After weeks of teases, Cody Rhodes’ opponent for Double or Nothing has been revealed.
Brothers will be facing off when Cody faces Dustin Rhodes at Double or Nothing. The show is All Elite Wrestling’s first event and is taking place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday, May 25.
The match was built up in episode 13 of AEW’s Road to Double or Nothing series. Dustin was the focus of the video, with him saying he loves Cody and is proud of him but discussing a rift that exists between them. Dustin painted half of his face in the video, saying that the red stands for life and the black stands for death.
Dustin said Cody is making a mistake by having a match with him, that Cody is facing his reckoning, and their fight needs to end and should have ended years ago. Dustin closed the episode by saying: “One last ride — or is it?”
Pro Wrestling Sheet reported on March 28 that Dustin’s contract with WWE had recently expired and he was waiting to become a free agent, though Dustin tweeted that he was still under contract with WWE at the time.
