• “Just adding Titles to make talent happy is really bullsh*t” – Jim Ross
On a recent episode of his weekly ‘Grilling JR’ podcast, current AEW Commentator Jim Ross addressed the potential of All Elite Wrestling adding more championships in the future, like for example a Six-Man Tag Team Title or a Junior Heavyweight Title.
Here’s what Good Old J.R. had to say:
“AEW doesn’t have a Junior Heavyweight Title, I’m not advocating it either. Too many titles really spoils the soup for me, you don’t need that many. I heard somebody say the other day they hoped AEW had a six-man tag title and I wouldn’t be against it but it wouldn’t be something I’d be breaking my door down and running up and down the halls for.
It’s hard to maintain a positive focus on multiple titles. Which one is the most important? I think that the trend nowadays is let’s just add more titles, it’ll solve our issues. No, it doesn’t and if you get too many they become watered down.
I’m very proud of the fact that in AEW we have three primary titles. One for the women and then two singles titles for the men. I think that’s about right, if you’re a female competitor you know what your goal is.
The TNT Title that Miro is holding is certainly one that is reminiscent of a TV Title in my opinion. I’m not lessening it, that’s just what it reminds me of. Of course the big title is the one Kenny Omega is holding, I think we’re doing that right.
Just adding Titles to make talent happy is really bullsh*t.”

• Old School Wrestling Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 77th birthday of Old School Wrestling Veteran Jos LeDuc (Real name: Michel Pigeon).
After touring the territories during the 60s, 70s & 80s, he also had a brief stint in the World Wrestling Federation by 1988, but failed to make much of an impact.
However Vince McMahon did get him a role in the Hulk Hogan movie ‘No Holds Barred’ as a character called the “Big Headbanger”.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
