Preview: AEW Rampage (11/10/23) – Live in the Oakland Arena

It’s a rare live edition of AEW Rampage as AEW makes a stop at the Oakland Arena—their return to the Bay area after this year’s Revolution Pay-Per-View event in March. The first time this venue hosted a Pay-Per-View was WCW SuperBrawl IX. Headlined by, of all things, Ric Flair challenging Hollywood Hogan for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship.

In 1999. Also on the card, Scott Hall won his first of two WCW United States titles on this night by ending Roddy Piper’s third reign with the title. Also on the card was an infamous moment as Rey Mysterio and Konnan teamed up to face The Outsiders. Kevin Nash and Scott Hall in his first match of the event.

The match wagered Miss Elizabeth’s hair against Rey Mysterio’s mask. And infamously, Mysterio lost his iconic mask. One of many luchadores, Eric Bischoff would have stripped of their iconic masks in throwaway matches and a moment, as well as a period of time so loathed by both Rey Mysterio and WWE, its footage is always omitted.

With that tidbit of history in mind, it’s time to preview tonight’s live edition of AEW Rampage.

Luchadores vs Old School

FTR prides themselves on being a great throwback to old-school, southern tag team pro wrestling. Akin to the days of the Midnight Express, Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard and others. But those that have followed Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler’s career together as far back as being Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder.

First ‘The Mechanics‘. Then ‘The Revival‘. Their best matches come from opponents that are absolutely anything other than old school. From the likes of their classics with American Alpha and DIY in NXT, to other classics with the likes of The Young Bucks, The Briscoes, and Aussie Open.

So it seems like we might just be in for a great time tonight given that FTR is set to face Komander, AAA’s Cruiserweight Champion. And the AAA Mega Champion, Hijo Del Vikingo. Two total high flyers. Can FTR live up to that legacy? Can the two AAA Champions gel well with one of the best tag teams out there? We will find out.

All that and more, tonight on AEW Rampage.
