AEW announced in November that they would be running a Clash of Champions style event titled “Battle Of The Belts.” It was announced that the event will be held on January 8th, the same week that AEW transitions its Dynamite show to TBS.
During a recent interview on Culture State, Tony Khan confirmed that the show will be 60 minutes in length.
“It’s a one hour show. It’s a one hour event, so I can’t put every belt on the line. It’s a great chance on a Saturday night to expand the reach of AEW by giving the fans great championship matches on a Saturday night, which is a night people love watching wrestling, especially for a big event. There is going to be big championship matches. I’m very excited about it.”
On Friday’s episode of Rampage, it was confirmed that AEW Women’s World Champion Britt Baker DMD would be defending her championship against Riho at Battle of The Belts. No other matches have been confirmed for the event.
