One of the most exciting moments in AEW history happened last year at Fyter Fest, when Shawn Spears hit Cody Rhodes with a bullet in the head on an unprotected chair. Cody was left in a pool of blood.

Cody talked about the incident on this week’s AEW Unrestricted podcast beginning by explaining that if Hollywood action movies are able to perform seemingly violent stunts in a safe way, then professional wrestling should be able to do so too Here’s a text of his reasoning, courtesy of Wrestling Inc:

“Wrestling is violent. People are being hurt. This is not ballet. I’ve heard all these things now, I don’t want anyone to be hurt. Art is making it seem like we are hurting each other, and then we can go home. That’s why we shake hands again and again if we stick to the same TV standards. And movies, which some people want to subject us to those same standards, we have similar reach. We have global penetration and popular culture.

Well, if Captain America can swing his shield around and hit people on the head with it, nobody is crying with gunshots Nobody blames this modern generation for anything they did in 1990 with Mick [Foley] and Rock and [Kane] Shamrock This is not our fault so I wanted to take the chair shots in the head back to the boys, but I wanted to do it safely.  »

Leaving aside the confusion behind the phrase « take chair shots back to the boys, » it looks like Cody primarily wanted to rely on the magic of the movie to safely execute an exciting moment. You can check out the full interview to hear Cody describe the entire process behind the chair spoofing, and how Even Tony Khan wanted to take the chair up for audition purposes.

So how did it go wrong? Cody blames himself, saying he told Spears to swing from the side that allowed the top bar of the chair, which was not circumvented, to erase Cody’s skull. In order to do so safely, the chair had to swing over the head:

« In the end, he sanded the chair, it was sheet metal [and] it was nice my advice to [Spears] swinging from the side is what created – he swung to the fences, but the back strap, the top bar is what ate the back of My head so I knew it got worse, but I was like, “Oh man, it was such a wonderful moment. It was a great moment. >

Cody recounts how Tony Khan and John Moxley chewed Spears over the immediate aftermath of the accident, and scolded him for swinging the chair from the wrong position. Rhodes does his best in this interview to blame himself, because he’s the one who directed Spears on how to swing the chair.


Given that another planned place with a wheelchair veered between Matt Hardy and Sami Guevara three months ago, resulting in a significant blood loss, it would probably be best to steer clear of these dangerous places involving the wrestler’s head


What do you think of Cody’s theory that if something could be done safely in movies, then it could be possible in wrestling as well?
