Cody Rhodes spoke today on a media call ahead of AEW Full Gear tomorrow night in Baltimore, MD.

During the call, a question came up asking about a secondary or “midcard” title being added to All Elite Wrestling. Cody stated, “It’s very possible in the next month or so there will be a prize of some sorts for the guys rising through the ranks, I would never consider it a midcard title.”

Historically the term “midcard” is associated as something that is not as important as the main event, and Cody hopes to make that a change in AEW. He wants to remove the stigma associated with talent who are moving through the ranks of a company.

During the interview Cody mentioned how he wants the AEW Women’s and Tag Team Titles to hold the same prestige as the AEW World Championship.

Here the full audio from today’s AEW media call below.
