On last night’s episode of AEW Dynamite, former TNT Champion Cody regained the title from Mr. Brodie Lee in a brutal dog collar match.
The bout was set up after Cody’s surprise return on last week’s episode and it delivered on the pre-match promotion of it being a bloody, personal bout.
During the match, neither men held anything back and both were bleeding by the midway point. A number of The Dark Order members also attempted to get involved and John Silver was himself busted open for his trouble.
The finish came when Cody hit his opponent with a second Cross Rhodes to take back the title he lost last month in a shock squash match.
After the match, the AEW VP cut an impassioned promo to thank the fans for their backing and lay out a challenge for the anniversary edition of Dynamite next week. This challenge was answered, in his own wordless fashion, by Orange Cassidy. The match will be highly anticipated by fans of both men and joins the already announced Jon Moxley vs Lance Archer match, as well as a tag title match between FTR and Best Friends, on an utterly stacked special edition of Dynamite.
