I do agree with JR, Cody really needs this. But I dont think this was the right choice. I guess I am coming around to the idea a little bit though.

I really hope Cody does well, for his sake. Because some fans already say he isn't worthy of this spot and that all his matches are average, and a disappointing match in the US with Okada could really turn people against him.

Guess we are just going to have to wait and see. I can see it being a match full of interference to protect Cody and not have him too exposed.

Will be more than impressed if Okada can drag Cody to a 4 star match

I mean yeah I can see why they're doing this and the story makes sense. It just isn't exciting coz Rhodes hasn't done anything that interesting in NJPW or the rest of the Indies for that matter. If he doesn't impress much here or at the G1, Gedo probably won't do much with him.

JR licking the WWE balls again.

NJPW should fire him tbh.

Well, he did carry Bad Luck Fale to a 4 star match...twice before. So at least that's promising.

There was a thread that was created recently on if Okada is really having the best Championship title reign ever. If he can get a great match or higher out of Cody, then Okada will be in serious consideration.

Callis and Kelly were both pretty bad during Omega/Okada II. Talking about Meltzer and 6 stars live on air during a PPV wtf

I really hope they can get Mauro to call some future shows. I honestly wouldn't mind someone like Mike Tenay or Matt Striker either.

Considering how far he carried that bum Omega, he and Cody should tear it down no problem.

Considering this is all Striker would've done, keep Striker away from NJPW til the end of time.
