AEW Retires Current TNT Championship Design In Honor Of Brodie Lee


Brodie Lee Jr. was named 'TNT Champion for Life' on this week's Dynamite

AEW has decided to retire the current design of the TNT Championship in honor of the late Brodie Lee who passed away due to a lung ailment this past Saturday on December 26.

The main event of this week’s episode of Dynamite saw the team of Cody Rhodes, Orange Cassidy & Ten beating Team Taz (Brian Cage, Powerhouse Hobbs & Ricky Starks) in a six men tag team match.

After the bout, Brodie Lee‘s older son was brought into the ring and he was awarded a TNT title belt. AEW President Tony Khan then named Brodie Lee Jr. a “TNT Champion for life” and the show ended with a tribute video.

In the Dynamite post-show later on, Tony Schiavone confirmed that the company will be retiring the current belt design for the TNT title and the negative one will always have the TNT belt with the current design.

“Little Brodie, ‘Negative One’ if you will, is always going to have that TNT belt, we’ll come up with a new belt,” said Schiavone. “That’ll be his. The particular belt that was given to little Brodie tonight has been retired.”

There is no word yet on how long it will take the company to come up with a new design for the TNT title but it will likely take at least a few weeks before the company introduces the new belt.
