First Ever AEW World Title Defense Announced for 10/16 TV Taping in Philadelphia


All Elite Wrestling has officially announced that the very first defense of the AEW World Championship will take place on October 16 at the Liocouras Center in Philadelphia, PA. That will be the third episode of AEW television airing live on TNT.

Before we can get there, however, the inaugural champion must be decided. That distinction will either go to one of wrestling’s hottest up-and-coming blue chip prospects, Hangman Page, or it will go to one of its greatest all-time legends in Chris Jericho. The two will do battle in Chicago on August 30 at AEW All Out, with the title hanging in the balance.
