Kenny Omega Reveals AEW Is Looking To Run More Tournaments In The Future

Akin to New Japan...

Throughout their time in New Japan Pro-Wrestling, members of The Elite participated in tournaments, whether it was New Japan Cup, G1 Climax, Best Of The Super Juniors, or World Tag League.

Kenny Omega evidently enjoyed taking part in the tournaments as he revealed in a recent interview with Comicbook.com that he and the other Executive Vice Presidents of All Elite Wrestling had discussed having another tournament in the future. He explained they weren't sure what it would be called or what format it would take, but each of them was "on board" with running another one.

The AEW World Tag Team Champion said: "Every one of those tournaments, they're rough on the body and it's tough to figure out a schedule to do so. Whether it be a round-robin tournament, a league style or one night, we are definitely looking into a tournament format because people, as a fan even, I love tournaments. As, a performer they're tough to do, but I think it really tests the athletes' mettle and it really separates the men from the boys. Yeah, I would love to do a tournament. I don't know what we'd call it. Don't have any ideas for a name, but all of us have been brought on board with a tournament. It's just a matter of figuring out how."
