Cody defended the AEW TNT Title against Darby Allin at Full Gear. During the pre-match introductions, Justin Roberts really put everything he had into Cody’s. Then he announced the American Nightmare as “Cody Rhodes.”

Saying “Cody Rhodes” on AEW television got a big pop out of the Daily’s Place crowd. Jim Ross also called attention to the fact that they dropped Cody’s last name on AEW. We’ll have to see if he continues using it, but “Cody Rhodes” is back.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
