Rating: ***
Thoughts: Solid tag team opener between all these guys tonight. It was a fun start to RAMPAGE. Cassidy continues to amaze me as he has a Andy Kauffman meets Charlie Chapman vibe when wrestling. It’s really something as the fans continue to be entertained.

Tony Nese is interviewed by Tony Schiavone. Nese feels none of the other men who’s challenged Sammy Guverra so far have what it takes. He feels the men before him didn’t do good scouting as he’s confident he can beat Sammy. Sammy overheard him and gets into a heated exchange. Nese tells him to calm down and instead accept his challenge to face him for the TNT Championship next week. Sammy accepts but is soon attacked by Nese who leaves him laid out.

MATCH 2: BLACK FRIDAY DEAL-Britt Baker vs Riho

Sorry but this is a match hard for me to call. Seeing 90lbs of Riho versus Britt is how you say…Not really a match? Let’s try anyway! Riho gets in two dropkicks on Baker. Baker makes her exit as Riho goes to the top and delivers a flying cross body on Baker and Rebel to send them crashing to the canvas.

Riho gets in a double foot stomp but only gets a near fall. Get series of counters by both women as Baker tried to get in a Fisherman’s carry neckbreaker but Riho counters with a cradled pin attempt for the victory.

Winner: Riho (9:00)
Rating: **
Thoughts: I know I’ve seen Baker and Riho against each other before but it was pretty sloppy. This encounter was pretty smooth and both girls clicked here. Honestly their best match with one another to date. I love the idea of if anyone has had Britt Baker’s number in the past it’s Riho as in the future we will see them collide again. Remember the stipulation for this match was if Riho wins then she’ll get a shot a Baker’s championship.

MATCH 3: Eddie Kingston vs Daniel Garcia

Daniel Garcia getting owned off the break by Eddie who then rolls out of the ring to regroup. Garcia gets back inside and thinks he can go in with strikes on Kingston.

Kingston plants Garcia in the back of the head with a knee strike from the top rope.
Kingston pulls a Mike Tyson and bites on the ear of Garcia as the ref is warning him of a disqualification. During a Picture in Picture break, Garcia has been on offense as he’s planting his boot in Kingston’s face multiple times. Kingston’s knee is buckling out on him as he’s trying to fight through the pain. Garcia does a nice fireman carry followed by a roll through and applies a knee bar.

End of Show

Winner: Eddie Kingston (14:00)
Rating: ***
Thoughts: Solid storytelling by both men. 2point0 really didn’t do much in this match which was good as it was able to breathe. At times I felt as though I was watching a young Bryan Danielson facing Tommy Dreamer of today. Honestly they made something special here tonight and with Jericho now in the mix, it seems it’s going to get only better.
