Gangrel makes surprise appearance on AEW Rampage

The Attitude Era WWF star made his second AEW appearance during Friday's episode.

WWF Attitude Era star Gangrel made a surprise appearance during this week's AEW Rampage. 

Gangrel accompanied The Young Bucks to the ring for a match against Taylor Rust and Jon Cruz on Rampage, as Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson cosplayed as Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy, with Brandon Cutler dressing himself as Lita. Gangrel was aligned with The Hardys as The New Brood for a time during his 1998-2001 WWF run.

The Bucks turned on Gangrel on Rampage following their match, with The Hardys making the save. The Hardys then hit Cutler with their finishing maneuver. The Hardys face The Young Bucks at Sunday's Double or Nothing pay-per-view. 

Gangrel had made one previous appearance for AEW, taking part in Matt Hardy's Elite Deletion match against Sammy Guevara at the November 2020 Full Gear pay-per-view, a cinematic match filmed at Hardy's North Carolina home. Hardy would defeat Guevara in that contest.
