AEW Rampage Results | Friday, January 14, 2022

Jon Moxley def. Ethan Page

This match was felt like it dragged, possibly because the babyface Jon Moxley—whom the crowd was really behind—was being dominated by Page for long stretches.

Moxley looked good in the ring, and didn’t appear to show ring rust despite the announcers using this as a talking point and a story of the match.

Following Moxley’s win, Page seemed to be considering a handshake—which could have been a sweet moment following Moxley’s return win—but Moxley promptly gave him the Paradigm Shift.

Bryan Danielson seems to have emerged as Jon Moxley’s next opponent. I can’t wait for the promos for that feud.

Trent Beretta def. Nick Jackson

The Best Friends have been dominated by The Elite. Part of me thinks Trent has a chance to win this match just to make this feud more competitive.

Nick Jackson had one of the most impressive nearfalls when he kicked out at the absolute last millisecond. Some in the crowd booed because they were convinced he kicked out late. He didn’t.

Not to be outdone by Nick Jackson, Beretta kicked out of the 450 Splash at the final second. I don’t remember the last time a match was given such a spark by a pair of nearfalls.

Hook def. Serpentico

Similar to WWE, AEW is unsubtly promoting hook with a tagline. Hook is now to be known as the “cold-hearted handsome devil.”

Sepentico was defeated the second Hook’s music came on. The match didn’t last long and, somehow, Hook seems even more over.

Jade Cargill def. Anna Jay—TBS Championship

Anna Jay had a clever line during the pre-match promos where she referred to herself as “that Bitch Slayer.”

This is a great opportunity to have Jade Cargill squash Anna Jay, similar to how dominant they made Hook look. Having said that, this match began with about 10 minutes left in the show.

John Silver is just one of many male AEW stars whom Jade Cargill towers over.

The finishing sequence to this match was great, and despite their relative inexperience, Cargill and Anna Jay were great in the 10 minutes they were given.
