After the July 12th 2023 edition of AEW Dynamite, matches were taped for the July 14th 2023 edition of AEW Rampage. Here are the results courtesy of PWInsider.com’s Billy Krotchsen…
* Dustin Rhodes & Keith Lee defeated Angelo Parker & Matt Menard.
* Taya Valkyrie defeated Izzy McQueen in about a minute with a curb stomp. AEW Women’s Champion Toni Storm and Saraya came out and confronted her. Storm congratulated her on the rare win, since she’s lost so much recently. She said Taya was a loser because she was Canadian. Taya told her she should be worried about the title. Toni said she’s beaten everyone so she has nothing to worry about. Taya said they’ve never wrestled but challenged her for the title at Battle of the Belts. Storm said she wasn’t worried about Taya but Taya finally got her to agree to the bout. She said she’s going to embarass Taya in Calgary in front of all her countrymen and family members.
* Lance Archer with Jake Roberts defeated Trent Beretta with Chuck Taylor with Blackout and a big lariat. He laid out Taylor and challenged Orange Cassidy for the AEW International title at Battle of the Belts. He said if Cassidy didn’t come out, his Best Friends were going to die. Cassidy came out to the ring. Archer grabbed him by the throat but Roberts convinced him to stop because he couldn’t win the title that way. Archer came off like a beast here.
* Konosuke Takehita defeated Mentallo.
* In an Owen Hart Foundation Tournament Semi-Final, Willow Nightingale pinned ROH Champion Athena when she attempted a powerbomb but Willow escaped and caught her in a pinfall combination. The finish was meant to be a shock thing and after Athena was screaming about how much she hated Canada at the crowd.
