Welcome guys to this weeks edition of AEW Rampage. We have four matches and one of those involves the star that is Mariah May so let's kick things off with a trios triple threat match as the road the Revolution is beginning to heat up.




MATCH 1: PRIVATE PARTY & MATT SYDAL VS PENTA EL ZERO MIEDO, KOMANDER & BRYAN KEITH VS TOP FLIGHT & ACTION ANDRETTI

 

Dante Martin and Komander are going to kick this one off. Komander with a leg scissor takedown and to the top rope. Komander walks the top rope and hits an arm drag, followed by a cover on Martin for a near fall. Penta with the tag as he pulls off the switchblade and a step-up kick to the face.



Private Party are now in and they double-team on Dante. Dante rebounds with a back spring elbow to them from the ropes. Dante takes down Quen with a big crossbody for a near fall as it’s interrupted by Byron Keith. With a running boot, Keith sent Darius flying outside the ring—Isiah with an over-the-rope tope to crash into everyone. Dante soon follows with one of his own as it’s over Komander and Sydal. Sydal hits the meteora on Komander. Penta follows up and hits Sydal with a fear factor on the apron. Isiah hits a guillotine cutter on Penta. Quen now takes flight as he flies off the top rope to crash into everyone outside the ring. Komander flies over the rope to crash into everyone as Penta hits the fear factor on Sydal to pick up the victory.


 

Here is your Winner: Team Penta

 

Decent opener. A bit all over the place at times and was more about who could do the best dive over the ropes and take out everyone. Top Flights momentum seems to have been stopped already.


 

MATCH 2: YOUNG BUCKS VS JONNY LYONS & CAPPUCCINO JONES

Nick is right at clubbing the back of Lyons as Matt is tagged. Nick clotheslines Lyons as the fans chant for Cappuccino. Cappuccino is tagged as Matt Jackson takes him out. Nick clotheslines Cappuccino as Bucks set him up for the win with the TK driver.


 

Here is your Winner: Young Bucks

 

Squash. That is all

 

Tony Schiavone welcomes Sammy Guevara. Tony asks for Sammy’s thoughts on Don Callis, as it seems obvious Callis has it in for him. Sammy isn’t happy with Will Hobbs messing with his match against Jeff Hardy. Sammy props Hobbs as a big man and feels Hobbs doesn’t need Callis. In the meantime, Sammy wants Hobbs to come out as he’s done talking and wants to fight. Callis comes out and calls Sammy weak and a pathetic little c*ck! Hobbs tries attacking Sammy from behind but gets superkicked outside the ring. Sammy follows up with a chair to Hobbs’s spine. The action goes back inside the ring, where Sammy tries to pick him up, but Hobbs reverses it with a clothesline. Hobbs follows it up with a couple of spine-busters and the world’s most dangerous slam to end this unofficial match, as this was a brawl


 


MATCH 3: MARIAH MAY VS ANNA JAY

 

Lockup to begin as Anna hits a neckbreaker. Mariah with a right hand to the face, followed by an overhead double chop. Anna counters with a big kick followed by a toss. Lateral press follows as Anna gets a near fall. Mariah with a backslide pin attempt as Anna rolls through. Mariah follows up with a knee to the face as Anna tries going for the queen slayer, but Mariah backs her into the corner to break free. It works as Mariah hits a vertical hurricana but misses a hip attack. Anna hits a backbreaker as Mariah barely kicks out. Anna with the queen slayer as Mariah bites on Anna’s forearm to break free and hit the Mayday for victory.




Winner:Mariah May


 

Anna Jay has improved so much but Mariah May is a star in the making. Solid match from both women and they worked very well together.

 

 

MATCH 4: JAKE HAGER VS RODERICK STRONG

 

Shove by Roderick Strong. A chop to the chest follows as Hager no sells it to send Strong running outside the ring. Back inside, Strong tries for another chop, but Hager catches it and sends him flying across the ring. Strong heads outside again, but Hager catches and tosses him back inside. Strong catches Hager between the ropes. Hager regroups to dig his knee into the face of Strong as we head into a break.



We are back as Hornsby, the mascot who came out with Hager, catches the attention of Mike Bennett and Matt Taven. The duo is about to attack him when Orange Cassidy comes out for the save. Cassidy pounces on them and throws Hager’s purple hat into the ring. Hager puts it on and seems to have hulked up as he puts Strong in a Hager bomb for a near fall. Hager with an inverted powerbomb and them locks in the ankle lock. Strong tries to get to the ropes as Cassidy is tossed into the ring. Strong with a knee strike to the face of Hager and this one is over.


 

Here is your Winner:Roderick Strong

 

A very strange choice for main event. Hager is now in this storyline with Strong and Cassidy for some reason but loses the first match he has. Talk about a momentum killer. Still very ready for Strong to take the title from Cassidy tho.

 

Thanks for joining me this week. See you next week guys
