• Cody Rhodes Says AEW Isn’t Capable Of Having A Bad Show
During a recent interview on Fite in Focus, AEW EVP & current TNT Champion Cody Rhodes talked about All Elite Wrestling’s upcoming ‘Battle of the Belts’ special event.
Here’s what Cody had to say about this TNT special:
“I am really excited that Tony named it Battle of the Belts, because it’s right there in the name. I disliked this in wrestling, this is really across the board, not speaking anything specifically, when a belt has been tarnished and they have lost to their value.
If you talk to wrestlers, we love our belts. Most wrestlers who are worth their salt have their own display of the belts they have ever won and it’s a significant thing. No different than Hollywood when you win an Academy Award. It’s unique in that sense. And him naming it Battle of the Belts and put the emphasis on the Titles.
“I am not sure if all Titles will be defended in this very first TNT special. But we do know that with just that in mind, it being the very first special that we are doing as part of the new contract, knowing us, me, Kenny, The Bucks and Tony, that’s not one we can leave to, we are not capable, we are not able at this point to have a B+ show.
Everything has to be A+. And that’s something I am looking forward to, that we can still make these new memories and we are going to continue to make them.
I am excited about Battle of the Belts because it reminds me of Clash of the Champions. It’s a special and big things happen on nights like that. We are not capable of never having a big night but we are capable of making our nights bigger.”
