Tickets for weeks two and three of AEW TV will go on sale tomorrow at noon Eastern time. Week two is being held at the Agganis Arena in Boston, Massachusetts.

The inaugural AEW Women's Champion will be crowned on the promotion's TV premiere on October 2. The winner of the women's Casino Battle Royale on the All Out pre-show will become the first participant for that title match.

Week three of AEW TV will also include the promotion's first World Championship defense. Chris Jericho and Hangman Page are facing off at All Out on August 31 to determine the first champion.
