The AEW TBS Championship is a professional wrestling championship in All Elite Wrestling (AEW). It is the women's television championship and the secondary women's championship in AEW.

History[change | change source]

Dynamite moved to TBS on January 5, 2022.[1] Even though the show moved to TBS from TNT, Cody Rhodes announced that the TNT Championship wouldn't be renamed. AEW instead announced that a new championship called the AEW TBS Championship would be created.[2]

On the October 6, 2021 episode of Dynamite, commentator Tony Schiavone and referee Aubrey Edwards unveiled the title during a segment.[3]

The first champion was Jade Cargill. She defeated Ruby Soho in the finals of a tournament on the January 5, 2022 episode of Dynamite. She would go on to hold it for 508 days, which is the longest for any championship in AEW.[4]

Mercedes Moné is the current champion in her first reign. She defeated Willow Nightingale at Double or Nothing on May 26, 2024.[5]
