• WWE Hall Of Famer Makes Fun Of AEW For Defending The TNT Title On TBS
Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling first introduced their TNT Championship in 2020 and Cody Rhodes became the inaugural title holder, when he defeated Jake Roberts’ client Lance Archer at the AEW Double or Nothing 2020 PPV.
Unfortunately for the young up-and-coming promotion, Warner Bros Discovery US Networks changed the TV channel for AEW’s weekly flagship show AEW Dynamite in January 2022 and moved it from TNT to TBS.
On this week’s episode of Dynamite, Wardlow defeated Tony Nese to retain the TNT Championship.
WCW Legend Eric Bischoff tweeted the following about this title defense:
“TNT Championship title defense on TBS? Makes sense.”
Eric Bischoff used to run Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling back in the day, with several weekly shows (WCW Thunder, WCW Saturday Night, WCW Main Event, WCW PRO) as well as the occasional WCW Clash of the Champions specials all airing on TBS, while their weekly flagship show WCW Monday NITRO aired on TNT.
