All Elite Wrestling is preparing for their TV launch in two weeks, and they have confirmed the name ‘Dynamite‘ for their show today. AEW Dynamite will begin airing on TNT on October 2, and will go head-to-head with WWE NXT.
The second week of AEW’s programming will see the first round of AEW Tag-Team Tournament, with the winners becoming the first-ever tag team champions in AEW. AEW released the brackets for the tournament yesterday, and a total of seven teams will partake in this tag-team tourney.
One of these teams, The Lucha Brothers, could possibly be knocked out in the very first round itself. According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Lucha Bros have a booking with a different company on the day the semi-final is supposed to be held.
This is a major hint that Pentagon and Fenix could bow out in the first round against the Jungle Express (Luchasaurus and Jungle Boy).
Lucha Brothers are arguably one of the best teams in the world currently, and a first-round loss for them would be a massive upset in the grand scheme of things. Their half of draw also features the Young Bucks, who defeated the Lucha Brothers at AEW All Out.
The tag-team division of AEW is in safe hands. The Executive VP of AEW, Cody Rhodes, recently spoke with IGN, and was asked about a possible third hour for the AEW show.
Cody did not brush away this thought and said that a third hour of content could be possible. He felt that it would be better to utilize the unused superstars in some fashion, and they could stream the third hour on B/R Live.
“It will probably be live for people to stream on B/R Live. We have a lot of resources and we want to make sure that people can plug into the wrestlers who we signed who they’re fans of. We’re going to try and keep everybody busy.
WWE earns a lot of money from the three-hour schedule on RAW instead of two, and AEW could look to do the same in the future.
