AEW Rampage Results 8/18 - The Outcasts Vs. Hikaru Shida & Skye Blue, Rey Fenix Vs. Komander

Welcome to Wrestling Inc.'s results for "AEW Rampage" on August 18, 2023, coming to you from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee!

AEW Women's World Champion Hikaru Shida will be joining forces with Skye Blue to take on Ruby Soho and Toni Storm during Night Two of Fight For The Fallen. Blue will surely be looking for some retribution tonight after Soho and Storm not only aided their fellow Outcasts teammate Saraya in defeating her on last Friday's "Rampage", but helped her punch her ticket to the All In Four-Way Women's Championship bout.

Before they put their ROH World Tag Team Championship on the line against MJF and Adam Cole on the All In Zero Hour Pre-Show, Aussie Open looks to gain some momentum heading into the match as they defend their title against Brother Zay and Ethan Page. Kyle Fletcher and Mark Davis have been titleholders since dethroning The Lucha Brothers in a Four-Way match at ROH Death Before Dishonor 2023.

Speaking of The Lucha Brothers, Rey Fenix will be colliding with Komander in a first time ever singles matchup. Elsewhere, Sammy Guevara will be in action against an unnamed opponent. Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D. also has something to share tonight after she secured the final spot in the AEW Women's World Championship match in London, England during this past Wednesday's episode of "AEW Dynamite".

We are live! Excalibur and Tony Schiavone greet audiences at home as Komander and Rey Fenix are already waiting in the ring.

Storm tags in and Soho fires off stomps. She continues wearing down Blue before Soho tags back in and fires off more stomps. Storm attacks Blue while the referee is distracted.

She sends Soho crashing to the mat off her shoulders, then follows it up with a kick to her head. An interfering Storm levels her with a German suplex, but Blue takes her down with an enziguri. Soho then levels Blue with a Saito suplex before Shida rocks her with a knee to her jaw. Blue tags in and Soho sprays her with the green spray paint. She sends her into the middle turnbuckle, then tags in Storm. Storm delivers a Hip Attack and goes for a pin, but Shida breaks the fall and becomes legal.

Shida and Storm go back and forth with forearms. Shida gains the upper hand and unloads on Storm, then runs the ropes. Saraya grabs her ankle, allowing for Storm to deliver a high kick. Soho tags in and The Outcasts look for a double power bomb, but Blue saves Shida and plants Soho for the win.
