Miro claimed himself to be “God’s favorite champion” before unveiling the new design, and we can see a tinge of green color on the center part of the plate which signifies his Bulgarian heritage.

“The Best Man” won his first championship at AEW by defeated then TNT champion Darby Allin on an edition of AEW’s Dynamite two months back. Miro dominated the match before the bell rang, Allin threw everything he had in his arsenal.

Eventually, the referee called for the bell when he saw Miro locked Allin in his Game Over submission, bending his back in an unnatural position.

History of TNT Championship

The championship was first introduced at Double or Nothing 2020, back then it was unfinished because of the delay in production because of the ongoing pandemic COVID-19.

The TNT Championship has seen several redesigns over its brief lifespan ever since it debuted back in 2020.

The biggest change to the title is the most recent one which Miro debuted on the latest edition of AEW Dynamite. The bright white strap and the gold plate in the middle closely resembles the previous version of WWE’s Intercontinental Championship, which ironically enough was introduced by Cody Rhodes.
