grand Slam Tournament of Champions.
  • Serena Deeb defeats Madison Rayne. The was billed as the battle between Professor and Coach. Deeb taunted Rayne throughout the brief match, which gave Madison an opening for an offensive attack. But Deeb was too powerful for Rayne to handle. She captured Madison’s arm and leg in a submission and forced her to tap out.
  • Jade Cargill cuts a backstage promo bragging about her win over Athena at All Out. Jade confidently calls out any woman to step up and challenge her next.
  • Powerhouse Hobbs also cuts a backstage promo bragging about his win over Ricky Starks at All Out. He issues a general threat to everyone on the AEW roster.
  • Mark Henry interviews Claudio Castagnoli and Dax Harwood ahead of their main event match for the ROH world championship.
  • Claudio Castagnoli defeats Dax Harwood to retain the ROH world championship. Claudio takes over early on after Harwood endures a rough fall head-first onto the floor below when tossed into the ringpost. Dax fights back with repeated chops and follows up with a diving headbutt from the top rope. Harwood avoids the Neutralizer and hits his own piledriver on Claudio for a near fall. Claudio uppercuts his way back into control and lands a superplex for a near fall. Both men exchange blows in the middle of the ring. Dax catches Claudio into a slingshot Liger Bomb for another near fall. Dax follows up with German suplexes. Claudio counters a backdrop from the top rope into a crossbody, but Dax then rolls over on impact for another near fall. They trade uppercuts in the middle of the ring, with Claudio getting the better of it. Claudio executes the giant swing into the sharpshooter. Dax gets out of it and locks in his own sharpshooter. Claudio powers out and elbows Harwood’s head into oblivion. He sits back on another sharpshooter and Dax taps out.
  • Both men show each other respect after the match is over.
  • That’s the end of the show, folks!
