As previously reported, a big announcement was recently made by WarnerMedia that AEW’s flagship show, Dynamite, will be moving to TBS starting January 2022. It was also announced that the company will be premiering a brand-new one-hour show called “AEW Rampage” on Friday, August 13th at 10PM ET on TNT as well as four brand-new “supercard” annual specials. “AEW Rampage” will reportedly be moving to TBS as well starting January 2022.
After the announcement, rumors and speculations were circling on what the future may hold for the TNT Championship. Dave Meltzer noted on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio Program that the plan is for the company to retain the TNT Championship name when AEW programming moves to TBS in 2022 instead of changing it since both TNT and TBS are owned by WarnerMedia.
The TNT Title was first introduced by the company last March during a tournament, which saw Cody come out of the winner and the inaugural TNT Champion. Cody then lost the title to the late Mr. Brodie Lee and Cody Rhodes would then regain it once again. Cody would then lose the title to Darby Allin and he would lose it to Miro on the May 12th episode of Dynamite.
Miro, the current TNT Champion, is set to defend his TNT Championship against Lance Archer at the AEW Double or Nothing PPV Event on May 30th.
