• Cody Rhodes Defends WWE’s Decision To Have Former Universal Champion Open WWE Live Events
A fan complained to former WWE Star Cody Rhodes about WWE booking former Universal Champion Finn Balor to be in the opening match at WWE Live Events.
It's a fucking disgrace that @FinnBalor is opening up house shows. Top 5 in the world and you've got him opening fucking house shows. This man deserves better. @CodyRhodes set this man free, please. For all wrestling fans.

Below is what Cody replied:
Opening match is sometimes one of the more coveted spots on the card. Bunch of responsibility too…and for the biggest wrestling company in the world as well. https://t.co/XDgM6MdiIl
