What a difference a few vanilla midget signings can make, eh?
In the week that followed a landscape shifting ALL OUT PPV, not only have Tony Khan and his crew recorded a cheeky 1,309,000 viewers on average tuning in to the following week's Dynamite, but The Land of All Elite was said to have also drawn well over 200,000 PPV buys for the aforementioned blockbuster Sunday show.

Rampage also delivered us both a match that had been promised and frustratingly put off in PAC vs. Andrade El Idolo, and an apparent return to form for the latter.

You wouldn't bet against it. Until then, however, here's a shot of the TNT Champion squaring up to Johnny Cage on Instagram...
