Notes on Jeff Cobb and Bully Ray

Apr 9, 2022 - by Steve Gerweck

– New IWGP Tag Team Champions were crowned during last night’s Hyper Battle event.

Jeff Cobb and The Great-O-Khan defeated YOSHI-HASHI and Hirooki Goto to win the IWGP Tag Team Championship for the first time. Cobb pinned YOSHI-HASHI following the Tour of the Islands. This ends YOSHI-HASHI and Goto’s run with the titles after over 95 days, defeating Dangerous Tekkers (Taichi and Zack Sabre Jr.) back on January 4.

– During an edition of Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray commented on Cody Rhodes’ promo from the RAW after Wrestlemania 38…

“When it comes to the younger fans – Cody has a very big vocabulary. Cody will use a lot of big words, a lot of words that we might even have to look up the dictionary just to get the definition. I think with the WWE Universe, Cody should dumb it down a little bit. Keep it very family-friendly, kid-friendly. In AEW, an older crowd, a smarter more sophisticated crowd may be. Use words that the kids don’t have to ask their parents and go, ‘Hey, what does that mean.”

    Or…and I’m just spitballing here…a large roster can contain different types of characters that appeal to different types of fans. Not everyone has to be pitched to 10-year-olds, and more “sophisticated” WWE fans might appreciate at least one person who doesn’t “dumb it down a little bit.” And…again, this may be crazy talk, but bear with me…kids engaging with their parents and learning new words isn’t a bad thing.
