All Elite Wrestling Executive Vice President and Chief Brand Officer Cody and Brandi Rhodes delighted in ramping up already gigantic expectations ahead of Double or Nothing.
"I feel like if you’re not satisfied at the end of Double Or Nothing, you’re not a wrestling fan," said Brandi during the press rounds, in quite the flex.
"On Saturday, there is the chance that you might see the greatest World Championship Title that has ever been created," Cody told Chris Van VlietofWSVN-TV, in a pointed statement. He booked himself to win the Ten Pounds of Gold at ALL IN. His love of JCP and the NWA borders on the obsessive, and he all but promised a better-looking title than even his precious.
Radiating a level of giddy confidence that exceeded even the promotion's all-out assault of a mission statement - AEW is going to be the best and most meaningful wrestling promotion out there, ran the press release - looking up at cloud nine, some dissenting fans felt looked down at. Cody said, losing himself in his Evening With host duties, that Bayley only pretends to be nice. That "no thought" went into the WWE 24/7 Championship poor Mick Foley had to introduce on Monday's RAW. "What the f*ck was he holding?"
The contrarian mutants of Wrestling Twitter were ready to pounce at the slightest misstep on the night.
If you're going to talk sh*t, you gotta back it up.
