“March 30, 2020 – AEW announced its first-ever “TNT CHAMPIONSHIP,” a high-stakes, eight-man tournament which kicks off on Wednesday, April 8, on the weekly AEW: DYNAMITE show on TNT. The single-elimination tournament will feature the biggest names in AEW all vying for the inaugural TNT CHAMPIONSHIP belt.

Wrestlers in the first half of the tournament bracket will be revealed this Tuesday, March 31, on AEW’s YouTube show, AEW DARK. The second half of the bracket will be announced this Wednesday, April 1, during the live AEW: DYNAMITE show on TNT.

The TNT CHAMPIONSHIP will culminate with an epic final match at DOUBLE OR NOTHING, AEW’s highly anticipated PPV event on Saturday, May 23, in Las Vegas.

“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.”

The main goal of our events calendar is to get as many events as possible in one place to make it easier for fans. All events have ticket links, venue information, date and time. But some events have more, and some have a lot more and are basically event previews. It depends on the information available at the time we post the event and if we are able to update that event, etc. The other goal is keeping fans up to date on events in general, as best we can. We can’t possibly get EVERY event, but you’ll see we have more then most anyone else. Recently we’ve added Event Reminders for when certain shows will be airing. For example, if an event is taped, the reminder will be for when the event airs. We do our best to maintain around 200 upcoming pro wrestling events at all times. We started with US & Canadian professional wrestling promotions but have recently been adding more events from around the world. Including all different types of entertainment events. Some days have one to three events and some have over twenty on the same day, so you may have to click the link at the bottom to see more events on a certain day. Also we recently made it possible for anyone to comment on these event pages. If you’re a fan who went to or watched any of these events, feel free to leave a comment below. * AEW Announces TNT Championship Tournament DiscussPW News *
