Anthony Ogogo Talks Off-Screen Relationship With Cody Rhodes

Last updated

AEW star and Olympic boxer Anthony Ogogo recently spoke to The Wrestling Inc. Daily. The Bronze medallist discussed a number of topics during the show, including what his off-screen relationship with Cody Rhodes is like.

‘Prior to me joining AEW, he was my favorite wrestler in the world,’ Ogogo said of Cody Rhodes. ‘I actually think the best wrestler in the world. He is genuinely, and before I got into the ring, I saw an AEW Dark. I commentated for six months, and I said 20 times in six months that Cody’s the best wrestler in the world, but Cody’s a yardstick.”

“I got to watch him daily at the trainer school training and putting the work in still even though he’s so good” Anthony Ogogo continued. “The way he can tell stories, the things he can do in a ring.”

‘He’s a big dude. He can do top-rope huricanrannas, which I wouldn’t. My a**hole squeezes up watching him do that” Ogogo joked. “I’m never going to do that. He’s really really good. I respect the hell out of him as a wrestler.”

“I respect the way he does his management” the former boxer added. “Since this thing kicked off, we haven’t spoken. Prior to that, I respect the way he managed me, I respect the way he signed me. I respect the way he went about talking to me.”

“He talks to me on my level rather than talking down to me, and I respect that” Ogogo finished. “He knows that I’m a man on my own way, and I’ve got respect on my name.’
