AEW’s Tony Khan confirmed on the Stone Cold Podcast that upon AEW’s TV debut on TBS, they will hold a Tag Team tournament to help kickstart their exciting tag team division. With tag wrestling already being given the spotlight during Double or Nothing’s fantastic AAA Tag Title match between The Young Bucks and The Lucha Bros, AEW are looking to elevate tag wrestling to a whole new level, bringing new faces together and producing exciting duos action.
With a few teams already established, including; Angelico & Jack Evans, The Dark Order and SCU, it’s easy to see that their budding tag division is worthy of a massive tournament to help kickstart their movement. Khan has yet to reveal much information as to who exactly will be competing in the tournament, but he has let slip that they will be competing for the chance to become the first ever AEW Tag Team champions.
Tony Khan revealed the following to Steve Austin:
“We’re going to establish a great tag team division. When we launch our weekly television show in the fall, we’re going to be doing a tag team tournament that’s going to have some of the greatest tag team matches ever on TV. It’s going to be a main focus of our TV. There will be teams competing to get a first-round bye in that tournament, which is a big deal. We’ll have some of the best tag teams in wrestling competing for our Tag Team Championships coming up in the fall.”
So if we didn’t have enough recent to check out AEW’s televised episodes, Tony Khan has now given fans of tag wrestling a huge excuse to check out their weekly shows on TBS.
