One man that you should never go out of your way to annoy or anger, based on recent evidence, is Shawn Spears.
The man formerly known as Tye Dillinger has been on an absolute tear since leaving WWE, and now, he’s positioned himself perfectly in the landscape of All Elite Wrestling as he prepares to go head to head with former best friend Cody Rhodes next weekend.
Nobody really knows what to expect from this match in terms of the eventual winner, but one thing is for sure, it’s going to be one of the most hard-hitting encounters in the short history of AEW.
Shawn seems to be getting increasingly frustrated with the fans and media, as you can see here by his suggestion that Cody just isn’t ready to mix it up with him. Based on recent evidence, he might be right.
The match is one of many intriguing showdowns that will take place at All Out, on a card that includes Jon Moxley vs. Kenny Omega and Adam Page vs. Chris Jericho for the AEW World Championship. Those three bouts alone will surely be worth the price of admission in Chicago.
The festivities at Starrcast in the days leading up to the show should be pretty interesting, too, because you can just tell that Spears would love to make some noise when all eyes are on him.
Cody, on the other hand, seems to be more than willing to let his work in the ring do the talking in the lead-up to this one.
