AEW RAMPAGE RESULTS FOR DEC. 8
- Rampage kicks off with AEW International Champion Orange Cassidy making his entrance, accompanied by FTW Champion HOOK and Danhausen. HOOK heads to the back, but Danhausen stays at ringside.
- Orange Cassidy defeats Angelico to retain the AEW International Championship. Cassidy’s leg is hurting from Angelico’s attack on him yesterday on ROH TV, and the injury slows him down multiple times in the match. Angelico works over the leg for a while, to the point where OC can’t take advantage for a pin after he hits Beach Break. Serpentico trips Cassidy from behind, so Danhausen does the same thing to Angelico. Angelico gets up and launches Cassidy into Danhausen, knocking him off the apron and onto Serpentico on the floor below. Angelico applies an ankle lock, but OC powers up by getting his hands in the pockets. Danhausen punches Serpentico in the dick to take him out. OC lands the Orange Punch on Angelico for the pin fall win.
- Abadon defeats Trish Adora. Abadon laughs off one of Adora’s chops early on, so she lays in some more. Abadon bites Adora’s leg at one point. Trish knocks Abadon down with a kick to the face, but Abadon pops back up and hits her finisher for the pin.
- The lights go out and TBS Champion Julie Hart is in the ring with Abadon. She lays the TBS belt on the mat between them. Abadon picks it up. The lights go out. When the lights return, Julia and the TBS title are both gone, leaving Abadon alone and pissed off in the ring.
- There’s a hype video for Willow Nightingale vs. Mercedes Martinez tomorrow night on Collision.
- Konosuke Takeshita & Powerhouse Hobbs defeat Matt Sydal & Christopher Daniels. Hobbs gets too cocky and tries to pin Sydal with one foot on his chest following a powerslam. On commentary, Don Callis suggests Hobbs wasn’t actually trying to end the match, he just likes playing with his food. Daniels takes Hobbs down, but Powerhouse gets right back up and spikes him down with a spinebuster. Hobbs hits him with his powerslam finisher for the pin.
- Renee Paquette is backstage with Top Flight and Action Andretti. They accept Penta’s challenge for a trios match.
- Continental Classic tournament match: Bryan Danielson defeats Daniel Garcia. Garcia is back in his old wrestling trunks for this bout and has a newfound intensity about him. Garcia fires up after Danielson taunts him with some hard kicks. He takes Danielson down and targets the injured side of his face. They go shot-for-shot in open-hand combat later in the fight. Danielson gets Garcia down in a choke and drives elbows into his skull. Garcia collapses on the mat just as Danielson is about to land the running knee strike. He lures Danielson into a roll-up for a near fall, and then locks him in the Dragon Tamer submission. Danielson counters out of it but is planted with a piledriver for a near fall. Garcia tries to kick Danielson’s head in. Garcia gets too cocky and does his sports entertainment dance. He then walks right into Danielson’s running knee strike. Bryan gets him down on the mat and hits with vicious crossfaces. Danielson applies the Lebell Lock, and Garcia passes out to end the match.
- Bryan Danielson scores three points in the tournament. He spits on Garcia and celebrates his win as Rampage goes off the air, while Garcia is distraught holding his head in his hands.
- That’s the end of the show, folks!
