The Super Elite hit a four-way V-Trigger on Jungle Boy and pinned him!
CM Punk was in the ring to make an announcement!
“I come from humble beginnings. I moved to Philadelphia in 2003 and lived here a few years, I wrestled and ran a wrestling school. I loved Philadelphia so much because it gave me so much. Because of the money I made wrestling in Philadelphia, I was rich, but I wasn’t rich because of the money, I was spiritually rich. I’m glad I’m back and emersed in this community.
“Because Philadelphia will always be special to me, I wanted to give back to you. I’ll either wrestle for you or I’ll buy you all cheesesteaks. What’s it gonna be Philadelphia? You can go buy yourself a cheesesteak. I’m gonna wrestle. But before this renewed lovefest started, someone tried to end it before it even began. Daniel Garcia, if you’ve got any balls, you’ll meet me on RAMPAGE! Let’s go!”
Before leaving, CM Punk took off his Jordan’s and gave them to a young fan sitting ringside!
Arn Anderson was outside Cody Rhodes’ house and called Cody out! Arn started a fire in a firepit and told Cody to hand over his tie and his suit so he could burn it. He said that Cody had gone Hollywood.

“You threw us away!” said Arn Anderson.

RAMPAGE is coming to Miami and South Florida is the home of American Top Team. There’s only one king of the streets in the 3-1-5 and that’s Jorge Masvidal. Our town, our match, The Men of the Year and Junior Dos Santos with my bodyguard Jorge Masvidal ringside against you and your team Jericho!” said Lambert.
“We’re going to beat the living shit out of you, Lambert,” replied Jericho.
“We’ll see you in Miami!” said Lambert.

“The House of Black accepts,” said Malakai Black.
Up next, FTW World Champion “Absolute” Ricky Starks was in the ring. “I have the same damn mindset as Taz, and that’s why I’m the FTW Champ. But I can’t say the same about former champion Brian Cage. In typical Brian fashion, he didn’t show up to work. Trust me, I know, I really wanted to wrestle tonight and challenge him to a Philly Street Fight tonight,” said Starks.
Cage’s music hit and he ran to the ring! Cage splashed Starks in the turnbuckles!

Outside, Alex Marvez interviewed Darby Allin. Marvez asked Darby if he would accept his match next week against MJF on DYNAMITE. Darby said “Of course!”
A limousine pulled up in front of Darby. Masked hoodlums exited the limo and a five-on-one assault commenced on Darby!
“This is just an absolute sickening display. This is clearly the Pinnacle and their work here!” said Excalibur.
“It’s MJF but he’ll deny the hell out of it,” replied Jim Ross.
Lio Rush was backstage and said Dante Martin was a sleeping giant. “If you take that challenge from Malakai Black, maybe you need some guidance. Maybe I’ll have my people call you and we’ll talk soon,” said Rush.
