Cody Rhodes Explains Why AEW Fight For The Fallen Was So Long

AEW Fight For The Fallen was night full of pro wrestling and they ran rather long. In fact, the evening’s closing promo from the Young Bucks needed to be cut short. This might be inductive of what we can expect from AEW.

While speaking to the media following AEW Fight For The Fallen, Cody Rhodes addressed the event’s length. He also explained how their closing announcement to the crowd comes from something they had to do in ROH to send the crowd home happy.

“It’s not a spoiler necessarily, but the show on TNT will be two hours. So we’re a little bit backwards where we want to do these mega events before we do a weekly show. For the mega events the times are different.”

“So I guess the way we look at it is that we have all these guys and all these girls that we’ve signed. We don’t wanna do one-minute matches — we believe in them. We want guys to go out there and play their music, that’s why we hired them. We’re not going to teach you anything, that’s Dean Malenko’s job, that’s Jerry Lynn’s job.”

“So it was a little lengthy this evening, but here’s my take on it: at the end of the night nobody left. I’ll tell you the truth if anyone went to the Ring Of Honor shows that The Bullet Club or The Elite was on at the end of the night, that’s what started all of this. Us being in there going ‘what do we do? how do we send them home happy?'” Whether Marty [Scrull] sings or Kenny says something, we came up with 1,000 things, but that genuine feeling is a genuine connection with the people it’s not even a marketing tactic, man. AEW was everyone who was in the arena tonight.”

Cody Rhodes said he would like to return to Daily’s Place when it’s cooler, but they will likely be back this time next year around the same time. Therefore, Jacksonville fans can probably expect another late and hot evening of All Elite Wrestling, hopefully, it never rains on them.
