Tony Khan, President and CEO of All Elite Wrestling spoke with TSN and confirmed that the long awaited Trios Titles have been made, and they’ve actually been ready for quite some time. fans however will still need to wait a bit longer for any sort of official announcement about the belts or a tournament for the inaugural champions.
“I saw Dave [Meltzer] reported it and nobody’s asked me on the record yet, but it is truthful that I have made the belts,” Khan said. “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.”
According to Tony Khan, the TBS Championship held now by one of AEW’s brightest young stars, Jade Cargill, sat vacant in his office for months prior to it being unveiled in October of 2021. He also added that after his purchase of ROH he is open to the idea of using their existing titles as well.
“The Ring of Honor purchase and now the great stable of champions[hips] and IP and, not only the legacy of past events, but the great slate of, I think, potential future events we can do with Ring of Honor and all that was kind of a surprise to everybody that we kept under wraps, that came together more quickly, whereas the trios championships are something I’ve thought about for a long time.”
Not being known for his subtlety, Khan also teased the chance of other titles he may be thinking of introducing.
“But there are more championship belts than people might think that I’ve had up my sleeve and the trios championship are, arguably, the foremost.”
