AEW Rampage Results (5/24/2024): Mechanics Bank Arena, Bakersfield, CA.

Results by Joseph Collins and

Excalibur, Chris Jericho, Tony Schiavone and Big Bill were on commentary.


PAC defeated Rocky “Azucar” Romero (7:13)

PAC is so smooth at everything he does. PAC set up Romero with a low bridge to send him to the outside, then hit a Asai moonsault that got a standing ovation from Big Bill.

After a split-screen break, Romeo caught PAC with a back heel kick and sliced bread for a near fall. Romero countered a suplex attempt with a back slide for anear fall. On commentary, Jericho clarified that Big Bill’s new name is “Redwood.” Romeo drilled PAC with a tornado DDT (beautiful selling from PAC) and hit a pescado for a near fall. PAC escaped a Sliced Bread #2, hit a boot and dropped Romero with a German suplex. And just like that, PAC locked in the Brutalizer and Romero tapped out.

After the match, the other members of Death Triangle came out to celebrate PAC’s victory. PAC grabbed a mic and called out the Gunn Brothers.

– Chris Jericho cut a promo from the desk about his three way match at Double or Nothing. Katsuyori Shibata ran out for the back, but Big Bill cut him off. Hook’s came up from behind Jericho and pulled him into the crowd, and they brawled to the back.

– Renee Paquette tried to interview Hook and Shibata, but Samoa Joe interrupted again to talk trash to Hook. Hook storms off, and Shibata uses his phone to tell Rene he’s going to see Carrot Top while in Vegas.

– Matt Menard joined commentary for the rest of the show, since Jericho and Big Bill were run off after the opening match.

Samoa Joe defeated Dom Kubrick (1:20)

Joe shrugged off a dropkick, then floored Kubrick with a back elbow. After a flurry of offense, Joe hit the Muscle Buster to get the pinfall.

– Rene Paquette interviewed Deonna Purrazzo, who challenged Thunder Rosa for the Double or Nothing Buy In. The match was made official for the Buy In later in the show.

Rush defeated Isiah Kassidy (7:57 aired)

Rush hit the shotgun dropkick right away. He could have pinned Kassidy, but instead kicked him to the floor and whipped him into the steel barricades around ringside. Rick Knox did his usual bang-up job of enforcing the rules, allowing Rush to whip Kassidy and choke him with a power cable. Rush continued to dominate Kassidy during the split-screen break.

After the commercial break, Kassidy got some offense in and hit some kind of neckbreaker for a near fall. Kassidy hit a senton for another near fall, and Rush cut off the comeback with a headbutt. They took the fight to the ring apron and exchanged chops until Rush caught Cassidy with a belly to belly suplex that sent him to the floor.

Back in the ring, Rush hit the diving shotgun dropkick for the pinfall. Rush barely gave Kassidy anything.

– Arkady Aura interviewed the Gates of Agony and Brian Cage. Cage cut a pretty good promo for his trio. Seemed like it might be setting up something with them and The Acclaimed for a six man match.

Willow Nightingale & Kris Statlander (w/ Stokley Hathaway) defeated Anna Jay & Alex Windsor (9:23)

Windsor is a top star for Rev Pro. Anna Jay’s gear looked patriotic. Nightingale caught Windsor with a pounce early. Anna Jay got the tag and Statlander dropped her with a back suplex. Jay caught Statlander with a neckbreaker in the ropes. The fight went to the floor, where Jay sent Statlander into the ring steps.

After a split-screen break, Windsor controlled Statlander with a cravat. Statlander got the hot tag to Nightingale, who caught Jay with a shotgun dropkick off the middle rope. Nightingale missed the cannonball in the corner, and Windsor caught her with a Shining Wizard for a near fall. Nightingale caught Windsor with a stiff clothesline, then finished her off with the gutwrench powerbomb for the pinfall.

Nightingale’s celebration was cut short by Mercedes Mone who kicked off her shoes and ran to the rign to brawl with Nightingale and Statlander. Mone tried to hit her new finisher (called the Mone Maker) which looked ridiculous for her to try on Statlander who was so much bigger than her. Eventually the gaggle of officials came out to break up the right. Mone celebrated in the ring with the TBS title.

For Collision tomorrow night, FTR and Bryan Danielson will take on Jeff Jarrett, Jay Lethal and Satnam Singh.
