Tony Khan Thinks Frequent TNT Title Changes Was The Right Thing To Do

The right thing to do, Tony Khan believes

The TNT Championship has had a turbulent couple of months since March's Revolution pay-per-view.

Sammy Guevara was the champion following the show but he dropped the title to Scorpio Sky on the post-Revolution edition of Dynamite. The former AEW World Tag Team Champion didn't have the TNT belt for very long, though, and he lost the championship back to Guevara at Battle Of The Belts 37 days later. 

The title then changed hands again only 12 days later with Sky defeating The Spanish God in a Ladder Match on the April 27 episode of Dynamite to begin his second reign as TNT Champion. 

Speaking about the frequent title changes on Rasslin', AEW President Tony Khan noted that it was the right thing to do since Scorpio Sky's second title win was 'better' than his first. 

"It happens [titles constantly changing hands]. Like, I have to say, great example of this, Smoky Mountain Wrestling which was a great promotion. We're talking about 90s movies, 90s wrestling even so The Rock 'n' Roll Express and The Heavenly Bodies in a very - in four days. They went the same thing. It was The Rock 'n' Roll Express, Heavenly Bodies, Rock 'n' Roll Express, The Heavenly Bodies for the Smoky Mountain Tag Championship and I think, you know, you saw that. They had the Hospital Elimination Match," Khan said.

"We saw Sammy [Guevara] and [Scorpio] Sky, I thought Sammy and Sky, the Ladder Match was tremendous and I thought Sky's second championship win was better than the first win for him in many ways which is hard to do and to say, I think that meant it was the right thing to do."

Sky will defend the TNT Championship against former SCU faction-mate Frankie Kazarian on tonight's episode of Rampage. The match was taped earlier this week and you can find out who won here.
