Cody Rhodes is one of the top stars in the company and has been one of the mainstays of AEW television since day one. He is also a prominent figure backstage in the company and ensures the product is as good as it can be. It seems he compared himself to his father as well.
For the past few months, Cody Rhodes has been on the receiving end of a lot of boos from fans. Due to this, many have expressed their desire to have Cody Rhodes turn heel.
This included instances where fans said the r-word to Cody Rhodes on numerous occasions during a show. It only got worse from there as there was outrage after Cody Rhodes defeated Sammy Guevara for the TNT Championship during the Christmas edition of AEW Rampage.
While seeing with Fite TV, Cody Rhodes talked about making his way to AEW and added that his current job in AEW is similar to what his father Dusty Rhodes did back in WCW.
”Tony Khan’s picture of wrestling returning to TNT. For me, this is the wildest thing you could possibly hear. We have an opportunity to be on TNT in the WarnerMedia network and of course, on FITE and all these areas where we can be seen. And I would have a very similar job to the one that my father Dusty Rhodes had when I was growing up. That phone call really changed everything.”
We will have to wait and see if AEW will finally pull the trigger and make Cody Rhodes a heel once and for all, now that he is the TNT Champion.
