Cody Rhodes challenged Chris Jericho for the AEW Championship at Full Gear on Saturday night and came up short.
The AEW executive vice president promised he would never challenge for the AEW title ever again if he lost and Jericho remains the only man to hold the company’s top gold thus far.
However, Rhodes very nearly never wrestled again full stop following one spot in the match.
Take a look at the video below as Cody Rhodes attempts to dive on Chris Jericho but eats nothing but the ramp:
As mentioned, Rhodes went on to lose the match and then his friend MJF proceeded to turn on him afterward.
That seems to be the next likely direction for Rhodes and he will take pride in putting MJF on the map. The company has huge hopes for MJF and he certainly needs a big feud.
The Full Gear show featured many violent moments, though, with Rhodes bleeding from his face following his dive gone wrong.
Kenny Omega and Jon Moxley would take things to another level in their match, particularly removing the padding from the ring.
