Full AEW Rampage Match Card: Athena In-Ring Debut

  • Lucha Brothers vs. The Young Bucks
  • Kiera Hogan vs. Athena
  • TNT Championship Match: Scorpio Sky (c) vs. Dante Martin

Battling a Baddie

The T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada became absolutely unglued when Athena came to the aid and stood side by side with Kris Statlander and Anna Jay. TBS Champion Jade Cargill and The Baddies were shocked at the sight of the debuting star, as it looks like another challenger has risen from the ashes, threatening to pry away the title from the undefeated champion.

On this week’s Dynamite, Athena addressed the crowd and gleefully proclaimed that she is officially #AllElite. However, before she could say anything more, Cargill, The Baddies, and more importantly the TBS Champion’s new publicist Stokely Hathaway would cut the party short. After a few choice words from Hathaway, fans can feel tensions rising between these six women.

This Friday night, we’ll get a preview of the impending war as Athena battles Kiera Hogan. Who will come out the other side victorious? Will Athena make her mark in her first match in All Elite Wrestling? Or will Kiera Hogan show everybody what a “baddie” really is?

Southern California Showdown

Riding the high after his win alongside Ethan Page and the debuting Paige VanZant at Double or Nothing, Scorpio Sky was primed and ready to get back to some TNT Championship-related business. Fortunately, or unfortunately for him, Dante Martin stepped up to the plate and demanded a shot at the TNT Title. Sky graciously accepted, under the condition they fight it out in Scorpio’s home of Southern California.

This leads us to this Friday night, Scorpio Sky battles it out with the high-flying and mighty impressive Dante Martin. Sky definitely has the home-field advantage. However, Martin possesses this unbreakable spirit, worthy of a champion. On Rampage, it’s TNT Champion Scorpio Sky versus Dante Martin! Who will walk away with the gold? Tune in this Friday night live on TNT!
