Rey Mysterio vs Cody Rhodes

Rey Mysterio is Captain America this year. Rey charges Cody and gets backdropped to the apron, but comes back in with a flying headscissors. Rey with a kick to the head but Cody with a spinning flying forearm. Cody tries to take the knee brace off, but Rey slips away so Cody whips Rey hard into the corner instead. Cody gets a springboard enziguiri for 2, then locks Rey in a Sabu clutch, grinding into Rey’s nose with a crossface. Rey fights his way out and goes for another flying headscissors, but Cody blocks and hangs Rey on the ropes, kicks him in the gut, and hits an Alabama Slam for 2. There’s an audible “let’s go Cody” chant going as Cody puts the boots to Rey some more. Cody puts Rey on the second rope and gets the Boss Man Drop, then chokes Rey with his boot. Cody does a nerve hold that looks like he’s massaging Rey’s back, but Rey slips out again and goes up top. Cody comes up and headbutts him and picks Rey up for a very delayed superplex and they crash down hard. There’s that Cody chant again as he covers Rey for 2. Cody goes for Crossrhodes, but Rey reverses and dumps Cody to the floor and follows with a baseball slide, he misses with a second one but recovers right away with a flying headscissors into the apron. They go back in and Rey hits a Thesz Press from the top, then a bridging O’Connor Roll for 2. Rey leaps off the second rope to try something, but Cody catches him and hits a wheelbarrow suplex for 2. Rey with a springboard flying headscissors then drops Cody into position and goes for the 619, but Cody catches him and dumps him. Cody catapults Rey into the middle rope and covers for 2, then goes after the knee brace again. This time he gets it, but Rey hits a moonsault for 2 and pulls the mask off. Rey gets Cody in position and hits the 619 and comes off the top rope, Cody blocks the move but kicks Cody in the face for 2. Rey puts Cody’s mask on and hits a series of running headbutts with the mask, then goes up top for a diving headbutt that only gets 2. The Cody chant is getting louder, and Cody grabs the knee brace from ringside and cracks Rey in the face with it as he tries a dive, then hits the CrossRhodes for the win

Winner: Cody Rhodes

Cody quickly covers his face with the mask and pushes the camera away as he heads to the back.
