• Kenny Omega Says Cody Rhodes Wanted A War With WWE, Not Him & The Young Bucks
During a recent interview on Wrestling Observer Radio, former AEW World Champion Kenny Omega talked about the departure of Cody Rhodes from All Elite Wrestling.
Omega revealed during this interview that among the AEW Executive Vice Presidents, Cody was the one that wanted a war with WWE, not him and The Young Bucks.
Below is what Kenny said:
“That’s sort of where The Bucks and I differed. We never wanted to go to war with Vince and WWE. We just wanted to give people an option and get us a platform for our brand of storytelling and our style of wrestling.
When Cody had his way of going about things, I wasn’t sure how to follow up with that, nor was I interested. There was Kenny doing his thing, The Bucks doing their thing, and the Codyverse over there, doing whatever it is that he does and then there’s the stuff that Tony does.
Eventually, as a lot of fans now know, essentially, it’s Tony’s show. Of course, he’s always going to listen to our advice and take our suggestions to heart, but AEW is very much Tony’s thing and baby. We’re there to support it in any way that we can.
It’s very possible that this current version of AEW wasn’t a good fit for Cody and to Cody.
To me, he is one of the original four and there is always going to be a place for him. You saw it in his ladder match with Sammy. He’s got incredible utility and he’s able to help our younger talent. It’s nothing from an in-ring perspective. There are no issues there.
If I had a clear cut answer for you guys, I would love to tell you. Again, The Bucks and I, we weren’t in this for the war. All the guys and gals in WWE doing their thing, always wishing for the best for those guys.”

After his debut in 1990, he joined the famous AAA (Asistencia Asesoría y Administración) promotion in his home country of Mexico, where he became a regular star during the 90s.
North American wrestling fans will mainly remember Super Caló for his time in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling from 1996 until 1999.
Nowadays he’s semi-retired, which means he’s still wrestling every now and then for special occasions.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUPER CALÓ!
