That’s something. Every now and then, you will see a spot in wrestling that gets your attention in a big way. It might be anything from a big dive to a huge stunt, but it is something that gets people watching and then keeps them talking. That was the case this week and it seems to have been done for one of the more specific reasons you will ever hear.
The main event of this week’s edition of AEW Dynamite featured Cody Rhodes vs. Andrade El Idolo in a street fight. The end of the match saw Rhodes superplex El Idolo through a flaming table. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the idea of the finish was for Rhodes to be able to give his hometown a special moment. The previous time AEW was in Atlanta, Rhodes moonsaults off of the top of a cage to defeat Wardlow.
It was a crazy match. Check out some of Rhodes’ bigger moments:
Opinion: It was certainly a memorable moment but I’m not sure how many people are going to remember it for being in Atlanta. At the end of the day, it is nice to do something for the live crowd, but there are a lot more people on the there side of the camera. The spot didn’t look great, but I can live with Rhodes trying to do something different for a change.
What did you think of the spot? What is next for Rhodes? Let us know in the comments below.
