Both Adam Cole & Damian Priest got referenced on Dynamite

A case of AEW putting their tongue in their cheek, or their foot in their mouth?

Tonight (Dec. 4) on Dynamite, Cody Rhodes, color commentator Excalibur, and Britt Baker poked at the WWE just a little bit.

It started with Cody taking a dig at MJF’s horrible version of the Cross Rhodes last week during his match versus Adam Page. It was really bad and MJF should never attempt it again.

Rhodes lumped in NXT wrestler Damian Priest’s variation of the Cross Rhodes in his promo on Wednesday night.

The second NXT on AEW Easter Egg occurred during the commercial break. While AEW fans in the United States got a picture-in-picture, those who were watching via the Fite TV app heard Excalibur and Baker giving a nod to NXT Champion Adam Cole.

Yes, that is AEW parodying Britt Baker’s crowd reaction shot from NXT’s TakeOver: WarGames from earlier in the month.

Are these moments just a case of AEW having fun, or should they scale back on referencing WWE?
