Death Triangle will defeat Jurassic Express to win the inaugural Trio Tag Team Titles.

AEW has done a phenomenal job of building its tag team division.  This includes a lot of groups that include three members.  Adding trios tag titles makes all the sense in the world as it would give a second title for the many different teams of a very deep tag team division to chase.

Setting up a tournament to crown the inaugural trios champion would add some exciting matches to Dynamite for a number of weeks and the tournament final can be scheduled on a pay-per-view card.  Any number of talented trios from the Dark Order, Team Tazz, The Inner Circle, SCU, The Nightmare Family, Eddie Kingston with Butcher and Blade, Jurassic Express, Best Friends with Orange Cassidy, The Gunn Club, and Death Triangle could be featured in this tourney.

Any number of teams could win this tournament.  Jurassic Express might be the most cohesive team in AEW and Death Triangle is quite possibly the most talented.   This pairing seems like the most likely final.  While something tells me that Jurassic Park should win this tournament final the thought of Marko Stunt winning an AEW title before Pac or the Lucha Bros just isn’t something I can wrap my head around.  That said, Death Triangle will be the first AEW Trio Tag Team Champions.

Tessa Blanchard signs with AEW

Since being released in June from Impact Wrestling, days before her contract was set to expire, Tessa Blanchard has been the most talked-about female free agent out there, for a variety of reasons.

The AEW women’s division was widely looked upon as the weak link of the AEW chain in 2020, and it’s not the fault of the women on the roster.  With that being said, signing talent has to be the company’s number one goal to fix this in 2021.  While the signings of Serena Deeb, Tay Conti, Red Velvet, and Jade Cargill were great ways to build depth in the division none of them carried a wow factor that would instantly improve the division.  This is exactly what signing Tessa Blanchard would do.

Blanchard comes with baggage.  Many of her peers have called her out publicly about the way she has treated her co-workers in the past.  Not to mention that she was recently terminated from Impact Wrestling, the very promotion that AEW seem to be set up to work closely with in the future.

But at the end of the day, Tony Khan is a businessman and he knows that signing Tessa Blanchard will bring a lot of new eyes to AEW.  The fact that her father, Tully Blanchard is already working in the AEW will give Khan the confidence to take a chance on the talented, but volatile performer.

With the AEW women’s division in need of a shot of adrenaline Tony Khan will do what he can to ensure that Tessa Blanchard becomes All Elite in 2021.
