Cody Rhodes Is Likely To Be With AEW For The Long Haul

Cody Rhodes is one of the founding members of AEW. Cody was the one who initially took it to heart when Dave Meltzer said that anyone outside of the WWE would not be able to sell out a 10,000 seat arena, Well as we all know it happened at All In and, in record time leading eventually to the creation of what we know now as AEW.

Cody recently sat down with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated. He was asked about his future in AEW. The American Nightmare was forthcoming and direct with his answer.

“As of now, my future is with AEW. AEW would be very strange without the core members of the revolution. We all still talk. We all have this admiration for each other. I can’t see myself anywhere else, and I’m very optimistic about what the future holds.”

The Young Bucks two other founding members of the company recently signed new five-year contracts with the company but it is currently unknown if Rhodes has resigned any deal.

Cody was also asked about his immediate goals. He says he is mostly concerned with ratings. He also stated he wants the #1 spot in the PWI 500.

“I have a lot of data-based goals. I ask Chris Harrington, our SVP, a really good number for a demo average. I always say I want to make AEW destination programming, and that’s numbers-based to me. And I’ve never shared this before, but I really thought that the PWI No. 1 spot had been mine once before, and I was shocked, genuinely, that I didn’t pick it up.

That may sound silly, but I care about that, and I’m willing to say I care—the people that say they don’t, they typically care a lot about it, too. The AEW world championship is out of the question for me, but there are other goals that, for now, I’ll keep close to the chest.”

We will have to see which way AEW will take Codys Character as he has recently been taking a lot of heat from fans. Cody Rhodes will take on Andrade El Idolo on tonight’s AEW Dynamite in an Atlanta Street Fight.
