Rampage Grand Slam Announcements

As announced on the September 16 episode of AEW Rampage, Eddie Kingston challenged Sammy Guevara to a match at AEW Rampage Grand Slam. He said he doesn’t like him because he sees the former TNT Champion as rotten. Kingston said he doesn’t respect Guevara and will beat the “piss” out of him.

Kingston and Guevara were seemingly set to face off at AEW All Out. But Kingston was suspended from AEW after he got into a physical confrontation with Guevara backstage. So he wound up instead facing Tomohiro Ishii on the Zero Hour pre-show of the pay-per-view. Likewise, Guevara and Tay Melo defended the AAA World Mixed Tag Team Championship against Ortiz and Ruby Soho at AEW All Out: Zero Hour.

Several top stars will compete in the first-ever Golden Ticket Battle Royale. The contest winner will earn a shot at the AEW World Championship. In a backstage segment on the September 16 episode of the show, Hangman Page, the Dark Order, and RUSH were confirmed for the match. In addition, Penta Oscuro, Lance Archer, and Jay Lethal were also confirmed by an on-screen graphic.

On the show, Jade Cargill will defend the TBS Championship against Diamanté. Cargill noted that she has run through everyone, so there’s no one left for her to face. However, Diamanté interrupted her and challenged the champion to a match before she said she wouldn’t be coming alone.

Additionally, Ricky Starks will face Powerhouse Hobbs in a rematch from AEW All Out. Hobbs won the first round, so the former FTW Champion will aim to get revenge this time.

In another heated grudge match, Brody King and Buddy Matthews of the House of Black will face Darby Allin and Sting in a No Disqualification match. Sting, Allin, and Miro defeated the House of Black at AEW All Out, but on Rampage, King threw down the challenge for a rematch. He stated that while he cut the head off the snake, there was still plenty of venom in its fangs.

The end of the go-home edition of Rampage set up a buzzworthy tag team match. Samoa Joe retained the ROH World Television Championship against Josh Woods. However, when Woods and Tony Nese attacked Joe after the match, TNT Champion Wardlow made the save. The broadcast team then confirmed a tag team match between the duos for next week.

Finally, Rey Fenix will battle Jungle Boy in a singles match.

AEW Rampage Grand Slam will be a 2-hour special edition show.

Here is the current lineup for AEW Rampage Grand Slam:
