Cody Says Full Gear Could Define AEW

Cody Rhodes in AEW.

In a new interview with Chris Mueller of Bleacher Report, Cody has revealed that he thinks that Full Gear could define AEW.

Full Gear is set to come live from Daily’s Place, Jacksonville Florida on November 7th, with another stacked card. And Cody believes that it’s that depth and ability to provide something for everyone to enjoy, that could make this pay-per-view, the defining show for AEW.

“I think this could end up being the PPV that defines us. The Bucks vs. FTR is a match that has been building for many years. Page and Omega are two of the best bell-to-bell wrestlers ever. You have Jon Moxley with Eddie Kingston. You have John Silver vs. Orange Cassidy for that meta-loving fan. I think everyone has the intention of stealing the show.”

Cody also explains how pro wrestling differs from more traditional combat sports, and how that actually helps when it comes to providing an escape and a feeling of satisfaction at the end of a show.

“With everything that is going on, you are guaranteed some sort of satisfaction. The one thing pro wrestling can always provide, which sports like boxing and MMA can’t always provide, is a payoff to what we are doing. You will absolutely fall in love with somebody. You don’t have to love wrestling, but there will be a wrestler that you will fall in love with and you should absolutely give it a try.”

While Cody is set to defend his TNT Championship against Darby Allin, arguably the most anticipated matches will see Eddie Kingston challenge for the AEW Championship against Jon Moxley, and FTR take on The Young Bucks. A match which FTR have described as “the most important match is tag team wrestling history.”
