Former AEW TNT Champion Darby Allin spoke to AEW Control Center ahead of this week’s episode of Dynamite and gave his thoughts on the current state of the TNT Championship.
He said that the title isn’t as prestigious as it used to be because it has started changing hands too frequently.
Below is what Sting’s tag team partner said:
“I’m gonna be honest when I say this. To me, the TNT Championship used to mean something. Within the last year, I’ve felt it lost all its value.
I remember the people that used to hold it. Guys like Cody, guys like Brodie Lee, myself. Back then, it meant something. Now, it’s like a hot potato. Honestly, I feel like it’s lost it’s value.
So when I say at All Out, I want to put some respect back on that championship’s name, I mean every word of that. Because you got a guy like Christian Cage, for example, walking around saying he’s the champion.
Come on, man. We’re not stupid. You’re wasting people’s time. That championship means more than that.
Then you got a dinosaur as the champion that never defends it? What are we doing here? What are we doing here?”
Allin is set to challenge for the TNT Championship at the All Out PPV in Chicago on September 3rd.
