Jim Ross: AEW Doesn't Need More Titles

JR thinks the trophy cabinet is fine the way it is

With four sanctioned titles (and the FTW Title) across its men’s and women’s divisions, and a new extra hour of programming to sort, there has been calls from some AEW fans that there needs to be more championships in the mix in All Elite Wrestling.

However, AEW announcer Jim Ross doesn’t necessarily think it’s a good idea, saying on The Grilling JR podcast:

“AEW doesn’t have a Junior Heavyweight Title, I’m not advocating it either. Too many titles really spoils the soup for me, you don’t need that many. I heard somebody say the other day they hoped AEW had a six-man tag title and I wouldn’t be against it but it wouldn’t be something I’d be breaking my door down and running up and down the halls for.

“It’s hard to maintain a positive focus on multiple titles. Which one is the most important? I think that the trend nowadays is let’s just add more titles, it’ll solve our issues. No, it doesn’t and if you get too many they become watered down. I’m very proud of the fact that in AEW we have three primary titles. One for the women and then two singles titles for the men. I think that’s about right, if you’re a female competitor you know what your goal is. The TNT title that Miro is holding is certainly one that is reminiscent of a TV Title in my opinion. I’m not lessening it, that’s just what it reminds me of. Of course the big title is the one Kenny Omega is holding, I think we’re doing that right. Just adding titles to make talent happy is really bulls***.”
