One of the championship matches at the Battle of the Belts special has been changed by All Elite Wrestling. The match that has been changed regards the TNT Championship.
Originally, Cody Rhodes was due to defend the TNT Championship against Sammy Guevara in a rematch from the Christmas Day episode of Rampage, in which Rhodes became a 3 time TNT Champion. However, as announced on the January 7th episode of Rampage, Cody has not been cleared to compete. Instead, Cody’s brother Dustin Rhodes will be facing Sammy Guevara at the event to crown an interim TNT Champion.
At the time of writing, it is unknown as to what has caused Cody to be pulled from the card, or how long The American Nightmare will be out for. It is expected that whoever wins the match between Dustin and Guevara will be facing Cody Rhodes at some point in the future to determine the true TNT Champion.
The current card for Battle of the Belts is as follows:
- Dustin Rhodes vs. Sammy Guevara – Singles match to determine an interim TNT Champion.
- Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D. vs. Riho – Singles match for the AEW Women’s Championship.
- Ricky Starks (c) vs. Matt Sydal – Singles match for the FTW Championship.
