New AEW World Champion CM Punk has his eyes set on more gold in the company, teasing that he wants the highly anticipated Trios Titles with FTR.
CM Punk wrote his names in the history books at Double Or Nothing as he became the fifth man in history to capture the AEW World Championship after defeating Hangman Adam Page. Punk will hold the title going into AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois with one NJPW star already teasing a challenge to Punk.
But now CM Punk has alluded to wanting more gold in AEW, as he says he wants to hold trios titles with current AAA and ROH Tag Team Champions FTR.
Trios Championships for All Elite Wrestling have long been in-demand by fans. Recently, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter’s Dave Meltzer confirmed that AEW Trios Championships had been made, with Tony Khan himself now reiterating that they are indeed in existence. However, they may not be the only new titles up Tony’s sleeve.
“I saw Dave reported it and nobody’s asked me on the record yet, but it is truthful that I have made the belts. I made them a long time ago, to be honest with you. They’ve never been seen, and I did have them made. I do have more championship belts in my possession that have never been unveiled than anybody might suspect.”
On social media, CM Punk responded to someone clamouring to see Punk and FTR team up for the gold, with Punk saying it’d be better for all concerned if AEW just handed the Bret Hart appreciation society the gold:
“Just give us the straps so we don’t have to hurt your favs.”
