Arn Anderson has discussed his relationship with Cody Rhodes.Anderson has been Rhodes’ coach in AEW since he joined the company in 2020.

Speaking on his podcast, ARN, the former Four Horsemen opened up about being Rhodes’ coach and his approach to making his charge better.

Anderson explained:

“I will say this, coaching Cody has been a great experience for me. It’s not always a lot of fun, as he will tell you. Y’know having an old b*****d like me chewing his ass out for something he thought wasn’t a big deal, probably is new to his world. It’s part of his world because when he asked me to come in, that’s what I told him, ‘I’m not a yes man’. I’m not a ‘everything is rosy guy’. You want the truth, I’ll tell you the truth and make you better. That’s going just well, [it] doesn’t need to be fixed right now. It’s one of those things that just is evolving, so we’ll see […] it’ll be worth your wait.”

Cody will team with Red Velvet to take on Jade Cargill and Shaquille O’Neal on the March 3rd edition of Dynamite.‘Shaq’ recently had some strong words for Cody on TNT’s Inside The NBA programme.
