The revolution was televised for Ricky Starks on AEW Rampage as he managed to hold onto his FTW Championship against Brian Cage in a Philadelphia Street Fight on AEW Rampage. In the pre-fight promos, Cage was sporting a Kanyon shirt as Starks was emphatic in his hatred for The Machine. Plunder was obviously a factor in play during the bout as Cage smacked Starks hard with a chair. In addition to that we had trash cans, their respective lids and a pool cue as a few other players. Starks nailed a leg drop with the trash can lid for a near fall.

Ricky had control of the better part of the match until Cage rocked him with a thrust kick. Cage then nails him with a trash can lid. He pump handle slams Starks for a near fall! Cage signals for the Drill Claw, but here comes Hook nd Powerhouse Hobbs. Cage wards both bad guys off until Starks hits a spear. Cage, however, kicks out and Starks throws a tantrum. Starks charges at Cage but Brian sidesteps causing Starks to collide with a chair in the corner. Starks hits a discus lariat and covers, but Hobbs has to make the save. Starks is bloody, but Hook low blows Cage and it sets Brian up for the Roshambeaux. He hits it and we get the 1-2-3.
