Preview: AEW Rampage (9/1/23) – Penultimate Stop Before All Out

An AEW Rampage match graphic.

It’s the start of September. You know what that means. While Green Day lead singer Billy Joe Armstrong may be waiting for the month to end to wake up, for everyone else, it means Labor Day, Labor Day weekend. And All Out. We’re fresh out of All In as well, so All Elite Wrestling finds itself with the very challenging task of following up a Pay-Per-View event to set up another one the week after. We’re back in AEW’s birthplace, the NOW Arena.

Who Challenges The Brochachos?

Scheduled for All Out, the main event  from All In team up again. Adam Cole and AEW World Champion MJF won the Ring Of Honor Tag Team Championship, defeating Aussie Open on the first match of the Zero Hour before the two met and faced off at the evening’s conclusion.

Despite The Kingdom and Roderick Strong confronting Adam Cole this week on Dynamite, none of the three are featured in the Battle Royal that will determine the challengers to Adam Cole and MJF at All Out. Instead, we have:

  • Aussie Open
  • The Hardys
  • Gates Of Agony
  • Action Andretti/Darius Martin
  • The Wingmen
  • The Righteous
  • The Outrunners
  • Best Friends
  • Dark Order

Meet Bryan Keith

AEW Rampage this week will both see Hangman Page’s first televised singles match since defeating Jon Moxley at AEW Revolution as well as the debut of Bryan Keith. A touted independent wrestler that has become a standout of Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. Hangman Page seems to not have anything to do since returning to The Elite in the midst of their feud with the Blackpool Combat Club.

Our Kind Of Lucha Match

This week is kind of missing a notable lucha match. Instead, we get a pretty neat tag team match as the AAA Megachampion Hijo del Vikingo teams up with Nick Wayne to face off against the team of Kip Sabian and the visiting Gringo Loco.

Hijo del Vikingo teaming up with the young, prodigal Nick Wayne makes for a very interesting tandem of young but extremely daring high-flyers. To take on the odd duo of the peculiar Kip Sabian and the high flying but unconventional independent wrestler Gringo Loco from Chicago itself.

All that and more, tonight on AEW Rampage.
