It was announced on AEW Dynamite last night that Cody will challenge Mr. Brodie Lee in a Dog Collar Match for the AEW TNT Championship on next week’s edition of the show.
This will be the rematch from their first championship clash.
After being challenged to a Dog Collar Match by the leader of The Dark Order, the former AEW TNT Champion gave his first promo since his return last week and told Dasha Fuentes:
“No. No as in no regrets.”
He then accepted the challenge before both champion and challenger engaged in a thrilling pull-apart brawl which required the AEW locker room to seperate them.
During the brawl, Brandi Rhodes made her presence known with a dive from the top rope onto The Dark Order, before she too became embroiled in a pull-apart spot with Anna Jay.
Cody vs. Mr. Brodie Lee has been the main mid-card rivalry in AEW ever since ‘The Exalted One’ defeated the Rhodes family member for the AEW TNT Championship in short and shocking fashion. Following that match, Lee and his Dark Order attacked Cody – who was tethered to a stretcher at the time – and the entire Nightmare Family, even having Anna Jay choke out Brandi who shielded her husband’s fallen and broken body.
The real reason for the attack on Cody post-championship loss was so the AEW Superstar could take some time away from the brand to film another show for TNT.
