AEW announces new TNT CHAMPIONSHIP title belt

An eight man tournament will crown the first champion.

All Elite Wrestling has announced the creation of the company’s first new championship title since its founding, the TNT Championship. Beginning on the April 8 episode of Dynamite, the company will hold an eight-man tournament to crown their inaugural TNT Champion with a brand new belt.

The final match of the TNT Championship tournament will be held at AEW’s new upcoming PPV event, Double or Nothing, on Saturday, May 23, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“It’s been a privilege working with Kevin Reilly and TNT to bring fans the best live wrestling show week after week on AEW: DYNAMITE, especially during these tumultuous times,” said Tony Khan, president and CEO of AEW. “I’m glad we’re now able to announce the TNT CHAMPIONSHIP. The first ever titleholder will be determined by an unforgettable tournament that fans will not want to miss, and that our wrestlers will be desperate to win. I’m excited for the announcement of the full bracket live on Dynamite this week. And, it’s only fitting that the champion and the title belt will carry the logo of the globally-respected TNT brand, and that they’ll represent not only AEW but also the great quality programming, massive reach, and storied history in the wrestling business that are all associated with TNT.”
