Cody did his first promo since his return to AEW, accepting TNT Champion Mr. Brodie Lee's challenge for a dog collar match for next week's live Dynamite.
On Wednesday's show, the former and inaugural TNT champion initially told Dasha Fuentes "no" and walked away, but came back into the ring and said, "No as in no regrets" and emphatically accepted in babyface fashion. This brought out Lee and the two got in a long pull-apart brawl that saw the locker room empty out to separate them.
That pull-apart included Brandi Rhodes who did a flip off the top rope onto the Dark Order on the outside of the ring which caused Anna Jay and she to then also be pulled apart.
Lee defeated Rhodes in minutes for the TNT title on Dynamite, putting Cody out of action in an injury angle as he filmed a show for TNT.
Other announced matches:
- As part of the Chris Jericho 30th anniversary celebration, Le Champion will team with Inner Circle stablemate Jake Hager against the undefeated team of Chaos Project (Luther and Serpentico). The teams got in a brawl after Jericho's win over Isiah Kassidy on this week's Dynamite.
- FTW Champion Brian Cage will defend the title against Will Hobbs. The two brawled after Hobbs came out to get rid of Cage when he tried to interfere in Wednesday's Ricky Starks-Darby Allin match.
