Cody Rhodes confirms new championship for AEW in the near future

AEW VP and #1 contender to Chris Jericho’s AEW World Championship, Cody Rhodes, sat down for a media call today. He went over the new AEW Top 5 Rankings which would debut today, Kevin Dunn, and what his father would think about AEW.

When asked whether or not All Elite Wrestling would get a mid-card title in the future, Rhodes teased something big in the near future.¬†While there will more than likely be another title coming in the next month or so, he had a problem with the term “mid-card.” According to Rhodes, all titles should be equally important, and that’s how it is in AEW. You can check out the full quote below from¬†Sportskeeda‘s Rick Ucchino.

“I get frustrated when I hear the term mid-card. I know that it exists. I do, and I’m someone who toiled in the mid-card myself… but as a talent, you never consider anything you’re doing mid-card. I didn’t consider my run with the Intercontinental Championship mid-card. I wanted it to be the best thing. I wanted it to rise above.”

Judging from this, we can assume we’ll hear a lot more about it on the post-Full Gear episode of Dynamite.

    I figured Moxley would lose tonight and then be over in Japan until Wrestle Kingdom. With him winning, maybe the whole “the company is trying to screw me” storyline continues and he attacks another ref and gets suspended or he decides to take his ball and go home with either outcome explaining him being over in Japan for the next little while.

    Yeah. That’s fair, was thinking maybe they could add the title as a sort of compensation to address Moxley’s criticisms of how the company is trying to screw him.

    The only thing is that if they did that, it could not be a sanctioned or recognized title. They primarily use the stipulation to get around the wins and loses mattering.

  • Keith Learmonth

    If they’re smart, and want to differentiate themselves from WWE, it’ll be the Lights Out championship, that can only be defended under the “lights out” stipulation they use. Basically a modern, more serious take on the hardcore title.

    Calling it now: It’s either going to be the Undeniable title or the Dream title.
