• AEW Releases Wrestler Rankings, New Title Coming Next Month
During a recent conference call, AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes revealed plans for a new Championship Title coming to All Elite Wrestling next month.
Below is what Cody said:
“As a talent, you never consider anything you’re doing mid-card. I didn’t consider my run with the Intercontinental Championship mid-card. I wanted it to be the best thing. I wanted it to rise above.
With all my little rant aside. I think it’s very possible in the next month or so, there will be a prize of some sorts for the guys rising through the ranks, because that is important to wrestling.
But I would never consider it a mid-card title.”
Speaking of AEW, they have released their Top 5 rankings for the men’s, women’s and tag team divisions.
