As noted, it was announced on last night’s AEW Dynamite episode that an eight-team women’s tournament will take place this summer – The Deadly Draw.
The current plan is to do an annual summer tournament with the AEW women’s division, if this first tournament does well in the ratings, according to Wrestling Observer Radio.
While AEW wants to make a women’s tournament an annual thing, it comes down to how successful The Deadly Draw does in the ratings.
The first tag team to enter the tournament is The Nightmare Sisters – Allie and Brandi Rhodes, as seen in the graphic below.
There’s no official word yet on the other 14 competitors for the tournament, or what the winners will receive, but stay tuned as we will keep you updated.
