Rampage kicked off with The Acclaimed and Daddy Ass taking on La Faccion Ingobernable’s Rush, Dralistico & Preston Vance. Jose the Assitant got involved in the match and got a Scissor Me Timbers for his involvement. Acclaimed went on to win the match as they have all their recent matches, with The Arrival and the Mic Drop. After the match, Bowens got on the mic and seemed to challenge House of Black but without overtly doing so. Excalibur then said that “we know” there is a House of Black Open House Rules match scheduled for Double or Nothing but that had not been announced prior to tonight.
Page & Gunns
The Gunns and Ethan Page faced two opponents that were somehow never named. Not by the on-screen chyron, not by Justin Roberts nor by the announce team. Jericho at the end finally said he was pulling for “Watson” which upon a quick Google search revealed the team was “Frescomatic, Watson & Jeaux Braxton”. Page then got on the mic and said that they’re a real team, unlike The Hardys, and pointed out they took out Isiah and it would be 2v3 at the PPV. The Hardys came out and reminded us that a contract stipulation was involved in this match. Brother Zay came out, barely able to speak, and said that he wasn’t cleared but he found a replacement. Hook then came out and the four chased off The Gunns & Page.
Dustin Rhodes and Keith Lee were interviewed backstage where Lexy Nair announced that Swerve Stickland and Brian Cage were officially entering the AEW International Championship Blackjack Battle Royal. Rhodes said that he and Lee were entering as well and a graphic appeared on screen with what appeared to be all of the competitors in the match:
Shida & Baker
Dr. Britt Baker & Hikaru Shida took on Nyla Rose & Marina Shafir. The faces picked up the win when Shida hit the Katana and then Baker applied the Lockjaw for the submission victory. After the match, The Outcasts appeared on the screen and they had just laid out Jamie Hayter. The faces ran to the back as the show went to commercial.
Main Event: Lee Moriarty & Big Bill vs. Best Friends
Before the match began, a large number of participants in the Blackjack Battle Royal were shown watching on from the crowd. Big Bill & Lee Moriarty picked up the win when Bill chokeslammed Chuck Taylor for the victory. After the match, a brawl ensued with all of the participants of the battle royal until Orange Cassidy ran out and came to the aid of Best Friends. Then Brian Cage came out immediately followed by Keith Lee and Dustin Rhodes who all then joined the brawl. Swerve was the last one out who simply posed on the stage as the show went off the air only to be chased off by Keith Lee.
