by | Sep 9, 2023 | AEW News | 0 comments

This week’s episode sustained the momentum of the Grand Slam Eliminator tournament featuring two significant bouts; Jeff Hardy versus Samoa Joe and Jay Lethal squaring off against Penta El Zero Miedo. Additionally, we witnessed The Young Bucks challenging Daddy Magic and Cool Hang Ang, followed by a dynamic six-woman tag match.

Let’s delve deeper into the events that unfolded on this Friday’s Rampage episode.

Penta El Zero Miedo vs. Jay Lethal

The show kick-started with an electric atmosphere as Lethal and Penta set the ring ablaze, barely containing their competitive spirit as the broadcast commenced. The match faced slight turmoil as Double J intervened, slightly hindering what could have been a smoother showdown between the proficient stars in the ring.

In spite of the disruptions and an episode with his mask, Penta managed to prevail, securing his position in the tournament. The bout was generally commendable but left room for a potentially more captivating encounter.

Winner: Penta El Zero Miedo

Grade: B+

Noteworthy Highlights:

  • Penta graced the ring in striking white attire.
  • Lethal’s association with industry legends like Ric Flair and Jeff Jarrett.
  • Penta’s chops and piledriver were highlights of his performance.

Shida, Blue, and Baker vs. Valkyrie, Bunny, and Anna Jay
An enthralling trios match unfolded as the teams clashed, with Blue and Bunny setting the pace. While the match manifested the characteristic chaos of AEW trios face-offs, it witnessed moments of lackluster coordination.

Despite the turmoil, DMD clinched the victory for her team, leaving Shida discontented in the aftermath.

Winners: Baker, Blue, and Shida

Grade: C

Key Points:

  • A glimpse into Jericho’s backstage relations.
  • Valkyrie’s dominant presence in the ring, amplified by her distinctive hair and formidable spear move.

Highlights:

  • Jericho’s dual role as a commentator and active wrestler offered unique insights.
  • Hager’s apparent disoriented state post separation from Jericho’s backup.

This week’s Rampage might not have surpassed expectations but did not entirely disappoint either. While the central narratives remained largely unaffected, the Grand Slam tournament matches offered some worthy ring actions.

Jericho’s narrative from the commentary desk added an intriguing dimension to the storyline, opening potential avenues for future developments.

For viewers seeking the crux of this week’s action, the opening and closing matches stand as the go-to segments, promising a riveting watch.
