    Words cannot express how powerful this promo between Heyman and Cody actually was. THIS is professional wrestling at its peak storytelling. Everything about what was said between them was absolutely phenomenal and makes it worth that much more getting invested into. Amazing buildup and an amazing job all around!

      @Jay W he's taken part in wrestling before actually. I don't know if he still does it considering he's got a career on Clip-Share but he has wrestled a couple matches. He also recorded his matched and uploaded them back when he was barely a youtuber. Lol this guys been around over 10 years

      @UnrealEntGaming. If that's not a powerful promo, I don't know what is! As Joey Styles would say, "OH MY GOD!!"......Of course, that's when Joey wasn't doing his soundbytes of "CAT FIGHT!" or... "TO-TAL E-LIM-INA--TION!" 🤣🤣🤣

    One of the most underrated lines in this whole promo “I am just trying to win a wrestling championship and everyone wants to make it personal”

      It's literally the line the entire promo is built around, how is it underrated... I swear the word "underrated" has become overrated in today's culture lol.

    This is some of the best TV WWE has put out in years. This promo was just unreal and the raw emotion was spine chilling.

      @Loose Screws Yeah, I haven't really watched wrestling in about 17-18 years I'd say. Once Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, Randy Savage, Stone Cold, The Rock, Davey Boy Smith, Steiner Bro's, Dudley Boyz, Road Warriors, etc quit wrestling I just lost interest.
      The product itself got bad in general after the switch to PG honestly.

      @IKE NOT TURNER315 How can you forget the iconic "we chopee chopee your peepee" or Mae Young giving birth to a hand after sleeping with Mark Henry? Instant classics. Peak storytelling.

      @GaspoweR I couldn't have said it better 😂

    • GaspoweR
      GaspoweR Month ago +2

      @IKE NOT TURNER315 YEP for as much as the Attitude era was incredibly popular the story lines were more bombastic and outrageous, basically just a natural progression of the previous eras before which culminated in the whole Monday Night Wars and the WCW acquisition. Like what we're watching is legit good story telling that has so many interwoven story lines that somehow they're able to make it cohesive

    Bringing reality to the show to get the audience hooked and even more invested is the greatest thing as a fan. Cody said it right I was just a guy trying to win a wrestling championship but everyone wants to make it personal 😂😭 love it!

  • Tyler Gregory

    I genuinely think Paul Heyman was so proud of Cody and his father that he was breaking. I don’t think he was acting, I think he legitimately just loves working with Cody that much.

    • Damian Cross
      Damian Cross 28 days ago

      People said the same thing about the promo where Paul accused Vince of stealing his ideas. Because Heyman's NOT acting. He's shooting and turning that shoot into money. Roman Reigns and Cody aren't going to go and try to beat each other up for real, but it'll feel like they are because there's truth behind that conflict.

      AEW has no type. It's generic.

    • StormSnake0618
      StormSnake0618 Month ago +8

      @Ian T. Essich Cody is the one to beat Roman. Not only is he on fire right now, but it'll show people in AEW that grass is greener on the other side of the pond too. Which in turn will make AEW start valuing the talent they have more and vice versa. Competition breeds excellence.

    • Ian T. Essich
      Ian T. Essich Month ago +2

      And that's why they're not going to let him go over Roman.

    • Colin Valadez
      Colin Valadez Month ago +6

      His promos worked so much better with WWE. He's definitely my favorite top baby face right now. I think a lot of people can agree with that too.
      Also, I think everything works better now we don't have to deal with the nightmare factory. And no offense to the nightmare factory but that Brandi and Arn it was all dragging him down.

  • Graham Wellington

    • jzon3251
      jzon3251 Month ago +4

      Roman’s promos now give more clarity to the character he’s playing on TV. He’s playing the perfectionist faction leader that refuses to let anyone get anywhere near his level again. Roman has now taken the mantle of probably the best traditional heel in modern history because facing him is like facing god at this point of WWE and his promos with Brock Lesnar before WM and his promos against Jey Uso was extremely egotistical.

  • Jamal Taylor

    The fact that they both were crying during this promo said alot about just how much Dusty meant to everyone. RIP The American Dream

    hoodievillian Month ago +53

    I've been a pro wrestling fan for 23 years and this was one of the best promos I've ever seen. If you look closely you can see a few people crying in the crowd. Can't remember the last time a segment emotionally captivated us so much. This was amazing.

      I remember watching in late 60's and 70's as a kid on Saturdays. Got into it again during the 80's, then again mid to late 90's. Who didn't like people trying to stand up to Vince like Stone Cold, and the Rock. Fighting against the NWO and the Authority factions.

    This is the excellence in wrestling/sports entertainment that draws you in. These 2 are absolute pros at what they do. I’d legit buy WrestleMania on PPV to see this and we’ve really only started the road to mania. Nothing short of spectacular. Cody’s stock was already high for me, but this moment took him up a notch.

    • WinTrain
      WinTrain Month ago

      @DrRockkso I think Roman is going to lose 100% BUT BY COUNT OUT... So Cody won't retain the titles, they'll fight again and then Cody will win.

    • DrRockkso
      DrRockkso Month ago +1

      @Will R. He's 100% going to lose to Roman. I don't want him to, but Roman is the WWE's new Cena. They feed everybody to him.

  • Jason Sauls
    Jason Sauls Month ago +9

    This was a very good segment. So much of what makes a good feud is the story you tell. Heyman is simply one of the GOAT on the mic and Cody has elevated his game. I think in the build-up there is a way to get people to genuinely care about Cody as much as they do for Sami (or close to it) and deliver a satisfying match.

    Cody you bugger, you made me sweat from my eyes when you brought up your father, The American Dream Dusty Rhodes(rest in paradise). Then Heyman dropped that bomb at the end with the mic drop, it was perfectly timed well executed. It made it personal for Cody.

    Great promos in wrestling really do still exist. They're just harder to find. We need more of them. A lot more.

      @Lance Jones Paul Heyman actually has been in the business for 30+ years. He started in his early 20s

      Glad some people are starting to realize this. Dude has always been a great mouthpiece and manager. Imo one of the greatest managers ever.

      He's truly among the few wrestling personalities you hate when you're young but appreciate when you're old enough to understand how necessary he's always been to the industry

    This is one of the reasons why I started watching wrestling again. Sure it’s not as believable & entertaining as the Attitude Era was, but it brings an nostalgic feeling back watching people fly around the ring and I still find it enjoyable to watch sometimes. Maybe if we get more hulky believable wrestlers again it might be almost like it was back in the day, but I doubt it.

    The moments that they (clearly) went off script and got emotional...not to mention, after hearing what Cody had to say, the look on Paul's face and the reaction he had was one of "I don't even want to finish what I'm scripted to say, I just wanna hug you, son". You can tell, storyline aside, there is a lot of love and respect between these two men. I could imagine them incorporating that into a storyline later with Paul as Cody's manager.

      We talking Vince, triple H Stephanie any wrestler hall of famer, retired whether ECW, WCEformely known as WEF Dusty was a wrestling icon, one of the greatest promo speaker on the mic! The universal championship should go to Cody and WWE championship should go to Jey USO
      And split the tag team championship up between K.O & Sammi Zayn and the other tag team belts should go to Drew & Shemus...
      it's to balance out and split those titles up back to RAW and Smackdown...Roman generated enough money to the company... it's time to give him a rest..let us miss him for a while then he comeback with a epic return for a good storyline.

    That promo from both men was everything. The way Heyman delivered that last line was like an embracing hug only to receive a dagger in the back. It literally gave me chills

    This is the first time in at least 4 or 5 years where a WWE storyline actually feels like a huge deal. This promo hopefully makes the rest of the locker room step up.
