Match Revealed For AEW Women’s Tag Team Cup Tournament
All Elite Wrestling will be beginning their Women’s Tag Team Cup Tournament this Monday on the Youtube.
The company released details last week, revealing the tournament will feature eight teams, all chosen in a random draw. 16 competitors will each draw a color, and matching colors will be paired.
As of last week, four competitors were advertised to compete, including Brandi Rhodes, Allie, Nyla Rose, and Ariane Andrew (Cameron in WWE).
More names were revealed Saturday evening during Chris Jericho’s “Saturday Night Special” live stream. He revealed Anna Jay, and former WWE NXT star Taynara Conti will be facing Nyla Rose and Ariane Andrew in the tournament. The match has already been taped, and Jericho gave praise to all women who participated.
“The women’s tag team tournament, I think you guys are really going to like it, we’re giving a lot of different people a chance.” Jericho stated. “I was really surprised, there was a match Nyla Rose and Ariana Andrews against Ty Conti and Anna Jay”.
“Ty, I’m not sure how many matches she just had, I know she was with NXT, and Ariane, we haven’t seen her in a few years now, Anna Jay’s super green, even Nyla’s fairly green, so I didn’t know what to expect. I watched this match, and all four girls just kicked ass! It was really good, it was way better than I expected. I’m not saying that in a mean way either, they really impressed me, all of them!”
