AEW Rampage is finally set to debut this Friday (August 13), and AEW fans around the world are abuzz about the show’s arrival after Fite TV announced it would be carrying the show internationally.
Currently set for Rampage’s debut episode is an AEW Women’s World Championship match between Britt Baker and Red Velvet. AEW President Tony Khan appeared on Busted Open Radio to speak about the match, saying that he wanted more time to build up to it on Dynamite this week.
“I think it’s going to be a great match, it’s going to be a great environment, and on Rampage Friday, to have that big Women’s World Title match with Dr. Britt Baker against Red Velvet, and Britt Baker having this big hometown advantage in Pittsburgh? I think it’s going to be so much fun. And you’re going to hear from both of them tonight. I’m very excited about that. That’s one of the reasons why I wanted to make sure if I give Danny and his guys from UFC some time, I just want to make sure they’re not stepping on important stuff. And in this case, Dr. Britt Baker and Red Velvet, they’ve got to have some time to talk themselves ahead of this big match. So we’ll hear from them tonight.”
What is (arguably) more highly anticipated than the debut episode of Rampage, is the second show on August 20, being held in the United Center in Chicago. The rumours are running wild ahead of the big show, and Tony Khan said he believes fans know exactly what to expect from the show. Khan said:
“Furthermore, we’ll hear a little bit more about what’s coming on Rampage. It’s going to be a huge card, and tonight we’ll establish more of what’s coming on the premiere of Rampage. Of course, I think everyone knows what to expect on the second episode of Rampage, which is titled ‘The First Dance.’ And I expect the anticipation will continue to build.”
Of course, the person in question, you know who I mean, has said that he already has prior commitments that night.
