That means a live recap and results from the show as they come, plus, previews of everything on tap tonight!
Cody vs. Ortiz
Last week, a match between Jake Hager and QT Marshall spilled out into a massive brawl between the Elite and the Inner Circle. With Nick Jackson and Kenny Omega out of action that night, the Elite were a little short-handed but still managed to fend them off. However this did not come before Ortiz laid out Cody with a massive chair shot to the back! That moment led to this. In his first match since the hard loss to MJF at Revolution, Cody now faces one half of Proud-N-Powerful tonight!
Ortiz is generally thought of as the wacky character of the tandem, whereas Santana is the more solid worker. Both of them are standouts however, and they do make for an excellent team. But of course there’s only ever been a handful of one-on-one appearances for the two of them. Suffice to say, Ortiz is a pretty major underdog going into this match and for good reason. Cody is still considered by many to be the face of AEW in spite of his major setbacks and his lack of ability to ever challenge for the world title. After all, he’s thunderously popular, and looked at as the EVP with the most know how on running a company, thanks to growing up watching his father Dusty Rhodes do much the same.
This is, as mentioned above, a preview bout for what’s to come in a couple of weeks, when the Elite and the Inner Circle face off in the brutal, violent, bloody double cage match that for years was known to the world as WarGames but in AEW will be known as the Blood and Guts match. Which side will win there is very much up in the air, but on this night, Cody will for sure take the victory.
