Red Velvet vs Kris Statlander. A hard-fought match, won by Kris Statlander with the licensed Friday Night Fever. At the end of the match, there is a fight that also involves Jade Cargill, Anna Jay and Athena. ROH Tag Team Champions FTR — Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler, & Trent Beretta vs.
Will Ospreay & Aussie Open — Kyle Fletcher & Mark Davis (with Aaron Henare) After appearing on Wednesday night's episode of Dynamite, this is Will Osprey's official debut in the AEW ring. Serena Deeb and Miranda Gordy started the match for their teams.
It was a masterclass from the former WWE Superstar in the initial stages of the bout. Then both Mercedes Martinez and Tootie Lynn tagged in. Mercedes Martinez tagged herself in.
Mercedes Martinez is brilliant
She hit a spinebuster on Gordy and slammed Lynn onto her tag team partner.
In the end, the ROH Women's World Champion hit a sliding forearm on the back of Lynn's neck. Mercedes Martinez applied the Serenity Lock on Lynn, and Deeb simultaneously applied the Border City Stretch to get the victory.
As expected, the main event is full of stunts and overturns in front. Surprisingly, the victory goes to the face team thanks to a pinfall by Trent against Fletcher with the Strong Zero. We'll see if there is a rematch at the Forbidden Door.
The episode of Rampage, therefore, closes with the celebrations of Beretta and the FTR, while the commentators recap the great matches scheduled for Dynamite, next Wednesday: a Ladder Match 3 valid for the AEW couple titles, Chris Jericho vs Ortiz in a Hair vs Hair and tournament progress for the All-Atlantic Championship with a match between Miro and Ethan Page!
A dozen wrestlers were released last week during SmackDown, which included “The Latina Sensation” Mercedes Martinez from NXT. She has finally broken her silence on the matter after initially keeping a low profile.
She took to Twitter to express her gratitude to the company and Triple H for giving her the opportunity. Martinez bid farewell to the WWE universe but promised that she isn’t done yet. Mercedes now has her sights set on the next chapter of her life.
She has been through the wringer in WWE and has reaped the rewards of her hard work over the years as well. Part of the journey is the end, and Mercedes’s time in WWE has unfortunately ended. Some fans theorize that WWE is spoon-feeding their rival company, AEW, with good and talented wrestlers. AEW has already capitalized on released superstars such as Mark Henry, Miro, and Malakai Black, just to name a few.
