Re: Has Cody FINALLY Silenced The Naysayers?

He was always good, the problem I have with him in AEW is that he seems to position himself above everyone . I mean, apart from Jericho, he's the one who's gotten a ton of promo time and always gets a special entrance every time he shows up lol. It's a bad look in comparison to the rest of the roster.

Because he's the most over guy on the roster. When you have that kind of reaction you go all the way with it.

Re: Has Cody FINALLY Silenced The Naysayers?

Jury is still out. He storylines himself into very storyline based matches - vs Dustin, vs Spears, vs Jericho now and likely The Match Beyond next PPV. Not saying it's a bad thing to have emotion and drama built into matches, but he is in the position to make sure his matches always have a lot of added storyline weight behind them because his match quality is too old school to follow Bucks or Fenix etc.

I mean after his Dustin and Spears feuds - where are Dustin and Spears? It's like the old Hulkamania booking where you'd build up a epic threat to Hogan, only to have Hogan vanquish them and move on to his next "biggest threat in his career" while the vanquished threat drops down to mid card feuds.

He did help mint Darby Allin though.

Cody does have ready and waiting money feuds with Moxley, Omega, Hangman and PAC I believe.

AEW Roster = Kevin Smith movie casting

Re: Has Cody FINALLY Silenced The Naysayers?

Honestly, Cody is probably my pick for Superstar of the Year.

1) Had my pick for Match of the Year (Vs. Dustin at Double or Nothing)
2) Had great feuds and programs (w/Jericho and Spears)
3) Generally has really good and exciting matches when he does perform (Vs. Guevara on 1st Dynamite, Vs. Darby Allin at FFTF)
4) Cuts amazing promos (last night)
5) Knows how to sell emotion and drama to make his matches matter.
6) Oh and he helped start a wrestling company, got on TNT, and basically helped to make wrestling fun again.

Cody is doing the damn thing. That promo was top notch and all his other segments have been great. He really knows how to work the crowd, they love him.

I don't mind him being in the main stuff either. It's a new company, they're still trying to get new fans and viewers. The best way to do that is put your biggest names in the spotlight. Cody, Jericho, Mox, Omega. As a new company it would be dumb not to have any of those guys front and center.

I've always loved Cody and knew he had greatness in him. I'm happy that it's being recognized. It took some time but he has fully realized all the potential the WWE took for granted.

Now you're just making excuses because its AEW. I mean hell, not even HHH does this lol. I'm all for special entrances.... when its a special occasion like Wrestle Kingdom, Starcade or Wrestlemania . But he's had a special entrance virtually every show, which includes their tv , I mean they literally move out a chunk of the set for him to enter the arena in. Could you imagine if Shawn Micahels did his Wrestlemania 12 entrance on a random RAW in November? lol

>B-But excuses!
Stop it. When you have that kind of connection with your audience and you are a god to them you can get away with it. HHH only had this kind of connection when he returned at MSG. Apples and oranges.

How dare AEW push the red hot babyface.

If you'll notice, Mox gets the hot entrances as well. But he's a different character, so his style is 'coming out through the crowd'.

Cody's entrance fits his character. Good lord, what is wrong with some people.

Re: Has Cody FINALLY Silenced The Naysayers?

I guess it shouldnít come as a surprise to anyone as he was always good in every gimmick change he had in WWE. He was just never seriously pushed as a main eventer. Well he is now and heís succeeding. I canít understand anyone hating the guy right now. Since he left WWE heís done nothing but proved his worth. He bet on himself and itís paid off. If anything wrestling needs more people like him.
