Could Nia Jax go to AEW? We’ll have to wait and see. AEW EVP and performer Cody Rhodes doesn’t take part in booking for the shows as AEW President Tony Khan had taken away the power from the EVPs but the fans think that Rhodes buries talent and he recently addressed the matter.
Cody Rhodes breaks his silence on the claims
The American Nightmare recently spoke to Monsters and Critics Reality about his position in AEW. He addressed the idea that he “buries” talent in the process.
Here is what he said:
“Well, that’s technically my number one job at AEW as the Executive Vice President of Talent. That’s the most important thing I already know that Bryan Danielson is famous, I already know that CM Punk is amazing in the ring, that Kenny Omega can have a five-star match, I know that. It’s our job to show you who in five years, or three years, will be leading the charge and if you just look at some of the homegrown types with Ricky Starks, and MJF, and Private Party, and Lee Johnson, I mean, I could go on and on. It’s vastly important.”
“There’s this online outlook on me [that suggests] that all I do is bury talent. Gosh, I feel like I spent three years introducing talent and I wrestled a pay-per-view against an absolute rookie. That’s the job though. I love that part. Darby is somebody who’s just blowing everyone away. I’m glad people get to see that side of Ricky and I think he will be, too, because Ricky presents himself as so confident and suave. But you can’t forget that Ricky is new into our industry. He showed up for the TNT open challenge. He didn’t win the match, but he won himself a job, and now, TV wrestling is far different than independent wrestling, and seeing Ricky navigate that space and emerge on such a level that he has — I’m very proud of both those guys Darby and Ricky.”
“Yeah, when he was standing in the ring for the open challenge — so much. realness happens on Dynamite that people may not realize, but Arn [Anderson] just whispered in my ear, and he said, ‘He looks better than some of our guys, and he wasn’t wrong. Then the next day, he was one of our guys. You know, Tony [Khan] always has the foresight to see somebody coming and Ricky was undeniable.”
