As AEW continues to grow, Tony Khan sees the opportunity to one day expand their title picture.
One of the trademarks of AEW during its two-year run has been the use of groups. A decent portion of the roster, even if traditionally singles competitors, has, at the very least, a partner or faction backing them up. This has led many fans to wonder whether a trios title could be introduced by the promotion at some point in the future.
During the All Out media call, Tony Khan addressed that topic, saying the following:
"We see matches sometimes that don't always have title implications, but absolutely I think it would be great to add Trios Titles. Right now, it's a lot of stuff that I'm getting in three hours and I take a lot of pride in covering a lot in a two-hour Dynamite and then Rampage is very different, it's a more focused one-hour show. They are very different formats. You still get great wrestling in both shows, but I also cover a lot of stories in Dynamite in a different way than I would with Rampage. It's a lot right now. As we grow as a company, I do think there is definitely a place for that and there is a place for championships to expand.
Right now, we have great titles and I have thought about other championships, including a Trios Championship among others. We've had a lot of great trios matches. To be honest, I bet I used to do more trios matches than I have lately. I haven't done a study of the numbers, but my gut says I used to do more trios matches at Daily's Place than I do now, but I could be wrong. It feels that way. I'm still into doing trios matches, we've seen a lot on Dynamite over the years. It doesn't feel like I'm leaning on it as much as I used to. There are reasons for that. We've been showcasing a lot of stories and story matches. There is a time and a place for everything and we have a lot of great trios, undoubtedly. I think a Trios Championship would really kick ass. It does make a lot of sense and I've spent a lot of time thinking about it."
AEW All Out takes place later today. Fightful will have live coverage of the event beginning at 7 p.m. EST. We will also have a post-show review immediately following its conclusion.
