Brodie Lee upset some people in WWE when he seemed to parody Vince McMahon during an Exalted One video promo on AEW Dynamite.
While speaking Busted Open Radio, Cody Rhodes addressed Brodie Lee’s video promos. The AEW EVP said that he doesn’t know what the original plan was for Brodie Lee’s videos, but Vince McMahon’s name won’t be spoken on AEW Dynamite.
Cody Rhodes owes a lot to Vince McMahon as he got his start in WWE. Brodie Lee’s promos aren’t a spoof The Chairman Of The Board according to Cody. Let’s just see how things develop.
“So I can never tell you the original plan and I don’t even know if there was an original plan and I will say, very unlikely on AEW, you’ll ever hear the name of Vince McMahon said and if you do hear me say it in interviews and in general, I always speak very highly of Vince, because, well A, he’s Vince McMahon and B, I was a WWE guy to start. I didn’t come from anywhere else. I came through their feeder system and they were the house that built me so, when it comes to some of the parallels, I don’t wanna be vague or coy with your question.”
“When it comes to some of the parallels between Brodie’s style of leadership, there are unique parallels but I don’t think it’s particularly a spoof on Vince McMahon and maybe it’s because we’ll see how it develops in the next few weeks.”
“I think Brodie just has a very power boss, very animal kingdom, kind of social Darwinism-type approach to the Dark Order, and I think that’s all in line with perhaps some of Vince’s quirks but, it’s not an outright spoof on the legendary Mr. McMahon. Not outright.”
Vince McMahon is a very complex and unique individual. Brodie Lee’s video vignettes seem to shine a light at some of the things that makes working with Vince McMahon such an unusual experience.
