AEW star Shawn Spears issued a short statement on his social media commenting on the recently announced 8-man tournament to crown the first ever TNT champion. Spears declares he's officially ready to make history, as this new title is perfectly suited for him and manager Tully Blanchard.

Finally,A tournament with something on the line that suits Tully and I perfectly! No pun intended. I’ve waited 18 years. I finally bet on myself. I don’t deserve it, as this business owes no one anything....but I damn sure have earned it. Sign me up. Let’s make history.
