  • Rampage kicks off with a Team Team Battle Royale, with the winning team earning a shot at the AEW world tag team titles. The eight teams in the ring include The Blade & Butcher, Luther & Serpentico, Daddy Magic & Angelo Parker, Big Bill & Brian Cage, Matt Sydal & Christoper Daniels, Matt & Jeff Hardy, Ethan Page & Brother Zay, and Jay Lethal & Satnam Singh. Both members of a team must be tossed out for the team to be officially eliminated.
  • Big Bill is swarmed in the middle of the ring to start the Battle Royal. Bill survives it and tosses Luther out for an elimination. It doesn’t take too long for Butcher and Blade to get Serpentico out of there next. Brother Zay is caught in mid air by Satnam Singh, who proceeds to throw Zay out of the ring for an elimination. Matt Sydal unwisely goes at it 1 on 2 against Daddy Magic and Angelo Parker, so they work together to get rid of him. Matt and Jeff Hardy then toss out Angelo Parker. Ethan Page hits Lethal with a cutter and tries to throw him over the rope, but Sonjay Dutt gets on the apron to save Jay. Satnam runs from behind and eliminates Page in the chaos. The Hardys then ram Singh into Lethal on the apron, sending Lethal to the floor for another elimination as we go to commercial break.
  • Big Bill tosses Daddy Magic out of the ring as we return from break. Butcher and Blade get rid of Daniels next. Matt Hardy tries for the Twist of Fate on Singh, but he can’t do it. Singh lifts him up and eliminates Hardy. Jeff Hardy then goes after Satnam and does hit the Twist of Fate. Hardy works together with Brian Cage and Big Bill to clothesline Singh over the top rope and to his elimination. Jeff is tossed out next, leaving a final four of Big Bill & Brian Cage vs. The Butcher & The Blade. Blade hits a stunner on Bill and Butcher follows up with a lariat, but Cage saves his partner. Bill gets up and nails a double clothesline. He blasts Butcher with a big boot. They hit Blade with their tandem finisher and then toss him over the rope for an elimination. Butcher tries to fight off Brian and Bill all by himself, but its too much. Butcher is chokeslammed to the mat and then thrown over the top rope to end the match. Brian Cage and Big Bill win the Tag Team Battle Royale.
  • The Kingdom cut a promo talking about how much they love Ring of Honor and plan to be the best tag team in wrestling.
  • Komander defeats Kip Sabian. Komander is accompanied to the ring by Alex Abrahantes, while Sabian has Penelope Ford in his corner. After a comedy spot in the early going, Komander gets into the groove by diving over the top rope and crashing onto Sabian outside the ring. Komdner’s right shoulder is weakened during the commercial break, so Sabian works it over. Komander connects with Kip’s skull on a spinning heel kick. Komander walks the tight rope and goes for a shooting star, but Sabian rolls out of the way and targets the right shoulder again. Sabian lands a running shooting star press, but Komander kicks out of the pin attempt. Penelope Ford tears at Komander’s eyes when the ref is distracted. Sabian follows up with a slingshot supelx, but Komander kicks out of the pin attempt. Komander recovers and lands some kind of modified flying Canadian destroyer. He then walks the tightrope and hits the shooting star press for the pin fall victory.
  • The Kingdom defeats two jobbers. The commentators hype up Matt Taven and Mike Bennett as a team that can beat any other duo in AEW. This is a very quick squash match, with just a few moves leading to the immediate pin fall.
  • Dark Order cut a promo about how they embraced hardcore violence at ROH Death Before Dishonor.
  • Hikaru Shida defeats Nyla Rose. Rose rushes Shida to start things off and thinks about hitting her with the kendo stick. Shida sends Nyla stumbling into the corner and then follows up with a running knee strike. Rose avoids a missile dropkick and tosses Hikaru out of the ring. Nyla catches Hikaru upside down and swings her into the barricade right before the commercial break. Shida gets Nyla up and over for a suplex later in the match. However, Nyla comes back and chokeslams Shida off the ropes. Rose goes for the Beast Bomb, but Shida counters it. Shida hits the Falcon Arrow on Rose. Nyla counters the Katana with a lariat and follows up with a senton. Nyla goes up to the top turnbuckle, but Hikaru disrupts her balance.Shida meets her up there for an Avalanche Falcon Arrow. Marina Shafir puts Nyla’s boot on the bottom rope to break up the three count. Shida takes care of Marina with the kendo stick. Hikaru then avoids the Beast Bomb and connects with the Katana on Nyla for the pin fall win.
  • Toni Storm and The Outcasts emerge on the ramp. Shida exchanges trash talk with the group from a distance. Shida will challenge Storm for the AEW women’s world championship next Wednesday on the 200th episode of Dynamite.
  • That’s the end of the show, folks!
