Tony Khan Teases Creating Another AEW Title

Tony Khan AEW

AEW Double Or Nothing saw seven matches take place with titles on the line but Tony Khan still has an interest in adding more gold to his company.

Mercedes Mone captured the first AEW title of her career as she won the TBS Championship from Willow Nightingale in Las Vegas. There was another first-time champion crowned on the show as Will Ospreay defeated Roderick Strong to claim the AEW International Championship.

There was more success for AEW Women’s World Champion Toni Storm who retained her gold against Serena Deeb and AEW World Champion Swerve Strickland who saw off Christian Cage despite interference from The Patriarchy.

Currently, there are 9 active titles in Tony Khan’s AEW – including the non-sanctioned FTW Title held by Chris Jericho – but that does not include ROH and NJPW championships that have also been defended in the company.

Tony Khan Interested In AEW Mixed Tag Team Title

At the post-show media scrum, Tony Khan was asked about potentially adding tag team or trios titles to the AEW’s women’s division and noted that he’s been trying to add depth to the women’s division once again but he does have interest in adding a mixed tag team title:

We’ve talked a lot about potential additions in terms of championships. Right now, we have strong rivalries emerging. We’re still trying to build the depth back to the strongest it’s ever been. There was a point, All Out 2021, where I was coaching the Casino Battle Royal and we had 21 women in that battle royale and a great Britt Baker vs. Kris Statlander championship match. That was, top to bottom, up until now, the deepest the division has ever been.

A lot of great people in that match have been out or injured. We’re going to keep getting depth back and getting the division stronger. Those are interesting championships.

I also think something different we could do here, that I have interest in, would be mixed tag team championships. I think a lot of people would be interested in that too. That’s different than what other major promotions have, and I think it would set AEW apart. I’m interested in mixed tag team championships.

Mexican promotion AAA has a World Mixed Tag Team Championship that was previously held in 2022 by AEW stars Sammy Guevara and Tay Melo.
