Since the inception of AEW’s women’s division, the belt has only seen five champions. The division has improved exponentially since, and Tony Khan continues to add world class talent to the roster.
With the division being one of the deepest in pro wrestling, it’s time we look forward and see who could have successful titles runs in the near future. Check out the five women who could elevate the division to new heights as AEW Women’s Champion…
Though Jade Cargill is still green and developing, she is the most dominant champion in AEW currently. She’s also undefeated in singles competition, which has allowed her to make the TBS Championship one of the most relevant titles in the company. It’s only a matter of time before they have her running the entire division, alongside her Baddies of course.
Cargill is strong, has one of the best physiques in pro wrestling, and is drop dead gorgeous. She has the presence, the attitude, and the mic skills to be one of the biggest stars to come out of AEW developmental. In a year or two, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Jade as the first “grand slam” champion in AEW…
Jamie Hayter is a great wrestler that has all the tools needed to be AEW Women’s Champion. She has experience from all over the world before she signed with AEW. Hayter is one of the best workers the women’s division has to offer, and one of the most experienced workers in a very young roster.
Hayter currently is in a long-term story regarding her and Britt Baker. Once that story is finally triggered, Hayter could be launched into the world title picture. Time will tell if Tony Khan pulls the trigger… Knowing the booking of Khan, he’ll take his time with Hayter once her eventual program with Baker is over. She could also have a run with the TBS title before going after the main belt.
Toni Storm is one of the most popular wrestlers in the AEW women’s division. Putting the world title on her is a no-brainer booking decision. Storm is also one of the best workers the division has, and in a similar case to Hayter, she has experience wrestling all over the world.
Storm is one of the most likely wrestlers on this list to have a world title run in AEW. It’s just a matter of time with her… I wouldn’t be a surprise if by this time next year, Storm is the AEW Women’s World Champion.
The evolution of Conti as a worker has been one of the biggest success stories in AEW, as well as a big detriment to the WWE Performance Center. Conti’s in-ring wrestling is inspired by workers like Shibata, Ishii, and Omega. She has recently started to develop aerial moves, thanks to her husband Sammy Guevara helping her out on that department.
Time is on Conti’s side, she’s a young wrester and has plenty of time to develop all the aspects she’s still green at inside the squared circle. Conti should have an excursion to Japan and wrestle there for a few months. Once that happens, Conti would be ready for a world title run.
Serena Deeb has been putting over others since her time in AEW and that needs to change… One of the best technical wrestlers in the world, “The Professor” could have an extremely successful run as AEW Women’s Champion if given the opportunity. When having new titles in pro wrestling, having a veteran lift the title’s prestige should always be top of mind for any booker.
AEW missed having Deeb & Punk claim the titles on the same night. With Thunder Rosa’s mediocre run as champion, it’s time to throw in a curveball with someone who can wrestle circles around most. The women’s title should be the most relevant, and it’s falling second to Jade’s TBS title at the moment. So injecting Serena into the title picture for the long haul would be just what the title needs.
Who do you think could have successful reigns as AEW Women’s Champion in the next few years?
