Second match of the night… Marietta, Georgia’s own Cody Rhodes takes on Rey Mysterio. The “grotesque” one, Cody Rhodes takes to the ring first, followed by Rey Mysterio in his Captain American/Might Mouse outfit.
Rey Mysterio is fighting as he normally does, video game style, fliying all over the place and Cody Rhodes is doing his best to ground him. So far, Cody Rhode’s face, has been safely guarded by his clear mask. Cody also created an amazing moment by holding Rey up for a superplex for close to a minute before slamming him to the mat. Lots of back and forth action here, and Rey continues to go crazy.
Rey goes for the 619, but Cody catches his feet and puts a stop to that one. Cody is back in control. Rhodes removes the brace from Rey’s injured knee, but somehow Might Mouse is able to get back to the top rope once again to do a few more flips. Cody’s mask is removed and Rey hits the 619! Cody’s magnificent face is mangled even further!!!
Rey continues to go for the nose, but then a chant for the hometown hero Cody Rhodes starts up and Cody nails the Cross Rhodes and picks up his first Wrestlemania victory.
