Sammy Guevara wins interim TNT title at AEW Battle of the Belts

Guevara's first challenger was also established.

A new interim TNT Champion has been crowned.

Sammy Guevara defeated Dustin Rhodes in the interim TNT Championship match at tonight's AEW Battle of the Belts show in Charlotte to win the title.

Guevara pinned Rhodes with a cradle after escaping a Tiger Driver attempt to lay claim to the interim title. The interim TNT Championship was established after Cody Rhodes was not medically cleared to wrestle on tonight's show.

A new challenger for the interim TNT title was quickly established on tonight's show. After Guevara's win, Daniel Garcia came to the ring and confronted him. The two went face-to-face, then Guevara issued a challenge to Garcia in a post-match interview backstage. It was announced later in the show that the match is official for this coming Wednesday's AEW Dynamite.

Guevara is a former TNT Champion, having held the title from September to December 2021. He dropped the belt to Cody on the Christmas night Rampage, taped December 22.
