All Elite Wrestling and the Owen Hart Foundation have entered a partnership, the company announced on social media Monday morning.
The two organizations are planning to present the wrestler’s legacy in many ways. Hart will be showcased in AEW’s upcoming video game, action figures, and additional merchandise. Both parties want to highlight his impact on the wrestling world through this new development.
“To extend his memory and his legacy even further through this agreement is a powerful and meaningful moment for the entire wrestling community,” AEW CEO, GM, and Head of Creative Tony Khan said of the partnership in a press release.
The biggest takeaway from this new partnership is the announcement of the Owen Hart Cup Tournament, which will be an annual event presented by AEW. The winner of this tournament will receive “The Owen,” which will be a trophy in honor of Owen Hart. Details regarding the format of the tournament or when it will take place are not available yet.
