AEW Rampage – Episode 75 “New Year’s Smash” (12.30.2022) (Wrestling Review)



Broomfield, Colorado

Dec. 30th, 2022


AEW All-Atlantic Title Match
Orange Cassidy (w/Danhausen) (c) vs. Trent Barreta (w/Chuck Taylor)

This had a good story with it with both Orange and Trent not wanting to fight each other but both wanting to win. Not super hyped with this leading into more Orange vs Kip stuff however. This was a good match as expected since both guys can go when needed. 

3 / 5

Singles Match
Kip Sabian (w/Penelope Ford) vs. Atiba

Squash for boring Kip.

.5 / 5

AEW TBS Title Match
Jade Cargill (w/Leila Grey & Red Velvet) (c) vs. Kiera Hogan

Another bland match in Jades run. Hogan looked good here and got some in but it wasn’t even in the realm of possibility that Jade was losing to her. 

2.5 / 5

Singles Match
Swerve Strickland (w/Parker Boudreaux & Trench) vs. Wheeler Yuta

Good back and forth here where anyone had change to win. Strickland solo is good even if his backing guys are horrendous so it’ll be interesting to see where he goes from here. 

3.5 / 5
