Cody to defend AEW TNT title every week, Jungle Boy wins battle royal


Jungle Boy will be the first to challenge Cody for the TNT championship next week.

The final four participants in tonight's battle royal were Wardlow, MJF, Jungle Boy, and Orange Cassidy. The latter two managed to eliminate MJF and Wardlow, leaving them by themselves. After a back and forth battle, Jungle Boy sent Orange Cassidy to the floor with a hurricanrana, holding on to the ropes for the win.

Jungle Boy will be Cody’s first opponent for the championship. Cody came out for an interview on tonight’s show and said that going forward, he’ll be defending the championship each and every week in an open challenge.

Along with the TNT championship match, the Tag Team titles will also be on the line as Kip Sabian & Jimmy Havoc will face Hangman Page & Kenny Omega, where the winners will face Best Friends at Fyter Fest sometime this summer. Chris Jericho will also be in action.
