• Top AEW Wrestler Wants To Beat Sting
AEW EVP & Wrestler Cody Rhodes, the son of the late Old School WWF/NWA Legend Dusty Rhodes and brother of WWF/WCW Veteran Goldust aka Dustin Rhodes, was recently interviewed by the New York Post, in which he stated that he really wants to wrestle WCW Legend Sting, who joined All Elite Wrestling a few months ago.
But will we see them in an actual wrestling match or could this be some sort of a cinematic style match, similar to how WWE produced the John Cena vs. “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt & The Undertaker vs. AJ Styles matches at last year’s WrestleMania, is the big question.
Here’s what Cody said about the topic:
“To me, the cinematic matches, they really don’t have a current definition, I’ve seen the Stadium Stampede. I’ve seen the Boneyard. I’ve seen various different ways to present cinematic.
And really cinematic just means with different camera cuts.
It can mean a lot of things, but ask me that question again in a few months because I want the opportunity to stand across from the Stinger and I think he knows that.
It’s almost kind of itching at me under my skin that if there is somebody I wanted to beat, it’s the face of TNT’s hottest period and run.
That character is so damn magical and special.
I want people to think he’s just that all the time, that’s who he is. He’s just walking around face painted, the long coat because that’s how I see him.
When he walks through the back, the common area right before you get to the go position where my office is, where Tony’s office is, there is the common area and when he walks through there it changes the mood.
Every local who might be working ‘Dark’ that night, guy who is chomping away, then when you see him he really brings this great presence.
That alone is really invaluable and the fact that he’s on TV and we’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg with I think what Sting is capable of.”
