Here is what Tony Khan said about tonight's AEW Rampage and the Owen Hart Cup:
“I’m excited tonight (on Rampage) to announce the when and the where on the Owen Hart Cup, but for the first time I’ll say it, there will be singles tournaments. There will be two tournaments. There’s going to be a men’s Owen Hart Cup winner and a women’s Owen Hart Cup winner. I talked to Martha Hart. She hasn’t followed wrestling that closely, but from afar, she knows that there has been so many great women stars have emerged in the last 20+ years, and really now it’s such a huge part of the world of wrestling. There is so much more great women’s wrestling than there was 20+ years ago when Owen Hart was an active competitor. I told Martha that I think it would be really great for the fans and it would be something tremendous if we had two cups, a men’s winner and a women’s winner, and Martha thought that was tremendous. So we’re going to be having two singles tournaments. I don’t want to say when and where it’s all going to take place. We are going to talk more about more tonight on AEW Rampage. We’re going to get a lot deeper into this also next week on the Holiday Bash episode of Dynamite. We have a really great video of Mark’s (Henry) comments he recorded for that Owen Hart video that are so powerful and strong. We have this really powerful video that includes footage of Owen Hart himself that we were able to get from our friend, at New Japan. Rocky Romero was actually on Rampage tonight. With Rocky in the building, it’s given me an opportunity to talk to him. Not only is he going to be wrestling on this great card on Rampage tonight, but also he has really been helpful to me in getting this footage of Owen Hart. We’re going to show it to the fans on Wednesday to tell them a bit more about the Owen Hart Cup, the Owen Hart Foundation, and what we hope to accomplish with these tournaments, including really bringing the legacy of Owen Hart to so many new fans and sharing the love he had for wrestling with so many people.”
