During his recent interview with FITE in FOCUS AEW superstar and TNT champion Cody Rhodes spoke about the diverse AEW roster, and how he prefers storytelling and interviews over in-ring action. Highlights are below.
Says he prefers storytelling and interviews over in-ring action:
I know that I’m in the minority, in terms of what I like in wrestling. I like storytelling and interviews. I’ll use WrestleMania 3 as an example. I like Hogan vs. Andre. I also like Steamboat/Savage, but I still like Hogan vs. Andre more, and I love Steamboat vs. Savage, but I know there are wrestling fans, and there are people in management, who like the latter more, and that’s what I like about AEW.
How AEW does not have one-dimensional wrestlers on the roster:
There really is something for everybody. You will hear all these other luminary wrestling figures tell you that you can’t do that/you’ve got to have one singular focus and I think that’s just BS. We don’t have one [one-dimensional] wrestler on the roster. It’s a very diverse palate. The table has a lot of different dishes on it and I think that’s really good for fans.
