Cody Rhodes has taken to social media to express his feelings in storyline following what he is calling the biggest loss thus far in his pro wrestling career.
As seen at Saturday’s (November 9, 2019) AEW Full Gear pay-per-view event from the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland, Rhodes lost to AEW World Heavyweight Champion Chris Jericho in the co-main event when Jericho had him in the Walls of Jericho only to have MJF throw in the towel, which cost him the match.
After the match, MJF turned on him by connecting with a low blow.
As a result, the stipulation heading into the match stated that should he not beat Jericho then he wouldn’t allow himself to challenge for the World Title again.
Rhodes took to his official Instagram account where he wrote the following:
"Lovely snap my Wife got of Pharaoh and I days removed from the biggest loss of my professional career," Cody wrote in the caption of the photo. "Nothing positive will come from whining/pointing fingers. I'd like to thank everybody who attended Full Gear & Dynamite this last week, from Baltimore to Nashville...some of the loudest and loveliest fans ever. Both cities did it 'AEW style' by not just making it about a single event, but instead turning multiple days into a party and destination.
"I'd like to thank Tony Khan and my fellow EVPs. As well as Keith Mitchell, Tim Walbert, Rafael, Sandra, Janet, Stella, Chris H, Jeff J, QT Marshall, Jim Ross/Excalibur, Steve Yu & Dylan at Comeback Studios, and the long list of invaluable soldiers who were able to bring together such a first-rate production. I'd also like to extend my gratitude to the Baltimore Commission and Dr Michael Sampson for treating my cut and allowing the World Title match to proceed for the fans in attendance. The end result is not something I can accept, it was my call/choice to make and nobody else's. I can't change it, but I can move forward and hopefully find some vindication. Need to heal, train, and most importantly DO THE WORK. Lesson here: always trust your dog. @allelitewrestling @aewontnt"
