AEW Announce Huge World Tag Team Title Eliminator Tournament

The Young Bucks / CM Punk

AEW have announced a huge World Tag Team Title eliminator tournament. Not only that, the winners of the tournament will meet The Young Bucks in a Cage Match at AEW All Out.

The announcement was made on the August 18th edition of Dynamite in the aftermath of the Young Bucks latest title defence. During a backstage segment, Tony Schiavone broke the news to The Elite that AEW President Tony Khan was fed up with their shenanigans, so was going to bring things to a head.

The tournament will include Private Party, Varsity Blonds, Lucha Bros and Jurassic Express.

Earlier in the show The Young Bucks retained their Tag Team Titles against Jurassic Express, but it was far from straightforward.

Even after the Buck’s finally gained control, Jurassic Express refused to be beaten with Jungle Boy kicking out of the Indytaker. Marko Stunt tried to rally the challengers but was attacked by Kenny Omega with a chair. This in turn brought out Christian Cage, who fought off the AEW World Champion. This left an opportunity for Jungle Boy, who hit a Brainbuster on Matt on the chair.

As the match rattled towards a conclusion, Nick rolled Matt out of a backslide before hitting the BTE Trigger for the win. After the match the two factions continued to brawl, with Omega hitting a One Winged Angel on Christian Cage in the middle of the ring.

It was also announced on Dynamite that Paul Wight will return to the ring at All Out.

On the most recent episode of the show, Wight came to the ring for an interview with Tony Schiavone. The announcer thanked Wight for his help the previous week, before the giant said that he’d got an announcement.

However, before Wight could finish he was interrupted by QT Marshall. The leader of The Factory attempted to poor cold water on the idea of Wight getting back in the ring by highlighting his recent injury issues. Marshall reeled off Wight’s recent hip surgeries, showing a photo of a huge scar on the former WWE Superstar’s hip on the big screen.

Far from embarrassing Wight, the former World Champion revealed that he had spoken to AEW President Tony Khan about returning to the ring. Wight then announced that he would be facing Marshall at All Out.
