TNT Championship is AEW’s secondary singles male title. It is named after TNT Channel on which AEW’s weekly show Dynamite used to air at first, and is considered the television championship. AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes was the inaugural TNT Champion after winning the knockout tournament final at AEW Double or Nothing 2020.
Title Belt Design
The original AEW TNT title belt is built on a red leather strap. It features six plates with the TNT logo in the middle. Inner plates on either side feature the “Tara on Techwood” building which use to be TNT Headquarters in Atlanta. The other plates have the AEW logo on them. The title belt was not complete when it was first presented to inaugural champion Cody Rhodes at AEW Double or Nothing.
After former TNT Champion Brodie Lee’s death, his elder son was honored with AEW TNT title for a lifetime and the belt design was retired. A new design was unveiled on 6 January 2021 edition of AEW Dynamite.
