Cody Rhodes Declares That He Won’t Ever Challenge For The AEW Title If He Loses At Full Gear

Cody Rhodes promised a big announcement for All Elite Wrestling Dynamite.

After being introduced by Tony Schiavone, Rhodes began his announcement. “I’m not surprised by the arrival of Chris Jericho and the Inner Circle,” said Rhodes. “They’ve taken a scalpel to the Elite.” He then said that AEW is Ellis Island for professional wrestlers and that it is freedom.

“When I hear the same criticism attached to my name for being management and in a title match, I can’t not hear it. With that said, if I do not defeat Chris Jericho at Full Gear, I will never challenge for the AEW World Championship again.”

He then went on to call Jericho a “carny succubus” and that he needs this generation more than they need him. “This isn’t about my dad, it’s about my life … the 14 years it took me to go from undesirable to un-god damn-deniable.”
