• AEW Wrestler Says The TNT Title Is The Coolest Thing He’s Ever Seen
The much anticipated introduction of the AEW TNT Championship took place at Double Or Nothing last week. However, fans were quite disappointed about the design of the Title.
Jim Ross revealed on commentary that the work on it hasn’t been completed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and it still needs a little more work.
While speaking on AEW’s media call after Double Or Nothing, the EVP of AEW, Cody Rhodes, said that the TNT Title is the coolest things he’s ever seen:
“We might have [the new TNT Title] as soon as the next Dynamite, but man, I don’t know if I want it because this is the one I got handed…
I’m sorry I’m very somewhat emotional this evening, but this is the one I got handed and I think it’s the coolest damn thing I’ve ever seen.”
