Cody Rhodes makes his way to the ring as we head to a break.
Dasha interviews Cody in the ring and asks Cody how he is feeling and talks about a lesson he learned from Al Snow when he was training about never wrestling injured. He said that wrestlers, pre-pandemic, shook hands constantly and it was always believed that it was for respect, but he said it’s because wrestlers need each other. Cody talks about the shame he felt from losing the TNT Title in three minutes and then talks about working on the new TBS show he is going to be a part of.
Cody says he started asking himself who he was and says, “I’m the guy that got beat in three minutes.” Cody says that while he was gone heard the typical wrestling promos from people claiming to be the “future” and the “ace” of AEW. Cody says the only people with a claim to being the “ace” of AEW is the World Champion, the TNT Champion and the Women’s Champion.
Cody refuses the Dog Collar Match and says the optics of a match that bloody and violent, as Executive Vice President of AEW, he has to turn it down. Cody starts to walk away but comes back but says his “no” is actually “no regrets” and says it will go down next week!
Brodie Lee comes out and starts brawling with Cody as wrestlers and officials separate them. The Dark Order comes out and Brandi Rhodes ends up running out and hitting a Somersault Plancha over the top onto the Dark Order. Anna Jay attacks her from behind and they start brawling. Nyla Rose randomly pops another wrestler at ringside and they start brawling, too. Every time wrestlers separate Brodie and Cody they break away and start fighting again.
Tony Schiavone interviews FTR backstage and they say they did Best Friends a favor last week by not accepting their challenge because they’re just backyarders that aren’t ready for that. Cash says that SCU are a different story because they are world class athletes. Tony asks about The Young Bucks but Dax says every show they’ve had they blew it. “If it’s because Dave Meltzer loves them and throws them all the stars then yeah they deserve it,” Dax says of the Bucks getting a shot. Matt Jackson then kicks Tony in the face and walks away!
Dasha is with SCU and they say it’s time for them to get back their titles and they guarantee a win. As they walk away Shawn Spears stops and wishes them luck.
