Cody Rhodes had won the TNT title back in October
Cody Rhodes took on Mr. Brodie Lee on the October 7, 2020 edition of AEW Dynamite for the TNT title, in a Dog Collar match. Cody emerged victorious in the end and won the TNT title for the second time in his career. He went on to kick off a feud with fellow AEW star Orange Cassidy and later defeated him to retain the title.
Tonight, Darby Allin put Cody Rhodes down to become the AEW TNT Champion, and here's hoping that he gets a lengthy stint with the belt, unlike the past two reigns.Published 08 Nov 2020, 09:55 IST
