AEW sells the heck out of Rhodes vs. Bucks, and refuses to give up on the Librarian

The final episode of Cody’s The Road to Fight for the Fallen is embedded above. If you’re at all curious about the show coming our way from Jacksonville, Florida via B/R Live this Saturday night (July 13), or what All Elite Wrestling is bringing to the table in general - it’s worth your 11 minutes.

We get another glimpse of what the “analytics-based” approach AEW President Tony Khan has been talking about will look like as Alex Marvez breaks down Fight for the Fallen’s tag team main event by the numbers. Allie responds to Brandi Rhodes’ well-received promo from last week’s episode, and that match loses much of its face/heel dynamic in favor of a more sports-like feel. There’s another bit from VP Nik Sobic putting over the show itself, this time focused on the Daly’s Place venue.

On the latest episode of Being The Elite, Matt & Nick Jackson joked about sticking with Peter Avalon & Leva Bates’ Librarian gimmick until it got “Baron Corbin heat”. Maybe they weren’t joking, because Avalon vs. Sonny Kiss is added to The Buy In pre-show for this weekend.

Finally, Cody & Dustin Rhodes use an anecdote about Kenny Omega disrespectfully questioning the legacy of their tag team to sell the heck out of Fight for the Fallen’s main event between The Brotherhood and The Young Bucks.

Give it a watch, and check out the updated card for July 13:

  • Cody & Dustin Rhodes vs. The Young Bucks
  • Brandi Rhodes vs. Allie
  • Kenny Omega vs. CIMA
  • Kip Sabian vs. Adam “Hangman” Page
  • Lucha Bros (Pentagon Jr. & Fenix) vs. SCU (Scorpio Sky & Frankie Kazarian, w/ Christopher Daniels)
  • A pissed off Chris Jericho with a live mic
  • Joey Janela, Jimmy Havoc & Darby Allin vs. MJF, Shawn Spears & Sammy Guevara (The Buy In)
  • Sonny Kiss vs. Peter Avalon w/Leva Bates (The Buy In)
