Starks vs. Archer AEW World title eliminator tournament match postponed

The match has been postponed to next week.

An AEW World title eliminator tournament match set to take place on Friday's AEW Rampage has been postponed to "next week" according to the company's Twitter account.

Ricky Starks was set to face Lance Archer, but a backstage attack that aired on Dynamite rendered Starks unable to compete.

Given that the tournament finals are set for next Saturday's Full Gear, it's assumed the match will happen on Wednesday's Dynamite with the tournament semifinals happening on Friday's Rampage.

Ethan Page advanced this past Wednesday with his win over Eddie Kingston. He awaits the winner of Bandido vs. Rush which takes place Friday.

On the other side of the bracket, Brian Cage will take on Dante Martin Friday. The winner will face the winner of Starks vs. Archer.

The winner of the tournament will get their World title shot at December's Winter is Coming edition of Dynamite, either against current champion Jon Moxley or no. 1 contender MJF as they do battle at Full Gear.
