Cody Rhodes recently spoke with Bleacher Report ahead of his TNT title march against Darby Allin at AEW Full Gear tonight. He said he feels very strongly about the card, and it could be a defining PPV for the one-year-old company.
“I think this could end up being the PPV that defines us. The Bucks vs. FTR is a match that has been building for many years. Page and Omega are two of the best bell-to-bell wrestlers ever. You have Jon Moxley with Eddie Kingston. You have John Silver vs. Orange Cassidy for that meta-loving fan. I think everyone has the intention of stealing the show.”
Cody further appraised Full Gear and pro wrestling in general, noting the ways it can appeal to both fans and non-fans.
“With everything that is going on, you are guaranteed some sort of satisfaction. The one thing pro wrestling can always provide, which sports like boxing and MMA can’t always provide, is a payoff to what we are doing.
“You will absolutely fall in love with somebody. You don’t have to love wrestling, but there will be a wrestler that you will fall in love with, and you should absolutely give it a try.”
AEW Full Gear takes place tonight at 8 PM EST, live from Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, FL. Pre-Show begins at 7. We will have live converge tonight on Pro Wrestling News Hub.
