AEW’s Owen Hart Foundation Men’s & Women’s Tournaments will kick off during the May 11 edition of AEW Dynamite on TBS.
AEW announced today that they will return to the UBS Arena in Long Island, NY on May 11 for a live Dynamite and a taping for Rampage that week. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am ET. It was noted that this taping will see the opening round matches in the Owen Hart Foundation Tournaments.
As we’ve noted, the tournament finals will take place at the 2022 AEW Double Or Nothing pay-per-view, which is expected for late May. Dr. Martha Hart will be live at Double Or Nothing to present the winners with their trophy, which is being called “The Owen” cup.
AEW and The Owen Hart Foundation announced a new working relationship back in September, to honor the legacy of the late wrestler. You can read the original announcement at this link. A part of the deal includes the annual tournaments in AEW, in addition to various merchandise and other projects.
There’s no word yet on tournament participants, but AEW is expected to make additional tournament announcements in the coming months.
Stay tuned for more. You can see AEW’s announcement on the Long Island taping below, along with the Owen tribute video that aired back in December:
