AEW President Tony Khan has confirmed that the Owen Hart Foundation tournaments will be returning in 2023.
During the November 17 pre-Full Gear media call, Khan noted that he’s very interested in maintaining his relationship with Martha Hart and the Owen Hart Foundation.
“I do plan to do the Owen Hart tournaments in 2023. I’d like to continue my great relationship with Dr. Martha Hart and her family.
“Oje Hart recently attended the Jaguars-Broncos game at Wembley Stadium. I really like Oje, he’s a tremendous guy, and Martha and the whole family, they’re great.
“We loved having them in AEW and the Owen Hart tournament tradition will continue.”
2022 marked the first year that AEW held tournaments to commemorate the legacy of Owen Hart, with both the men’s and women’s finals taking place at Double or Nothing in May.
Adam Cole was victorious in the men’s bracket, while Britt Baker won the women’s tournament.
During the media call, Khan confirmed a big change to the ongoing AEW World Title Eliminator tournament, confirming that the tournament finals will take place on the November 23 edition of Dynamite, rather at the Full Gear pay-per-view.
A semifinal bout is now scheduled for the Full Gear Zero Hour pre-show.
