  • The match begins with Darby Allin and Jay Lethal in Ring 1, and Swerve Strickland and Nick Wayne in Ring 2. Minoru Suzuki comes out his next and does his full entrance before getting in the ring with Darby and Lethal. He shakes hands with Jay and they stomp Darby in the corner. Brian Cage is next and immediately targets Wayne, spiking him down to the mat. Lethal and Minoru have a miscommunication and start shoving each other, just as Ethan Page enters their ring.
  • Komander is out next and walks the tightrope as he enters the ring. jumping off Cage’s shoulders and DDT’ing Swerve.The Butcher joins Ring 1 and clotheslines Page. Big Bill is next in Ring 2, using power moves on Komander and Wayne. Lethal missed the Lethal Injection and is tossed out by Page for the first elimination. He is a sore loser and grabs Page’s arm over the rope, allowing Suzuki to toss Page out as well for the next elimination. Suzuki tries to piledrive Butcher, but is backdropped over the rope for the next elimination. The Blade enters Ring 1 next and joins up with the Butcher to beat the shit out of Darby as we go to break. It looks like Brother Zay entered Ring 2 during the break.
  • Toa Liona enters Ring 1 coming back from commercial, with Darby now being triple teamed by Butcher, Blade, and Liona. Matt Sydal joins Ring 2 and works together with Zay to hit a cutter on Swerve. Bishop Kaun enters Ring 1 and works with Liona to go after Butcher and Blade, while Brother Zay becomes the first wrestler eliminated from Ring 2. Butcher and Blade are eliminated simultaneously by Liona and Kaun in Ring 1. Matt Hardy joins Ring 2 and takes the fight to Big Bill. Daddy Magic joins Ring 1 while Sydal is eliminated from Ring 2 by Big Bill. Jeff Jarrett enters Ring 2 and goes right after Hardy. The final man to enter Ring 1 is Angelo Parker, providing backup for Daddy Magic. He tries to fight off Kaun and Liona, but to no avail. The final man to enter Ring 2 is Jake Hager as we go to another break.

Meanwhile, Hardy tosses out Jarrett in Ring 2. Big Bill clotheslines Hardy out of the ring for the next elimination. Wayne is at a 3 on 1 disadvantage with Bill, Cage, and Swerve.

Wayne goes back in Ring 2 and hits a stunner on Cage. Cage is eliminated, leaving only Wayne and Swerve in Ring 2. Wayne and Liona are both eliminated, setting the stage for Darby vs. Swerve as the final two men in the Royal Rampage.
  • Darby is down on the mat and can barely move. Even so, he backdrops Swerve onto the apron and tries to bite his fingers to loosen his grip. Prince Nana comes from behind and hits Darby with a skateboard. Swerve powerbombs Darby onto the wheels of the skateboard. He tosses Darby over the rope, but Darby holds on. Swerve goes for the top rope stomp on the apron edge. Darby avoids it, leaving Swerve staggering. Darby gets back in the ring and speeds up for the suicide dive through the ropes. Both men crash to the floor outside, which means Allin wins the match.
  • Darby Allin wins Royal Rampage and earns a TNT title match at All Out.
  • Daddy Ass & The Acclaimed come out for a trios match with QTV. Max Caster does his usual rap routine, I think mentioning 2 Girls, 1 Cup. Scissor me, Daddy Ass!
  • Daddy Ass & The Acclaimed defeat Johnny TV, QT Marshall, and Aaron Solo. The fans chant “Oh, scissor me Daddy!” to begin the match as Ass mixes it up with QT. Caster tags in and slams QT. Bowens takes out TV, and Ass clotheslines QT out of the ring. All three babyfaces have the ring to themselves, so they engage in three way scissoring as we go to break. Ass makes the hot tag coming out of the break. Bowens lights up TV with punches and elbows the crap out of QT. The heels have one final hot stretch in them, with QT nailing a diamond cutter on Ass. They go to add insult to injury by targeting Ass’s crotch, but The Acclaimed get in there and interrupt their plans. Caster hits the mic drop on Solo and Ass makes the pin.
  • Bowens cuts a promo after the match hyping up their trios title match against House of Black tomorrow night on Collision.
  • Mark Henry says it’s time for the main event of Kris Statlander vs. Marina Shafir.
  • Kris Statlander defeats Marina Shafir to retain the TBS title. There are five minutes left in the broadcast as the match begins. Stat takes Shafir down early, but Marina comes back with strikes in the corner. She judo tosses Stat down to the mat and gets on top to pound on her. Shafir kicks Stat from the front and back. Statlander catches her leg, picks Shafir up on her shoulders and drops her down to the mat. After a replay cut, Statlander hits a vertical suplex. There’s another replay cut. After the replay, Statlander goes for Friday night fever, but Shafir counters. Stat lands a discus lariat, and then puts Shafir away with Friday night fever for the pin.
  • That’s the end of the show, folks!
