AEW RAMPAGE: FYTER FEST RESULTS (7/15/2022)
This week’s special Fyter Fest edition of AEW Rampage on TNT kicks off with the usual “This is Rampage, baby!” theme song and opening video and then we shoot inside the arena in Savannah, GA. where the commentary team welcomes us to the show.
The Dark Order vs. The House Of Black
From there, we head down to the ring for our first match of the evening, which will be contested in the AEW tag-team division.
In the ring are the two teams that will be competing against each other, as The Dark Order’s John Silver and Alex Reynolds are on one side of the ring, while The House of Black’s Malakai Black and Brody King are standing on the other.
The bell sounds and we’re off-and-running with this opening tag-team contest. Reynolds and King kick things off for their respective teams, as this one officially gets underway.
King fares well early on, but then the fast-paced, hgih flying style of Reynolds helps take over for The Dark Order. Malakai tags in and he too struggles with the pace set by Reynolds.
The commentators talk about Julia Hart now being aligned with The House of Black and how she seems more comfortable as part of the group now. Malakai hits a low blow on Reynolds that shifts the momentum back in the favor of The House of Black.
King tags back in and John Silver calls for the tag on his end. He gets it. Chris Jericho, who is on commentary, jokes about The Dark Order member on the broadcast. We then head to a mid-match commercial break as the action continues.
We return from the break and see Malakai taking it to Reynolds. Reynolds starts to make a comeback and then tags in Silver. The two hit some double-team offense and Silver settles into the offensive lead with Malakai.
All four men end up involved and then we see things shift into the favor of The House of Black. We then see King finish things off and score the pin fall victory. Good opener.
Winners: Malakai Black & Brody King
Darby Allin & Sting Attack The House Of Black
Once the match wraps up, we see Darby Allin leap off the top of the entrance tunnel like a bat, splashing onto The House of Black members. Sting then runs out.
As Darby and Brody duke it out, we see Malalai and Sting fiercely stare each other down.
Miro Sent For Or Recruited?
We move to a message from “The Redeemer” Miro, who asks The House of Black if they sent for him or are trying to recruit him. We then head to another commercial break.
Lee Moriarty vs. Jonathan Gresham (C)
We return from the break to Caprice Coleman joining the gang on commentary for this ROH Championship contest.
Lee Moriarty makes his way out to the introduction by the ROH ring announcer. He is accompanied by Matt Sydal. He settles in the ring.
Now the theme for the champ hits and out comes Jonathan Gresham accompanied by Tully Blanchard and members of Tully Blanchard Enterprises.
The bell sounds and it’s time for one-on-one championship action here at night two of AEW Fyter Fest 2022.
We see the code of honor upheld as they shake hands at the onset, but then minutes later, when the ref isn’t looking we see Gresham bop Moriarty with a blatant low blow.
As Gresham settles into the offensive lead, we head to a mid-match commercial break as the action continues. We return from the break to Moriarty in the midst of a fired up comeback on offense.
We see Moriarty nearly pull off the win on a few pin attempts, however Gresham ultimately manages to hang on. Gresham ends up getting his Octopus finisher for the win.
Winner and STILL ROH Champion: Jonathan Gresham
After The Match: Claudio Castagnoli With Designs On ROH Title?
After the match, Gresham gets on the mic for a quick post-bout interview in the ring with Tony Schiavone.
Tully Blanchard sings his praises too and then they are interrupted by Claudio Castagnoli, who comes out as Excalibur speculates that he has his sights set on the ROH Championship
Christopher Daniels With Message For Jay Lethal
We also see a promo backstage from Christopher Daniels and he talks about how Samoa Joe is going to choke out Jay Lethal at ROH Death Before Dishonor. He says he may slap him first.
Kris Statlander & Athena vs. Charlotte & Robyn Renegade
We return inside the arena where Kris Statlander’s music hits. She comes out and stops and is joined by “The Fallen Goddess” Athena. The two head to the ring.
Already in the ring are their opponents — Charlotte and Robyn Renegade. The twin team are ready for action in the women’s tag-team division.
The bell sounds after some pre-match action that sees Athena and Statlander dominating. Athena continues to dominate after the bell and she heads to the top-rope. She connects with a stunner off the top for the quick pin fall victory.
Winners: Kris Statlander & Athena
Jade Cargill & Kiera Hogan Take Out Athena & Kris Statlander
Once the match wraps up, we see Leila Gray of The Baddies hit the ring only for Athena and Statlander to beat her down.
Jade Cargill and Kiera Hogan then run out and lay out Athena and Statlander. They head to the back with Stokely Hathaway and then we head to a commercial break.
The Acclaimed Takes Out Billy Gunn & The Gunn Club
We return from the break to Billy Gunn and The Gunn Club settling in the ring for an interview segment. Billy talks about treating The Acclaimed better than his own kids until the time came for daddy ass to drop the hammer.
The Acclaimed’s theme hits and out comes Max Caster and Anthony Bowens. They hit the ring and Billy steps in between both teams and says he knows how to handle this.
He says everyone in the building wants to see it one more time and then they can go their separate ways. He says, “Scissor me daddy ass!” Instead, Bowens lands a big super kick and Caster follows up with a big shot of his own.
A brawl breaks out and The Acclaimed clears the ring of them. Caster then gets on the mic and does some diss rhymes about Billy Gunn and The Gunn Club. Bowens takes the mic and does his “Savannah!!” yell and then asks if they want to see The Acclaimed beat The Gunn Club right now, “let me hear you say ass boys!”
The fans chant “ass boys!” The Gunn Club gets on the mic and asks if the crowd wants the match right now. They cheer and chant yes and he proudly says no like a true heel.
Private Party vs. The Lucha Bros
It’s main event time — almost.
First, Mark Henry is standing by for the usual pre-main event split-screen interview. On one side we have Private Party and Andrade El Idolo. They bicker a bit and then we hear from Alex Abrahantes and The Lucha Bros on the other side of the screen.
“The World’s Strongest Man” then jumps back in, insisting that “it’s been enough talking, it’s time for tonight’s main event!”
The commentators run down action scheduled for next week’s Fyter Fest nights three and four shows, as well as the ROH Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view. Now we head to the ring for our final match of the evening.
We hear the familiar sounds of Andrade El Idolo’s theme playing and out he comes with Private Party. Isiah Kassidy and Marq Quen head to the ring.
They settle inside the ring and then the familiar sounds of The Lucha Bros theme hits and out they come to a huge pop from the Savannah fans. The bell sounds and we’re off-and-running with our headline bout of the evening.
We see Private Party get things off with a double-team move on Penta, but then in comes Fenix to provide some back-up. The Lucha Bros then hit a double-team spot that sets the crowd on fire. We head to a mid-match commercial break on that note.
As we settle back in from the break, we hear Excalibur remind us that tonight marks the milestone 50th edition of the weekly one-hour AEW on TNT program.
Meanwhile, Private Party are dominating the offense, with Kassidy and Quen taking turns tagging in and out to keep a fresh man on Penta at all times.
Finally, Penta gets close to making the hot tag, knocking Quen’s block off and then eventually making it to his corner to bring Fenix in.
Fenix comes in hot as a pistol and is flying all over the place. Private Party stacks him up for their Gin N Juice finisher off the top. We see mind games played from the heel side with the masks on the babyface side and then Penta gets tagged in and hits a Death Valley Drive in the corner, sandwiching Private Party into each other.
Rush runs out from out of nowhere and gets involved. Regardless, Lucha Bros pick up the win. The show goes off the air with them staring down the heels from the ring.
Winners: The Lucha Bros
