AEW Dynamite Preview (12/11/2019) Cody Rhodes & QT Marshall vs. The Butcher & The Blade
Jordan Huie of the Overtimer here, and I’ve said it plenty of times today but I really, really do love Wednesdays… atleast I sure have since October! The next chapter in the Wednesday Night Wars is soon to be written, everybody! Just about half an hour away from showtime here! And here I am, still having two more bouts left to preview for tonight’s iteration of AEW Dynamite!
I shan’t be wasting any more time, let’s get to this!
Cody Rhodes & QT Marshall vs. The Butcher & The Blade
This match of course originates from when the Butcher, the Blade and the Bunny emerged from under the ring to gang up on Cody Rhodes. Unfortunately for him, he found that all of his closest allies were preoccupied and were not able to come to his aid. So the next week, in addition to making several offers at MJF for what he’d do to get a match with him, he also mentioned that he’d face the Butcher and the Blade anytime and even let them pick his partner for the match.
Later that night on social media, MJF made a video response explaining that it was he who hired the grim tandem to take Cody out. And he decided that he should be the one to pick the partner as well, which is how he ended up being paired with QT Marshall. For those unaware of who that is, he’s more known as one of AEW’s lead backstage hands. Often appearing on BTE and the Road To videos munching on apples, he’s also a veteran wrestler who recently made a pretty big comeback, fighting his way back from serious injury that seemed sure to retire him.
He’s appeared in a couple of matches with AEW thus far, but both times he was paired with very weak partners who ended up being pinned. Tonight, he’s got a much better partner to his name than Peter Avalon, Alex Reynolds or John Silver to say the least! But that’s not really the story. He’s meant to be the weak partner this go-round, and considering the hype the Butcher and the Blade are coming in with, I’ve gotta think he’s here to eat the fall. Butcher and the Blade over.
