It’s part of growing. Despite feeling like such a big deal already, AEW is still not very old. We are only about nine months into their run and less than five months into their time running weekly television. They have come a very long way in such a short amount of time and that means they have a long way to go. There are a lot of things left to do and now we might know one of their next big steps.
One of the most important things in wrestling is having the right amount of titles. If a company can’t find the right mixture of everything involved, the whole situation is going to be out of whack and that isn’t going to help anyone. AEW is still new to the title scene as they only have one title change in history, but we might be seeing another opportunity in the near future.
Cody was recently a guest on Wrestling Observer Radio and talked about wanting to implement a midcard title in AEW. Without saying what it was, Cody said that they had a different kind of title in the works and hoped that it would be introduced by the end of the year. Cody also suggested that a midcard/Television Title and Women’s Tag Team Titles could both be coming, though again he did not give a specific time.
There are a few wrestlers who could use something like this. Check out some wrestlers who would benefit from a midcard title:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that AEW needs. There are so many wrestlers running around the company with nothing to fight for because they aren’t getting anywhere near the World Title scene. A midcard title can change that, though I hope they don’t try to get too clever with it. Just call it something with a catchy name and let it be what it is supposed to be. It would help things a lot and AEW seems smart enough to understand that.
