Cody Rhodes has promised that he will give AEW wrestlers honest advice if they’re considering a potential move to WWE.
Speaking to Ariel Helwani of BT Sport, Rhodes argued that only certain people fit WWE’s ‘superstar mode’, believing that the company’s schedule is not for everyone.
Comparing WWE with AEW, Rhodes said:
“I would only give somebody honest advice. That might be right for somebody. This was right for me. I don’t know when the first…I think I know who those people will be because there are certain people who fit this ‘superstar mode,’ I think I know how the types might be and when they ask, I’m going to give them the best advice I possibly can.
“I can say though, that the schedule here, at the least the schedule I had the first time, is not for the non-committed, you can’t be one foot. It is a full-time commitment. You’re not getting paid to work one day a week. That’s not knocking anybody who is. That might be the biggest shock and change.
“The structure here is positive. It’s a wonderful structure. It’s a little less punk rock, and punk rock is great, and then you want to play something else. That’s what I experienced.
“When they start coming and talking, I’m sure people will make the transition. You’ll probably guess some of the people who will come over and, undoubtedly, people like Bryan (Danielson) and Adam Cole, people will make that move there.
“It is a healthy thing. It doesn’t seem healthy when you watch the show because all we’re doing is talking trash about each other, which I really hope nobody here does because it’s lazy, it’s lazy, and you’re discrediting what’s built and what got me.
“You’re discrediting me and you’re incorrect in the sense that it doesn’t matter. I’ll always give the best advice because this schedule is not for everybody. WWE made it, WWE and Nick Khan specifically made it so easy.
“There’s a bus, your family, your wife, your daughter, red carpet. With that red carpet means it’s time to get to work. I’m curious how I’ll do it, but I’ll never do it in terms of leveraging. I can only give honest advice because everyone’s path is different.”
Rhodes returned to WWE during WrestleMania 38 Saturday, after leaving AEW in February. Cody has revealed when he started to seriously consider a WWE move, which you can read more about right here.
