Jon Moxley vs. “All Ego” Ethan Page (with Scorpio Sky)!

Ethan Page hit an avalanche powerslam off the middle rope but Mox rolled him up with a crucifix. Mox then hammered Page with elbows and knees to the top of Page’s head! Mox applied the bulldog choke and ref Aubrey Edwards stopped the match.
“Moxley victorious in his return to action in All Elite Wrestling,” said Excalibur.
“That was a hell of a match. Ethan Page has nothing to be embarrassed about,” replied Taz.
Mox turned around, kicked Page and spiked Page with the Paradigm Shift for good measure!
Moxley walked back to the locker room but “American Dragon” Bryan Danielson stood in his way and stood a hole right through him, smirking as Moxley walked by.
Trent Beretta (with “Freshly Squeezed” Orange Cassidy, Chuck Taylor, Kris Statlander, and Wheeler Yuta) vs. The Young Bucks’ Nick Jackson (with Matt Jackson & associate stooge Brandon Cutler)!
This match was originally scheduled to be Roppongi Vice versus The Young Bucks, but due to medical protocols, Rocky Romero was out of action tonight.
“I can’t think of a singles match that Nick Jackson has had that wasn’t spectacular,” said Chris Jericho.
“This is the first ever singles meeting between the two of them,” added Excalibur.
Trent shut Nick’s early offense down with a running chop and then an overhead throw. Nick followed up by targeting the neck with a guillotine over the top rope. Trent hit Nick Jackson with a back body drop. Trent charged at Nick but Nick ducked, and Trent went flying wildly into the ropes!
Nick Jackson kicked the back of Trent’s head, clearly targeting Trent’s surgically repaired neck! Nick tried to land a senton on Trent but Trent avoided it. Trent fired back with a clothesline and then a deadlift German Suplex! Trent charged in with a running knee strike for a near fall on Nick!
Trent battered Nick Jackson with stiff forearms. Trent speared Nick on the arena floor! Trent launched off the ropes with a swinging DDT on Nick for a (very) near fall!
Nick Jackson pulled ref Rick Knox in the way and then blasted Trent with a kick to the side of the head!
“Such an intense battle, this rivalry between these two men,” said Excalibur.
Nick escaped out to the apron and came into the ring with a Canadian Destroyer on Trent for a two-count!
“Nick Jackson doesn’t know what he has to do to put Trent away,” said Chris Jericho.
“Nick is finding out the hard way about Trent,” replied Starks.
Nick connected with a kick and then a running bulldog on Trent. Nick tried for a superkick but Trent blocked it and countered with a half and half suplex! Trent used a piledriver on Nick for a near fall.
“Nick barely, just barely got that shoulder up,” said Excalibur.
Nick back body dropped Trent onto the ramp! Nick followed up with a senton atomico on Trent on the ramp! Nick hit the 450 splash on Trent but Trent kicked out! Nick superkicked Trent! Trent avoided another superkick and then pinned Nick Jackson after a crunchie!
“What a victory for Trent here on RAMPAGE tonight,” said Jericho.
Hook vs. Serpentico!
Hook steamrolled Serpentico at the start of the match! Hook decimated Serpentico with an STO! Hook hurled Serpentico with a massive overhead throw! Hook locked on the RedRum and Serpentico had no choice but to tap out!
QT Marshall came out with a mic and called Hook a delinquent. Hook suplexed QT on the ramp and then stepped right over him to walk to the back!
Main Event Time!
TBS Championship Match!
TBS Champ Jade Cargill (with “Smart” Mark Sterling) vs. Dark Order’s Anna Jay (with John Silver)!
“24-0 is no joke. Jade Cargill comes in with that winning streak and she lives in her opponent’s head rent free,” said Taz.
Jade rammed into Anna Jay with a shoulder tackle. She followed up with a fall away slam! Anna rolled up Jade Cargill from behind as Jade was posturing. Jade kicked out of the pin attempt!
Outside the ring, Jade and John Silver had a pose off! John Silver ducked and it allowed Anna Jay to catch Jade off guard with a running clothesline!
Back in the ring, Jade planted Anna Jay with a spinebuster! Jade showed off by doing push-ups in the ring. Anna charged at Jade but Jade flipped her with a belly-to-belly suplex. Anna Jay hit a heel kick and then had a reverse choke on Jade. Jade countered by dropping to the mat.
Anna kicked Jade’s midsection and then hit a thrust kick to the jaw. Anna Jay planted Jade with a flatliner. “Smart” Mark jumped on the apron to try to distract Anna but Silver dispatched of him.
Jade Cargill pump kicked Anna, but Anna kicked out the back of Jade’s leg. Anna climbed to the top turnbuckle and applied the choke again. Jade broke the grip and then smashed Anna Jay with a one-armed powerbomb! Cargill planted Anna with the Jaded and then pinned Anna Jay!
And still TBS Champion…Jade Cargill!
“Jade Cargill gets better with every match,” said Chris Jericho.
“Every time Jade Cargill has hit that move she has scored the win. And now her record improves to a perfect 25-0! What a victory for Jade Cargill,” said Excalibur.
