After the December 28th 2022 edition of AEW Dynamite, matches were taped for the December 30th 2022 edition of AEW Rampage. Here are the results courtesy of PWInsider.com’s Billy Krotchsen…
* The announcers are Tony Schiavone, Paul Wight, Excalibur and Kip Sabian.
* The opening match is All-Atlantic Champion Orange Cassidy vs. Trent Beretta, with Chucky T. Cassidy scored the pin after Penelope Ford distracted Beretta. The idea was that Kip Sabian was orcestrating issue between the Best Friends.
* Kip Sabian with Penelope Ford pinned an unannounced competitor with The Orange Punch, obviously to mock Cassidy.
* Tony Schiavone interviewed Jon Moxley inside the ring. He said that when he concussed Hangman Page, he slept like a baby because the BCC works harder and delivers better than anyone else, so they deserve to sleep like babies. When the bell rings, they don’t care about the safety of the athletes. He said Page can’t get cleared because he’s hurt but Moxley has been hurt for a decade and doesn’t care. He challenges Hangman to face him in Los Angeles at the Forum and tells him he’ll be waiting if Page can get cleared.
* AEW TBS Champion Jade Cargill defeated Kiera Hogan with Jaded. Red Velvet walked off without Jade and Layla Grey, so the idea appeared to be she was done with the group.
* The main event is Swerve Strickland vs. Wheeler Yuta. Swerve has Mogul Associates with him. Yuta was alone. They had a long back and forth bout. Strickland scored the pin after a low blow and his Driver finisher.
