Cody Rhodes On AEW Revolution, Says He’s Proud Of His Kids

Cody Rhodes still keeps an eye on what’s going on in All Elite Wrestling.

The American Nightmare was a recent guest on Good Karma Wrestling to discuss a wide variety of subjects. When asked if he saw any of AEW Revolution earlier this month, Rhodes admitted he saw some highlights from the Ricky Starks match against Chris Jericho.


“I only saw some highlights from Ricky. I had a pirated feed, which I probably should have just figured out how to get a right fee,” Cody Rhodes admitted. “I thought Ricky did great; I was very proud of him. Chris Jericho’s an absolute legend. He’s more than a legend; he’s Chris Jericho. For Ricky to be able to deal with that and handle that in the way he did, I’m very proud of Ricky.”

Rhodes also put over other names like Julia Hart, Malakai Black, and FTR, wanting it known that he’s very proud of his “kids” in All Elite Wrestling.

“I’m very proud of Julia [Hart],” Cody Rhodes continued. “Just seeing her. I’m proud of Malakai [Black], actually, because he was somebody that I loved our interaction with, and I wanted to see more of that Malakai, and it’s been a minute. So to him deliver…

“FTR guys, I saw. Then all my other kids. I ain’t gonna name them because I ain’t gonna put them over, but all my other kids, one of them is out there in the main event. We don’t have to be best friends or anything, but just very proud of their growth and their continued growth.

While All Elite Wrestling still relies on traditional pay-per-view and Bleacher Report in the United States, Rhodes likes the capability of how easy WWE‘s premium live events are to access on Peacock. He also couldn’t resist taking a subtle jab at Bleacher Report and other streaming platforms that have issues airing other companies’ pay-per-views.

“One of the benefits of working with WWE is like, oh, it’s on Peacock. You go on Peacock, it’s right there,” Cody Rhodes said. “Anywhere else I’ve wrestled, whether it’s New Japan, anywhere else, these interfaces are a disaster. They’re a disaster, guys. I love, like FITE TV, alright, I like FITE TV. That one, at least they got some of the… but come on.”

When NJPW World is brought up, Rhodes admits he still pays for that and puts over how big professional wrestling is all over the world right now.

“They take ten dollars from me like every week, and I don’t remember what I signed up for,” Cody Rhodes said. “But hey, whatever. Everyone’s learning; we’re growing. WrestleMania is the biggest numbers-wise, metrics-wise, that it’s ever been. That just brings up the whole business, and I’m beyond blessed that I get to be in that position.”
