AEW will be premiering on TNT this Fall, but that can’t come soon enough for some fans. This is especially true for fans of tag team wrestling.
Tony Khan, President of AEW recently revealed on the Steve Austin Show that when AEW debuts on TNT they will have a huge focus on tag team wrestling. This will not only be the main focus of their television show, but they will also be holding a tournament.
“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.”
All Elite Tag Team Titles are on the way and it appears that much of AEW’s television show will feature that tournament to crowd their first champions. There are several tag teams already in AEW, but there could be room for more.
