Following AEW Dynamite in Fresno, California, the company taped Rampage to air on Friday the 20th of January with two champions in action.
On Dynamite on the 18th of January, the company and many stars paid tribute to the late ROH star Jay Briscoe. Although reports have suggested the company was banned from producing a bigger tribute to the star on TBS.
Dynamite also saw two big heel turns take place with two stars taking issue with some of the AEW homegrown talents, assaulting one such star following a match.
AEW Rampage will see two champions in action as TBS Champion Jade Cargill teams with Leila Grey while ROH World Six Man Champion Brian Cage also faced off with a former IMPACT Wrestling star. The full spoilers for the show (courtesy of f4wonline) can be found below:
- Jungle Boy Jack Perry defeated Ethan Page. Matt Hardy and Isiah Kassidy were at ringside. Towards the end of the match, Page grabbed Matt Hardy’s hair to avoid a code red. Hardy shoved Page, leading Perry to hit the code red for the win.
- Tony Schiavone interviewed Eddie Kingston and Ortiz. They argued, with Ortiz saying their trainer Homicide would be mad at him, calling Kingston a fake tough guy. Kingston attacked Ortiz with a steel chair and walked out.
- Brian Cage defeated Willie Mack

There was a Jay Briscoe Tribute Show filmed under the ROH banner following Rampage and it will air on Honor Club at some point in the future. Full spoilers for that show can be found here.
