Keep up the content. There is a lot of wrestling going today and thanks to modern technology, it is easy to see more of it than ever before. That can be a very good thing for fans, as they have never had this much content. It can also be exciting to hear that something new is coming, and now we know when that will be happening again in the new year.

According to Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men podcast, AEW is planning to run a special show on TNT on January 8. The show would be similar to WCW’s Clash of Champions, but since WWE owns the rights to the name, AEW may call the event Battle of the Belts, a named used for a series of NWA specials in the late 1980s. There is no word on what might be on the card.

The show does have a history. Check out what might be there and how the original show worked:

Jon Moxley's AEW Championship Run Comes to a Shocking End | AEW Dynamite Winter is Coming, 12/2/20

Who Walked Away with the AEW World Tag Team Championships? | AEW Dynamite, 8/18/21

Ric Flair vs Barry Windham - Battle Of The Belts II

Opinion: This is something that could work out very well for AEW as they know how to do special events. Above all else though, AEW has treated its titles as things that matter and it should be cool to see what they can do when the titles are the focus. I like the idea they’re going for here and hopefully the event winds up being a lot of fun, as it certainly has the potential to be.

What do you think of the idea? What do you want to see on the card? Let us know in the comments below.
