Tony Schiavone Comments On Cody & Brandi Rhodes Exiting AEW

The Rhodes’ shockingly departed AEW last week

Cody and Brandi Rhodes’ shock departure from AEW took many in and out of the industry by surprise, including some in AEW itself.

One such name is Tony Schiavone, with the AEW Colour Commentator giving his thoughts on the seismic exit on the What Happened When podcast:

“Cody Rhodes to me was one of the faces of AEW. Cody was the one who got me in touch with Tony Khan, and that’s why I signed,” Schiavone said. “Of course, I’m very close to the family. We took many bus rides together to Jacksonville. I consider him and Brandi friends. I think we’re a better organisation today because of them. I would like to wish them both the best and thank them for what they did for me. They played a major role in what AEW is. But, after you get over the shock of it, you kind of think, ‘You know what? It’s wrestling. It happens.’

“This is the first one that’s left our company, but it’s one of our biggest names that left the company, so that’s why it’s the biggest shock. I’m very surprised and I hope he does well.”
