In the main event of Rampage on TNT, Scorpio Sky pinned Chris Jericho to get the win for himself, Ethan Page and former UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior dos Santos. As Jericho had Sky in the ‘Walls of Jericho’, Paige VanZant climbed on the ring apron and distracted referee Aubrey Edwards which led to Jorge Masvidal delivering a running knee to Jericho. Post-match, Santana and Ortiz made the save as American Top Team was beating down The Inner Circle.
