Wardlow wins TNT Championship on AEW Dynamite

Wardlow is the new TNT Champion.

He defeated Scorpio Sky on tonight’s Dynamite in a street fight to win the TNT Championship for the first time. The finish came when Wardlow dispatched members of American Top Team out of the ring. Scorpio used this as a distraction, striking Wardlow with the TNT title for a nearfall. Wardlow kicked out and escaped a TKO attempt by Sky, hitting the Powerbomb Symphony for the eventual win.

Sky's run as TNT Champion ends after 70 days, defeating Sammy Guevara on the April 15 edition of Dynamite.

The match was set up on last week’s Dynamite, where Wardlow promised he would win the title, not caring about the stipulation or the potential for American Top Team to interfere.

In the weeks since beating MJF at Double or Nothing, Wardlow had been feuding with MJF’s lawyer Mark Sterling, which led to a 20-on-1 handicap match against Sterling’s plaintiffs. After Wardlow quickly took care of the plaintiffs, he made clear that his next target was the TNT Championship.
