Last night’s edition of AEW Rampage was stacked, featuring the likes of Samoa Joe, Kyle O’Reilly, Wardlow, Toni Storm and many more. Plus, FTR defended the ROH Tag Team Championships against a reunited Roppongi Vice. MJF was the referee for this bout as Wardlow looked to complete the final step of his tasks to secure his match with MJF at Double Or Nothing. The beginning of the bout saw MJF misplace the key, allowing Spears to carry out a vicious attack while Wardlow was still handcuffed. MJF would continue to taunt Wardlow, but this would only make the big man angry to the point that he was able to break free of his handcuffs. Spears looked like he almost had the victory after dropping his opponent with the C4. Wardlow would capitalise by hitting Spears with four powerbombs and following up with one final one onto a chair, securing the victory and booking his place at Double or Nothing, where he has the chance to get revenge for weeks of torment. Both men took to the ring to answer questions from Tony Schiavone. William Regal and Chris Jericho joined the commentary table with Jericho, accompanied by the rest of the Jericho Appreciation Society. Moxley and Kingston started off the bout strong, with Kingston dissecting Marq Quen and dropping him with a huge powerbomb.
Private Party got some offence back, showcasing great tag team IQ to take the fight to Jon Moxley. This proved to not be enough as Moxley was able to pick up the victory after hitting a devastating Paradigm Shift. FTR looked to retain their titles and carry on their impressive ROH Tag Title reign. Rocky Romero started off the match against Cash Wheeler and gained momentum instantaneously for his team after catching Wheeler with a flying cross armbreaker. As the match progressed there was a good sequence between Trent and Dax who went back and forth chopping each other in the corner. Roppongi Vice would continue to dominate and showcase their tag team prowess, almost securing the victory after a slick sequence of tag team moves on Dax. However, a near fall breakage from Cash led to all four men laid out in the ring. Swerve Strickland def Jungle Boy and Ricky Starks- Triple Threat match All three men were looking for bragging rights heading into Sunday’s triple threat tag match for the AEW World Tag Team Championships. Starks started off the match strong, utilising the outside to his advantage by throwing Swerve and Jungle Boy into the barricade before levelling Swerve with a stomp off the apron. As the match progresses, all three men would get the good offence on one another but Swerve would secure the victory after hitting Starks with a huge double foot stomp, securing the advantage for himself and Keith Lee going into Sunday’s Pay-Per-View.
Post-match would see Keith Lee take out both Powerhouse Hobbs and Luchasaurus. The stakes were high as the first semi-final was set between two women who over the past few weeks have wanted to get their hands on one another. Strom got early control on Baker scouting everything she threw at her and eventually grounding Baker to the mat. Storm would keep fighting back and came close to victory after hitting a tornado DDT. Baker will face the winner of Kris Statlander and Ruby Soho at Double Or Nothing. Samoa Joe def Kyle O’Reilly – Owen Hart Foundation Tournament Semi-Finals The winner of this bout will meet Adam Cole in the final at Double Or Nothing this Sunday. Both men came out the gate demonstarting their strong striking abillities. O’Reilly would begin to put the pressure on Joe, dissecting each limb of the powerhouse. O’Reilly would look to roll up Joe but this just gave an opening for Joe to lock in the Coquina Clutch to secure his place at Double Or Nothing to challenge Adam Cole for the inaugural Owen Hart Foundation Cup.
