It's Friday night, and you know what that means ...

All Elite Wrestling returns with this week's edition of Rampage on TNT, which emanates from Hertz Arena in Estero, FL.

On tap for the show this evening is another jam-packed lineup, with the fallout from the Revolution pay-per-view continuing.

Featured below are complete AEW Rampage results from Friday, March 11, 2022.

AEW RAMPAGE RESULTS (3/11/2022)

The "This is Rampage, baby!" theme and regular cold open video package airs to get this week's show off-and-running.

Excalibur welcomes us to the show on commentary with his "It's Friday night, and you know what that means" catchphrase.

We then head right down to the squared circle for our first match of the evening here on the post-Revolution 2022 edition of Rampage on TNT.

Darby Allin vs. Marq Quen

The ring announcer handles the pre-match introductions for the opening contest.

Darby Allin and Marq Quen are already in the ring for this, the first bout of the evening, after making their special "AEW Exclusive Entrances" on the company's YouTube channel just before tonight's episode went on the air.

We see Darby jump off to a good offensive start over Quen of Private Party in the early goings. This doesn't last long, however, as Quen ends up taking over the action shortly thereafter.

As Quen continues to work over Allin, we hear Taz and Ricky Starks talk on commentary about how Allin is as durable as they come, noting he is exceptional when it comes to handling punishment. We head to a mid-match commercial break as the action continues.

We return from the break to see Allin on the top-rope with Quen. He immediately executes a big superplex off the top. He moves into a submission attempt, however the action quickly resumes back on the feet.

A back-flipping knee-drop from Quen slows down Allin's momentum. Quen controls things for a bit from there once again, as he continues to show off his impressive offensive arsenal.

He hits a crazy flip-over spot, however he spends too much time recovering / admiring his work, which allows Allin to hit a big move that buys himself some time. Both guys are slow to get up, but it is Darby who is up first.

We see Darby heading to the top-rope, only for Isiah Kassidy to distract him upon getting up there. Sting runs over and sends Kassidy into the steel barricade to get him out of the picture.

Darby ends up knocking to the floor anyways, as the distraction from Kassidy bought Quen enough time to recover and shove Allin to the floor outside of the ring. Quen then heads to the top and hits an insane 450-splash to Allin on the floor.

Back in the ring, the announcers talk like they have been all-match-long about Allin's injured ribs / mid-section. Quen heads to the top but leaps off with a high spot, only to miss and wind up directly into a Fujiwara armbar from Allin. Allin cranks back on the hold and Quen taps out.

Winner: Darby Allin

After The Match: The Hardy Boyz Are Back!

When the match wraps up, we see the A.F.O. make its' way out, sans-Matt Hardy obviously after the happenings on Dynamite earlier this week.

As Andrade and his Family Office head to the ring to presumably attack Sting and Darby Allin, we hear the familiar sounds of The Hardy Boyz' theme song.

Out comes Jeff and Matt Hardy, the latter of which is dressed up in his old Hardy Boyz gear, as is Jeff. The duo runs off the A.F.O. to end the segment.

The Men Of The Year & Dan Lambert With A Message For Wardlow

We shoot to Dan Lambert and The Men of the Year backstage. Lambert talks first about a storyline from the wrestling business he watched when he was younger relating to what is going on today with Wardlow and The Men of the Year.

He goes on to assure Wardlow that the new TNT Champion, Scorpio Sky, will be getting the "W" when the two meet for the title next week.

"All Ego" Ethan Page tells Wardlow that he'll be defending two titles next week -- the TNT Championship and his undefeated streak.

The segment wraps up with Scorpio Sky assuring Wardlow that nothing will change after they share the ring, as he will leave with his TNT title in tact and will remain the face of TNT. He tells us to get used to it, snaps his fingers, and we head to another commercial break.

A Message From The House Of Black

We return from the break to a quick vignette featuring The House of Black. Malakai Black talks, then Brody King and finally, Buddy Matthews.

They appear to be addressing "The Bastard" PAC with threats of blacking his eye again with mist and taking over.

Mercedes Martinez vs. Jamie Hayter

Now we shoot back inside the arena and head directly down to the ring, where the competitors of our next bout are already standing.

We see Mercedes Martinez on one side of the ring and Jamie Hayter in the other. The bell sounds to get this women's bout off-and-running.

After a slow start, we see Hayter run into a big boot from Martinez in the corner. This leads to Martinez taking over as we head to a mid-match commercial break.

When we return from the break, we see Martinez hitting a Three Amigos style spot. Hayter recovers soon after and begins shifting the momentum in her favor.

Things build to the finish, which sees Hayter nearly take Martinez's head off with a stiff lariat after Rebel distracts the referee.

Winner: Jamie Hayter

After The Match: Britt Baker Attacks, Thunder Rosa Makes The Save

Once the match wraps up, we see Dr. Britt Baker, Jamie Hayter and Rebel look to add insult to injury, as they set Martinez up for a curb stomp onto the AEW Women's Championship.

Before they can do so, however, out comes Thunder Rosa to make the save. She runs into the ring with a steel chair and runs off the aforementioned heel trio.

Hikaru Shida With A Message For Serena Deeb

Now we see a vignette featuring Hikaru Shida. She delivers a message to Serena Deeb, essentially letting her know she is going to be her worst nightmare now that she's back. After this, we head to another commercial break.

Keith Lee vs. QT Marshall

As we settle back in from the break, we see Keith Lee make his way out and head down to the ring for our next match of the evening.

Already in the ring is Lee's opponent, QT Marshall. Lee blasts him with a headbutt to start things off with a violent bang.

Lee goes on to dominate the offense for a bit, however Marshall ends up slowing him down and shifting the momentum to his favor.

Marshall heads to the top-rope and comes flying off with a picture-perfect missile dropkick. Lee is slow to recover but eventually does. He nearly takes Marshall out of his wrestling boots with a huge lariat off the ropes.

He hoists Marshall up after the lariat. He gets a little too close to the ring ropes, leading to Aaron Solo grabbing his boot from the ringside area. This lets Marshall escape.

He peppers Lee with some leg kicks and then signals for the Diamond Cutter. He leaps with intentions of hitting one, but Lee sees it coming and counters.

He sends Marshall into the ropes and blasts him with a shoulder tackle. He follows that up with his finisher for the 1-2-3. Nice win for Lee.

Winner: Keith Lee

After The Match: Keith Lee Takes Apart The Factory, But Not Team Taz

After the match, Aaron Solo tries to ambush Lee from behind, but Lee shoulder tackles him inside-out as well.

Nick Comoroto tries his luck next and while he fares a bit better, Lee ultimately manhandles him as well, leaving him laying with a big power bomb.

Finally, he grabs Solo and launches him over the ropes, where he splashes onto Marshall and Comoroto taking them out.

Team Taz members Ricky Starks, who leaves his spot at the commentary desk, and Powerhouse Hobbs hit the ring.

The two now and begin a two-on-one beatdown of Lee. Lee ends up taking Starks out but then walks into a big spinebuster from Hobbs.

Mark Henry Talks To Tonight's Main Event Participants

We shoot backstage to the weekly pre-main event split-screen interview ahead of our main event of the evening.

Mark Henry introduces Shane "Sw3rve" Strickland and "The Premier Athlete" Tony Nese.

Nese starts off complaining about how Strickland got the big hyped up debut at Revolution, but he didn't when he came to AEW.

He claims he deserved it and Strickland did not. He asks what Strickland is, some kind of rapper, and points out that this is a wrestling show. He vows to beat his ass.

Strickland responds by saying he will beat down Nese on Friday's just like he did when they were on 205 Live.

He claims he's not just a rapper, but a mogul. He finishes up on that note, which prompts "The World's Strongest Man" to wrap up the segment with his catchphrase, "There's been enough talk, it's time for the main event!"

Tony Nese vs. Shane "Sw3rve" Strickland

We head to the ring as we hear the sounds of the entrance music of Tony Nese. "The Premier Athlete" heads to the ring and settles inside as his theme fades down.

Now the music for his opponent hits. This brings out Shane "Sw3rve" Strickland, who settles into the ring and his music cuts off.

The bell sounds and we're off-and-running with this one. Strickland looks good early on, which prompts Nese to slide out to the floor for a quick breather.

We see Nese utilize some cheap heel tactics as we head to a mid-match commercial break with the action still in progress.

We're back from the break and we see Nese still dominating the offense. He heads to the top-rope and comes flying off with a crazy 450 splash. He goes for another big spot but Strickland avoids it.

Strickland shifts the offensive momentum into his favor now and blasts "The Premier Athlete" with a running kick to the dome.

He heads to the top-rope and hits a big high spot and then follows up with the Sw3rve stomp for the pin fall victory.

It was hard-earned, but he moves to 1-0 after his first in-ring appearance for AEW regardless. Good debut for Strickland.

He celebrates his win as Excalibur plugs next week's AEW programs and we head off the air. Thanks for joining us!

Winner: Shane "Sw3rve" Strickland
