Tony Khan Announces Return Of Owen Hart Cup, When Matches Will Happen

Tournament action is coming to All Elite Wrestling once again. 

AEW President Tony Khan announced on the most Wednesday night's episode of "Dynamite" that this year's Owen Hart Cup Tournament will take place between May 28 and July 15. The tournament, presented in conjunction with Hart's widow Dr. Martha Hart and the Owen Hart Foundation, will begin with "opening ceremonies" at the Double or Nothing pay-per-view in Las Vegas, Nevada. It will continue through July 15 in Hart's hometown of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. This year's tournament will also feature matches on the upcoming AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door II pay-per-view in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Khan was overjoyed to announce that the tournament matches will be taking place in Canada.

Last year's tournament concluded at Double or Nothing, with Dr. Britt Baker DMD winning the women's edition of the tournament, besting Ruby Soho, while the men's tournament was won by Adam Cole, who defeated Samoa Joe in the final.

Owen Hart was the youngest son of the legendary Hart family and passed away tragically after a stunt mishap during his entrance during a WWE pay-per-view on May 23, 1999. Dr. Martha Hart has been an outspoken opponent of WWE benefitting from the name of her late husband, as he died in a WWE ring, during an event that continued on after his tragic fall, resulting in a negligent death lawsuit that ended in a verdict in favor of Dr. Hart. This led to many years of Owen Hart's wrestling legacy going uncelebrated. That all changed with AEW's Owen Hart Cup.
