Tony Khan addresses the purpose of the AEW All Atlantic Championship


By Jason Powell, Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

AEW President Tony Khan spoke about the newly created AEW All Atlantic Championship in an interview with Connor Casey of “It’s a heavy emphasis on international competition, but the U.S. can get involved in the competition,” Khan said. “And I think it’s a great way to spotlight a lot of the international wrestlers in AEW, and the international presence that AEW’s developed over the years now with our shows on in 130 countries around the world and great ratings in so many huge international markets, including every week finishing as the number one wrestling company in the UK and our ratings there continue to rise… So for the international fans and for the international wrestlers on the roster, I felt like it would create more opportunities. But I also don’t think this title or these opportunities are exclusive to the international wrestlers. But it’s a big benefit of the term.” Read more at

Powell’s POV: I can’t say that Khan’s explanation sold me on the need for yet another title in AEW. Khan also declined to put a timeline on CM Punk’s return to the ring, but he did speak more about the AEW video library, streaming deals, the future of ROH, and booking the Forbidden Door event with New Japan Pro Wrestling booker Gedo.

    The All-Atlantic Championship has already had 3 participants that are from places that don’t touch the Atlantic. It’s a moronic move done by a adderall monkey with a trust fund.

    Even if someone could justify another belt in AEW, the name and participants cannot be explained in any kind of logical manner.

  2. I think if you leave out the ROH titles, which are not part of AEW, Tony needs to get rid of the TBS and TNT titles (belts named after a network? Umm…) and get some womens tag titles and just stop there. BTW, the Owen Hart belts are not AEW belts in the “AEW title” sense, so they need to stop carrying ’em around….

  3. Greatestone, I realize you feel as though your insults are funny and smart, but they are boring now. BREAKING NEWS…you can just not watch AEW. You don’t like it, so either you’re inane or you’ve been kidnapped and forced to watch it (and if its the latter, it could be worse…theyt could be making you watch WWE…).

  4. Roh belts are only there because they showcase roh on their tv.

    They are not Roh belts

    Tnt and tbs titles mean alot as do every belt on their show
    The owen belts were Just won, but they arent claiming to defend them. They are using the owen belts to get over more.

    I love it. Mid atlantic title gives the over seas guys who are over in Japan and europe, but don’t have the mic skills to be a world champion in america, eg (nakamura from wwe was huge japan star but does NOT have the mic skills to be a main event american draw)
