All Elite Wrestling have launched another singles title.

The All-Atlantic Championship was unveiled on last night’s edition of Dynamite, along with tournament brackets that folded in wrestlers from all around the world as well as two members of the New Japan Pro Wrestling Roster.

In matches set to take place over the coming weeks ahead of a winners four-way match at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door on June 26th, Canada’s Ethan Page will wrestle Bulgaria’s Miro and Mexico’s Penta Oscura will take on the Netherlands’ Malakai Black. Great Britain representative PAC was victorious over Australia’s Buddy Matthews to kick things off last night and continue the House Of Black/Death Triangle dispute represented elsewhere in the tournament. It’s unknown yet who NJPW will submit for inclusion.

The brackets having such international flavour (and the flags on the strap itself) suggest that the title could serve as something of a bridge between AEW and New Japan (or indeed any other promotion) going forward, though nothing of the sort was confirmed during the unveiling. “Old Glory” on the front plate also as good as confirms that American wrestlers won’t face exclusion from holding the gold going forward.
