On this week’s Fight For The Fallen edition of AEW Dynamite, it has been announced that Cody will defend his TNT Championship against Sonny Kiss.
This has led to some derogatory remarks towards The American Nightmare on social media, as to why he would defend his title belt against Kiss in the first place.
Kiss is gender fluid, and whilst he wrestles men in AEW he makes no secret of his sexuality, and is a strong part of his character which has recently made him even more popular alongside Joey Janela.
Cody was quick to respond on social media, saying that anyone who doesn’t like his choice of opponent can kiss his ass.
This response is well in-line with the company’s ethos of being inclusive, which can be seen with the likes of Nyla Rose being transgender and being the second AEW Women’s Champion.
