One man is through.
Orange Cassidy defeated Powerhouse Hobbs on Friday's AEW Rampage to become the first man to advance in the AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament.
Hobbs dominated the majority of the match, but Cassidy was able to catch him in the mouse trap as Hobbs was arguing with the referee.
