Are The Finals For The AEW World Championship Eliminator Tournament Too Obvious?
November 7th at Full Gear, we will see the finals of what is being called the AEW World Championship Eliminator tournament. It’s a single elimination tournament, with the entire first round having taken place this past week on AEW Dynamite. From the moments brackets were released, everyone thought they knew what the finals would be.
On one side, we had Hangman Page, and Kenny Omega on the other. At All Out, they lost the AEW Tag Team Championships, ending their fantastic partnership in the process. Since then, they’ve been on a collision course. It makes sense for them to meet in the finals, right?
Hangman Page Has To Topple Wardlow
The more likely of the two to not make it to the finals is Hangman Page. He’s been working his way back into singles, and had a fine match with Colt Cabana this past week to advance to the semi-finals. His singles wins have been hard fought battles, where he relies heavily on the Buckshot Lariat to finish the job. This might not be enough to deal with someone like Wardlow.
Wardlow absolutely mauled Jungle Boy, despite his opponents best efforts. Only one man has beaten Wardlow in singles action in AEW, that being Cody Rhodes in Wardlow’s debut, and he won by hitting a moonsault off a steel cage. Wardlow is perhaps AEW’s most deadly monster, and with winning the AEW Championship potentially getting him away from MJF? He’s not gonna let some anxious millennial cowboy get in his way.
Kenny Omega Might Buy Into His Own Hype
While Hangman Page fought hard for his first win in this tournament, Kenny Omega put away Sonny Kiss in 26 seconds. His new drawn out entrance was longer than the match, with him really working to hype himself back up as ‘The Best Bout Machine’. This was fine with an undercarder like Sonny Kiss, but next he has Penta El Zero M.
It took everything Omega had to beat him last time, them having a 17 minute war. This was when Omega was IWGP Heavyweight Champion, arguably the best Kenny Omega we’ve ever seen. Now, we have him still trying to figure out who he is, while Penta El Zero M has been given a second life in this tournament after Fenix got injured. He’s going to be an absolute killer, and Omega better remain focused.
