The recently concluded Hell In A Cell was a nightmare for WWE as the event was met with widespread criticism. To make matters worse, the main event was marred with chants of “AEW”, “Refund” and more. The clash between Seth Rollins and Bray Wyatt ended in a disqualification as the defending champion proceeded to use a Sledgehammer on The Fiend.
AEW’s Cody Rhodes was asked about the chants when he was interviewed on the Joe Cronin show. He said:
“I mean when those come up, I wasn’t watching the pay-per-view, but when those come up, your phone starts blowing up and your social starts blowing up,” said Cody Rhodes. “Whenever the crowd chants something, whether it’s boring, whether it’s a promotion, whether it’s your name, it means they want to be rewarded with something. That’s just kind of when you’re in the ring wrestling 101 and we know that we want to reward them.
He admitted that it was a good feeling, but proceeded to sympathize with the wrestlers involved. He added:
“So it was, it was flattering. I wouldn’t be one to gloat about it only because I know that one of the guys in that match got concussed and this job ain’t that easy, but nevertheless whenever we hear those chants, it’s more validation that what we’re doing and what we’ve been saying about this market existing, it’s real.”
