The AEW TNT Championship is a professional wrestling championship created and promoted by All Elite Wrestling (AEW). The AEW TNT Championship was announced on March 30, 2020. The inaugural champion will be crowned at Double or Nothing on May 23, 2020 at Jacksonville, Florida. 


The Championship was named after TNT television network, which broadcasts AEW's flagship program - Dynamite. About the Championship being named after TNT Network, AEW President and CEO Tony Khan stated in a press release:


"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 the AEW but also the great quality programming, massive reach, and storied history in the wrestling business that are all associated with TNT."
