Ahead of his WrestleMania 39 match against Roman Reigns, Cody Rhodes has spoken about something that he regrets from his time in AEW.
During his time in AEW, the former Executive Vice President of the company wasn’t just an onscreen talent but also involved in community outreach and coaching of the younger talent.
Reflecting on his role in the company, Cody Rhodes recently spoke to Bleacher Report, saying:
“I was letting some of them beat me long before they should ever beat me.
“I wanted them to succeed, and I still do, but it wasn’t time for me to be a coach. It was time for me to be a player.”
AEW’s Ricky Starks has previously named Cody Rhodes as a mentor and had said he was “still able to go to” him for advice and support.
Starks was recently spotted backstage at WWE’s Royal Rumble, supporting his friend and mentor in an image that was shared on social media.
