The semifinals of the TNT title tournament are now set.

The opening round of the tournament finished with Dustin Rhodes and Darby Allin picking up wins tonight over Sammy Guevara and Kip Sabian, respectively. Allin scored a win over Guevara tonight after locking in a pin maneuver called the Last Supper.

Rhodes told his brother Cody in the Road to the TNT title video that aired earlier this week that if he were to lose this tournament match, he would retire from pro wrestling. That didn’t happen, as Rhodes pinned Sabian with a Canadian destroyer after Brandi Rhodes took out Penelope Ford with a spear.

Both semifinal matches, which are set for next week, will feature Allin taking on Cody and Lance Archer facing Dustin Rhodes. The winners of these two matches will face each other in the finals at Double or Nothing on May 23. The winner will become the first AEW TNT champion.
