- Above is episode 2 ("Level Up") of All Us from Cody's YouTube channel. In the video, Cody noted matches should be rolling out week-by-week for the upcoming September 1 event in Chicago. He toyed with the idea of not giving out any matches at all, but decided against it. They also profile MJF and Cody comments on his G1 Special IWGP Heavyweight Championship match against Kenny Omega.
"I love proving the fans I have, right. I adore it," Cody said. "Those who have jumped on this bandwagon, nothing makes me happier, but the only thing that's close is proving people wrong. And there's this whole perception of me that I'm not a 'wrestler's wrestler,' that I'm not a 'bell-to-bell guy.' I think we've moved on from the ex-WWE thing or just Dusty's son. I put the referee stripes on at 15, I started getting paid professionally do to this at 19. My body of work exists for a reason, I last, I endure. And this is one of those matches where you can stand out and you can last. I can't think of a more fitting tribute to my career than being the guy who defeats Kenny Omega. I mean he finally got it! 'No way does the IWGP Heavyweight title change hands!' But it does. Because of me."
