Following the confirmation of AEW, Cody released the following statement, outlining his role within the new promotion:

“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 travelled and instead wanted 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.”

The announcement was met with excited reactions across the world of wrestling, and 2019 is sure to be one of the most fascinating years in wrestling history.
