>A Man of His Word – Scorpio Sky Faces Frankie Kazarian

Scorpio Sky, after his grueling battle with former TNT Champion Sammy Guevara, honors his promise as he puts the TNT Championship on the line against former SCU tag team partner Frankie Kazarian on AEW Rampage. These two share a tremendous amount of history. Sky and Kazarian cemented their names in the record books as the first-ever AEW World Tag Team Champions, defeating The Lucha Brothers back in 2019.

Fittingly, they find themselves fighting for another championship, only this time, it’s one taking the title from the other. Despite their monumental respect for one another, Sky and Kazarian will have to set all that aside and pull out all the stops in the name of being TNT Champion. Something’s got to give this Friday night. Will Scorpio Sky retain the gold, or will Frankie Kazarian cut another Sky TNT title reign short?

>Battle of the Best – Riho Takes on Ruby Soho

The Owen Hart Foundation Women’s and Men’s Tournament began on the latest edition of AEW Dynamite, and they were phenomenal contests that set the tone splendidly well. This Friday night, Riho and Ruby Soho look to continue this trend, as they face one another in a quarterfinal matchup.

Last week on Rampage, Riho qualified for the tourney, defeating “The Magical Girl” Yuka Sakazaki in an extraordinary match that left fans wanting more. For Ruby Soho, she made quick work of a very talented but inexperienced Robyn Renegade to solidify her spot in the tournament.

Both women have a chip on their shoulders and a lot to prove. What better way to showcase their talents than by possibly winning the whole thing? Who will come out on top? Find out this Friday night, at a special start time, only on TNT!

I've been liking this slow full-fledged face turn for Sky especially after his interaction last week with Dan Lambert about the other TNT title. Him vs. Kazarian should be a good match.

Scorp has always been the best as a face. Especially in the ring dude is so much better when wrestling face.

TayJay got over big time from that street fight and all we got from it was both of them doing the job for Jade separately. Tay has surprised me as a heel so far, she's taken to it very well, but I feel like AEW could be doing more with Anna. She's clearly still kind of green but she's always on the cusp of being really over and passable enough to have good matches in the right circumstances; you can tell she's putting in a lot of effort when she's working. Her being gorgeous helps of course, but if that was the only thing needed for a push then Hayter would be champion.

Get the TNT title away from Scorpio and Sammy. Give it to Malaki Black or Andrade. The booking since Cody beat Sammy has been ATROCIOUS

Count me in as someone not digging the Scorpio heel re-turn.

SCU reuniting would've been perfect for the upcoming LA show / impending trios division.

The absolute best thing they could do would be to keep this bullshit going just a little bit longer,then bring back a Monster Face Miro who shuts all that shit down immediately. He was over as fuck during his heel run with the belt and if he's the one who kicks Sammy and ATT out of the title picture he'd get a heros welcome

Riho is so good at sprints that feel like they're for something important. Her pacing is excellent and she can pull off nearfalls relatively quick into a match that feel impactful, on either end of the pin. Nothing against Ruby but Riho is perfect for a tournament run like this and should've made Semis if not the Final to put somebody over there.

Woah, look at that, Frankie came to perform in this match, I was impressed. A bit of a backstep turning Scorp back but I get sticking with the guy who's had your back for the last year and just helped protect your throne. Maybe they just didn't want to rehash SCU again? Hopefully once we finally Remove Sammy, Scorp will continue to distance himself in the meantime and Page will go "hey man, since you're giving friends a shot how about give me a shot at the belt" and then Scorp solidifies the turn. Any time Miro's done fist fighting God in purgatory and he wants come save us, that would be great tho

>Trios Match

I thought it was a decent match. The heels got some offense in and the faces made their comeback and won it. No problems with this.

>Spears vs Boulder

I can't stand Spears and I can't take him seriously. It was just a squash though, so no big deal.

>Riho vs Ruby

Some stiff moves here. The break cut into a lot of this though and it's hard to say much more.

>Scorpio Sky vs Kazarian

This was well done minus one thing after. There was a nice story told with Sky wanting to defend against his friend against his teams wishes and not wanting them to help. Then they came to help anyway and he won the match from it. I would have had Sky get the win after the belt shot though. Afterwards, Sky figures out what happens. Page asks him which side is he on then he nails Kaz.

Lambert calls out Sammy after then Sammy comes in and chases them off. I didn't really like this part as both Lambert's crew and Sammy/Tay are heels and Sammy running off Lambert is a face thing.

Overall thoughts: I thought this was fine and I didn't have any real problems with it. The opener was fine and the main event told a good story. I doubt anyone saw it though and I expect the ratings for this to be lower than last week's ratings.

if Cena lifting Big Show was shopped what does that make this?

Also cuz there wasn't any good gif moments in the segment, I'm not a fan of infantilizing Gunn Club/Acclaimed -so much- like that, dial it back just a touch, but tbh it still made me pop and I dig Mr. Ass mentoring these guys so whatever

I think a Grand Slam implies 4 titles, not 3. Regardless, I don't think he'll ever get the World/TNT/Tag Triple Crown; I could see Kenny or Hangman getting it first by picking up a TNT run down the line.

Definitely, but I think the establishing of ROH as a brand is delaying setting up a Trios division. ROH also already has Trios titles but I'm not sure if they're going to be retired to focus on World/TV/Pure/Women's.

Wikipedia still lists the ROH trios titles as active but I'm not sure what they'll do with them since Vincent is working for Impact and Bateman and Dutch are teaming on the indies. Would probably make sense to either retire them or at least drop them to an AEW team or something.

The Righteous can drop the titles to Dark Order or something, but retiring the ROH Trios and doing an AEW Trios tournament is more likely I think. Blackpool vs Elite finals.
