Last night at WWE WrestleMania Backlash, Cody Rhodes defeated Seth Rollins in the show’s opening match.

The bout was a rematch from WrestleMania, where Cody made his sensational return to WWE aS Rollins’ surprise opponent.

The match last night was incredible, with one fan even going as far as to call it the ‘Match of the Year’, which you can read more about by clicking here.

It was Cody who picked up the win, but the finish wasn’t 100% clean, so a third match between the two top stars could be on the cards.

While the match featured several great spots, it was one moment in particular that really caught the attention of fans.

At one stage during the match, Cody went to hit Rollins with a moonsault, and while he may have missed, the spot was picture-perfect.

As you can see below, Rhodes sailed through the air beautifully, but Rollins was able to get out of the way, hitting his opponent with a Pedigree.

As noted, the spot was just one of several fantastic moments to come from the match, which you should definitely go out of your way to watch.

Cody walked out of Rhode Island showing the physical effects of his match, as was evidenced by a gruesome-looking photo that was uploaded to social media, which you can see by clicking here.
