AEW announces TBS Championship, title tournament


A new championship title is coming to AEW. 

AEW announced today that they are introducing a secondary women's title, The TBS Championship. The first champion will be crowned in a tournament, with the tournament finals being held on the first Dynamite on TBS on January 5, 2022. 

No further details as to the number of participants in the tournament were released, but referee Aubrey Edwards stated that the tournament will be held between now and January 5.

Edwards and Tony Schiavone revealed the new title on tonight's Dynamite. The announcement was teased as a major announcement from Tony Khan, but Schiavone made the announcement in Khan's place. 

A video package played later in the show with comments from Thunder Rosa, Ruby Soho, Jade Cargill and Skye Blue, all vowing to win the title. 

When the TNT Championship was introduced, it was decided in an eight-person tournament. The finals of the inaugural TNT Championship tournament took place at the Double or Nothing pay-per-view on May 23, 2020.
