Mathew’s Wrestling Quickies #2 Feat LAX VS Cage & Cobb

Published

on

Welcome back to my Wrestling Quickies.

The first time I did this about two weeks has been fairly positive since I got to talk about matches from other promotions that don’t really get covered on here and that’s what these quickies are all about. Plus, who doesn’t enjoy a good quickie from time to time? I found some matches from different promotions like the last time and maybe one of them making a comeback, but you will see some familiar faces.

So let’s just get right to it.

 

Three Way Match
Bandido vs. Flamita vs. Rey Fenix

Review: The match happened around August 2nd and AAA uploaded it a few days ago, so I figured it’ll be a good time to upload it. Both Flamita and Bandido were in my first quickie article when they fought each other in PROGRESS and that was an entertaining match, so why not bring them back but with an added person into this? So yes, we got a three-way match between these two and another big Luchador star and current AAA Mega Champion, Rey Fenix. Which of these of these three famous Luchadors will come out on top?

You do have wrestlers like Fenix, Bandido, Flamita, Pentagon, Drago, and Horus traveling all over the world to spread the word of Lucha Libre making a comeback and it’s been a while since they’ve been given that much spotlight everywhere since Rey Mysterio, but I’m glad that these five are helping to keep the spirit of the style alive wherever they go together. The match had a couple of slip-up’s but it’s expected due to the fast pacing of their nature and it doesn’t take away from the match at all. This is the type of match you would see in a Lucha Libre match and it’s the type you want to see as well when you look for these matches. It has energy, it has action, they’re quick, and they can carry the crowd over to make it fun. Fenix is one of the best in the indy scene right now next to Pentagon, especially together when they’re a tag team but both great individually as well and the same could be said for Flamita and Bandido. Flamita had Bandido on the turnbuckle and it looked like he was going to go for a Rana, but Fenix jumped off the ropes to hit a Super Hurricanrana on Flamita and he went over to Bandido to hit his Valagueza Con Desnucadora for the win. Very entertaining match and recommended if you love these guys or the Lucha style.

Singles Match
Go Shiozaki vs. Nanae Takahashi

Review: We go to Japan now with a Joshi promotion called SEAdLINNNG and we have an intergender match here as Nanae Takashi will be taking on NOAH star, Go Shiozaki. For intergender matches, I’m sometimes on the fence with them depending on how they play out since some of them are a hit and miss, but can be really special if done right like how when Tessa Blanchard fought Brian Cage earlier in the year at Wrestle Circus and if you haven’t seen that match, I recommend it. This match took place on their show called Endless Summer which took place on September 5th but aired September 28th, Japan and their long air dates for big shows. I haven’t seen too much of Nanae but from what I’ve seen, she’s someone worth watching and has 22 years of experience in the wrestling industry, and I don’t have to explain that about Go Shiozaki. Which one of them will take it?

This one was better than how I anticipated it to go and glad that it was the case here because this one is probably one of my favorite intergender matches. If I had to pick a complaint or two, I’ll address it now and get it out of the way and it was the same with Ice Ribbon where you have a corner of the screen covered by a couple of people on commentary or just two people watching with comments and it hurt the match a little since stuff couldn’t have happened there or the expression on their faces or certain moves would just be blocked because having that side screen is important for some reason. Another big complaint that really pissed me off was the cameraman who kept moving around and zooming in/out when he really didn’t need to, especially in the Suplex part when he aimed way too high and barely got them, someone fires him for the love of Christ.

Anyway, now that I got the bad stuff out of the way and I can now talk about the match. Nanae did exactly what she needed to do in this match and that used her technical ability and to try and outmaneuver him since she’s not stronger than Go and it’s the smart approach about it. Go would mostly just chop her around the arena and throw her around just to show that he was stronger than her and a better wrestler than her. Nanae would get some offense when she reversed a Suplex with one of her own and would even get a Sunset Flip in to try and to get the surprise victory but Go kicked out at two. Go would hit the Gowan Lariat and instead of covering her right then and there, he just hits one more stiff chop to pin her for the win. The ending confused me a bit because I would’ve just ended it with the Lariat instead of just another chop, but okay then. Still a great match with a good story and did what they needed to do it right.

Singles Match
Azusa Takigawa vs. Miyu Yamashita

Review: Our next match is from another Joshi company called TJP or Tokyo Joshi Pro and is apart of the DDT Universe streaming service, so if you don’t like DDT that much, you got other promotions there that you can check out like this one. The match happened on the September 22nd show and it was titled ‘How do you like Shin-Kiba?’ I love their event names, but our Princess of Princess Champion, Miyu Yamashita is set to take on Azusa in a non-title match in our main event. I’m very new to TJP and only watched one match involving Miyu and was very impressed with her and felt like she could be one of the top Joshi wrestlers in the upcoming years. Can the champion win or will Azusa win and become the next contender?

Match started off basic with trying to shoulder tackle each other down and Azusa would roll out of the ring and grabbed the microphone to give her a timeout and she also said some other stuff which I have no translation to since it’s not subtitled. She would go into the ring though and began to…sing a little song and even had Miyu chime in on it as her face accidentally hits the microphone but they laugh it off and Azusa swept her off her feet and tried to pin her for a two count. Once the little comedy spot happened in the match, it just turned into a regular wrestling match with was pretty solid with Miyu taking most of the control in the match and can see why she’s considered their ace of the company, she has a good look, balanced moveset, and can work a good match with more potential ready to be released into the wrestling scene. Azusa also managed herself pretty well in the match and can also see her being a bigger star and not bad for only wrestling for three years. Miyu would hit an Attitude Adjustment onto Azusa to try and put her away but Azusa would barely kick out of it and she wasted no time by hitting a running knee that I believe she calls the Crash Rabbit Heat, but I could be wrong and she gets the victory over Azusa.

Tag Team Match
LAX vs. Brian Cage & Jeff Cobb

Review: Our next match is a tag team match that took place at Bar Wrestling. Bar Wrestling is a fairly new promotion that is founded by Joey Ryan and takes place in California. This took place on the September 12th show called Bar Wrestling 18: Victims, Aren’t We All! Our tag match for this one is between LAX members, Santana, and Ortiz as they take on the team of two of the biggest stars right now, Brian Cage and Jeff Cobb. This is sure to be a good one, but which one of them will win?

My God, both Cage and Cobb are incredibly strong, aren’t they? They would mostly throw around Santana like a rag doll for the majority of the match and one time, Cage had him up for a Stalling Suplex and both him and Cobb would tag each other in back and forth just holding him in the air for a good minute until Cobb was the one to deliver the Suplex on Santana. I would love to write about LAX more and how great they are as a tag team but they hardly showcased a whole lot into this match as it was mostly about Cobb and Brian, which is fine since they’re both strong individuals in this match that should overpower their opponents. Ortiz would be the hot tag of the match as they would hit their own variation of the Magic Killer, and it wouldn’t fully last long as Santana got tagged in and both Cage and Cobb would clean house with them once again. Cobb would slam Santana down which lead to Cage picking him up in a wheel barrel position to hit a Neckbreaker, then Cobb does a Sitout Powerbomb as it’s another two count. Cobb would have Santana on the top rope going for a Superplex, but Ortiz kicked Cage down and snuck up behind Cobb to have him in a Powerbomb position as Santana hits the Blockbuster on the way down and LAX gets the pinfall victory. This was a short and solid tag team match.

ROH World Title Match
Jay Lethal (c) vs. Will Ospreay

Review: You heard it right, I will be covering Ring of Honor in this article and the match I’ve chosen is the ROH World Championship match where Jay Lethal defends the title against Will Ospreay. The match took place over the weekend at Death Before Dishonor show and Will made his challenge to Lethal about a month ago and is considered the first time ever as well, so he wants to prove himself all over the world, including ROH. Jay Lethal is known to being a fighting champion and will gladly accept the challenge. Will Jay Lethal retain or will Ospreay win the title?

I know a lot of people know Will Ospreay for his flips and flashy moves, but I think some people do forget that he actually can wrestle a match without the need of those, like his match against Drew McIntyre last year where we saw a different style of Will and we had that exact same thing here in this match with Jay Lethal. I’m not the biggest fan of ROH after feeling like poor booking and declining quality just hurt the product over the years, but I will admit that they will sometimes give us something enjoyable like this match right here between Jay and Ospreay. Jay Lethal is still showing that he’s still one of the best ROH has to offer and better established that’s not a Bullet Club member.

The match was technical, it told a great story between the two, both of these men had equal chances to shine to make it fair and balanced with their styles and again, props to Will Ospreay for adapting his style a bit to give us this different type of match and show he can work with anyone with any different style, plus I probably wouldn’t have liked it as much if Will wrestled as he does with the other juniors and I think people expected that but glad it wasn’t the case here. I really enjoyed the last five minutes of the match since you can almost believe Will could’ve had a chance to win it all here. Will-powered out of the Lethal Injection and he went for the Oscutter as Lethal caught him with a Cutter of his own and Will kicked out at two. Will went to hit Jay with the title and he drops it to psyche him out with a kick to the leg as he hits the Oscutter for a two count as Will can’t believe it! Will would then have Jay up on the turnbuckle and as he went for a Super Rana, Lethal caught him in mid-air for the Sitout Powerbomb and he capitalizes with the Lethal Injection and pins Will to retain the title!

WRESTLE-1 Title Match
Manabu Soya (c) vs. Shotaro Ashino

Review: My ending surprise for this article will be from Wrestle-1. I would cover the show, but since I missed the past couple shows due to tournaments and it’s already October, I figured I would at least write about this match. This took place at Wrestle-1’s Pro-Wrestling LOVE in Yokohama, which was their big show that happened on September 2nd and last year on this show, Ashino and Jiro made it to my Top 25 matches of 2017 list. This year, Manabu Soya will defend his championship against former champion and winner of this year’s Grand Prix, Shotaro Ashino. These two fought in March for the championship where Manabu would defeat Ashino to win the title and less than six months later, Ashino won the Grand Prix and now gets his rematch for the title. Can Manabu retain once again or will Ashino reclaim what’s his?

I think the story of this math made the bout much better than their previous encounter in March, but both matches are great along with the rivalry. What I loved about the match more is Ashino and the intensity he brought into the match with his aggressive behavior and taking it out on Manabu for taking that title away from him and defeating Manabu and AKIRA for the Tag Team Titles a few months ago wasn’t enough as he wanted to take back what was his also. The build-up for the feud has been great and will probably be in one of my top feuds of the year just for the build-up and how their matches together went. Manabu did a great job taking Ashino to his limit as well since he’s also a great wrestler with a ton of passion and energy that again made the chemistry between the two great. Manabu would have Ashino right where he wants him to hit the Package Piledriver as Ashino kicked out of it, but Manabu would quickly get him back up to have him dazed enough to hits his Wild Bomber, the same move that made him win the title but Ashino still kicked out at two! Manabu would try to go for another one as Ashino caught him into a T-Bone Suplex for a two count, but he quickly turned it into the Ankle Lock and he has it locked in tight. Manabu was struggling out to get to the ropes and fight off the pain, but Ashino had him down locked and tight to make him not move as he refuses to tap out of the move until he just passed out and the referee called for the bell to crown a new champion!

That’s right, Shotaro Ashino has regained the Wrestle-1 Championship that he lost back in March. Manabu has had a fairly decent run with the championship, but Ashino being the champion is the right call for the company right now. Ashino is great in the ring and my favorite part of the shows next to Jiro and STRONG HEARTS. Wrestle-1 has been on a roll these past few shows and I hope they could keep the momentum going. Now the question is, who will step up to take the title away from Ashino?

Rating: Bruce Prichard and a quarter

 

Overall: It looks like we had another successful set of quickies for this article with some different and familiar promotions on here, and I gave you six this time instead of five. I hope you all enjoyed the next set of quickies and I hope to do a part 3 within the next week or so. Right now, I’m enjoying the ride and hope you all feel the same.

Favorite Match: Manabu Soya vs. Shotaro Ashino

Least Favorite Match: LAX vs. Brian Cage & Jeff Cobb

Score: 8/10

King: Top 5 Championship Matches in WWE Royal Rumble History

Chris King looks at the best championship matches that have taken place at a WWE Royal Rumble event!

Published

on

2020 WWE Royal Rumble

Chris King looks at the best championship matches that have taken place at a WWE Royal Rumble event!

I have gone back in time to reflect over Royal Rumble’s over the last decade. From 2012 to 2022 the WWE Universe bared witness to some amazing matches including AJ Styles defending his WWE Championship against Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn, The Rock defeating CM Punk and ending his historic championship reign, and even the ‘Beast Incarnate’ Brock Lesnar successfully defending his WWE World Heavyweight Championship against John Cena & Mr. Money in the Bank Seth Rollins in a classic triple-threat match.

Here are the top five championship matches at the Royal Rumble over the last decade.

Honorable mentions:

  • Brock Lesnar VS. Finn Balor (Universal Championship): Royal Rumble 2019
  • Brock Lesnar VS. Kane VS. Braun Strowman (Universal Championship): Royal Rumble 2017
  • Randy Orton VS. John Cena WWE World Heavyweight Championship (Royal Rumble 2014)
  • Daniel Bryan VS. AJ Styles (WWE Championship): Royal Rumble 2019

Top 5 Royal Rumble Championship Matches 

5. Kevin Owens vs. Roman Reigns (Universal Championship): Royal Rumble 2017

In August of 2016, the WWE Universe was shocked when Triple H turned on his former protege Seth Rollins and essentially handed the Universal Championship to Kevin Owens in a crazy fatal-four-way match. Over the next few months, Owens and Chris Jericho would become best friends and true enemies of Rollins and former Shield-mate Roman Reigns. After Reigns was screwed out of the title at Roadblock they would deliver a Shield bomb through the announce table to Owens.

Reigns and Owens would battle again at the Royal Rumble this time, Jericho would be locked inside of a shark cage to prevent interference. Both superstars delivered an impressive performance and threw out everything to defeat one another. Reigns was minutes away from winning the Universal Championship until Braun Strowman obliterated him, which allowed Owens the conniving champion to keep his title.

4. CM Punk vs. The Rock (WWE Championship): Royal Rumble 2013

The self-proclaimed ‘Best in the World’ CM Punk was on a complete tear going through the roster successfully holding the title for a historic 434 days. At Raw 1000, The Rock came back and challenged whoever was the champion at the time to a WWE Championship match at Royal Rumble. Later in the night, Punk would turn heel attacking ‘The People’s Champion’ and aligning himself with Paul Heyman shortly afterwards.

The Shield would work as mercenaries for Punk to retain his title since the 2012 Survivor Series where they debuted. Vince McMahon informed Punk that if The Shield got involved in the championship match he would be stripped of the title. After twenty minutes of back and forth action between champion and challenger, the lights went out and The Shield interfered yet again. McMahon came out to strip Punk of his championship but, The Rock had other plans and the match was restarted. The People’s Champion would deliver the People’s Elbow to end the historic reign of Punk.

3.  Roman Reigns vs. Seth Rollins (Universal Championship): Royal Rumble 2022

‘The Head of the Table’ Roman Reigns had conquered all of his challengers on Friday Night SmackDown, so a handpicked wild card was chosen from Monday Night Raw to challenge for the Universal Championship. Enter Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins. The two former Shield-mates had faced each other in the past but, this time felt different. Reigns was the arrogant and cocky heel while Rollins portrayed more of a tweener character. Rollins mocked the champion’s historic title reign and infuriated Reigns the go-home episode of SmackDown.

The Universal Championship match was the first match to open the show to a white-hot crowd. Reigns made his long grand entrance waiting for his challenger until a familiar theme erupted throughout the WWE Universe. Rollins not only mocked The Shield’s old entrance through the crowd but, was also decked in full Shield attire which pissed off the champion.

I feel like it’s impossible for these two superstars to have a bad match. They have incredible chemistry whether as partners or rivals. Reigns locked in his challenger with the Guillotine Choke but Rollins made it to the ropes. The Tribal Chief was relentless and would not break the hold so Rollins won by disqualification.

2. AJ Styles vs. John Cena (WWE Championship): Royal Rumble 2017

Let me start of by saying this was a very difficult choice to make because I went back and forth on making this number one. ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles shocked the world in 2016 not only for turning heel on John Cena but, beating him at Money in the Bank via shenanigans and SummerSlam completely clean in the middle of the ring. Styles went on to have an incredible run as WWE Champion over on SmackDown Live.

Cena went off and did his own thing after a devastating loss to his rival but, came back returned in time to challenge for the title to not only become a sixteen-time champion but to tie the illustrious record held by Ric Flair. Both superstars used every maneuver in their arsenal to win the match, but it came down to the final sequence to understand where Cena’s passion lies. Mr. Never Give Up hit the Attitude Adjustment and deadlifted Styles to deliver another thunderous AA to become the sixteen-time WWE Champion. What a freaking match!

1. Brock Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins vs. John Cena (WWE World Heavyweight Championship): Royal Rumble 2015

Even though the match before was tieing the legendary Ric Flair’s championship record, I still can say with full confidence that this triple threat match is one of the best matches in Royal Rumble history. Brock Lesnar had an impressive 2014 starting off with ending The Undertaker’s undefeated streak at WrestleMania, and then obliterating John Cena at SummerSlam to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

At Night of Champions Cena was minutes away from winning the title and defeating ‘The Beast Incarnate’ until the arrogant Mr. Money in the Bank Seth Rollins caused a disqualification. Leading up to the Royal Rumble, Cena and Rollins would face off in a tables match at the TLC pay-per-view, while Lesnar vanished. A huge triple threat match was set for the 2015 Royal Rumble pitting all three superstars against each other. Rollins who was still holding the briefcase bragged about if he didn’t win the title with Plan A, he would just cash-in and become the champion with Plan B.

From the moment the bell rang, the action began between Cena and Lesnar. Rollins played the manipulative cocky heel picking his moments to strike. Rollins and Cena took out The Beast on the outside to make it one-on-one. Lesnar was stretchered out of the match but miraculously came back and displayed his freakish strength taking anyone who moved to Suplex City. Rollins hit the champion twice with his briefcase and set up for the Curb Stomp. Lesnar bounced up and delivered a thunderous F5 to retain in a fantastic match.

I love this match so much because it was the first time that I believed Lesnar can deliver a great match and good story when he wants to. We’ve experienced this in his matches against AJ Styles, Daniel Bryan, and even Finn Balor. The Beast is a very smart performer and knows how to sell for his opponents to make them look like a megastar.

There you have it, those are my top five championship matches at Royal Rumble. Let me know what you think!

Greg DeMarco’s Top 5: WWE WrestleMania 39 Opponents For Roman Reigns Not Named The Rock

The Road to The Royal Rumble is here, which means we will soon have an opponent for The Tribal Chief! Greg DeMarco explores potential candidates…

Published

on

Roman Reigns Seth Rollins WWE WrestleMania 39

The Road to The Royal Rumble is here, which means we will soon have an opponent for The Tribal Chief! Greg DeMarco explores potential candidates…

Daddy’s back with something for you that is meant to be fun–and a distraction from the news surrounding Vince McMahon’s (likely terrible) return to WWE. Being a fan is meant to be fun, and one of the most fun things we get to do is look ahead to WrestleMania.

The main question, for this article at least, is who will be Roman Reigns’ opponent at The Granddaddy Of ‘Em All? Now everyone wants it to be The Rock, so we will explore the alternatives to that match.

In order to do that, I am making the following assumptions, even if some might not be true in the end:

  • Roman Reigns only wrestles one match, the final match on Night 2.
  • Roman Reigns is defending both the WWE and the Universal Championships in that match.
  • Roman Reigns–and this is just purely me–is not losing.

Honorable Mentions

I did have a few ideas who simply didn’t make the list. Check ’em out:

  • Drew McIntyre – Simply put: Why? Why would we put Drew McIntyre against Roman Reigns in a football stadium when we just saw him against Reigns in a football futbol stadium last fall?
  • Kevin Owens – Similarly, why would we do this right after we do it at the Royal Rumble?
  • Karrion Kross – Ok, now I’m just trolling you. He ain’t the guy, brother–not with this gimmick.
  • Ricochet – Personally, as an underdog babyface against Roman Reigns, I love Ricochet winning the Royal Rumble and challenging The Tribal Chief. But we have a better underdog on the list already.

With that all out of the way, it’s time to have some fun. I give you…

My Top 5 WWE WrestleMania 39 Opponents For Roman Reigns Not Named The Rock

5. Sami Zayn

The bloom is off the rose for Sami Zayn, at least in the eyes of The Tribal Chief. The eventual turn is one of the most telegraphed things in recent memory, and in this instance that is perfectly fine. Sami Zayn is insanely over, and him fighting the uphill battle with The Bloodline would get him Daniel-Bryan-Danielson-at-WrestleMania-30 levels of heat along the way.

People love Sami Zayn. His awkward charm and seemingly unlimited charisma won over the audience so well that his storyline with The Bloodline had to get extended multiple times over. However, it’s obviously coming to an end.

The obvious match is Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn against The Usos, but you could also slot Kevin against Solo Sikoa if Sami were to indeed get the nod.

4. Bron Breakker

You probably think I’m crazy, and I totally get it. Bron Breakker comes from NXT and goes right to the WrestleMania main event?

If you want to create a new star in Bron Breakker, this is how you do it. (At least, it’s one way you can do it.) Look at Roman Reigns himself–part of the story of his WrestleMania 31 challenge of Brock Lesnar was that he was growing into the role. JBL told the story on commentary, and the match was all about Roman ascending to the level of Brock.

Of course it was all the perfect set-up for Seth Rollins to give us the greatest Money In The Bank cash-in in WWE history, but in the process Roman proved that he belongs.

So make this year’s Royal Rumble the ultimate opportunity–the most shocking winner since Rey Mysterio, the NXT Champion Bron Breakker.

3. Seth (Freakin’) Rollins

Seth Rollins seems to be in a never ending program with Austin Theory, and it’s time to move on. Seth is an automatic main eventer in WWE at this point. He’s a made man, probably the next biggest star (on the men’s side) in WWE after Roman Reigns.

And he also has a very specific distinction that no one else has: a singles victory over Roman Reigns since he made his huge return in 2020. Yes, it was by disqualification, but he has proven his abilities to get inside the head of the Tribal Chief.

And Seth Rollins is going to have a match at WrestleMania, and 50,000+ in Sofi Stadium are going to be singing his song. Might as well be in the match that closes WrestleMania Night 2.

2. Sheamus

This is purely a match on my playlist–but this is MY list. And to me, Sheamus makes perfect sense.

In fact, I thought the feud between The Bloodline and The Brawling Brutes would lead to Sheamus challenging Roman Reigns at the Royal Rumble. And had Sami Zayn’s involvement in The Bloodline not taken off the way it did, we still may have.

Sheamus is more popular now than ever, and at 44 years of age he is doing some of his best work. Sheamus winning his second Royal Rumble and challenging Roman Reigns would be the Lifetime Achievement Award he deserves.

But it’s more than that! The match? It would deliver in a big way. History? There’s plenty between Sheamus and Roman, going back to when Sheamus cashed in Money In The Bank on Reigns, and when Reigns eventually beat The Celtic Warrior to win one of his world championships. The fans? They would be solidly behind Sheamus, and would go nuts for every near fall. Don’t sleep on Sheamus as your WrestleMania 39 main event opponent for Roman Reigns.

1. “Stone Cold” Steve Austin

Full credit for this idea belongs to PC Tunney and Dave Ungar, as shared in the Chairshot Radio Twitter DM thread. And it’s steal-worthy indeed.

Three major legendary names are rumored for WrestleMania 39: The Rock, John Cena, and Steve Austin. All three make sense for a multitude of reasons. But The Rock will be launching a football league (which might be a reason to do this–the publicity), and is still in insane demand in Hollywood. Cena seems to be free at the present time, and we’ve seen the videos of Austin working out.

Remember, I am assuming Roman Reigns is going to win. If that’s the case, then this WrestleMania is but another moment in Reigns’ legacy. Why not add Steve Austin to his list of victories?

It would sell. ✅
The fans would buy it. ✅
Austin proved he can go. ✅

This type of match is what WrestleMania is all about. If it’s not The Rock, it should be “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.

And there you have it, my list of–

Wait a minute Greg, what about Cody Rhodes?!?!

Man, I thought I could slip this one past the goalie!

Cody Rhodes is a great question. But you have to look at my assumptions above. I am assuming Roman only wrestles one match, defends both championships, and–most importantly–doesn’t lose. Given those assumptions, you want Cody Rhodes as far away from this match as possible.

If we do split the titles, then Cody needs to be the guy to walk away with the WWE Championship. He does that either over Seth Rollins, or in a triple threat on Night 1 against Reigns and Rollins–but Rollins still eats the fall.

But under my conditions, losing at WrestleMania doesn’t do anything for Cody.
