Warhorse is one of the most popular stars in the US indies in 2020, approaching 300 days as the IWTV Independent Wrestling Champion, who has been challenging Cody daily almost since the open challenge was first announced. Warhorse’s challenge has been amplified by his legions of fans around the world, making Warhorse one of the most popular candidates amongst US indie fans, with the hashtag #CodyFearsWarhorse trending at various points.

Is Arn teasing the fans or is he being serious? It seems the popular indie star’s presence is something that both Arn Anderson and Cody Rhodes are aware of, and now that Arn has mentioned his name, it will only increase Warhorse’s pressure to get into not only an AEW ring, but inside Cody’s head, until the match finally happens.
