All Elite Wrestling is introducing its fourth main title named the TNT Championship in honor of their television home TNT.
To determine the new champion, an eight-man, single-elimination tournament will take place and matches will start on Wednesday, April 8 with the final match scheduled to take place so far at Double or Nothing in Las Vegas on Saturday, May 23. If that event takes place in Vegas remains to be seen.
Tonight on AEW Dark, the company will reveal half of the bracket while the rest of the bracket will be revealed tomorrow on 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,” AEW President Tony Khan said.
“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.”
