Darby Allin Wins TNT Title On 1/4 AEW Dynamite

Darby Allin rang in the new year with a huge win and a new title, taking down Samoa Joe in a shocking win to become the newest TNT Champion.

In a tough match between both superstars, Allin came ready to perform, and so did Joe. The two put on a back-and-forth battle for the fans, with Joe nearly coming away with a win early thanks to some huge attacks. However, Allin would eventually rally, and after escaping the Coquina Clutch late and getting locked in a chokehold, he ended things by hitting the Code Red and two Coffin Drops for the win.

For a full recap of how the match ended, check out below:

Allin hugs Nick Wayne at ringside. Joe grabs Wayne by the throat during his entrance, prompting Allin to take the fight to the champion. They brawl up to the stage. Allin dives off a ladder onto Joe and seemingly hurts his knee. The match briefly winds up in the ring before Joe and Allin head back outside. Joe slams Allin onto the steel steps. The champion grounds Allin, who can barely walk once he gets some breathing room. Allin briefly rallies, but Joe continues to viciously target Allin’s leg. Joe hits a double knee breaker, and Allin is clearly in agony. Allin counters a Muscle Buster and gets a two count with a pin attempt. The champion goes for the Coquina Clutch. Allin escapes, but Joe traps him in a chokehold. Allin hits a Code Red and nails the Coffin Drop. He hits another Coffin Drop for the win.

Winner: Darby Allin
