“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.”
It is clear that All Elite Tag Team Titles are on the way and tag team wrestling is back on cable TV. There are several tag teams already in AEW, and it looks like they will be adding more.
