In a recent WWE segment, AJ Styles pulled off a clever ruse during his retirement promo by attacking Cody Rhodes, sending a powerful message to the SmackDown roster. Styles initially met Nick Aldis backstage to request TV time to discuss his future. During the show’s final moments, he made his way to the ring, hinting at hanging up his boots temporarily. However, the situation quickly escalated as Cody entered to bid farewell, only to be blindsided by Styles.

Discussing the segment on Wrestling’s Smack Talk podcast, Mantell acknowledged that while some sharp-eyed fans saw through the storyline, the angle was effectively executed. He noted that while AJ Styles excelled in the ring, his mic skills were not his strongest suit. Despite this, the dramatic turn of events on screen managed to charm the audience and boost the angle.

The upcoming episodes of SmackDown promise an intense confrontation between Cody Rhodes and AJ Styles, setting the stage for a compelling rivalry. As fans anticipate the aftermath of Styles’ ambush, all eyes are on Cody’s response to the attack on the blue brand.
