AEW RAMPAGE RESULTS (1/13/2023)
The usual “This is Rampage, baby!” theme song plays along with the regular accompanying opening video package. We then shoot inside the Kia Forum in Los Angeles, CA. where the commentators welcome us to the show.
Darby Allin (C) vs. Juice Robinson
We hear Jim Ross, Excalibur, Tony Schiavone and Chris Jericho on commentary as the two competitors involved in our opening contest are already inside the ring ready for action.
The bell sounds and it’s time for this TNT Championship showdown between Darby Allin and Juice Robinson. We see Robinson faring well early on, taking it to Allin and grounding the champ.
We see a sit-out senton and then the offensive momentum switches to the champ, with Allin slapping a solid side head-lock on the challenger, which he squeezes down on with all of his might.
Allin hits some nice Ricky Steamboat-style deep arm-drags to take Robinson down to the mat. A big back-body drop from Robinson ends up sending Allin out to the floor. The commentators speculate that the knee and possibly lower-back of Allin’s was damaged on the fall.
Chris Jericho points out the new ringside barricades that debuted on Rampage this week right after Robinson slams Allin into them over and over again. He taunts the crowd before rolling back into the ring to break the referee’s count.
Darby is slow to get up, so Robinson heads back out to the floor and continues to beat him down at ringside. He hoists him up and slams him down ribs and forearm-first on the steel ring steps.
As Robinson taunts the crowd again with a middle rope double biceps pose, we head to a mid-match commercial break as the Rampage opener continues. When we return, we see Allin in the midst of a fired-up offensive comeback.
He hits a crazy drop-kick that slings Juice into the corner. As he rolls out to the floor to recover, Allin builds up a full head of steam and splashes on him after diving through the ropes. Once the action resumes back inside the ring, we see Robinson shifting the momentum back into his favor.
We see Juice dominate for a few more minutes and then Allin fires up and takes over. He hits a big Code Red coming off the ropes for a close near fall. He heads to the top-rope after that looking for a Coffin Drop, however Robinson stops him.
Robinson has Allin crotched over the top-rope away from the corner. He heads up to the middle rope and leaps off with a clothesline that knocks Allin down. He goes for the cover but Darby kicks out. Juice follows this up with a jack-hammer into another pin attempt. Somehow Darby again finds a way to kick out.
Juice takes Darby up to the top-rope and heads up after him. Darby counters and hits a crazy super-scorpion death drop off the top-rope. He heads back up to the top-rope and follows that up with a Coffin Drop that connects. He goes for the cover and gets the pin to retain his TNT Championship.
Winner and STILL TNT Champion: Darby Allin
The Latest Chapter In The ‘Book Of Hobbs’
Once the match wraps up, we see “The Icon” Sting make his way out to celebrate Darby Allin’s second defense of his current TNT Championship reign.
From there, we head to the latest chapter in the Book of Hobbs. He talks about spreading ashes all over those he hurts in AEW and then we head to another commercial break.
The Acclaimed Make Asses Out Of The Ass Boys
As we return from the break, we hear the familiar sounds of The Acclaimed’s theme song and out comes Max Caster with Anthony Bowens and “Daddy Ass” Billy Gunn. He does a freestyle with rhymes about hiding documents like Joe Biden, etc.
Anthony Bowens finishes up with the “scissor me, daddy!” catchphrase and then begins their “Hollywood Walk of Fame” acceptance speech, only for The Gunn Club to interrupt them.
As Austin and Colten Gunn come out, they insult the tag champs and then claim they deserve the star more. Billy Gunn takes the mic and says sometime a father has to do what he’s got to do.
On that note, they tell The Gunn Club to put their hand prints in the mix. They go to do so, but from behind, Caster and Bowens run up and “pants” them, yanking their pants down and exposing their tighty-whitey’s. From there, Gunn pushes them and their ass prints, not their hand prints, are indented in the mix.
Kings of the Black Throne vs. Eddie Kingston & Ortiz
We head back inside the Kia Forum where The Kings of the Black Throne theme hits and out comes the duo of Malakai Black and Brody King ready for their advertised tag-team match.
As they settle into the ring, the theme for Eddie Kingston hits and out comes “The Mad King” along with Ortiz. The two settle inside the squared circle as well and their entrance tunes die down.
Now the bell sounds and we’re off-and-running with this one. We see Ortiz duking it out with Brody King in the early goings. He fares well and then leans back to tag in Kingston. Kingston is hesitant to accept the tag but eventually does.
When “The Mad King” hits the ring, he picks up where Ortiz left off, taking it to King before challenging him to head back and tag in Malakai. He eventually does and the Kings of the Black Throne leader heads inside the ring.
Kingston and Black lock-up and start going after it. After whipping him into the ropes, Kingston whacks the p*ss out of Malakai with a vicious chop. Kingston goes for a spinning back-fist but Malakai avoids it.
“The Mad King” sits down cross-legged to taunt Malakai. Malakai squats down right in front of him and also sits in his trademark cross-legged fashion. The two stare each other down from there as we head to a mid-match commercial break with the match still in progress.
As we return from the break, we see Kingston laid out in the ring. Brody King is the legal man for The Kings of the Black Throne. He hits a big lariat on Kingston but Kingston hangs in there. He hits an enzugiri and a half-and-half suplex that buys him some time.
Ortiz slaps the top turnbuckle and leads the fans in rallying behind his tag-team partner. Kingston finally sits up and with some blood on his face we see him finally get to his feet. He sees Ortiz pleading for the tag but instead turns his back to him and attempts to continue by himself.
Kingston does well and Ortiz hits the ring regardless to provide an assist in the form of a DDT. Kingston goes for his spinning back fist again after again ignoring Ortiz’s pleads for a tag. Malakai blasts Kingston with a big knee and then catches Ortiz with a big knee coming off the ropes.
Kingston ends up turning Malakai inside-out with a lariat. King grabs him from behind but Kingston knocks him out to the floor. We see Buddy Murphy and Julia Hart run down to the ring. As they slide into the ring with a chair, Kingston steps on it and gets it from him.
We see Julia behind him and Kingston nearly takes her out without realizing it was a woman. Ortiz gets offended and yells at him asking if he’s trying to hit a girl. In the confusion, we see The Kings of the Black Throne capitalize on this and get the win.
After the match, we see The Kings of the Black Throne tell Ortiz he did great, as the commentators speculate that the group did all of this on purpose.
Winners: The Kings Of The Black Throne
Jade Cargill Confirms Red Velvet Is Out Of The Baddies
We shoot backstage where TBS Women’s Champion Jade Cargill is shown in the interview zone. She has her solo member of The Baddies with her and they talk about how Red Velvet is out of the group. The segment ends after this.
Renee Paquette With Paul Walter Hauser
Now we head back inside the Kia Forum where Renee Paquette is standing inside the ring. She introduces her guest at this time, Paul Walter Hauser. The Golden Globes winner makes his way out to the ring and he stands in front of the mystery box he had with him on Dynamite earlier this week.
From there, he talks about being a big fan of AEW because anything can happen in AEW. With that said, Danhausen’s theme hits. Danhausen makes his way out and talks about being the top merchandise seller in AEW. He says he didn’t get an award for one so Hauser should give him his Golden Globe.
Before anything else can happen, the theme for Jeff Jarrett hits and out he comes accompanied by Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt and Satnam Singh as Hauser questions how many people are gonna come out.
Hauser tells Jarrett he may be a legend but he’s in his town tonight and before he says “slap ass this and I invented the figure-four that,” he needs to tell him some things. He says he never sees him play that guitar he brings everywhere with him.
He continues to mock him until Lethal decks him with a big right hand. Jarrett gets his guitar and as Lethal and Dutt hold him, Jarrett blasts it over his dome and turns it into a million toothpicks. Lethal picks up Hauser’s Golden Globe trophy and holds it up high.
Now the theme for Orange Cassidy and The Best Friends hits and they run down to the ring to restore order inside the squared circle. The heels flee and we see the babyface trio standing tall as they make the save for Paul Walter Hauser.
We see that Lethal still has the Golden Globe award. He and Dutt pose with it and smile before heading backstage as this segment thankfully finally comes to an end. On that note, we head to another commercial break.
Women’s Tag-Team Street Fight
Tay Melo & Anna Jay A.S. vs. Ruby Soho & Willow Nightingale
As we return from the commercial break, we see a video package with words from the two teams involved in our street fight main event of the evening here on AEW Rampage on TNT.
Speaking in the video are the teams of Ruby Soho and Willow Nightingale and the duo from the J.A.S. of Tay Melo and Anna Jay A.S. After it wraps up, Mark Henry appears apparently strictly to do his “Well it’s been enough talk” catchphrase.
From there, we head back inside the Kia Forum where the J.A.S. theme hits and out comes Melo and Jay only to be attacked from behind by Soho and Nightingale, who are dressed in tie-dye. They beat down the J.A.S. duo and then Soho shoves Willow and yells, “Get the tables!”
The brawl continues down at the ringside area as Anna bashes Soho face-first into the ring bell, while Nightingale and Melo duke it out inside the ring. They head to the top-rope and we see a face-buster into the turnbuckle lead to Willow crashing and burning on the floor at ringside.
Ruby is put inside a trash can and then the J.A.S. duo hit a big stomp on the can. After Soho gets out of the can, we see her face is badly busted open. Her face is quickly turning into a bright red crimson mask as we head to a mid-match commercial break as our main event of the evening continues.
We return from the break to see the J.A.S. duo still very much in the offensive lead. Barbed wire makes an appearance as Anna Jay A.S. wraps it around her arm and then slaps on the Queenslayer submission / choke on Willow.
Ruby, with a chain wrapped around her fist, grabs Anna from behind and starts drilling her repeatedly until Melo smashes a trash can lid over her dome. A loud “E-C-Dub!” chant breaks out. Things build to a big spot in the corner where Willow Nightingale power bombs everyone else in the match off the top-rope.
Soho’s face, for the record, is absolutely drenched in blood. Anna Jay A.S. is busted open now as well. Willow rag-dolls her into the corner and grabs a bent to hell trash can that she sets on her face. Before she can do anything else, Melo attacks her from behind with a chair.
Willow spinebusters her down to shuck her off and then runs over and hits a cannonball senton onto the can in front of Anna’s face in the corner. She goes for the cover, but Anna kicks out before the count of three. Fans break out into a loud “This is Awesome!” chant, which Chris Jericho says is deserved on commentary.
Nightingale goes for a powerbomb on Anna off the stage, but she ends up sitting on the table to break it herself with her ass, and power-bombs Anna on the hard floor in front of it. Ouch. At ringside a table is set up by Soho but Melo takes over and ends up putting her through it instead. She goes for the cover but Soho kicks out.
Melo pulls out a black sack of thumbtacks, which she dumps all over the ring. She looks for a piledriver on Soho into the tacks, but Soho fights her way out. Melo goes to shove Soho’s face into the tacks, but Soho pushes her own hand into them to reverse the momentum.
She throws some tacks into Melo’s face and then hits her Destination Unknown finisher on Melo onto the tacks. She follows up with the cover and gets the pin. Ruby Soho is so badly bleeding its’ insane, by the way. But she got the win, along with Willow Nightingale. After this violently bloody showdown, we head off the air. Thanks for joining us!
