They have a plan for that. Titles are some of the most important aspects to wrestling as they are the symbol of a top star. Fans can instantly understand the idea of a champion with a shiny belt and that has been the case for almost all of wrestling’s history. Since there are so many titles in modern wrestling, there has to be a way to make a title stand out. Now we might have an idea of how that will be done with one in particular.
At Forbidden Door, Pac won the inaugural AEW All Atlantic Title in a four way match. During an interview with the Masked Man Show, AEW President Tony Khan revealed that the title will be a traveling championship, with the title being defended in various promotions around the world. This comes as Pac already has international title defenses scheduled, including some in the United Kingdom.
Opinion: This is an interesting way to go with the title and something that could work out well for AEW. It allows the company to have an international presence that keeps its name out there while also allowing for some fresh matches. If nothing else, it also gives Pac something to do without needing him to be on AEW TV every single week. That’s a smart change as AEW has made a good move here.
What do you think of the change? How will Pac do as champion? Let us know in the comments below.
