if you're going with Jungle Boy + Hook = Jungle Hook, why not just... JungleBook?

Some of the pacing on the women's match was a bit off but overall, just a real banger of a show.

…I’m just never going to like Kenny Omega, am I.

Just watched Rampage and wow. Orange Cassidy vs Juice Robinson to for the All Atlantic title: Good. Cassidy facing KUSHIDA next week?!? Great.

House of Black vs Eddie Kingston and Ortiz was only marred by a predictable conclusion of HoB winning and sowing more distrust between the two.

Tonight's main event: Tay Melo & Anna JayAS vs. Ruby Soho & Willow Nightingale with a street fight stipulation.

Hooo Lee Cats. This ruled so hard, and possibly reaches the Britt vs Rosa match for brutality. I don't think I've ever seen a woman wrestler bleed as hard as Ruby did (although that's because I don't watch GCW much). Ruby and Soho came out dressed as the Dudleys (sort of) and Willow basically carried the middle of the match.

Willow has been a perfect family-friendly babyface since her debut and on Rampage she managed to demonstrate (without ruining that) that she has range. It’s way too early in 2023 to call her my favorite wrestler of the year but I’m so, so excited to see her launching.

Big credit to all the women in that match but I’m really hoping this is the turning point where Ruby shakes off the IWC narrative that she’s been a disappointment because she earned some recognition here.

I have to admit that while I didn’t realize I wanted it until Jericho said something I’m a little bit sad we didn’t get a tiny snake.

The rest of the show was also quite good. Kingston and Ortiz vs House of Black hit very hard; Darby vs Juice was great. But when there’s a Darby Allen match on a show and it isn’t the one that goes the craziest you know you’ve got something special.
