Anthony Ogogo has come out of nowhere to receive a sudden push in AEW as an ally of QT Marshall. Ogogo is now lined up to wrestle Cody Rhodes at AEW’s Double or Nothing pay-per-view (PPV), coming up this Sunday, May 30, in a focus group tested battle over the American Dream.

During an interview with Metro.co.uk, Ogogo revealed that he will be wrestling at Double or Nothing with a broken rib:

“I’m sitting here now – I’m very, very open and honest, probably too open and honest… But I am who I am, I do what I do. I’ve got a broken rib right now.”

“My rib’s broken because I did a move in training this week. I did it wrong, and I broke a rib. I’m now wrestling Cody, the best wrestler in the world, with a broken rib… And that’s real, that’s not me just saying that. My rib is f***ed!”

I’ll be honest with you, Cagesiders, that’s pretty much the end of the story right there. Ogogo says he is working with a broken rib at the PPV, so you shouldn’t expect his match against Cody to be a match of the year candidate no matter how much Tony Khan hypes it up.

However, Ogogo went on to talk about his hairy balls, so I feel obliged to share that quote with you as well. I have received all of your emails, and it’s clear that the Cageside Seats readers demand to hear more stories about a wrestler’s hairy balls. So here you go:

“I watched him when I was a kid – before I had hairs on my bollocks, I was watching Cody Rhodes on TV and I was a fan of Cody Rhodes. Now, I have lots of hairs on my bollocks and I’m facing Cody at Double or Nothing. So, I’m really happy, the pressure’s on him.”

That’s right, Anthony Ogogo is really happy to have lots of hairs on his bollocks. But it’s not all about balls for Ogogo:

“To be fair to Cody, he fought for me this time a couple of years ago, pre-Double or Nothing. I’d just retired from boxing, and we were talking, we were both kinda flirting with each other...I didn’t wanna say to him, ‘Yes I wanna do this’, and he didn’t wanna say to me, ‘Yes I wanna sign you’...He wanted to sign me, and I wanted to do it – but I didn’t wanna show him my tits before going on a date!”

That concludes this incredible update on Anthony Ogogo’s broken rib, hairy balls, and tits that cannot compare to Vince McMahon’s.

UPDATE: Ogogo now says he does not have a broken rib. We’re hoping his balls are still hairy, though.
