WWE star Goldust has high hopes for the newly launched AEW (All Elite Wrestling) promotion that involves his younger brother Cody, who will serve as the Executive Vice President alongside with The Young Bucks. AEW President Tony Khan will be the head of the creative team.
AEW’s first-ever show is set to take place from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 25th. The pay-per-view event will be called “Double Or Nothing.”
The former WWE Intercontinental Champion spoke with Kyle Stevens of Still Real To Us for a new interview where he discussed various topics including the challenges that Cody faces with this new role as well as the advice he has for him with this new venture.
“I can’t wait to see what he does with it. I’m very proud. I know dad right now is just grinning ear-to-ear and is very proud of Cody. Cody has a lot of my dad in him in the sense of business. He’s got just about the whole package. Let’s just put it like that. Cody has everything that dad has. He just has to grow a little more, and learn just a little bit more as far as the business is concerned.”
Goldust continued by stating, “[Cody is] going to come across some issues with things like booking; a lot like dad did. Not everyone is going to like him because he’s the booker. If he can learn from dad’s mistakes, and what dad did, I think he’s going to be fine. The landscape of the pro wrestling industry has changed a lot. Let’s all make some money, let’s grow something and watch something take off. I think it will. You got some big people behind it. Tony Khan is a big dog.”
