Cody Rhodes released a statement and noted that he’s going to be the Executive Vice President for All Elite Wrestling.
You can read his statement below:
“I feel so damn lucky. I believe that more than talent… more than chance… work ethic will guide me where I’d like to go.
To be Executive Vice President for our new venture, and to be flanked by Matt and Nick and a few familiar names sharing that position: this is my dream job.
I can’t think of a time when so many of wrestling’s top free agents all opted out of the road usually traveled and instead wanting to start something new. I am excited to see AEW into existence.
What’s old isn’t new – what’s new is new. Perception isn’t reality – reality is reality. Fans first.”
With that being said, Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting that Jacksonville Jaguars co-owner Tony Khan is President of All Elite Wrestling.
Old School WWF Legend Chris Jericho recently fueled rumors of his involvement with All Elite Wrestling when he thanked Tony Khan for helping him get tickets to a recent NFL game.
According to Dave Meltzer, Jericho isn’t current signed to All Elite Wrestling but he’s on their radar.
Speaking of Jericho, he’ll defend the IWGP Intercontinental Championship against Tetsuya Naito this Friday At New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Wrestle Kingdom 13 event.
