Cody Rhodes Responds To Fan Who Called AEW An "Abomination"

They went back and forth...

Since holding their first show in May 2019, All Elite Wrestling has been praised by many and their weekly TV show Dynamite is watched by over one million people across the globe. 

The young promotion does have it's detractors, though, and one such detractor @NWAfan336 replied to a FITE TV tweet about All In and called AEW an "abomination."

They wrote: "Ah yes, the start of the crime that has been perpetrated on professional wrestling. This birthed the abomination that is AEW. A dark day indeed."

The tweet prompted a response from AEW EVP Cody Rhodes, who replied: "I mean this day bettered the wrestling economy and QOL standards for an entire industry, so no matter which way you shake it... a great day in our history. (Not unlike the days Dream had those 3 initials on your mask white hot and fans got better wrestling and the boys got rich)."

@NWAfan336 then wrote: "And we'll see what the long term economic impact is. Certainly good for the Bucks SoCal friends but the industry overall? Remains to be seen."

Cody wrote back: "??? It's already been seen. Every company has had to up their financial commitment, duration, and QOL elements in their contracts. Wrestlers and their families like to eat and expand their target audience from 1 promoter to millions of fans. It's the best time to be a fan."

Following this, both men continued to write back and forth over a 24-hour period, which you can read here and here.
