If there’s one thing to be learned from today’s first episode of The Road to All Out is to make sure to never call Shawn Spears “a good hand.” Cody Rhodes suffered for that comment dearly at Fyter Fest when Spears nailed Cody with a controversial chair shot to the head, that busted him open.
Shawn Spears requested interview time with Jim Ross to explain actions and also reveal that he had added one of the greatest heels in wrestling history, Tully Blanchard, as an Exclusive Advisor in AEW.
Certainly Tully and Cody’s father, the late “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes, had an incredible feud in the 80’s and adding the former member of the Four Hoursemen to the current story line between Cody and Spears will only enhance to the build up to their most likely showdown at All Out in Chicago.
Below is AEW’s presser sent out regarding Shawn Spears and Tully Blanchard’s new business arrangement.
Shawn Spears Secures Wrestling Legend Tully Blanchard as Exclusive Advisor in AEW
(July 18, 2019) – During last night’s episode of AEW’s “The Road to All Out,” Shawn Spears unveiled the ace up his sleeve in the form of legendary wrestling villain Tully Blanchard. Effective immediately, Blanchard has entered into a multi-show agreement with Spears and AEW.
Blanchard, a second generation star who is widely considered one of the most notorious and treacherous wrestlers of all time, was a member of the world renowned Four Horsemen, the NWA World Television Champion and holder of multiple tag team titles.
“Shawn Spears’ new advisor Tully Blanchard is a legendary retired wrestler and a canny tactician known worldwide for his vicious streak and penchant for chicanery,” said Tony Khan, President and CEO of AEW. “Given the challenge that Shawn has issued to Cody for a match at ALL OUT as well as the long, bitter history between Tully and the Rhodes family, plus Shawn’s recent behavior in AEW, it appears that Tully Blanchard has a great deal of influence over Shawn’s intents and actions. This indicates that going forward Shawn Spears will be one of the most feared and unpredictable wrestlers in AEW.”
