• WWE Hall Of Famer Says Cody Rhodes Looked Stupid While Taking Unprotected Chair Shot
As we have noted before, Cody Rhodes was struck in the head with a Steel Chair by Shawn Spears (f.k.a Tye Dillinger in WWE) at AEW Fyter Fest and this busted open Cody.
WWE Hall of Famer “Superstar” Billy Graham gave his views on this situation in a Facebook post.
Below is what Graham posted:
OK fans, I have 2 questions that I would like those that believe they know the answer, to please respond.
1. Why did Cody not put his hands and or forearms up in a defensive position when the guy was coming at him with a chair raised over his head in an obvious aggressive move, telegraphing ( old school term ) his intention of hitting Cody in the head ?
I find this odd that Cody, an experienced worker would just stand there facing a wrestling opponent with a metal chair raised over his head to strike him, with his hands down by his side looking stupid, no offense to Cody but that is stupid body language and does not make sense.
2. Since we all can see in the photo below and those of you who saw the match, that the lip of the chair did indeed strike the back of Cody’s head. So why gimmick a metal folding chair if you are not capable of hitting your opponent in the front of his head as the photo of me below demonstrates after a match against Wahoo ?
Wahoo hit me in the head with a metal folding chair and the blood shows the correct way to blade yourself. And, if you enlarge this photo even though it’s a bit blurry you will see a straight line across my forehead where the blade traveled. I now go back to my original theory that it was a hard way chair shot that went wrong ending up on the back of Cody’s head, resulting in 12 staples. Yes or no ??
Again, why would you even go to the trouble of gimmicking a metal chair if in fact you don’t even know how to deliver the chair shot to the head ?
