However, a huge surprise that actually tipped the scales and Cody's favor was the appearance of the enforcer, Arn Anderson. Ric Flair‘s former backup delivered a classic spinebuster to The Perfect 10, and opened the door for Cody to win the match by distracting Tully Blanchard with his presence.

For now, MJF's loyalty proved to be genuine and there was no heel turn from the man who has been dubbed Salt of the Earth.
Not only did @CodyRhodes get the W. But, he survived a hellacious match over Shawn Spears ( @Perfec10n ) #AEWALLOUT - Available on @BRlive https://t.co/bi2xiRzUST #AEW #AllEliteWrestling pic.twitter.com/nOnC7pfLf8— All Elite Wrestling (@AEWrestling) September 1, 2019
Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard we're a preferred tag team out of the Four Horsemen tandems throughout the years. They also had a year-long in the WWF as the Brain Busters in 1988.
The appearance even caught the attention of WWE commentator, Renee Young

Arn Anderson was recently fired by the WWE after serving over a decade as a backstage producer. This fall, Double A is expected to start a podcast alongside Conrad Thompson.
