AEW Announces 1st Match For Tag Tournament To Decide Inaugural Tag Team Champs

All Elite Wrestling has revealed its first match for it's Tag Team Tournament, with The Young Bucks now set to face off with Private Party, per Mandatory.

The new company previously announced plans to host a tourney to decide it's first tag champs following the TNT TV debut. And it's since been decided that The Young Bucks - who many expect to be the first to hold the belts - will fight Marq Quen and Isiah Kassidy.

The Bucks, regarded as the best tag team in the world, handpicked the previously unheard of Private Party, who seem to have left an impression on them. And they're now poised to go up against their recruits in what should be an exciting match.

Matt and Nick Jackson announced as much after going through their final indie match, having beat their upcoming opponents at House of Glory's High Intensity 8 event on Friday night.

After the win, Matt got on the mic and told fans that the match against Private Party wasn't to be the last as they will have a rematch in October. The bout will take place during AEW's second wrestling episode on October 9 and will be the first of the tournament.

Tony Khan's startup promotion will debut on television on October 2 but the new company could run into some difficulty as WWE is planning to have NXT air on Wednesdays when SmackDown moves to Fox this October.

According to reports, the deal could see NXT programming head to FS1 and air at the same time as AEW's show on TNT. So we could have a modern-day version of Monday Night Wars on our hands pretty soon, except that it will go down on Wednesday nights.

In any case, there will be plenty of wrestling to go around before the end of 2019. Just imagine: Raw, SmackDown, NXT and AEW all on television - what a time to be alive.
