Tony Khan Comments On The Possibility Of AEW Adding Trios Titles

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.
