All Elite Wrestling Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes was recently a guest on the Joe Cronin Show, where he was asked about the fans at this past Sunday night’s WWE Hell In A Cell PPV Event chanting “AEW!”, “bulls–t!” and “refund!” during and after the main event matchup.
The main event saw WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins retain his WWE Universal Title over “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt in a controversial manner when Seth Rollins bashed “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt’s head in with a sledgehammer while Wyatt was buried under a pile of debris in the middle of the ring and the match was suddenly stopped.
This is what Cody Rhodes said: “I mean when those come up, I wasn’t watching the pay-per-view, but when those come up, your phone starts blowing up and your social starts blowing up.” “Whenever the crowd chants something, whether it’s boring, whether it’s a promotion, whether it’s your name, it means they want to be rewarded with something. That’s just kind of when you’re in the ring wrestling 101 and we know that we want to reward them.”
“So it was, it was flattering. I wouldn’t be one to gloat about it only because I know that one of the guys in that match got concussed and this job ain’t that easy, but nevertheless whenever we hear those chants, it’s more validation that what we’re doing and what we’ve been saying about this market existing, it’s real.”
