Cody Rhodes got his hands on Shawn Spears where he was able to get his revenge.
The AEW Executive Vice President did so at the All Out event in at the Sears Centre in Chicago, IL that aired on pay-per-view. Tully Blanchard was in the corner of Spears for the match as his manager. MJF was in the corner of Rhodes.
Prior to the match, DDP walked out with Rhodes. In the middle of the match to even the odds, Arn Anderson hit a spinebuster to Spears.
The promotion confirmed the match on an episode of The Road To All Out. The feud was set up at the Fyter Fest event in June where Rhodes went to a draw with Darby Allin.
Post-match, Spears, formerly known as Tye Dillinger, hit Rhodes in the head with a steel chair with Rhodes turning his head and didn’t put up his hands.
Rhodes was bleeding pretty good from the back of his head. It was an accident as the chair was supposed to be gimmicked but went wrong.
