Cody Rhodes and The Miz kicked off the latest edition of Monday Night RAW with a Miz TV segment that saw the A-Lister retire.
The pair, who are due to face off later in the night, kicked off the show with a Miz TV interview segment and let loose on each other with some cutting words. During the promo, The Miz talked about the Mysterio family and Logan Paul before mocking how long Cody’s entrance was when The American Nightmare reached the ring.
The two then went back and forth, with Cody Rhodes calling The Miz a “carney” and calling him a “reliable Mike” for towing the WWE company line so eagerly. The American Nightmare also told The A-Lister that he hadn’t changed in six years. Cody also dropped a number of terms like “belt” and “wrestler,” but was corrected to “championship title” and “superstar” by The Miz.
The Miz retaliated by mocking Cody for his secretive behavior prior to his return to WrestleMania and berated a plumber’s grandson for getting more media attention than him. He also told Cody that without his family he would be nothing.
The end of the segment saw The Miz try to attack Rhodes as the latter dodged and sent Miz outside. The A-Lister then retired and went backstage.
The Miz told Cody Rhodes that Seth Rollins was looking for a WrestleMania rematch
During the Miz TV segment, the former two-time WWE Champion told The American Nightmare that his WrestleMania opponent Seth Rollins was looking for a rematch.
The Miz then added that, with time to prepare for Cody, Seth Rollins would make short work of a plumber’s grandson.
Cody Rhodes responded by saying he would welcome the rematch out of respect for Rollins. Whether The American Nightmare and The Visionary will face off once again in the coming weeks remains to be seen.
