Cody Rhodes Teases New AEW Title Belt, Talks TBS Title and More
Posted By: Ben Jordan Kerin on May 30, 2021
During an AEW Double or Nothing media conference call, Cody Rhodes was asked about the future of the TNT title after the recent announcement that AEW will be moving to TBS in January 2022.
He also teased AEW a new title belt.
On TNT title, and a possible new title:
"The TBS title has not been discussed yet, but another title as a lot of people can guess has been the title that has been more discussed about potentially coming in the future. I’ll let y’all speculate on what that is. Hint hint, we have a lot of people, teams, on the roster."
On a TBS title:
"You never know. Remember the origins of the TNT Title was WarnerMedia, our television partner and provider, was the one that wanted us to have it. That was a first in all of wrestling, for your partner in the space to say, ‘We’d like you to represent us,’ which is why we’ll keep it the TNT Title throughout its time. It’s my favorite belt in all of wrestling."
On the rise of AEW:
"I guess the way I’d put it is I’m not surprised at the expansion, but I’ve always been the eternal pessimist. The reasoning for that is I grew up in a wrestling family. I can’t tell you how many times I heard, ‘Oh, this show’s going to get TV. This is going to be on this network.’ It was not until Tony Khan that wrestling was able to be brought back to a comparable network and actually have an alternative and a challenger in the space that has been [without one] for almost two decades. Even that, I know this can all end on the drop of a hat, but it is amazing how quickly we’ve expanded. Especially now expanding into the TBS territory."
