Lexis King Addresses Cody Rhodes & Former AEW Stars Meeting On WWE NXT

Lexis King Addresses Cody Rhodes & Former AEW Stars Meeting On WWE NXT WWE

Cody Rhodes made an appearance on the June 11 episode of WWE NXT and announced a match to decide the next opponent for Trick Williams.

The full segment can be seen below this news story, with Rhodes announcing a 25-man battle royal to determine the number one contender for the NXT Championship.

As Rhodes states, the match will feature wrestlers from “other locker rooms”, which has led some to believe that WWE fans could see more TNA Wrestling talent in NXT.

That crossover wasn’t the only thing that was seen last night at NXT with a photo of Rhodes and three former AEW stars, all currently signed by WWE, reuniting.

In the photo, which can be seen below, Rhodes, Ethan Page, Shawn Spears and Lexis King all recreate that famous Spider-Man meme.

King has commented on the photo of the four together, saying:

“The Elite 4 👑#pokemon”

It wasn’t just a photo opportunity, either, with Spears, Page and King setting their sights on the upcoming battle royal and, as can be seen in the video below, Rhodes noting that it “seems like you guys are in a good place.”

Rebel, currently signed with AEW, was also reportedly spotted backstage at last night’s WWE NXT.
