They keep kicking him then Lethal puts a Figure Four on Darby through the door!!! Officials come in to break it up as we cut to the commentators.
Tony Schiavone is in the ring with William Regal. MJF’s music hits immediately! He gets a crazy loud pop from the crowd as he swaggers his way down to the ring. He joins Regal in the ring as Regal is stanced up with knucks! MJF just wants to talk he says; “Here’s what’s gonna happen. Here’s a story, and you’re going to listen to it. When I was 19, training in the business one fateful day I get pulled aside they say “Congrats, we got you WWE extra work” It was an opportunity; I packed my best gear and suit. Me and the extras were all together and greeted by William Regal. You told us you are going to have tryout matches, up against randoms in a line I was going on second. Arn Anderson, Dean Malenko, Adam Pearce and William Regal were there. Malenko rang the bell and said get out. My turn I was shaking, I was fighting for my life not a contract. Pro wrestling is my LIFE! After it was over, I was victorious but you looked at me like I had eight heads. You said follow me, just us. Kid you’ve got three minutes to sell yourself. GO. Boy did I. Your jaw was on the floor, and kid I am getting you a job here. Then what happened? I was no longer going to be looked at as a 5 foot nothing ADD riddled Jew Boy, I was a superstar! I said I was 19 and you said kid I’m sorry you’re much too young.” “My heart stopped, one fell swoop.” Crowd is chanting “You Fucked up” to Regal! He lists people who Regal got hired by WWE; and had MJF send him matches and promos to Regal for months but Regal on month 3; he recites an email Regal sent to him.
“I am a very busy man. I just had to watch you show me your acting skills. DO not reply to this but how will this make me say “Let’s hire Max” But unfortunately the game has changed and the WWE hires the best talent but until you’re one of them stop sending me your stuff. William Regal.” He screams how he sent it to a 19 year old whose dreams were crushed. He wanted to quit everything; wrestling and his life! Heavy heavy stuff here from MJF. He couldn’t have the naysayers win so that’s why he is here. “You’re a sad withered old man who got fired. Now you snuck into my company like a rat and stuck to talent like a succubus. I AM MJF! A 26 YEAR OLD GENERATIONAL TALENT!” He says he needs the email when he needs a laugh because Regal is just a joke to him. “He’s MJF and he’s better than you and you know it!” Crowd is absolutely bonkers!!!!!!
Regal has a mic and says “Job done. You mentioned being a child. At 16, I left home and fought grown men. I wasn’t casting you aside. I saw somebody who was going to be a big star. I wanted to light a fire under your ass. You can’t have grown men smashing your face in now, so I needed to do that.” He screams about how he fought as a child; and if “an email is what it took and you held onto it for 7 years you’ve had it easy Sunshine.” Regal says he mastered talking and mastered wrestling and what a great talent he is. He calls himself the ODV and says he wouldn’t touch Tony unlike MJF. He says MJF took shortcuts; just because he’s getting paid doesn’t prove anything.” He calls out Max hiring people and using the ring, and says to beat everyone but if you want to be the Devil….Show the world, right now” He turns his back!!!! He goads MJF into hitting him and he puts on the ring! Regal stretchers his arms out and MJF hesitates and Regal turns around and says “You still have a lot to prove.”
MJF stands in the middle of the ring completely disheartened and upset as he slowly makes his way out of the ring as we see an ROH Title promo package including Castle’s promo on Rampage last week.
Renee is in the back with The Acclaimed and they talk about the whole Mark Sterling debacle. They welcome Renee to AEW; and this Friday it’s going to be titles vs. trademark as The Acclaimed take on the Varsity Athletes!
We see a sit down earlier with Bryan and Wheeler with Renee. Bryan says it isn’t fun losing to Jericho because ROH was part of the reason I am who I am. He also says he has high hopes for Garcia, and with the right guidance could be the best ever. Wheeler looks upset as Wheeler asks him how he’s surprised about last week and says Garcia was using him; he says “When I put this sweater on it means a lot to Mox and Claudio. Doesn’t mean much to you clearly.” Yuta walks off as we head to the ring.
ROH World Title Match: Dalton Castle vs. Chris Jericho (c)
BOYS! Making his way to the ring is the effervescent Dalton Castle atop a pedestal! Ian Riccaboni is on commentary of course. Castle grabs the camera and spins while talking trash to Jericho. The Boys escort him into the ring; and the crowd is loving the Peacock Power!
“The epitome of Sports….EnnerTAINers.” Judas hits as the crowd starts their sing-a-long; Jericho is flanked by Jake Hager tonight as Jericho is out in full JAS garb. The Boys fan Castle off to start as they observe the Code of Honor but Castle has a gift; a nice middle finger! Jericho and Castle start chopping but Castle comes with a couple shoulder blocks and a hip throw. He gets tossed out by Jericho as Castle resets. Castle runs around ringside and hypes himself up and comes back with a big suplex, and follows through with another. Castle with several gutwrenches just swinging Jericho around and finally slams him for a two count. Tazz runs him down for the amount of suplexes; Castle launches a Boy into Hager! He sends another!

Jericho whipped in the corner but side steps Castle and he goes overboard. Castle gets Jericho laying on the turnbuckle and kicks him off! Castle with a bottom rope dive then a swinging hurricanrana! The Boys swarm Hager! Hager gets his hat knocked off and mid fight puts it on. They stole his hat! Hager is pissed and screams don’t touch my hat! He absolutely kills The Boys and puts the hat on. Tazz is actually losing his mind. Jericho gets countered into the Julie Newmar (Chickenwing cobra clutch) but Jericho fights out and locks on the Walls! Castle struggles to the ropes as they talk about his previously broken back. He gets to the ropes as Jericho celebrates.

If you have a title; you’re getting a bitch slap from my hand of destruction.” The commentators run down the card for Rampage this week as well as next week’s Dynamite including Danielson vs. Guevara!
In the back the Baddies are looking for the belt as Jade steps in; they say Nyla will be on Rampage and Jade says so is she. She says “Tony, tell her to bring my belt unless you’re chickenshit, or I’ll hold your show hostage. Your choice.”
AEW World Title Match: “Hangman” Adam Page vs. Jon Moxley (c)

Page walks out and meets Moxley and they start brawling in the crowd! Hangman with a boot to Moxley and a snap suplex on the concrete! The crowd is booing now as they make their way through the crowd. Page walks onto a ledge and taunts then hits a HUGE moonsault onto Moxley as the crowd jeers and we go to commercial!
We are officially underway as Mox and Page are ringside as Page sends Mox into the steps. He starts punching away at Mox who is now bleeding; both men in the ring now as Mox is suplexed again for a two count. Moxley is just getting wrecked right now; Mox welcomes Page’s attacks and Page obliges! Mox counters a powerbomb into a Figure Four!

Back from commercial Mox and Page are slugging away on the top rope as Page headbutts Mox and hits an Avalanche Fallaway Slam! 1…2…NO! Mox kicks out. Crowd is chanting “Let’s Go Moxley!” Hangman avoids a German and hits a sick Lariat but Moxley comes back with a King Kong Knee! Both men are down as the ref and doctors are checking on Page now as Page hasn’t moved. They ring the bell due to referee stoppage; it looks like Hangman may be legitimately injured but we don’t know. Mox celebrates as Regal walks down to the ring and Mox celebrates. They cut to the commentary team to fill for time as they brought a gurney out for Page and they go to a Rampage promo.
WINNER: Jon Moxley (c)
They run down next week’s Dynamite and mention the crowd gave Page a round of applause as he was stretchered out. We cut to Mox in the ring as the commentators are still worried; especially Tazz he looks quite shook up. Mox praises Page and wishes him well and a safe recovery. He says it takes guts and you gotta risk everything when you step in the ring. He says he’s live and says earlier someone was talking shit but the Yankees finished early, so MJF get your suburban ass out here right now.”
MJF’s music hits! He comes down with the ref and the chip!!!! MJF is still in his street clothes; Mox looks like he agrees!
MJF runs up and grabs a mic; he talks about being a man and “I ain’t cashing it in now I want you 110%. I am cashing it in at FULL GEAR! For the first time in my miserable life; I’m gonna earn it.” MJF hypes up the crowd as they go nuts! Regal smiles. “Mox says you’re gonna earn the heel of my boot, you earned my fist up your ass” the mic keeps cutting out. “You have earned a date with destiny, a date with Jon Moxley, we’re gonna find out what you’re made of and make you an example and getting in the ring with me is hell.”
Mox and MJF scream at each other as we go off the air.
