• Cody Rhodes Reacts To Vince Russo Saying AEW Shouldn’t Appeal To The Marks

A fan recently tweeted the following to AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes:

“Vince Russo said on today’s podcast that in 3 months AEW will be looking at these ratings and they’re gonna have no choice but to adjust things. We need a product that appeals to the masses, not the marks.”

Cody replied the following to this fan:

“We are happy and our partner is happy. We overshot projections and set a record for a WM debut. This is the era of cord cutting, simulcast and dvr bumps. We are proud of how incredible the numbers have been and know we need to work hard now more than ever.”

Russo then replied the following to Cody:

“The comment I made was in the best interest of AEW. It was with 0 MALICE. I want you to succeed. But, when I was writing/producing if we had 5M viewers I wanted 10M. My goal was to have the entire WORLD watching Wrestling. I don’t think that’s a bad thing.”
