Chris Jericho is currently at the top of the AEW food chain after beating Hangman Page at All Out to become the first, youngest and oldest-ever champion in the company's history and he will be defending his belt against Rhodes at Full Gear in November.
AEW will also be crowning a Women's World Champion on their first TNT TV show on October 2 but, speaking to IGN in an extensive interview, Rhodes hinted at a fourth belt, revealing that a TV title is a possibility and is under consideration.
"There's a title we're considering," he told the publication, "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."
Rhodes, who operates as AEW's Executive Vice President as well as a wrestler, poked a bit of fun Jericho's way, with the champ having lost his belt while eating at a LongHorn Steakhouse shortly after winning it.
"There's going to be some guidelines laid out for whoever wins that title though," he added with a laugh. "Some guidelines about how they're supposed to take care of it."
The belt has found its way back to Jericho after a university staff member found it near a Tallahassee highway and Cody says they're all just happy it's back where it belongs.
"Was it grand larceny? Did someone just put it on the roof? We don't know," he said. "I'm glad it was found. Stuff happens. Jericho's, like, a 60-year vet and one of the greatest of all time, this isn't his first rodeo. And he did everything he could to get it back. Thankfully it's back in the champion's hands."
Would A TV Title Be A Good Thing For AEW?
Well, it would certainly make things more interesting. AEW hasn't really put a foot wrong since their first PPV and they're continuing to make strides.
The addition of another title would be pretty cool but there is such a thing as too many belts and we're sure they're well aware.
