World Title Eliminator Tournament Semifinals: Bryan Danielson vs. Eddie Kingston

Lots of sparring occurred in the early going. Both men were displaying their MMA/kickboxing offense. They head for landing kicks but don’t commit to driving them in fully. Then, they turn to striking. Kingston starts lightening up Danielson’s chest with multiple hard-hitting chops. Danielson’s chest turns beet red.

Their fight spills to the outside. Kingston sends Danielson up and over with a Saito suplex that almost gave him the count-out victory. Luckily, by the skin of his teeth, Danielson retreats into the ring before the 10th count.

Kingston keeps his ferocious offense on point as he mounts himself on the top rope with Danielson hanging in the corner. Danielson reverses their tangle with an avalanche belly-to-back suplex! Danielson charges in with his stiff kick sequence. Kingston starts to slump over, opening a Fujiwara armbar attempt from Danielson. Kingston fights through. Danielson hits a roaring elbow. Kingston follows it with a nasty backfist.

Danielson retreats to his submission offense by ensnaring a triangle choke. Kingston gives Danielson the one-finger salute before he starts to fade. The referee reveals Kingston is out, giving this semifinal victory to Danielson. The American Dragon has slain The Mad King, pitting him up against either Jon Moxley or Orange Cassidy at Full Gear next month!

Winner: Bryan Danielson

Post-Match: Bryan Danielson offers a handshake to Eddie Kingston. Kingston rejects the sentiment.

CM Punk Segment:

CM Punk is standing by with Tony Schiavone. They’re talking about Punk’s belated birthday (on the 26th) and Halloween, when out of nowhere, Eddie Kingston barges in and repeatedly says, “I own you.” Not happy with what just happened, Punk and Kingston start getting into it, verbally, causing Ruby Soho and a couple of guys from the back to come out and separate the two of them.

Matt Sydal vs. Dante Martin (w/Lio Rush) III

Sydal and Martin’s chemistry throughout this match is out of this world. Sydal kicks things off with a nice side headlock takedown. He retains control with a tight wristlock. Martin fires up a well-executed missile dropkick from the top. Martin hits his famous moonsault to the outside, then follows it with a flipping stunner. Martin takes this whole thing home after hitting his double jump moonsault to a standing Sydal. It’s important to note that Lio Rush never interfered in this match, giving Martin a clean victory.

Winner: Dante Martin

Next Friday on Rampage:

* TBS Women’s Championship Tournament Opening-Round Match: The Bunny vs. Red Velvet

* Adam Cole vs. John Silver

And now, the main event. If Abadon wins this match, she’ll earn a future AEW Women’s World Championship match!

Trick or Treat No DQ Match: AEW Women’s Champion Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D. (w/Rebel & Jamie Hayter) vs. Abadon

The lights go down, setting the mood for this bout. Britt Baker gets things started with a brutal neckbreker off the apron and onto a table, but the table doesn’t snap. She sends Abadon onto the same table with a suplex, but again, it doesn’t break. Abadon gets this party started when she brings out the thumbtacks. After some back and forth blows, Abadon sends Baker crashing right on top of the thumbtacks with a uranage!

Once she musters up enough strength, Baker tosses a chair straight toward Abadon’s head. Next, she puts her head in the chair and lands a discomforting stomp. Baker takes some thumbtacks and puts them in Abadon’s mouth before hitting a superkick. She looks for her Lockjaw finisher, but Abadon hinders her from locking it in by biting down on her fingers.

Abadon is starting to pick up momentum when all of a sudden, Rebel and Jamie Hayter jump up on the apron and cause a distraction. Baker stacks up the Living Dead Girl to win this entire thing, crushing Abadon’s chances at a future title shot.

Winner: Dr. Britt Baker

That concludes this week’s episode of Rampage. Have a spooktacular Halloweekend!
