During the main event of last Wednesday’s episode of Dynamite, a new TNT Champion was crowned when we saw Miro defeat Darby Allin. After AEW Dynamite went off the air, Allin grabbed the mic and addressed the live crowd in attendance. Allin explained how the TNT Title meant to him and that he doesn’t need the AEW World Title, all he needs is the TNT Championship. Allin also said that he guarantees this is not the last time he becomes the TNT Champion.
This is what Darby Allin said:
“When I became TNT Champion, I told everybody it was the only championship that meant anything to me.” “And I mean that one-hundred percent. People ask me, ‘When are going to win the big one? When are you going to win the AEW [World] Championship?’ I look them dead in the eye and said, ‘I don’t need that s***. 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.”
For weeks now, Darby Allin and Sting have been in some sort of a feud with Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky so it is likely that for the time being, this is the next storyline feud for Allin.
