• Jim Ross Thinks AEW Will Introduce A New Championship Title
During a recent episode of “Grilling JR” podcast, former WCW/WWF play-by-play announcer & current AEW commentator Jim Ross spoke about the possibility of AEW introducing a 6-Man Tag Team Championship.
Here’s what the 2007 WWE Hall of Famer said:
“The six-man titles were a kiss of death, it’s like giving somebody a title like the cruiserweight title because cruiserweight’s have been marketed so poorly along with the junior heavyweight title which I’m partial to.
There’s certain things that in today’s world, they’re just not going to accept. I shudder to think that if AEW wanted to have six-man tag champions, and I think that will happen. I’m guessing, I don’t know this because we’re so tag team heavy.
Adding another guy to someone else’s duo is more doable because we have so many tag teams that are getting regular TV exposure.”
The most famous 6-man title in professional wrestling history was the WCW World Six-Man Tag Team Championship, which was an active title in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling between February 17, 1991 and December 4, 1991, as well as its predecessor, the NWA World Six-Man Tag Team Championship that was active in Jim Crockett Promotions (sanctioned by the National Wrestling Alliance) from July 18, 1984 until January 1989.
