Powerhouse Hobbs, Ricky Starks Confirmed For 2023 Owen Hart Cup Tournament

Ricky Starks vs. Jay White

The men’s field has its first two official entrants, with the second AEW Owen Hart Foundation competition slated to begin this month.

On Saturday’s episode of AEW Collision, former TNT Champion Powerhouse Hobbs and former FTW Champion Ricky Starks announced their participation in the tournament, which begins this month on AEW TV and continues at the Forbidden Door pay-per-view.

The tournament will conclude on Saturday, July 15th, in AEW’s Calgary, Alberta, Canada debut as part of a live edition of Collision. The exact start date is yet to be determined.

Hobbs and Starks did not compete in the men’s competition last year.

It has not been announced whether the tournament structure from last year, which included qualifying matches to narrow the field to eight participants, will be repeated.

Last year, there was one bye and seven qualifying matches. Cole defeated Samoa Joe and Britt Baker defeated Ruby Soho to win the men’s and women’s tournaments, respectively, at Double or Nothing.
