Credit: AEWCody Rhodes defeated Olympic bronze-medalist fighter Anthony Ogogo in an animosity match at AEW Double or Nothing on Sunday.Ogogo appeared to have Rhodes down for the count after landing a best uppercut. Rhodes arm was under the ropes, however, which triggered the referee to force a break on the pinfall.All Elite Wrestling @AEW #AEWDoN, Rhodes landed the Vertebreaker to put Ogogo away.The problem in between Rhodes and Ogogo started on Dynamite in March when QT Marshall and the Nightmare Factory switched on Cody and the Nightmare Family. Ogogo was amongst those who agreed Marshall in addition to Aaron Solow and Nick Comoroto.Ogogo made his presence felt in an enormous brawl, and it quickly emerged that the previous pugilist was Marshalls star pupil.After much anticipation, Ogogo made his in-ring launching on the April 14 episode of Dynamite against Cole Karter. Ogogo punched Karter so hard in the stomach that he could not continue, resulting in the referee ruling the match in Ogogos favor.Ogogo made an even larger effect a couple of weeks later following a match between Rhodes and Marshall. After Cody picked up the success, Ogogo revealed up and put Rhodes down with a punch to the gut before positioning a British flag over him.That resulted in Rhodes cutting an impassioned discount the following week on Dynamite about his pride in being American. Cody ended by stating that he would be with American Dream instead of the American Nightmare for one night just at Double or Nothing, which was his method of admiring his late daddy, “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes.While some fans were seemingly apprehensive about a USA vs. Britain story, the match was an appealing one for factors outside that nationalistic trope.Ogogo entered the bout with almost no experience in regards to actual matches, and despite that, he was installed versus among AEWs top stars on a pay-per-view stage.Ogogo had plenty to show in Sundays match, and while he didnt leave victorious, he revealed a lot of prospective and did enough to suggest he might be a significant gamer in AEW moving on.
