Cody Rhodes Promo 

Dasha Gonzalez: Well, Cody, you heard from everyone here at AEW, welcome back. Now, your injury has been a bit of a mystery, so I have to ask, how are you doing?

Cody Rhodes: The man who trained me, Al Snow, I remember he said, you’ll always wrestle hurt, never wrestle injured. And had I known then what I know now, I would have offered this retort, what if the injury transcends the physical, what if the breaking of the body is secondary to the spirit, what if it’s in here. You’re a wrestler yourself, a pretty good one, right? So you know that pre-pandemic, all of us just shook hands ad nauseam. Wrestlers, there’s a particular quirk backstage in wrestling locker rooms, is that we shake hands over and over again. And often it is incorrectly chalked up as respect. That’s not why we shake hands.

The reason we shake hands is because we need each other. The marquee for example, the marquee has two names on it, it is you versus somebody else, so imagine my shame when I lose the TNT Title in three minutes. And then I get the call, the call all wrestlers pray for, but pretend we don’t, that 323 area code. It’s a Hollywood Call. It’s an opportunity and I jump at it. And I find myself sitting on another show, and i’m sitting next to a world renowned actress in Rosario Dawson. Two seats down, from a pioneer in the rap game, and a piece of Americana, Snoop Dogg. And right at the end, grammy award winning songstress, the beautiful Jennifer Nettles. And I’m asking myself, who the hell am I? I’m the guy who got beat in three minutes.

Dasha Gonzalez: But, Cody, you’re back now, you’re back on your feet.

Cody Rhodes: Yeah, my feet are planted firmly in the ground. And while I was gone, my ear was as well. And I hear that same traditional pro wrestling promo, pontification, people talking about being the future, there’s even people talking about being the ace, come on, don’t make me laugh, that ship has sailed. Dynamite is already a year old. And i’d love to punch that in further and say that that honored distinction belongs to me, but it doesn’t. That can only belong to one of three people. The Full Metal Champ, Hikaru Shida. The Worlds Champion, the best wrestler in the world for the last 207 days, Jon Moxley or the man carrying The Ace Belt himself, Brodie Lee.

Dasha Gonzalez: Now, speaking of Mr. Brodie Lee, do you accept his challenge for a Dog Collar Match?

Cody Rhodes: Well, that’s simple. The optics in wrestling are incredibly important. The optics of a match that unsafe, that bloody, that violent, as The Executive Vice President of this company, a title I am so damn proud to have, my answer is no. No as in no regrets, no as in no looking back, we enter much different than we leave. TNT Title, Dog Collar Match, Next Week, I accept.

– This segment concludes with a massive pull apart brawl with Cody Rhodes, Brandi Rhodes, Brodie Lee, and Anna Jay.
