AEW's Cody Rhodes: "I'm Aware Of Jacob Fatu At MLW”
“I'm aware of these things that are happening in our industry.”
Wrestling can, at times, be a very insular industry, but in a wrestling climate where stars are bouncing from company to company through the forbidden door, it is unwise to be so narrow focused.
AEW EVP Cody Rhodes understands this, and revealed to In The Kliq podcast that he keeps abreast of everything happening in the pro wrestling bubble:
“The number one thing I learned, other than to reconnect with the fans and get the love from them that I had I needed at the time, the number one thing I learned is not to be in a bubble. For a decade I had been in the bubble of WWE and then the fact that AEW was able to happen proves that there were things far outside the bubble, there might even have been a bigger bubble. But even with that, ‘Okay, I can't get into a bubble in New Japan. I can't get into a bubble in IMPACT. I can't get into a bubble in Ring of Honor.' All great places, but wrestling has to be for everybody, It really does. It has to represent everybody. That's the number one thing is not to just be this single company individually bubbled up basically unaware of what's out there. Prime example, I'm aware of Jacob Fatu at MLW. I'm aware of these things that are happening in our industry and I think everyone from top to the bottom, Tony Khan at the top, is aware of what's out there and how perhaps we can connect to it.”
