Several matches have been added to Saturday’s night episode of Collision including the semi-finals of the World Title Eliminator Tournament.

Following Friday’s taped episode of Rampage, the semi-finals are set.

Penta El Zero M defeated Jay Lethal while Samoa Joe used the Coquina Clutch to beat Jeff Hardy on Rampage and advance to meet on Saturday’s episode.
