2. Darby Allin becomes Cody’s nightmare

As announced by the man himself, the man formerly known as Cody has found his Rhodes. Cody Rhodes and Darby Allin are two men that are far from being strangers. Cody actually recruited Darby Allin to AEW. Since then, we have seen three different wars between Darby and Cody since AEW opened. In two of the three matches, Cody was able to get the job done and defeat Darby Allin. While in the third bout and ironically their first bout, they went to a time limit draw.

However, Cody has a clear lead in the rivalry between the two. A lead that Cody knows good and well. On Dynamite, Cody declared that Darby Allin would love to have the “Ace” belt but he wasn’t the ace of AEW. Now, does that mean that Cody is the ace of AEW? He would be the first to say that the TNT Champion is the face of TNT. So it would seem that Cody’s confidence is at an all-time high.

In his own mind, Darby doesn’t have it in him to actually defeat him. He vocally endorses the talent and the man, Darby Allin, but he still believes that he is better than him. And up to this point, it is hard to disagree with Cody. Darby is still young in the business while Cody has become a respected veteran. Cody gave Darby his chance in AEW and has tested his ability time after time. However, is Cody underestimating his own hand-selection for AEW?

Cody needs to look at Darby like the biggest threat to ever come for his championship. If Cody gives Darby even the slightest opening, Darby is going to take it. Darby knows that this could be his last opportunity to prove himself not only to Cody Rhodes but to the entire world watching him at Full Gear. It is no shocker that AEW and the fans are both high on Darby and if it was ever a time to show up, it’s now. I would not be shocked to see Darby Allin leave Full Gear with his first championship in AEW.
