Cody Rhodes is a three times TNT Champion in the next chapter in the bonkers rollercoaster that has been his 2021. Whatever is next for him is anybody's guess, hopefully his 2022 will see the emergence of a more well-rounded character.
Sammy Guevara vs Cody Rhodes
Cody Rhodes clocked in two and a half minutes of Submission time as he defended against Guevara's superior Striking Rate. Cody was also notable for hitting big Grapples and matching notable high flier-Guevara's Dive Rate. Perhaps most notably was the fact Cody achieved 2.33x Guevara's offence.
Yet, the match was a see-saw affair with Cody gaining the numerical advantage due to a 5-minute period of offence mid match and his huge end of match peak.
Jungle Boy vs Isiah Kassidy
This one was surprisingly even with the competitors only differing in the manner in which they cumulated offence. Jungle Boy relied on more Grapples and Strikes whereas Kassidy lent on Submissions.
Hook vs Bear Bronson
Hook took apart the bigger Bear Bronson in his second AEW match. He out-did Bronson in every way; leaning particularly on Grapples and Submission.
Kris Statlander vs Leyla Hirsch
Leyla Hirsch's attitude change saw her test Kris Statlander with heavy Strikes and a Submission advantage. Statlander, again, utilised her strength via big Grapples.
