Commentators Excalibur, Taz & FTW Champion Ricky Starks welcome fans to a Rampage! We kick things off with “The American Dragon” Bryan Danielson in action!

Bryan Danielson vs. Anthony Bowens (w/Max Caster)

Max Caster came out with a great diss for John Laurinaitis after yesterday’s releases in WWE.

Anthony Bowens holds an early-up start with an arm drag. Bryan Danielson hammers down on Bowens’ wrist. He was looking for a hammerlock, but Bowens shut it down. Bowens throws Danielson back down on the mat with a heavy shoulder tackle. Danielson fires back with a high kick to the spine. Bowens escapes the corner and plants a few thunderous chops. Danielson and Bowens tangle to the mat with The American Dragon locking in a cross-arm breaker. They take their fight to the outside, where Bowens drives Danielson face-first onto the apron. Max Caster also involves himself with a big clothesline before the 90-second break.

Bowens maintained control of Danielson throughout the commercial break. Danielson positions Bowens for the repeated shoot kicks. Bowens slumps over and gets hooked with a pin. Bowens fights free at two. Danielson whips up one high kick in the corner but gets caught in The Arrival (twisting DDT). Danielson flings Bowens on top of Caster, then flies down on them with a high crossbody! Danielson executes a missile dropkick off the top and clutches Bowens in the LeBell Lock. Bowens immediately taps out. The American Dragon earns the submission victory!

Winner: Bryan Danielson

Backstage: Tony Schiavone speaks with Andrade El Idolo, MJF and the AAA World Tag Team Champions, FTR. It looks like their partnership is growing each week. FTR calls out Death Triangle before they face the Lucha Brothers next Saturday at Full Gear.

CM Punk and Eddie Kingston’s Face-to-Face Confrontation:

With a microphone in his hand, CM Punk awaits his apology from Eddie Kingston. Kingston’s music starts to play, but he doesn’t come down the ramp. Punk isn’t too surprised. Oh, wait, here comes The Mad King. Punk knows it’s condescending to ask another man for an apology, but he’s enraged Kingston interrupted him. Kingston sarcastically apologizes, saying that he was homesick and wasn’t too worried about pissing off Punk.

Kingston reveals guys like Punk, Samoa Joe, Homicide and the Amazing Red were his heroes in the indies. Now, he sees Punk as a “narcissistic bit-h.” To his surprise, the fans still cheer him on. Punk admits that the guys Kingston listed did watch his work, and they felt he fell short. He then proceeds to call him a “bum.” Kingston retorts with, “Would a bum main event Full Gear (2020)?” Kingston warns he’ll land a big juicy slap if Punk doesn’t wipe the smirk off his face. Kingston lays down the challenge to fight him at Full Gear next Saturday!

Punk thought their future match would happen at Dark: Elevation or Dark because he sees it as more of Kingston’s speed. Punk agrees to his proposal. Kingston ends it with one more statement: If he wins, he wants Punk to take another seven-year hiatus. Punk throws the first punch, and everyone runs out to break up the melee. We’ll see these two clash next Saturday!

Backstage: Christian Cage and Jurassic Express want to see how tough the SuperKliq are. They challenge them to a Falls Count Anywhere fight at Full Gear!

Final Opening-Round Match of the TBS Women’s Championship Tournament: The Bunny vs. Red Velvet

Red Velvet sprints down to the ring and gets things started early. Velvet hits a leg lariat, taking The Bunny down for a brief moment. Their fight spills to the outside right in front of Jade Cargill and “Smart” Mark Sterling. Whoever wins this bout will face Cargill in the quarterfinals. The Bunny slams Velvet into the barricade and gives Cargill a sinister smile. Back in the ring, Velvet bounces back with a stunner at two. The Bunny follows up with a death valley driver for another near-fall attempt. She continues the onslaught with a thrust kick, but Velvet wrenches in the Final Slice to advance in this tournament.

Winner: Red Velvet

And now, the main event!

Adam Cole (w/The Young Bucks) vs. John Silver (w/The Dark Order)

John Silver hoists Adam Cole up and tosses him face-first onto the top rope! Siler flexes his biceps before tossing Cole to the other side of the ring. Cole snapmares Silver on the apron then locks in a camel clutch. The Young Bucks plant a big kiss on him just before the commercial break.

Coming back from the last break, Silver pulls out a flurry of shoot kicks, followed by a backdrop and blue thunder bomb for two! Both men trade forearm smashes. Silver breaks it up with a head-snapping roundhouse kick. Cole swings for the fences with a kneecap brainbuster, but it isn’t enough for him to grab the pinfall victory.

Silver was mere seconds away from winning this thing with a package of offense, but the Young Bucks get Cole to the bottom rope. The Dark Order runs out to confront the Bucks. Cole and Silver hit each other below the belt before Silver tries to bring this thing him with a Spinning Liger Bomb for another near-fall! Cole throws Silver off the top to head for his Panama Sunrise. Silver breaks it up but walks right into a superkick and The Boom. Silver is out cold and doesn’t kick out of the last pin attempt. Cole picks up the pinfall victory.

Winner: Adam Cole

That concludes this week’s Rampage. Thanks for watching!
