The AEW TNT Championship Tournament finals were held at this past weekend’s Double Or Nothing PPV. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Title Belt was not finished in time for Saturday’s Double or Nothing event. AEW debuted an unfinished version of the belt instead.
The match saw Cody Rhodes victorious over Lance Archer to become the first-ever TNT Champion. The belt was presented to Cody by boxing legend Mike Tyson. Tyson will also appear on tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite.

It was mentioned during the TNT Title Match at Double or Nothing that the belt was not finished, as did Cody Rhodes in the post-show media scrum. The belt maker for the AEW TNT Title, RED Leather issued a statement addressing the belt’s “in progress” design, which stated:
“Unfortunately due to Covid-19 the platers I used are working on skeleton crews and can only work on respirators / emergency equipment. Once regular business resumes this belt will get some much needed highlights in nickel and gold as well as a relief TNT logo.”
The finished version of the AEW TNT Championship is supposed to be revealed on tonight’s episode of Dynamite according to Cody Rhodes during the Double or Nothing post-show media scrum.
According to RED Leather, the following is “nearly exact to what the final belt will be.”
On tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite there will be a Battle Royal to determine the #1 Contender for the AEW TNT Championship. The winner will face Cody Rhodes for the title on the June 3rd episode of Dynamite.

What do you think of the finished version of the AEW TNT Championship? Do you like it more than the unfinished version that AEW debuted at Double Or Nothing?
