It’s worth something. There are all kinds of prizes and accomplishments to be won in wrestling and some of them have some long histories. Those titles are some of the most important things in all of wrestling, but they have to start somewhere. Such accomplishments have to be done for the first time at some point and that will be the case again next year.
This week on AEW Rampage, an announcement was made for the first ever Owen Hart Cup Tournaments, which are set to begin in May. There will be a men’s and women’s edition of the tournament, with the finals of both taking place at Double Or Nothing. The tournaments were announced last year and are designed to honor the legacy of Hart, whose wife Martha will be on hand to award the cups to the winners. No entrants have been announced so far.
Hart had some classics. Check out some of his better matches in WWE:
Opinion: This is one of the cooler ideas that AEW has presented so far as Hart is a legend who doesn’t get all that much attention. If this is what makes Martha and the rest of the family happy enough to allow Owen to be honored, then that’s good enough. It’s nice to see something like this happen and hopefully the tournaments go well enough to warrant another edition.
What do you think of the idea? Who do you have winning? Let us know in the comments below.
