It was surely a heartbreaking night for Cody Rhodes after losing the TNT Championship to Darby Allin. Darby Allin won the AEW TNT Championship against Cody at tonight's AEW Full Gear via pinfall after hitting a coffin drop.
"Heartbreaking for me, but a special night for @DarbyAllin- the rookies aren’t rookies anymore. They are stars. You can be a loner, but now you’re a leader. Thank you @AEW and the fans here tonight and watching on PPV. It was an honor to be your champion," Cody Rhodes addressed his defeat against Darby.

After Cody wrestled Orange Cassidy to a time limit draw and retained the TNT Championship on the October 14 episode of Dynamite, it was announced that Darby Allin would challenge for the title at Full Gear.
Before Full Gear, Cody had a title rematch with Cassidy in a lumberjack match on the October 28 Dynamite, which Cody won, keeping him as the defending champion against Allin.
