  • Sting & Darby Allin defeat Luchasaurus & Christian Cage. Sting made the hot tag late in the match and wiped out both heels. Sting and Darby hit a combo Scorpion Death Drop / Coffin Drop on Luchasaurus to take him out of the mix. Christian had one last desperate attempt to go for his finisher on Darby, but Nick Wayne stood on the ring apron. That was enough of a distraction for Darby to roll Christian up from behind for the win.
  • HOOK, Orange Cassidy & Kris Statlander defeat Anna Jay, Daddy Magic & Angelo Parker. The heels had the advantage for the early portion of the match thanks to interference from Jake Hager. Orange Cassidy eventually took out Hager with an Orange Punch. The three babyfaces hit a triple suplex on the three heels inside the ring. HOOK applied Redrum to Magic, Statlander neutralized Jay, and Cassidy Orange Punched Parker for the three count.
  • The latest episode of QTV covers QT Marshall’s recent title defenses in Mexico. QT sends a text to Johnny TV looking for a tag team partner for next week. Johnny and Aaron Solo disagree over which one of them it is.
  • Don Callis and Konosuke Takeshita enter the ring to be interviewed by Tony Schiavone. Callis introduces Sammy Guevara as the newest member of the Don Callis family. Sammy comes out wearing new clothes and hugs Don. Sammy has a hot wife and fat paycheck, and he’s done chasing the adoration of the fans. Jericho is dead to him and he hopes to never see him again. Jericho runs down to the ring and gets some shots at Guevara and Takeshita before Don strikes him from behind. Just as Jericho is about to kill Don, Konosuke comes in with a chair and smashes Jericho with it. Sammy takes the chair from Konosuke and also blasts Chris with it. Callis gets some punches in too on Chris. He’s about to plunge the screwdriver into Jericho’s skull when Kenny Omega runs out for the save with a steel pipe! The heels all run away ASAP. Jericho and Omega bump into each other and square up. They stare at each other for a bit before Omega leaves the ring.
  • Omega is interviewed backstage and is confronted by Jericho. They make it clear that they are not friends, and are only united on the same side in order to take out Don Callis. Jericho says Guevara is a true Judas and he proposes a tag team match at WrestleDream. It will be Jericho, Omega, and Kota Ibushi vs. Konosuke Takeshita, Sammy Guevara, and someone else at the PPV.
  • The Righteous defeat The Hardys, The Kingdom & Best Friends to earn a ROH tag team title match at WrestleDream. Mike Bennett punched Chuck Taylor in the dick late in the match when the ref wasn’t looking. Jeff Hardy hit a Swanton Bomb on Chuck, but Vincent made a blind tag. Vincent then hit his own Swanton on Taylor to get the three count.
  • The Kingdom are irate after the match and use chairs to brutalize Best Friends outside the ring.
  • Mike Santana says he has survived way too much to just piss it all away. Everyone is food. You get in the way of his money, and he’ll take you out.
  • Daddy Ass & The Acclaimed defeat Dark Order to retain the AEW world trios titles. At one point in the second half of the bout, Tony Schiavone estimates that about 60% or 70% of the match has taken place in the Dark Order’s corner. Daddy Ass makes the hot tag and cleans house. Alex Reynolds almost steals it with an inside cradle on Bowens. John Silver breaks up the pin after The Acclaimed hit their combo finisher on Reynolds. Evil Uno smashes Caster with the title belt, giving Dark Order a near fall. Caster comes back with the fameasser on Reynolds. Bowens and Caster then put him away with a high impact move, lifting him up high in the air and smashing him down hard to the mat for the three count.
  • Julia Hart defeats Skye Blue. Before the match starts, the commentators note that Hart is undefeated in 2023 with more than 20 wins. Julia whispers something in Skye’s ear and slaps her in the face early in the bout. Hart hits a superplex later on, and spider verticals her way into a standing moonsault. Hart locks in her submission finisher for the win.
  • Hart reapplies the hold after the match, punishing Skye. Willow Nightingale runs down for the save and chases Julia away.
  • Bullet Club Gold cut a promo backstage hyping up Jay White vs. Andrade on Collision tomorrow night.
  • Mike Santana defeats Bronson of the Iron Savages. Santana appeals to the crowd like a babyface throughout the fight. He uses a rolling cutter and discus lariat in the match. He lands a cannonball senton in the corner, and then puts Bronson away with a power move.
  • Ortiz confronts Santana on the ramp afterwards. They exchange some words, but Santana keeps walking by and goes to the back while Ortiz stands there.
  • Mark Henry says it’s time for the main event.
  • Hangman Page & Young Bucks defeat Brian Cage & Gates of Agony to win the ROH world six-man tag team championship. The babyfaces dominate in the early-going, hitting many of their best moves and about to put the match away quickly with a triple BTE Trigger. Before they can execute the move, though, Swerve Strickland makes his entrance, distracting them. Hangman Page goes up the ramp to get at Swerve, and that’s when the heels take over in the ring. The babyfaces make their comeback later on, with Hangman Page reversing Cage’s move from the top rope, leading to a superkick party from the Bucks. The heels aren’t finished, triple teaming Hangman for a near fall. But the Bucks are back in there were more superkicks. Hangman takes out Gates of Agony with a Buckshot Lariat. He immediately nails Cage with Dead Eye but Cage kicks out at a two count! Hangman misses a Buckshot on Cage and comes face-to-face with Swerve on the apron. Cage takes out Page with a lariat and goes for the Drill Claw, but Page reverses it into a pin for the three count.
  • Swerve continues to stare down Page after the three count is made. He eventually backs off, and Rampage Grand Slam goes off the air with The Elite celebrating their championship win in the ring.
