AEW Rampage (3/4/2022)

It’s Friday, and you know what that means! The final AEW show before the Revolution payperview is here, and did the show deliver as per usual. Let’s not waste any more time and dive right into Rampage with the opening contest, which was…

Match 1: Triple Threat Match for the TNT Championship; Sammy Guevara (c) vs Darby Allin vs Andrade El Idolo. (Rating:3.75/5)

An amazing opener that not only made the champion look as phenomenal as per usual but it also made Darby and Andrade like top contenders and possible future TNT champions in their own right. Not a single moment in this match felt boring. Andrade dominated, Darby put his body on the line and Sammy being the opportunist that he is took advantage on a prone Andrade after Allin hit the Coffin Drop, nearly securing the victory before Guevara saved his championship in milliseconds. Sammy pins Andrade for the three count as he retained his title and possibly signifying that his friendly rivalry with Allin is far from over.

Segment 1: House of Black versus Death Triangle?!

Well, okay maybe it isn’t the actual Death Triangle in its entirety. Anyways, Pentagon Dark and PAC were out there in the ring cutting a promo on Malakai Black, Brody King and Buddy Matthews about how the war that’s been going on these past several weeks is far from over. The House later comes out and surround the ring and it looked as if they had the numbers advantage until ERICK REDBEARD (formerly known as Erick Rowen in WWE) comes out to even the odds; attack the House of Black and eventually security guards. I really hope this isn’t yet another one off appearance by Redbeard and he becomes a regular/active member of the AEW roster.

Main Event: Face of the Revolution Ladder Match Qualifier; Ethan Page vs Christian Cage. (Rating:3.5/5)

It’s felt like a while since Christian Cage’s been wrestling on AEW television, and even with being away from the ring for several weeks he still managed to put on instant classic performances. Seeing Cage wrestle against these younger wrestlers that are in their prime is truly impressive due to him not seeming like he has any ring rust, or in other words he still seems absolutely fluid in the ring. After a counter out of an electric chair, Christian nails Page with a Killswitch for the pinfall victory: earning him the final spot in the Revolution ladder match.

Final rating: 3.75/5
