• Why WWE Didn’t Go With Cody Rhodes As A Surprise Entrant In The 2023 Royal Rumble

Cody Rhodes will return to WWE programming by entering the Men’s Royal Rumble 2023 match.

WWE didn’t keep his return a surprise and announced it ahead of time.

According to Wrestlevotes, here’s the reason behind this move:

“Asked a source the reasoning behind Cody’s Rumble return being announced as opposed to a surprise…

Source said it’s twofold, one being that nearly everyone expected it to happen already & two, source states they are ‘more than pleased’ with the other surprises that are lined up.”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (January 25, 1995) – WCW Clash of the Champions 30

On this day in Pro Wrestling history on January 25, 1995, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘WCW Clash Of The Champions 30’ LIVE on TBS from the Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Caesars Palace has also been the location of WWF WrestleMania IX, almost 2 years earlier, but while the World Wrestling Federation went for the open-air arena, WCW booked their Clash event to be held in the indoor arena.

The results from that night:

WCW World Television Championship: Arn Anderson (c) defeated Johnny B. Badd

Alex Wright defeated Bobby Eaton

WCW World Tag Team Championship: Harlem Heat (c) defeated Stars & Stripes

Guest referee The Guardian Angel: Sting defeated Avalanche

Hulk Hogan & Randy Savage defeated Kevin Sullivan & The Butcher
