As long as you have a good hashtag, it seems anything is possible in pro wrestling. Just this year, we’ve seen #EltonStrong help Pretty Deadly’s Elton Prince walk on WWE SmackDown. Now the longer-running #NeckStrong campaign has paid off for Roderick Strong. With an awestruck Kingdom watching on, Roddy took to his feet and ditched his wheelchair (but not his neck brace... yet, anyway) on the Dec. 6 AEW Dynamite.
More interesting is the defiant promo Strong cut before the miracle happened. It didn’t make a ton of sense — and reminded me why Roddy’s not known for his mic work. But I digress...
Some folks already suspect Strong of being or being involved with the mysterious Devil who’s been making MJF’s life miserable. Does ranting about how he’ll no longer live with the consequences of his decisions on the same night the World champ was seemingly attacked by the Devil strengthen the case against him?
