Cody Shares Image Of New Piece Of Gear With Interesting Design ElementsDecember 29, 2018
Cody is the current IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion and will defend the title at Wrestle Kingdom 13 against Juice Robinson. Wrestle Kingdom is the WrestleMania of New Japan Pro Wrestling and like with WrestleMania many superstars get new gear made for the event. Some get specially themed gear for a special entrance or just new ring gear for their match.
With Cody possibly wrestling in New Japan for the last time for a while Cody shared an image on Twitter of a new weight belt he will wear for his match with Juice on January 4th. Cody posted the following image on Twitter but has since deleted the tweet.
The image sees a new weight belt in the colors and specialized font of the Jacksonville Jaguars. The belt also says “Won’t Back Down”, which is the name of a Tom Petty song which they play at many Jaguar games.
The significance of this is the fact that all rumors indicate that along with The Young Bucks, Cody will be starting a new wrestling promotion called ‘All Elite Wrestling’ and it will be funded by the Khan family who owns the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The timing of this is very interesting as The Elite are all teasing some possible announcement coming on January 1st. This Monday’s episode of Being The Elite may be a very interesting one as if it drops on Monday per usual, then that would be the day before January 1st.
Also, Cody and Brandy were recently spotted in the owner’s box at a recent Jacksonville Jaguars game. What do you guys think? Is this an actual tease for things to come or is Cody just trolling us all yet again as he loves to try and swerve the fans and the media?
