All Elite Wrestling is yet to unveil the official design for the newly introduced title, however, it has been confirmed that a weekly 8-man Tournament will be contested to crown the inaugural TNT Champion.
As noted, the 8-Man Tournament will kick-start from the 8th of April and so far, no competitors have been confirmed for the tournament. However, it is likely that the likes of Jimmy Havoc, Joey Janela, Shawn Spears, and Kip Sabian, among other notable names, will be favorites to take part in this tournament and will certainly be favorites to eventually walk out as the inaugural TNT Champion, as well.
