AEW RAMPAGE RESULTS (11/3/2023)
The usual “This is Rampage, baby!” theme hits and then we shoot inside the KFC Yum! Center for the second time this week, as AEW Rampage is now officially off-and-running on TNT with their usual taped show.
Lucha Del Dia De Los Muertos
El Hijo del Vikingo vs. Penta El Zero Miedo vs. Komander
Excalibur, who is joined by Paul Wight and Tony Schiavone on commentary this week, welcome us to this week’s show. We head straight to the ring for the Mexican holiday-themed match, as the Lucha Del Dia De Los Muertos showdown pitting El Hijo del Vikingo vs. Penta El Zero Miedo vs. Komander kicks things off.
All three are already in the ring and the bell sounds to get this one officially off-and-running. Immediately we see bodies flying all over the place, as we see back-to-back suicide dives to the floor, followed by back-to-back sling blade high spots on the floor.
Penta fires up and takes over on offense, knocking both guys out to the floor before hitting the ropes to build up a full head of steam, where he leaps and flips over the top-rope to splash onto both guys at ringside. The fans chant Penta’s name after that.
He continues to dominate the offense in the ring landing sickening chops as the QTV crew are shown watching on a monitor backstage, including AAA Latin American Champion QT Marshall. Penta quiets the audience down before slipping off his glove and throwing it to Alex Abrahantes.
The Lucha Bros tag-team member quiets the crowd down again and hits a fast-ball chop to the chest of El Hijo del Vikingo. On that note, we shift gears and head into a mid-match commercial break as the action continues. When we return from the break, Penta is still very much in the offensive driver’s seat taking it to Vikingo.
Komander is still down and out on the floor. Vikingo takes over and starts walking from the ring post over the top-rope and then leaps into a big high spot attempted on Komander, who catches him coming down and counters. Vikingo recovers and hits a crucifix bomb on Penta, but is then hit himself with a crazy move.
Alex Abrahantes, with his face painted red and black like Puddy at a New Jersey Devils hockey game, is shown at ringside cheering on Penta. Komander is sent flying out to the floor as Penta and Vikingo duke it out on the ring apron. Vikingo hits a poisonrana on Penta on the hard part of the apron for a loud “This is Awesome!” chant.
We see Penta hit a pile driver and a simultaneous spot on Vikingo and Komander at the same time on the ring apron. Both guys crash and burn down on the floor below as fans break out into a loud “Fight Forever!” chant. Penta looks for a Canadian Destroyer off the top but Vikingo counters. He deadlifts Penta after that into a Rock Bottom with authority.
Vikingo hits a 630 splash off the top-rope on Penta and goes for the cover, but Komander breaks it up in time to keep this match alive. Komander hits an implosion Phoenix splash off the top-rope and goes for the cover on Vikingo, but Penta breaks it up. Penta hits a Fear Factor on him moments later for the win. An amazing match to kick things off tonight.
Winner: Penta El Zero Miedo
Alex Marvez Interviews Jay Lethal & Co.
We shoot backstage to Alex Marvez, who is standing by with Jeff Jarrett, Karen Jarrett, Jay Lethal, Satnam Singh and Sonjay Dutt. They talk about Dutt’s recent comments and then focus on how Lethal is going to become the new ROH World Champion when he beats Eddie Kingston for the title.
The Gunns vs. Christopher Daniels & Matt Sydal
Now we return inside the KFC Yum! Center where we see the always-cool ring entrance for Bullet Club Gold. Jay White and Juice Robinson accompanies The Gunns — Austin and Colten Gunn — as they head to the ring for our next scheduled match of the evening.
Already in the ring are their opponents, “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels and Matt Sydal. The bell sounds and we’re officially off-and-running with this one. Gunn and Sydal kick things off for their respective teams. The Gunns start off strong, but Sydal fights back and tags in Daniels.
The two hit a double-team spot and then Daniels settles into the offensive lead. Colten Gunn sneaks in a cheap shot from the ring apron and then Austin tags him in. They mock the kangaroo kick by MJF and then continue to beat down “The Fallen Angel.”
Juice Robinson and Jay White are shown watching on at ringside. They pull out the cardboard Jay White cut-out and pose with it and then The Gunns hit their double-team finisher on Sydal for the pin fall victory. After the match, they get on the mic and send a message to MJF ahead of their ROH Tag-Team title showdown at Full Gear.
Winners: The Gunns
Danhausen Returns … To Announce His Return
We shoot backstage to RJ City who mentions how we have seen the “Very nice, very evil” vignettes for weeks now and the time has arrived. He welcomes back Danhausen.
Danhausen walks through the camera shot, stops, and says he messed up. He’s actually returning next week. He keeps walking and off-camera says, “Thank you!” RJ City says Danhausen returns next week and then we head to another commercial break.
Saraya Talks Down To Ruby Soho
When we return from the break, we shoot to Alex Marvez who is standing by with Saraya and Ruby Soho. He talks to Soho first, who talks about how since Toni Storm has left The Outcasts, they have been on a downward spiral.
She says Saraya lost the title and she lost her title opportunity. Saraya condescends to her and says she’s the biggest star and if it weren’t for her she wouldn’t be on TV. She says stick with her and they’ll be fine. She walks off.
Matt Menard Confronts Angelo Parker
After Soho and Saraya are out of the picture, Parker is left by himself with Marvez. Angelo Parker approaches Soho and tries hitting on her again but again she blows him off. Up comes Matt Menard, who asks Parker where his killer instinct is.
As he continues to scold him, Parker says he’s gonna go talk to Daniel Garcia because he’s got a match tonight and he’s gonna go be his friend.
Marina Shafir vs. Skye Blue
Now we return inside the KFC Yum! Center for our next match of the evening, which is in the women’s division. Out comes Marina Shafir accompanied by Nyla Rose. She takes her shoes and socks off and heads into the ring as her music dies down.
Skye Blue’s theme hits next and out she comes as the commentators play up her recent heel actions in recent weeks. Her theme dies down and the bell sounds to get this one officially off-and-running.
Shafir takes the early offensive lead, taking it to Blue, who tries stomping on her bare feet, but Marina no-sells it. Blue takes over after this anyways, and enjoys some time in the offensive lead. On the floor, Shafir hits a huge suplex.
Blue lands a big kick moments later and takes back over as we head into a mid-match commercial break as the match continues. When we return, we see some back-and-forth action. Shafir nearly finishes her off but Skye bites her way free and then finishers her off for the win.
Winner: Skye Blue
Closer Look At Darby Allin vs. “The Murderhawk Monster” Lance Archer
We see a video package hyping tomorrow’s showdown between “The Murderhawk Monster” Lance Archer and Darby Allin on AEW Collision. After it wraps up, we head to another commercial break.
Daniel Garcia vs. Trent Beretta
It’s main event time!
When we return, we shoot directly into the usual pre-Rampage main event video package hosted by “The World’s Strongest Man” Mark Henry, and featuring comments from Daniel Garcia and Trent Beretta of The Best Friends.
Once the package wraps up, we shoot back inside the KFC Yum! Center where “The Dapper Yapper” Justin Roberts begins the formal ring introductions for our final match of the evening. Best Friends’ theme hits and out comes Trent Beretta.
Daniel Garcia’s theme hits next and out he comes with a serious look on his face. He stops and does his little arms-up dance for a big pop from the crowd. The bell sounds and we’re officially off-and-running with our main event of the evening.
Early on, we see Garcia controlling the action. He does his little dance again for a pop from the crowd, as the commentators focus on him finally seeming to break completely apart from his former friends in the J.A.S. Trent hits a big high spot on the floor to take over on offense.
On that note, we shift gears and head into a mid-match commercial break as this one continues. When we return from the break, we see Trent still in control, but not for long as Garcia takes over. He hits a series of back-to-back suplexes but when he goes for a third, Trent starts to fight back.
Trent hits a running knee strike and then a big pile driver for a close near fall. Garcia kicks out. After that, Trent tries to continue his attack, but Garcia no-sells and starts “Hulk’ing up,” but in a way where he’s slowly getting more and more into his little dance.
He finally does the little dance for a big pop and then hits a big pile driver of his own for a close near fall. He blasts Trent with repeated elbows after the kick-out and then he slaps on a submission for the tap out victory. Good win for Garcia, who gets on the mic after the match and says he has been keeping score.
Because he’s so good at that, he tells us it’s been six months since he’s had a singles match in AEW. He says he wants to win a title. He says he has a greed fetish and a fetish for gold. He calls out Maxwell Jacob Friedman. He says he knows MJF has a lot of targets on his back, but he promises no one in the back wants that title as much as he does.
He tells MJF if he wants to step into the ring with one of the best professional wre…he stops and cuts himself off. He then says with one of the best sports entertainers in the world. He does his little dance again and his theme hits to end the show. We head off the air on that note. Thanks for joining us!
Winner: Daniel Garcia
