[2020-02-19-AEW-Dynamite] Cody Rhodes vs Wardlow (Cage)

Recommended Posts

A very fun angle-driven match. Wardlow is solid ragdolling Cody around, but Cody definitely is the star of the match w/ that babyface magic. Some very, very good looking PUNCHES by him, and that match-ending Moonsault sure was SOMETHING, as well. ***1/4

This was a awesome spectacle that achieved two of its major goals: get more heat on the Cody/MJF fued and hide the limitations of Wardlow. This match is also a great example of why Cody has become one of the best big match performers today. He does what he knows best and what he grew up watching, old school territory storytelling that bring great emotion reactions from the crowds. While limited Wardlow held up his part by looking menacing and displaying good power moves, it also did hurt that Cody bled like crazy and having him kick out of the crossrhodes to get him over. The finish was fantastic with Cody tapping into his inner Kurt Angle with the moonsalut off the cage, again a awesome spectacle.
