AEW Rampage – Episode 55 (08.19.2022) (Wrestling Review)

AEW World Tag Team Title Match
Swerve In Our Glory (Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland) (c) vs. Private Party (Isiah Kassidy & Marq Quen)

A quick and mostly dominate tag match. Its weird to think that Private Party has mostly dropped off AEW. They got a little in against Swerve for a minute before being dominated. It was okay just nothing great. 

2 / 5

FTW Title Match
Hook (c) vs. Zack Clayton

Squash for Hook. 

.5 / 5

Singles Match
Serpentico vs. Buddy Matthews (w/Julia Hart)

A squash match for nothing where its so clear how underused Buddy is as a singles guy. 

.75 / 5

Singles Match
Athena vs. Penelope Ford

A six minute match where half the match was Picture in Picture or commercial is odd. Good to see Penelope back and she looked good in ring getting lots of offense. Athena winning was obvious as she’s undefeated. Her finisher looked great here too with Ford selling it well. 

2 / 5

AEW World Trios Title Tournament First Round Match
Best Friends (Chuck Taylor & Trent Beretta) & Orange Cassidy vs. Trustbusters (Ari Daivari, Parker Boudreaux & Slim J) (w/Sonny Kiss)

Loose rules as always here but the final team move by Best Friends was cool looking. Danhausen pop in is always fun too. Parker seems to be awful in ring here but I did like how they teamed up on him to get him out of the way. J Slim was the stand out star against them though. Decent match overall. 

2.5 / 5
