• Cody Rhodes Involved In War Of Words With A Fan Calling AEW An “Abomination”

While AEW has a lot of fans, it also has people who don’t appreciate its existence in the pro wrestling world.

AEW wrestler and EVP, Cody Rhodes, is frequently seen educating fans about the positive effects of AEW on the wrestling world, if they’re trying to be negative about the company.

On Tuesday, FITE TV’s Twitter account posted a replay of All In, and called it the “wrestling event that started it all.”

A fan replied the following to the tweet:

“Ah yes, the start of the crime that has been perpetrated on professional wrestling. This birthed the abomination that is AEW. A dark day indeed.”

Cody Rhodes replied the following to him:

“I mean this day bettered the wrestling economy and QOL standards for an entire industry, so no matter which way you shake it…a great day in our history.

(Not unlike the days Dream had those 3 initials on your mask white hot and fans got better wrestling and the boys got rich)”

The fan then said that it has been good for The Young Bucks and their friends, but the company’s positive effects on the pro wrestling world are yet to be seen.

“And we’ll see what the long term economic impact is. Certainly good for the Bucks SoCal friends but the industry overall? Remains to be seen.”

Rhodes responded:


It’s already been seen. Every company has had to up their financial commitment, duration, and QOL elements in their contracts.

Wrestlers and their families like to eat and expand their target audience from 1 promoter to millions of fans.

It’s the best time to be a fan.”

The fan then told Rhodes that he was looking “silly” by trying to defend AEW on Twitter, and he should’ve told him to “f**k off or something.”

Rhodes replied:

“Educating > cursing out people

It’s the holidays.”

At the end of the conversation, the fan said that he touched Rhodes’ nerve, and stood by his statement.

Rhodes replied:

“We have grown tenfold in global penetration, social Nielsen’s, we received an extension from our partner in the space. don’t mistake somebody’s entertainment podcast for facts. Everything I’m saying is documented. The sky is blue, that shouldn’t offend you. Watch & you’ll love it”
