Wrestlemania 27 PPV coverage: Cody Rhodes vs. Rey Mysterio
Apr 3, 2011 - by Steve Gerweck
* We see a promo for WWE Tough Enough, which premieres after Raw tomorrow night.
* We see Atlanta out doors. Cole tells The King he is getting ready for tonight match. The King says that Cole is a moron.
We see the footage of Cody Rhodes breaking his nose, and yes, Rhodes is still wearing the face mask.
Mysterio goes after Rhodes before he removes his ring jacket. Rhodes uses the protective mask as a weapon early on. Alabama slam by Rhodes, but only a two count. From the second rope, Rhodes superplexed Mysterio to the mat. Rhodes held up Mysterio for several seconds before finishing the maneuver. Light chant of “Cody, Cody” is uttered by the fans. Like the first the match, the heel controlled the action early on, leaving the crowd pretty flat.
Mysterio goes for the 619, but Rhodes caught his legs mid air. Rhodes removes Mysterio knee brace. Mysterio is able to remove Cody’s protective face mask, and then hits the 619. Mysterio kicks Rhodes in the face! On the outside, Rhodes grabs the knee brace and nails Mysterio with it. Cross Rhodes and Rhodes wins at 11:57.
After the match, Cole and The King jaw at each other. Mathews says Snoop Dogg is here. Snoop is talking to Teddy Long backstage. Long has lined up some talent for Snoop, so he says let the dogs out! Regal comes out and does a rap. Phoenix and Khali sing, but Snoop is not impressed. Zack Ryder sings, but he is taken out by “Rowdy” Roddy Piper. Masters and Yoshi sing “we will rock you.” That doesn’t impress Snoop earlier. Hornswoggle comes out, but Long says Hornswoggle can’t talk. Long says it time to go, and they leave. Hornswoggle then signs with the Bella Twins dancing behind him.
First secret word tonight is comb.
