Title changes hands on Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite

Powerhouse Hobbs is the new AEW TNT Champion.

Hobbs defeated Wardlow to win the title for the first time on Wednesday’s Dynamite in a falls count anywhere last man standing match.

Below is an excerpt from Alex Kahrs’ Dynamite recap of how it all went down.

Wardlow sets up Hobbs here, hitting a powerbomb onto the ramp…but is feeling a bit of pain himself as Hobbs gets a count from the ref. Wardlow brings him back to his feet, bringing him toward the commentary booth before setting up for the Powerbomb Symphony…only for QT Marshall to lash out with a steel chair shot! Marshall has a big grin on his face as he helps Hobbs to his feet, telling Hobbs to that it’s his time before they lift the champ up to send him onto a platform off the stage!

The ref starts the count, and with Wardlow unable to stand from being in a hole on the platform he is counted out giving Hobbs the win and the TNT Championship!

Marshall and Hobbs celebrate as Wardlow is still struggling to get out of the hole he’s in, but our focus is on a NEW champion in Powerhouse Hobbs and the replay of what went down, with the new champ standing tall to bring the show to a close.

Wardlow had just won the TNT Championship this past Sunday at AEW Revolution, when he defeated Samoa Joe. On last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Hobbs won the Face of the Revolution ladder match, earning the TNT Championship match this week.
