The American Nightmare Cody takes on Chris Jericho this weekend at Full Gear, but ahead of their hotly anticipated clash for the AEW World Championship, Cody delivered a passionate speech this week on Dynamite where he revealed that if he couldn’t defeat Jericho on Saturday then he wouldn’t compete for the title again.
As part of the promo, the former WWE Superstar talked about the similarities between himself and Chris Jericho, given the fact that they are both sons of famous sporting talents. He went on to state that both men had been raised with a silver spoon in their mouths, but their current feud isn’t about his father, it’s much more personal.
The promo has been likened to the one delivered by his father all those years ago entitled “Hard times” and has even been able to grab the attention of The Rock, who treated his praise to the number one contender to the AEW World Championship.
The passion is evident as Cody is almost brought to tears when talking about his family, which shows just how much these two men have put into this battle. Their brawl last week was likened to the old days in WCW since AEW currently airs on TNT, which was once WCW’s Network.
Cody saw the praise from perhaps one of the greatest promo deliverers in WWE history and tweeted to thank The Great One for his kind words.
This wasn’t the only action Cody saw this week on Dynamite since he decided to invade the main event match between “Hangman” Adam Page, Kenny Omega, Sammy Guevara and AEW World Champion Chris Jericho to send a message to the current Champion. This week’s episode then ended in a brawl which means that all eyes will definitely be on Full Gear this weekend.
