A top WWE star has admitted that he watched AEW Revolution on a “pirated” stream.
In 2022, one of the AEW EVPs Cody Rhodes left the company and returned to WWE. Rhodes instantly became one of the top babyfaces for the company in his feud with Seth Rollins.
Despite his departure, Cody retained a close relationship with a number of AEW stars and has admitted to keeping tabs on his former promotion.
Speaking with Good Karma Wrestling podcast, Rhodes revealed that he watched a good portion of the recent AEW Revolution 2023 event on a “pirated feed.” Cody said:
“I actually only saw some highlights from Ricky. I had a pirated feed, which I probably should have just figured out how to get the right feed. Not going to tell you who sent me that.”
On his thoughts on his friend Ricky Starks’ performance against Chris Jericho on the show, Rhodes stated:
“I thought Ricky did great, really proud of him. You know, Chris Jericho is an absolute legend — he’s more than a legend, he’s Chris Jericho. And for Ricky to be able to deal with that and handle that in the way he did; very proud of Ricky.”
Cody has stated in the past that he views a number of the young stars on the All Elite Wrestling roster as “his kids.” On the other stars he is proud of, Rhodes said:
“Very proud of Julia [Hart], proud of Malakai [Black] actually. Because he was somebody that I loved our interactions with, and I wanted to see more of that Malakai and it’s been a minute.”
“So to see him deliver [was great]. FTR guys, I saw — and then all my other kids. I ain’t gonna name them, because I ain’t gonna to put him over.”
“All my other kids who — one of them was out there in the main event, and we don’t have to be best friends or anything. But just very proud of their growth and their continued growth.”
Cody Rhodes is scheduled to challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania 39 this April.
