The feud between The Nightmare Family and The Factory is continuing with a Cody Rhodes vs. QT Marshall South Beach strap match on July 7 in Miami at AEW Road Rager.
Marshall challenged Rhodes to the strap match on tonight’s AEW Friday Night Dynamite. AEW general manager Tony Khan made the match official later on AEW’s social media accounts.
To punctuate the challenge, Marshall attacked Arn Anderson with a strap on tonight’s episode of Dynamite. Additionally, Rhodes will team with Arn Anderson’s son Brock against Marshall and Aaron Solow on next week’s Dynamite. The match will be Brock Anderson’s in-ring debut.
The issue between Rhodes’s Nightmare Family stable and Marshall’s Factory unit has stretched for three months. Their angle kicked off in earnest on the March 31 edition of Dynamite, with an exhibition match between Rhodes and Marshall. Marshall turned on Anderson and Rhodes and established The Factory on that show.
Marshall pinned Rhodes in a tag match on last week’s Dynamite. Marshall teamed with Anthony Ogogo in the win, while Rhodes partnered with Lee Johnson. A week earlier at the Double or Nothing PPV on May 30, Rhodes defeated Ogogo.
