The newest Ten Pounds of Gold came out from the NWA yesterday (May 31). It’s pretty good! It’s got build to Nick Aldis vs. Cody Rhodes for the Worlds Heavyweight Championship and everything!
It largely focuses on Cody, which is why long-time MMA professional Phil Baroni, who’s also been making moves to get into sports entertainment for a while, used it as opening to take a shot at Rhodes:
@CodyRhodes SUCKs Couldn’t find anyone more legit than that? https://t.co/9pjqskg5AC— phil baroni (@philbaroni) May 31, 2018
He probably didn’t expect both barrels in response, though:
You're so sweet Phil. Your like 5yr long MMA to wrestling transition isn't working huh?— Cody Rhodes (@CodyRhodes) May 31, 2018
A) stop calling George Carrol. He's too afraid to tell you that njpw isn't interested. Nobody is interested.
B) I don't do online angles ya' fly by night human hatrack. Get the fuck out. https://t.co/jSiXqC7fNc
Baroni continues to fire back with winners like “Cody still sucks” and not-true claims Rhodes was “cut” by WWE, but I think it’s safe to call this fight.
Now Phil can get back to finalizing that WWE contract he’s been working on for three years now...
