Cody Rhodes: An AEW Stadium Show Is A Goal Of Mine
What's next for AEW after Arthur Ashe?
It can’t be denied that AEW are currently on a roll. Impressive TV numbers, potential mega signings, and a huge Chicago show in the pipeline, it seems the only way is up.
For AEW EVP Cody Rhodes though, there are still goals for him and the company, including a show in a stadium.
During a media call ahead of AEW Dynamite Homecoming, Cody was asked about a move to stadium shows by Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp, with Cody saying:
"The idea of a stadium show, that would be a really good goal for me and I would hope would be a goal for AEW. To a degree, we're doing it with Arthur Ashe, which is unreal. It's such a great building, there's not a bad seat in the house. We're at the point now where we're like, 'Could we? What could we put on? What could we call it?' It's something, I can't say it's formally been discussed, but we're all thinking it.
“I know a few places that I thought would be great for a stadium show that haven't been touched on. This is just me saying it; Miller Park [American Family Field, Milwaukee] is a unique venue that sits between a massive stadium show and an intimate vibe. That's something I'm interested in, but I can't speak for the whole company as far as where we're looking and hat we have laid out. It would be wonderful to do a stadium show, which we are doing with Arthur Ashe, but to do another large one. Those become destinations. All the Independent shows that join up with it. The Cons that come with it. It feels like a natural extension of the original All In, which was the Woodstock of wrestling, is a big stadium show. No plans currently, but it's a personal goal for me."
If AEW ever ventured to the UK, there is always the possibility of running Fulham FC’s Craven Cottage in London, thanks to Fulham being owned by The Khan Family.
