• Cody Rhodes Addresses Rumors Of Tension Between AEW EVPs
During a recent media call, Sean Ross Sapp asked Cody Rhodes about the rumors of tension between AEW EVPs (him, Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks).
Here’s what Cody had to say:
“When I heard that story was floating around, it is the things I chopped up as…we’ve been very successful, AEW, and with NXT and the Wednesday Night Wars, it created a lot of anger and I understand there is a lot of hardcore NXT and WWE fans out there and that’s why those stories don’t surprise me.
People need to cling to something and as sexy as that story is, I talk to Matt and Nick every day, I talk to Kenny very often, I support their projects fully and they’ve been supportive of all my projects.
We would not be able to put this show on the air, Tony is the man and he’s the boss, but we wouldn’t be able to put the show on the air if the four of us were not functioning as one team.
Unfortunately, it’s not very sexy to say, but there is no truth to that. We’ll remain one team.”
