Cody Rhodes On Relationship With ROH’s Joe Koff, ALL IN Being In Chicago, Double or Nothing and more

AEW superstar and Excecutive VP Cody Rhodes took part in an AEW media call earlier this week. Here are some topics that were discussed.

AEW’s relationship with Joe Koff from ROH:

We – me, Matt and Nick – have such a great relationship with Joe Koff and ROH. Originally, it was kinda complicated but they did so much to help All In,” said Cody. “From loaning us Gary Chester to helping us handle backup house arrangements. The fact that they let us breach contract to do it, they’re a huge part of it.

Who owns the rights to the “ALL IN” name:

The name All In does not belong to ROH. The name All In belongs to Killing The Business which is Matt and Nick and Dana Massey.

AEW returning to the MGM Grand for the second Double or Nothing PPV:

The MGM Grand is a magical place and we’ll be back not only for Double or Nothing but for an encore with Dynamite that Wednesday,” said Cody. “It’s really special. I hope I don’t spoil this but going from Saturday to Wednesday, we’re going to load those days up with AEW as well. We want the entire wrestling world to come to Vegas for Memorial Day Weekend and our return to MGM Grand.

AEW’s relationship with the city and fans of Chicago:

Chicago was the first place for me Matt and Nick with All In. We wanted the best chance to succeed and we thought Chicago would be the city for it,” Cody said before adding that there’s something unique about Chicago even though it hasn’t always been the hottest spot for wrestling. I’m not sure where it started or if it started with that WrestleMania they did at All-State where the crowd level of involvement had its own identity. Just like a Philly wrestling crowd always had its own identity, Chicago all of a sudden has its own identity as a crowd which is so much fun as a competitor.I’m one of the most loyal people on earth – it’s my best trait – and I’m gonna be loyal to Chicago for the entire future of AEW. That’s the place where we got started and was the spark for something people still are arguing isn’t real for how popular wrestling is across the globe. That means Chicago is always gonna have our flag in the sand and we hope to give Chicago the best possible shows.
