Lance Archer is set to challenge Miro for the AEW TNT Championship this Sunday at AEW Double or Nothing.
Archer competed against Cody Rhodes in the finals to crown the first-ever AEW TNT Champion and has seen the title grow over the last year with Cody, Brodie Lee, Darby Allin, and now Miro holding the strap.
Appearing on The Rob Brown Show, Archer discussed the importance of the TNT Championship.
"It isn't a secondary title by any means. It's on the same level as the AEW Championship. Right now, Kenny Omega is the champion and he's been very selective on who he fights. That's how the AEW Championship has gone. The TNT Title has been seen many more times. Cody defended it on a weekly basis. Darby, once he got into the groove, he fought and defended it multiple times on TNT. That's what makes it important in its own realm. There isn't one that is better than the other, they just have different ways of going about things. Omega has been selective and has had an ongoing battle with Moxley and now has a triple threat with Orange Cassidy and PAC. The TNT Title has been defended against so many guys. One of the best champions the company ever had was the late, great Brodie Lee. Cody defended it honorably for a long time against so many guys. He got lucky when he beat me, we were the inaugural fighters for the title. Darby Allin defended it as he did and then Miro taking it as he did and making a statement. When Miro and I fight, we're going to give fans that monster fight that I don't know has happened in AEW," he said.
Miro won the AEW TNT Title on the May 12 episode of AEW Dynamite by defeating Allin the main event of the program. He was confronted by Archer following his victory.
