AEW Rampage : March 11th

Marq Quen and Darby Allin kicked the show off, with Cassidy and Sting in their respective corners. Darby won via submission, in a pretty enjoyable opener.

Andrade and his new clique came down to the ring after the match. It looked like they had some unfinished business with Sting and Darby, but the Hardy Boyz came out to watch their back! I’m still so stoked they are back.

Scorpio Sky has promised to take care of Wardlow, getting revenge on behalf of MJF. It’s good to see that Scorpio is only wearing one belt, unlike Sammy who wore two for his entire reign.

The House of Black cut another promo, and once again I’m not sure what was happening.

The next match featured Jamie Hayter taking on Mercedes Martinez. Britt and Rebel were in Hayter’s corner. Mercedes has no friends, so she was all alone.

In the end, friendship made the difference. Britt and Rebel run interference and worked Mercedes over behind the ref’s back. Hayter wins! Good momentum for Team Baker heading into the cage match next week.

Speaking of, Rosa came out to the ring afterwards with a steel chair. No one did any fighting and exited the ring without incident. Next week though!

Shida hasn’t forgotten about Deeb and is out for revenge, promising to cut off Deeb’s head. Now that’ll be a hardcore match to remember.

The next bout featured Keith Lee taking on QT Marshall, and it was also the first time this episode that we got to see a wrestler enter the ring. Marshall had Solow and Comoroto in his corner.

For all the good that did him! Lee kicked Marshall’s ass. After the fight, Solow and Comoroto jumped Keith Lee. It didn’t work, and they both ended up laid out, just like QT.

Hobbs and Starks decided that they had seen enough, so they left the commentary desk to jump Lee. They fared a little bit better, managing to leave Keith Lee laying on the mat.

Mark Henry is conducting his main event interview, ahead of Swerve Strickland’s debut match against Tony Nese. Remember him? Neither did my wife. Nese is annoyed that he has been overlooked since arriving, and plans to take it out on Swerve.

It was a very impressive match from both competitors. Swerve managed to overcome his opponent and pick up the win in his debut.

It wasn’t a bad episode of Rampage, all the wrestling was very good. Which is important. But, it felt like it was a tad lacking on the entertainment side of things. The balance is important in this business! Hopefully we bounce back with an excellent Dynamite.
