Dutch Mantell gave his honest take on Brody King’s win on this week’s episode of AEW Rampage.
The House of Black member became the #1 contender for the Interim AEW World Championship. He’ll face Jon Moxley on the upcoming episode of Dynamite.
Speaking on the latest edition of Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Smack Talk, Mantell praised the finish to the Royal Rampage Match. He was a fan of the two-ring setup and even liked the finish involving King and Darby Allin:
“It was a nice setup and I think it was well produced. I liked the finish, when he [Brody King] had him [Darby Allin in a sleeper hold] and dropped him. He dropped him like a bad habit and I’ve never seen that finish before and that’s all he had to do.”
