All Elite Wrestling launched the official bracket for the AEW World Tag Team Championship Tournament on Tuesday by way of the most recent episode of the Road to TNT YouTube collection. The seven-team match will crown the younger firm’s first tag staff champs on the Oct. 30 episode of AEW on TNT on the Chaleston Coliseum in Charleston, Virginia. Three groups had already been introduced for the bracket, as The Dark Order gained a first-round bye by beating The Best Friends at All Out, whereas The Young Bucks declared their first-round match can be in opposition to the promising younger duo of Marq Quen and Isiah Kassidy on the Oct. 9 episode from the Agganis Arena in Boston.
As introduced by Tony Schiavone, the opposite two first-round matches may even happen on Oct. 9 — The Lucha Brothers vs. A Boy and His Dinosaur and The Best Friends vs. SCU. The two semifinal matches will happen on Oct. 23 in Pittsburgh.
Back in June AEW president Tony Khan appeared on The Steve Austin Show, the place he defined to Steve Austin that he wished there to be a powerful deal with tag staff wrestling for each the lads’s and ladies’s division in AEW.
“We’re super focused on it,” Khan stated. “One of the things we’re going to be focused on and something we’re going to do is establish a great tag team division.”
It’s value mentioning a few groups that did not make the reduce. Cody Rhodes & Dustin Rhodes reformed as The Brotherhood again at Fight for the Fallen to tackle The Bucks, Angelico & Jack Evans have been featured on quite a few pay-per-views and the brand new staff of Santana and Ortiz (generally known as LAX from their time in Impact Wrestling) debuted at All Out by taking out each the Bucks and the Lucha Brothers after their insane Escalera de la Muerte ladder match.
Thus far the one champion AEW has topped is its AEW World Champion. Chris Jericho defeated “Hangman” Adam Page to win the title within the Main Event of All Out again on Aug. 31 and already has his first two defenses lined up — vs. TBA on Oct. 16 in Philadelphia and vs. Rhodes on the Full Gear pay-per-view in Baltimore on Nov. 9.
AEW will premiere its weekly two-hour present on TNT beginning on Oct. 2. Thus far 4 matches have been introduced — Nyla Rose vs. Riho for the AEW Women’s World Championship, Rhodes vs. Sammy Guevara, MJF vs. Brandon Cutler and Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks vs. Jericho and two thriller companions.
