The AEW Women’s Tag Team Cup Tournament kicks off this Monday night on their YouTube channel. Some of the matches were taped this past week.
As noted last Wednesday night on Dynamite, the teams will be randomly paired so some enemies will be forced to team together.
During Chris Jericho’s “Saturday Night Special” on Facebook, Jericho said that Anna Jay will team with former WWE NXT star Taynara Conti against Andrew and Rose.
Jericho said he was surprised at the work put in by the women and he added that fans will enjoy the match. The tournament will include women that haven’t been seen “for a while” and women that haven’t been given the chance to shine.
Jericho said, “I was really surprised. There was a match, Nyla Rose and Arianne Andrew against Ty Conti and Ana Jay and I did not know what to expect for this because a lot of the girls don’t have experience.”
He continued, “Ty, I’m not sure how many matches she just had, I know she was with NXT. And Ariane, we haven’t seen Ariane in a few years now since she was one of the Funkadactyls. Anna Jay’s super green and even Nyla’s fairly green, so I didn’t know what to expect but I watched this match, and all four girls just kicked ass. It was really good, way bigger, way better than I expected. I’m not saying that in a mean way either, they really impressed me, all of them and hopefully we’ll get to see more of them.”
Jericho also revealed that Diamante and Ivelisse will be teaming in the tournament and he said that Brandi Rhodes and Allie did well.
