The round-robin portion of the Continental Classic Blue League is done and that means the finals are set for the last AEW Dynamite of 2023.
As a reminder of what the AEW Continental Classic tournament is about, here are the rules of the tournament from AEW’s website.
The Continental Classic is a round robin style tournament consisting of two leagues, Blue and Gold, with six competitors each. Each entrant will compete in 5 individual matches vying to become the top points earner in their league.
The Blue League and Gold League finals will take place on the December 27th episode of AEW Dynamite, and the tournament winner will be crowned at AEW Worlds End taking place December 30th LIVE on Pay-Per-View!
On the final AEW Collision episode of 2023, the six men in the Continental Classic Blue League bracket had their final matches.
In the first Blue League match on the show, Bryan Danielson and Claudio Castagnoli had an incredible 20-minute draw that gave both men one point. Castagnoli tried to finish off his Blackpool Combat Club ally off, but he wasn’t able to do it and it was a draw. Danielson finished with a 3-1-1 record for 10 points while Castagnoli went 2-2-1 for 7 points.
The second Blue League match saw Daniel Garcia beat Brody King. It was Garcia’s first win in the tournament since he finished with a 1-4 record for 3 points. King finished 2-3 for 6 points.
Eddie Kingston defeated Andrade El Idolo in the high stakes main event match. Eddie and Andrade both finished with 3-2 records for 9 points, but since Kingston beat Andrade in their head to head matchup, Kingston goes on to the Blue League Finals.
Who Will Meet In The Continental Classic Blue League Finals?
All of that means is that the Continental Classic Blue League final match will see the first place competitor Bryan Danielson face the second place wrestler Eddie Kingston on the December 27th edition of AEW Dynamite.
