In the main event of Rampage, Andrade El Idolo and PAC went one-on-one and PAC got the win after holding Andrade in a roll-up for the three count. Immediately following the match, the lights in the arena went out and Malakai Black was standing in between PAC and Andrade. Black targeted PAC and was going to help Andrade take PAC out. Before he could do so, Arn Anderson came down to the ring to distract Malakai so Cody Rhodes could make the run-in from behind. Malakai and Cody are competing against one another on the 10/23 Dynamite.
