Enjoy the show!


  • Rampage kicks off with Powerhouse Hobbs defending the TNT championship against Penta El Zero Miedo, with both men in the ring ready to go. The QTV crew is in Hobbs’ corner.
  • Powerhouse Hobbs defeats Penta El Zero Miedo to retain the TNT title. Hobbs catches Penta in a back breaker in the early going. QT Marshall ties Penta’s mask to the bottom rope when the ref isn’t looking. Hobbs gets a few kicks in, but Alex Abrahantes soon unties Penta from the rope. Penta turns things around after the commercial break with a sling blade and backstabber. Penta escapes out of Powerhouse’s finisher and connects with a series of kicks before crashing onto him with a dive over the top rope. Penta drives Hobbs into the steels steps, then follows up with two diving foot stomps for a near fall. QT gets on the apron with a chair. Aaron Solo gets involved, but Penta takes him out with a package piledriver. The ref is distracted again, and Hobbs knocks out Penta with the TNT title. He then gets Penta up for his finisher and puts him away for the pin fall.
  • The heels try to beat up Alex Abrahantes after the match, but Rey Fenix runs in with a hammer and chases them away.
  • A video airs recapping Kenny Omega’s match on Dynamite with El Hijo del Vikingo. Jeff Cobb is coming to fight him next Wednesday night, and we get promos from both men hyping it up.
  • Ricky Starks makes his entrance and grabs a mic. He calls out Juice Robinson to bring his ass to the ring. Juice comes out and returns the trash talk on his walk to the ring.Juice stops short of the ring and turns his back to walk away. Ricky runs out and grabs him, throwing him into the ring. Juice loses his shirt but manages to run away into the crowd. Juice says he hates Missouri so he won’t fight Ricky here or next week in St. Louis. They’ll have a match in New York City, which Excalibur says is a few weeks away, on Apr. 5.
  • We get a backstage promo from Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett, and company. Jarrett is pissed after being screwed out of the AEW International champion. There will be championship gold in their stable very soon.
  • Brody King defeats Jake Hager. The finish came shortly after Brody countered the Hager Bomb and followed up with a discus lariat. Anna Jay rammed Julia Hart into a ringpost on the outside. Brody was distracted and almost rolled up by Hager for the pin. Even so, he was able to survive and then got Hager up for his finisher to win via pin fall.
  • Swerve Strickland cuts a promo backstage on Keith Lee. Keith took out both of his men, but Swerve found another affiliate who will help him win this war against Lee.
  • Leila Grey makes her entrance along with Jade Cargill and Mark Sterling. Sterling is holding an unofficial Cease & Desist order to make Taya Valkyrie stop using her Road to Valhalla finisher.
  • Taya Valkyrie defeats Leila Grey. Sterling distracts Taya with the threatening latter, but it doesn’t hold her back for long. She quickly gets Leila up for the Road to Valhalla and wins.
  • Sterling enters the ring after the match to confront Taya with the Cease & Desist order. She hits him with an elbow strikes and slams him down to the mat with Road to Valhalla. Taya and Jade exchange trash talk from a distance.
  • Mark Henry throws to a video package hyping up The Acclaimed in tonight’s main event match.
  • Max Caster’s entrance rap includes references to Mike Bennett being a cuck and Max not getting an erection from Maria Kanellis’ Playboy magazine nude photos.
  • The Acclaimed defeat The Kingdom. The finish came after Daddy Ass had enough of Maria’s interference and chased her up the ramp. Top Flight come out to make sure she disappears to the backstage area with no chance to return. Daddy Ass neutralizes Mike Bennett on the outside while The Acclaimed deal with Taven on the inside. Caster finishes Taven off with the Mic Drop.
  • Daddy Magic and Cool Hand Ang are at the commentary table and applaud The Acclaimed for overcoming Maria’s interference and scoring the win. Daddy Ass and The Acclaimed engage in three-way scissoring as the show goes off the air.
