Enjoy the show!


  • Rampage kicks off with Darby Allin vs. Brian Cage, with both men already in the ring and ready to go.
  • Darby Allin defeats Brian Cage. The highlight of the early portion of the match was a spot where Darby climbs atop Brian’s back on the outside, so Cage throws himself back-first through a table to break Darby’s grip. Brian drags Darby back into the ring and beats him in the corner as we go to commercial break. Darby tweaks his foot later in the match and gets caught in multiple powerbombs. Darby uses Cage’s belt to sweep him off his feet. Darby follows up with a Coffin Drop on the ring apron. Allin crashes and burns after Prince Nana interferes. Cage sends Darby spinning to the mat below for a near fall, without hooking the leg on the pin. Cage goes for an F5, Darby counters it into a roll-up for the pin fall win.
  • Luchasaurus hits the ring right after the match is over and he takes out Darby Allin, with Christian watching on from backstage holding onto the TNT title.
  • Renee Paquette interviews Britt Baker backstage. Britt cuts a promo on her friend The Bunny and says she is going to win the AEW women’s world championship at All In.
  • Eddie Kingston has an update on how hard he’s working his ass off in the G-1 Tournament in Japan.
  • Harley Cameron sings Johnny TV down to the ring for his match against AEW International Champion Orange Cassidy.
  • Orange Cassidy defeats Johnny TV to retain the AEW International title. The entire QTV crew is caught interfering early on in the match, so the ref ejects them all from ringside. However, Wheeler Yuta shows up and distracts Orange, leading to TV scoring a near fall with a jumping kick. The ref ejects Yuta too. TV misses Starship pain later in the match. OC lands a diving DDT from the top rope. He connects with the Orange Punch and right into the Beach Break for the pin fall win.
  • Wheeler Yuta slowly walks down to the ring to confront Cassidy. OC grabs a mic and tells him to get in the ring faster so he can punch his face in. Jon Moxley and Claudio Castagnoli show up on the other side of the ring, teasing a run-in but ultimately sparing him. Yuta says that would be beneath them. Yuta wants OC’s belt and challenges him to a match next week on Dynamite.
  • There’s a video package hyping up the prestige and history of the ROH tag team titles.
  • Aussie Open defeats The Outrunners. This was a dominant squash win for the champs.
  • Aussie Open cuts a heel promo after the match accepting the challenge of MJF and Adam Cole for a ROH world tag team title match on the All In pre-show.
  • Jeff Jarrett hypes up a Texas Chainsaw Massacre Deathmatch against Jeff Hardy next week on Dynamite.
  • Mark Henry throws to a video package hyping up Saraya vs. Skye Blue, coming up next.
  • Saraya defeats Skye Blue to advance to the 4-way AEW women’s world title match at All In. They go back and forth with roll-ups and inside cradles early on, until Blue decides she needs to attack The Outcasts and ringside. The numbers game proves too much, and Toni Storm sends Blue spilling to the floor outside as we go to commercial break. Blue lands a jumping knee strike later in the match. Saraya takes her out with a thrust kick for a near fall. Skye hits one of her own and lands Code Blue, but The Outcasts jump on the apron. Blue is blinded with spray paint as the ref is overwhelmed by the chaos. Saraya hits her finisher and gets the pin.
  • The Outcasts beat the crap out of Blue while she’s down on the mat after the match.
  • That’s the end of the show, folks!
