Boston, MA – Agganis Arena
AEW taped this week’s Rampage Wednesday night after Dynamite.
- Bryan Danielson defeated Trent Beretta via LeBell Lock submission. William Regal was on commentary for the match.
- Backstage: Hook & Danhausen – Hook was interviewed backstage, but said nothing and ate a bag of chips. Danhausen popped out of a trash can to try to curse him, but Hook just tossed the bag of chips and walked away. Danhausen then grabbed the chips and ate them.
- In-Ring: Men of the Year, Dan Lambert, Sammy Guevara & Tay Conti – Lambert and Men of the Year came out for a promo, with Scorpio Sky re-iterating that he has ended the TNT title open challenge. Guevara and Conti came out and said he will make their lives hell until he gets a title shot, and they traded insults. The crowd did not seem to like anyone in this segment, with a lot of boos all around.
- Swerve Strickland defeated QT Marshall via kick to the back of the head. After the match, Ricky Starks came out from the commentary table to challenge Swerve to a tag team match next week: Starks & Powerhouse Hobbs vs. Swerve & Keith Lee.
- Owen Hart Foundation Tournament Qualifier: Red Velvet defeated Willow Nightingale via Just Desserts (running kick). The crowd was behind Nightingale and booed when Velvet won.
- Jon Moxley defeated Wheeler Yuta via bulldog choke. Yuta was said to have put on a great performance, even kicking out of the Paradigm Shift before Moxley ultimately finished him off. After the match, William Regal and Bryan Danielson came into the ring. The crowd chanted “shake his hand” and Regal did, apparently welcoming him into the “Blackpool Combat Club.”
