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.”
