Cody Rhodes Responds To The Young Bucks AEW Founders Remarks

Cody Rhodes The Young Bucks All In

Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks don’t work in the same company anymore, but they remain friends due to their history together.

When All Elite Wrestling launched in January 2019, three of the Executive Vice Presidents in the company were Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks duo of Matt & Nick Jackson. Kenny Omega was the fourth EVP. That foursome worked together for a lot of wrestling promotions around the world and became very good friends.

Before AEW launched, Cody and The Bucks ran a very successful show called All In 2018 in Chicago that sold over 10,000+ tickets. Tony Khan wasn’t involved in that, but he was impressed by it and he joined the four wrestlers to launch AEW.

A lot has changed in the five years since then. Cody Rhodes went back to WWE in early 2022 to follow his dream of winning the WWE Championship. Cody will get a second chance to “finish his story” at WrestleMania 40 when he challenges Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title for the second year in a row.

As for The Young Bucks, they’ll face Sting & Darby Allin in the main event of AEW Revolution on March 3rd in Sting’s retirement match.

When talking to Sports Illustrated, Nicholas Jackson spoke about how proud The Young Bucks are of Cody’s success in WWE.

“Cody is the face of the WWE now, and it’s cool to see because we always knew how much of a star he was. The founders of AEW will always have a lifetime bond with each other because we all know what we did for wrestling. We talk every week and in a weird way him leaving made us grow more as friends.”

On X/Twitter, Cody Rhodes responded by posting a photo from The Lion King film as his way of showing they are friends.

The Young Bucks Will Continue Rooting For Cody Rhodes

In the same Sports Illustrated interview, Matthew Jackson made it clear that the brothers are going to keep supporting their buddy Cody Rhodes.

“AEW will always be our baby. It’s our life’s work. We sought out to change the world, and we did just that. We created a new workplace for so many deserving people. Tons of talented individuals received a spotlight that they may have not gotten otherwise. And several people’s careers were taken to new heights because of the sole existence of AEW.”

“We’re proud of the things we accomplished with Cody and happy to see him rising to the occasion. We’re all rooting for each other.”

AEW Revolution takes place this Sunday, March 3rd at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, NC and it’s available on pay-per-view.
