Rampage wasn't as much entertaining than past showing because of the holiday but they didn't disappoint with the match card. The Trio's Battle Royale was good to watch could have been better if we saw some crazy eliminations or saves. Could have also seen more action from certain wrestlers like Angelico and Chuck Taylor. The TBS eliminator could have been saved for AEW Dark because this type of matches (Squash) shouldn't be on TV because they are short and waste of time. The tag team match to end the show was entertaining to see especially Billy Gunn and Jeff Jarret.
Tonight, we will see a championship eliminator match as Jade Cargill takes on Vertvixen and we will hear from Wardlow. Plus, we will see Anthony Bowens and Daddy Ass take on Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett. We will see a three-man battle royale where the winner wins the match and 300,000 dollars in cash and we will also hear from Ortiz and Kingston.
