Cody Rhodes successfully defended his AEW TNT Championship against Scorpio Sky on this week's AEW Dynamite, but "The American Nightmare" wasn't given much time to celebrate. Alex Reynolds and John Silver of The Dark Order popped up on the big screen, followed by Brodie Lee holding the old version of the TNT title. Lee said that Rhodes needed to "pay for his transgressions," and now that he had successfully defeated the rest of The Elite he wants to take Rhodes' championship. He then threw down the challenge for a title match. AEW announced later in the night that Lee would get his match on the special Aug. 22 edition of Dynamite.
Rhodes was presented with the new version of the TNT title earlier this afternoon. Since winning the title at Double or Nothing, he has successfully defended it against Jungle Boy, Marq Quen, Ricky Starks, Jake Hager, Sonny Kiss, Eddie Kingston, Warhorse and now Sky.
