It wasn’t MJF that interrupted Cody Rhodes on AEW Dynamite but Jake “The Snake” Roberts.

The wrestling legend told Rhodes that he was tired of hearing him cry and bitch in the ring. “He whipped you like a dog,” said Roberts. “That’s why I’m here. I’m not here to praise you, I’m here to save you.” He then informed Rhodes that he has been hired by a client. “It’s been 20 years for me to get clean and get right, but by God, I earned it. If you think for one minute that I’m going to be a nice boy and play right, you’ve got another thing coming.”

Roberts would go on to say that he’ll be on the outside of the ring while his client takes on Rhodes. “I’m not in AEW to take the whole pie. Just your share.” Before he left and turned his back on Rhodes, Roberts told him that he never turns his back to someone he respects or is afraid of.
