Cody Rhodes reveals details on AEW’s TV show

Cody Rhodes

AEW Vice President Cody Rhodes recently had an interview with Chris Van Vliet ahead of the Double Or Nothing event where he revealed some interesting details about their future.

Cody talked about the recent announcement of their TV Deal and revealing the details of their planned program, he said that it will be a two-hour live show:

“It’s really likely the show is going to be 2 hours. That’s the sweet spot. In terms of the schedule, we’ll find out probably within the next few months for sure. Another thing that is really cool is you’ll be able to find out per market where we’re going to be all around; this isn’t going to be something that is just stationed in one spot. This is a touring brand. We’re really, no pun intended, going all in on the concept of it and it’s so special because we aren’t doing a live event system so when we come we’re bringing our absolute best from match quality to star quality. I feel like I’m giving away a lot here. Did Tony already say it? It’s 2 hours, live.”

Continuing on the topic, the former WWE Star revealed that the AEW World Heavyweight Championship will be unveiled at the show this Saturday.

Apart from this Cody Rhodes also commented on his match with Dustin Rhodes at the show, if he is in good terms with WWE and more. You can check out his full interview in the video below:

    I have a very bad feeling that AEW is going to be pretty good wrestling and absolutely nothing else. If wins and loses matter, and I’m not saying they shouldn’t, then where is the heat if two guy are only having a match because each of them have a record of 6-3? Where’s the personal issue?

    They didn’t say tapings. They said live

    It really is going to depend on the contracts individual talents have as to whether it is a good idea to have no house shows or not.
    From what it seems, some talent have exclusive contracts and some don’t.

    If the bulk of the talent have non exclusive deals, then there is absolutely no need for house shows as using other promotions to extend storylines is actually a great tool to have.
    If the bulk of the talent have exclusive contracts, then it makes sense to have shows that are at least similar to house shows, especially with only one show a week on TV.

    With only one show a week and irregular PPVs, no house shows will really limit peoples chances to go see the events live.

    While WWE maybe goes overboard with house shows, this does at least allow people who cannot attend TV tapings and PPVs a chance to see a live wrestling show featuring their favourite WWE guys.

    Well you did just find out that they’re only doing TV tapings, and no House shows. Sounds good to me

  • Darrin Tyler

    That didn’t tell me anything.
