Enjoy the show!


  • Rampage kicks off with Mistico vs. Rocky Romero in a 2-out-of-3 falls match for Mexico’s Pound-for-Pound Crown.
  • Mistico defeats Rocky Romero. Mistico gets a quick tap out win in the first fall by tying Rocky up on the mat and wrenching his body over his knee. Rocky tears at Mistico’s mask early in the second fall, getting lots of boos as we go to the first commercial break. Romero hits a snap suplex on the apron and blasts Mistico with then a suicide dive through the ropes. Romero wins the second fall with the Sliced Bread, and that’s immediately followed by another commercial break. Mistico takes flight to the outside and connects on Rocky, rolling him back in the ring for a near fall. Romero elbows his way out of an avalanche German suplex and turns it into an avalanche Sliced Bread, but Mistico kicks out at two! Mistico catches Rocky with a Spanish Fly but it’s not enough to keep him down for three. Mistico plants him with a Destroyer and then locks in La Mistica for the tap out win in fall three.
  • Stokely Hathaway is backstage with Jay Lethal, Eddie Kingston, and the entire Jarrett crew. Lethal talks smack on Eddie, saying he doesn’t really care about the ROH world title. Lethal talks shit about Homicide and says Eddie will never be like him, and Jay demands a title shot. Stokely books Jeff Jarrett vs. Eddie Kingston in a Memphis Street Fight on tomorrow’s Collision, and if Jarrett wins, Lethal gets his title match. Eddie gets in Jeff’s face and calls him a hillbilly bitch.
  • John Silver defeats Kip Sabian and Brother Zay in a triple threat match to earn an AEW International title match against Orange Cassidy at Battle of the Belts VIII. The Hardys were not with Zay, while Sabian and Silver had their allies ringside. Zay is hot coming out of a commercial break, landing a moonsault to the outside on Silver and following up with a stunner voer the ropes on Sabian inside. Silver gets back in there and launches Sabian head-first into Zay’s crotch. Silver and Sabian’s allies get heated with each other at ringside, so Zay dives onto all of them. Zay hits a Swanton on Sabian and goes for the pin. Silver knocks out Zay with a kick to the head during the pin attempt, and then pins Zay himself for the win.
  • We get a pre-taped promo package with Mike Santana and Ortiz talking shit about each other. They will fight next week om Rampage in Philadelphia.
  • Wheeler Yuta & Claudio Castagnoli defeat Bryan Keith & Exodus Prime. Keith gets a few blows in on Yuta, but Prime tags in and gets completely demolished. Claudio puts on the Giant Swing and Yuta dropkicks Exodus in the head after 10 revolutions. Claudio launches Yuta off the top rope onto Prime for the three count.
  • Renee Paquette interviews the former Jericho Appreciation Society backstage. Daddy Magic and Daniel Garcia continue their bickering. The rest of the members intervene and tell them to get on the same page and squash this already. Magic and Garcia shake hands and say they will win the AEW trios title at Battle of the Belts.
  • Hangman Page and the Young Bucks will defend the ROH world six-man tag titles in an open challenge on Dynamite.
  • Tony Khan’s dream match for tomorrow’s Collision is Bryan Danielson vs. Andrade.
  • Ruby Soho defeats Skye Blue. The finish saw Saraya get involved from ringside, tripping Skye up as she was running the ropes. Blue recovered and powerbombed Ruby off the turnbuckle. Saraya got on the apron and took a swing at Blue but missed. Skye knocked her off but turned around into Ruby’s No Future kick, but Blue kicked out of the pin at two. Saraya then smashes Skye with a spray paint can twice. The referee somehow missed all of it, and Ruby was able to get the pin.
  • The Outcasts beat up Skye after the match, until Kris Statlander runs in for the save. Kris tries to pick Blue up, but Skye wants no part of it and leaves the ring. The commentators refer to Blue’s response as a perplexing situation.
  • That’s the end of the show, folks!
