In the last episode of Raw, a segment of Miz TV was staged in which The Miz presented Logan Paul as his partner for a future match against Rey and Dominik Mysterio.
The search for a new partner had already caused a lot of discussion in recent days, and during the promo Miz indulged in a quote from Cody Rhodes, introducing his couple with the adjective "dashing", a reference to one of the gimmicks played by Cody during his time in WWE.
Next, Edge opened a locker room challenge for WrestleMania, casting references to wrestlers like AJ Styles, Finn Bálor, Damian Priest but also Cody Rhodes via the adjective "undeniable".
