There’s your history. Titles are often the most important part of a wrestling promotion as they are the way to determine the best wrestlers in the company. This might be by means of actual skill or through cheating, but winning a championship is one of the easiest ways to present a star. Now we are seeing a wrestler setting a record for holding a title, even if it has not been around very long.
Cody Rhodes won the TNT Title in the main event of this week’s AEW Rampage. Rhodes defeated Sammy Guevara to win the title for the third time, breaking his own record for the most reigns in the title’s history. This marks the first time that any AEW wrestler has held a title three times. The win ends Guevara’s reign at 87 days after he won the title from Miro on the September 29 Dynamite.
The title has been sought after since its introduction. Check out some of its better title matches:
Opinion: This was a weird situation as it was both a surprise and not a surprise. Rhodes getting the title back is something that has happened before, which is not exactly stunning, but Guevara felt like his title reign was just getting started when Rhodes took it away from him. I wonder where Rhodes is going as champion, as it could go in a bunch of different directions.
What did you think of the title change? How will Rhodes’ reign go? Let us know in the comments below.
