FMKK Posted July 1, 2019 Report Share Posted July 1, 2019 For the second show in a row I think Cody had the match of the night. The storytelling, with him being more powerful than Allen but unable to put him away, was done well and I enjoyed the extra touch of the hand injury to Cody which allowed for the odds to be evened. That apron bump was absolutely sadistic and the bodybag bit was a cool visual. The draw was a good way to put over the resilience of Darby while still being clear that Cody is ahead of him in the hierarchy. There's definitely enough there that they could go back to this and have something of a programme in future. The ethical issues with the following angle have been discussed to death but taking that out of it, it was very effective in achieving what it was supposed to. Spears looks sick and they're set to have a personal rivalry. Cody is 2/2 for strong matches in AEW and I expect another with some strong videos to flesh out the angle. I wouldn't necessarily have had MJF out as part of the crew helping him to the back though. 4* Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
