All Elite Wrestling TNT Champion Cody finally unveiled his completed belt ahead of last night's episode of Dynamite, showing off the shiny gold strap in a video uploaded to the promotion's social media platforms.
Here's how it looks:-
Cody had confirmed the new-look strap would be revealed yesterday ahead of time, though it was expected that 'The American Nightmare' would wait for Dynamite. Instead, this video allowed fans to get a closer look at the completed design before Cody hit the ring, successfully defending the TNT Title against Scorpio Sky.
The TNT Championship was unveiled to mass derision at Double Or Nothing in May. AEW's announcers revealed that the strap was incomplete due to the manufacturer shutting down during the ongoing global health crisis, with gold plating to be added at a later date. Now, that's in place, and the prize looks a lot better for it. This is a considerable upgrade.
Mr. Brodie Lee took possession of the old TNT strap during last night's Dynamite, challenging Cody for next Saturday's reschedule episode, claiming 'The American Nightmare' could have the original belt back once he defeated him for the new one.
