• Half The Crowd Left During AEW Rampage Tapings This Week
After Wednesday’s Dynamite went off the air, All Elite Wrestling taped tonight’s episode of AEW Rampage.
As we noted earlier, Lee Moriarty turned heel by joining forces with Stokely Hathaway at these tapings.
Moriarty went on to defeat Matt Sydal. According to the Wrestling Observer, fans started to leave during this match.
Later, AEW tried to play a pre-taped video 3 times, but it wouldn’t play. Then during the women’s main event, even more fans left and half the crowd was gone by the end.
Due to this, AEW was forced to alter the production of the show.
Below are the complete spoilers for tonight’s show:
– Orange Cassidy & Best Friends def. Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh
Singh & Lethal attacked Cassidy after the match, but TNT Champion Wardlow made the save.
– Ethan Page def. Leon Ruffin
– Lee Moriarty def. Matt Sydal
Stokely Hathaway came out in the middle of the match and helped Lee pick up the win over Matt.
After the match, Moriarty turned heel by joining forces with Hathaway.
– Tony Schiavone interviewed new ROH World Champion Claudio Castagnoli. Cesaro thanked the fans for supporting him.
He then called out fellow Blackpool Combat Club member Wheeler Yuta (who is the ROH Pure Champion) to the ring.
Chris Jericho (who was on commentary) then got up and said he’s sick of the BCC, and that Sports Entertainers beat Wrestlers every time.
Yuta then reminded Jericho that he beat Jericho Appreciation Society’s Daniel Garcia.
This led to Jericho vs. Wheeler being set up for next week’s Dynamite, with Jericho’s Interim AEW World Title shot on the line.
– Anna Jay def. Ruby Soho
