Cassidy vs. Hobbs, Baker vs. Jay added to AEW Rampage


The AEW World title eliminator tournament will kick off this Friday on Rampage as Orange Cassidy faces Powerhouse Hobbs in a first round match.

Cassidy enters the tournament with an unbeaten streak of nineteen singles matches while Hobbs is coming off a Rampage loss to CM Punk. Before that, he had seven straight wins. The two have clashed before as Cassidy won a 13-second match on AEW Dark in July 2020.

Friday's show will also see Women's Champion Britt Baker in non-title action against Anna Jay. This was made after a backstage segment on Saturday's Dynamite following a verbal turned physical altercation between the two when Baker was making jokes about the Super Kliq defeating the Dark Order.

Those two matches join the previously announced rematch between PAC and Andrade El Idolo. The two first crossed paths with Andrade picking up the win on the post-All Out Rampage as their match from the pay-per-view had to be moved due to storyline travel issues.

All matches are being taped following Saturday's Dynamite in Miami, Florida.
