AEW has introduce a new title and the first champion is the most important one for any new title. This new champion will set the tone and perception fans will have about it.
The AEW women’s division has a lot of interesting wrestlers that could easily be the first TBS champion. Let’s look at the 5 wrestlers most likely could be the first TBS Champion.
AEW has done a perfect job building Jade Cargill up. She’s the total package and Cargill as the first TBS champion would be an interesting choice. Her reign as champion could be booked similar to that of Miro’s run as TNT champion as a undefeatable monster and when the right come, help elevate someone to the next level.
While Cargill makes sense as the first TBS champion, she’s still too green in some aspects of her in-ring work and to help establish a new championship it wouldn’t be best decision right now.
Tay Conti has improved so much since she joined AEW and she keeps getting better with time. Tay Conti is ready for the next level and the TBS championship might be it.
Conti is very popular with the AEW fans and a run as champion with her would be a good idea, but in a similar situation with Jade Cargill, she’s still green in some aspects of her in-ring work and a few more seasoning will be better for her before winning a championship in AEW.
Thunder Rosa is one of the better workers the AEW women’s division has and is one of the favorites to be the first TBS champion. Rosa would help carry the championship on it’s first months of inception with good matches.
While Thunder Rosa as TBS champion would be great, AEW’s booking seems to indicate that they have bigger plans for Rosa and the AEW Women’s title, so Rosa’s future is heading towards winning the biggest prize in the AEW women’s division.
Nyla Rose would a safe bet as the first TBS champion. She has a proven track record as AEW women’s champion and for new championship this would help giving it legitimacy from the start.
Nyla Rose is one of the favorites to win the TBS championship and carrying it during such vital time for this new title.
Hikaru Shida carried the women’s division during some dark times due to several reasons. Shida’s run as AEW women’s champion was really good and ever since she dropped it to Britt Baker, she’s been in limbo and the TBS championship would be the perfect way to get her on TV more often again.
Shida just like Rose and Rosa is a safe bet to carry a new title and help elevate the more inexperience talent on the roster.
Other names that could be great TBS champions are: Riho, Serena Deeb, Emi Sakura, Ruby Soho, Leyla Hirsch, Anna Jay and Red Velvet are good options as first TBS champions.
