Mr. Brodie Lee Wins AEW TNT Championship From Cody Rhodes

But that was only the beginning...

After eight successful defenses of the AEW TNT championship, Cody Rhodes' title reign reached the end of its line, in surprisingly one-sided fashion.

Mr. Brodie Lee defeated Cody in just three minutes on the special Saturday night Dynamite to win the title, after utilizing several powerbombs, before finishing with his trademark discus lariat.

The real story came after the match, when an injured Rhodes was loaded onto a stretcher. As the tending medics and Arn Anderson went to take Rhodes away, they were confronted by Lee and The Dark Order. Anderson was then attacked by the underlings, and quickly overwhelmed.

Cody was tipped off of the stretcher by Lee on the entrance stage. Lee also struck Cody over the head with a black bag, the contents of which were revealed to be the smashed up plates of the "unfinished" TNT title belt.

Other Dark Order members brought out the unconscious bodies of Nightmare Family members Dustin Rhodes and QT Marshall and threw them down in Cody's vicinity. When Brandi Rhodes tried to shield Cody from a further attack, Dark Order member Anna Jay seized her with a rear naked choke, and choked her unconscious.

The show ended with the Dark Order standing tall over the fallen Nightmare Family.
