During his Starrcast panel with the Young Bucks, AEW VP Cody Rhodes was asked about the growing women’s division within the promotion. Rhodes would respond by praising Kylie Rae and Britt Baker (AEW signees) but would then make a comment about that seemed to be a shot at the WWE SmackDown women’s champion Bayley.
Somebody was sent to Chicago to interview Kylie and, man, what a ball of emotion. That’s what we want. It’s someone passionate, and it’s not like wacky inflatable tube men pretending to be nice.
When Rhodes was questioned online about his unnecessary shot at the Hugger, he clarified that he thinks Bayley is awesome, and that his response was merely poking fun at wacky inflatable tube-men.
Made a crack about the wacky inflatable tubeman. Meant no harm. She’s awesome. https://t.co/YrzzxHuPmu
