During last night’s AEW Dynamite episode, Tony Khan awarded the TNT Championship to Brodie Lee Jr or Negative One of the Dark Order, for life.
The show aired as a tribute to the life of former TNT Champion Brodie Lee, and the final segment saw the owner of AEW handover the title to Lee’s son.
On the post Dynamite show, Tony Schiavone confirmed that the current incarnation of the TNT Championship will be retired.
A new design will be unveiled soon, with the current champion Darby Allin set to defend the title on Night Two of New Year’s Smash against Brian Cage.
It was reported earlier that Brodie Lee Jr. has been signed to a contract with AEW, and will start wrestling for the promotion once he is of age.
