Rating: ***1/2. This was a fantastic main event. FTR truly can adapt to any opponent style, and this was a perfect example of that. Vikingo and Komander got almost all of their stuff in, but the better team won this one and capitalized on one mistake.
After the match, all four men embrace.
Lights go out! House of Black is shown clapping on the big screen.
Final Thoughts: This was a mega-meh episode until the main event. Having no matches announced and nothing of meaning on the card made it feel like every other episode of Rampage, even though this was supposedly a live special. Red Velvet and Preston Vance are interesting choices for this week’s show, especially having both on there. The main event delivered in a big way and FTR are back on the winning track, which is good for the fans. 7/10.
