During Wednesday night’s episode of AEW Dynamite, the company announced the first ever AEW World Women’s Championship Eliminator Tournament. This will be a 16-woman elimination tournament, with the winner becoming the new #1 contender for the AEW Women’s Championship. The competitors for the tournament have yet to be announced at this time.
The last tournament, which was for a shot at the AEW World Heavyweight Championship, was won by Kenny Omega. Omega would go on to defeat Jon Moxley in shocking (yet controversial fashion) to become the AEW World Champion.
