AEW RAMPAGE RESULTS (07/10/2022)
Here we have the usual “It’s Rampage, baby!” theme song and accompanying video package, then we shoot inside the Entertainment & Sports Arena in Washington, DC for the start of tonight’s special live episode of the show.
Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli and Wheeler Yuta against Rush and private party
We hear the familiar sounds of AEW Champion Jon Moxley’s theme song. As “Wild Thing” plays, the paradigm shift leader in the world of professional wrestling steps into the ring, making his personalized entrance through the crowd. He settles inside the ring and his music turns off.
Now we hear the entrance tune from Claudio Castagnoli and the former ROH World Champion makes his way and settles into the squared circle as well. Finally Wheeler Yuta’s music plays and the third and final member of the Blackpool Combat Club heads to the ring.
With the three set up in the ring, we also see Rush and Private Party (Isiah Kassidy & Marq Quen) in the ring. The commentary team of Jim Ross, Excalibur, Chris Jericho and William Regal of Blackpool Combat Club joke amongst themselves as the bell rings to get this one started.
After a few minutes of back and forth, we see Rush and Private Party take the lead, dominating the attack before the commentators send us off to our first mid-match commercial break of the evening as the action heats up. continues in the ring.
We settle back after the break and we see the trio of baby faces start to change momentum in their favor as they start to get the upper hand on offense in this one. Castagnoli ends up as the legal man in the ring and with Quen and Kassidy in the ring, the former WWE Superstar known as Cesaro makes his “Giant Swing” spot over the two members of Private Party. This is getting a huge pop from DC fans
The action settles into the finish, which finally sees the team of Moxley, Castagnoli and Yuta claim victory. After the match is over, Regal is heard thanking JR, Chris Jericho and “the guy in the mask” saying, “Hello gentlemen, that’s it for me!” Jericho fires back at Regal, “What does that mean?!” OK.
Winners: Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli and Wheeler Yuta
The Varsity Blonds vs. Tony Nese and Josh Woods
Now we move on to team action. The Varisty Blonds duo of Brian Pillman Jr. and Griff Garrison head to the ring. And now their opponents are also out, as ‘The Premier Athlete’ Tony Nese and Josh Woods leave accompanied by ‘Smart’ Mark Sterling.
Now the bell rings and we begin our second game of the evening. This one doesn’t last long at all, as Nese and Woods hit a double team finisher for the pinfall win. Only a few minutes left for the game, but the action continues on the microphone once the bell rings for the second time.
Winners: Tony Nese and Josh Woods
After the match: the famous Confront “Smart” Mark Sterling, Nese & Woods
After the match is over and the theme music dies out for the winners, Nese and Woods manager ‘Smart’ Mark Sterling takes the microphone and announces that he trademarked the term ‘Varsity’ after dropping a line from ole’ Junior Soprano in The Sopranos that Tony Soparno “never had the makings of a college athlete”.
The same music video Tony Khan posted on Twitter ahead of the show. Anyway, as he continues to speak, the theme of acclaimed hits and the duet of Max Caster and Anthony Bowens. Caster does a freestyle rap on his way to the ring where he drops a line at the end on NBA star Draymond Green of the Warriors Sucker Punch on Jordan Poole.
Tay Melo & Anna Jay..AS vs. Madison Rayne & Skye Blue
Now is the time for women’s tag team action, as the Jericho Appreciation Society duo of Tay Melo and Anna Jay..AS step out and head to the ring. They settle inside as the wrestling “magician” sings their praises and their music dies down.
Now the theme for their opponents hit and go comes AEW Women’s Division trainer and wrestler Madison Rayne with Skye Blue. The two also make themselves at home inside the squared circle and now the bell rings to get this one started.
After some early back and forth, we’re heading into a mid-game commercial break as Melo and Jay..AS’ side begin to shift the attacking momentum in their favor. As we come back from the break, we see this one work its way to the finish, which sees Anna Jay..AS firing the tap for the win after blocking a game-ending choke.
Winners: Tay Melo and Anna Jay… AS
AEW Trios Tag Team Championship
Triangle of Death (C) vs. Dark Order
We shoot behind the scenes of Mark Henry, who is ready for our weekly split-screen chat before the main event with the contestants who are due to compete for the AEW Trios Tag-Team Championships. ‘World’s Strongest Man’ sends things to the six men, with each three-man team speaking their tune before the WWE Hall of Fame legend and AEW Broadcast Crew member states that he has, in fact, spoken enough and that it is indeed time for the main event of the evening tonight.
The trio of “The Bastard” PAC and The Lucha Bros (Rey Fenix & Penta El Zero Miedo) who are collectively the current AEW Trios Tag-Team Champions, head to the main event of the night here on this special edition. live from AEW Rampage.
The Dark Order challengers, which consist of John Silver, Preston “10” Vance and Alex Reynolds, are also making their way. They also settle inside the ring and their entrance melody dies out. Shortly after, the bell rings and we run off with our last game of the evening.
Commentators note that this is the first of what will be all championship matches to complete the evening, with each fight scheduled for the AEW Battle Of The Belts IV special event following the Rampage live stream, all with on-the-line titles.
After a very fast and hard-hitting attack from all six guys, with some early highlights to get the crowd on their feet in the Entertainment & Sports Arena in Washington, DC, we see The Dark Order trio begin to shoot ahead in head. On that note, we’re heading into a mid-game commercial break as the action continues.
When we return from the break, we see things start to go The Dark Order’s way for a while, with commentators singing the praises of Preston “10” Vance as he puts on a great offensive display. It doesn’t stay that way, however, as the Death Triangle trio begin to take over.
As we head towards the finish, we see the members of the Triangle of Death trying to end this one with Penta for his Fear Factor spot but not logging in. Instead, the trio continues to dominate as RUSH makes its way. He hands the bell hammer to PAC, who ends up using it to knock out one of The Dark Order’s members. He slaps his submission finisher on him and takes the win.
