Cody Rhodes' epic promo about Chris Jericho on AEW Dynamite this week ahead of their match at Full Gear this weekend has caught the attention of one of the best promo-deliverers in wrestling history, The Rock.
Cody Rhodes will take on Chris Jericho for the AEW World Championship this weekend at Full Gear, and Cody got everyone hyped up for the match after an excellent promo on Dynamite.
The AEW VP delivered an epic promo where he promised if he loses the match at Full Gear, he'll never challenge for the AEW World title again.
During his promo, Cody talked about the stakes of him not being able to win the AEW World title in what many are describing as one of the best babyface promos of all time.
Even The Rock found the time during his busy schedule to give Cody the praise he rightfully deserves.

The Great One said in a tweet: "Rhythm, cadence, tone, intent, passion, execution. Great promo, brother. You 🎤 dropped that MF. @CodyRhodes"
Cody replied by sending The Rock a photo of himself flexing in the gym while wearing his Under Armour gear with the caption: "Thank you friend 👊"
Many wrestling icons and critics alike have described Cody's promo on Jericho as one which wrestling schools will show to their classes for generations to come.
It was a world-class promo from the AEW VP as it was a perfect demonstration of a babyface looking to knock down a heel from a position of power and the lengths they've had to go through to even be considered for a match.
From undesirable to un-goddamn-deniable. And The Rock approves.
Now we'll have to wait until Full Gear this Saturday to see if Cody is able to complete his process and capture the AEW World title, or if this will be the only time we see him go after AEW's top prize.
It looks like it's a match that even The Rock is not going to miss.News Now - Sport News
