Recap from TJ Hawke:
This was the night after John Cena won the 2013 Royal Rumble. Cody lasted a long time in the rumble himself. Cena hit a hiptoss and a dropkick. Cena hit a fisherman suplex, so Cody dropped to the floor. Cody grabbed a microphone. He said this was “a waste of Cody Rhodes.” I agree! Cena grabbed Cody and threw him back in the ring. Shoulder tackle. Another shoulder tackle. Protoplex. Five Knuckle Shuffle. FU: 1…2…3.
Poor Cody Rhodes. The commentary team was trying to get over the fact that John Cena’s 2013 was off to a great start after his bad 2012. I’m pretty John Cena main evented every PPV but one and defeated Brock Lesnar. So, lol. This was in fact a waste of Cody Rhodes.
Match Rating: 1/2*
