Cody Rhodes has commented on AEW All In.
Back in 2018, the winds of change were blowing through the wrestling business as Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks put their money where their mouth was and funded the original All In show.
That event sold 10,000 tickets in 30 minutes, selling out the Sears Center in Chicago as stars from almost every major wrestling company in the world came together for the biggest night of independent wrestling seen in decades.
Now, five years later Tony Khan has taken that spirit and went All In as AEW gets set to run Wembley Stadium in London, England in front of over 80,000 fans. The Young Bucks will be on that show challenging FTR for the AEW Tag Team Championship but Cody Rhodes will only watch on as he returned to WWE in 2022.
Speaking on a Reddit AMA, Cody Rhodes commented on AEW’s All In effort and says he’s proud of The Young Bucks for helping take their concept to a whole other level and reveals it was his sister who named the original show:
“I will be working that day, but I am very happy for the guys and girls competing out there. I am proud of Matt/Nick for taking our creation to another level. Also shout out to my sister, Teil, who named the event, and Joe Koff at ROH for helping us and allowing us the chance to do it ourselves.”
What did Cody Rhodes do at the first All In?
Cody Rhodes was front and center of the first All In event but his bout did not headline the show. The American Nightmare was the one star everyone was talking about afterwards anyway as he defeated Nick Aldis to win the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship in a hugely emotional match.
