The Undisputed Kingdom set up chairs in the ring and Roddy

Matthew was distracting the referee. The Young Bucks smashed
Mondo with the EVP Trigger and Matthew pinned Mondo!
Nicholas: “I am so tired of the disrespect that each and
every one of you fans show us. I heard a heckler in the
front row calling us by the wrong name. It’s time to show
your EVPs a little more respect! Call us by our God-given
names of Nicholas and Matthew Jackson!”
Matthew: “I apologize my brother is a bit of a hothead.
Listen! Listen! The reason we’re out here in the first place
is to say congratulations to AEW’s new Tag Team Champions
Darby Allin and Sting! Incredible match! You’re putting your
blood, sweat and tears on the line. You’ll be great
champions but there is one caveat. I got an email, an injury
report from Doc Sampson and apparently both Darb and Sting
are a little bit banged up coming out of their big win. So,
we just wanted to say we’re thinking about you guys, we’re
praying for you guys, and we hope you’re ok.
“However, boys I want to make one thing clear. Our objective
is to get our tag team titles back! And you may be looking
at us and saying, ‘Oh, but you’re EVPs and you’re going to
politic to do whatever it takes to do that!’ No, no, no.
We’re going to play by the rules, climb up the rankings, and
have competitive matches just like we did tonight on
Rampage! We will get ranked, we will be number one
contenders, and we will get our belts! And we’ll continue to
climb up those rankings on Wednesday when you see Nicholas
and Matthew Jackson, your EVPs in tag team action! We love
you guys so much! Let’s have a killer show!”
“Tony Khan has just informed me that on Wednesday night on
Dynamite Nicholas and Matthew will have some top flight
competition when they face Dante and Darius Martin!” said

off guard with a crossbody press.
“This has been a back and forth battle,” said Excalibur.

up, countering it! Sydal charged Mistico but Mistico
walloped Sydal with a powerslam! Mistico hit a Spanish Fly
on Sydal off the top rope and pinned Sydal!
“That was a desperation move by Mistico but man, it worked!”
said Tony Schiavone.
Renee Paquette was backstage with Prince Nana and “The
Machine” Brian Cage!
Brian Cage: “HOOK thinks he can hit me in the back with a
chair and get away with it like a hit-and-run? Not today!
I’m looking for HOOK. Where is he? Coincidentally, he’s not
here. Of course he’s not here. He doesn’t want to feel the
rage of Cage on Rampage.”
Prince Nana: “You know what? I think HOOK is at home reading
a book because that’s what he needs to do instead of running
around town hitting people with chairs in the back. Prince
Nana knows how that feels. It happened to me on Wednesday,
Cage: “Big deal, HOOK, you beat two guys the other night. I
could beat two guys any day of the week. I could do that
tomorrow. As a matter of fact, let’s do that on Collision.
Any two sloppy Joes in the locker room that want to face me,
come on down.”

“Tony, I wonder if that note that Ruby was reading had
anything to do with this?”
Harley grabbed Ruby and tried to stop Ruby from walking
away. Ruby turned around and decked Harley!
“Ruby Soho finally standing up for herself to Saraya,” said
Willow power bombed a shocked Saraya and pinned her!
After the match Stokely celebrated with both Kris and
Skye Blue appeared in the aisle, smirked, and waved at Kris

“What is going on here?” wondered Excalibur.
The lights came back on, and TBS Champion Julia Hart was
standing beside Skye Blue! They were staring at Willow and
Kris, taunting them as Julia held up her title.
