Hot off the presses, AEW revealed the full field for the Continental Classic tournament. The news was delivered by Tony Khan and Tony Schiavone during the Selection Special.
The Continental Classic tournament format is round robin with two leagues. The winners of each league advance to the finale. In addition to the Continental Classic Championship, Eddie Kingston decided to up the stakes to include the ROH World Championship and the NJPW Strong Openweight Championship. That means the tournament winner becomes a triple crown champion.
