AEW RAMPAGE RESULTS FOR SEPT. 29
- Daddy Ass & The Acclaimed defeat The Hardys & Brother Zay to retain the AEW world trios championship.The crowd went back and forth chanting “Delete!” and “Suck it!” at one point when Matt Hardy squared off with Daddy Ass and they used those corresponding gestures. Jeff nailed the Swanton on Ass late in the match, but The Acclaimed made the save. The finish saw Zay get caught in the babyfaces tandem finisher for the pin, with Jeff Hardy diving in just a tad too late trying to break up the three count.
- An Eddie Kingston backstage promo is interrupted by Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett, and the rest of their crew. Lethal says Eddie is unfit to be the ROH world champion. Kingston laughs off Jay’s insult as he heads to the ring to defend the NJPW Strong Openweight championship against Rocky Romero.
- Andrade El Idolo is interviewed backstage, with his had bandaged after being attacked by Bullet Club Gold on Collision. He plans to kick Juice Robinson’s ass on Collision tomorrow night.
- Eddie Kingston defeats Rocky Romero to retain the NJPW Strong Openweight championship. Eddie gets caught up in the ropes at one point and dares Rocky to hit him harder, and so he obliges. Romero nails an Avalanche Sliced Bread for a two count. But shortly thereafter, Rocky runs right into Eddie’s spinning backfist finisher. Eddie follows up with another, and then submits Romero with the Stretch Plum.
- Eddie and Rocky show each other respect after the match. Romero takes his leave, and that’s when ROH Pure Champion Katsuyori Shibata makes his entrance. He walks down to the ring and grabs Eddie’s fist in another sign of respect, ahead of their match at WrestleDream.
- Aussie Open cuts a backstage promo on FTR. They want to make FTR feel the same pain of defeat that they experienced at FTR’s hands last year. They are going to take the AEW world tag team titles from FTR at WrestleDream.
- The Righteous defeat Caleb Crush & Gunnar. This was a squash match; the jobbers never stood a chance. The commentators wonder how MJF can prevail at WrestleDream by himself against a team as motivated as The Righteous.
- A quick video airs covering the breakup of Santana and Ortiz, including brief audio of Konnan discussing their issues.
- Nick Wayne cuts a promo on Luchasaurus. He doesn’t know why Christian tries to parade around as a father figure to lost boys like Luchasaurus and himself. Wayne vows to pay Lucha back for chokeslamming him on the skateboard at All In. It’s Wayne vs. Luchasaurus at the Zero Hour pre-show this Sunday ahead of WrestleDream.
- Zack Sabre Jr. is interviewed by Renee Paquette, fresh off his flight from Japan. He plans to force Bryan Danielson to retire again in Seattle at WrestleDream.
- Hikaru Shida defeats Ruby Soho. Shida carried Soho up the ramp in a backbreaker position late in the match, until Soho finally escaped her grip. Both women desperately ran back into the ring just in time to beat the ref’s ten count. Soho tries to use a kendo stick. The ref takes it away, but as he is busy doing that, Soho pulls out the can of spray paint. It backfires, though, and the referee takes a bump from the can. Soho hits her finish but there is no ref to count it. Shida comes back to hit her finisher, but there is still no ref to count. Aubrey Edwards runs down to make the count, but Soho kicks out of the pin attempt. Shida and Soho continue exchanging high impact moves. Soho lands the No Future kick on Shida’s shoulder. Shida stumbles but quickly returns fire with the Katana for the three count.
- As a result of this victory, Shida earns a title match against AEW women’s world champion Saraya on the “Title Tuesday” episode of Dynamite on October 10. Saraya comes out to stare down Shida as Rampage goes off the air.
