It’s now become a rare occurrence. Rampage this week returns to being a post-Dynamite pre-taped show as we continue AEW’s stay at the Agganis Arena in Boston, Massachusetts. The site of TNA’s Slammiversary XI where Chris Sabin would win the X Division Championship and soon use for Option C. Kurt Angle and AJ Styles had another of their phenomenal matches as AJ Styles was just introducing his now more recognized bearded and long-haired look. A then major step of character growth for him as he’d become disheveled after losing the privilege to challenge for the TNA World title for a year after a very bad 2011 for him. Bully Ray would defeat Sting in the main event for said World title. With that, let’s get on to the AEW Rampage card.

AEW Rampage Card for November 11, 2022

AEW World Title Eliminator Marches On
The 2022 edition of the World Title Eliminator is now in full swing. Originally, 3 matches in the tournament were announced. However, it would seem the Rick Starks vs Lance Archer is not happening. After The Murderhawk Monster attacked The Absolute One backstage on Dynamite this week. Excalibur’s usual match rundown did not include it.
As such, we seem to just have two other matches set for Rampage in the opening round of the tournament. One being Rush vs Bandido as the two former Ring Of Honor World Champions and Mexican stand-out stars clash again. The two have met many times before including the main event of ROH’s Best In The World 2021 PPV to win the aforementioned ROH World title. We’re in for some good old lucha libre action with this one.
The other opening match of the tournament is Brian Cage vs Dante Martin. Brian Cage seems to finally be catching a break with AEW again as he continues to have more consistent appearances and matches. Meanwhile his young prospect of an opponent seemed not too long ago to be blessed with the opportunity to shine. But he too seemed to get lost in the shuffle. Both men now are set to clash in the Eliminator Tournament.
Is That How Open Challenges Work?

Nyla Rose has her match with Jade Cargill set for Full Gear with the TBS Championship on the line. Jade Cargill finally gets a chance to get the title back after Nyla Rose stole it. Though, it seems that isn’t stopping The Native Beast from putting stolen property on the line in an open challenge. It’s been a long story, but the finish line is at least in sight now between the two for Full Gear.
It seems that while Wardlow is busy with Samoa Joe, The Embassy and Powerhouse Hobbs, Orange Cassidy has taken it upon himself to take on all comers and defend his All-Atlantic title as often as possible. Ironic coming from the guy whose gimmick literally being lazy. He now takes on Lee Johnson. The Nightmare Factory alumni makes his return to TV to take up the Freshly Squeezed open challenge. The second one on the show.
Finally, Jungle Boy looks to go face-to-face with Luchasaurus and Christian Cage. Likely to set up another match for Full Gear as this explosion of the Jurassic Express continues. All that and more, tonight on AEW Rampage.
