Royal Rampage Announced For 7/1 AEW Rampage, Winner Receives First Shot At AEW Interim World Title
A new match will debut on the July 1 edition of AEW Rampage.
On June 29, Tony Khan announced that Friday’s new episode of Rampage will feature the first Royal Rampage battle royale. 20 men will participate, with 10 men competing in separate rings due to the Blood & Guts setup. A new wrestler will enter each minute until there’s only one standing. The winner of the Royal Rampage will become the first challenger for Interim AEW World Champion Jon Moxley. Khan also confirmed Jim Ross will be on commentary for the bout.
The 20 men involved are Frankie Kazarian, John Silver, Orange Cassidy, RUSH, Hangman Page, Konosuke Takeshita, Penta El Zero M, Powerhouse Hobbs, Ricky Starks, Keith Lee, Swerve Strickland, Darby Allin, The Butcher, The Blade, Dustin Rhodes, Max Caster, Tony Nese, Matt Hardy, Dante Martin, and Brody King.
Elsewhere in the show, The Young Bucks, the reigning AEW World Champions, will face NJPW’s Hirooki Goto & YOSHI-HASHI. On the June 29 episode of AEW Dynamite, Matt and Nick Jackson noted that the duo wanted a title shot, and they’d have to earn one.
Plus, Toni Storm will look to bounce back from her loss to AEW Women’s World Champion Thunder Rosa when she faces Toni Storm.
