AEW is reportedly set to add more gold to the company with the introduction of a secondary women’s title that could mark the move from TNT to TBS.
According to Andrew Zarian of The Mat Men Podcast, All Elite Wrestling is set to introduce a new title for the female stars of the company to compete over.
Taking to social media, Zarian wrote:
“Hearing rumblings of a new title being introduced to AEW soon. It will be a secondary women’s championship.”

He then followed up his Tweet on Denise Salcedo’s Speak Now Pro Wrestling show after Dynamite Grand Slam in New York City. During his appearance on that Zarian reported that the new title will be called the TBS Championship.
Following Warner Media’s acquisition of NHL rights, both AEW Dynamite and AEW Rampage are set to move from TNT to its sister station TBS in January 2022. It had previously been mentioned by the first-ever TNT Champion Cody Rhodes that the company was not going to change the name of that title in response to the move.
There is strength in depth in the women’s roster of AEW with 23 women listed as part of the company. This does not include competitors such as Kiera Hogan and Diamante who were recently part of the women’s Casino Battle Royale at All Out and frequently appear on AEW Dark or Elevation.
The biggest prize in the AEW women’s division was on the line in the main event of AEW Grand Slam when Dr. Britt Baker DMD defended her title against the winner of the Casino Battle Royale, Ruby Soho. With the help of a distraction from Jamie Hayter, Baker was able to apply the Lockjaw to Soho for the submission victory, marking Baker’s fourth successful defence of the title she won in May at Double Or Nothing.
