Cody had a conversation of sorts with a fan who had issues with the women’s match announced for Dynamite and addressed claims that they are letting people guide AEW’s direction. As you can see below, Cody got replied to while hyping the previously-announced Hikaru Shida vs. Kris Statlander match for this week for people not being familiar with who they are.

When Cody pointed out that both of them have been on AEW TV and Shida is a top five in the rankings, another fan joined in and referred to Dave Meltzer as Cody’s “boy.” Cody denied that, which led to the fan saying that Tony Khan was “listening to [Meltzer] into the ground.”

Cody continued to engage, saying that their “entire infrastructure is public. Who’s doing what and so forth,” and that “We will rise or fall based on our own merit. The right way.” You can see the full exchange, up to the point where Cody stopped responding, below.

Do you have vignettes to introduce them? Because most people watching have no idea who they are. Even Jim Ross doesn’t know who they are.

???

Both these talented women have been on the show before. Shida is in the top-5.

They lose again in the ratings and THIS IS what they do?

I cant believe that this man who’s dad was all about character (whom his boy Meltzer BURIED EVERY CHANCE HE GOT) Does not get that CHARACTER AND STORIES ARE HOW YOU GET FANS. It’s just mindboggling

@CodyRhodes
Why am I tagged in this friend?

I’m not Meltzer(he’s been equally critically of me…remember all in and how it started ha?). I’m also not my dad.

No need to stir up drama on a random Monday night. This is a beautiful time to be a wrestler and a fan. Do the work & have fun.

Look man, this is not coming out of hate or anything close, I’ve stated many times that I want NOTHING but success for you guys, its great for fans for you know who to have competition.

Maybe your not a Meltzer guy, but your leader is and Is listening to him into the ground.

Cody Rhodes

@CodyRhodes
That’s nonsense. Our entire infrastructure is public. Who’s doing what and so forth. I know that’s a “brand” narrative, but it’s 100% not accurate. We will rise or fall based on our own merit. The right way.

What’s the “Brand Narrative” The fact that he IS ON TAPE, saying he is a subscriber him and bases his ideology and model on what he says?

Come on, Cody, you know that there is this thing can tapes and the internet right?

@CodyRhodes
😐

You know that I’m the actual human being in the actual company having a polite discourse and telling you what’s real right ha?

There’s not much more I can do than that.
