On January 8, 2022, All Elite Wrestling is honoring its roots in the Turner family networks. The campaign will feature a one-hour special show called “Battle of the Belts.” This is a tribute to the classic WCW Clash of the Champions, which was shown on TBS many years ago. In it, the son of WCW legend Dusty Rhodes was also involved in many clashes.
The show will air on TNT, but the goal is the same. AEW often hosts special television events because they are only paid once a quarter. This will be their first independent TV show not called Dynamite or Rampage.
Without the championship games, this “Battle of the Belts” will not happen. the company has already announced that Riho will compete for Britt Baker at the Women’s World Championships. According to AEW’s Twitter post, the show’s second title game will be a rematch. Cody Rhodes will defend his new TNT championship against Sammy Guevara.
“After #CodyRhodes turned @sammyguevara into a Christmas night against 3-time TNT champion, the #Spanish God made a New Year’s decision to regain the title. This Saturday at 20:00 ET / 19:00 live on TNT, the first fight, the rematch: TNT champion Cody Rhodes will defend Sammy Guevara! ”
Cody’s championship victory was not received very warmly by AEW fans. He said recently that no one will see what happens until his current story. Meeting can have a big impact on his character.
More games could be announced on AEW TV this week. The only champions left without a game are World Champion Hangman Adam Page and team champions Lucha Bros.
The first TBS champion will be determined on January 5 at Dynamite when Jade Cargill clashed with Ruby Soho. Time will tell what Tony Khan plans for the rest of the Battle of the Belts card.
