Here are 6 takeaways from this week’s Dynamite:
6Cody Attacked Lance Archer
Lance Archer came down to the ring to begin this week’s show. Archer beat the hell out of a backstage worker as Jake Roberts stood behind him. Roberts got in the ring and said that he was asked to give an apology for his antics last week.
Roberts stated that he will give an apology after Brandi kisses his ass. Jake essentially said that women belong at home before Cody burst into Daily’s Place in a truck. Cody beat Lance Archer down before staring at Jake Roberts. Cody started walking towards Jake and Archer capitalized by attacking Cody from behind.
Archer slammed Cody on the ring apron before Rhodes used Lance’s own hair to choke him. Cody launched a chair at Archer’s face and went for a Cutter but Lance blocked it. Jake then grabbed Archer and the two retreated up the entrance ramp.
Opinion: I’m sure this promo will piss people off and all that means is Jake Roberts is doing his job. The brawl between Cody and Archer was pretty sloppy but this was still a good segment.
