Cody Rhodes took on Peter Avalon on Dynamite in recent memory, and that match wasn’t a one-sided contest as many thought it would be. Avalon got a lot more offense in than anyone would have guessed. This caused a problem for the American Nightmare.
During AEW Dynamite this week, Cody Rhodes made mention to getting chewed out for going so long against Peter Avalon. During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said that this was not just part of the show. A lot of people wanted to get Cody’s ear after that match.
“I’ll be you JR chewed him out. Do you know how many people wanted to chew him out after that match? Oh my god.”
Cody Rhodes tries to put over anyone he steps in the ring with, event if they are losing to him. It seems that he made too grand of an effort with Pretty Peter Avalon.
