Executive Vice President of All Elite Wrestling, Cody, was the victim of a brutal attack at the end of Saturday’s episode of AEW Dynamite. Brodie Lee and his Dark Order minions gave Cody the beat down after losing the TNT Championship to Lee in a quick one-sided squash match.
A report by PWInsider states that Cody will not be seen on screen for several weeks in order to sell the attack. AEW have have already announced an update on his status for this weeks episode of Dynamite which will be shown on Thursday. It seems he will not have a match this week and he wont have for a while.
Its also being speculated by Mike Johnson that Cody may be takin a break from AEW for a potential appearance in an upcoming television series. The timing seems to be corresponding to a related casting call that was made in Georgia last week by independent wrestler Luke Hawx:
** Attention Georgia & surrounding area wrestlers**On Tues 08/25/20 I’ll be holding an open casting call for a new TV show we are currently filming. We are specifically looking for PROFESSIONAL WRESTLERS for various roles. We will have a COVID protocol to follow and you will not be actually wrestling against anyone but we will asking you to perform certain drills to see abilities of each individual.This is open to ALL wrestlers so feel free to share with anyone who may be interested.

We ask to get there early and there will be a list to fill out and then you will wait in your vehicle until we call you inside.

It is being rumoured that Cody was specifically asked to take part in the series which is said to be neither a documentary nor a pro wrestling event. More details should emerge soon on the event and Cody’s involvement.
