AEW recently unveiled the All Atlantic Title, which was brought out last month. The title was then put on the line at the Forbidden Door pay-per-view on June 26th. After a long battle, it was PAC who ended up winning the match and became the inaugural champion. Now Pac is going around the world defending that title, but Jim Ross is still confused about AEW introducing the title in the first place.
PAC has successfully defended the title against Shota Umino on July 10th. He is now set to defend it against LJ Cleary at Over The Top Wrestling’s Poetry Slam event on July 22nd.
While speaking on his Grilling JR podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross admitted that he does not really understand the point of the All Atlantic Championship.
“I didn’t understand that (creating the All-Atlantic Title), but it doesn’t matter what I understand. I’m not against it, but did we need it? I don’t know that we needed it, but I also don’t know how big of an asset it’s going to be internationally for us.
I know that we’re going to go to places, like PAC is defending that title now in the UK I get it all the time. When are you guys coming to England? When are you going to do a pay-per-view? When are you going to do this? Well, when we come to England, you can bet your ass it’s going to be big. Tony’s got great business contacts there.”
Tony Khan also confirmed that the All Atlantic Championship will be a traveling championship. We will have to wait and see how PAC will be booked as the champion in the coming weeks.
