Eventually, Rhodes landed the Vertebreaker to put Ogogo away.
The concern between Rhodes and Ogogo started on Dynamite in March when QT Marshall and the Nightmare Factory turned on Cody and the Nightmare Family. Ogogo was among those who sided with Marshall together with Aaron Solow and Nick Comoroto.

That led to Rhodes cutting an impassioned promo the following week on Dynamite about his pride in being American. Cody ended by declaring that he would be with American Dream instead of the American Nightmare for one night only at Double or Nothing, which was his method of paying tribute to his late dad, “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes.
While some fans were apparently worried about a USA vs. Britain story, the match was an intriguing one for reasons outside that nationalistic trope.
Ogogo entered the bout with almost no experience in regards to real matches, and despite that, he was installed versus one of AEWs leading stars on a pay-per-view phase.
Ogogo had plenty to show in Sundays match, and while he didnt leave triumphant, he showed a lot of potential and did enough to suggest he could be a major gamer in AEW progressing
Ogogo made his presence felt in a massive brawl, and it quickly ended up being evident that the former pugilist was Marshalls star pupil.
After much anticipation, Ogogo made his in-ring debut on the April 14 episode of Dynamite against Cole Karter. Ogogo punched Karter so hard in the stomach that he could not continue, resulting in the referee ruling the match in Ogogos favor.
Ogogo made an even larger impact a number of weeks later following a match in between Rhodes and Marshall. After Cody got the success, Ogogo appeared and put Rhodes down with a punch to the gut before putting a British flag over him.
Cody Rhodes defeated Olympic bronze-medalist fighter Anthony Ogogo in a grudge match at AEW Double or Nothing on Sunday.
Ogogo appeared to have Rhodes down for the count after landing an ideal uppercut. Rhodes arm was under the ropes, though, which triggered the referee to force a break on the pinfall.
