AEW Rampage Results: In-Depth Match Analysis
PAC vs Andrade El Idolo
PAC vs Andrade El Idolo is a match that had the professional wrestling world excited when it was announced. PAC, a wrestler who has put it all together since leaving WWE to become one of the best in the world, facing off with Andrade, a man who was awaiting his release from WWE to show that he can still be one of the best. For the latter part of this match, fans have felt that he has not come close as of yet to be as good as some remember from his La Sombra days or even from his time in NXT. Well, what was delivered on Rampage this Friday night was the best match Andrade has had since leaving WWE as he and PAC told a tremendous story of both just wanting to prove they are better.
Whether it was the dazzling athleticism of both men or the sheer intensity, this match was what everyone wanted. The closing of the match would see PAC lock on the Brutalizer to Andrade but would be put to an end when Chavo Guerrero rolled into the ring with the referee distracted. Guerrero would smash PAC on the back of the skull with his iPad, effectively putting him out cold and handing Andrade the match. Afterward, Andrade was angered by Guerrero for not allowing him to win the match himself. This would lead to an attack, signaling the end of their short-run together. All things considered, this was as good of a TV match as you will see. The crowd was into it from start to finish and the finish leaves the door open for another match down the line. One they could maybe top.
