History has been made! There are a lot of titles in the wrestling world and some of them are a bit more unique than others. It can be interesting to see what kinds of titles a promotion comes up with, as you can find some rather unconventional ideas. That was kind of the case this weekend, as a new title was introduced with an idea stemming from mixed martial arts.
This weekend, AEW presented its first ever Battle of the Belts special. The show was focused on title matches and was originally scheduled to include a TNT Title match between Cody Rhodes and Sammy Guevara. However, Rhodes was forced out of the match due to Coronavirus issues. As a result, Guevara faced Cody’s brother Dustin Rhodes in a match for the Interim TNT Title. Guevara defeated Dustin, setting up a future match with Cody to unify the titles.
It was a busy night. Check out the two in action, plus what Cody could have added:
Opinion: I’m not sure how much of a surprise this was, but it was about all AEW could do in the situation. At the end of the day, Cody wasn’t able to be there and they needed something to fill in the gap. Making up an interim title that will only be around for a few weeks at most (in theory) is a fine way to go until Cody is back on his feet. Throw in the match being good and that’s about all you can ask for out of the whole thing.
What did you think of the match? How will the unification match go? Let us know in the comments below.
