AEW announced on last night’s episode of Dynamite the full list of competitors and brackets for the upcoming 8-man tournament to crown the first ever TNT champion. Stars competing include Cody Rhodes, Darby Allin, Sammy Guevara, Shawn Spears, Colt Cabana, Lance Archer, Dustin Rhodes, and Kip Sabian.
The tournament will kick-off next week (April 8th) with Cody Rhodes taking on rival Shawn Spears. The last time these two met was at the August ALL OUT pay per view in Chicago.
It will continue the following week (April 15th) with Lance Archer taking on Colt Cabana. Cabana, who was on commentary during last night’s broadcast, says he’s been preparing for Archer as best as he can. This bout will be joined by Jon Moxley defending the AEW championship against The Inner Circle’s Jake Hager.
