Tony Khan Explains The Rules Around The AEW Continental Championship



In a recent interview with Comicbook Nation, AEW President Tony Khan explained the rules around the AEW Continental Championship and how the Continental Classic tournament factors in.

Kazuchika Okada defeated Eddie Kingston on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite to win the AEW Continental Title, though Kingston remains the ROH World Champion and NJPW Strong Openweight Champion. That led to some negative fan feedback as the inaugural AEW Continental Classic tournament billed the three titles combined as the Modern Day Triple Crown.

Khan said, “Whoever is the champion going into the Continental Classic, they will put the title up going into the Continental Classic. [The champion] will have the opportunity to retain it by winning the tournament. The Continental title will be defended under Continental Rules for the rest of the year. No outside interference, nobody allowed at ringside. Whoever is the champion coming out of Full Gear, they will defend the title in the Continental Classic, and at Worlds End, we’ll determine who will be the Continental Champion.”

Kingston will defend the ROH World Championship against Mark Briscoe at ROH Supercard of Honor 2024.
