Cody Rhodes on Getting the Casual Fans

Cody Rhodes is currently one of the Executive Vice Presidents of All Elite Wrestling. All Elite Wrestling is a brand new wrestling promotion that is backed by a billionaire. Many people believe that AEW will bring a Monday Night Wars type of era.

Of course, AEW has a long way to go before they can compete with the WWE. Ever since the end of the Monday Night Wars, people have been talking about what would it take to bring the casual fan back to wrestling? Many people think that the casual fans can help a professional wrestling promotion generate money.

Cody Rhodes was on the Busted Open Radio, where he spoke about casual fans. He stated that AEW isn’t targeting casual fans, but only time will tell what kind of fan the AWE attracts. "You guys have heard the term 'casual fan.'

Oh, how are they going to get the 'casual fan'? I honestly threw up in my mouth every time I heard it because it's this vernacular to describe wrestling that it is based on the Monday Night Wars," said Cody.

"When the Monday Night Wars are over, they are not a thing, and are not happening here and now in the present. What is happening in the here and now is not something we can determine what it is, it's something only history will be able to tell us”.
