– Above is the latest NWA video featuring the lead-up to the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Cody Rhodes defeating Juice Robinson for the IWGP United States Championship at NJPW Fighting Spirit Unleashed in Long Beach, California. We also see some of Cody’s post-match press conference where he talked about his upcoming 2-out-of-3 falls title match against Nick Aldis at NWA 70. Cody also spoke about how this is a time when there are more wrestlers with no fear when it comes to working.
“There are more wrestlers – men and women – with no fear than ever before,” Rhodes said. “That is the most power we can possibly have, when we’re not afraid. When we are not afraid of somebody who wasn’t in the ring telling us about what we did in the ring. We know, we know.”
