AEW recently crowned its first world champion. The promotion’s first women’s world champion will be crowned on October 2nd and a tournament to crown inaugural tag team champions will begin on TNT this fall. Cody recently teased there could be a 4th championship coming to AEW, however. He recently spoke to IGN.com and hinted that AEW management has discussed the idea of a TV title as well.
“There’s a title we’re considering,” Cody said. “And it’s something people can probably guess since we’re going to be on TV, hint hint, but there are no plans for it at the moment. Right now we revolve around the AEW Championship and in D.C. we’re going to name the first ever AEW Women’s Champion, and that’s such a beautiful belt.”
Cody would continue to talk about the aesthetic value of the AEW Women’s belt and then insinuated there would be some guidelines for the new champion as to how she should take care of it.
“There’s going to be some guidelines laid out for whoever wins that title though,” Cody laughed. “Some guidelines about how they’re supposed to take care of it.”

Cody vs Chris Jericho – Full Gear
Cody also addressed his future AEW World Championship match at Full Gear on November 9th. He stressed, however, that neither he nor Jericho are guaranteed to be in that match. Jericho has to defend the title once beforehand on October 16th in Philadelphia and if Cody loses between now and Full Gear, his title shot could be in jeopardy.
“I’m coming off a win over Dustin, one of the best of all time, and coming off a win over Shawn Spears, who’s an absolute stud. Those were two huge wins. So me going for the title makes all the sense in the world. But it may not end up being me versus Chris Jericho,” Cody stressed. “Because Chris Jericho still has a title defense before that in Philadelphia. And it may not be me if I take a loss to Sammy Guevara on the premiere episode. I think Chris Jericho is probably going to get through his first title defense, but if he doesn’t we’re going to stick to our word about win/loss records being a deciding factor. It’s really about the data and who has the best record.”
