It’s 11:48 PM ET and it’s time for Rampage. Excalibur, Chris Jericho, Taz, and Ricky Starks are on commentary.

The Butcher (with The Blade) vs. Darby Allin (with Sting)

Allin uses his speed to elude Butcher but his strikes have little effect. Butcher backs Allin into the corner and hammers him with strikes. Allin rolls to the outside.

Jericho on commentary refers to The Butcher as “Andy Williams”.

Allin is taking a while to get back into the ring. Allin finally lures Butcher to the outside, goes into the ring, and takes him down with a tope suicida.

Allin goes for a springboard Coffin Drop from the second rope. Butcher catches Allin and slams him down for a 2-count.

Butcher sends Allin to the mat with a straight right hand. Allin bites at Butcher’s hand but Butcher fights him off.

Butcher pulls up Allin, sends him into the corner, and takes him down with a clothesline for a 2-count.

Commentary is mentioning that Butcher’s hand was injured in his last match against Allin. Jericho ponders how many music gigs and money the injury cost Butcher.

Butcher sends Allin to the outside and follows him out. Butcher lines up Allin and takes him down with a lariat. Butcher stares down Sting on the floor as we go to the picture-in-picture break.

Back from the break, Allin dives at Butcher and gets caught in a Texas Cloverleaf. Jericho calls it a “Buffalo Cloverleaf”. Allin is able to nearly crawl to the ropes but Butcher pulls him back and powerbomb Allin without letting go of the hold. Allin again fights to the ropes and breaks the hold.

Allin rolls to the outside. Butcher hoists Allin up and tries for a powerbomb but Allin grabs to stop that. Butcher retakes control by pushing Allin into the ring post. Butcher brings Allin off the apron in a deadlift powerbomb position and swings Allin into the barricade and the steel ring steps.

Still on the floor, Allin dodges a charge by Butcher and Butcher crashes into the steel ring steps. Allin hits a Code Red on the floor. Allin climbs to the top rope and lands a Coffin Rope onto Butcher, who’s still down at ringside.

Allin rolls back into the ring and Butcher can’t beat the 10-count to get back into the ring. Allin gets the win.

Darby Allin defeated The Butcher via count-out

Andrade El Idolo and Jose The Assistant make their entrance. Private Party attacks Allin and Sting from behind. The Hardys run out to make the save.

Matt Hardy gets the microphone and challenges the AHFO to get back in the ring and fight. The AHFO tease that they’ll step into the ring but decide against it.

Matt Hardy calls them “chicken sh*t”. He challenges them to an 8-man Texas Tornado tag team match on next Wednesday’s Dynamite between The Butcher & The Blade & Private Party and The Hardys & Sting & Darby Allin. The AHFO doesn’t give an answer.

Back from the break, we’re backstage with TNT Champion Scorpio Sky, Dan Lambert, and Paige VanZant. PVZ says she looks great, fights great, and prints more money than the Federal Reserve.

Leyla Hirsch vs. Red Velvet

Velvet and Hirsch meet on the entrance ramp and start brawling. Velvet suplexes Hirsch onto the ramp.

Velvet gets Hirsch into the ring and the bell rings to start the match. Velvet hits a standing moonsault for a 2-count.

Hirsch powers Velvet into the corner and lands some strikes. Hirsch whips Velvet into the opposite corner but charges into an elbow by Velvet.

Velvet stomps down Hirsch in the corner and then mounts her for some punches. Hirsch slips out and yanks down Velvet from the second rope. A kick to the chest takes down Velvet in the center of the ring.

We head into the picture-in-picture break.

Back from the break, Velvet wins a striking exchange in the center of the ring and takes down Hirsch with a bulldog for a 2-count.

Velvet goes for a spinning kick. Hirsch ducks it and plants Velvet with a powerbomb. Hirsch follows up with a German suplex and locks on the cross-arm breaker. Velvet barely makes it to the ropes.

Hirsch misses a running knee and tumbles to the outside. Hirsch finds the turnbuckle hook but Kris Statlander shows up and takes it away. That distraction allows Velvet to hit a corkscrew kick and get the pin.

Red Velvet defeated Leyla Hirsch via pinfall

Commentary is pointing out a new demeanor for Statlander but she’s still sporting her facepaint.

We get a vignette with QT Marshall talking about his loss to Hook on the Revolution Buy-In. Next week on Rampage, Marshall says he’ll invite Hook to the ring to accept the QT Marshall Certificate of Accomplishment.

House of Black (Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews) vs. Bear Country (Bear Bronson & Bear Boulder) & Fuego Del Sol

Black starts things off against Bronson. Black quickly takes control and goes to work on Bronson’s arm. Bronson fights back with some strikes and tags in Fuego. Black takes down both of them and catches Boulder coming into the ring too.

Black tags in Matthews who attacks Bronson’s arm. Matthews is toying with Bronson. He tags in King, who lands a senton and clotheslines Bronson over the top rope to the floor.

Fuego made a blind tag but King catches him diving in off the top rope.

Boulder steps up against all three members of the House of Black. He’s quickly overmatched and sent out of the ring.

Fuego tries a sneak attack but runs into a knee strike by Matthews and he pins Fuego for the win.

House of Black (Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews) defeated Bear Country (Bear Bronson & Bear Boulder) & Fuego Del Sol

Chris Jericho says he has a huge announcement about a match for the Jericho Appreciation Society on Wednesday’s Dynamite.

Backstage, Penta Oscuro thanks the House of Black for changing him. It’s far from over between Death Triangle and House of Black.

Mark Henry chats with Keith Lee and Max Caster. Caster says he’s a big guy too and tells Lee to go back to the renaissance fair. Lee says he’s actually a fan of The Acclaimed but when Caster steps into the ring with him they’ll have to bask in his glory.

Keith Lee vs. Max Caster (with Anthony Bowens)

Caster says he’ll have Lee running “like Ted Cruz in a snowstorm”.

Slow start with a lot of taunting by Caster. Lee finally gets ahold of him and hoists Caster up with a knuckle lock. Caster manages to escape and hits a dropkick.

Lee overpowers Caster and takes him down with a shoulder tackle. Caster retaliates with a cheap shot. Lee leapfrogs Caster but Caster hangs onto the ropes to avoid another shoulder tackle.

Powerhouse Hobbs walks out onto the stage as we go into the picture-in-picture break.

Back from the break, Caster is in control after a dropkick that blindsided Lee.

Caster lands a couple of cross-faces. Taz says Caster is channeling “his inner Hook”.

Lee powers back to his feet and quickly catches Caster with a Pounce. Lee heaves Caster across the ring.

Caster retakes control with a superkick. Caster tries to lift Lee but he can’t do it. Strikes by Lee take back control and Lee plants Caster with the Big Bang Catastrophe for the pin.
