Lance Archer appeared on AEW Dynamite this week and attacked Ricky Starks who was supposed to be interviewed backstage. Both men were expected to face each in the opening round of the World Title Eliminator tournament this week on Rampage..
However, AEW has now confirmed that due to the attack by Lance Archer, Ricky Starks is not medically cleared to compete. Hence, their match has been moved to next week.
“After @LanceHoyt’s attack at #AEWDynamite, @starkmanjones has not been cleared by medical to compete in TONIGHT’s #AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament, and his match has been postponed until next week. #AEWRampage airs TONIGHT at 10pm ET / 9pm CT on @tntdrama“
Despite being booked as a dangerous heel, Lance Archer wasn’t able to win gold in AEW since his debut with the company. We will have to wait and see if this tournament could finally be his chance to win his first title in AEW. Despite this match being postponed, AEW Rampage boasts an impressive card which is as follows:
Brian Cage vs. Dante Martin
Orange Cassidy(c) vs. Lee Johnson
Bandido vs. Rush
Jungle Boy, Christian Cage, & Luchasaurus face-to-face
