Cody's moonsault off the top of a steel cage on AEW Dynamite remains perhaps one of the most defining moments in the show's relatively short history, but the move is something Cody might not do anytime soon.
Responding to fan questions on Twitter, Cody said the chances of him ever doing a moonsault off the top of a steel cage again are slim. Cody explained that the steel cage he jumped off of on Dynamite was much taller than other steel cages he's wrestled in, particularly the steel cages he's been in while with WWE.
After the steel cage match against Wardlow back in February, it was revealed that Cody suffered a Non-displaced fracture of distal phalanx in his right great toe.
The likelihood of me ever doing it again is incredibly slim. Cage was considerably higher than what I’m used to and I just had the mat.— Cody (@CodyRhodes) April 14, 2020
No crashpad or Sorbothane padding.
Happy moment though! Big win. https://t.co/FMmNb3JLbm
Speaking of steel cage matches in WWE, Cody also said he may have regretted doing one against The New Age Outlaws. When someone pointed out a steel cage match he was in against The Real Americans (Cesaro and Jack Swagger, now known as Jake Hager), Cody spoke highly of Cesaro, whom he referred to as Claudio.
I got cocky.— Cody (@CodyRhodes) April 14, 2020
It backfired here. -- https://t.co/bXpZkw3R34
Good match. Claudio is the most underrated guy on the planet(and he’s still highly rated!). Dude can do anything. Like a PWG Nikita Koloff. https://t.co/tuQtcWtoRF— Cody (@CodyRhodes) April 14, 2020
Cody can be seen every week on AEW Dynamite, which airs on TNT every Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET.
