Put it on the list. Titles are some of the most valuable things in all of wrestling and it can be interesting to see what happens when a title changes hands. It can be a big deal when someone wins a title for the first time, but it can be an even bigger deal when someone wins an inaugural title. Now we could be seeing a combination of the two at one show coming next month.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: One of The Big Ones: Details On Huge Debut Over The Weekend At Ring Of Honor Tapings (SPOILERS)
AEW has announced the first Continental Classic, a two block, twelve entrant round robin tournament beginning next week and concluding at World’s End on December 30. This weekend at Full Gear, Ring Of Honor World Champion and New Japan Strong Openweight Champion Eddie Kingston announced that he would be entering the tournament and defending his titles. The winner of the tournament will win both titles, as well as the new Continental Title, with the three belts being described as the American Triple Crown Title. Only four of the twelve entrants have been announced thus far.
There is some talent involved. Check out some of the entrants so far:
Opinion: This is certainly a change of pace, as the winner will have a title from three different promotions. At the same time, there are already so many titles in AEW and having another one added in does not seem to be the most exciting concept. If nothing else, the tournament itself should be quite good, as the talent involved should make for some awesome matches.
