Mitchell’s AEW Rampage Results & Report! (11/5/21)

Johnny Hungy’s on a Rampage!



AEW Rampage coverage

Johnny Hungy won’t budge on The BUDGE!

AEW is in St. Louis and is ready for a Rampage! But is Adam Cole ready for the Meat Man, John Silver, after taking a Dynamite Con-CHAIR-To?


  • Bryan Danielson VS Anthony Bowens w/ Max Caster; Danielson wins.
  • AEW TBS Championship Tournament Opening Round: The Bunny VS Red Velvet; Velvet wins and advances to the next round.
  • John Silver VS Adam Cole w/ The Young Bucks; Cole wins.


Bryan Danielson VS Anthony Bowens w/ Max Caster!

The American Dragon knows he and God’s Forsaken Champion, Miro, are going to throw down at Full Gear in the World Title Eliminator finals! But first, a bit of business as Tony Khan is going to show The Acclaimed who’s boss! Will the Five Tool Player be humbled to open Rampage?

But of course, Caster has the mic to rap! “The Acclaimed, we only do numbers. But this guy’s too busy growing cucumbers. Don’t be mad at me, bro, cuz you’re only known for your wife’s reality show! And you should eat some eggs. Look at Bowens’ arms, they’re bigger than your legs! I’mma put you into poverty, dog. Cuz I end careers quicker than your father-in-law!” Ouch, a burn on Johnny Ace? The Acclaimed has arrived, but will they be leaving with deflated egos?

The bell rings, Bowens and Bryan stare down and fans chant, “YES! YES! YES!” The two circle, tie up, and Bowens arm-drags Bryan! Bowens talks trash, as does Caster, but Bryan shrugs it off. They tie up again, Bowens arm-drags again, and Caster applauds while the fans boo. Bryan keeps cool, he and Bowens circle again. They tie up, Bryan wrenches and wristlocks to grind the arm and CLUB the elbow! Bowens gets up, slips through and wrenches back to a hammerlock, then a spin and snapmare to a ghost pin! TWO, and Bowens again gloats. The fans still boo and Bryan still keeps his cool as he resets with Bowens.

Bryan calls for a test of strength, Bowens accepts with the knuckle locks but then spins an d wrenches to sweep the legs. Cover, ONE, but Bowens facelocks then headlocks. Bryan powers out but Bowens runs him over! Bowens runs, Bryan stays low but Bowens hurdles to mule kick, front kick and run into a kick from Bryan! Fans fire up and Caster grimaces as Bryan wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! Bryan puts Bowens in a corner to CHOP, KICK and CHOP again! Bowens turns things around to CHOP and CHOP in return! Bryan EuroUppers, Bowens staggers and forearms back! Bowens gets the edge, reels Bryan in to suplex, but Bryan knees free!

Bryan wrenches and drags Bowens down to an ARMBAR! Bowens resists, rolls around and gets the ropebreak! Bryan lets off, Bowens bails to the apron but Bryan runs to PENALTY KCIK Bowens down! Fans fire up as Bryan goes to the apron, Bowens blocks this Penalty Kick to Electric Chair and SLAM Bryan face first into the apron! Bowens gets in the ring, distracts the ref, Caster CLOBBERS Bryan! Fans boo and Caster acts innocent as AEW goes picture in picture.

Bowens soaks up the heat, goes out the side to fetch Bryan, and CHOPS him. Bowens puts Bryan in the ring, stomps away on him, then rains down rights. Cover, TWO! Another try, TWO! Bowens is annoyed but he should know Bryan is tougher than this. Bowens puts Bryan on the ropes and chokes him! He lets off as the ref counts, and then Caster chokes Bryan behind the ref’s back! Caster gets away with it again, Bowens brings Bryan up to wrench and OLYMPIC SLAM! Cover, TWO! Bowens grabs Bryan’s hair to keep him close and then he throws forearms and elbows. AEW returns to single picture as Bowens CLUBS Bryan down! Fans rally up and Bryan EuroUppers back!

Bryan throws more EuroUppers, runs but Bowens elbows him to CHOP again. Bowens whips, Bryan ducks and dodges to LEAPING LARIAT! Fans fire up with Bryan and he gives Bowens YES Kicks! Again and again, from all sides! Then the BUZZSAW! Cover, TWO! Bowens is still in this, but Bryan drags Bowens up to bump him off buckles. Bryan CHOPS and KICKS, then runs corner to corner to dropkick! Bryan keeps moving, but Bowens dodges to ENZIGURI! Bryan is stuck in the ropes, Bowens gets a DRAPING TWISTING NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! The “Arrival” couldn’t end this, but Bowens puts Bryan in the corner to CHOP and CHOP and CHOP!

Bowens whips corner to corner, Bryan goes up and over and keeps moving to duck and WRECK Caster! Then he baits Bowens in to toss him out onto Caster! Bryan goes up top as The Acclaimed regroup, for a SUPER CROSSBODY! Direct hit and fans are thunderous! Bryan puts Bowens back in, climbs up another corner, and leaps to missile dropkick! Bryan fires up and fans join in as he gets the wrists. DANIELSON STOMPS! Then omoplata to LEBELLE LOCK!! Bowens taps, Bryan wins!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by submission

Bowens just felt the fire of the American Dragon, but will this just be a fraction of what Bryan unleashes on Miro in the tournament finals?


AEW shares an interview from after Dynamite.

Tony Schiavone was with FTR and Andrade El Idolo to talk about that mugging on Cody Rhodes. Dax Harwood says that we can all agree, Cody Rhodes SUCKS. MJF joins in to add how he beat Cody, too. But remember the deal, Andrade. MJF’s boys, the greatest luchadors of all time, help Andrade out for some, what do they call ’em? Robert Dinero. Andrade says money talks, so Jose hands over a fat envelope. Not enough. Uno mas, por favor. Jose hands over another fat envelope of cash and MJF says muchas gracias, senor! Time to party!

Cash Wheeler says that for those keeping count, FTR retained the AAA Tag Team Championships, and are going to win back their AEW World Tag Team Championships at Full Gear! They left Cody laying, and the only thing left is PAC! He wasn’t out there to stop them. Does that mean he’s a little British bitch? If Pac wants to prove them wrong, Dax will see him Wednesday night. #TopGuysOut! Will the Bastard get revenge through one of Andrade’s associates? Will the Lucha Brothers be there to watch his back?


CM Punk is here!

St. Louis fires up to see the Best in the World, but this isn’t a match. Punk called Eddie Kingston out, and we’re going to see a face-to-face confrontation, after the break.

Rampage returns and Punk has a mic as he does laps. “I just wanted everybody at home to think I’ve been jogging around in a circle for three and a half minutes.” But it’s great to be back in St. Louis! He wanted to say that before getting down to business. There’s drama and beef to settle with Eddie Kingston, so Punk invites Eddie Kingston out to his ring. The Mad King’s music hits, but where is he? Fans boo, Punks says alright, maybe Kingston isn’t here. He wasn’t there on Wednesday, but maybe he was here last Friday. Kingston interrupted Punk and Schiavone, maybe Punks just has to talk more so Kingston can interrupt. Oh, there he is, just like Punk said.

Kingston goes right to the ring, gets himself a mic, and mocks Punk with his crossed arms. “You want an apology? That’s what you wanted, that’s what you said Wednesday, right? Answer me when I’m talking to you.” Does Punk not like that? Punk says he loves that. It sounds a little condescending when a man asks another for an apology, but Kingston interrupted Punk, don’t paint Punk like he’s the bad guy here. Kingston interrupted Punk. Oh, yes, Kingston interrupted “the great” CM Punk! Oh, no~!

Kingston will apologize, because Punk’s right. Kingston will apologize that he was home sick, thought he had COVID, had to get tested twice, and chose to stay home because God forbid he’d get his friend, Moxley, sick, who then gets his kid sick. But that doesn’t matter because he has to apologize because the fans didn’t get Punk VS Cassidy. Here’s the world’s smallest violin playing for Punk’s little ass. So Kingston apologizes to the fans. Who is Punk? Huh? Kingston wants a second to ask, “Who are you?” Punk says that isn’t an apology and Kingston knows damn well who he is. Yes, Kingston does! This is CM Punk. But Kingston doesn’t care! He’ll tell us the truth about Punk!

Kingston wants a second to say that Punk was once a hero of Kingston’s. Him, Samoa Joe, Homicide, the Amazing Red, those guys on the indies when Kingston first broke in inspired Kingston. But Punk, “you lowlife scumbag, two-faced narcissistic bitch!” Punk judged Kingston. Kingston came to the locker room to get free from his mental crap and the streets. All Punk did was judge him. Why? Cuz he was fat and liked to eat? Or that he didn’t play the game? He didn’t kiss ass? Didn’t become friends with the booker? Didn’t bury people just to get his stuff in? So that makes Kingston wrong? NO! Punk was wrong! That’s what Kingston knows!

Does Punk want Kingston to know what he hears right now? Kingston just lumping baggage on Punk on him. There were other people Kingston named, and the truth is, it wasn’t just Punk who judged Kingston,. Homicide, Joe, Danielson, they judged Kingston. But they held him to a standard of the potential that they saw in him. Kingston is the one who fell short. Kingston can blame Punk and lose in the ring to a guy like Danielson and then try and blame Punk, but that’s not his fault. Punk is not wrong for seeing greatness 15 years ago, but he was a damn fool thinking he could hold Kingston to that standard, because Kingston is a BUM!

Kingston throws off his hat and paces around. Kingston does his best to stay calm, and says, “I’m a bum? I’m a bum. My man. Would a bum main event Full Gear? Would a bum almost have to sell his house because of the pandemic but keep fighting through to make it to the only professional wrestling company in the world today? Is that a bum?” He wants us all to understand and Punk needs to listen: Nobody wants Punk here, and they never wanted him here. Everyone else is afraid to say it but not Kingston! So get out, Punk, and stop smirking or he’ll smack it off your face! But y’know what? Kingston sees Punk’s getting a bit mad. Fight him on the 13th, AT Full Gear!

Wow, fight Kingston at Full Gear? Punk will be honest, he didn’t intend to leave without fighting Kingston, but again, Full Gear is a little bit high bar. Maybe they can do this on Elevation or Dark, something more Kingston’s speed. Kingston “laughs” but he tells Punk he’s a coward and then dares him to fight him! “Fight me. Fight me. Fight me!” They get face to face and fans want to see this right now! Punk will ask St. Louis. Do they want to see Kingston VS Punk at Full Gear? They say yes, so Punk will see Kingston on the 13th. Kingston say sit doesn’t matter about winning or losing, he’ll just beat Punk up. And after that, Punk can leave for another seven years.

Punk HEADBUTTS Kingston for that! And the fight is happening now! Fans are fired up as they scrap in the corner, but referees rush out to stop this! Kingston gets on top of Punk and the refs pull him away! They also hold Punk back but Kingston breaks free and JUMPS on Punk! Now producers and wrestlers have to get out there! Tony Khan makes it official, and Punk LEAPS on Kingston! Kingston wants to bite Punk’s forehead but the referees and wrestlers pull them apart! Kingston and Punk talk trash, fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT! LET THEM FIGHT!” but this will have to wait for Full Gear!


Backstage interview with Christian Cage & Jurassic Express.

Tony Schiavone brings up these three going back and forth with the Super Kliq. Christian says that when he walked up on the Super Kliq on Wednesday, he couldn’t help but hear Nick Jackson claiming they’re tough guys. They’re good at sneak attacks and the Young Bucks are good at those circus flips, but tough guys? They didn’t look so tough laying as the sad sacks of s*it, but Christian wants to see how tough the Super Kliq really is. Luchasaurus nods and JB says he definitely wants to see. They’re throwing out a challenge right now! Christian & Jurassic Express VS Super Kliq, Full Gear, FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE! “We’ll see you there, tough guys.”


AEW TBS Championship Tournament Opening Round: The Bunny VS Red Velvet!

Jade Cargill and Max Sterling are watching from the front row as this final first round match determines who faces #ThatBitch in the quarterfinals! Will the Hardy Family Office have a horse in the race? Or will it be sweet revenge for The Chef on the road to the gold?

AEW returns and Velvet makes her entrance. She doesn’t wait, either, she goes right into the ring and hits a THESZ PRESS! She rains down fists but Bunny shoves her away. Velvet goes corner to corner to clothesline, then she fires off boxing body shots! Bunny shoves her away again, but Velvet whips Bunny to ropes for a WHEEL KICK! Bunny flounders out of the ring but Velvet pursues! LARIAT! And Velvet talks trash to Jade! Velvet goes back to fetch Bunny but Bunny pokes her in the eye, then rams her into railing! Bunny laughs, mockingly asks where Velvet’s going, then brings her up to CURB STOMP her into steel steps!

Bunny stares down Jade and Sterling before putting Velvet back into the ring. Velvet gets to a corner, Bunny runs in and dropkicks her into buckles! Cover, TWO! Bunny stomps Velvet, drags her up and brings her around, but Velvet throws hands. Bunny knees low, runs but Velvet dodges to ROCK her with a forearm! Bunny hits back and we have a brawl! Bunny knees low, runs but into a CALF KICK! Velvet fires up and fans fire up with her as she runs in to SHINING WIZARD! RUNNING STUNNER! High stack, TWO! Bunny ducks Just Deserts and rolls Velvet with tights! TWO, but Bunny kicks low to fireman’s carry and RUNNING DEATH VALLEY! Cover, TWO!!

Bunny is furious and slaps herself around while fans rally behind Velvet. Bunny aims to SUPERKICK! Velvet staggers, Bunny grins and drags her into the dragon sleeper. But Velvet slips out and wrenches to kick. Bunny ducks but Velvet mule kicks then hooks Bunny up, FINAL SLICE! Cover, Velvet wins!

Winner: Red Velvet, by pinfall (advances to the next round)

The first course of revenge is done, but Velvet dares Jade to go right here and now! Sterling has Jade stand down, will the quarterfinals be where it all comes to a head?


Mark Henry interviews our main eventers!

John Silver has Alex Reynolds with him while Adam Cole of course has the Young Bucks. Mark Henry points out how Silver said on Being The Elite, he wanted Cole to cut his hair, be a manager, and change his name to Budge. Silver wants Henry to note that it was BUDGE, all caps. But yes, absolutely. Silver knows ol’ BUDGE is the new guy, but he just wants to see him succeed. Cole tells Silver to shut up already. It is painfully obvious Silver just thinks this is fun and games and he can make a mockery of Cole’s career. But it is really just jealousy because Silver will never even have half the career Cole has had.

Silver says he beat the Elite last week. That was a fluke! But Silver was dressed as Bambi and he won. But now BUDGE got a booboo. How’s his head? Cole admits, he is a bit hurt. But that was a Con-Chair-to to the face, and Cole handled it. There were times when he was thrown off a steel cage and he still wrestled the next day, because that is what he does. Silver will find out that Adam Cole is NOT someone to mess with. The Super Kliq heads out, we’ve had enough talk. It’s time for the main event!

John Silver VS Adam Cole w/ The Young Bucks!

Surprisingly, Silver tells the Dark Order he can handle this on his own. The bell rings and fans chant, “BUDGE! BUDGE! BUDGE!” Silver wants Cole to hold on, and he powers up the BUDGE, BAYBAY! Cole BOOTS Silver right down! Cole rains down furious fists, staggers up, but steadies himself. Cole gets Silver up to throw hands and stomp Silver in a corner. Fans rally and duel, Cole brings “Johnny Hungy” around to whip. Silver reverses to scoop and trophy lift to then HOTSHOT Cole and CLOBBER him with an uppercut! And then he shows off the guns! Cole gets to a corner, Silver is after him and TOSSES him across the ring! He’s friggin’ jacked, baby!

Cole gets up, Silver TOSSES him across the way again! Silver stalks Cole to ropes but Cole throws Silver out to the apron, then BOOTS him again! Cole goes out to join Silver but Silver KICKS him back! But Cole snapmares Silver hard onto the apron! Silver falls to the floor, Cole goes out and hooks Silver up in the camel clutch! The Bucks coordinate, and give Cole kisses! Fans cheer, Cole shoves Silver down but the ref reprimands them all as AEW goes picture in picture.

Cole puts Silver in the ring, stalks after him to ropes, and then chokes him! The ref counts, Cole lets off, and Silver gets to a corner. Cole turns Silver for a NECKBREAKER! Cole drags Silver back up, throws forearms, and then whips him to ropes to CLOBBER with an elbow! Cole has to steady himself again, perhaps that con-chair-to is still bothering him. Cole throws knees into Silver’s back, wraps on a chinlock and squeezes tight. Silver endures, fights up and hits a JAWBREAKER! Cole staggers, Silver gets to a corner, Cole runs in but into an elbow! Silver BOOTS Cole, runs in but into a fireman’s carry! USHIGOROSHI! Cover, TWO!

Cole grows annoyed and Silver gets to ropes. Cole storms over, drags Silver up and snap suplexes! Cover, TWO! Cole drags Silver up but Silver throws body shots. Cole knees low, CLUBS Silver on the neck, then paces. Cole brings Silver back up, snapmares and clamps on a chinlock. Cole grinds Silver down, Silver endures as Cole leans on the hold. Cole pushes up to put more pressure on Silver, but Silver fights up. AEW returns to single picture as Silver fires off body shots. Cole ROCKS Silver, Silver ROCKS Cole back! Cole steadies himself, Silver hits him again! And again! And KICKS and KICKS and KICKS! Silver whips, then BACK DROPS Cole!

Silver goes after Cole, whips him to ropes but Cole reverses to jump, but into a POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO! Cole clutches his head, Silver keeps his cool and the two get up. Silver ROCKS Cole with a forearm, Cole hits back! Silver forearms again, but Cole hits another. Silver throws another forearm, Cole hits back. Silver throws another forearm, and then fast hands and a kick! “YOUR NAME IS BUDGE!” Silver runs but into a BOOT, but he ENZIGURIS! Silver runs, but into a backslide! Silver rolls through, kicks, kicks and SUPERKICKS, but Cole GHOSTBUSTERS! Cover, TWO!! Silver survives and Cole is seething!

Cole steadies himself, Silver slowly rises. Cole brings down the kneepad, runs, but Silver LARIATS Cole inside-out! Fans fire up as Silver runs and BOOTS Cole in the back! Then SNAP GERMAN SUPLEX! And a PUNT KICK!! Cover, but Matt Jackson helps Cole fake the ropebreak! The ref suspects something, here comes the Dark Order! Reynolds and Uno back the Bucks off, and then Angels and Vance, too! Cole lurks behind Silver, Silver blocks the low blow! To LOW BLOW then SPINNING LIGER BOMB! Cover, TWO?!!? Cole survives and St. Louis can’t believe! Silver and Cole are down, a standing count begins. Cole and Silver are up at 5, and Cole drags himself to a corner.

Silver gets Cole up top, “This is Awesome!” as Silver climbs up to join him. Cole fights back with body shots, throws forearms and Silver falls! Cole adjusts position, Silver rises, PANAMA- NO! Silver blocks to ALABAMA SLAM Cole into the corner! GAMANGIRI, corner to corner UPPERCUT! Silver keeps going, but runs into a SUPERKICK! BLINDSIDE SUPERKICK! Then, ALL ABOUT THE BOOM!! Cover, Cole wins!

Winner: Adam Cole, by pinfall

Even with the damage done by Captain Charisma on Dynamite, Cole finds a way to survive! Will he and the Bucks look to get some payback of their own on Christian and Jurassic Express come Full Gear?

My Thoughts:

Great stuff from Rampage again! For one, Danielson VS Bowens was a great surprise opener. Caster had another good rap and Bowens got to show his stuff against Bryan. The post-Dynamite interview promo was good stuff, and I like this apparent business partnership between Andrade and The Pinnacle. Dax calling out Pac was another good way of tying all these things together, that should be a really good match, not sure how it’ll affect go-home math. Punk and Kingston had one hell of a promo segment turned brawl, and of course that Full Gear match is going to be awesome.

Bunny VS Velvet was short, but they got a lot in it, and I figured Velvet would win. There is a lot of story for Velvet VS Jade, that was the natural match-up for the quarterfinals. I’m still betting on Jade to win but she and Velvet are going to have a really good match. And then Silver VS Cole was awesome stuff, probably Silver’s best singles match yet. The Bucks of course saved him with that sneaky ropebreak, but at the same time, Cole was still going to win to get back some momentum. The Falls Count Anywhere Six Man Tag is going to be great stuff at Full Gear, and again feeds into my thinking that AEW could easily bust out Trios titles.

My Score: 8.6/10

The Acclaimed are on a Rampage!



Get ready to scissor in Sin City!

Six Man Tag: The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn VS La Faccion Ingobernable!

Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass won the Tres de Mayo Trios Battle Royal over three weeks ago and are still building momentum in the Trios Division. But will they be able to bring down Rush, Dralistico & Preston Vance? Or will LFI make Sin City tranquilo?

But of course, Platinum Max has a diss track! “Acclaimed in the house, we the nicest ever. This is not a game, this is not Fight Forever. Rush, you’re losing your cred. How you gonna fight us with all your pubes on your head? Wait, is this guy from Tijuana, bro? He looks like the dominatrix at the donkey show! We’ll make your crew say adios. Acclaimed here to win this match mas rapido!” Bowens gets the mic to say, “LAAAAS VEGAAAAAS~! The Acclaimed have arrived! SCISSOR ME, DADDY ASS~!” And he does~! But will this be muy bien for The Acclaimed? Or muy malo?

The trios sort out and fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” Bowens starts against Dralistico and the two circle. Dralistico copies the conducting of the choir, and even offers the scissor finger. Bowens goes to accept but Dralistico kicks low! Dralistoco CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS! But Bowens turns things around to CHOP, CHOP and CHOP! Dralistico CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS, but Bowens CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! Bowens whips, Dralistico goes up and over and then ducks ‘n’ dodges to RANA! Bowens comes back with a mule kick, front kick, and KOTARO KRUSHER! Fans fire up because “EVERYONE Loves The Acclaimed!”

But Dralistico gets away and tags in Perro Peligroso. Bowens tags in Caster, and The Dangerous Dog circles with Platinum Max. They tie up, Vance headlocks, and Caster powers up and out. Vance runs Caster over, mocks the scissors, then runs. Caster drops, hurdles, then arm-drags! Caster has Vance’s arm and thrusts with it! Then Caster clamps the armlock, but Vance fights up to ROCK him with a forearm! Vance whips, Caster ducks ‘n’ dodges, and leaps, but into Vance’s arms! Vance FALL AWAY SLAMS Caster towards his corner! Billy tags in and fans fire up! Billy is a big man, just like Vance.

Billy takes off the brand new “I ♥ 2 Scissor” shirt, and shows off the DADDY ABS! Billy raises the hands, calling for a test of strength. Vance goes to oblige, but then Billy tells him “SUCK IT!” Fans fire up but Vance CHOPS Billy! Vance tells Billy to “SUCK IT!” then runs, but into a scoop! Billy carries Vance around, to FALL AWAY SLAM! What Vance can do, Billy can do better! Billy scoops and SLAMS Vance, tags Bowens in, but then Rush rushes in to ROCK Billy! Dralistico attacks Bowens and Caster, the LFI turn things around as they throw out Billy and Bowens. Billy is sent into the steps! Bowens and Caster are sent into railing!

Fans rally for The Acclaimed but the LFI all stomp away on Caster in the ring. The LFI mock the scissors, and then just flip off Caster before raising the LFI fists. Fans boo while Rampage goes picture in picture.

The LFI mug Caster more, then Rush CHOPS him in a corner. Dralistico CHOPS Caster, and then Vance stands Caster back up to CHOP him, too! LFI double whip Caster corner to corner, Dralistico runs in to SPLASH, and then Vance runs in to clothesline! Rush powers up, runs, and jumps just to BOOT Caster! Rush rolls back to tranquilo while the rest of LFI raise the fists. Fans rally for The Acclaimed while Vance bumps Caster off buckles. Vance then runs to BOOT Bowens! Rush drags Caster out, throws body shots, and then he and Dralistico put Caster back in for Vance. Vance then sends Caster back out to them, to send into railing!

Fans boo, the ref reprimands, but then LFI brawls with The Acclaimed on the outside! Rampage returns to single picture as fans chant “REF YOU SUCK!” Billy is sent into railing, and Dralistico dumps Bowens over into the front row! Vance keeps on Caster while Dralistico HEADBUTTS Bowens while he’s sitting on a fan’s lap! The fans help Bowens get up, Vance drags Caster up and tags in Dralistico. Dralistico CHOPS, then throws forearm after forearm. Dralistico goes side to side for a SUPERKICK! Dralistico lounges up top and the fans boo. Dralistico drags Caster up to whip but Caster blocks!

Dralistico CHOPS Caster, has him in an open corner, and he whips Caster corner to corner again. Caster dodges the splash! Dralistico rushes back after Caster, Caster dodges, and they DOUBLE LARIAT! Both men are down, they crawl for their teams, hot tags to Vance and Billy! Daddy Ass rallies on LFI! He SPLASHES Vance in a corner, brings him out, kicks low and, well, “SUCK IT!” FAMOUSER!! Cover, but Jose helps with the ropebreak! Fans boo, they know the truth! Jose mocks the scissor fingers while celebrating his antics. But Caster tosses Jose in! Billy drags Jose up while Caster RAMS Dralistico into railing!

Bowens RAMS Rush into railing on the other side, then goes to the corner. Billy scoop SLAMS Jose into position! Bowens is up top, SCISSOR ME TIMBERS! Jose flounders out of the ring, and the fans fire up as The Acclaimed- NO, Rush & Dralistico drag Caster & Bowens out of the ring! Billy swings on Vance but he dodges, to DISCUS LARIAT!! Cover, Caster breaks it! Caster says Billy but Rush CLOBBERS Caster! Billy is in the corner, Rush stomps him! Fans boo, but El Toro Blanco says “When you mess with the bull,” only to turn around into Bowens’ Five Tool Strike Fest! SUPERKICK!!

Rush bails out, but Dralistico springboards in, FLYING CODE BREAKER! Dralistico drags Bowens up, but Bowens wrenches and clinches, THE ARRIVAL! Caster hurries, he tags in off Billy and climbs up! MIC DROP!! Cover, The Acclaimed win!!

Winners: The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn, by pinfall

A fast ‘n’ furious battle, and Daddy Ass and his boys make it through! Bowens gets the mic to say, “How we doin’ tonight, Vegas?” Fans cheer, they’re doing great! “The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass, we feel the exact same way, because we’ve been running through this Trios Division all month long! And seeing as though we are in Vegas, I think we should do some gambling. What do you say?” Bowens says that if Vegas is gonna gamble, maybe Sunday night, remember this: The House always wins, but never bet on Black! Because EVERYONE LOVES THE ACCLAIMED! Bowens, Caster & Billy call out Malakai, Brody & Buddy, will the scissors cut down the House of Black?


Six Man Tag: Ethan Page & The Gunns VS ???

From one trios match to another, All Ego & The Ass Boys are taking on The Hardy Party at Double or Nothing, with Ethan’s contract on the line! Will Ethan, Austin & Colten be rolling into Sunday to exact revenge on Matt & Jeff?

The trios sort out, Austin starts against ??? and the two circle. Ethan & Colten distract ???, and Austin CLOBBERS him! Austin swaggers, then tags in Colten. Colten drags ??? up, puts him in the corner and stomps away on him! The ref counts, Colten lets off to tell her to shut up! Tag to Austin, Austin stomps a mudhole now, but the ref counts again. Austin lets off and shouts, then tags Colten back in. The Gunns whip, body shot, knee lift, and then LARIAT! Fans boo but the Gunns soak it up. Colten says if Ethan wants some, here he goes. Tag to Ethan and he soaks up the heat while trotting around ???

Ethan stomps ??? then brings him up, only to get a JAWBREAKER! Hot tag to 222! The Gunns jump in but Austin misses, Colten gets a BOOT, and then Austin gets a haymaker! 222 throws more heavy hands, but then Ethan BOOTS him down! Fans boo as Ethan looms over 222 and shouts, “Are you kidding me?” The Gunns take care of ??? and 333 by throwing them into the railing! Ethan puts 222 up, crosses the arms, ICONOCLASM! And then he and the Gunns get 222 up, feed to the 3:10 TO YUMA!! Cover, Ethan & The Gunns win!

Winners: Ethan Page & The Gunns, by pinfall

Ethan isn’t done, either, he wants a mic! A mic is given, and Ethan says he wants to talk to the “bozos” in Vegas. “Shut up, you basic ass civilians.” Ethan doesn’t care if anyone here was watching, he wants The Hardy Boyz to have been watching. Because if so, they just saw what a REAL three man crew, a REAL trio, can do! A REAL team! And on Sunday, guess we won’t find out what the Hardy Party can do because these three took out Kassidy! FOR GOOD! So it is clearly going to be 3v2 now. But wait, here come the Hardy Boys! Fans fire up as Matt & Jeff are on stage, and Jeff has a mic of his own!

Jeff says, “The Ass Boys are looking good out here on Rampage with a boost of ego. This Sunday, the Egos will be DELETED, compliments of us.” Matt tells Ethan that his contract and his ass will belong to Matt now! If they have to fight 3v2, they’re not afraid to. Because to them, fear is only a four letter word. Wait, Kassidy is here with a neck brace? Ethan mocks them to come on down, and Austin mocks the moaning and squealing. Kassidy says unfortunately, the doctor did not clear him to compete. However… He found a replacement. It’s HOOK!! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil did help Hardy Party in the Firm Deletion, so he has returned to help them again!

Fans fire up as Hook follows the Hardy Boys to the ring, and that sends Ethan & The Gunns running! Will the remnants of The Firm be torn down once and for all now that Kassidy has #SentHook?


Backstage interview with Naturally Limitless.

Lexi Nair is with Keith Lee & Dustin Rhodes, and we all know things have been heating up between them and the now Mogul Embassy. It has just been announced that Swerve Strickland and Brian Cage are both in the Blackjack Battle Royal, as are they. What does that mean for them? Imagine that, huh? Swerve and Cage in a battle royal. So after Keith & Dustin eliminate them, because this is all for the International Championship, then Keith & Dustin can just eliminate everyone else and then make a decision on who wins it all. Dustin is confident he and Keith can come to an agreement.

But Swerve and Cage, you know it’s heated. You know it’s coming. Be ready. Keith adds that if the Embassy is in this, then he can’t wait! Keith heads out, and Dustin hopes Swerve saw that. Will nothing stop Keith & Dustin settling things with Swerve’s House this Sunday?


Britt Baker & Hikaru Shida VS Nyla Rose & Marina Shafir!

While The Doctor & The Full Metal Warrior couldn’t put away the Outcasts, they are sticking together in this ongoing battle of AEW Homegrowns and everyone else. Will these former AEW Women’s World Champions prove they are still a formidable team? Or will the Vicious Vixens be a major problem for them?

The teams sort out, Shida starts against Nyla as no strangers to each other. They circle, and then Nyla kicks low and CLUBS Shida on the back! Nyla bumps Shida off buckles, then tags in Marina. The Vixens double whip, but Shida ducks the double ax handles to shove Marina into Nyla, and then shove them both into a corner! Shida runs corner to corner to KNEE them both down! Shida then snap suplexes Marina onto Nyla! Fans fire up with Shida and she points to Britt. Fans fire up as Shida tags in Britt! Britt fires off on Marina, but Marina shoves her back. Britt dodges, comes back, SLINGBLADE! Cover, TWO!

Britt keeps on Marina with hammering elbows, then she wraps on a chinlock. Britt brings Marina up but Marina blocks the suplex. Britt powers up and still suplexes Marina up and over! Cover, TWO! Britt brings Marin up, ROCKS her, and then whips her to ropes. Marina reverses to CHOP and BOOT Britt down! Marina scowls, storms up on Britt, and tags in Nyla. The Vixens mug Britt in the corner, and Nyla CHOKES Britt on the ropes! Nyla laughs right into the corner camera before she lets go at 4. Fans boo as Nyla stands on Britt and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Nyla lets off as the ref counts, and then Nyla drags Britt up. Nyla scoops Britt to SLAM her down, then she soaks up the heat. Nyla stomps Britt, drags her up, and scoops to SLAM her again! Nyla mocks the “D! M! D!” and then stalks Britt to scoop her again. Britt slips off, but Nyla choke grips her for a CHOKE SLAM! Cover, TWO! Marina and Shida shout at each other, and Nyla brings Britt up to CLUB her on the back. Nyla bumps Britt off buckles, tags Marina, and Marina fires off body shots! Marina kicks Britt’s legs out, then tags Nyla back in. The Vixens drag Britt up to whip her hard into the corner!

Marina whips Nyla in to SPLASH! And then Nyla feeds Britt to Marina’s BOOT! Marina taunts Shida, clamps onto Britt with an armlock, and she grinds Britt down. Britt endures, reaches out, throws slapping hands on Marina, but then Marina whips Britt back into the corner! Nyla tags back in, the Vixens mug Britt more, and Nyla RAMS Britt in the corner! And again! And again! Nyla sits Britt down, digs her boot in, and mockingly counts along with the ref before letting off at 4. Nyla snapmares, clamps claws onto Britt’s shoulders, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and the Vixens double whip Britt into their corner again! Marina sends Nyla in but Britt avoids the splash! Marina hurries after Britt, misses, and she stubs a toe on the ropes! Gotta be careful going barefoot! Hot tag to Shida! Shida dodges Marina, ENZIGURIS her down, then rolls to SHOTEI Nyla! Marina throws a forearm, but Shida throws a flurry in return! Fans fire up with Shida as she just hammers away on Marina! Marina staggers around, swings, but Shida DECKS her! Shida puts Marina in a corner, climbs up, and Shida rains down more fists! The fans count along and Shida gets all the way to TEN!

Shida roars, brings Marina out with a kick, and then adjusts up top to MISSILE DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Shida tags Britt then runs to ROCK Nyla! Britt brings Marina up, TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, but Nyla scoop SLAMS Shida onto it! Nyla is mad and she hoists Britt up. Nyla hangs Britt out to dry, then goes to the corner! Nyla climbs, aims, but Shida saves her from the knee! Nyla runs back in, but Shida & Britt dump her out hard! And then a METEORA to the floor wipes the Native Beast out! Britt has a glove, she spells it out, “D! M! D!” But Marina CHOPS, KICKS and KICKS! But Britt dodges to SUPERKICK!

Britt hurries to ripcord and- NO, Marina gets around to ripcord and SAYANAGI! Cover, TWO into a ghost pin! TWO into the RINGS OF SATURN! Shida is in, KATANA puts Marina into the LOCK JAW!! Marina is OUT, the ref calls it! Britt & Shida win!

Winners: Britt Baker & Hikaru Shida, by submission

A hard fought victory for the Doctor and the Warrior! But wait, The Outcasts are on the tron! And they’re all shaking their heads but smirking as they stand over JAMIE HAYTER! They went after her backstage! Shida & Britt hurry to the back but the damage has been done! Will Hayter be able to defend the AEW Women’s World Championship after this?


Mark Henry welcomes us back to Rampage.

“Tonight, ahead of the Blackjack Battle Royal, Lee Moriarty & Big Bill take on Best Friends. Let’s see which team comes out on top. Well, it looks like there’s been enough talk. It’s TIME for the main event!” Will Trent Beretta & Chuck Taylor have the hot hand going into the International Championship match? Or will #TAIGASTYLE and the human skyscraper make bust them already?

Best Friends VS Lee Moriarty & “Big Bill” Morrissey!

As Best Friends make their entrance, we see their best amigos, Bandido, Komander and even The Lucha Brothers all watching from the front row. They’re all going to be in the battle royal, too, and well, look at that. It would seem The Superbad Squad and the Varsity Athletes had the same idea. They’re all together in one section watching this in person, too.

Anyway, the teams sort out and Moriarty starts against Chuck. They circle, Chuck does some drop steps, and then the two tie up. Chuck waistlocks, wrenches an arm, then wristlocks. Moriarty works on the escape, but Chuck cranks the wrist. Moriarty stomps a leg, rolls and kips up to then arm-drag free. Chuck backs off and Moriarty does his dance. Fans boo but Bill cheers. Trent tags in and he circles with Moriarty. They tie up, Moriarty gets around to a waistlock but Trent switches. Moriarty switches back, Trent switches again, but Moriarty elbows free and hits a headlock takeover.

Trent headscissors, Moriarty kips free and hits another headlock takeover. Trent headscissors again, Moriarty kips free again, and fans cheer the standoff. Moriarty does his dance and fans boo again. Moriarty claps at Trent, but Trent offers a handshake. Moriarty accepts, but he sees the cheap shot coming! Trent laughs it off, but Moriarty rakes the eyes! Moriarty CHOPS Trent to ropes, whips him, but Trent reverses. Chuck hits Moriarty, but Moriarty DECKS him! But then Trent CLOBBERS Moriarty! Fans fire up with Trent and he brings Moriarty up. Trent CHOPS Moriarty down, then tags Chuck.

Best Friends double whip Moriarty to a corner, then Trent sends Chuck in to clothesline! Trent runs in to ELBOW! Trent brings Moriarty out, Best Friends double suplex! They both flex on Morrissey, then SLAM Moriarty down! Fans cheer but Big Bill runs in! He breaks the double clothesline to DOUBLE LARIAT the Best Friends! Bill clotheslines Chuck out, then he whips Trent corner to corner hard! Trent tumbles up and out and Bill paces. Best Friends are down while Rampage goes picture in picture.

Bill goes out to stomp Trent around, then stalks Trent. Bill rains down fists on Trent, but Chuck is after Moriarty! Chuck whips but Moriarty reverses to send Chuck into railing! Bill drags Trent up, ROCKS him, and Moriarty puts Chuck in the ring. Moriarty drags Chuck up, UPPERCUTS him, and then CHOKES him on the ropes! The ref counts, Moriarty lets off, and he distracts the ref so Bill can BOOT Chuck down! Moriarty covers, TWO! Moriarty drags Chuck up, the Varsity Athletes and Superbad Squad aren’t impressed with any of this, but Bill tags in. Bill throws body shots, the Lucha Brothers cheer Chuck on.

Bill digs his boot in, but steps off as the ref counts, and Moriarty CHOKES Chuck now! Trent protests but Moriarty scurries away. Bill soaks up the heat from Vegas, then he DECKS Chuck! Bill drags Chuck up, ROCKS him again, then tags in Moriarty. They mug Chuck, stomp away on him, and the ref counts. Moriarty lets off and roars, then goes back to Chuck. Moriarty drags Chuck up to wrench an arm into an ELBOW BREAKER! Moriarty snapmares Chuck, wraps him up, but Chuck fights the straitjacket. Moriarty turns Chuck over and hammerlocks an arm, to then SNAP LOCK it!

Chuck endures, even as Moriarty bridges over! Moriarty then goes back around to SNAP LOCK the arm again! Chuck endures, Moriarty bridges again, and then SNAP LOCKS a third time! Chuck manages to sit up, he throws some elbows, and he gets free! Only for Moriarty to DECK Trent with a cheap shot! Moriarty CLUBS Chuck, brings him around and tosses him out! The ref is distracted with Moriarty and Bill goes over to run at Chuck. But Chuck dodges, and the big boot from Big Bill gets stuck on the railing! That’s not good for Little Willie! Rampage returns to single picture and Moriarty rushes out! Chuck dodges and slides in, to hot tag Trent!

Fans fire up as Trent gets around to GERMAN SUPLEX Moriarty! And then GERMAN SUPLEX again! And HALF ‘N’ HALF SUPLEX! Fans fire up while Moriarty flops out of the ring. Trent builds speed to DIVE, but into Big Bill’s  big hands! APRON CHOKE SLAM!! The Lucha Amigos all wince from that and Trent flops to the floor. Bill drags Trent up, puts him in the ring, and then he tags in. Bill runs in at Trent, but Trent dodges the splash! Bill hits buckles and maybe even post! Trent half nelsons but Bill elbows free, only to get a SEXY CHUCKIE KNEE! Trent then reels Bill back in, SOLE FOOD HALF ‘N’ HALF!!

Fans fire up with Best Friends, and Best Friends HUG! You GOT to give the people what they want! Trent then drags Bill up while Chuck climbs the corner. But Moriarty CLUBS Chuck down off the corner! Bill turns Alabama Lift into Canadian Rack, but Trent slips free! Trent runs, but into the BIG BOSS MAN SLAM!! Fans fire up from that feat of strength, and Bill tags Moriarty. They haul Trent up, Bill full nelsons and Moriarty gets the legs, NARAKU!! Cover off the full nelson swinging bomb, but Chuck breaks it!! Fans fire up as Best Friends survive! Moriarty drags Chuck up to TOSS him! Tag to Bill and they go back to Trent.

Moriarty wants Bill to go to the corner and Bill climbs up. Moriarty brings Trent up, but Chuck anchors Bill! Trent sends Moriarty into Little Willie! Moriarty flops out of the ring, and Best Friends fire off hands on Bill! They adjust Bill’s position up there, then climb up after him! DOUBLE SUPERPLEX!! Trent crawls to the cover, TWO!!! Bill survives and the Varsity Athletes are amused. The Lucha Amigos rally for Trent & Chuck as Chuck reels Bill in. But Moriarty slides in to claw Chuck’s eyes! The ref reprimands but Trent whips Moriarty. Moriarty reverses to send Trent out and then BOOT him down!

But Chuck kicks Moriarty and reels him in! AWFUL WAFFLE!! But Bill BOOTS Chuck!! Bill choke grips, and SKYSCRAPER CHOKE SLAMS him!! Cover, Bill & Moriarty win!

Winners: Lee Moriarty & “Big Bill” Morrissey, by pinfall

Moriarty & Morrissey stand tall, but this was in tag team action. The battle royal is every man for himself, will it come down to these two at the end? Wait, they go up to the Lucha Amigos to talk some trash, and Bandido gives thumbs down right to their faces. Bill shoves Bandido, so Bandido throws a forearm! Moriarty goes after Bandido, the Lucha Brothers go after Moriarty and Bill! And then Butcher, Blade, Kip, and the Varsity Athletes join in! People are sent into railing, and the Varsity Athletes mug Trent in the ring! Sterling tells them to keep going, but here comes ORANGE CASSIDY himself!

The Freshly Squeezed International Champion is here, he runs the Varsity Athletes off swinging his backpack, but the other entrants are still brawling it out on the outside! Cassidy shows off the prize, but here comes THE MACHINE! Brian Cage storms his way down to the ring, but here comes KEITH LEE! He and Dustin Rhodes storm their way down to the ring, and they add a lot of beef to the brawl! Naturally Limitless mugs Cage, the Varsity Athletes still mug Trent, and Cassidy just looks around at the chaos. But then “Whose House? SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Swerve is here in person, but he doesn’t seem in any rush to save Cage.

Keith eyes Swerve from the ramp, but Dustin still throws hands on Cage. Keith storms up after Swerve, but Swerve laughs and dares him to follow backstage. Cage turns things around on Dustin, all the other teams keep beating on each other! If this is how it is to close Rampage, how much wilder will it get when the title is on the line?

My Thoughts:

A really good Rampage for the go-home of Double or Nothing, and obviously since we didn’t see the traditional pre-battle-royal brawl on Dynamite, of course we saw it here to close the show. The main event tag match was great stuff, and what a great surprise that Best Friends didn’t win! The go-home math now says Moriarty & Morrissey aren’t winning, though I would love if one of them did have a belt. Honestly, they’re trying to make it seem like Cassidy is going to retain the title, since almost everyone else in the battle royal either A) has a feud going already or B) just isn’t at midcard champion level yet.

For example, Swerve & Cage VS Keith & Dustin. We should’ve had some kind of blowoff way sooner than this, maybe on a themed Dynamite and in a No Disqualification style match. Same thing for Ricky Starks, Jay White and Juice Robinson being in this match. But that problem goes all the way back to how AEW handled Starks VS Jericho and the Jericho Appreciation Society. In the end, if anyone new is winning this belt, I would actually want it to be Komander. Komander is still with AAA, so I would love to see him do a tour of Mexico with the title the same way Pac toured the UK with it to establish that first reign.

Decent squash match from Ethan & Gunns beating those jobbers we never even got the names of, and great promo with Hardy Party to establish a new take on the Six Man Tag. Hook joining is a natural choice given he helped the Hardys against The Firm before, but something about this feels like the same backwards pacing as we’ve seen with Starks. The Hardys should’ve turned the contract control tables on Ethan way before The Firm Deletion, with The Firm Deletion being the blowoff that sends the Hardys and Ethan in different directions. Hook & Hardys will definitely win, and we will get who knows how many months of shenanigans where Matt orders Ethan around.

Really good women’s tag match with Britt & Shida winning, even though there’s nothing to win for women’s tag teams in AEW anymore/right now. But of course The Outcasts attack Hayter 3v1 to put her on the defensive. This go-home math would mean Hayter overcomes the odds because she has Britt & Shida helping against Saraya & Ruby. Personally, I’m hoping Taya Valkyrie beats Jade Cargill for the TBS Championship, so that Jade can then jump up to the world title scene and really just tear into all six ladies. What bigger way to lead into AEW Collision, AEW All In and AEW All Out this Summer than with Jade finally being more than the midcard champion?

And great stuff at the beginning with The Acclaimed VS LFI. I just knew Acclaimed would find a way to win and then call out The House of Black. Apparently House of Black issued an open challenge for Double or Nothing, so The Acclaimed has answered it already. I am curious to know what stipulation The Acclaimed will bring to the Open House, but I really can’t be sure who wins. The House of Black have made the Trios Championships unique from the other titles, and have a growing popularity with the fans, but The Acclaimed are also really popular. This is like how AEW booked themselves into a corner with Hobbs VS Wardlow, and look where that’s gotten Hobbs.

My Score: 8.7/10
