Tonight’s episode of AEW RAMPAGE was broadcast from the
Mechanics Bank Arena in Bakersfield, CA!

Your broadcast team was Excalibur, Tony Schiavone, and “The
Learning Tree” Chris Jericho (accompanied by Big Bill)!

It’s Friday night and you know what that means!


Rocky Romero vs. “The Bastard” PAC!

Rocky took Pac down with a hurracanrana. Pac stunned Rocky
out of nowhere with a moonsault to the outside!

Pac wore down Rocky with a side headlock. Rocky got to his
feet and he and Pac exchanged strikes, both guys going for
broke. Rocky hit a back heel kick and then the Sliced Bread
for a near fall on Pac.

Rocky stuck Pac with a DDT, nearly bending Pac in half!
Rocky rocketed outside the ring with a tope. Rocky pulled
Pac back into the ring and covered him for a near fall.

Pac avoided a charging Rocky and used Rocky’s momentum to
counter with a German Suplex. Pac applied the Brutalizer and
Rocky tapped out!

The Lucha Brothers and Alex Abrahantes came out to help Pac
celebrate and send a message to the Gunn Club!

Pac: “Gunn Club, whatever hoops you want us to jump through,
no problem. These are the Lucha Brothers, the best tag team
in the world. We’ll see you at Collision.”

“The Lucha Brothers calling out the Gunn Club for tomorrow
night on Collision,” said Excalibur.

Next: Chris Jericho addressed the fans!

Jericho: “I just want to say that at Double Or Nothing I
will have a three-way match for the FTW Title, which is ‘For
The World’ and it’ll be under ‘For The World’ Rules, which
means it’ll be mayhem. And I can’t wait to face HOOK and
Shibata at Double Or Nothing!”

Shibata heard enough and charged down the ramp. Shibata and
Big Bill brawled on the ramp, with Big Bill retreating. HOOK
snuck up through the crowd in the front row and grabbed
Jericho, locking Jericho in the Red Rum!

Samoa Joe vs. Dom Kubrick!

“Daddy Magic” Matt Menard joined the broadcast booth.

Dom tried for a dropkick. Samoa Joe wiped him out with a big
back elbow. Samoa Joe jabbed at Dom. Samoa Joe lit up Dom
with a flurry of shots. Samoa Joe hoisted up Kubrick and
planted him with the Muscle Buster in the center of the
ring! Samoa Joe covered Kubrick and pinned him, making short
work of his opponent.

“A dominant victory for Samoa Joe. Where does he go from
here? We’ll have to wait to find out,” said Excalibur.

Private Party’s Isiah Kassidy vs. Rush!

Rush wasted no time and rammed Kassidy with the Bull’s Horns
twice! Rush grabbed Kassidy and whipped him into the
barricades. Rush grabbed the camera cable and clobbered
Kassidy with it. Rush pulled Kassidy back into the ring and
continued to toy with Kassidy.

Kassidy tried to rally back with a tope. Kassidy planted
Rush for a two-count. Kassidy climbed to the top and
splashed Rush with a Swanton for a near fall!

“What a comeback,” said Schiavone.

Rush headbutted Kassidy and Kassidy crumbled to the mat.
Rush and Kassidy traded chops on the apron. Kassidy charged
at Rush, but Rush used Kassidy’s momentum and suplexed him
from the apron and down onto the arena floor! Rush finished
Kassidy with the Bull’s Horns and pinned Kassidy!

“Isiah put up a hell of a fight tonight, but Rush was just
too much,” said Excalibur.

Rampage Main Event Time!
Alex Windsor & Anna Jay
TBS Champion Willow Nightingale & Kris Statlander (with
Stokely Hathaway)!

Statlander grabbed Windsor and body slammed her. Willow
tagged in and hit a cross body on Windsor. Willow followed
up with a suplex. Willow hit the pounce on Windsor!

Statlander tagged in and splashed Anna Jay with a standing
moonsault press. Statlander took down Anna with a suplex.
Anna Jay retaliated with a draping neck breaker across the
ropes. Anna Jay rammed Kris into the steel ring steps.

Windsor tagged in and rocked Kris with a knee strike.
Windsor chopped Kris down with kicks. Kris rallied back with
a deadlift German Suplex and tagged Willow.

Willow clobbered Anna Jay in the corner with a lariat.
Willow planted Anna Jay with a spinebuster for a near fall.
Anna nailed Willow with a jawbreaker. Willow went for the
cannonball splash, but Anna dodged it!

Windsor connected with a shining wizard on Willow for a near
fall. Statlander dropped Anna Jay with a high roundhouse
kick. Willow finished off Windsor with the Doctor Bomb and
scored the pin!

“That’s how you want to go into the pay-per-view,” said Matt

After the match, “The CEO” Mercedes Moné charged to the
ring! Kris grabbed Mercedes but Mercedes escaped. Willow and
Mercedes began to brawl with one another until security
separated them!

Mercedes grabbed the TBS Championship and held it overhead
while Stokely pulled Willow and Kris out of the ring,
holding them back.
