AEW Rampage Results 8/11 - Saraya Vs. Skye Blue, International Championship Match

Welcome to Wrestling Inc.'s results for "AEW Rampage" on August 11, 2023, coming to you from the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio!

The next participant in the AEW Women's World Championship match at All In will be decided tonight, as Saraya collides with Skye Blue. Titleholder Hikaru Shida ensured she would be walking into the upcoming London pay-per-view as champion when she defeated Anna Jay this past Wednesday on "AEW Dynamite" while Saraya's fellow Outcasts teammate Toni Storm secured her spot in the match with a bye.

Orange Cassidy will be defending the AEW International Championship against Johnny TV. Cassidy last put his title up for grabs on the July 26 episode of "Dynamite", during which he successfully retained against Mogul Embassy's AR Fox. Meanwhile, this will be Johnny's first singles match in AEW since making his return to the company on the June 23 episode of "Rampage".

Speaking of Mogul Embassy, one of Fox's teammates will be in action tonight as Brian Cage takes on Darby Allin. Allin has had issues with Swerve Strickland for a number of weeks now, ramping up after Swerve and Fox blindsided Nick Wayne during a training session last week.

Additionally, Ring of Honor World Tag Team Champions Aussie Open looks to gain some momentum heading into their All In Zero Hour Pre-Show against MJF and Adam Cole as they take on opponents who have yet to be named. MJF and Cole threw out the challenge to Kyle Fletcher and Mark Davis on Wednesday (despite their AEW World Championship match on the same night) as they continue their quest to capture tag team gold.

We are live! Chris Jericho, Excalibur and Tony Schiavone greet audiences at home as Darby Allin and Brian Cage wait inside the ring.

Darby Allin vs. Brian Cage (w/ Prince Nana)

The bell rings and Allin wastes no time. He delivers a dropkick right out of the gate, then sends him crashing to the outside and looks for a tope suicida. Cage stays on his feet, then sends Allin crashing into the barricade and holds him in a delayed vertical suplex position before planting him inside the ring and following it up with a superplex. He tosses Allin into the corner, then fires off stomps and delivers a chop.

The action spills to the outside, and Cage rains down right hands. Allin sends Cage crashing into the ring steps, then stomps on his hand and jumps him. Cage gets him off by sending him through the timekeepers area. He then plants Allin on the ring apron spine first, and stomps on his neck. 

Back from the break, Allin delivers a Tornado Scorpion Death Drop. Cage fires back with a pair of powerbombs and ascends to the top, then delivers a Coffin Drop to Cage on the apron. He gets Cage back inside the ring and delivers a Code Red, then ascends to the top. Nana trips him, opening the door for Cage to get him on his shoulders and plant him. He goes for a pin, but Allin kicks out. Cage then gets Allin up on his shoulders and ascends to the top rope. Allin counters into a Crucifix Bomb, but Cage rolls through. Allin then rolls up Cage for the win.

Winner: Darby Allin

After the match, Luchasaurus blindsides Allin as Christian Cage watches on from backstage.

The bell rings and Cassidy delivers a modified arm drag. Johnny rolls to the outside to regroup with QTV before Cameron distracts the referee and QTV surrounds Cassidy. The referee catches them, and ejects Harley Cameron, QT Marshall, and Aaron Solo from ringside. Wheeler Yuta then tries to interfere, but the referee catches him as well and sends him away. Johnny takes advantage and delivers a right hand to Cassidy on the outside, then plants him on the apron.

Back from the break, Yuta has joined the commentary booth as Cassidy sends Johnny into the top turnbuckle face first. Johnny trips Cassidy, and Cassidy hangs himself from the bottom rope and Johnny looks for a kick. Cassidy ducks it and goes flying to level Johnny on the outside, then dumps him back in and ascends to the top. He delivers a crossbody, but Johnny delivers The Moonlight Drive. He follows it up with a kick and looks for Starship Pain, but Cassidy rolls out of the way and ascends to the top. He delivers a diving DDT, and a Tornado DDT, then follows it up with Orange Punch and Beach Break for the win.

Winner (and still): Orange Cassidy

After the match, Cassidy grabs a mic and asks Yuta what's taking him so long to get down to the ring. He tells him he wants to punch his face in, and Yuta makes his way down as the rest of Blackpool Combat Club appears at ringside and join Yuta on the ramp. Yuta grabs a mic and says BCC could make sure Cassidy leaves in an ambulance, but it's a little beneath them and it would accomplish nothing. He says he wants to hurt Cassidy emotionally and mentally, then says he wants to take the only thing Cassidy cares about. He challenges him to an International Championship match in Nashville next week.

Aussie Open then makes their way down to the ring. The Outrunners are already waiting inside.

Davis and Turbo Floyd The bell rings and Davis lands a boot. Fletcher and Davis then deliver a double back elbow to him. The action then spills to the outside, and Aussie Open sends The Outrunners crashing into one another.

Fletcher tags in and delivers a thrust kick to an interfering Truth Magnum. He then delivers a cutter off the middle rope with some assistance from Davis. Davis then tags in, and Aussie Open delivers a double lariat to Floyd. They follow it up with the Coriolis for the win.

Winners: Aussie Open

After the match, Aussie Open grabs a mic. Davis asks if Adam Cole and MJF really think they have what it takes to call themselves a real tag team before Fletcher says the only reason fans care about the two of them is because of MJF inevitably backstabbing Cole. He then accepts their challenge for an ROH World Tag Team Championship match on the All In Zero Hour Pre-Show, then confidently says Aussie Open will walk out still holding the title.

Back from the break, The Outcasts head down to the ring. Skye Blue follows.

The bell rings and the two lock up. Saraya slaps Blue, but Blue executes a back slide. Saraya kicks out and Blue delivers a sunset flip before the two take turns rolling one another up. Blue then lands a crossbody, but Saraya rolls out of the ring for a breather. The Outcasts check on her, and both Ruby Soho and Toni Storm are caught with a kick from Blue. She then looks for a cannonball off the apron, but Storm pulls Saraya out of the way and Blue goes crashing onto the floor.

Back from the break, Saraya delivers a step-up knee. She lands a running knee, but Blue rocks her with a step-up knee of her own and an enziguri. Saraya fires back with a thrust kick and locks in a Cloverleaf, but Blue makes her way to the bottom rope to break the submission. Blue then delivers a thrust kick and Code Blue, then goes for a pin. The referee misses the count, as he is being distracted which opens the door for Soho to spray the green spray paint into Blue's eyes and Saraya to follow it up with a cradle DDT for the win.

Winner: Saraya

After the match, The Outcasts continue to beat down Blue as the show goes off the air.
