The fallout from AEW Dynamite and go-home show for AEW Dynamite Grand Slam is tonight, featuring a world tag team title match, and more!

AEW Rampage, as always, wasted no time in getting to the action, as The Butcher & Blade and Lucha Bros made their way to the ring.

AEW World Tag Team Championship: The Lucha Brothers  (c) (Rey Fenix & Penta El Zero M) w/ Alex Abrahantes vs. The Butcher & The Blade w/ The Bunny, Matt Hardy, & Jack Evans

The first few minutes of this match was basic tag team wrestling until Penta hit two sling blades on both Butcher and Blade. Fenix and Penta hit stereo dives onto both men, and it looked awesome. Fenix and Penta couldn’t maintain control for long though, as Butcher and Blade used their size to eventually start getting the heat on Pentagon.

Fenix tagged in and ran wild, hitting several suplexes and a moonsault into a German suplex on Blade. They hit the assisted Fear Factor on Blade, but Butcher dodged a dive from Fenix and broke up the pinfall before going right back to beating on Penta. Blade hit a power slam on Penta.

Butcher & Blade tied Penta to the middle rope with his mask and went to double team Fenix, but Pentagon took his mask off, covered his face, and superkicked Blade before Fenix hit a hurricanrana on Butcher for the pinfall. That was an awesome finish.

Result: The Lucha Brothers via pinfall

Rating: ***1/2

That was a fantastic finish to that match. I really liked how Pentagon made sure to cover his face, but did what he needed to do to save the titles. Private Party ran down and started attacking both Lucha Brothers, and Butcher & Blade recovered to help.

They were about to rip the mask of Rey Fenix when Santana & Ortiz ran down to make the save, to the delight of the crowd, and we saw the Death Triangle and Inner Circle united, at least for now.

Anna Jay (The Dark Order) w/ Tay Conti vs. The Bunny w/ Penelope Ford & Matt Hardy

Anna Jay wasted no time in taking it to The Bunny in this match, given that their feud is a bit personal. It didn’t take long, however for The Bunny to capitalize on a distraction and attack Anna Jay’s arm and shoulder on the floor.

When they came back from break, Anna Jay was still struggling with the shoulder, as Bunny continued to work it over. Penelope Ford got on the apron, but Tay Conti pulled her off, and Anna Jay rolled up The Bunny for the pinfall.

Result: Anna Jay via pinfall

Rating: *

This was not good, but they kept it short, thankfully. Ford and Bunny attacked Anna Jay and Tay Conti after the match, with Ford hitting both Jay and Conti with brass knuckles.

Matt Hardy was in the ring with Tony Schiavone and Hardy talked about how Anny Jay, Conti, Santana, Ortiz, Fenix, and Penta were all going to pay next week in tag matches. He then said that an Orange Cassidy fan in the crowd was making him angry, so he pulled him over the guardrail and started cutting his hair. Orange Cassidy came down to make the save, but the damage was already done.

Britt Baker came down to the ring for her faceoff with Ruby Soho, with Tony Schiavone between both of them. Baker noted that Soho was not there for the title, the fans, or anything else, but she was here because she was trying to fit in somewhere. Baker said everyone knew who she was, but Soho still had no idea who she was.

Soho said that Baker shoved it down the fans’ throat who she was so, of course, they would know. Soho said she finally had the freedom to show who she was. Soho said Baker was just selfish and entitled. Baker said Soho liked to call herself “The Runaway”, but she didn’t run away, she got fired.

Soho said it was the best thing to ever happen to her because it brought her to AEW, and that next week she was going to take the title from Baker. Baker tried to attack Soho, but she ducked and took down Baker, and Baker rolled out of the ring. This was an AWESOME segment. I had to put that in all caps. It was that good.

Mark Henry did his split-screen promo with Fuego del Sol and Miro, with Fuego saying he was happy to put the car on the line if it meant winning the TNT Championship. Miro said he only took the match because he likes celebrating his win with God, and his wife.

TNT Championship/Fuego’s Moderately Priced Used Car Match: Miro (c) vs. Fuego del Sol

Fuego started this match with a go behind and also attacked Miro on the floor, driving him into the ring post, and hitting a hurricanrana off the apron onto the floor. Miro recovered and threw Fuego into the crowd, but a fan caught him and helped him balance on the guardrail, and Fuego went for a crossbody, but Miro caught him and hit a fallaway slam on the floor.

Miro took Fuego into the ring and threw him across the squared circle. Fuego did manage to get on the back of Miro and put on a sleeper hold, but Miro drove him back to the corner. Fuego hit a moonsault off the top rope and went for another crossbody, but Miro caught him again. Fuego rolled Miro up and then jumped up into an enziguri, which stunned Miro.

Fuego went for a springboard crossbody, but Miro swatted him out of the air with an axe handle, and it was awesome. Miro went for a DDT, but Fuego slipped out and nailed Miro with a double stomp, and then another double stomp to the neck before hitting a kick and a short DDT. Miro stopped a Sliced Bread and kicked Fuego and started beating him down in the corner. Miro kicked his head off, then did one to the back of the head before pinning him.

Result: Miro

Rating: ***

This was a really solid match that gave Fuego del Sol just enough to make you think he had a chance and make you want to see him hit the Tornado DDT on Miro, but Miro still stood above, dominating the young babyface. Miro grabbed the car keys that he just won, but shoved them into Fuego del Sol’s mouth and locked on the Game Over.

Sammy Guevara ran down to make the save and sent Miro to the floor. Guevara got into a shouting match with Miro before grabbing the TNT Championship, eyeing it as though he wanted it, before posing with it, and then throwing it back to Miro. It looks like we’re going to have Sammy Guevara & Miro at some point in the near future.

Show Rating: ***
