AEW President, Tony Khan recently appeared on the Steve Austin Show where he made a major announcement about the future of AEW’s tag team division.
Whilst the Young Bucks have already confirmed that the tag team division will play an important role in AEW, Tony Khan has now added to that. The AEW President revealed some major plans for when the company launches on TNT, stating:
“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.”
