AEW introduced a new women’s title on last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite as it was revealed to be the TBS Championship.
While the AEW women’s division certainly needs a lot of work, there are still talented performers in the division, including the likes of Hikaru Shida, Britt Baker and Thunder Rosa.
While many fans are in support of the TBS Title as it would let other women wrestlers shine, it seems Jim Cornette doesn’t think it was a good idea.
While speaking on the Jim Cornette Experience, Jim Cornette blasted AEW for introducing the TBT Championship despite the company having a weak women’s division.
“Tony Schiavone was in the ring with the new TBS Title belt since we’re moving off TNT. But apparently, now the TBS title belt will only be for women. Okay, they’ve got a TNT Title because I guess Dynamite is going to stay on TNT, or not Dynamite.
If you’re going to stay on Friday nights, Rampage is going to stay on TNT. They’re going to make the TV title on Dynamite for the women when they’ve already got the Women’s Championship. Now they’re going to have another women’s title when they do not even have a women’s division that is good enough to carry this.”
The finals of the tournament to decide the first TBS Champion will be held on January 5th, so the tournament will be held in the next couple of months. It remains to be seen who the first champion will be.
