Cody Wins TNT Championship, to Defend Against Orange Cassidy at AEW Dynamite Anniversary Episode

This week’s episode of AEW Dynamite saw the inaugural TNT Champion Cody facing Brodie Lee in a Dog Collar match with the TNT Championship on the line.

Lee had won the championship off Cody on the August 22 episode of Dynamite, after which he and his Dark Order brutally beat down Cody and his allies.

On Cody’s return to Dynamite, Lee challenged him to a Dog Collar match, with the championship on the line.

The match happened on this week’s episode of Dynamite and featured a special guest in the audience. Wrestling legend Greg “The Hammer” Valentine, who was part of a famous Dog Collar Match with Roddy Piper back in 1983, was in attendance.

Cody beat Lee and, afterward, gave an interview to Tony Schiavone where he stated that he wanted to defend the TNT Championship during the AEW Dynamite anniversary show next week.

In response to Cody’s challenge, Orange Cassidy strolled out and gave a “thumbs up” to Cody. Cody returned Cassidy’s “thumbs up”, so it looks like we will get Cody vs. Cassidy next week.
