Cody Rhodes and Andrade El Idolo went to war in the main event of the December 1, 2021 episode of AEW Dynamite, when they took part in a Street Fight against each other.
The finish of the match saw Rhodes his Andrade with a Top Rope Reverse Suplex through a flaming table that had been set up by a returning Brandi Rhodes.
Cody took the brunt of the heat despite him executing the move, and ended up scoring the victory. Cody recently spoke with Connor Casey of ComicBook.com, where he reflected on the big spot.
“I’m going to try and keep my language somewhat clean, but (that was) maybe the dumbest thing I’ve ever done But man, it was cool. Dumb, but also what a good image, in terms of just that’s how we do Dynamite. That specific incident wasn’t so much about topping myself, I just hate in wrestling when you’ll hear, “Oh, it’s a street fight. It’s a Tupelo Falls Count Anywhere match or whatever,” and then it’s just Basic Betty, it’s checking boxes versus actually taking that level of danger into account. And that’s what I wanted to do. I wanted to make sure people know that, if there’s a Street Fight on AEW, it’s a Street Fight. It’s going to leave you with a lasting memory and, ultimately, I think we did that,”
Cody would use his momentum from this win to challenge and ultimately dethrone then-TNT Champion Sammy Guevara on the Christmas Day edition of AEW Rampage.
Rhodes and Guevara are set for a rematch at tomorrow night’s (January 8) Battle of the Belts special event, but the match may no longer be happening, as AEW has reportedly had to change one of the announced matches.
