• “AEW doesn’t happen if Cody didn’t leave WWE on his own accord” – Cody Rhodes’ Sister

During a recent interview on Busted Open Radio, Teil Rhodes talked about how her brother Cody Rhodes played an important role in the creation of AEW.

Here’s what she said:

“Absolutely. People can have their own opinions, but AEW doesn’t happen if Cody didn’t leave (WWE) on his own accord, make his little list, and throw himself into the fire.

There are a lot of other pieces that had to come together too, and obviously Tony Khan being the kingpin of all that momentum that these guys had built together and separate. But none of this happens without Cody leaving.

I cried when he told me he was done done. We had talked about it a lot. I sat in the car and I cried because I thought ‘he wanted to be a World Champion. That was always his goal and it’s over’.”

Teil also talked about Cody’s time in Ring Of Honor Wrestling, and how ROH didn’t want to push harder and try to become a competition to WWE.

Here’s what she said:

“[ROH] had the capital and Cody really talked fondly about that period because they gave them all a lot of creative freedom that had been missing. But they were just kind of, I mean, I don’t know.

My guess is they were kind of happy with where they were at in like that niche in the business, and they weren’t looking to elevate to that next level competition wise.”
