Cody Rhodes Talks Chairshot, His Future, More On AEW Unrestricted

The American Nightmare Cody Rhodes joins Tony Schiavone and Aubrey Edwards on the latest edition of the AEW Unrestricted Podcast. He talks use of his full name again and the story of how it happened. 

Rhodes also talks about AEW’s first year of TV, what he sees for the company’s future, the exciting young talent that he thinks will be breakout stars next year, and why he plans to stop wrestling at age 40!

Cody shares details behind the steel chair shot he took from Shawn Spears at Fyter Fest and what he said to Shawn just before they went to the ring.

He also recounts driving John Cena around while at WWE—and why he firmly believes that “nobody is a nobody” in professional wrestling.  

AEW’s Future

“In year 2, we’re going to make some big moves to expand the audience that are not so much moves that you would think we would make, but I’m excited about them.”

Cody’s Future

“For the next 5 years, I want to wrestle at the absolute highest level I can wrestle, be part of the building of new stars, but I’m not going to apologize if my run continues at its rate. I’m going to ride the lightning bolt until I can’t anymore.” 

Cody Steel Chair Shot

“I told him [Shawn Spears] to swing from the side, and the last words I told him were, ‘swing for the fences,’ and when I landed, I don’t know if you can make out in the camera shot, but when I landed, my head is so stiff from the shot that I land the awkward landing when you have two falls, I muttered, ‘swing for the fences.’”
