Lineups for the next AEW Rampage and AEW Dynamite

That’s all she wrote, ladies and gents. Another AEW Dynamite is in the books, and what an evening it was! We saw Jeff Hardy’s return, Sting make a comeback and drop Cody Rhodes’s name, and The Elite returning (minus Adam Page) in an attempt to take out The Blackpool Combat Club.

All this, and we still have plenty of action to look forward to over the next week in AEW. The card for this Friday’s AEW Rampage can be seen below:

  • IWGP Tag Team Championships: Aussie Open (c) vs. Best Friends
  • Emi Sakura vs. Taya Valkyrie
  • Jay Briscoe & Jay Lethal vs. Jeff Jarrett & Santam Singh
  • Jungle Boy vs. Shawn Spears

A few matches were also announced for next week’s AEW Dynamite, including:

  • AEW Women’s Champion Jamie Hayter & Britt Baker vs. Ruby Soho & Toni Storm
  • TNT Championship: Powerhouse Hobbs (c) vs. Wardlow
Chris Jericho

Swerve Strickland seals the deal for Jericho

The break had a bit of back and forth, but for the most part, Jericho maintained control and worked over Lee’s head. He even gave the audience the finger and told them to sho*e it! We return to fullscreen with Jericho nailing Lee with elbows to the side of the skull. Lee rushes Jericho in the corner but is hit with another elbow and a missile dropkick.

Lionsault gives him a short two-count as Lee powers out. Off the ropes, Jericho eats a clothesline and a shoulder tackle. Garcia tries to interfere again and causes a distraction. Lee puts in a bear hug, but Jericho escapes. Lee attempts a spirit bomb, but Jericho returns with a roll-up for another two count. Lee runs right through a grazing clothesline and returns with a pounce that shoves Jericho across the ring. Lee with a moonsault from the second rope, but Jericho got his knees up. It seemed to have hurt Jericho’s knee more than it hurt Lee! Keith hits a spinebuster and drives Jericho straight down into the canvas.

Jericho starts going for the walls. He secures it! Lee struggles forward as Garcia yells in his face to submit. Finally, Lee clutches that bottom rope and escapes. Lee with a double-palm strike and a toss that sends “Le Champion” flying. Lee tries for his finisher but Daniel Garcia make his presence known once again. Lee tosses him into the ring and gives both Jericho and Garcia clotheslines. Lee misses a splash in the corner. Jericho tries for a codebreaker, but somehow, Lee turns it into the spirit bomb! But no, Garcia is distracting the official again. Someone with a mask on comes in an nails Lee in the head with the ring bell. It’s Swerve Strickland! JAS celebrates in the ring, but here comes Adam Cole!

Cole consoles Lee on the outside of the ring, giving him a fist bump for the match he put on. Cole hesitates and looks over his shoulder, but doesn’t do the full turn around to face Jericho and Garcia (like Jericho did to Cole couple of week ago.)

Keith Lee

Keith Lee vs. Chris Jericho

Chris Jericho makes his entrance, followed by Lee. Let’s get this main event going, folks!

The crowd sings out, “Oh, bask in his glory!” as Jericho hits Lee with chops. Lee hits back with a shoulder block. He also delivers a light kiss on Jericho’s head to play some mind games. Lee keeps in control with shots in the corner. Jericho returns with his own shots and a series of chops. Lee exchanges with an Irish whip and splashes in both corners. A scoop slam to Jericho comes next, but as Lee tries to follow up by climbing to the top, Daniel Garcia distracts him. It allows Jericho to connect with the springboard triangle dropkick. We’re off to our final break!

Ruby Soho

The Outcasts continue their dominance

During the break, The Outcasts kept control of the bout with Ruby working over Riho with various holds. We go back to fullscreen with Ruby attempting a destination unknown, only to be rolled up for a 2 count. Skye Blue is tagged in and uses a leaping knee off the ropes. Toni Storm had a blind tag, though, and she comes and takes over control of Blue. Skye Blue with various kicks and a leaping hurricanrana to take out all of the outcasts on the outside.

Inside the ring, chaos starts unfolding. Riho uses a crucifix bomb combined with a thrust kick from Skye Blue. Toni comes in and takes advantage, using the corner hip attack and the storm zero for another victory. The Outcasts don’t take the time to celebrate, either. They want to stay on the attack and spray the “L” on Riho’s abdomen. A triple powerbomb follows. But no, here comes Jamie Hayter!

She is swarmed as soon as she takes to the ring. Hayter is getting attacked, which brings out Britt Baker for the save. She takes out Ruby and Toni on the entrance ramp and then runs in to fight Saraya. They struggle for control, with Baker eventually setting her up for the finishing stomp. Saraya is pulled to safety at the last second!

Coming up next, Keith Lee vs. Chris Jericho!

Toni Storm

Riho & Skye Blue vs. Ruby Soho & Toni Storm

Toni Storm and Skye Blue start this one out, with Skye gaining control with a leg scissors and an enziguri. Riho and Ruby are tagged in, with Riho hitting a dropkick off the bat. Ruby stops her with a stomp and a kick to the ribs for a two count. Riho with another dropkick, then tagging in Skye Blue for a tandem attack. Riho climbs up to the top rope and hits a giant splash off the top rope to Ruby and Toni as we head to another break!

Ruby Soho

Time for some women's action

Riho & Skye Blue vs. Ruby Soho & Toni Storm is on the way!

Claudio Castagnoli

Claudio Castagnoli & Jon Moxley vs. Brandon Cutler & Michael Nakazawa

Nakazawa and Cutler don’t even make it to the ring. Just like it occurred last week, BCC cut the men off from the ring and start brutalizing them. Claudio slams Nakazawa’s face against the ring apron until he’s beaten to a bloody pulp. Mox yells to the camera, “Don’t change the channel!” The bell rings and Nakazawa hits Claudio with several forearms and a hard chop, but he’s immediately hit with a clothesline after. Claudio with a fast version of the swing, followed by the sharpshooter.

Cutler runs in, also bloodied up. He tries to punch Claudio but it’s basically ineffective. Claudio attempts a neutralizer on Nakazawa, but he’s hit with a big back body drop. Mox is tagged in, as is Cutler. They trade shots but Mox’s are much more effective. He bites at the wound on Cutler’s forehead! Yucky. A king kong lariat and a death rider set Cutler up for the bulldog choke. Nakazawa interferes though! Claudio takes out Michaels while Mox keeps stomping away at Cutler’s face. The ref stops the match and awards BCC the victory.

Mox gets on the microphone and asks where The Bucks, Hangman Page, and Don Callis are right now. He says they’re a bunch of babies. They put The Elite in AEW.

Kenny Omega is here! The Bucks are back, too! The Elite rush the ring and take out BCC as a collective. The only person still missing is Hangman Page. Omega goes under the ring and pulls out a large tool case. Matt Jackson offers Omega a screwdriver, telling him to gouge out Mox’s eye like they did to Hangman last week. At the last moment, Mox is pulled to safety. The Elite stand tall inside the ring as the segment comes to an end.

Kenny Omega

Okay, for real this time...

Mox & Claudio vs. Cutler and Nakazawa is really coming up next this time!

Kenny Omega is shown on a pre-taped video. He says that the problem BCC has with them, they will take care of it in the ring. One thing Kenny does take personally is them attacking Don Callis and leaving him in a pool of his own blood. Omega says it’s not going to be blood for blood now. When he sees them next, it’s going to be much, much worse than that.

Jeff Hardy

Jeff Hardy returns to save Matt Hardy and Isaiah Kassidy!

Trent and Chuckie T say that Orange Cassidy’s hand will be okay. Trent says he’s on the run of a lifetime! It makes them a bit jealous, so they want to challenge the IWGP Tag Team Champions Aussie Open on Rampage this Friday!

Ethan Page is in the ring and says he’s had some issues with the Forum as of late, but it’s just a rough patch. He recaps what has been going on as of late, especially what is happening with Matt Hardy. Isaiah Kassidy and Matt Hardy come out and say Ethan only played himself. Matt says he should have read the fine print. He did take advantage of Ethan because he’s the biggest h*le in the a*s he knows. In the contract Ethan signed, if he lost to Hook, Matt got to pick the stipulation and location of their next match.

Ethan reminds them that he’s not the only person in the firm. Suddenly, Big Bill and Lee Moriarty come out and start beating down Matt and Isaiah. Hook is here! He runs in and starts making the save, but eventually, the numbers don’t work. Jeff Hardy is here! He makes the save! OMG!

Jon Moxley

The Blackpool Combat Club prepares for destruction

ROH World Champion Claudio Castagnoli & Jon Moxley vs. Brandon Cutler & Michael Nakazawa is up next!

Orange Cassidy

Orange Cassidy powers through his injury

During the picture-in-picture break, Best Friends came down to the ring just to check on Orange’s injury. When it appears he will be able to continue the match, Buddy goes on the attack, using the ring post, steel steps, and ropes to exasperate things. He’s even going as far as to shove Orange’s fingers into the metal connecting pieces of the barricade.

Cassidy tries to fight back. He comes off the top ropes but is caught while elevated. He avoids two attempts at German suplexes, and then runs Buddy’s face back and forth between the turnbuckles. He climbs to the second rope and leaps but eats a superkick on the apron. Orange hits a superkick of his own, but right after, he suffers a knee right to the chin. Cassidy hits back with a beach break on the apron!

The two men nearly get counted out, but right at 9 and 7/8, Buddy and Orange slide in the ring. They trade punches in the center of the ring, with the crowd cheering with each shot from Orange. Buddy returns to the hand and stomps down, forcing screams from Cassidy. Buddy does Orange’s lackadaisical kicks, which Cassidy responds to by weakly putting his hands in his pockets.

Buddy nails him with another knee to the face! Stundog millionaire from Orange! He meets Buddy on the top rope with a forearm strike. A wild avalanche DDT off the ropes follows. He then uses a diving DDT on the outside, and then connects with a jumping DDT to finish him off. But, no! Buddy still somehow kicked out. Buddy with a knee. Orange with an Orange punch! Another close two count. Wow, this one is close as it gets! Buddy tells Orange to finish him with one more punch, but he was playing opossum. He grabs Orange’s hand and gives him a knee. Orange with a mouse trap for the pin out of nowhere! Cassidy retains!

Orange Cassidy

Buddy Matthews vs. Orange Cassidy

Things start off rather slow, with Orange starting to do his signature pockets pose but Buddy breaking it up. Now we’re off! Orange Cassidy with a dejavu headscissors to send Buddy out of the ring. Matthews slides back in, right as Orange gives that pockets pose he was waiting for. He gets knocked down but nips up and delivers a suicide dive with his pockets in his hands. Cassidy with a hurricanrana, followed by a tornado DDT. Orange punch! But it looks like Orange may have hurt his hand when he nailed it.

Cassidy is being checked on by the doctor. Buddy walks right over and stomps on the injured hand! We’re heading to another picture-in-picture break.


Bullet Club Gold has arrived

Going forward, it appears that Bullet Club will be represented in AEW by Juice Robinson and Jay White. They were shown in a backstage promo and said they’re going to take over AEW. They’ll call themselves “Bullet Club Gold.”

Next up is Buddy Matthews challenging Orange Cassidy for the International Championship!


Wardlow destroys Powerhouse Hobbs' new car

We see Powerhouse Hobbs backstage, using a bat and a giant metal stand to destroy the vehicle QT Marshall gifted Powerhouse Hobbs. He sees a forklift nearby and drives it straight into the car. Slowly, it rises until it flips over in the parking lot, and shattered glass goes everywhere.

Hobbs and Marshall take out their anger by setting up Silas Young for a powerbomb off the side of the entrance ramp. Wardlow enters! He’s here! The two Titans collide. A bunch of AEW Dark wrestlers come out and try to stop them, but it’s futile. Wardlow grabs Aaron Solo and uses his powerbomb through a set of tables.


Powerhouse Hobbs vs. Silas Young

Hobbs gets his flashy entrance, but Silas Young didn’t get a televised intro. Hobbs hits a running shoulder tackle and his signature spinebuster. Hobbs hits his finisher for the squash victory.


Sting proclaims that Darby Allin will be AEW World Champion

Sting calls out to the crowd, getting a deafening reaction. He asks Max what all the daddy daycare stuff has been about lately cause he sees himself as more of a cheerleader than a daycare. Sting pulls an SNL quote and says he’s got a fever, and the only answer is more pom poms. He says he’ll shut up about everything regarding the “Cody” daycare stuff.

He makes a shocked face because he mentioned Cody. He says MJF was just like Darby with Sting because he had a supporter in Cody Rhodes. For Sting, the same thing happened with Ric Flair. Sting looks back on highlights of his career, saying he still has a bit of joker left. Sting says he no longer has the hunger for the AEW World Title. Sting says his career is almost over, but showtime is just starting for Darby Allin. Sting says to mark his words: “Darby Allin will become AEW’s World Champion!”

Darby says the fake, plastic world will not take him alive. He’ll end MJF’s reign of terror and become the next AEW World Champion. MJF spits in Darby’s face and books it to the back. Classic a-hole.


Sting is back!

MJF tells the audience he’s holding the microphone, so they must shut up. Friedman says it was an incredible match between Darby and Swerve, especially considering his daddy, Sting, wasn’t out there. MJF recalls their Full Gear match from 2021, saying it was one of the greatest matches in pro wrestling. He says Darby might just be a little emo kid, but he may be one of the greatest men he’s ever been in the ring with. MJF says two words make him better: headlock takeover. He says Darby could never take his belt after he beat him with a headlock takeover.

Darby asks MJF if anything he’s done actually made him happy. Darby says that he doesn’t focus on the material things like MJF does – he made it to national television and wanted to figure out what truly mattered. He went to therapy and realized that making his family happy and providing is what matters to him, so he bought his mom a house and helped his dad retire. Additionally, Sting is his best friend.

MJF says Darby is just a little boy. He’s so tired of Darby and Jungle Boy and Sammy Guevara talking about his morals because morals are what ends up killing careers in pro wrestling. He says he doesn’t care if nobody is there next to him on his deathbed, and he doesn’t care if he goes to hell as long as he has the AEW World Title. That’s what will separate him from the other three pillars. MJF says he will do anything he has to so he’ll be known as “The greatest of all time.” While Darby, according to MJF, will be Sting’s bitch.

Here comes Sting!


MJF is coming up next!

Oh yes, after a break, Maxwell Jacob Friedman will be gracing our ears with another promo!

Darby Allin

Darby Allin pulls out the victory

During the commercial, Swerve maintained control, using moves like a backbreaker and a seated gut-wrench to work on Darby’s abdomen. Darby makes it to his feet and brings Swerve into the corner. Strickland rolls through and hits a flat liner to stun Darby. He attempts to climb to the top rope, but Darby stops him before he can act. He then takes Swerve’s boot and bites his foot! What was that?!

Darby secures a kneebar on Swerve in the center of the ring. He eventually rolls through and attempts a German suplex. Darby evades it and the two start trading hard shots. Darby goes for a springboard coffin drop but is caught in an emphatic German. Allin eventually returns to the kneebar, focusing on the fact that Swerve is bootless at the moment. Strickland makes it to the bottom rope, prompting Darby to climb up to the top rope. Darby ends up on Swerve’s shoulders on the apron and hits a reverse hurricanrana off the apron! That was wild!

Darby hits the coffin drop, but no, The Embassy is interfering and saves Swerver by putting his foot on the rope. Darby confronts them but realizes he may get counted out. He rushes back to the ring and gets hit with a switch kick and the coup de grace for a CLOSE two count. Swerve tweaked his knee as he landed and lost precious seconds! Brian Cage interferes again, which forces Aubrey Edwards to eject them from ringside. Darby with a code red out of nowhere! Another 2 and 7/8. Darby with the last supper for the 3 count!

Darby Allin

Darby Allin vs. Swerve Strickland

The bell rings and Darby and Swerve come face to face. Darby with a quick stundog millionaire, followed by a torpedo suicide dive through the ropes. He’s already trying for the coffin drop but has to pivot to a swanton outside the ring as Swerve attempts to escape. Strickland pulls Darby’s leg out from under him on the ring apron. He follows that up with a body slam and a stomp to the back, all on the floor. Darby uses the ringside barricade to his advantage and then pulls apart the ring steps.

Again, Swerve pulls his weight out from under him, forcing Darby’s back into the steps. He then drags him down, slaps him in the face, and then goes for the cover, but Darby kicks out at two. Swerve pulls off Darby’s belt and whips it with him over and over. Allin comes back with several punches and a splash in the corner. Swerve avoids one and hits a backheel kick for another two counts. This one is getting intense; Swerve uses Darby’s neck chain to choke him.

Allin pulls himself up on the ring apron, trying to regain momentum. But Swerve reverses, using a double stomp as Darby hangs off the bottom rope. We’re headed to a picture-in-picture break!


Here we gooooo!

I’m ready for some pro wrestling! Aren’t y’all?! AEW Dynamite is starting now! Excalibur welcomes us to the show as the pyro explodes.

Right away, we’re getting Darby Allin coming down for his match against Swerve Strickland

CM Punk

CM Punk trolls Jon Moxley on his Instagram

CM Punk is a hot topic today; with it, he’s having a bit of fun online. Punk’s Instagram story earlier today featured a photoshopped image of his face on the body of Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky. This appears to be in reference to the now-deleted Instagram story Punk posted, where he revealed Moxley’s idea for the outcome of their feud to resemble Rocky III.

Punk also posted a picture of a Bingo hall with balloons spelling “WELCOME” underneath a scoreboard. It’s unclear exactly what he meant, but reports emerged earlier today that indicated Punk is open to returning to pro wrestling in any capacity, even if it’s not AEW. Could we see Punk returning to the independent wrestling scene soon?!

Vickie Guerrero

Vickie Guerrero posts new Instagram message about daughter's sexual assault claims

Despite the surrounding controversy and opposing opinions from others in their family, Kris and Vickie (Guerrero) Benson are standing by their denial of Sherilyn Guerrero’s claims of sexual assault from her stepfather. Earlier today, Vickie posted the following message to her Instagram page:

Kris and Vickie Benson vehemently deny Sherilyn Guerrero’s recent allegations of sexual assault and abandonment. Ms. Guerrero’s unsubstantiated accustations have caused the Bensons to suffer public ridicule, scorn, derision, and humiliation. Kris and Vickie fully appreciate the seriousness of allegations of this nature and the need for public support of sexual assault survivors: however, they ask that you withhold final judgment on this matter until they have an opportunity to bring Ms. Guerrero and her claims into a court of law where judgment is based on facts and merit.

Santos Escobar

Santos Escobar explains what reviving the LWO means to him

A few weeks back on SmackDown, Rey Mysterio joined forces with Legado del Fantasma’s Santos Escobar, Zelina Vega, Joaquin Wilde, & Cruz Del Toro to create a new version of the LWO – the Latino World Order stable, first formed by the late, great Eddie Guerrero back in WCW days.

On today’s episode of The Bump, Escobar stopped by to discuss the impact of bringing back the LWO faction to WWE and beyond.

I told y’all, it’s time. It’s time for the latinos to rise! You know what I mean? Like, politically, socially, demographically, culturally. Music, movies, entertainment – everywhere. We are everywhere, and yes, we are paying homage to the previous LWO. Of course, and we want to make Eddie proud. But this is a whole new, different animal. Rey, myself, Legado del Fantasma representing all my Latinos in the world.”

Jim Cornette

Jim Cornette rips Malakai Black for lack of charisma

Jim Cornette is a polarizing personality in the world of professional wrestling, but for those that follow the longtime veteran’s tirades, Cornette has a new take on the AEW faction, The House of Black. Still, at least some aspects of the group are salvageable, according to Cornetter.

“I will make two comments, one Julia Hart, what a f*cking look. I wish she wasn’t with the House of Black because they are the sh*ts as a group, but Julia Hart looks like a star. Poor Buddy, as we mentioned, as a heel with a gimmick and as a manager, you could make a fortune with that guy, because he’s athletic and looks great … And he is stuck with Malakai Black, who apparently they named him that because he’s a black hole of charisma. He not only has none, but he sucks the charisma from those around him.”

Bronson Reed

Bronson Reed is ready for some more of Bobby Lashley

This past Monday on WWE Raw, Bronson Reed and Bobby Lashley clashed in a battle of the titans, but neither man emerged victorious after the chaos spilled to the outside of the ring. Reed and Lashley were counted out, and when referees and producers tried to break them up, Lashley kept running back for more of Reed.

Earlier today, Bronson was a guest on WWE’s The Bump, and during his visit, he commented on how he presents a unique challenge for “The AllmIghty.”

Most people can’t do these sorts of things to me. I think that’s what makes Bronson Reed vs. Bobby Lashley such a spectacle. We’re going to do things to each other that no one else can do. You know, I’ve never been picked up like that for a spinebuster in my whole career. But I know that he hasn’t been tested like he’s been tested with me, as well. Who else, as I was saying, is this wide and he can’t put the Hurt Lock on? You know, I’ve got Mount Rushomre on my back here. It’s not happening.”

Rey Mysterio

Did Rey Mysterio and Jennifer Anniston once date?

Back in May 1999, an episode of WWE Raw reached over 8 million live viewers, proving just how impactful the sport once was during the Attitude Era. It even led to certain rumors starting between WWE superstars and popular celebrities, such as Jennifer Anniston.

A couple of years earlier, in ’97, Rey Mysterio was rumored to be dating Anniston, who was starring in the popular sitcom “Friends” at the time. However, in a new interview with Impaulsive, Rey cleared the air and said it was just some random headline the papers wanted to run with.

“I like having my privacy man, and I’m very low key, you know. And when I chill with my family, I don’t like to get mugged or be signing sh*t. Like even when I vacation a lot, I get mobbed sometimes so much by the staff of the hotel, and the hotel is taking care of us, but sometimes it gets a little too much. Which I don’t mind when I’m working, but when I’m on my time off, [I do].”

CM Punk

CM Punk open to returning to wrestling outside of AEW

Discussion surrounding CM Punk has been abundant today, with confirmation from those close to him that Punk is ready to return to professional wrestling. And though most fans would expect that to mean he might be back in AEW soon, a new report from Fightful indicates that his comeback could be under a new company banner. Apparently, Punk is open to working elsewhere if things with AEW aren’t sorted out properly.

Things with Punk began taking a turn for the worse during the 2022 post-AEW All Out media scrum when he badmouthed fellow AEW employees. This reportedly ended up in a legitimate backstage fight between members of The Elite, CM Punk, and his former coach, Ace Steel.

Elsewhere in the news, there’s been a lot of buzz today about CM Punk’s views on returning to All Elite Wrestling. According to his good friend, FTR’s Dax Harwood, Punk wants to come back and misses wrestling in front of the fans. Another report indicated that Punk is even open to working with The Elite when he returns to play off the real-life backstage drama between them that was previously reported.

On the WWE end of things, it appears a confrontation between Gunther and Brock Lesnar may come as early as this Summer. You can read more about that story here.
