Last night on AEW: Dynamite, Executive Vice President Cody returned to action for the first time since losing to Chris Jericho in an AEW World Championship match at Full Gear.
Despite picking up the win in his return, it wasn’t Cody’s match that got people talking, but rather the post-match angle that followed.
After making light work of the enhancement talent, Cody cut a promo. However, he was interrupted by The Butcher and The Blade, a tag team on the independent scene.
This is the first time that we have seen The Butcher and The Blade, consisting of Pepper Parks and Andy Williams, in an All Elite Wrestling ring. The pair attacked Cody during his promo.

For those of you who might not have heard of Pepper Parks, he is better known for his work in TNA (now Impact Wrestling) as Braxton Sutter.
After attacking Cody, Parks and Williams pulled Allie up from under the ring. We have seen Allie in AEW before, but this is certainly the debut of a new character for the former Impact star.
Cody is currently feuding with MJF and Wardlow following MJF’s heel turn at Full Gear. It remains to be seen whether The Butcher and The Blade will join Wardlow in supporting MJF moving forward to feud with Cody.
