Cody Rhodes confirms Executive Vice President role at the new AEW promotion
Cody Rhodes has confirmed that he will be the Executive Vice President of All Elite Wrestling, the new promotion financed by Tony Khan, the son of Jacksonville Jaguars and Fulham F.C. owner and billionaire Shahid Khan.
Cody, whose vision led to the All In indie pay-per-view back in September 2018, will be involved in the running of the promotion, taking key decisions with the rest of management.
“I feel so damn lucky. I believe that more than talent…more than chance…work ethic will guide me where I’d like to go,” Cody wrote on Twitter. “To be Executive Vice President for our new venture, and to be flanked by Matt and Nick and a few familiar names sharing that position; this is my dream job. I can’t think of a time when so many of wrestling’s top free agents all opted out of the road usually traveled and instead wanted to start something new. I am excited to see AEW into existence.”
He also added, “What’s old isn’t new – what’s new is new. Perception isn’t reality – reality is reality. Fans first.”
A rally at the TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, Florida, was announced for Tuesday, January 8 at 5PM EST where the event will be used to provide more information about the promotion and the Double or Nothing show, the sequel to All In.
