How the show went: “It was one of the biggest nights in the history of the company, and it was a great show. We came in with a terrific three-game championship card and a plan to deliver the best hour-long wrestling TV show we’ve seen in a very long time. We had to hit a home run, and we did. Everyone at all levels, including production and staff, did a wonderful job. “
To the purpose of last night’s show: “We showcased our people, and that led to some great moments. Tonight it was all about showing fans the best stars of AEW, the ones who are becoming traditional names in wrestling and even outside of it. Now’s a great time to start Rampage, and I wanted to go as hot as possible. Next week’s Rampage is “The First Dance” and I think everyone knows what to expect – and everyone is very excited. We’ve built a foundation here for what you’re going to see next week. It was a big first, and there is a lot of anticipation for next week in Chicago. “
On Fuego del Sol getting the contract offer after his loss to Miro: “It was a complete shoot. Fuego had no idea what was to come. Sammy was the only person I spoke to about it, and Fuego was rightfully surprised to receive the contract he was dreaming of and pursuing.
On next week’s The First Dance show: “This show belongs to wrestling fans. Now is the time for more AEW on TNT and TBS. There is only more excitement to come in the coming weeks. I’ve been looking forward to this day for so long, and it was a big start for Rampage. It’s a whole different format for us, and next week will be a very atypical episode of Rampage. I am so excited for what awaits us next week. We’re going to give people a very special wrestling television. The first dance is going to be a unique and historic wrestling televised event. “
