Social Distancing Dynamite opens up with Lance Archer making his way to the ring. Footage of Archer and Roberts from last week is shown as they come to the ring. Roberts says that he has been asked to make an apology for his antics last week but he says he’ll do just that as soon as Brandi Rhodes kisses his ass.
He says that anytime someone comes inside the ringside area you enter their house and you do so at your own risk. Roberts says that a woman is great at home cooking and wiping baby’s butt. Roberts says that time is up for Cody and he can’t hide behind anyone else.
Cody drives his pickup truck into the arena and squares off with Archer! Cody goes after Roberts but that allows Archer to blindside him. They fight around ringside and Cody actually uses Archer’s own braids to choke him at one point. Cody throws a chair at Archer but he just shrugs it off and kills Cody with a Pump Kick.
Archer goes for the Blackout but Cody escapes and attempts a Cody Cutter. Archer tosses Cody aside and they stare each other down and Roberts tells him, “not now” and the heels retreat.
