Cody Rhodes issued a statement on Twitter on the official unveiling of All Elite Wrestling. In his statement, Rhodes confirmed he will be Executive Vice President of the promotion with The Young Bucks and "a few familiar names."
Below is his official statement.
I feel so damn lucky. I believe that more than talent... more than chance... work ethic will guide me where I'd like to go.
To be Executive Vice President for our new venture, and to be flanked by Matt and Nick and a few familiar names sharing that position: this is my dream job.
I can't think of a time when so many of wrestling's top free agents all opted out of the road usually traveled and instead wanting to start something new. I am excited to see AEW into existence.
What's old isn't new - what's new is new. Perception isn't reality - reality is reality. Fans first.
