  • Rampage kicks off with The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass making their entrance for a trios match, with Max Caster doing his typical rap.
  • Daddy Ass & The Acclaimed defeat La Faccion Ingobernable (RUSH, Preston Vance, Dralistico). The heels do an effective job of isolating the babyfaces, with Bowens being tossed into the first row and beaten down there at one point. Daddy Ass makes the hot tag and cleans house on all three members of LFI. He hits Vance with the Fameasser, but Jose the Assistant puts Preston’s foot on the ropes to break the pin fall. Jose is thrown into the ring. Bowens gives him Scissor Me Timbers. The babyfaces try to scissor each other, but their feet are grabbed. Vance with the discus lariat on Ass for a near fall. Bowens catches Dralistico and drops him to the mat, setting him up for Caster’s Mic drop elbow from the top rope. That’s good enough for the three count.
  • Bowens grabs a mic and says they have been running through the trios division all month long. Given they are in Las Vegas, they want to do some gambling. Maybe Sunday night...the House always wins, but never bet on Black.
  • Ethan Page & The Gunns defeat three jobbers. The Gunns stomp Jobber 1 in the corner. Jobber 2 tags in and he gets some strikes in on The Gunns, but Ethan Page takes him down with authority. The Gunns put him away with their finishing move.
  • Page grabs a mic and brags about injuring Brother Zay and taking him off the PPV. Out come The Hardys. Jeff says their egos will be deleted on Sunday. Matt says Ethan’s contract and ass will be his, even if they gave to go at it 3 on 2. Brother Zay comes out wearing a neck brace. He says he isn’t cleared for Double or Nothing, but he found a replacement...HOOK. The Hardys and HOOK make their way to the ring, but the heels run away.
  • Keith Lee and Dustin Rhodes are interviewed backstage. They are told that Swerve Strickland and Brian Cage are entering the Blackjack Battle Royal. That means Keith and Dustin are also in the Battle Royal, so you know what’s coming.
  • Britt Baker & Hikaru Shida defeat Nyla Rose & Marina Shafir. Shida suplexes Shafir into Rose in the corner. Baker tags in and hits the sling blade on Marina. Shafir prevents Baker from tagging out, later making the tag herself to Rose. Nyla chokes Baker in the corner as we go to break. Shida tags in later in the match and pummels the shit out of Shafir. Hikaru finishes the sequence off with a dropkick from the top rope. Baker and Nyla tag in, with Ross setting Britt up for the flying knee from the top rope. Shida helps Britt avoid it and then delivers the meteora to Nyla. Shida runs back in and hits Shafir with the katana, allowing Baker to apply Lockjaw for the submission win.
  • After the match is over, The Outcasts appear on the video board. They are somewhere backstage standing over Jamie Hayter, who is on the ground holding her arm in pain. Baker and Shida run to the back as we go to another break.
  • Big Bill & Lee Moriarty defeat Best Friends (Chuck Taylor & Trent Beretta). These four men will all be in the Blackjack Battle Royal at Double or Nothing, Many of the other Battle Royal participants are sitting in the front row, such as Butcher and The Blade. The Best Friends go for some cheap shots on Moriarty in the early going. Big Bill comes in and runs both Best Friends over with a clothesline. Taylor and Beretta are sent over the top rope as we go to break. Big Bill goes for a splash in the corner later in the match, but he misses it and rams his head into the buckle. He recovers in time to hot a Boss Man slam on Trent. Chuck saves Trent from a pin fall attempt. Big Bill climbs the buckle, but Taylor holds onto his leg. Trent sends Lee head first into Bill’s balls. The Best Friends hit Bill with a superplex from the middle rope for a near fall. Lee eats a piledriver, but Big Bill chokeslams Taylor for the three count.
  • Bill shoves Bandido in the audience. A wild brawl breaks out ringside with all the members of the Blackjack Battle Royal. Orange Cassidy makes his entrance. He runs to the ring to keep The Best Friends safe from the fray. Brian Cage, Keith Lee, and Dustin Rhodes are in the mix too, with Cage getting double teamed by them. Swerve comes out, but he remains on stage while pointing at Lee. Keith walks his way, but Swerve bails. The ringside brawl continues as Rampage goes off the air.
