Rampage had a Young Bucks squash where they entered to the Hardys music and dressed in their gear.  They revealed Gangrel as their cornerman, and then Brandon Cut;ler came out to record the match as usual, only he dressed as Lita.
Post-match the Bucks turned on Gangrel and were about to double kick him, when the Hardys came out and made the save.  Gangrel recovered to give Cutler the Implant, and then celebrated with the Hardys.

Rampage main event was the Owen semi-final women's bout between Ruby Soho and Kris Statlander.   Great match with a number of false finishes, including Ruby kicking out at the very last moment of the "sure thing" move Kris uses.  The crowd booed after Ruby got the win.   Post-match they brought out Tony Schiavone to do an in-ring promo with Ruby  but Britt Baker interrupted, carrying a mic.  Baker never said anything because Soho cut her off and said she would pull out all the stops to win, noting how she had to battle her friend to get there, and acknowledged the crowd hating the result.  Soho didn't seem to turn heel and Baker didn't do anything to go babyface.   Sunday's match will likely answer the question of what directions each are headed.   Statlander has been the one doing the more aggressive style and said pre-match with Mark Henry how her friends turned against her.  That was Orange Cassidy and Best Friends, I thought...and I never saw that angle.  It's a little bit confusing to me anyway.

The Matt Facts were a great tough too. It’s just a shame that one of the jobbers in the match was Taylor Rust, who deserves so much better after not being given a fair chance in NXT.

Looks like the AEW crowd are going to instigate a feud between AEW originals and WWE rejects going on the reaction to the main event last night. If this continues, 3ven Britt Baker and MJF will struggle to stay heels. Great promo work by Ruby Soho for really leaning into those boos though.

I wonder who was supposed to appear last night that necessitated Jon Cruz to make an appearance. We haven't seen him since he was doing double duty back in the early pandemic Dark tapings.

William Regal did an interview with a few interesting tidbits. He said just before NXT changed direction, he was about to sign Ricky Starks, Daniel Garcia, and Wheeler Yuta to contracts. Obviously they didn’t fit into 2.0 and he was told that was no longer an option, and then he was released.

He also mentioned that on TV days, he and Bryan Danielson travel to the building together and arrive by 11am, where they get into the ring and work with any young talent that wants it. They stay there until right before doors open and note who comes early to take advantage of the opportunity and who doesn’t.  He said cell phones must be left in the locker room and aren’t allowed at ringside because they demand 100% focus.

This was happening long before Regal ever joined AEW. There is loads of footage on Thunder Rosa's blog of her and Serena Deeb working out with the women before shows.

MJF no-showed a paid meet-and-greet and may be GONE from AEW. Rumor is he was sent home from Vegas.

Sean Ross confirmed that MJF was booked on a flight leaving Las Vegas tonight, but also warned that MJF is so good at blurring the line between work and shoot that he’s not 100% sure what’s going on.

PWInsider:

We have heard from several readers that when he was slated to be at the AEW Fanfest this afternoon in Las Vegas, MJF was seen playing slots at Mandalay Bay instead.

For those who have asked us about reports, initiated at Fightful.com, that MJF has booked a flight out of Vegas for tonight (which would mean he wouldn't appear tomorrow), a source close to the situation confirmed to PWInsider.com that a red-eye flight to Newark, NJ has indeed been booked, but whether he gets on the flight or not remains to be seen.

Obviously, AEW and MJF have quite a bridge to cross before Double or Nothing.

Coming off of their appearance at DoN last night, Rancid is getting some press on the metal sites. Blabbermouth covered it and shared this quote about wrestling from Lars Frederickson:

Asked in a 2014 interview with Vice why he thinks so many punks are also wrestling fans, Lars said: "It's probably because it we all know who the other misfits are. I think it's the excitement. For me, I discovered it because, when I was punk and everyone was making fun of me, wrestling was where I could go to escape. I could watch nine hours of wrestling on a Saturday, you know? You could get the fucking WWF at 10 a.m., then what was next? AWA at noon, then you'd get the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling from 1 to 3 p.m., then you'd get Georgia Championship Wrestling on TBS, and then, maybe if you're lucky, you'd get a Saturday Night's Main Event. Then, at 11 p.m., you'd get a Mid-South thing. So, I would just sit at home on a Saturday and absorb everything; that's where I saw The Freebirds and Ric Flair, and all those guys. I just loved it. I think you're absolutely right that there's strong correlation between punks and wrestling fans, but I don't know what exactly it is. Most punk rockers I know love wrestling."

On Saturday night, Chuck Taylor, John Silver, and Sonny Kiss were invited on stage for the Limp Bizkit concert in Vegas. Taylor and Silver wrestled each other but Kiss stole the show by rapping with Fred Durst as they traded off lines on the song “Full Nelson”.

PWInsider:

The day after AEW debuts in Los Angeles, Jeff Hardy and Frankie Kazarian will take center stage at the world-famous Whisky A Go Go on Sunset Blvd in West Hollywood.

Frankie, with his band Gutter Candy, will open the evenings entertainment with a hard-hitting set of their uniquel brand of metal, followed by Jeff, as PeroxyWhy?Gen, in a special acoustic set.

With capacity of a mere 500, tickets are likely to go fast. http://www.whisyagogo.com

Frankie and Jeff will both meet and greet fans after the show, signing autographs, memorabilia and taking photos.

This show is produced by Rick Bassman and Larger Than Life Management.

CM Punk’s T-shirt choices are always interesting lately. Tonight it’s rocking The Cro-Mags for his World title celebration and that just makes me feel good to see them represented on national TV.

Anthony Bowens was acknowledged as gay on-air for the first time because it’s Pride Month, which is better than Tony Khan discussing his love of joshi for AAPI month (I think he missed the “American” in “Asian American”).
