The gold continues to grow. We are just over two months away from the debut of AEW on TNT with their weekly two hour television show. The television show is going to change things in the wrestling world for the better as there will now be several new things to watch in the wrestling world. Now though, the company has announced one major things for the first episode.
In a new interview with Sports Illustrated, Brandi Rhodes has announced that AEW will crown its first ever Women’s Champion on the October 2 debut episode on TNT. This is the third title announced for the promotion, following the World Title which will be decided at All Out and the Tag Team Titles, which will be crowned in a tournament starting in the fall. There is no word on how the title will be decided.
That’s something else for the show. Check out the trailer for the debut episode:
Opinion: That show is starting to get packed and I’m curious to see where things are going to go from here. The Women’s Title is certainly not a surprise as you could tell the company cares about its women’s division quite a bit. I’m not sure what they’re going to do to crown a champion, but a one off match instead of a tournament would not surprise me. This is one of the things they had to have and hopefully it works out well.
How do you see the title being decided? Who will be the first champion? Let us know in the comments below.
