Cody Rhodes Comments on AEW Considering Adding a TV Title in the Future
IGN held a recent interview with Cody Rhodes and one of the topics discussed included AEW considering the idea of debuting a television championship at some point in the future.
“There’s a title we’re considering and it’s something people can probably guess since we’re going to be on TV, hint hint, but there are no plans for it at the moment. Right now we revolve around the AEW Championship and in D.C. we’re going to name the first ever AEW Women’s Champion, and that’s such a beautiful belt. I don’t know if people know, up close, that rose gold is layered into it. Brandi, Kenny Omega, and Tony did a great job getting that title. There’s going to be some guidelines laid out for whoever wins that title though. Some guidelines about how they’re supposed to take care of it.”
