At AEW Revolution, Cody Rhodes failed to earn another chance at the TNT Championship. This comes after a big loss to Shaq & Jade Cargill. He’ll likely get another chance to become TNT Champion in time, just based on the fact that well, he’s Cody Rhodes.
However, tonight he steps into the ring with an unknown name in Seth Gargis, to look to get a new winning streak started. Gargis is 0-2 in AEW, having appeared previously on AEW Dark.
Cody Rhodes Wastes No Time
Before the match, Rhodes went out to a special fan in attendance and gave them his weight belt for the night. Gargis like everyone else knows the shoulder of Rhodes is hurt after the ladder match on Sunday. Rhodes would have the arm attacked right away, but he shrugged it right off.
Gargis would be hit with a running powerslam and end up in the Figure Four Leg Lock. Rhodes gave Gargis nowhere to go, and forced the submission in the middle of the ring. Arn Anderson was pleased with this result, Rhodes didn’t waste a single second.
Penta El Zero Em Calls Out Rhodes
Tony Schiavone would join Rhodes & Anderson down in the ring for an interview, but had some issues with his microphone. Schiavone would ask about the hurt shoulder and how he was thrown around by Shaq last week. Before Rhodes could respond, Penta El Zero Em would reveal himself, having been on Spanish Commentary up to this point of the night.
He’d tell the crowd to shut up, before telling Rhodes that he’s a thousand times better than him. The Prince Of Pro Wrestling is a joke to the Lord Of Lucha Libre. He’d call out Rhodes for his “American Nightmare” name, and point out that he lost at Revolution, and even it was just him and Penta, he’d have still lost, potentially losing even more.
Rhodes was lucky that Penta didn’t focus on the arm even more at Revolution, because he could have made it impossible for Rhodes to even pick up his coming newborn. This fired Rhodes up, and he’d start a brawl with Penta and have to be restrained.
