Last night Cody Rhodes made his TNA Impact Wrestling TV debut in the promo video below in which he says he will be at the TNA Bound for Glory pay-per-view on Sunday October 2.
As noted, TNA posted a video of Cody Runnels, f.k.a. Cody Rhodes, teasing an appearance for tonight’s Impact Wrestling (most likely a video package since the show was taped).
TNA had also announced earlier this week that Cody’s wife Brandi, f.k.a. Eden in WWE ,had signed with the company and will be wrestling in the Knockouts division. She will be known as Brandi Rhodes, which WWE doesn’t own because she never used that name in WWE. However, as noted, Cody is not able to use the “Rhodes” last name because WWE has it registered. Cody had never used the “Rhodes” name as a wrestler before his WWE run since he started his career with them.
Dave Meltzer had first reported in The Wrestling Observer that Cody and Brandi were scheduled to do a program with Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis in TNA. Meltzer noted in the latest issue of the Observer that while Cody can’t currently use the Rhodes last name, they can bill Cody and Brandi as Cody & Brandi Rhodes for their mixed tag matches, since he will be going by “Cody” on television anyway.
Ask Cris “Cyborg” Justino her thoughts on Ronda Rousey or cutting weight and the Brazilian gets a little testy. Justino, the reigning Invicta FC featherweight champion, returns to the Octagon this Saturday night at UFC Fight Night 95 to take on Lina Lansberg in the main event. Over the past several days, Justino has been bombarded with questions about the cut to 140 pounds for the catchweight contest.
“I’m getting down. It’ll be OK,” she said during an interview on UFC Tonight. “This time we used birth control. I hold more water, and have less time to make 140. I think it’ll be OK. I trust George Lockhart. I hope everything will be OK on Friday.”
Reports that Cyborg has had to cut 20-plus pounds just this week have filled social media. She offered up some insight into it all and did say that she feels capable of making the signed weight.
As for her nemesis, Rousey, that is another question that continues to be presented to her. The two have long been rumored for a potential fight, though Rousey is currently sidelined.
There continues to be talk of D-Von Dudley coming back to work for WWE as a backstage agent. He would still run the Team 3D Wrestling Academy in Florida but this means that Bubba Ray Dudley would likely continue working the indies as a singles star.
The following is set for tonight’s 9/22 TNA IMPACT Wrestling on POP TV:
The Grand Championship Tournament continues: Aron Rex vs. Eli Drake and Drew Galloway vs. Eddie Edwards
TNA Knockouts Champion Maria Kanellis holds a public workout
Tag Team Champions The Decay will send a warning to The Hardys
TNA X-Division Champion DJ Z vs. Trevor Lee
TNA is teasing that Cody Rhodes will make his TNA Debut tonight.
