Cody Rhodes held a media conference call to hype up AEW Dynamite: Homecoming at Daily’s Place. Cody took questions from the media and was asked about the company’s interest in Bray Wyatt.
“The Rotunda family and the Rhodes family certainly go way back. I can’t comment on if I see a spot for him. But I can tell you [he’s] an incredibly creative individual and an incredibly creative man. I can’t comment on if he fits in with us, but I can say if he has an ounce of passion for this, that guy can fit in anywhere because he’s a very special, special talent,” Cody said.
WWE released Bray Wyatt over the weekend and it would seem like a no-brainer that Tony Khan would be interested signing a top talent with such a creative mind for the business.
Cody also addressed AEW’s current policy towards signing new stars when asked about the current size of the roster. “I tell a lot of my peers in wrestling and people I use as a sounding board, I always tell them, ‘you can’t wish away good talent,’ especially when you get in a groove as a talent yourself,” Rhodes said. “And it’s not unlike the world that Tony [Khan] comes from already, the world of the NFL and football in the UK. If there’s a free agent out there that can move the needle and be something significant for us… personally, I think you have to go after them. Does that change the landscape of the show and the roster? For sure, but that’s one of those things where as much as things can get personal, it is business. And no one is immune from that.” especially with the addition of Rampage.
