History has been made! Titles are the things that make the wrestling world go around. There are all kinds of titles floating around in the major companies today, but AEW has a bit of a different feeling with only four active titles all around. That can make for some interesting moments when the company takes its time and that was the case on Saturday night.
Double Or Nothing 2020 was an important show for AEW as it marked only their fifth traditional pay per view. That isn’t very many given that this was also their unofficial anniversary show, meaning that they don’t have the biggest track record with major shows. They stacked the card with three title matches though and as usual, they made the most of them.
On Saturday night at AEW Double Or Nothing, three titles were decided, including the inaugural TNT Title. First up, Cody defeated Lance Archer to become the first ever TNT Champion. Mike Tyson presented Cody with the title, though it was not complete yet due to the Coronavirus slowing the work down. Next, Hikaru Shida defeated Nyla Rose to become the third ever AEW Women’s Champion. Finally, Jon Moxley successfully defended the AEW World Title against Brodie Lee, reclaiming the physical title that Lee had stolen.
This was a pretty major event. Check out all the fallout:
Opinion: AEW hasn’t been around for very long but they are doing a great job of making their titles feel important. The titles are not defended very often and when one of them finally changes hands, it feels like a big deal. That is something they can be proud of as a lot of companies have an annoying tendency to hot shot title reigns when things are going slowly. It is a good idea to take your time like this and AEW is going it well so far.
