The latest episode of Being The Elite is a special look back at the year that was in 2018. That includes the guys sitting down and talking about it, of course, but they also look ahead to the future. Notably, Cody Rhodes had this to say:
“I just want to thank everybody. Thank every fan I met, every fan I didn’t meet. This has been the best year of my career. I know a lot of people think what we’re getting ready to do is a big gamble, some people think it’s very stupid, but I’m not filled with false hope. You, the fans, have given me real hope, and that’s what it takes for a revolution. I’ve already said too much.”
I mean, we all know All Elite Wrestling is happening but no one had really gone on record in this way. The “stupid” he speaks of likely revolves around the rumor that The Elite turned down seven figure contracts with WWE to try to get this new promotion up and going as a real competitor to WWE.
It’s only stupid if it fails, right?
