• Top AEW Wrestler Says He Doesn’t Need The AEW World Championship
In the main event of tonight’s AEW Dynamite, Miro (fka Rusev in WWE) defeated Darby Allin to win the TNT Championship.
After Dynamite went off the air, Darby cut a promo and said the following about his loss:
“When I became TNT Champion, I told everybody it was the only championship that meant anything to me. And I mean that 100%.
People ask me, ‘When are going to win the big one? When are you going to win the AEW Championship?’ I look them dead in the eye and said, ‘I don’t need that sh*t. I need the TNT Championship.’
I don’t need to collect any other belts from anywhere else in this world. I need the TNT Championship. And I guarantee you — every single one of you here — this is not the last time I am TNT Champion.
Thank you for all the support. It means the world to me.”
