Powerhouse Hobbs dethroned Wardlow to capture the AEW TNT Championship this week on AEW Dynamite.
Fightful Select is reporting that AEW has been planning to have Hobbs win the TNT Title around this time for months.
The title victory on Wednesday night was said to be the endgame of a big push planned for Hobbs. The TNT Championship is the first for Hobbs in his AEW career.
Furthermore, internal rumors suggest that AEW may potentially add more content in the coming months. However, the top stars in the company have not been briefed about this yet.
