Cody Rhodes is the EVP of AEW and also one of the top stars in the company, as he has competed in several memorable matches and great segments over the years.
AEW Dynamite made its debut in October 2019 and since then has worked hard to provide an alternate product to what fans see in WWE. For the most part, they have succeeded, but there is still a lot of room for improvement.
As of late, AEW has been signing a lot of ex-WWE talent, something many fans have criticized the company for. While speaking during a recent conference call, Cody Rhodes was asked about how many more free-agents AEW can add to their roster.
Cody Rhodes stated that the company will keep adding free agents who can move the needle.
“I tell a lot of my peers in wrestling you can’t wish away good talent, especially when you get in a groove as a talent yourself. And it’s not unlike the world that Tony comes from already. The world of the NFL and football in the UK. If there’s a free agent out there that can move the needle and be something significant for us. Personally, I’m not saying this from the company’s perspective. Personally, I think you have to go after them. Does that change the landscape of the show and the roster? For sure. But that is one of the areas where, as much as things can get personal, it is business, and no one is immune from that.”
With AEW Rampage set to air this month, the company will continue to grow and sign more talents and that is unlikely to change anytime soon.
