WWE superstar Cody Rhodes claims to the be the best in the world by a large margin. Also, Joey Janela was on fire after a stunt went wrong.
Cody Rhodes: I’m The Best “By A Large Margin”
When Cody Rhodes requested and was granted his release, many saw it as a positive. He was not being used properly and had somewhat of a ridiculous gimmick.
Rhodes shocked when we learned that he had not re-signed with AEW like many of his friends. We all figured it was only a matter of time until he signed on the dotted line.
Instead, he had a handshake deal with AEW’s Tony Khan. Then, news leaked that he left AEW and re-signed with WWE .
Since then, Rhodes has been booked as a face on RAW. In fact, some could say he is the top face on any brand.
While speaking to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated , Rhodes made it clear that he is the best wrestler around. And, not by any small margin.
“I think I’m the best wrestler in the world,” said Rhodes. “And I think it’s by a large margin.”
“That upsets a lot of people, but I don’t mean it to draw ire. This is all I do. I’m not in charge.”
“I’m here to hone my craft, build my body, and win matches. Every week, I have to be better. That’s the ultimate clarity for me.”
Cody Rhodes Ready To Prove He Is The Best
He continued by comparing his two stints in WWE. So far, the second one is treating him like a future world champion.
“I’m on the flagship show,” said Rhodes. “Look at the pyro and grandeur.”
“Hats off to Kevin Dunn and his team for taking the ‘American Nightmare’ and expanding upon it. I know I must be better every week.”
“That’s the only way I can stay the best in the world. So, week to week, I’m putting myself under a microscope.”
“Go ahead and put all the microscopes in the world on me. I want FOX to come calling.”
“I did it for Turner Media and I got a great education at my last spot. Bring it on; I want it all.”
Rhodes will look to end his feud with Seth Rollins at Hell in a Cell. As for the future, many see Rhodes as someone who takes one of the world titles currently in possession of Roman Reigns.
Joey Janela On Fire
Since Joey Janela is no longer part of AEW , he is free to wrestle where he wants. Naturally, he is back to entertaining fans at GCW.
At their Saturday pay per view, Janela took on Drew Parker. Everything seemed to be going fine until the end.
Janela lit his boot on fire and then hit a Flaming Superkick on Parker. The problem was the fire did not go out as planned.

Trying to go to bed but it still won’t go out…
I already spent $36 at the vending machine on 7 bottles of water…
Tried WebMD too…
Any suggestions? pic.twitter.com/6J0a6jyy72

He tried to get the boot off as the referee poured water. So, more water bottles were tossed in the ring to help put out the flame.
Eventually, the matter was resolved. Although, Janela did burn his foot due to the spot.
It seems Janela was lucky. This could have gone more worse and caused a visit to the hospital.
