Cody Rhodes had a major announcement to make on AEW Dynamite and he didn’t disappoint as he revealed the impending debut of Brock Anderson, son of WWE Hall Of Famer and Head Coach of the Nightmare Family, Arn Anderson.
On Dynamite, Tony Schiavone introduced the trio to the ring as well as disclosing that Rhodes and the young Anderson will team up on another edition of Friday Night Dynamite to take on The Factory’s QT Marshall and Aaron Solow. The Factory is riding high after Marshall and Olympic boxer Anthony Ogogo managed to defeat Rhodes and ‘Big Shotty’ Lee Johnson on the previous week’s Dynamite.
After Rhodes talked up Brock Anderson, the two second-generation stars were interrupted by a perturbed Marshall. Cody’s former apple-munching assistant then challenged Rhodes to a South Beach Strap Match on Dynamite on July 7th emanating from Miami, Florida. This will be AEW’s first venture outside of Daily’s Place since they made the Jacksonville arena their home for the pandemic.
Rhodes accepted Marshall’s challenge before taking his belt off and saying he wanted the strap match there and then. Marshall begged off before sneaking into the ring with his own belt and whipping ‘Double A’ Arn Anderson. In turn, Brock took Marshall down and reigned punches down on him in retribution for his Four Horseman father.
The next generation of the Anderson Family makes his debut next week on #AEWDynamite when @CodyRhodes teams with the son of the #Enforcer@TheArnShow, #BrockAnderson against @realmmarshall1 & @aaronsolow

23-year-old Brock Anderson played football as a linebacker in high school, graduating from Province High School, Charlotte, North Carolina in 2015. Anderson becomes the latest child of one of the legendary Four Horseman to enter the wrestling business. The Pinnacle’s Tully Blanchard is the father to former IMPACT Wrestling World Champion Tessa Blanchard. Of course, Ric Flair’s daughter needs no introduction as ‘The Queen’ Charlotte Flair has dominated the women’s division of WWE since she was called up to the main roster of the company in 2015. Although joining the group later than the originals Brian Pillman also called himself a Four Horseman in WCW. His son Brian Pillman Jr. who recently won acclaim for his appearance in the Dark Side Of The Ring episode about his father’s life also competes as one half of The Varsity Blonds in AEW.
