Let’s Talk Wrestling : AEW Rampage Episode 5 – 09.10.2021 (Review)



Cincinatti, Ohio




PAC vs. Andrade El Idolo (w/Chavo Guerrero Jr.)
Fantastic opening match. Both Pac and Andrade had some insane high flying moves here and came off great. It kept a good fast pace going and gave Andrade a good chance to shine with his move set and things he can do, which is something he hasn’t quite yet had the chance to do in AEW. The finish was somewhat lame, as run in finishes usually are, but it did move a story line forward that I have no clue will lead to what. 4 / 5
Dr. Britt Baker DMD, Jamie Hayter & Rebel vs. Kris Statlander, Riho & Ruby Soho
A quick tag match. First half is rather slow and picks up towards the end. Rebel is just used as usual here to be the one to take a beat down so it doesn’t mean much, however Ruby did get to come in and shine some since she’s new and super over with the fans. 2.5 / 5
Max Caster (w/Anthony Bowens) vs. Brian Pillman Jr.
A good simple story to close out the show here. Pillman with family in the front row and as the hometown hero here against heel Caster. Caster took control most of the match until the end giving Pillman his time to shine. Pillman is just fantastic and with some training and time is easily a main eventer for AEW I hope. Nothing too fancy here but a quick fun match to end it. 3 / 5
