Tony Khan reveals how they will crown their first tag team champions.
AEW President Tony Khan was a guest on the Steve Austin Show and stated that a tournament will be taking place to crown their first tag team champions. AEW from the get-go has made it a statement that they will focus on tag team wrestling more than most other companies. With a number of great tag teams in the company, this should be a really fun tournament.
Khan stated that the tournament will begin once they start in TNT in the fall with it being a main focus of their weekly shows.
“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.”
As far as which tag teams are in AEW right now there are seven tag teams on the roster and more can be announced down the line.
Angelico & Jack Evans
SCU (Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian & Scorpio Sky)
The Young Bucks
The Dark Order
If they wanted Cody & Dustin could be a team in the tournament depending on how many more matches Dustin is looking to work.
