AEW Rampage – Episode 102 “Royal Rampage 2023” (07.21.2023) (Wrestling Review)



Boston, Massachusetts

July 21st, 2023


AEW TNT Title #1 Contendership Royal Rampage Match
Jay Lethal (w/Sonjay Dutt) vs. Matt Hardy vs. Jeff Jarrett (w/Karen Jarrett & Satnam Singh) vs. Matt Sydal vs. Minoru Suzuki vs. Matt Menard vs. Angelo Parker vs. Jake Hager vs. The Blade vs. Brian Cage vs. Ethan Page vs. Big Bill vs. Swerve Strickland (w/Prince Nana) vs. Isiah Kassidy vs. Darby Allin vs. Komander (w/Alex Abrahantes) vs. The Butcher vs. Bishop Kaun vs. Nick Wayne vs. Toa Liona

The double ring battle royal is fine but even at 30 minutes, which is half the show, this felt both too long and too short. It just never felt eventful. It had its moments and Darby winning is fine but this just felt like a filler match. At least the finish though was unique.

1.5 / 5

Six Man Tag Team Match
Billy Gunn & The Acclaimed (Anthony Bowens & Max Caster) vs. QTV (Aaron Solo, Johnny TV & QT Marshall) (w/Harley Cameron)

This was a fine match. Good action and you knew who was going to win here. Just a bit goofy at times almost too much. 

2.5 / 5

AEW TBS Title Match
Kris Statlander (c) vs. Marina Shafir

Short and fine. Had some good mat wrestling but Statlander needs a feud badly as champ. 

2 / 5
