AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes has been making the media rounds to promote the launch of AEW’s weekly television show on TNT.
The first AEW on TNT show will take place at the Capital One Arena in Washington, DC on October 2nd. At this show, he’ll be wrestling Sammy Guevara in a singles match.
Rhodes made a recent appearance on The Apter Chat to speak with Bill Apter. In this interview, he talked about why he thinks he’ll be in the opening match.
“I think, as of looking at it now, I’ll probably be the very first match of the night,” Rhodes said. “Which has a special place in my mind but also thinking from a logistic and planning standpoint, it also makes it very easy for me to go sit down, put the headset on, and help Tony Khan and the other EVPs produce the rest of the show.”
Rhodes will be wrestling Sean Spears in one of the top matches at the AEW All Out pay-per-view event later this month.
