The champ is a star. Check out some of his time as champion:
Opinion: That is quite the impressive feat as Friedman has managed to hold onto the championship longer than anyone else in the history of AEW. The reign has elevated him that much higher up the ladder and his natural talents have already given him quite a bit. It should be interesting to see what he can do with the title going forward, as the reign could last for a long time.
