Eddie Kingston answers Cody's TNT title challenge on AEW Dynamite


Eddie Kingston answered Cody’s TNT title challenge tonight on Dynamite.

The show started with Cody in the ring. Kingston interrupted the ring announcer and cut a promo, tearing down Cody and comparing their own upbringings. He then challenged Cody to a no disqualification match for the title. Cody accepted, starting the match.

The two had a back and forth match, brawling both around and inside the ring. At one point, Kingston introduced thumbtacks and Cody even took a powerbomb into the thumbtacks. Despite this, Cody fought back Kingston with strikes, took him down with a figure four leglock and submitted him to retain the TNT title.

Kingston has recently wrestled for the National Wrestling Alliance, forming a tag team with Homicide. He’s also wrestled for Impact Wrestling in the past, as well as Ring of Honor.

Cody has faced a number of challengers for the title in recent weeks, including Ricky Starks (who was eventually signed to AEW), Jungle Boy, Jake Hager, and Sonny Kiss.
