Shawn Spears sent a very big message at Fyter Fest when he showed up even though he wasn’t booked for the show. He waffled Cody Rhodes with a brutal unprotected chair shot that busted Cody open in a big way.
To mock his former friend, Shawn Spears used Cody’s own words against him as he tweeted out a clip of Cody saying: “He’s a good hand” while talking about Spears. Cody spoke those words after the initial debut package for Spears was played announcing he had signed with AEW.
This was a pretty violent moment in AEW’s short history. At this point, each of Cody Rhodes’ contests in AEW have involved a lot of blood in one way or another. This time, it was his.
