One thing that helps AEW stand apart from WWE, is that pretty much everyone has allies. If you’re getting beat down, you probably have someone to come save you. Orange Cassidy has Best Friends, Kenny Omega has The Young Bucks, Cody Rhodes has the 89 members of the Nightmare Family, and even & Darby Allin are allies. If you don’t have friends, you’re probably someone like Lance Archer, who can just throw you through the roof.
This has allowed AEW to quietly build up a very strong trios division, arguably stronger than that of companies like Ring Of Honor & New Japan Pro Wrestling which actually have a championship for trios to challenge for. Should AEW change that in 2021?
AEW Has A Ton Of Viable Trios To Use
When it comes to having enough teams to warrant making a new belt to launch this division properly. We have The OG Elite, Death Triangle, Jurassic Express, Gunn Club, Team Taz, SCU, Eddie Kingston’s Family, Best Friends and Hardy Party. Add in larger factions like Nightmare Family, Inner Circle and Dark Order having multiple possible setups in a trios environment.
This is a division which is absolutely stacked with talent, and many of these teams could shift between the traditional tag team division and the hypothetical trios division.
The Next Tournament In AEW?
It feels like AEW does a tournament every few months, and this could be another chance for them to do so. First we had the AEW Tag Team Championship tournament, won by SCU. Next came the TNT Championship tournament, and that was won by Cody Rhodes. Then came the Deadly Draw Tournament, a women’s tag tournament won by Diamante & Iveliesse. The latest tournament was the AEW World Championship Eliminator Tournament, which was just won by Kenny Omega.
This puts AEW at about three tournaments per year of AEW Dynamite, with the first for this year having some can go. There is also a light pricident for one singles focused tournament, and then two tag team focused tournaments. That matches up perfectly with a trios tournament, to crown some new champions in AEW
