Tonight’s AEW RAMPAGE was broadcast from the Broadmoor World Arena in Colorado Springs, CO!
Your broadcast team was Excalibur, Tony Schiavone, and Jim Ross.
It’s Friday night and you know what that means!
Bandido, Penta El Zero Miedo, & Rey Fenix vs. Big Bill, Ethan Page, & Lee Moriarty!
“This match was signed before Page’s contract was under control of Matt Hardy,” said Excalibur.
Rey Fenix connected with a dropkick to Ethan Page. “All Ego” Ethan Page backed up and tagged out to Lee Moriarty. Bandido grabbed a tag and he and Lee traded strikes. Bandido took down Lee with a tornillo.
“What a pace,” said Jim Ross.
Big Bill and Penta El Zero Miedo squared off. Penta chopped down a chokeslam attempt from Big Bill. Penta El Zero Miedo kicked at Big Bill’s quads. Big Bill charged at Penta, but Penta ducked, sending Big Bill crashing over the top rope. Penta tried for a tope, but Big Bill countered with a massive right hand!
Bandido took flight but Big Bill’s strength was too overwhelming. Big Bill caught Bandido in the chin with a big boot. Ethan Page tagged in and powerslammed Bandido for a near fall.
“That was a really good cover,” said Jim Ross.
The Lucha Bros worked together to deliver stereo thrust kicks to Big Bill. Penta smashed Page with the Made in Japan for a two-count. Fenix walked the tight rope and punted Page in the face. Fenix dished out a cutter to Moriarty. The Lucha Bros hit the Fear Factor on the apron on Lee Moriarty!
The Hardys and Brother Zay walked onto the ramp. Jeff Hardy said he gave Ethan Page two good luck gifts. Jeff encouraged Page to use them. So, Ethan reluctantly rolled up his Jeff Hardy-style sleeves but as he was doing so, Bandido served up the 21 Plex and pinned Ethan Page!
Powerhouse Hobbs (with the QTV Crew) vs. Caleb Crush!
Hobbs clubbed Caleb with a running lariat.
“Hobbs is looking to make an impression here tonight ahead of the debut of Collision,” said Excalibur.
Hobbs planted Caleb with the spinebuster and pinned him!
“Powerhouse Hobbs with June 17th circled on his calendar,” added Excalibur.
Renee Paquette was backstage with the TNT champion Wardlow and Arn Anderson!
Arn: “Brock will be fine. He’s a tough kid. He’s a tough man. Christian, you and the giant lizard, you decided you’d send me a message. You made one mistake. You should have finished it. What goes around, comes around.”
Wardlow: “When you disrespect Wardlow and Arn Anderson, it comes at a cost. This Wednesday, I have an open challenge with a man I’m very familiar with. I’m going to have to beat Hager one more time. And once that’s done, Christian and Luchasaurus, your days are numbered.”
The Acclaimed—Anthony Bowens & Max Caster, & Daddy Ass
The Spanish Announce Project—Angelico, Luther, & Serpentico!
Angelico and Anthony Bowens began the match for their respective teams. Bowens used mind games to lure Angelico in.
“Angelico is not a competitor you can afford to take lightly,” said Excalibur.
Bowens hit a dropkick on Angelico. Serpentico tagged himself in. The Acclaimed used tandem offense on Serpentico. Caster used an atomic drop and then a Manhattan drop.
Bowens dropped the Scissor Me Timbers on Angelico. Serpentico entered the fray and ate a right hand from Daddy Ass. Luther jumped in and Daddy Ass clobbered him with repeated shots.
Bowens nailed Luther with the Arrival. Caster took to the skies and finished Luther off with the Mic Drop, good for the pin!
On the ramp, Renee Paquette introduced Jeff Jarrett, Karen Jarrett, Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt, and Satnam Singh!
Karen: “I heard AEW’s dramatic diva is in the building. And she started something last week that I’m here to finish right now. So, Aubrey Edwards get your butt out here right now!”
Mark Briscoe and Aubrey Edwards walked onto the ramp!
Aubrey: “Look, Karen, despite my best efforts, AEW will not sanction a match between you and me. If I see you in catering or I catch you interfering in one of your husband’s matches, I’m going to kick your ass!”
Mark: “Simmer down, Karen Jarrett. Aubrey, I had some conversations with important men in high places. And you’re correct, they won’t sanction a match between you and Karen. But the good news is they will sanction some mixed tag team action. Let me be more specific. Some mixed trios tag team action!”
Sonjay Dutt said he had Jeff and Karen Jarrett and Jay Lethal, but that left Mark and Aubrey short one person. Mark Briscoe and Aubrey Edwards revealed that they had Papa Briscoe as their third team member!
