After months of hype and buildup, the first episode of AEW Rampage is in the rearview mirror, and we couldn’t be any happier with the show so far. Not only was the card was stacked with three title matches but Tony Khan made room for two big surprises— first by offering Fuego Del Sol a contract and second, with the show-closing return of Jamie Hayter as Britt Baker’s sidekick. Oh, and let’s not forget Christian Cage defeating Kenny Omega for the Impact world title!
We have plenty to discuss this week as we take a closer look at AEW’s new show and explain why we think the one-hour format is perfect for an industry notorious for overly bloated television shows. Before all that, however, we do set aside time for Ricky’s rapid-fire questions. All this and more!
