After Cody Rhodes' shocking farewell from AEW, Tony Schiavone spoke about him and his wife. A little over a week ago it was announced that Cody and Brandi Rhodes would be leaving All Elite Wrestling, a federation they had helped build from scratch.
The news caused amazement in the wrestling world, but now Tony Schiavone wanted to have his say on both exits.
Tony Schiavone: "I'm also very surprised by their goodbyes"
On the last two goodbyes from AEW: “Cody Rhodes, for me, was one of the faces of AEW.
As we know, Cody was the one who put me in touch with Tony Khan. After he put me in touch with Tony I signed with them, but it's all thanks to Cody. They still remain very attached to him and his family. We have made many bus trips together in Jacksonville.
I consider him and Brandi to be great friends. Today we are a better company thanks to them and I would like to wish the best for the future of both, thanking them for what they have done. They played an important role in what AEW has now become.
After getting over the shock, I realized that this is wrestling too, such a thing can happen. This is the first to leave our company, but it is one of the biggest names to leave our federation, which is why we are all surprised.
I personally am very surprised. Most think he will go to WWE. I don't know anything about it, I've just seen one of those wacky sites that confirm this”. Tony Schiavone is an experienced wrestling commentator, with his resume spanning the then World Wrestling Federation, Jim Crockett Promotions and World Championship Wrestling, the latter saw him as a key voice during Monday Night Wars.
After being at IMPACT Wrestling and for two years with Major League Wrestling, Tony Schiavone has now announced that he will stay with AEW until at least 2024. Despite numerous speculations that Cody Rhodes will return to WWE, 'The American Nightmare' remains for the moment a free agent with his last match aired on January 26 at Dynamite, where he lost the TNT title in the ladder match against Sammy Guevara.
