FTR accepted Roppongi Vice’s challenge for the ROH tag titles and will defend their titles against Trent Beretta & Rocky Romero next Wednesday on Dynamite, which also takes place from Las Vegas. In the promo, FTR stated they also want to win the IWGP tag titles just like Roppongi Vice stated they were after those belts and the AEW tag titles after they win the ROH version.

There was a graphic on the screen listing next Friday’s Rampage for a 5:30 p.m. ET start time, although it was never stated by the broadcasters. The TNT schedule is also listing the same start time for next week, which would mean fans attending the show will be watching the show at 2:30 in the afternoon in Las Vegas.

In the main event, Bryan Danielson & Jon Moxley defeated Matt Sydal & Dante Martin after Moxley hit the Paradigm Shift on Martin.

To end the show, the Jericho Appreciation Society brawled with the Blackpool Combat Club, Eddie Kingston, Santana & Ortiz. They did an angle where Bryan Danielson’s leg was caught between the ring and the ramp, which they aired as a digital exclusive after Rampage ended:

In the other matches, Shawn Spears pinned Big Damo (Killian Dain in WWE) and the House of Black beat Evil Uno, Preston Vance & Fuego del Sol.
