Results by: Alex Kahrs of

Just a friendly 4/20 PSA that pro wrestling is best when consumed in moderation…and with that, Saturday night’s alright for Collidin’ (and this week, Rampagin’)!

“You think you know him…”

We open up with the arrival of the TNT Champion as Adam Copeland makes his way to the ring for the first match of the night! The call to “reach for the sky, boy” signals the arrival of the new ROH World Champion as Mark Briscoe heads down the ramp next, bumping fists with Copeland once he’s in the ring. Eddie Kingston’s theme reminds us “the world is cold, better buckle up” as the NJPW Strong Openweight Champion heads down the ring (and I promise right now, I won’t do that for every entrance haha).

Briscoe and Kingston showing no animosity after their battle at Supercard of Honor for the ROH title, as Top Flight and Action Andretti make their way to the ring before this match gets underway!

Trios Match: Adam Copeland, Eddie Kingston and Mark Briscoe vs. Top Flight and Action Andretti

Andrett and Briscoe start things off, with Action taunting the Redneck Kung Fu of the ROH champion…who responds with a takedown and an arm wringer! Andretti fights out, catching Briscoe in a side headlock before taking to the ropes…but Mark takes him right back down with a takeover! Exchange of holds follows suit, with Andretti taking Briscoe down with a headscissors and a spinning torneo for a nearfall!

Andretti sends Briscoe to the corner, but the champ responds with a springboard elbow to the face of Action…before sending him to the corner for some forearm strikes and a tag to Copeland! The two take Andretti down as Briscoe leaves the ring, but Andretti fights out of a Copeland suplex to lay in some kicks to the leg of the TNT Champion! Back elbow off the ropes takes Copeland down, but Action is struggling before getting a tag to Darius! Darius with a nearfall before tagging Dante in for a double-team, taking the champ to the canvas.

Dante mocks Briscoe and Kingston, and this gives Copeland an opening as he catches Dante with a big power slam! Tag made to Kingston, who lands a series of headbutts to take Dante to the corner before following with a big chop. Dante sent back to the corner, but he fights back before nailing a senton to take Kingston down! The champ fights right back, taking control as we go to picture-in-picture!

Picture-in-Picture: Kingston wears Dante down some more before tagging in Copeland, who continues the beatdown before Eddie tags right back in. Nearfall for the champ, who gets to his feet as Dante starts fighting back with some strikes of his own…only to be sent back to the corner by Kingston, who lays in some punches as we come back from break!

Dante catches the champ by surprise, keeping Kingston down long enough to tag Darius in while Briscoe makes a tag of his own! Exchange of strikes ends with Briscoe getting taken down, and Darius fends him and Copeland off before getting a nearfall. Dante gets involved after a tag as they double-team Briscoe, but the ROH champ fights back before tagging in Kingston! Quick tag by Andretti, who takes advantage of the ensuing chaos for a nearfall before Copeland breaks it up…and all six men charge for a clothesline!

And all six men drop to the canvas as a result! Eventually, it’s Andretti and Kingston back to their feet for an exchange of strikes before Action goes to the ropes…getting stopped by Kingston, who himself gets caught with a kick from Darius! Copeland catches him with an Impaler and Briscoe with a Jay Driller to send him out!

Andretti gets caught with a combo that ends in the Froggy Bow by Briscoe, and the team get the pin and the win!

Winners via pinfall: Adam Copeland, Eddie Kingston and Mark Briscoe

All six men show a sign of respect, but the moment is cut short by a video from the House of Black, who warn their Dynasty opponents that their hopes will be destroyed tomorrow night. Malakai Black reaches out to Adam Copeland, talking about making him wonder if he’ll be close to hell…because for men like them, hell is where the heart is. We cut to a confused and slightly concerned Copeland as we cut away from ringside.

Video Package: Swerve Strickland is ready for the challenge ahead of him at AEW Dynasty when he faces Samoa Joe for the AEW World Championship!

Back at ringside, Powerhouse Hobbs makes his way to the ring alongside Don Callis for our next match, with CJ Esparza already in the ring as this match gets underway!

Powerhouse Hobbs vs. CJ Esparza

Hobbs absolutely demolishes CJ in the early going, and uh…doesn’t let up from there. Big focus here is on Don telling the Powerhouse to “rack him” and Hobbs obliging, before setting him up for a Torture Rack for a quick win!

Winner via submission: Powerhouse Hobbs

Don Callis cuts a promo after the match, trying not to get drowned out by the boos as he talks about the Bunkhouse Brawl later tonight and hyping up Powerhouse Hobbs ahead of his match against Jon Moxley next week on Dynamite. He talks about the impact he’s had on careers in New Japan and how he considers himself responsible for the rise in popularity for that company…and repaying a favor they owe him, announcing that the match between Hobbs and Mox on Dynamite will be for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship!

The man claims that the title will once again come home to the Don Callis Family as Hobbs’s music hits, with the Powerhouse talking down a fan in the crowd before heading to the ramp with Callis.

Video Package: Will Ospreay talks about being on another level, ahead of his bout against Bryan Danielson this Sunday at AEW Dynasty!

We get a rundown of what’s to come later tonight, with tag action between The Acclaimed and The Gunns up next!

Recap: Things break down between HOOK and Chris Jericho, with Jericho crossing a line by shoving HOOK’s father Taz down during the meeting on Dynamite

Backstage, Jericho apologizes for his behavior on Wednesday before addressing the FTW Championship match he got the okay on from Tony Khan for Dynasty. He says the Learning Tree is going to teach him some hard lessons this Sunday, as well as some life lessons…and it’s gonna hurt Jericho a lot more than it’s gonna hurt HOOK.

We cut backstage as The Gunns make their way to the ring for our next match. Out next are The Acclaimed with a rap before this match gets underway…but before we do, Tony Schiavone makes an announcement: per Tony Khan, if The Gunns walk out on this match there will be no match tomorrow night. Austin tries to fight this off but The Acclaimed jump them, sending them into the ring as the match finally gets underway!

The Acclaimed vs. Austin and Colten Gunn

It’s absolute chaos to start things off until Caster and Colten are left in the ring, with Colten getting the upper hand as we go to picture-in-picture!

Picture-in-Picture: Colten maintains control before tagging in Austin, who wears Caster down some more…and they quickly tag back, allowing Colten to keep on the attack–until the TNT feed cuts to a full commercial. Thanks, TNT!

-Commercial Break-

Back int he ring, Colten tags in Austin for a double-team before leaving the ring as Austin keeps a single leg crab locked in! Tag to Colten for another double team, keeping Caster from making the tag…but Caster finally escapes, and Bowens gets the tag! Famouser from Bowens gets a nearfall, but Colten kicks out!

Bowens gets him up on his shoulders but Austin intervenes, allowing Colten to catch Bowens in a standing switch…but Bowens fights out, reversing and rolling Colten up! But to no avail, and Bowens gets shoved into caster who falls out of the ring before catching a nearfall with is feet on the ropes!

But the ref catches him! Jay tries to get involved but to no avail as Bowens drops Colten for the nearfall. The interference continues and in the midst of it all, Colten gets a Famouser of his own for a nearfall on Bowens!

Tag to Austin and a double team ends with a neckbreaker by Colten for a nearfall by Austin. Tag made as they set up for 3:10 to Yuma…but Bowens fights it off as Caster makes the tag! Colten’s left alone in the ring as Caster goes after him, but he’s taken down with an elbow to the back of the head! Caster fights back, hitting a fireman carry slam on Colten before going up top…only for Austin to intercept him!

Bowens gets into it now, but gets hit with a 3:10 to Yuma by the Gunns…only for Caster to hit a Mic Drop on Austin! Colten sneaks up for a nearfall, and follows up with a sneaky pin combination (and some help from the Switchblade) for the win!

Winners: The Gunns

Bullet Club quickly retreat up the ramp, promising to be the unified champs after tomorrow night as they celebrate on the stage.

Backstage, Lexy Nair talks to Bryan Danielson about the Bunkhouse Brawl tonight ahead of his match against Will Ospreay at Dynasty. He runs down the Family ahead of that tag match, until Ospreay barges in to try and clear the air over his involvement with Don Callis. He tells Bryan he’s got nothing to do with all of what’s gone down, but Danielson has his doubts before walking off.

Last week: Things have continued to heat up between Toni Storm and Thunder Rosa ahead of their match for the AEW Women’s World Championship at AEW Dynasty!

We cut to footage from Wednesday after Dynamite, with the champ Storm running down Thunder Rosa after what she did.

Back at ringside, Claudio and Bryan make their way out for our next match…but Takeshita and Fletcher get the jump on them as this match gets underway!

Bunkhouse Brawl: Bryan Danielson and Claudio Castagnoli vs. Konosuke Takeshita and Kyle Fletcher

Takeshita gets the upper hand on Claudio as Danielson starts turning things around on Fletcher, and the match goes throughout the crowd as things get all the more chaotic. Fletcher makes fun of a child before slamming Bryan’s head into a guardrail as Claudio sends a trashcan into Takeshita with a big kick!

the fight finally gets back to ringside as Danielson catches Fletcher, sending him into the announce table as Takeshita nails Castagnoli with the timekeeper’s hammer! Bryan starts choking out Fletcher with a cable as Claudio sends Takeshita into the ring, but Konosuke fights back with a set of strikes…and then takes a bite out of Claudio!

Castagnoli responds by dropping him, before taking Takeshita for a giant swing…that ends with a dropkick to the head by Danielson! Claudio locks in the Sharpshooter as Danielson goes for a dive on Fletcher…who intercepts with a chair to the face of the American Dragon! Fletcher slides into the ring with a handful of powder that he sends into Claudio’s face, followed by a big powerbomb…but Claudio kicks out! Danielson is busted open on the outside as we go to picture-in-picture!

Picture-in-Picture: The Family have taken control of the match now, with Fletcher going to work on Claudio on the outside now as Takeshita’s brought Danielson into the ring to continue the beatdown…but Bryan is starting to fight back withs ome strikes as Claudio gets sent over the barricade on the outside.

Claudio helps Danielson out now, sending Takeshita bakc into the ring for a leg drop dropping him from the second rope…and Claudio goes back after Fletcher as Bryan lays Takeshita out with a series of kicks! Danielson in the corner, looking for the Busaiku…but Fletcher catches him by the foot, allowing Takeshita to hit a big kick in the corner!

Takeshita catches an approaching Claudio with a German suplex, and we get a pair of suplexes as the Family pin in stereo…but both of BCC kick out!

Fletcher retrieves a couple chains but this gets turned around before BCC lock in LeBelle Locks on both men…only for Hobbs to run in, beating them both down to break the hold! There are no DQs here as Hobbs smirks…only for Mox’s music to hit as the IWGP World Champion runs through the crowd for the save! “Wild Thing” continues to play as Mox and Hobbs go at it, giving your humble recapper Anarchy in the Arena flashbacks as back in the ring Fletcher beats Danielson down with a microphone.

The music finally cuts off as both Hobbs and Mox have disappeared through the crowd, and a chair is set up as Fletcher and Takeshita set Danielson up for a powerbomb…only for Bryan to reverse a hurricanrana to drive Takeshita onto the chair! Claudio in the ring with an arm wrapped in a chain for a very metal, very European uppercut on Fletcher and Takeshita! This gets followed up with an attack on Takeshita using a new action figure as back in the ring, Danielson uses a chain for extra damage on a LeBelle Lock as Kyle Fletcher taps out!

Winners via pinfall: Bryan Danielson and Claudio Castagnoli

Bryan Danielson gets a microphone after the match, addressing why he took on this match before Dynasty by saying that when he dies, his heaven will be standing in this ring and shedding blood for what he loves. He then promises Will Ospreay he’s going to beat him tomorrow night at Dynasty!

They drop the coin and the Rainmaker arrives, as Kazuchika Okada makes his way down the ramp to join his Elite teammates at ringside. Their opponents are out next, as PAC steps onto the stage first and are joined by FTR, heading to the ring before this main event gets underway!

Trios Match: Kazuchika Okada and The Young Bucks vs. PAC and FTR

We start off with PAC and Okada in the ring…or maybe not brother, as the Bucks try to blindside PAC to no avail! PAC takes Okada to the corner for some strikes before tagging in Cash, who lays in some hard strikes of his own before tagging PAC back in…but the Bucks save their friend from a double team, only for a triple baseball slide to get the drop on the Elite!

“High Flying” Four-Way Elimination Match: Rob Van Dam vs. Komander vs. Isiah Kassidy vs. Lee Johnson

Crowd chanting for RVD, because…you know…nobody flies higher than Rob Van Dam. RVD responds with the thumbs taunt as we get things going. The other three men go after RVD, who escapes and sits up on the turnbuckle as Zay mocks Komander…which only ends with a double dropkick from the luchador and Johnson! The action breaks down until we’re left with RVD and Komander, only for Zay to get involved and mock RVD’s taunt…but this really costs him as RVD hits a monkey flip and a Rolling Thunder!

Komander goes up top, walking the ropes until Zay drops him on his little luchas!

Emi sends Yuka into the announce table before taunting her with a Kenny Omega figure…and threatens to beat her down with cans of Woo Energy before the ref intervenes! Yuka gives Emi the slip as she runs around the ring, only for Emi to turn it around on her and goes after the eyes before the ref tells her to get back in the ring.

Emi hops on the apron just enough to break the count, but as she goes back after Yuka she gets caught with a kick sending her to the floor as we go to picture-in-picture!

Picture-in-Picture: Emi quickly turns it back around, wearing Sakazaki down in each corner with a series of strikes followed by a big corner cross body, getting a nearfall in the process.

We cut to a Rampage exclusive, with Cool Hand Angelo Parker addressing what’s been happening the past couple months. He talks about last week’s Rampage being a must-win match, but he lost to Zak Knight…and has had to really look back and reflect. Ang is just about to announce his retirement when Ruby Soho comes out to the ring.

Ruby says she can’t have Ang retire, because she’s out here to tell him he has something very important to fight for…because she’s pregnant. She knows it’s so soon and she didn’t know how to tell Ang…who interrupts with a kiss, asking if he’s indeed about to become a dad. She nods in response, and the two embrace to an ovation from the crowd.

We get a reminder that our Rampage main event is up next for some blazing hot trios action!

This is obliged, but Strong quickly tags Mike back in…only for O’Reilly to start wearing him down before tagging in Daddy Magic. Menard takes Bennett down before the latter gets a tag to Taven, only for Menard to stay on the attack. Tag made to Romero who sends Bennett off the apron, only for Taven to catch him by surprise.
