        Owen was never a world champion. Make it a juniors tournament.

          What if they leaned into smarkism and had the winners of WON MotY get title shots of their choice, and the winner of the Owen Cup gets to book themselves in a match at All In with the clear implication that the gameplan here should be to use it to put on an ******** BANGER dream match that could win MotY and guarantee a titleshot. Since that's just the implication you could have it be (mis)used by the winner to get a grudge match with someone who's been ducking them, or whatever.

            > lean into smarkism
            Smarkism is never the answer and it’s a proven anti draw over time. For nostalgia it’s fine but then it wears out it’s welcome quickly . Then you’re left with pretentious, obese, nerdy fans who are never happy with anything.

            Not his booking. His bookkeeping. The way he kept "losing" large quanities of cash and not paying people.

        Big money in kayfabe like they used to do with battle royals in the territory days. It was usually for 5-10K for winning one of those, so you can bump up a tournament to 250K or more now.

          I'm cool with $$$ being the prize. But Tony doesn't know how to turn THAT into a storyline. He has no follow up.

          Have some poor shitter like Kingston win the tourney and become an entitled rich prick. Or have Ruby Riott win it and she gets implants. There's storylines from the tourney, even those who lose. But Tony is not a good enough booker to capitalize.

      AEW ran tournament winner -> challenger with the women's eliminator tournament back in the pandemic, so it's an idea TK's had for a while. The most obvious inspiration would of course be the new japan cup, which has been running this stip (single elimination tournament for a title shot) since 2006.

      (Of course, there are countless other examples throughout wrestling history of a challenger being decided by tournament)

        Eh. I think that was more about giving stakes to the Saudi ppv than setting up SummerSlam. KOTR is beyond meaningless in 2024, so HHH had to make it look good for the Shiek.

      Sounds like you think it's justified?

      The Owen Hart Tournament used to mean something - it honored the late great Owen Hart. But now it only means a title shot. And AEW hands those out like candy.

        Well, either the International or the Continental title needs to be scrapped, so merging the International Title into the World Title isn't the worst idea.

          Something Slammyesque would be good, and you could run around clobbering people with it, but if it's just a statue they'd really need to hype it up as a 'true technical' tournament, or something.

    >"The Owen Hart Tournament getting world title shots at AEW's biggest ppv is the right idea! WWE does it so?"
    WRONG-O

    All that does is make both the OH Tourney and the future title match: Predictable. It's a creative crutch for a wrestling fed that is already criticized for having NO STORIES

    Now, Tony doesn't have to come up with creative booking, feuds, etc. for his big ppv. He just has to have another randomized tournament. That's your story!

    • 4 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      I agree with this take, strongly. Tournaments are your opportunity to give top stars losses because of "the grind", and competitive spirit, guys focusing on other feuds instead of their current tournament match-up, etc. But when a win = World Title shot, then fans suddenly stop rooting for guys like Daniel Garcia or Big Bill because they know it'll make a piss-poor predictable main event. But those guys are perfect for Tourney wins so they can build their resume for a FUTURE world title program.

      We'll see how it goes, I guess, hopefully both tournaments are still very well planned and executed.

        Ever since the Royal Rumble led to a Mania shot, I've hated it. Then they doubled down with a women's RR. Everything became so predictable.

        Back in my day, battle royals and tournaments led to brand new feuds, created new matches, due to the randomness of it all. I mean shit, Hulk Hogan vs The Ultimate Warrior happened because they came face to face at the Rumble and the arena exploded. But even shit like Bad News Brown backstabbing Bret Hart led to a new storyline. Friends and enemies change course. That's what these events SHOULD be about.
