Cody Rhodes Confirms Status of TNT Championship in AEW

Last updated

AEW EVP Cody Rhodes recently spoke to Connor Casey of Comic Book. The former TNT Champion discussed a number of topics during the interview, including the belt that he once held.

With AEW making the move from the TNT network to TBS in 2022, fans have speculated whether or not the TNT Championship will need to be renamed. Rhodes confirmed that the belt will not be undergoing a name change.

“I don’t want to drop any spoilers, but I mean, I’ll drop a spoiler” Cody Rhodes began. “I don’t think we’re going to change the title’s name one bit. TNT is the place that the first alternative challenger brand in two decades appeared on.”

“Their excitement, our partners at WarnerMedia, and the TNT title, as I’ve stated, I think it is, if not the most important title in wrestling, the second most important title in wrestling” Rhodes added.

“I don’t see us changing that name, and I think that’s kind of across the board” the former Champion revealed. “I don’t think you’ll find anybody in management or Tony himself who wants to change that name.”

“We’ll always roll with the punches and we’ll always pivot, but I’m 99% sure the TNT title stays the TNT title” Cody Rhodes concluded.
