  • rampage begins with ROH World Champion Claudio Castagnoli and ROH Pure Champion Wheeler Yuta making their entrance into the ring. Claudio yells at Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat in the front row. He offers an open challenge for next week. Dustin Rhodes comes out and takes on the challenge. Both men know how much it burns when people say you’re never good enough to be a world champion. Claudio takes on the challenge for next week rampage.
  • Ruby Soho and Ortiz are interviewed backstage. They want a piece of Sammy Guevara and Tay Melo next week.
  • Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland beat Private Party to keep the AEW tag team titles. Lee dominated Private Party with power moves while in the ring. Private Party got bump after bump from Lee, but refused to stay put. Strickland then came in and tucked them away with the JML Driver in front of the pin. The two teams showed respect for each other after the fight.
  • Powerhouse Hobbs finds QT Marshall and The Factory backstage and throws them over the table they’re sitting at. Marshall swears that his men will take out Ricky Starks and Hobbs walks away.
  • Zack Clayton comes out and talks about West Virginia. HOOK is next door to defend the FTW title against him.
  • HOOK beats Zack Clayton to keep the FTW Championship. Clayton swings and misses, falling victim to the redrum for the instant choking finish.
  • “Daddy Magic” Matt Menard & “Cool Hand Ang” Angelo Parker are backstage, saying it’s time for the FTW title for a sports entertainer.
  • Daddy Ass is interviewed backstage. He says his Ass Boys have opened the door for him to bang their asses next week. He ends the interview by trimming The Acclaimed.
  • HOOK’s title defense was so quick that Buddy Matthews (with Julia Hart) is now out for a standby match.
  • Buddy Matthews beats Serpentico. Matthews quickly defeats him as commentary whips up next week’s Trios Tournament match between Dark Order and House of Black.
  • Miro comes out after the Malakai Black mask match. Miro rushes toward Matthews and beats him up. He lies in repeated punches and stamps in the corner. Buddy hits him, so Miro kicks his head off.
  • Britt Baker is interviewed backstage and says ThunderStorm is a shit show. She says Thunder Rosa knows she can’t beat Toni Storm, which is the only reason Rosa decided to team up with her. Baker will follow their game from the sidelines on Everything out.
  • Athena defeats Penelope Ford. Kip Sabian (with the box over his head) sits in the audience cheering his wife on, which the commentators bring to their attention. Nevertheless, Athena pins Ford as a tune-up for a future match with Jade Cargill. Then The Baddies attack Athena. Cargill comes down with a sledgehammer and destroys Athena’s wings; Athena is forced to watch from the ring. Athena eventually breaks their hold, but Cargill nails her into her stomach with the sledgehammer.
  • Billy Gunn takes on his son Colten Dynamite next week.
  • Mark Henry interviews The Trustbusters and Orange Cassidy & Best Friends for their main event match. Henry and Cassidy argue over whose line it is to say it’s time for the main event.
  • Orange Cassidy & Best Friends beat The Trustbusters (Ari Daivari, Parker Boudreaux, Slim J) to advance to the next round in the Trios Title Tournament. Boudreaux showed his strength and smashed all three baby faces in quick succession. But the numbers game caught on with him, and they knocked him out of the ring with a triple drop kick. Slim J and Daivari couldn’t handle the Best Friends, but Boudreaux came back into the mix. Beretta impaled Parker in a barricade and Cassidy sent him over it with an Orange Punch. Sonny Kiss tripped Cassidy on the top rope. Kiss went to find Boudreaux, but Danhausen showed up to cast a curse. The babyfaces tripped into the ring along with Slim J, launching Orange Cassidy into the air for a splash and win.
  • That’s the end of the show, folks!
