During a recent interview, Dax was asked about how he felt regarding the way that WWE has been pushing Cody Rhodes. In response, he admitted that it would be a complete lie to say that it doesn’t affect his thinking, given the situation that arose with AEW and Cody.
As it was publicly known, WWE had the opportunity to snatch up Cody and utilize him in any way they saw fit, as he wouldn’t have been able to return to AEW. However, upon seeing the way that WWE has taken Cody seriously and allowed him to become a big star, Dax and Cash Wheler found themselves analyzing the situation more than they would have before.
“If I told you no, then that’d be a complete lie because it was pretty out in the open what happened with AEW and Cody. So WWE could have snatched him up and really done whatever they wanted to because he wouldn’t be able to come back to AEW. But seeing that they took him seriously and they have allowed him to be a big star definitely had me and Cash analyzing it way more than we would have before.
They’ve done a great job with him and Cody has done a great job with himself too. He’s been given the opportunities, but it’s all about what you do with the opportunities because he could have been given an opportunity and just squandered it. But he believes in himself, man. I’m very, very close with Cody. We talk probably, at the very least we talk once a week, and I’m very proud of him, and I’m sure he’s proud of us as well. But yes, it definitely made us reevaluate the things we could possibly do in the future.”Dax Harwood
