AEW has an 8-man tournament starting soon which will culminate at Full Gear on November 7th. The winner of that tournament will be the new #1 contender for the AEW World Title.
The company has announced all but two names so far, and they have one more week to make things official before the tournament kicks off.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter stated that AEW Dynamite’s October 21st episode will include four quarterfinal matches. They will then have two semifinal matches on October 28th’s episode. At that point, they will have a week and a half to promote the #1 contender’s match for Full Gear on November 11th.
A lot of fans are expecting to see Hangman Page vs Kenny Omega somewhere in that tournament, perhaps in the finals, but the bracketology has yet to be revealed. They still need to announce two more names for the tournament.
So far they have announced Kenny Omega, Colt Cabana, Hangman Page, Fenix, Jungle Boy, and Wardlow in the tournament. We expect those other names to come in the next week.
