Cody Rhodes will not be taking shots at NXT

Cody Rhodes, who is the Executive Vice President of All Elite Wrestling, understands the business and also the competition that WWE will be giving them.



Rhodes spoke on the All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite conference call and revealed that Kenny Omega was in character when he was taking shots at NXT.

Cody’s father Dusty Rhodes helped NXT in many ways and so Cody Rhodes won’t be bashing NXT. He wants to focus on AEW and what it can offer as a product instead of focusing on what NXT does.

“Well, I know that my father was rather instrumental in bringing the developmental brand up from the OVW-like situation or the FCW situation that I was in as a trainer, and making it more of a brand. You’ll never hear me disparage NXT. There’s a locker room full of my friends over there and literally if any of you have done the Performance Center tour, you’re going to happen in front of my dad’s boots. I think Kenny was just having a bit of fun and it was something much in character that’s been going on with Being The Elite. I have nothing but good things to say about the developmental brand, and their success they’ve had, and their continued success.”

The Wednesday Night Wars will begin on October 2nd and fans cannot wait to see which show comes out on top.
