AEW New Year’s Smash Night 2 was highlighted by a TNT Championship match between current titleholder Darby Allin and challenger Brian Cage.

As one could expect from their physical appearances, Cage had a huge strength advantage over the champ. However, Allin showed a ton of heart and smartness as he tied Cage’s boots together. While that didn’t last, Allin was able to hit a Code Red for a near-fall.

The end finally came after Allin went for the Coffin Drop but Ricky Starks interfered. However, Sting suddenly appeared and he took out Starks to even the match up. Allin would then hit a Crucifix Bomb to retain the belt.
