On the new edition of Road to Dynamite by All Elite Wrestling on their YouTube Channel, Tony Schiavone revealed that a new title was coming to All Elite Wrestling – the TNT Championship – and that an eight-man tournament will start on April 8th to crown the first-ever AEW TNT Champion. The reveal begins around 2:50 of the video below.
According to a press release sent out by AEW, the first half of the bracket will be revealed on AEW DARK on Tuesday, March 31, with the remaining four revealed on Wednesday’s edition of AEW Dynamite. “It’s been a privilege working with Kevin Reilly and TNT to bring fans the best live wrestling show week after week on AEW: DYNAMITE, especially during these tumultuous times,” said Tony Khan, president and CEO of AEW. “I’m glad we’re now able to announce the TNT CHAMPIONSHIP. The first-ever titleholder will be determined by an unforgettable tournament that fans will not want to miss, and that our wrestlers will be desperate to win. I’m excited for the announcement of the full bracket live on Dynamite this week. And, it’s only fitting that the champion and the title belt will carry the logo of the globally-respected TNT brand, and that they’ll represent not only AEW but also the great quality programming, massive reach, and storied history in the wrestling business that are all associated with TNT.”
