CODY vs. DARBY ALLIN
Darby comes out with someone wearing a Cody mask and Darby takes the mask and tears it in half. Darby clearly is intense for this one. Cody’s music hits, and out comes Arn Anderson! It looks like Arn is accompanying Cody as a mentor of sorts, and announced officially as the head coach of The Nightmare Family.
