Cody Rhodes wants free agents in AEW who can ‘move the needle’

Last updated

AEW EVP and former WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes recently discussed what he is looking for in free agents for All Elite Wrestling to sign.

Speaking during a recent AEW conference call, the former TNT Champion revealed that he wants people to join the company who are capable of ‘moving the needle.’

‘I tell a lot of my peers in wrestling you can’t wish away good talent, especially when you get in a groove as a talent yourself” Cody Rhodes began. “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’m not saying this from the company’s perspective. Personally, I think you have to go after them” Rhodes added.

“Does that change the landscape of the show and the roster? For sure. But that is one of the areas where, as much as things can get personal, it is business, and no one is immune from that’ Cody Rhodes would conclude.
