Below are matches taped for this Friday night’s AEW Rampage. The matches were taped Wednesday night at the Chaifetz Arena in St. Louis, MO after Dynamite went off the air.
Excalibur, Taz and Chris Jericho were the commentary team. Jericho knocked the crowd on the mic for singing his song after booing him earlier in the night. This was likely before the actual show began taping.
Jon Moxley submitted Dante Martin with a rear naked choke. It was said that this was a really good back and forth match with Martin getting several near falls. William Regal was on commentary for the match.
Max Caster and The Gunn Club defeated Leon Ruff and Bear Country. Caster’s rap to the ring mentioned “having to sign an NDA.”
TBS Champion Jade Cargill defeated Willow Nightingale with the Implant Buster. Stokely Hathaway was on commentary. After the match Kiera Hogan worked over Willow. Athena then got involved. Hathaway tried to interfere but was taken out by Kris Statlander.
Darby Allin defeated Bobby Fish. Sting made a surprise return to prevent Kyle O’Reilly from interfering in the match.
After the taping ended, Tony Schiavone put over Sting on the house mic. Tony Khan introduced Hook and Danhausen. Khan and the others praised Sting to close the night. Sting took the mic and asked St. Louis how they were doing. He introduced himself as Stinghausen. He said it’s an honor to be here with with Darby Allin. He said that he’s still jumping off balconies, swinging his bat and he still loves the roar of the crowd. Sting did, “It’s Schiavone” as a parody of the way Schiavone introduces him. He said that he knows his days are numbered but he’s glad he had the opportunity to say hello, because the fans mean the world to him. The crowd chanted “Thank you Sting” to close the night. Khan then thanked St. Louis for coming.
